It takes a lot of hard work to build a beautiful, functional, and user-friendly website.
At Bloominari, our San Diego Website Design Agency, we ensure that our client’s websites are designed to appeal to their customers. After all, search engines bots don’t have credit cards to pay for your services, but online users do.
Furthermore, website developers and designers need to work together to ensure your website is visible to search engines.
More importantly, your website MUST be able to inspire visitors to become customers or religious readers.
This requires many processes. Here’s a checklist of 18 important tasks to consider to design an effective business website:
A lot of things make a website look good. One site can draw you in with stunning images. Another makes your jaw drop with how it plays with fonts. Then there’s the way it uses color, which pretty much brings a website to life.
Color, indeed, plays a crucial role in making a website look pretty. However, there’s more to color as used in websites than meets the eye.
Many of us may not realize it, but the colors as used on any one website are also meant to elicit certain reactions, emotions, and attitudes from the people who visit them. At least that’s what color psychology is telling us.
Today’s buyers are impatient — they don’t have time, patience or desire to sit around and wait for your website to load on their smartphone or desktop. When browsing online, pages should load almost instantaneously. The longer you make consumers wait, the more likely it is that they’ll lose interest. If you lose their interest right off the bat with a slow-loading website, it’ll be difficult to win them back no matter how great your products, services, or promotions are.
So how can you ensure that you keep them interested, right from the beginning? The first step is to ensure that your page load speed is up to par, and can compete with other websites. There are certain steps that you can take to ensure that your website doesn’t lag. Page load time is an important aspect when it comes to reducing lost web visitors (reduce bounce rate).
Generating organic search traffic is hard. If anyone tells you it’s simple, they have lied to you!
Consider this scenario: If your website is fairly new, all your content pages will take 5 to 12 months because they can rank highly on Google. It’s a fact!
Why? It’s because Google has to test your new content against the competitors’, in order to determine which one is most valuable and answers the user’s search intent (not query).
More so, Google wants to know if your content fills the gap that your competitors have ignored or missed out on — before they can rank your page in their top organic results.
Not every website is built to generate leads. A high-converting website is laid out with a good understanding of the end user. It goes beyond throwing a “click here” button on your homepage, sitting back, and watching the leads roll in.
In reality, the bar has been raised. As a digital marketer or company, you need to adopt a more strategic approach to website design.
In this informative guide, I’ll walk you through some of the important elements and ways you can optimize your website for lead generation. No, it’s not that difficult!
The first important element to keep in check is you must...

A well-designed website is one of the most critical parts of your success online.
In a recent study, marketers say building a website or a landing page and testing them is one of the five challenges faced by B2B marketers.
Have you ever completed a BuzzFeed-like online quiz in order to find out how you “rank” or “score” compared to others who also participate in the quiz? Chance are you’ve taken at least one of these types of quizzes. It’s our human nature to want to participate in these types of quizzes to see how we stack against others, or simply out of the curiosity to find out the “secret” or “answer” that the quiz promises to solve.
Most people wouldn’t spend too much time deciding whether or not to take a quiz online, as they’re usually short, fun, and easy to complete - plus they come with the reward of knowing your result upon completing it. Yet, if that same quiz was called an “online form”, or “survey”, then most people might think twice before deciding to commit their time and attention to completing such form or survey. Even if the actual quiz or survey had the same questions, the fact that one is labeled as a quiz automatically breaks the barrier people have to complete it. Why? Because in most instances the quiz becomes a game, and a challenge, rather than a “task” you have to complete.
A good popup not only helps you to build your email list quickly, it's also a powerful tool for presenting relevant offers at crucial moments when your customers will respond to it.
Sadly, most people hate website popups because they can be annoying at times. If the popup doesn't show up at the right time, you might end up losing a customer who's ready to buy your product or service.
In this in-depth article, we look at the 5 popup mistakes website owners are making and how to quickly fix them. We'll also share examples in each part so you know exactly what not to do.
