There are even more statistics and facts within the infographic itself, but these are the hardest-hitting, at-a-glance stats we found. Even if you just take a quick glance at these numbers, you can seethe value in a beautiful, functional website that really serves the user.

But if you’re pursuing a DIY solution for your own website, or are planning on enlisting a designer soon, then the general concepts you pull from these statistics are something you should keep in mind. The user comes first, and approaching a website in any other way usually results in costly mistakes and missed opportunities.
