5 Tips For An Awesome Pharmacy Website Design

Pharmacy Website Design

 

Having the perfect pharmacy website design can drastically boost your sales. Let us show you how to get there!

Your pharmacy website is perhaps the most important tool that your business has. While your physical location (if you have one) is great for foot traffic, an online presence opens your business up to the world.

And make no mistake about it, the world is watching. Studies show that an overwhelming amount of people research a business before visiting and making a purchase.

Accordingly, your website needs to look its best and make a great first impression. Here are five pharmacy website design tips that are sure to improve your site.

1. Take Stock Of Your Current Site

Think of this step as taking digital inventory of your website. Before your redesign, you’ll need to really dissect your site and see what needs changing.

Sometimes, a redesign is as simple as consolidating a few pages or changing fonts and colors.

Other times it may mean scrapping a website entirely.

Start by considering which aspects of your site you’d like to change.

Grab a piece of paper or open a document on your computer and start coming up with a list. Prioritize each of the changes you’d like to see. Not only will this give you a better sense of what to change, it’ll make budgeting your redesign easier.

2. Learn From Your Competition

As a pharmacist, you’re facing a ton of competition around the globe. Even locally, there are likely at least a few dozen pharmacies in the area.

Don’t let this intimidate you, let it inspire you.

Big-name brands like CVS and Walgreens, have a lot to teach. Start perusing the most popular competition’s sites to get a feel for what visitors like. Think of it as a secret focus group, of sorts.

3. Always Design With The User in Mind

It’s easy to get lost in the mindset that your website exists only to advertise your business. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a great advertising tool, but keep in mind that your design reflects your business.

Therefore, it isn’t too much of a stretch to say that a user’s poor experience reflects badly on one’s pharmacy.

If you’ve designed your site to your taste, and not for the end user, you’re likely going to end up with a poor design.

Put yourself in the shoes of your user. Is your site easy to navigate? Do the color schemes fit? Is the text readable?

4. Pharmacy Website Design Should Have a Cohesive Theme

Imagine going to a site where every page has a different font and color scheme. It’d likely look pretty bad, wouldn’t it?

That’s why it’s important to come up with one cohesive theme to carry through the site’s design. From the homepage to the blog to the contact page, everything should look uniform.

Double-check that each page has the same color scheme, fonts, and text size.

5. Don’t Forget Mobile

As of last year, over half of all web traffic came from a mobile device. And that number is only expected to grow as time goes on.

Make sure you’re prepared by ensuring that your site scales to mobile. If you’ve outsourced your pharmacy website design or are using a site like WordPress, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Otherwise, consider switching to a hosting platform that supports mobile scaling.

I have been a customer of Innovative Solutions Group since 2013. Dustin is so wonderful to work with. He is patient, professional, and very knowledgeable. Anytime I reach out to the office, they are extremely responsive and address my need VERY quickly. I can't recommend this company enough!!! I am so grateful that I am able to have a successful web-based business, because of them!!Diana FlutieJune 29, 2021
I've worked with Dustin Reed at Innovative Solutions Group now for 2 1/2 years, and am so happy I found them. I came to ISG so frustrated. I'd had my website rebuilt by guys in Pennsylvania, and they never listened to me about anything--from a logo they designed that I didn't like, but they plastered all over the site, to how the site would operate. Dustin and I sat down and within 4 minutes he'd dealt with my most important issues. He continues to be resourceful, making my site much more profitable, and if quick to respond to problems. ISG happens to be close to my home, but I would recommend them to anyone dependable, professional service.eileen ClarkeFebruary 19, 2021

Work was done in a very timely matter and Dustin was great to work with!Jacob WanderseeJune 19, 2017
I used Dustin at Innovative Solutions to initially just host my website. After working with him I decided to do a pretty significant makeover on my site. He did a great job, was super responsive and has Fletcher in the Design Department to help with graphics and such. He answered inquiries after hours and is very reasonably priced. I have used quite a few web people over the years and Innovative Solutions is undoubtedly who I will continue to use.Gary GavinJune 9, 2017
