Simple Site Design Works Best. One big factor in Webdesign is simplicity. Not only in design but in development, SEO, writing and overall experience for your audience. It is important to create credible pages and posts.
How many times have you done an online search only to land on a website with blinking text, images that flash and pop-ups galore? Text too small or large, the site looks too complex, Or what about it taking forever to load. Most folks will look elsewhere for something quicker or easier to read.
In addition to speed and access, simple design should be easier to read and your visitor should find the information they are looking on the front (home) page. If so they will dig deeper eventually asking questions or make a purchase.
Another reason is your site needs to look less like a pushy sales pitch. A minimal, simple design will invite customers or visitors to learn what you have to offer without the feel of a sales pitch.
How long do visitors stay on a website?
It is a hard question to answer but on average not very long. Basically it is less than one minute. According to NNgroup.com
Users often leave Web pages in 10–20 seconds, but pages with a clear value proposition can hold people’s attention for much longer. To gain several minutes of user attention, you must clearly communicate your value proposition within 10 seconds.
People are in a hurry
People want answers now, folks who are looking for services, products or information are in a hurry your site could lead them to those answers. Finding a site that takes more than 3-4 seconds to load and they will go elsewhere. And it will take them about 00.5 milliseconds for them to form an opinion of your site.
They also read quickly sometimes they will read the first two sentences then scroll down to read more. This is why it is important to have the right titles and lots of white space in between them. Kind of like what you are reading right now.
