Then and Now: Website Facelifts
Professional first impressions are no longer determined by a firm hand shake or a building. Consumers are hitting the World Wide Web to get a first glance at companies before they devote time and energy into conducting business. It’s a shallow world we live in. According to a study completed at Stanford University, 75% of people judge the credibility of a company based on the design of its website alone. Let’s break it down; three in every four people are using your website as your 24-hour salesperson. So, dress your company webpage with its nicest slacks, most shined shoes, and prettiest tie, because those you wish to impress are sitting behind a screen.
