There are multiple direct and indirect costs to a bad website. A site with bad design is often the first impression a visitor might have of your organisation. No matter how nice and professional all the other details of your company are, if they go first to your bad website they will never experience any of the rest. A site with poor functionality will drive visitors away in frustration. Life is simply too short to be dealing with bad websites.
