Website trends are just like fashion. Each year, new styles come in and old looks become quickly outdated. On the web, this can have a big impact on your business’ ability to stay competitive and attract new customers.
With this in mind, we’ve pulled together some of the biggest emerging trends for 2013 – in both form and function – to help you stay ahead of the game and grow your business all year long.
A few key takeaways from the infographic below:
1. Mobile browsing on tablets and smartphones continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Responsive design — websites that self-adjust for different screens — will be big.
2. Integration with social media will become even more important for businesses looking to find new customers and build loyalty.
3. To accommodate smaller screens and shorter attention spans, website designs will use bigger buttons and simpler layouts to encourage engagement.
