“We can update my website later.”
“Yes, I get that web design is something I have to do. But it’s not like, something I have to do right now.”
Here at our full-service digital marketing and professional web development company, we’ve heard some version of that many, many times.
The truth is that having a properly designed and functioning website is very important. Plus, it’s getting increasingly more important, too.
You don’t have to take my word for it, of course. You should, however, listen to Google.
Google Always Prioritized Web Design, Soon It Will Even More
Here at Website Depot, we have some of the absolute best digital marketing professionals in the world.
They understand just about everything there is to know about how to make your company to rank that much higher.
My job is writing and podcast hosting. So, I’m not as familiar with the tech aspects of things as others here at the company.
That said, I understand what certain words mean.
The other day, Google’s John Mueller, according to this article, said that “All three Core Web Vitals benchmarks must be met in order to qualify for the ranking signal boosting rolling out this May.”
So, to get your company to rank that much better, you have to hit all three of these “Core Web Vitals.” Not one or two of them, but rather, all three.
As the article goes on to say, these metrics include measuring “the speed at which a page’s main content is loaded. This should occur within 2.5 seconds of landing on a page” as well as measuring “the speed at which users are able to interact with a page after landing on it. This should occur within 100 milliseconds.”
Those are important to Google.
Moreover, they’re important to your customers, too.
By making sure that your website can do that, you give yourself the best chance to succeed. That’s the kind of thing our experts can help with.
Functional and Beautiful
A website, of course, is more than just “measuring the speed at which a page’s main content is loaded.”
After all, if that main content doesn’t look good, is unattractive or unappealing, it doesn’t matter how fast it’s loaded. People aren’t going to want to look at it or work with it anyway.
This is one more reason it’s so important to have web design pros working on your site, too: it has to function great and look great.
You shouldn’t have to choose from one or the other.
If you only choose one, then you’re liable to lose potential customers anyway.
Of course, even the best, most dedicated and conscientious small business owner can’t spend all of their time fixing their website.
Our pros can make sure it looks and works how you want it to, all while you’re managing the other aspects of the business.
