Have you ever visited a website that looked like a 10-year old designed it?
Unfortunately, this is a huge problem with many of the websites we see today - across all industries. If you own a business, your web design is crucial to generating new customers — and it can be the single most important element keeping you from increasing revenues!
Whether you like it or not, your potential customers use the Internet to find local products and services more than ever before. Customers of all ages and all demographics go right to their phone, laptop, tablet or desktop to find what they need. This means that your web design is more important than ever.
People Judge Your Business by How Your Website Looks
Were you aware that most people will judge the quality of your business by the quality of your website? A potential customer's first impression of your website determines whether they will look into your business further and contact you — or simply leave and search for another company.
Do your potential customers see old photos and out of date information when they visit your site? Are your graphics stunning or boring? Is your logo outdated, or is it fresh and modern? Does your website have a strong call to action? Is the phone number prominent? These are just a few of the things that can drive an interested customer away from your website and right into the hands of your competition.
Is Your Web Design Responsive on Mobile Devices?
Over 50% of all searches are performed on a mobile device like a smartphone or a tablet. Also, over 50% of Google results on mobile devices were different than those from the same search on a desktop device. Independent testing has shown that Google's updated algorithm slightly favors websites that provide mobile users with a favorable, and responsive experience.

Here are some things your web design must have:
- A modern design that creates a great first impression
- User-friendly navigation that makes things easy to find
- Your phone number listed at the top of the homepage

- Photos which speak to your potential customers
- Accreditations and memberships
