5 Web Design Mistakes That Will Lead Your Business To A Disaster

  1. 1. 5 Web Design Mistakes That Will Lead Your Business To a Disaster
  2. 2. 1. It’s Not a Literary Contest While written content is undoubtedly a powerful tool, the very words are less so. The rapid decrease in our attention span makes it obvious that it’s pointless to write like Shakespeare. You may think that your words are creative, funny and engaging, and they as well might be, but forcing them too much you’ll only build a wall of text that will blind your audience.
  3. 3. 2. It’s Not a Sticker Album There is a constant need for attractive photos, so the most common design mistake lies in the use of boring stock ones. You don’t need an artistic eye to see how fake they are. It is true that you need photos of happy customers smiling in order to attract the attention of your visitors – that creates a mood and sets a tone. But if you turn your website into a sticker album of fake stock smiles the only mood you’ll create is one of disbelief.
  4. 4. 3. It’s Not a Coloring Book You might be tempted to use lots of strong and flashy colors, but before you make your web pages look as if a paint factory just exploded, just picture your potential customers rolling around and foaming at their mouth because your crazy color scheme has inducted their epileptic seizures. If you think this is a bit extreme example, we’ll point out to a different group you probably haven’t considered, either – the color blind.
  5. 5. 4. It’s Not an Escape Room In the midst of playing with words, photos, and colors, many designers forget about the importance of quality navigation. If you don’t have proper navigation in place your site will quickly turn into the Bermuda Triangle so it’s recommendable to have your navigational elements outlined before you start designing.
  6. 6. Even the most precise navigation could lead your users through blind alleys if your call to action (CTA) buttons are not clear and in place. Everything we mentioned so far is the part of the process of leading your visitors to buy, subscribe or contact you, and falling at your CTA’s is the best way to shatter that effort. It’s basically a condensation of all your conversion power in a single button, but that doesn’t mean you should overdo it with multiple competing ones on every page. 5. The Dead End
  7. 7. Conclusion To sum up – don’t make them read, don’t borrow imagery, don’t go crazy with your colors, and don’t turn your pages into a maze where every corridor leads to a dead end. It seems pretty obvious, but business fewer often clouds our judgment, so tread carefully.
