We all want to succeed and grow our business, and building a website is the first step towards that success. But, there are a lot of myths revolving around website designing that make it harder to focus on the right strategies for website business models.
In this article, we will focus on these myths and debunk them, so that you get the clarity of what you need to do and what to avoid. And if you believe any of these myths, then it’s time to stop doing that.
Setting and running a website is already challenging, and you have to avoid falling for this trap. Having said that, here are some of the website development myths debunked.
Myth #1: You can build a website yourself and save money
It’s good that you want to put effort into developing your website, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need any help. Also, many people think they can save money by making websites themselves, but that’s wrong. You should leave this work to a good developer, it will help you in the long run.
It is obvious, to build a website, you must have a strong knowledge of industry practice, and if you are a fresher, then you must avoid it. Also, as a manager or entrepreneur, it’s not possible for you to focus on technical work while building market share. A good designer or developer will take the time to work on the base of your website.
Myth #2: it’s not important to make your site mobile optimized
It’s really disappointing to see that many people still believe this one. Smartphones have taken over every other digital device and made it easier for people to browse websites. Hence, it’s important for your website to be optimized for mobile as most of the people prefer using mobile to browse through websites.
So, optimizing your website for mobile will help you grow the number of visitors. Also, it will help in decreasing the bounce rate of your website if your website is responsive, even for mobile users.
Myth #3: More features will help in getting better conversion
See, there’s nothing wrong about adding features to your website, but adding too many of them will do you no good. There are certain features that can help you in getting better results (more customers), but using too many features will confuse the visitors.
Due to this, they won’t be able to analyze what you have to offer, and ultimately they will move on to another website. So, keep it as simple as you can, and give a clear overview of your products and services.
Myth #4: A great website is enough to generate traffic
Many people believe that if they build an attractive website, it will help in generating enough traffic, but that’s not the case really. While it is important to pay attention to the design of your website, you can not completely depend upon this factor.
You need a catchy domain name, site accessibility, right keywords, web hosting, content, and SEO.
So, these are some of the myths that we just debunked, so avoid falling for them and learn the facts. Keep yourself updated and keep evolving, and make sure the users get the best experience.
