Web Design

In 2019, your website can be the perfect online salesperson for your company 24/7 or it can work against you in an already competitive arena. A quality website should load fast, be visually appealing, and be easy to navigate. Most importantly, your visitors and potential customers should be able to quickly and easily find exactly what they are looking for on your website.

There is a myriad of articles on website “dos”, but not much information is out there on what you need to avoid. Here are three ways you can help mistake-proof your website.


Even if you have some experience with web design, take an honest look at your website. Could it be improved? Below is a list of the more common web issues to be avoided.


There are many ways that business owners and marketers can improve or identify errors within their websites. There are methods that are entirely focused on avoiding mistakes in the future, such as Poka Yoke. It’s a method of mistake proofing that helps identify problems in the process and not solely defective products. These techniques can then help with improving other parts of business.

More and more, Poka-Yoke is being seen in the user’s experience on websites. Posts in WordPress, for example, give you many chances to use an article before it is truly and completely deleted. Posts start as drafts, they can be scheduled, published, and then when the author no longer wants them to appear, they are moved to trash. Trash doesn’t completely delete the article, however. It can be restored and reused at any time until it is manually deleted permanently.

There are many tools available to help you prevent mistakes on your website. Outside of Poka-Yoke, there are also check up tools for SEO, speed, and more to help you design and maintain a website that’s a delight for your customers to use and will make them want to return.


Optimizing a website for mobile is ensuring that it will be appealing and function well on all mobile devices and computers. With over 60% of all mobile phone users accessing the internet from their devices, and an estimated five billion mobile phone users out there, not having a website that’s quick and easy to navigate across all devices is leaving money on the table. Additionally, Google likes and favors websites that are optimized for all devices, not just computers.

If you’re getting ready to craft a website for your business, optimizing it for mobile from the start is ideal. If your website is already established, it still can be optimized for mobile. If you don’t know where to start or need help, hiring a professional web-designer is often a good way to approach it and the improved traffic and reach will normally justify the expense.

By proactively seeking ways to avoid mistakes on your business website, you can greatly reduce the chances of error and find ways to make the site even better. Avoid the most common website mistakes, looking into methodologies and tools to help with human errors, and ensure your website is optimized for mobile so you can expand your target audience and make your website available to more users worldwide.
