The Benefits of Quality Web Design

First impressions count when it comes to website design. Contrary to the motto, people will definitely judge your book by its cover, so ensure your website is appealing, relevant and engaging. Many potential customers will flick in and out of your website within a couple of seconds if they aren't intrigued or interested. It takes something special to keep your audience inspired and a lot more to persuade them to get in touch or buy your products.

Consistency
Firstly, your website should be consistent with other online media, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. A consistent visual language and tone should be used in each context, on both online and print media such as business cards, posters and brochures. Creating a consistent tone for your business engages your audience and personalises your company, constructing a dialogue between you and your customers. Your tone and visuals should be coherent throughout your business.

Aesthetics
The aesthetic appeal of your website is imperative for engaging the eyes of potential customers. Movement such as sliders and pop-ups maintain the audience’s interest, whilst creating a direction for the audience to follow. For example, a pop-up as you enter the page for a restaurant one afternoon might guide you to the dinner menu, intriguing the customer’s taste buds, encouraging them to take their spouse for dinner that evening. However, do not overload your audience with movement and visuals. Confusing navigation and obscured call to action will deter your potential customer. Clear pathways for the audience to discover who you are, what you do and how they can contact you are vital.
Recognition

 Particularly engaging, noteworthy and original website designs can be submitted to CSS Galleries to be showcased to a huge range of audience. This brings in extra traffic, potential customers and also adds to your authority through being discussed across the web and showcased as a professional website. Feedback can also be obtained from CSS Galleries, as well as being a great way to find inspiration for your own website.
Ensure your website is clearly accessible on all browsers, particularly Firefox, Opera, Safari, Torch and Chrome. Professional web designers like us will make sure your website is clearly viewable on major web browsers, maintaining your attractive, functional and professional appearance.

Evolution
Be ready for a facelift every few years. With a professionally designed website it is easy to update and keep your website fresh for a prolonged period of time, compared to an amateur website. Search engines will also rank you more favourably, as they like sites that are constantly being updated with new content. However, every few years technology and design trends change drastically, and you NEED to stay on top of the latest developments. With a professional and quality website you will rarely need a complete revamp; aesthetic tweaks and changes to functionality will keep you website looking up-to-date and trendy.

Analytics & Insight
It is important to keep track of whether your website is attracting customers and how. By enabling services such as Google analytics (free to set-up) or other web-tracking statistics, you can see what is effective on your website, and what needs updating.

Responsive
Our multi-screen professional websites contain high-powered, built-in features which are designed to meet the needs of your business and customers. Whether they are using a laptop or mobile phone, we’ll ensure their experience is positive and they are inspired by what they see.

Over the last month you may have noticed the cleaner look to the LinkedIn interface and the new features that have appeared within this new makeover.  However, this isn’t just a small change - the upgrade has created a faster, smoother, easier-to-navigate site with a layout very similar to that of Facebook. So, what are the main changes and enhanced features you really need to know about?

Here are a couple of the best bits about the new upgrade to ensure you and your business are making the most of LinkedIn:

1/ The LinkedIn messenger features have leaned more towards the Facebook Messenger in appearance. But, the best part for us is the suggested responses feature to InMail (available on premium). This means you can very quickly get back to people with an automated response letting them know if you are interested or not. This response can be edited to make the message more personalised.

On Thursday 23rd March, the Digity team travelled to Heathrow with cars full of stand equipment, brochures, televisions, and tables ready to wow the visitors at the West London Business Show.

As marketing partners with the show, our signage, brochures and media designs surrounded the hall including huge signs showing the schedule for the day. Our banners and leaflets were unmissable. With the schedule often changing only a couple of days before the show, our designers were flexible, quick and innovative in adapting to alterations in a short time span. The brochures, signage and other advertising media were sent off to the printers and you can see below how great they looked in time for the show!
