Your website is the virtual storefront of your brand. It’s a digital presence for all your content and a platform that you use to sell your products or services to the world.
With recent leaps in technology and 2019’s web development trends, websites and e-commerce have gone through several new modifications in its aesthetics and functional capabilities. For example, AI chatbots are now commonly used on online stores and sign-up pages are largely designed on a minimalist approach.
Since these changes influence the target audience of your brand, your website must remain fully equipped and optimized according to their expectations. Therefore, having a skilled, competent, well-composed and motivated web designer do your bidding is imperative to the ultimate success of your website.
In this article, we take the opportunity of sharing 5 key points every online business must check before hiring a web designer in 2019.
To consistently capture leads and sales for your business, you need high-converting landing pages. Every campaign you run online should have a dedicated landing page.
For instance, HubSpot found in a study that companies had a 55% increase in leads acquisition after increasing the number of their landing pages from 10 to 15.
One of the main goals of every web designer is to increase conversions for their client’s website.
Achieving this is no easy task when you consider that everyone else is trying to do this as well. There are a lot of principles in design that help you increase conversions, but that isn’t where the story stops.
There’s no reason you can’t use science when trying to attract users. Psychology has studied the way people think for centuries now and its knowledge could come in handy when designing websites.
If you understand how people think, you will be able to design a more intuitive and more attractive website every time. Here are some ways you can use psychology to your advantage.
It takes a lot of hard work to build a beautiful, functional, and user-friendly website.
At Bloominari, our San Diego Website Design Agency, we ensure that our client’s websites are designed to appeal to their customers. After all, search engines bots don’t have credit cards to pay for your services, but online users do.
Furthermore, website developers and designers need to work together to ensure your website is visible to search engines.
More importantly, your website MUST be able to inspire visitors to become customers or religious readers.
This requires many processes. Here’s a checklist of 18 important tasks to consider to design an effective business website:
A lot of things make a website look good. One site can draw you in with stunning images. Another makes your jaw drop with how it plays with fonts. Then there’s the way it uses color, which pretty much brings a website to life.
Color, indeed, plays a crucial role in making a website look pretty. However, there’s more to color as used in websites than meets the eye.
Many of us may not realize it, but the colors as used on any one website are also meant to elicit certain reactions, emotions, and attitudes from the people who visit them. At least that’s what color psychology is telling us.
Today’s buyers are impatient — they don’t have time, patience or desire to sit around and wait for your website to load on their smartphone or desktop. When browsing online, pages should load almost instantaneously. The longer you make consumers wait, the more likely it is that they’ll lose interest. If you lose their interest right off the bat with a slow-loading website, it’ll be difficult to win them back no matter how great your products, services, or promotions are.
So how can you ensure that you keep them interested, right from the beginning? The first step is to ensure that your page load speed is up to par, and can compete with other websites. There are certain steps that you can take to ensure that your website doesn’t lag. Page load time is an important aspect when it comes to reducing lost web visitors (reduce bounce rate).
Generating organic search traffic is hard. If anyone tells you it’s simple, they have lied to you!
Consider this scenario: If your website is fairly new, all your content pages will take 5 to 12 months because they can rank highly on Google. It’s a fact!
Why? It’s because Google has to test your new content against the competitors’, in order to determine which one is most valuable and answers the user’s search intent (not query).
More so, Google wants to know if your content fills the gap that your competitors have ignored or missed out on — before they can rank your page in their top organic results.
Not every website is built to generate leads. A high-converting website is laid out with a good understanding of the end user. It goes beyond throwing a “click here” button on your homepage, sitting back, and watching the leads roll in.
In reality, the bar has been raised. As a digital marketer or company, you need to adopt a more strategic approach to website design.
In this informative guide, I’ll walk you through some of the important elements and ways you can optimize your website for lead generation. No, it’s not that difficult!
The first important element to keep in check is you must...

Have you ever completed a BuzzFeed-like online quiz in order to find out how you “rank” or “score” compared to others who also participate in the quiz? Chance are you’ve taken at least one of these types of quizzes. It’s our human nature to want to participate in these types of quizzes to see how we stack against others, or simply out of the curiosity to find out the “secret” or “answer” that the quiz promises to solve.
Most people wouldn’t spend too much time deciding whether or not to take a quiz online, as they’re usually short, fun, and easy to complete - plus they come with the reward of knowing your result upon completing it. Yet, if that same quiz was called an “online form”, or “survey”, then most people might think twice before deciding to commit their time and attention to completing such form or survey. Even if the actual quiz or survey had the same questions, the fact that one is labeled as a quiz automatically breaks the barrier people have to complete it. Why? Because in most instances the quiz becomes a game, and a challenge, rather than a “task” you have to complete.
