We've got six things about website design that you will wish you had known sooner. We just wish we could have told you sooner.
It's hard to stay up-to-date
It seems like every month there's a new trend in website design. Whether it's how you're supposed to arrange content to optimize SEO or how to best adapt your website to mobile devices, there's always something new. If you design your own website, be prepared to constantly be working on it.
Mobile is king
No matter how good your desktop website looks, you'll have to have a good mobile design. More people now use their smartphones and tablets rather then their desktop for typical web surfing. This trend won't likely reverse any time soon.
Responsive design is one of the best things to happen to website design. Instead of managing both two websites - desktop and mobile - you just have one. It's a sleek design that looks good on all devices and is good for SEO.
Speaking of SEO, web design plays an important role in your Google page rank. If you have a good web design, people are more likely to stay on your site longer. This, in turn, is good for your Google page rank. It's an indirect benefit, but it's still there.
Your website is the center of your online marketing
Whether you practice social media marketing, email marketing, or pay-per-click advertising, your website is the end destination for consumers. All of those other modes of marketing are just designed to take them to your website.
We saved the first and most important point for last. When consumers look you up online, the first impression they get of you is your website. Since you only get one first impression, you'll want to make sure your website experience is as good as it can be.
