We all know that quality lasts longer and looks good right from the start. Like shoes, that aren’t even worth new soles or heels, but go in the bin when they wear out quickly, a cheap website design that looks poor is showing you up and making you look worthless - which won’t do your business any favours. Eventually you need to up your game, to get the respect your business deserves.
If you run a business and you do networking or, if you have people that know about your business, then people will be talking about it. Very often, people recommend their friends on Facebook to visit your site. So you can bet that people ARE looking at your website design and making assumptions - about YOU!
A good website looks great and costs you money - but brings in business. A bad website costs too - and wastes time you’ll never get back without actually getting you new customers. And as we all know, time is money. So in a way, the cost of good website design is actually offset by the business it brings in. But a bad website design is just as visible as a good one. What is a bad website costing you? Typically, if somebody asks for a recommendation or looks on search engines they get 8-10 different company recommendations and guess who gets the work? The one with the best-looking website.
If your website design is professional it will pay for itself. However, you could be losing out on thousands of pounds in business if your website has been done by an amateur. If it lacks polish, contemporary styling, or is unfinished, with broken links, or bad content and low quality graphics, visitors will click on to one that does have more style.
