Organize and develop your webpages in such a way that when a user visits the website they can easily navigate through the pages without confusion.

To much navigation can make your website complex and difficult for a user to use. Search bars are usually the most efficient way for a user to find the content they are searching for.
Mobile Responsive Design:
With the increase in mobile and tablet devices, mobile responsiveness is no longer optional. Mobile development and design is now a necessity.

Design the website in such a way, that it takes the minimum time to load. This can often be achieved through efficient code. A website that takes too long to load a page or image is considered the number one reason a user leaves a website. To have a successful and engaging website, focus on a friendly interface for the user. This should be your primary priority in both the development and design phase.
