Probably poor web designs will kill your sales. First of all, it is not appealing at all. It's fine if you use simple design but make sure that it is not boring. One more thing is that you website must be user-friendly so it would be easier for the users to understand. Lastly, I think poor design may also lead for the users to think that the site is not legit at all.

When you're talking sales, you have to consider the know, like and trust factors. Which of them come into play with web design? Poorly designed sites typically don't rank well on search engines, so they're not going to be seen as often. Value add content can offset some design flaws, but when visitors happenstance on your site, you only have seconds to capture their attention. Professionally designed sites will reduce your bounce rates and increase your sales.

It's all about the visuals. People today tend to look at the appearance before looking at the contents. Somehow this has become a trend that almost everyone follows not just in web designing. As for me, I tend to go to websites that has interesting and eye catching designs specially if I still don't have a specific brand or product in mind. But still if the contents or products is not agreeable for me I go somewhere else. Design is important as well as the product.

for me it's yes because that is one of the quality that the client is looking for, the good design because when it looks good there is 90% can attract visitors.

of course. Look matters until you have huge reputation to get sales through word of mouth or something.
Website runs on two thing one is simple and functionly i.e. like google.com or with heavy eye catching design and so on.
So you have to decide.

Definitely!

Personally, a poor design won't go any further than 5 more minutes of my time. With our world's fast-paced changing and innovation, the design should not be held back or taken for granted. It serves as a door for customers, a good looking, clean, functional but simple door will help attract more people knocking or even coming in.

I totally agree with you. The design is the most important thing of a website. If you got poor design then it will result in poor traffic. I always close websites that have a bad design doesn't matter how valuable their content is I just close them away. A website must be usable for users to use it otherwise you won't make a good earning from it. I have visited a million websites with poor design, misplaced ads, a design from the 1920s. It's just sad to see something like this when someone doesn't keep a website clean as it should be.

Yes. When someone visits your site and see poor designs, they will be not interested and more probably do not visit your site again. As a visitor, I will really like it if the designs were nice and catchy.

Poor web design could cause your business' decline, probably if people find it difficult to know the things around your web, they would leave your site without seeing your products. Some customers wants to get easily around your site in able to get answers quickly and that would make customers visit your website or maybe recommend it to someone they know.

I think design is important but not that much. When it comes to your products people noticed first the services that you have, if it is good.

It has some effect. People who really think about the quality of it would not be affected by the design If it can do what it needs to do then there's no problem. But still, there are some people who would pick better design without really thinking about the quality. So it's better if you go with a good design and a good performance to attract both kinds of characters.

If you can make a fully functional web then why not do the same with the same. People today are choosy. You can't blame them because if I would pick between 2 webs that do the same but the other one has a good design then why not?

In my opinion, I believe having a good design is beneficial and is looked on in this modern age for sales but it's not required. If you have a good and repetitive product than it shouldn't really matter. Like some have said above if it does the job and provides information to the reader than it's okay to me. There are sites where they have a really good product but their site isn't the greatest; a few examples is Putty's website, an SSH Client, or VirtualBox by Oracle (I know they are free products but they are still relatively popular).

However, if the site has broken links or web pages that are not complete then I believe this is what can cause your sales to suffer.

Design are one of the most important aspects because this is the first thing that a user will see when visiting a website. First impression will be one factors for the user to stay on the site. Even thought your products price are reasonable but the website itself is somewhat not attractive or user friendly that cause your customer to leave without a second thought. That's why investing time on a design is must.

I'm not an expert webdesigner. I don't know how to make a website though. I just have slight idea about graphics. But Im a business administation student so I know about marketing. As you see. Webpage is the best way to showcase your products or service. How would you sell it if your webpage has a poor design. Websites should be appealing to the eye. To market. Customers love to browse and click if they can see. Widgets or attractive buttons over the webpage. You know what I'm saying?

Yes, most people today are based on what they see. People's expectation is high during this period. They will not be able to buy your product if your web design is not good. Selling part is to engage the person if your product's quality is good and it is based on what your store / website looks like. Let's also know things before about the business we will build and we must be prepared. Even you, do you buy the store that is dirty and has a pleasant smell? Even me, I will not buy there. Put yourself as a consumer, so you know what's right in the business you're building and you're ready for the changes and repairs.

The answer is in the question! Let's define what website design is: first of all, this is your business representative. Secondly, in that context, the design of a website is a functional solution of site's structure and graphic enviroment based on intended user's demands. You can use such web analytics tools as «Mint», «Clicky» or even «Google Analitycs» for monitoring users ongoings on your website and it can help you to find out how it works. Good luck!

Your Website makes an impact on your customer whether it good or bad it totally depends on your website design so, if you have a poor design website it will definitely kill your sales and not only sales it also makes a poor impression of your product on your customer, for your sale you must design your website or design with an affordable website design company

Yes, a poorly designed website will totally kill your sales. Is hard for people to trust such websites, especially when its filled with a lot of adds. A poorly design website implies the website owners are not serious, people want to see a rich invested designed website when they go to your site to purchase. Make sure your site is rich, clean and simple to use.

Certainly! Every websites has a goal, whether it is to get more sales, subscribers or downloads. It is just like ads, famous artists will promote a company's product to increase sales.
There are several factors that should be considered. Images are important as well as eye-catching designs. We all know that an image is worth a thousand words. The design should also be responsive because it can cause the loss of traffic and potential customers. A site should be designed to accommodate all visitors regardless of the type of devices they use when visiting. Colors play crucial role in web sign. The content must be visually-appealing.
If a site is catchy and it doesn't overwhelm me, I will definitely make time and shop!
