Design Plays an important Role
There is one thing you always need to remember that you are building the website for the users not for you, you know each and every bit of information about your business, you need to understand that same information or the one you want to communicate to the user, so the design of the website must be complementing the content and vice-versa. Many a times the design is extraordinary, but there is no informative content which may engage the user, and vice-versa, so they both must be complemented.
You should be aware of that the content is the core of the website, as on your website the user will try and find his way on his own, so the content, first of all, must be very engaging and further it must be well structured, in a way it must define what is important and relevant rather than just talking about unnecessary details. Further you must analyze your target group of customers and build the content accordingly, have a fine research about the content and its usability on your website and then only finalize it, further most importantly it must complement your design.

There are numerous websites which only work on their appearances, so it can play a big role depending upon what the design is and its usability among your potential clients and users. The font style, topography all comes under the blanket of visual design. Sometimes on a certain website there is very little text, but a lot of visually attractive content and they do well. It all depends on how you will communicate with your users and potential clients in the first place.
Of all there is one thumb rule which should not be neglected, it is based on the fact that ultimately the website will serve the purpose to communicate your users well about your business and offering, so whatever design, content, and visual design you will be opting, keep in mind your users’ interest in it, any combo which serves as more engaging and more user friendly will solve the purpose.
