We’ve always wondered how people manage to create successful websites on their own. One after another, we constantly see new blogs and websites sprouting out of nowhere. After several hours of research, we’ve determined that these websites aren’t as successful as you might think. Actually, it didn’t take several hours, but rather a few minutes. Designing a successful website takes experience, coding knowledge, and a huge understanding of social media as we know it today and as it evolves on a daily basis. Often, those who go it alone will be very gung-ho at first, but we find them falling off the radar quickly, and eventually, falling out of the attention of the ever-important visitor.
Designing a successful website isn’t just about content. You can write till your hand falls off, and you still may not have a successful site to show for it. Yes, we would agree that content is king when it comes to ranking organically, but that’s not the only factor that makes a website successful. There are so many other pieces to the possible, that we honestly don’t believe one person can design a successful website without the help of an experienced team or background to give them the push that they need across every aspect that makes a website successful.
When it comes to designing a successful website, one of the most crucial factors that is missed is user experience. You can be absolutely sure your website looks great. It can be on the fastest server available. It can even have a great Google Page Rank and drive thousands of visitors organically. If your site has a poor user experience, it all means nothing. Designing a successful website is about guiding, almost controlling, the user as they navigate through your site. Every user is out to get something out of your website, whether it’s a purchase or just some information. The main idea is that a user finds his or her experience easy and enjoyable, which will lead to return visits and hopefully, business.
This is just scratching the surface of designing a successful website. There are hundreds of elements that must be looked at with a microscope in order to predict if a website will have the usability and originality to pull in new and repeat visitors on a regular occurrence.
