Have you ever gone to a blog or website looking for either information, the best prices, or reviews on products? What happens when you get there and you’re looking at a disorganized, ugly site that’s full of ads, poorly laid out and with either an ugly or even no header? I bet you leave, don’t you?
If you want to decrease your bounce rates, keeps visitors on your site, then you owe it to them and to your business to have a well laid out design and a professionally designed set of graphics. Right now, I’m seeing lots of people advertising “gorgeous, professional designs” that are, to be blunt, crap. Anyone can toss together a free theme, or even create a custom theme with with a program, but are they really professional looking? Personally, I don’t think so, and neither does my husband.
My husband Jim has been a professional graphic designer for over 20 years. He has the latest software available at his fingertips, and frankly, his designs are amazing. He was one of the very top designers at the World’s Largest Entertainment Company until he decided to become a freelance graphic designer, and now I’m the lucky one who gets to benefit. He has artistic visions that I would never dream of, but he creates some truly stunning designs. I take his headers, and design the site around them – quite the opposite of the way most designers work, but that’s one of the things that makes our sites stand out from the crowd.
Don’t settle for less than the best!
