Added exposure through CSS galleries:
One of the benefits of having a professional design created is that you are able to submit the website to galleries around the web and have it showcased to audiences that you would have otherwise never been in front of. This brings in added traffic, potential clients and also adds to your authority by being talked about across the web and showcased as a professional website.
Your first impressions do count:
Your first impression made is an important one – and a professional website design is definitely going to leave a better first impression – one that looks as if it was put together by someone who is expert in doing that.
Highlight your expertise with ease:
With a professional website design, you are able to showcase the things you do best – if you are a designer, the design itself showcases your skills and if you are a writer, you are able to utilize a great design to highlight areas you excel at – maybe setting.
Better design + more eyes = More sales:
With your excellent design, you are attracting visitors from all over the web – they want to sit & stare at the beautiful website design you have got on display and then, out of nowhere, they are going to get the urge to pull their credit card out of their pockets and buy tons of products from you. Well, it might not happen exactly like that, but a good design that brings in more visitors is definitely going to have some of that trickle into your sales.
Less bugs and cross browser compatibility:
A professional web designer will ensure that your website is clearly viewable on all major browsers, thus giving you the ability to keep your professional appearance up in front of everyone viewing your site, even those who are viewing in the less-than-popular browsers.
