What Constitutes a Good Website - According to Your Web Design Company

I am not a good web designer. But I would love to share with you my ideas and opinions on the web design trends I am currently seeing these days. Your company website adds up to your credibility and trust level amongst your clients. Your hired professional web design company should be able to meet the qualifications needed to be able to create your desired website popularity.

Now, what are the factors that your hired professional and the best web design company should be doing to say that they are doing a great job and they are effective?

Your web design company should have knowledge of the latest techniques and technology in web design. One thing that they should be doing is to use the best practices that great web designers are doing.

1. A good web design company should create and should not forget to use tagline. What is a tagline? It is a statement or a company motto that represents the company's mission, vision or values. It is something that is very obvious and should be seen as soon as you have entered the company website.

2. They should be able to create a site search. This is even effective if you have a multi-paged website. It is a tool that you can use to easily direct your visitors to the page or topic that they are looking for.

3. For even easier navigation, use site maps. It is somehow new to some website owners most especially if their website is almost ten years old. Site maps are structural representations of each page on your website. It is a page title collected on one page and linked to the other pages on your website.

4. Easy to read pages on your website creates a big role in maintaining loyal visitors. It enables them to stay on your site and read the contents that you have inside. Survey says that most visitors do not usually read the contents of the website, what they do is they usually scan it by just reading the titles and looking at the emphasized text and sentences.

5. As much as possible, you should be avoiding captchas. There are some people who don't want to see captchas on the websites they are visiting. It's not that they are not human (because captcha says that if you are human you should be able to type in their captcha), but it is because they are not okay with the interruption it brings and the time that it consumes. We usually do not understand the font and the letters because it is usually not written the way that it should be written. So, bottom line is, do not use captcha.

There are a lot of web designers these days. They know many designs and they can do great designs but the way your website is created should be something that your visitors can be pleased with. Your visitors play a big part on enhancing your website's popularity. So the way you can help popularize your business website is to be able to know your visitors comments and suggestions towards it. I just hope that this article will help you on your planning and preparation. Do let me know if this article helped or not.
