Why is great website design important?
Your website is the most important marketing tool you have for your organization or business. Every other piece of marketing—online or offline—leads people to your website. Your website really is your front door.
Think about it like this:
When you want to learn about a company, product, or service, where do you go first? If you’re like most people, you start with your favorite search engine. The first couple of things you find (or don’t find) immediately shape your lasting impression about that company, product, or service.
- Do they appear trustworthy and stable?
- Do they pay attention to important details?
- Do they help visitors find the information they’re looking for?
- Is the site’s overall appearance and function an indication of what the company is really like?
Now think about your own website. How do your customers and clients see you?
Did you know?
According to research by Stanford University, over 75% of all web users admit to making judgements about a company’s credibility based on their website’s design.
ThirdSide is your best choice for professional web design.
The people behind ThirdSide have been building websites since 1998. In that time, we’ve developed a refined process that helps web design projects move forward smoothly, easily, and on budget. Whether you’re building a new site or updating an old one, you’ll find that the experience we bring to the table is second to none.
We’ve been fortunate to work with some large well-known companies, but our specialty is small- to medium-sized businesses and organizations like yours.
Design vs Development
Our company was founded on the principle that having a well-built website doesn’t matter if your visitors aren’t treated to the best overall experience possible. We begin every project with a great design so you look your best.
So is development important? Of course! Every design we create is built onto the strongest platforms to ensure you remain focused on your business, not worrying about web technologies.
With us, web development and web design are all part of the same story.
Mobile Web Design
How much of the Internet is accessed by mobile phones and tablets? Some estimates put it as high as 60%. Unfortunately, a large majority of websites aren’t optimized for mobile visitors. This means lost business for those sites. Mobile users are more highly engaged with businesses whose sites are created with their needs in mind.
Take a look at your site on your mobile phone. Is it easy to navigate? Does it provide a positive user experience? Most importantly, is it a site you would visit if it wasn’t your own?
Do you have a product you want to sell online? Do you want to offer online reservations or appointments to your customers, clients, and guests?
From solid database management to accurate online inventory management, we can design an attractive online presence that reflects the best of your business.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is what allows a website to be indexed and found by search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Traditional marketing is still the best way to tell people about your business, but if they can’t find you when they need you then that marketing is wasted.
We include basic SEO with every new site so your customers can find you when they need you. If you are interested in a more custom SEO approach, learn more by clicking here.
