You may be asking yourself “ Do I need a professional website design ?“ With all the do it yourself website design sites out there why should you pay a person to do a website design?
Look at it this way, you can find do it yourself plans on how to build a house on the internet but you would be a fool to try this if you have no previous experience in home construction. It is same with a website design. I used to work on my own car but I can’t do that anymore because the technology has advanced to the point that I no longer have the technological knowledge to do this. Again it is the same with website design.
Being involved in the website design industry I have find it necessary to constantly be reading and studying to keep up with all of the innovations and advances in the industry. As a lay person you don’t do this and don’t really understand what is available to you.
If you want an effective website utilizing the features available today then you need a professional website design. A cut and paste template just isn’t going to cut the mustard in today’s competitive internet.
With website design you have several goals.
1. To capture the viewer’s attention in the first 5 seconds.
If this is not accomplished then the viewer will move on to another site.
2. Once the viewer is captured to direct them to the goods or services that you are presenting and entice them to buy these goods or services.
3. To make the navigation of the site easy and quick. People have notoriously short attention spans. So get their attention and make the sale.
This almost never accomplished with a do it yourself website design. Don’t waste your time talk to website design professional.
