The Importance Of Modern Web Design

We often hear people say that website design is simply how your website looks but it is actually a lot more than that.  It is your shop window, a way for your customers to see what it is that you offer and the prices you charge.  People will judge your product/service based on your website.

Technology moves very quickly, so being on the ball is important.

Responsive websites are best, as they automatically adapt to software updates from smart phones.

A good web design agency will ensure that every page is organised well.  In a form that’s consistent so that people can navigate effortlessly.  Having an up to date site-map is important.

The information on your web pages should also be displayed in an interesting and engaging way.  The use of pictures and infographics is also important.

Chunks of text or an overload of imagery will drive people away.  This flows into the branding of your company.  

What kind of message are you communicating to your customers?  What emotions do people have when they look at your site (or your brand)?

What Kind Of Web Platform Do You Need?

All websites are build on a web platform, but which web platform is right for you?

If your website is a shopping website, they maybe using the platform Shopify is wise?  If your website is an e-commerce website then perhaps WordPress.

There are lots of web platforms to choose from and new web platforms crop up.

Not all website designers work with all web platforms, some are only experienced with WordPress or Joomla, others maybe just one.

It is important that you get your website built on the best web platform for your business.

Why Is A Website Important?

Creative web design has come a long way in a very short space of time.  

Technology leaps mean that speed of page load is important, quality images or photos are important, and a call to action is necessary in order for you to retain customers.  

Your website also has to be mobile friendly for smartphones and tablets.

The reason is because search engines now rank websites based on the mobile usability over desktops.

A responsive website is ideal these days.  They automatically adapt to mobile phone software updates.

To be able to get people interested in your business and to use your services, you need to approach them with a user-friendly website which ticks all their needs as a consumer.  

You have one chance in most cases, to grab that new customer visiting your website, and while the website design is important, there are other factors which play a part in client conversions.

Can I Hire A Freelancer Rather Than A Web Design Agency?

Many businesses are attracted to the option of hiring freelancer in order to reduce cost.  

But freelancers often lack the technology and support that a professional website design agency would have.

Freelancers tend to be cheaper than using an agency, but do they have the technical know how that you require?

Of course, if you are only looking for something basic (say a website for £500) then a freelancer would be a better choice.

Website designers tend to only handle website design of £1000 upwards.

Different Kinds Of Website

There are different sorts of websites depending on what you need.

  • Template websites – A basic website design can either be free or an agency
  • Brochure style – Next level up, a small yet professional in look and feel
  • E-commerce sites – An online shop that has a payment gateway
  • CMS sites – Bespoke sites designed to a website brief

These are all on different web platforms (WordPress, Joomla, Wix etc.) but getting advice from different web designers about the platform and type of website is wise.

Don’t Forget Your Marketing

Once your website is produced, that is where the hard work starts, getting people to it.

Some web designers may also offer digital marketing to get you found on the search engines, some do not.

If you need quotes for digital marketing, we can help.  If you want both a website designer and digital marketing, just let us know and we will get you quotes to compare.

5 Things To Ask A Web Design Agency:

  1. What do you think of my website right now and what do you think needs urgent improvement?
  2. What website programs do you use to design with?  Wordpress, Joomla?
  3. How do you measure results of the work you do? Will you be able to publish and verify these results with me?
  4. Do you have a portfolio I can look at along with client testimonials?
  5. Do you offer additional services such as web development and SEO?

However, most importantly, how much is the website going to cost?  Web design prices vary because all web designers are privately owned, setting their own fees.  

Freelancers are cheaper than established web design agencies, however do they have the technical experience to produce a quality website that you require?

Web design agencies that are Google Partners may also demand more.
