When considering the design of your website, it can be thrilling to consider all the different elements to highlight your work or products. It’s important however to keep in mind these five key elements of a successful website that play a big role in your ability to share a cohesive presence.
Relevant Visuals. We all know that when we log onto any given website, that they are a mix of visual and text elements. No website should be just one; a balance of each goes a long way. When considering what visual elements to use (color, photos, enhanced text, overall design) it’s important they all work to support the message you want to convey.
Mobile-Friendly Operation. More often than not, your existing and potential clients or consumers are navigating to you on their mobile phones. If you are working with a designer, he or she should direct the seamless presentation and operation of your website on a mobile device. If you are utilizing a DIY website tool, be sure to verify an ability to create or manipulate it’s compatibility with a mobile device prior to investing in that platform.
User-Friendly Navigation. The way visitors experience your website is just as, if not more important as the way it looks. Visitors should be able to experience the various elements of your website with ease and conveniently find the information or products they seek. If they encounter overcomplicated, unnecessary or generally poor navigation it’s likely they will leave your website and venture to your competitors.
Quality Content. As with visuals, so with words. The content of your website is paramount to the expression of your brand- it literally speaks on your behalf to existing and potential clients and consumers. When you sit to write your website, take time to consider what you really want people to know about the services or products your offer.
Security. This is particularly important for e-commerce websites. The ability to securely receive payment from clients or customers through your site is paramount to the success of your business. Not only should you not know their sensitive information, it should be as protected as possible from hackers attempting to commit fraud.
