Some people save money at the supermarket buying no brand items, some save money buying items on ebay.com or quibids.com, others buy bulk at wholesale outlets. In many cases, these ideas work well to save you money. The key with all these money saving tips is to understand the product and it’s value. The problem is, when it comes to web design, new business owners often try to save money without a clear understanding of what they are actually purchasing and what the true value is. I’ve seen many business owners buy web design packages that appeared cheap but proved to be costly.
To save money in the web design process the key is to do your research and understand the true value of what you are purchasing. The easiest way to avoid making the common web design mistakes is by hiring a professional website design firm to handle your needs.
Here are the top five common mistakes in website design that I consider to be criminal.
- Unclear goals
- Poor design
- Poor Search Engine Optimisation
- Irregular updates to the website
- Lack of interactive features
If your website has unclear objectives or goals before leaving the drawing board, then it is wise to stop and reconsider what you are doing. Your goals need to be clearly defined so the design layout can encourage your intended outcome. Each of the pages should have proper search engine optimisation in order for them to generate lots of targeted traffic. Irregular updates to your website will also cause a drop in search engine indexing and it means your visitors have no reason to come back for more.

Most of all, consider your goals and objectives so you are clear about the outcome you want to achieve.
