Bad Websites Don't Build Trust

There's a Dutch saying, "Trust arrives on foot, but leaves on horseback." This is true of people trusting your brand as they experience it online. Most people who visit your site, start out with a good deal of trust in your brand. They came to you curious and open, and hope that by spending a bit of time on your site, they will easily find the information they need. 

It only takes one moment of confusion for people to spend their time (and money) somewhere else.

The four most common things which erode trust are:

  • Unclear messaging - Users don't understand how and why you make their world better.
  • Confusing navigation - unclear choices, not mobile-friendly.
  • Poor design taste - bad style sends the message that you lack attention to detail.
  • Outdated Information - Irrelevant posts, dates, events, contact information.

Over the past few years, I've helped close to 40 business owners build effective websites across all kinds of industries: landscaping, interior designer, finance, apparel, and consulting firms.

I've helped each of my clients build mobile-friendly, easy to navigate, and strategically messaged websites. My consultative approach will help you get the most out your budget and put you on a strategic path.

Here's a sample of the sites I've done...
