The markets are flooded with experts who can design your website. Some experts can give you a really good design at reasonable cost while on the other hand they can just charge you for a design that will not help your website to attract visitors.
The problem is, you cannot tell how good is an expert just by looking at his face, in fact you will never know how much good is a designer until he designs your website and he won’t do it until you pay for it, and of what good is to know that the designer was not of the caliber you looked for after you have paid him.
But there are a few key characteristics that a good web design should posses.
The website must be designed for all users; this means a user with Firefox must be open your website as well as a user with internet explorer or opera or Google chrome. The design must be compatible with almost all browsers and almost all versions of all browsers, because most of the users do not bother to upgrade their browser to the latest version.
The fast age people want fast page and fast downloading. Lower the downloading speed of page, lower will be the organic traffic on your website. Thus if you want more and more visitors to come again and again on your website, which you surely do, then try to keep the load on the page as reduced as possible. The graphics used must be chosen carefully so that they don’t reduce the page speed. Many of your visitors may be using devices which do not allow graphics, using a ALT HTML tag will at least let them have an idea about the pictures that weren’t displayed on their device.

The websites appearance must be in your control to enable you to change its style time to time. This can be done by separating the content and the presentation. The modern technologies like CSS can do it for you. There are other technologies that might be able to do the same, but most popular among them is the CSS (cascading style sheets).
While using multimedia on the website, it is more convenient to use streaming media rather than to let the user to wait for the media to download. A good design always has space for visitors with all browsers and with different internet speeds by providing them the substitute of the media if their browser doesn’t support it or if they have low speed connections. This can be done by giving in text what was given in the multimedia.
We all know that nothing is perfect in reality. Everything always needs modifications and so does your website, thus encourage your visitors to give feedback in forms of polls or surveys or the “like” and “dislike” buttons can help you know what your visitors think of your website and its design.
Thus a key to the successful business is a quality website and the services of a web development agency or specialized web developers. But your choice of an agency or a web developer can affect your business in both negative and positive ways. Now it’s up to you that what kind of a service provider you choose for your website.
