What is 'Made with Mono'?
With more than 110.000 active websites hosted on the Mono Platform, it's safe to say our partners - and their designers - are always very busy coming up with new ideas and designs. Made with Mono (the Best Website Competition) was created to provide our partners with a wide breadth of inspiration for future site creation. Not a partner? See how you can become one here.
Made with Mono is an opportunity for these designers to compete for the honour of being named Best Website Designer using the Mono Platform. The designer who creates the most well-designed and professional real-life site for their small business client on the Mono Platform wins!
If you are a Mono Partner, and have created a site on the Mono Platform in 2023, now is the time to showcase your work!
What makes a good website?
A good website is easy to use, has up-to-date technology and features, looks professional, emphasizes a great customer journey, and is optimized for conversions.
Website visitors decide whether they like a site or not in a mere blink of an eye. So the website's homepage must target the needs and expectations of site visitors in a structured, helpful, and visually pleasing way.
A successful website not only captures a visitor's attention but also uses design choices that leave a lasting positive impression, ensuring the site stands out in their memory.
Check out the Best Website Competition 2023 showcase below to find design inspiration on how you can use trust, conversion, and design to create a great website and find our blog posts on these topics to get additional insight on website design.
