Website building platforms that make creating your brand’s online presence a straightforward process have become fairly commonplace. Their accessibility makes it tempting to cut corners on the website design budget but when 38% of visitors stop engaging if the content or layout is unattractive, it’s clear that this is an area worthy of investment.
