Common Website Design Mistakes

To help you achieve the best website possible, here are a few standard website design mistakes you should avoid.

With over a billion websites out there, many are bound to get it right. But there are also many that completely miss the mark and thus miss all the views. 

Many elements go into successful website design, and you want to make sure yours has them and incorporates them well. Keep reading for our best advice. 

Mistake #1: Important Information Is Hard to Find

When you get someone to your site for the first time, they may have a few questions. They may be looking for a specific product or there to browse. Either way, they need to be able to navigate your website quickly and find what they’re looking for. Having an easy-to-find search bar is one of the best things you can have on your website.

As a business owner, you likely have information on shipping costs, a return policy, and other FAQs. You want to make these things easily accessible from your home page. Access to get to this information should be straightforward and easy to find.

Mistake #2: Your Website isn’t Organized

Besides making your frequently searched information easy to find and allowing users to search for everything else easily, you want to make sure the overall look of your website is clean and organized. Help the content on your website by having headings, subheadings, bullets, keywords, etc. Overall, it shouldn’t be too cluttered or “messy” looking. You want to look at your website to be enjoyable!

Mistake #3: Information Is Hard to Read

Once your visitors find the information they’re looking for, they will want to read it. If you use a strange font or the words blend into the background, you’re going to lose interest fast! Make sure your website is easy to read by adjusting your color schemes if necessary and making sure the font size and style are appropriate.

Mistake #4: Uncaptivating Content

While a good website design may help peak interest and keep viewers around for a short time, the content will drive traffic and keep it there. You want to make sure you have intriguing content. It should be relevant and current — don’t forget to add new content to your website frequently.

Mistake #5: Making Info Collection Complicated

When you get visitors to your site, one of your goals should be to encourage them to subscribe to send them emails about new products, deals, and sales. You may have a subscribe option pop up, but if it is too complicated, you’re going to miss out on getting valuable information. Try asking for a name and email. If they make a purchase, possibly ask for a username and password so their information is saved.
