How many times have you arrived at a site, felt disoriented, and left within a few seconds because you didn't want to waste time?
Or, perhaps had a quick skim and could not figure out the point of it or what it represented?
Maybe it was the organization of the information, or the choice of colors, or the small font, or the annoying banner.
Whatever it was, you knew one thing for sure: a captivating and usable web design is critical to ensuring a successful online presence.
I would go further and say that there is nothing more lasting than a first impression. After all, it can really make or break your online business success.
When someone comes to your site, you want the impression to be one that captures their attention and makes them want to stay.
In fact, you have about five seconds to do so. Any longer, and your potential client is going to move on.
This is why it's extremely important to build a site that is both visually appealing and relays your core message clearly.
But good web design principles go beyond the purely aesthetic. A website needs to be more than just eye candy - it needs to be optimized for search engine results, it needs to work in different browsers, it needs to inspire confidence in your customers, and ultimately it needs to increase conversion rates.
The fact of the matter is that anyone can build a website using cheap templates and their neighbor's college kid for help, but choosing this option means you may be compromising your business's reputation and your chances of generating traffic to your site.
If your design is not effective, ultimately you and your business will not be effective.
Let me put it in a different way - have you ever walked into a room and instantly felt at ease?
Your website should bring out the same feelings when someone visits your site.
A well designed website is like that comfortable room you just love spending time in - It transforms the way you feel and make you want to be there.
A well designed website catches visitor’s attention and compels them to seek further in the site.
A well-designed website signals trustworthiness and creates confidence so visitors know you are great at what you do.
And more than anything, a well-designed website converts a one-time visitor into a regular customer.

If you already have a website here are some questions you can use to assess its effectiveness:
1. Does your website quickly and clearly communicate your core message?
2. As a client, would you find your website user-friendly?
3. Do your pages load in a 5 seconds or less?
4. Are your pages easy to read and scan for information?
5. Can a visitor get the gist of a page within seconds?
7. Do you give potential clients a reason to give you their email address?
8. How does your site look and function on a smart phone or a tablet?
9. Does your website concentrate on your prospect’s specific needs?
10. How prominently are social media elements placed on your site?
11. Does your website have a clean layout with intuitive navigation?
12. Does your website encourage visitors to take guided action?
If your website design hasn’t changed in years or you’re not getting enough leads, it’s time for a change.

I initially hired Tal to make minor updates to my coaching website. He quickly demonstrated his value by providing suggestions for further improving my site and helped me develop a much better understanding of search engine optimization (SEO). I have already seen tremendous improvements in my website traffic in the short time since these changes were implemented. Tal is highly responsive, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend him. I know we will be working together again, soon!
