You've got a website. The entire world can see it. Whether you're located in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge or Guelph or you're a site owner from any location on our planet, your web design is on display for all the world to see. We'd like to suggest some signs that your website needs work so that you can present the best image possible to the world.
It uses flash
The online world is going mobile. However, flash isn't supported on iOS devices like iPhones iPads or iPod Touches. If your site doesn't speak effectively to the iOS world, a significant segment of the Internet, you're using bad web design that's outdated.
It displays stock photos of people
Stock photos of people look inauthentic. People immediately spot them and unconsciously judge them as phony. They reflect poorly on your content. Don't use stock photos of people and risk receiving the suspicion they could cast on your site.
It's showing too many ads
The goal of ad design is to integrate with your web site. If ads are cluttering your webpage, eliminate them. This is especially true if they are ineffective ads or low-converting ads. Let your web design flow unobstructed!
Long paragraphs present a wall of text
Website visitors in 2017 are scanners. Use bullet points, lists, bolding and images to help them find the information they seek quickly and easily. Long, unbroken "walls" of text are a visual turnoff in today's web design.
