The average attention span of a normal consumer is 8 seconds. As a business, you have to throw in everything you’ve got to make sure the person stays with you after those 8 seconds.

The best way to make sure of that is to visually engage a potential customer. There are so many brands out there that a normal person would rather interact with something – whether it’s your website or tangible products – that is visually satisfying and provides a great experience.

Since websites are your digital shops it is only practical to invest in web design and make your website more presentable to the audience. Everyone knows that first impressions are important, and your website is the first thing a potential customer interacts with, whether they get there through a social media platform or a link from their friend.

There are also other benefits of investing in web design

1. It improves your SEO(search engine optimization)

Several aspects of your webs design affect your SEO. The content that goes on your website is what all the search engines crawl through to give users results. 

If your on-page SEO is not up to date, it’ll be difficult for your website to be visible on the first few searches, and you’ll end up losing a potential customer to another search result.

Even aside from the content of your website, there are other aspects of web design that can affect your SEO. There can be a huge list of how SEO is affected by web design, but to put it simply, your code has to be user-friendly.

2. It provides an impression of your customer service

The moment a user lands on your website they’ll start judging your business. Leaving a good visual impression will also help the users expect a high standard of customer service from your business.

Moreover, if your user experience is friendly and easy to understand, the user retention of your website will increase and it will be more likely for your website to generate leads for your business.

3. It builds trust with your audience

It is normal for people to show distrust towards poorly designed websites. A poorly designed website gives a sketchy impression and may give the user the sense that you don’t have enough confidence in your own business to invest in web design.

If all this sounds hypothetical then ask yourself if you’re to place a bulk order for any product, which will cost a huge sum, would you place it on a website that sets you off even the slightest bit? Most likely not, and that’s how you’ll be losing business to your competitors which give a more trustable first impression.

4. Your competitors are investing in it

While you’re still unsure about investing in web design, your competitors are utilizing it to steal your potential customers and generate more leads for their business.

You need to stand out from the sea of websites that your potential customers may visit, and you can’t expect to do that with an old-looking website. Even search engines rank websites, and with an outdated and low-quality website, your competitors will easily outrank you.

With your competition offering similar services and competitive pricing, you need that one thing that sets you apart. A well-built website provides you the opportunity to stand out and showcase the unique features of your website. You have to give the reason to your customers why they should choose your business over others

There’s a lot of features that you can add to your website to make it stand out and give the audience a better user experience.
