Common mistakes top websites development companies avoid
A top website development company has not only reached the pinnacle of the web design industry through designing and delivering eye-catching, effective and affordable websites for UK businesses and organisations of all types, large and small; it also knows what not to include in a website’s design: the common mistakes so many other web design companies make.
The power of simplicity
So what is the difference between a successful website and one that fails to make money or to powerfully convey key messages and relevant information to its target audience? More often than not, the answer is simplicity.
A top website development company will understand that people these days are busier than ever; they need to find a website on the Net that offers the information or products/services they seek, and to be able to navigate around, read, and act on the information they find there quickly and easily.
So how does a top website design company do this?
Let’s find out!
Offering users an enjoyable experience
When a user arrives at a website after carrying out a Google search (or one through another search engine, such as Bing/MSN or Yahoo!), or through typing a website address into a browser’s address bar, they don’t expect to have to ‘work’ (well, at least, not all that much!). A top website development company will ensure they don’t have to by designing and delivering websites online that:
- Are uncluttered by having a simple layout that lets the website’s Home page (and other pages) ‘breathe’
- Includes sparse, clear and easy to understand text (jargon-free copywriting that is meaningful and relevant*). The writing will also be grammatically correct (while still being written in a friendly, conversational style) and there will be no typos
- Includes clear product images
- Has no broken links
So many websites include copywriting that basically just shows-off; users get lost in all the jargon, they get blinded by science, become confused, lose patience and click-off the site (who can blame them?).
Also, many websites include what to all intents and purposes seems to offer a really good read and promises the earth, but then after clicking-off the site, the question: “But where was the information I was looking for?” comes into the user’s mind. It has dawned on them that they have to perform another search to find the actual core information they originally sought. A top web development company will ensure this never happens. Their sites will only include jargon-free, plain English – relevant and engaging text that answers users questions and arms them with the information they seek.
And on the subject of engaging users…
People in the UK hate being sold to
…they prefer to be helped. A top website development company will create appealing websites that don’t adopt a ‘hard sell’ approach. They’ll understand that in the UK, people liked to be helped to find solutions to their problems (they can’t find an affordable family skiing holiday in Chamonix, or sourcing a specialist marquee heater hire company is proving difficult, e.g.). By providing solutions to problems in a ‘no pressure’, friendly way, a website can forge a reputation for being ‘the best place to look’, every time.
