Today, most, if not all, products and services anyone can think of could already be found through the internet. From beauty products to car parts and services ranging from a massage to hot tub maintenance, Google search results will quickly give you dozens of results.  

But how exactly do we weigh our options? What are our presupposed standards for choosing the right website to take care of our needs? In the blog ahead, we will be discussing the unwritten criteria on how we decide which service websites. We have also listed our favorites and the reasons why we love them!  

Clarity  

A great website is clear. As service-providing companies, most of the online traffic for these websites is from first-timers. Thus, these sites must be clear and concise. The website itself must leave no question for the visitor, and all sections must be sensible and useful. The hierarchy of information must be evident through the design and the content itself. Most people are in a hurry, so prioritizing the most important bits of information will benefit both the company and the prospective customer.  

Visual Design  

Along with the website’s clear direction, strong visuals also play a big role in retaining visitors’ attention. Did you know that 38% of the visitors will leave a webpage if they find the design unpleasing? Unsurprisingly, I would, too. When a website’s got a stunning design, it will be its own magnet to keep us scrolling.  

Direction  

A service website must lead you to your goal: their service. Therefore, it should be easy for the visitors to avail their service through great calls to action and easy contact. When communication is easy, people will have a greater tendency to trust the service provider.  

Without further ado, we have listed the AllThingsWWW favorite service websites that we think encapsulates the criteria discussed above.
