Your website is the digital reflection of your business, just like your wardrobe is an expression of your personality. Just as a carefully curated wardrobe showcases your unique style, your website should reflect your business personality and captivate your audience.
In this blog post, we’ll explore three common website mistakes and show you how to correct them, all while highlighting the power of Showit—a versatile web design and hosting platform that empowers you to create a fully customized website without any coding knowledge. Let’s dive in and uncover some common digital faux pas and how to correct them.
Mistake #1: Website Has No Style
The Fix: Dress Your Website to Impress
Just like an outfit lacking personal flair fails to make a statement, a website devoid of style and personality fails to engage visitors. To correct this mistake, infuse your website with your brand’s identity, values, and unique voice. Showit provides creative control and enables you to design a custom desktop and mobile website that perfectly embodies your business personality. Whether it’s vibrant colors, captivating imagery, or playful animations, let your website be an extension of your brand’s essence and leave a lasting impression on your audience.
Here’s an example of how we transformed an outdated website that lacked compelling brand visuals into a beautiful and engaging site using Showit.
Before overhauling the website, we began by redefining the brand identity and developing a strategic, SEO-focused content plan to effectively resonate with the target audience. We carefully selected cohesive images that focused on close-ups of women and incorporated floral elements. Additionally, we elevated the client’s messaging to craft a narrative that tells a story and guides potential clients through the journey of seeking personalized healthcare. The new content was organized throughout the design to make it easily digestible and interactive — providing an immersive user experience that felt connected to the brand visually.
WEBSITE — OLD STYLE
WEBSITE — NEW LOOK
Mistake #2: Poor Navigation
the Fix: Guide Your Visitors with Style
Imagine trying to find an outfit in a messy closet—it can be so frustrating. Well, a website with confusing navigation is just as off-putting. Fix this by simplifying your site’s layout for a smoother user experience.
Creating a successful website navigation is the cornerstone of a user-friendly online experience. A well-structured navigation system is like a roadmap, guiding visitors to their desired destinations effortlessly. To achieve this, begin by organizing your content logically and labeling menu items in a clear, intuitive manner. Prioritize the most critical pages or sections for prominent placement, and keep the overall menu concise to avoid overwhelming users. Consistency in design and placement across all pages is key, ensuring that visitors can easily find their way around, regardless of their location on the site. Additionally, consider implementing breadcrumb navigation, search bars, and calls-to-action to further enhance the user’s ability to explore and discover.
