Suppose, you need something, you went to a big super mart and then felt completely lost there. There are no signboards locating different categories or stalls. You’ve no idea where to go, where to find what, and what you need next...!
You’ll feel completely lost. Isn’t it..?
But if there are department locators, signboards, they work like maps, or make navigation easier.
The similar thing can be applied in your professional life. A well designed, attractive website but with no navigation or poor navigation is equal to having no website at all. All the decorum and development has no value, if the customer feels lost on your website. Even though the customer likes your service or content, he won’t know where to go next. Completely directionless...!
A well designed website doesn’t only include good graphics, fonts and templates. But it must be loaded with other important features such as SEO friendly, responsive, and having proper navigation. The customer might exit your website or worse may never return to you or your services if your site doesn’t provide proper navigation. The time period that the client spend on your site also matters. Thus, make sure to guide the user to the end so that he turns into one of your trusted client or customer.
This helps better communication with the customer. They get to know your company well and the website is the only medium of communication any digital marketing company can establish with their customers.
