About Carrd templates
How do you do great web design for your Carrd website? You're not a designer? Carrd templates to the rescue!
Whether you're a startup, solopreneur, freelancer, or small business owner, Carrd templates kickstart your website with style and efficiency. And of course this is also true if your goal is to build a personal website.
Carrd templates allow you to build on a professional designer's expertise. Typically you'll spend days or weeks when starting with a blank slate. A Carrd template lets you build and launch a professional site in a matter of hours.
A well designed website is critical for your success
For some websites the bounce rate is 95%. This is the number of users that close the landing page right after they see it. You obviously do not want to be that website's owner. You want a low bounce rate.
When people first come to your site or landing page you'll want to do everything right for them. A good first impression will build enough trust with your audience (new or returning) to read on, to remember you and to finally buy from you or book your services. Great design does not just look good. It creates a positive impression, establishes your credibility, and engages your visitors. Basically it lays the foundation for your online success.
