What is website design?

Website design covers every aspect of your website, including the content, the way the site looks overall, and the way it functions. The web design process is used to determine a concept and plan for the website's layout, colour scheme, font, structure, graphics, images, and interactive features before the website is built.

What is website development?

Website development, also known as programming, is the process of turning a website design into a fully functioning website through the use of programming languages like HTML, CSS, and PHP or through the use of a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress. The web development process can transform a static layout into a dynamic website by incorporating image and content sliders, active states for links and buttons, and a range of other interactive elements.

Improve User Experience

Website design and development can help improve a user's experience (UX) by pinpointing problems that customers may have navigating the website intuitively and providing solutions before those problems occur. In today's market, a website's UX needs to be flawless or it can result in lost revenue, as users get frustrated with not being able to navigate the website and end up leaving the site before purchasing anything.

In order to create the best possible user experience for your website, it is important to create a perfect balance between the business' needs and the users' needs, as well as a balance between visual design aesthetics and user functionality. The less effort and time a user needs to interact with a website, the better the UX.

Increase Online Engagement

Increasing online engagement with customers through a website's design is about more than using creative visual elements to instantly draw the eye; it is about creating visitor interaction and boosting engagement by building trust as a reputable company.

Some of the ways you can increase online engagement through website design include:

  • Using strong keyword-rich content
  • Utilizing rich media
  • Strategically placing riveting calls-to-action
  • Writing monthly blog articles
  • Social media integration

Increase Conversion Rates

The best way to increase conversion rates is by strategically placing riveting calls-to-action throughout the website design to compel users to take actions, such as subscribe, request a quote, share, or buy a product. A well thought out website design will utilize calls-to-action to boost conversion rates in a way that appears natural, exciting, and in keeping with the business' brand.
