Website design elements that have impact

Well conceptualized infographic on the elements of website design that increase ROI. It’s definitely no surprise that sharing leads to more eyeballs on your site, but what design elements keep those viewers there long enough to produce sales? Click infographic to see original post and full infographic.

Earlier in the summer at the Front End Design Conference #frontendconf, the idea was presented that some of these impact elements are dead, specifically giant billboard rotators at the top of your site. I think that a better way to have put that would have been to say all of these mentioned elements from rotators to badges to hot spots to call-to-actions all should be dead. By that I mean if there are any elements on your site at all that are there “just cause they are neat and you are capable of coding them,” they should be removed. All rotators aren’t dead, only those with no purpose related to the site.

Be purposeful when designing, whether for the web or for any medium. No design elements have impact if they aren’t purpose driven.#ourwebsitesucks
