Qualities of a Good Website

Part 2

Websites are crucial to your brand. To be directly honest, its better not to have a website at all than to have a bad website. If you do have a website, then it should be visually appealing, clean and clutter-free. It’s usually seen as a reflection of your business/brand, your products and your services. It practically helps to #IdentifyYourBrand.

Effective Navigation and Menu Items

It is very important for the navigation of a website to be clean and free of clutter. Keeping the number of menu items as low as possible is the best way to start. The use of drop-down menus is better on large site with many sections and pages. A good navigation is one really aspects of website usability and may determine whether people stay on your site or not!

Working Contact Forms

This is one very key part of your website because you want people to be able to reach you easily. Sometimes it is good to have a form or a link to a contact form on every major page of a website. However, if you have forms that aren’t working **pauses** then thats a no no as people may not be patient enough after experiencing a few errors and this can cause loss of potential clients. We all have very short attention spans, so no need for forms that aren’t working or difficult to find! A ìContact Usî link is in the upper right of your navigation is a must.

Security is crucial to your website

This one is crucial to ecommerce folks! Always use strong passwords for your accounts. Use of platforms like WordPress or Magento, help you with things like CAPTCHA to improve security. Please be sure to use it and keep the platforms updated always. In addition to adding new functionality, these periodic updates often address security issues found by other users and developers.
