Your website is like a commercial for your business running 24/7. Within seconds, your website will give visitors an impression of your business. Whether this is a good impression or a bad impression all depends upon the appearance of your website. If it’s a bad impression, visitors will likely leave rather quickly, and you’ll rarely have a chance to make a second impression.
