It goes without saying that your business needs a strong web presence to be successful in the Age of Information, and that your website is integral to your web presence. However, do you realize the importance of good Reno web design, when it comes to your business brand? That’s right – it’s not just enough to have an aesthetically pleasing site with good content. Good design is more complex than that, and it can mean the difference between having an effective or ineffective website. Want to know why design is so important? Here is how a good website design creates a great impression:
Professionalism. When you take shortcuts, it shows. Don’t make the mistake of taking shortcuts with your web design. Sure, your teenage cousin knows a thing or two about creating websites, but unless he can create a top-notch, professional-looking site for your business, your site is just going to look amateurish . . . and your site visitors will get the impression that you are an amateur. Spring for a good website design. Navigation. Good design is centered on creating an effortless experience for your site visitors. You don’t want people to have to work or make guesses to find their way around your site. By providing them with straightforward, simple, and well-organized site navigation, you are not only giving your visitors the impression that you care about catering to them, but you are also ensuring they can find (and read!) all of the valuable content you have on your site. Branding. Your website design should be in line with your business branding in every way – from the colors to the fonts. That means that good web design, with your brand in mind, will elevate your brand and increase brand awareness, thereby creating a lasting impression for your visitors. Attention grabbing. You have a very limited window of time in which to grab new site visitors’ attention and pique their interest enough to want to stay and explore for a while. As a matter of fact, studies show that a first impression in the web world may take as little a fraction of a second to form. Good web design will snag your site visitors and enable you more time to get your message through to them. In a world where first impressions are so vital, you can’t afford not to invest in good design.

These days, it’s not enough just to have a website design, easy to navigate website. There’s a lot of competition out there, and if you want to stay relevant with today’s finicky tech-based consumer market, you must find a way to stand out on the crowd. Fortunately, if you are committed to broadening your web horizons and packing a real punch with your business website, there are some straight-forward things you can do to give yourself a hip edge. Here are three tips to give your website the “cool” factor:
A – Z index. Navigation is arguably one of the most important factors influencing your site’s success, and for that reason, you
Cool Website Design
should always be on the lookout for cool new navigation features you can add to your site. One such feature that is really catching on when it comes to site navigation is the A – Z index, which is exactly what it sounds like: a way for your visitors to easily find things on your site simply by clicking the corresponding letter of the alphabet (or number).
Image galleries. Gone are the days when simple graphics could attract major attention and cause some audience “oohs and ahs.” Now there are a number of sleek ways you can incorporate a variety of images into a single web page in order to get the most bang for your buck. Consider a sliding image gallery that allows users to view new images by simply clicking a left or right (or up or down) arrow, or a neat tiled image gallery with a hover-box preview feature that allows users to simply hover over any single image to enlarge it. A variety of image galleries can be inserted into your site via a CSS stylesheet, or by way of plug-ins (if you use a site-building platform like WordPress).
Alert box. As previously mentioned, navigation is tantamount to the success of any website. One way you can help your visitors navigate through the information on your pages is to organize your content so that the order of importance is very clear. An alert box is a cool, eye-pleasing way to draw a visitor’s attention to content that is most pertinent.

When we talk about optimizing a website, there are two different
schools of thought. There are people who give more currency to
on-page factors and then there are those who talk more about
off-page factors. People who talk about on-page factors speak
more about things like keyword optimization, using the right title
tags, using less HTML, using the right fonts and images, etc.
Those who believe more in off-page factors won’t give much
regard to all these points, but they will think more about generating
more traffic through backlinking and other similar methods.
Now, the big question is–which of these schools of thoughts
Let us put it this way–if all your on-page factors are in order
and if you just get one backlink for your website, then you have
everything that might take you to #1 on Google. Yes, you read
that right. This is absolutely true. And in contrast–what will the
off-page believing website have to do? To put it very simply, a
website that doesn’t use much of on-page factors but trusts
implicitly on off-page optimization will need to really put its act together.
In sheer numbers, such a website will have to get 10 times more
backlinks than the website that has good on-page factors.
Sounds like an enormous bit of work, right? Well, it is! The best
way then is to focus on all those on-page things which the big boys
of the Internet marketing world are already using and telling everyone about.
As this series continues, you will be shown how you can do
these various on-page factors so that you virtually carry your
website to Google’s top position.
If your website isn’t mobile friendly, you are losing business!
There are almost 5 times more mobile phones than laptops and computers.
