Now that 2016 is done and dusted we tell you what mistakes you can avoid to build a professional website for your business

How to avoid building a horrible website?
 
To avoid building a horrible website or if you want to build a website but you are not sure how to build one then follow these instructions and you will learn all about the latest trends and design concepts.
 
Stay away from Flash
 
Yes, please don’t build a flash based website, since flash is dead and smartphones do not support flash. Don’t include anything flash related and that includes website intros, advertisements or any other flash animation.
 
Avoid music/loud voices/sound effects
 
When people visit your site, they are searching for information, they are not interesting in listening to music or sound effects. Keep your website simple and user friendly.
 
Responsive design
 
Google has forced responsive design and it penalizes sites that are not responsive. If your website can’t be viewed on a mobile then you already lost half of the traffic since a lot of people use their mobile phones to visit or shop online. User experience matters, specially after Google updated their algorithm.
 
Poor quality web design
 
Avoid using programs that produce poorly coded and ugly looking websites such as FrontPage. FrontPage is gone and lacks a lot of features that are a must in today’s web design. Instead, use a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, Magento or Drupal and buy professional looking templates.
