It is crucial that any business with an online presence take the time to design a website that presents its image, personality and purpose effectively. From a customer’s perspective, a business website not only gives information about what a company does but the website’s design and imagery also conveys many more subliminal messages such as how friendly, professional and trustworthy the business may be. This is one of the reasons why every business website should be thought about carefully so that the right messages are conveyed and potential customers are encouraged to take action (i.e. filling in a form, picking up the phone, making a purchase etc). If a website is too cluttered and hard to navigate, a potential customer may simply turn away and go somewhere else.
