How does web design and web content go hand-in-hand?
Do you know why most sites fail to make a good impression on web visitors or prospective customers? You could kind of guess by now it has something to do with web content.
Lets accept the fact that today’s consumers are more careful and inquisitive when it comes to buying any product online. Suppose, you have a beautiful website, however it is not helping you increasing your customer-base at all. You wonder why this happens but cant quite figure it out. Yet, when you analyze competitor sites and other sites similar to your business you notice that apart from design the content that describes their products or services is inviting. Yes, inviting. This is how well thought out web content can help you generate good sales.
It doesn’t serve a purpose to have a beautiful design if the content doesn’t meet its standards. You have to make your web design and web content work together. If you think web content isn’t important because simply stating what you sell is enough, then you’re hurting your business.
Web Design vs Web Content
To be honest, anything that a website is made of is referred to as content. It can be written text, images, videos etc. But, in strict sense of the word, it means text that describes your business, business products or services. No matter how good the design of your site is remember this… If it does not represent your products or services well then you may not get to the level of success in business you’d like. Nine times out of ten, customers who visit your site may stay for a few more seconds if they like your design but it is not enough to bring in sales. They will navigate to other sites when your web content doesn’t convince them or persuade them in the best way.
Good Content Complements Your Web Design
When you get quality content on your site in form of: written text, descriptive or more elaborative images, infographics, videos or other digital content then you are going to gain a lot more from your site. Especially, if it is an eCommerce site, then its is crucial you to focus more on your web content. Your customers are expecting more from you in order to be convinced of buying any product. They may want to have a 360° view of the product they wish to buy with quality written text, different kinds of images of the products and if possible a small video on the product. All these add-on can certainly help you a lot to win customers over.
Quality web design may help attract customer’s attention. It can give customers a reason to stay for a few more seconds on your site before they navigate to other site whereas quality web content can increase sales by converting web visitors into customers, convincing them to actually buy the products.
Remember, poor description of the services or products you sell may hurt your success in business.
So, always focus on both of the essentials of online success – web design and web content and continue to lead the market in your business field.
