    Websites are usually difficult to promote. What do you think will be more effective if you are just starting your website: attractive design or polished site functionality?
    Which will give you more visits and leads?

    Functionality, if people review the site that convenient to use unlike the others, they might just go with yours.

    *****More useful content
    ****More research on keywords, so that we can produce more relevant content according to user need.
    *** Medium effort spend to link building, only focus on quality links (links potential to generate referral traffic)
    ** Promote to social media
    * if you have budget, subscribe PPC services.

    Having a good design and site functionality both are equally essential. While these things would determine if the visitor stays on your site and gets interested it won't get you visits itself. For getting more visits you need to promote your site properly and use the right tactics. Use social media and other other sites to promote effectively.

    I agree that having a good site functionality and a good design are both equally important. With just a good design, the website is good to look at and appreciate the nice design, but there's nothing to do with it beyond that. With just good content, it's good to read a few articles or use it a few times, but the bad design will make it unpleasant to visit and use in the long run. Also, depending on how severe the bad design could be, it could also make it more difficult to use the site because of bad navigation or something of that nature. But with having both, it's like having a double layered candy - both good on the outside and inside, but only having functionality or design is like having one layer than the other filled with dirt.

    Having both aspects of the site done very well is an important part of the success of your website.

    It depends on what your website is.

    but generally, contents play a big role in website promotions. I am not only talking about articles. It could be videos, infographics, etc. It depends on your target audience.

    well a web site design should be very attractive with good content so that it can be attractive.
    And i think search engine optimization (SEO) is the best way to promote the web site because when your site would be at the top of the search engine that you will get more visitor.
    Thanks you all for sharing very good information .
    Best regards.
    Aaron.

    It would be more effective if you polish the whole functionality of your website first. It is the basic foundation of your website which will in turn, compliment with your design. Not only will the functionality suffices users but also bots that will crawl your site and will index your pages.

    Also take note that user experience is mostly based on how they are being able to roam around you pages to find the information they want as easy as possible [which is more about functionality].

    first of all we have to focus on the information(content) of the website according to the type of website and the second but not least is outlook of website , because it is just like that ur attracted by good looking shop to buy and to eat some thing first but if the quality of service provided is nit good u never come back to that shop .. so the same thing is happens with the websits,,,,,,,,,,,
