Prominence of Web Designing

What is Web Design?
Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardized code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating markup then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

Why web design?
There are over 1 billion websites in the world currently as per the live stats. 16million websites are added every month. There was a 40% increase in the websites from 2013 to 2014 as per the latest analysis. The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos, and interactive content.

In the current world website is one of the most important medium that can be used to reach new customers and generate more sales. Businesses are rapidly going online to reach out to larger global audiences and equipping their customers with apps that help them connect instantly with just a click of a button.

Importance of designing a good Website for any business 

Great web design instills trust in your business. According to web credibility research from Stanford, 75% of users admit to making judgments about a company’s credibility based on their website’s design.

In a day and age where 85% of B2B customers search the web before making a purchase decision, your website has the best chance of being a prospect’s “first impression” of your company and offerings. And it turns out, the look and feel of your website are the primary drivers of those first impressions.

  •  First impressions are 94% design-related. The quality of the content on the website matters a lot. But even the best content is rendered powerless when it’s embedded in poor design. Studies of user behavior have found that visual appeal and website navigation have the biggest influence on people’s first impressions of your brand.
  • Positive first impressions lead to higher satisfaction. The initial impression that a user gets from your site can have a priming effect on how they perceive future interactions with your business. Research shows that positive priming can boost user satisfaction and, as you might expect, negative first impressions put significant drag on user satisfaction.

Visual appeal matters a lot for any website. And nowhere is that more true than on the web. Today’s Internet user has infinite options about where to commit their attention. And, as the research shows, they form their opinion about your website in milliseconds.
