Website Design FAQ’s
How can I improve website performance?
With the majority of users choosing to leave sites with loading times of over 3 seconds, ensuring your website performs well has never been more important. Make the most of the low bounce rates, higher rankings, and higher conversion rates experienced by high-performance websites using the following techniques;
- Use a CDN (content delivery network) to shorten the distance between the user and web hosting server
- Use a reputable, high-performance host. Those looking for guaranteed speed may look to switch from a sharing server to a dedicated server or VPN.
- Compress image files where possible using online tools such as ImageOptim
- Use only necessary plugins
- Use website caching to avoid repeat rendering
How can my website make money?
It is entirely possible to design your website to function as an extension of your business’ sales department, helping make money for your business through conversion and lead generation.
Optimising your website for conversions (also known as CRO) through design, effective layout, and the inclusion of technical SEO can help drive visitors from search results page to purchase or lead form, increasing your bottom line at little cost.
Those looking for off-page techniques for conversion optimisation may wish to look into PPC and Google Ads campaigns.

Do I need a website if I have a Facebook Business page?
The GLO team believe that websites are the key elements of businesses looking to establish a strong online presence. Though Facebook Business pages are a highly effective asset and digital marketing tool, websites allow for full control over the presentation of your business - offering bespoke functionality unavailable in social media page formats.
Whilst Facebook Business pages limit your potential clientele to Facebook users, websites are near-universally accessible and allow for the implementation of organic optimisation methods such as SEO and CRO.
In short, a standalone Facebook Business page may significantly limit your business’ growth - whilst the combination of a strong social media presence and optimised website will help you get ahead, and stay ahead of the crowd.
How can I make websites look the same on all browsers and devices?
Ensuring your website is fully responsive and optimised for use across all browsers and devices is hugely important, with mobile traffic more prevalent than ever. GLO’s web designers recommend the following steps to those looking to build a website functional on both mobile and desktop;
- Ensure text and buttons are suitably sized across all screen dimensions and platforms
- Conduct regular tests to ensure your website is mobile-friendly
- Keep your web design simple and functional
- Place all important information in easy-to-find locations
- Optimise for high performance
- Include an option allowing users to switch to desktop view
Those looking to test their website for mobile usability can use Google’s ‘mobile-friendly test’ - a helpful tool allowing users to test whether or not their site is usable on mobile devices by simply pasting the URL. Google will provide a screenshot of the page’s mobile appearance, and provide a list of suggested improvements.
How does website design affect sales?
Many web designers argue that design and UX are king - they’re not wrong. Effective web design can be used to capture the user from landing page onwards, skillfully guiding them towards the client’s desired action. In addition to this, as the ability of developers and designers has evolved - the appearance and functionality of sites can have significant influence over the degree of trust held by the user - making or breaking conversions.
Effective web design isn’t just aesthetically pleasing - it prioritises UX, and takes into account visitor intent and behaviour. Luckily for those looking to make independent website alterations, these factors may be analysed using the Hotjar Behavior Analysis tool.
What is website hosting?
Web hosting is an online service allowing for the launch and operation of websites, delegating users a portion of a web server for a monthly ‘hosting fee’, allowing for the storage of data, and letting users access and interact with the site on a continual basis.
Website hosting is an imperative element of the launch and function of websites of any size or scope - as no site can exist on the internet without access to a sufficient web server. Though these servers may be purchased and run independently, they often require a significant upfront investment, costing hundreds of thousands of pounds. Hosting offers a cost-effective solution to this, allowing for the ‘lease’ of web server space to any individual or business able to afford a comparatively small monthly fee.
What is Web Design?
Web design is a process of creating a design for a website, heavily involving both aesthetics, and functionality. Not to be confused with web development, web design involves extensive planning, conceptualisation, and content implementation across all pages of a website under construction. It’s a fast-evolving field, set to involve an increasing number of services and considerations revolving around user expectation and experience - particularly as a result of the number of device types used to browse websites - from mobile phones to car consoles.
GLO’s team of professional web designers are highly experienced across every element of the web design process - and committed to further learning as the field evolves. We won’t just design you a beautiful site, we’ll ensure that it’s fully optimised, functional and responsive across all devices, and built with UX in mind.
What is the difference between web design and web development?
Whilst web designers work to create a website design, focusing on aesthetics alongside functionality and usability, web developers construct and implement all technical elements. Web designers work to create a well-received and cohesive visual journey but are also required to consider user behaviour - meaning they are required to ensure that the design and visual elements of the website guide the user to complete the client’s desired action - for example, fill in a well-placed lead generation form.
What does UX stand for?
UX stands for user experience - a concept commonly applied throughout the web design process. Websites built with UX in mind deliver a valuable and relevant journey to visitors, taking utmost consideration for the way in which they will interact, and offering a fully optimised design.
Creating a smooth UX can be imperative to the performance of your website - those without it may not be able to capture the attention of their user, meaning their CTAs and lead forms will not perform as intended.

What is a landing page?
Landing pages are highly effective digital marketing tools, implemented across a number of websites - most commonly advertising campaigns. These ‘standalone’ web pages are built as a landing point for visitors clicking a link through online ads, or within emails. Typically short in length and implementing bold CRO strategies, landing pages have one goal - to encourage the visitor to act - inspiring increased conversion rates, and generating relevant leads quickly and effectively.
The focused nature of these pages makes them an excellent option for helping ensure your digital marketing campaign generates results beyond website traffic - often resulting in significantly lowered campaign costs.
