But, bad websites can harm your reputation.

Here are some business website mistakes to avoid:

  • Don’t use outdated platforms. It’s clear when a website is using old technology, and can make it frustrating for the user.
  • Ensure consistency. When graphics, text and styles clash, the message can be lost.
  • Ensure key messages are easy to find, and the layout of the website is user-friendly.
  • Stick with the company brand. Make sure the design and message of the website match the image of your organization.
  • Don’t adopt every popular technology. Switching to new platforms frequently can confuse for users.
