Why website design matters
A website is a brand touchpoint, a business tool, and a place to drive critical conversions. A great website can be an engine of business growth. A poor site can inflict damage on your brand.
But outstanding web design isn’t easy. Today’s audiences have high expectations. You have seconds – maybe milliseconds – to convince visitors that your site is worth their time.
With over 17 years of experience, Blue Fountain Media creates websites to exceed audience expectations. We build sites to perform with a focus on strategic planning, compelling visual design, and flawless user experience, in order to drive superior results.
How to build a better-converting website
Every website is built to achieve different goals – from sales, to leads, to engagement. But to create a website that actually meets those goals, it’s critical to design the right way.
Design for your users.
Put the needs of the site’s users first. If you don’t know what users’ needs are, ask them. As a user-centered agency, this principle is the foundation of everything we create.
Design with a purpose.
A great website has beauty and brains. Naturally, it should look good. But it also needs to be built with a clear view of its most important goals and conversion points, and how the website will support users on their journey toward those goals.
Design for discoverability.
A site must be designed in such a way that people can find it – and that starts with visibility to search engines. A good site should be technically optimized, and built so that there are relevant, engaging landing pages for users to land on.
