When commissioning a design company to promote your brand and website, think in simple terms and don’t try to put absolutely every single piece of information about your company on your ‘Home’ page. Remember facts that you may find absolutely fascinating might bore your potential audience to tears.
Strong striking images, with limited prose are far more arresting and memorable than reams of densely written copy. If you think of the five most important facts that you want to transmit and then disperse other information about your company and its products on to your other company web pages you won’t have annoyed your web visitor, and you may well have intrigued them.
