With the millions of websites available to your customers, it’s extremely difficult to create a website that will not only stand out, but offer a valuable service as well. But what makes a well-designed web site? What is the most important factor that differentiates successful from unsuccessful websites?
The criteria for effective website development varies from person to person, however, the purpose of each website should be at the forefront of your design. Whether you are starting an e-commerce website or showcasing videos or images, the main focus of your site should always drive the overall design.
Although design will change based on the nature of your site, there are several elements of good web design that are generally considered universal.
Easy to Navigate
Always keep in mind that your website should ultimately be designed to be “user friendly.” Keep your navigation links clear and meaningful to anyone that should come across your site. Your navigation should be prevalent across your website and appear on every page of your site. This will enable your visitor to navigate your website quickly and easily without having to return to the homepage every time.
Usability is key in web design and navigation is a large part of it. After all, it would be a shame to spend a great deal of time, money and effort to design a website that no one can use.
