When logging in to Select Web’s client WordPress website dashboards, I’m greeted by the bold statement that a “new, modern publishing experience is coming soon”. I am given the option of installing and testing the new editor from WordPress, called Gutenberg.
Last year, we highlighted seven eye-catching website design trends that we predicted would make their mark in 2017. In keeping with this tradition, we thought it only right to highlight what we believe are the top eight trends that will dominate website design in 2018. (Yes, we’re working our way to a top 10 in 2020!)
Web design, much like fashion, is often subject to crazes, fads and whims that blow hot for a season and are cold the next. That said, some of the emerging trends for this year might show their usefulness from both a user and a designer perspective and set a trend for years to come.
Your website is a great way to promote and sell your products and services. However, in an online world where the limits of trust are constantly being tested, users may be forgiven for being sceptical about your offering if your website is not up to scratch.
In the same way that you run your business in a professional way by dressing appropriately and being on time for appointments, it goes without saying that good website design is so important for making the right impression for your target audience.
Website visitors make judgement calls in the blink of an eye and it’s estimated that one in five will leave and never return.
So, what elements will a well-designed website contain in 2017 that sets it apart and converts leads into paying customers?
This new mobile friendly website development for www.blupool.co.za is an example of what we can do for your business.
It is vitally important that your company stands out from the crowd and makes a lasting positive impression when customers find you on search engines and visit your site. This could be either the start of a profitable relationship or sadly the last time they you will ever cross paths.
If you need help with digital marketing or websites give us a call and lets start a discussion about how we can help you grow your business.

Eric Prinsloo was fortunate to be able to attend Joomla! Day Johannesburg - South Africa from the 18th to the 19th of October 2013.
South African and international industry leaders who use Joomla!, the award winning CMS and application development system, attended this conference.
They shared ideas and were informed of new developments in forthcoming releases.
Overall a very pleasant and worthwhile event.
