Why is web design important to a company?

Are your products or services of quality? If so, translate this on your web design, website, blog and also on your social media. After all, an image that wasn’t well-crafted is not attractive to anyone, do you agree? Just think about your own experience and how many ads or photos you clicked because they caught your attention for their quality.

Thus, having a good web design helps to attract more potential customers, which can have a direct impact on the company’s revenue. In addition, it also helps when your brand is recognized by your audience. Want an example? Remember the famous advertisements for Itaú, Banco do Brasil and Coca-Cola.

Just by the colors and design of the letters, even if the brand name is not displayed, you quickly recognize who they are. Have this goal for your business: be inspired by recognized brands. 

Impact of web design on customer experience

So far, we’ve talked about the positive impacts of web design on the company. But and for the customer, what difference does a brand have with a good design? A good web design positively impacts your customer’s experience. However, it is worth remembering that, for this, a good design must also have other characteristics besides beauty.

Consider a website where you can find information easily, being able to solve your problem or complete an action in an equally easy way.  In this situation, your customer’s chances of making a conversion, that is, buying a service or subscribing to a newsletter, for example, are much higher.

So, every time you think about a website or even when to produce art for your social networks, remember a key part called the customer. Seek to listen to him, conduct research and monitor his behavior, through the performance of his interactions in the channels whose brand is present.

This will allow you to extract relevant information, such as what might have caused one customer to click on an ad more than another.
