The most common mistakes in website development
Every business that wants to be competitive, needs to have an appropriate and modern website. However, developing a website can be tricky because it is easy to make mistakes, no matter how well you know the business and its needs. These are some of the most common mistakes:
1. Confusing navigation and lack of CTA Buttons.
Since you do not want to confuse your customers, easy navigation of your website is extremely important. CTA Buttons encourages the users of a website to take a specific action. However, this action should be expressed with a simple and clear phrase. Use motivational phrases that will bring you the results you desire (Start here, Apply now, Visit us today, etc.)
2. Lack of visual hierarchy.
When a user visits your website for the first time, they need to clearly understand what each button does. Navigation should be easy and never create the feeling of being lost. Clear visual hierarchy of your website contributes significantly to this.
3. Slow loading speed.
A website that takes more than three seconds to load, results in a large percentage of visitors abandoning it. To optimize the speed of your website, it is imperative to ensure that all pages have fast load times, so that visitors can access content quickly and easily.
4. Non-responsive website design.
Responsive design is considered necessary for a higher ranking by Google. Essentially, it is a website that is tailored to work equally well on both desktop and mobile devices. In particular, we recommend mobile-first design, which means that we start from the small screen version and then build the version for the larger screen.
5. Lack of personality.
The technical aspects of web designing is only a part of its development but content is just as important. Your visitor needs to understand who you are and why they should choose you. This will result in the audience connecting with you and leading them to become your customers faster.
6.Creativity limited to the home page.
The home page is very important on a website, but all other pages are also important and can contribute to the long-term success of your business.
7. No Favicon has been created.
The favicon is a small icon that appears along with the name of the website in the browser tab of the user. It is very important, as it is essentially a part of the brand. Many users open tabs in their browsers and then forget them. Αs a result, they find it difficult to identify the page among many simultaneously opened and they are very likely to close it without even visiting it.
