The 6 Elements: Massive Traffic = Massive Profit
1. High Ranking: Can the customers easily find you on Google or Yahoo? This is primary for generating new customers. You can have the best website design on the planet, but you need people to easily find it.
2. Quick Loading: Online shoppers are not patient. If your site takes more than 5 seconds to load they will be gone. There are several techniques used to ensure quick load times.
3. Call to action: Once a visitor comes to your site, there is a point when his/her interest peaks and this is the time the call to action. Now, a lot of online business owners have website that fail in this aspect and hence they lose out on nearly 20% of prospective leads. You need to know where to place the call to action so you don’t lose any potential customers.
4. Logos & Brands: You want visitors to remember you. Logos and branding material can make a huge impact. But the way to present them to the visitor is an art, you cannot have anything placed anywhere. Professional web design companies know user preferences and can help you determine the positioning of each element on your website.
5. Colors & Symmetry: The kind of colors you use and the kind of shapes you have on your website create the first impression of your website to a viewer. You can get tons of visits to your site but dull colors and bad symmetry can nullify all efforts.
6. Content & Images: Most users have specific ideas about how content and images should be placed on a website. If your website is not meeting to their standards, they will go away.
Finally, a good web design is about getting all of the above elements together in a way that it looks attractive and also serves the business purpose. In your case the purpose is to drive massive traffic to your site and make more money.
