7 Money Murdering Mistakes No Web Designer Would Dare Tell You

There’s no better time to take a look at your web strategy than right now . 

The essence of a winning  website is to connect you and your prospective buyers.

However, this can only be achieved with a website with the right features.


I want to reveal to you some mistakes that most web designers make in small business web design. 

These mistakes should be avoided at all cost . 


MISTAKE #1: Design that Lack Mobile-Friendly experience

MISTAKE #2:  Design With No Clear-Cut about Your Target Buyers

MISTAKE #3:  No strong call to action that drives users

MISTAKE #4:  No Analytics to Measure Performance

MISTAKE #5:  Website Not HTTPS (Secure)

MISTAKE #6: Website Slow Load Time 

MISTAKE #7: No Blog Integration 

MISTAKE #1: Design that Lack Mobile-Friendly experience

Mobile-Friendly experience is also known as responsiveness.


Most online buyers are mobile users. Ie Consumers use their smartphone more than the desktop online . 

Google is very interested in mobile user experience. One of the things that G will demand when you want to optimise your site, is its responsiveness .  

Take note that Google does not approve any website that is not responsive. 

Responsiveness is the ability to automatically resize a website in different devices ( Desktop, laptop, smartphones ) to make it look good.

Visit this Website (Yazida Stitches) on your desktop and then on your smartphone to compare.

Be at alert because the majority of website designers are ignorant or too lazy to implement it .


MISTAKE #2:  Design With No Clear-Cut about Your Target Buyers

90% of Website designers are guilty of not factoring in the target buyers persona in website design. 

They usually don’t probe to understand who you actually want to sell to.

No business thrives when the dream customers are not known. In the same line, an effective website cannot be designed if the dream buyers are not factored in the design .

MISTAKE #3:  No Strong Call To Action (CTA)That Drives Visitors


This may be one of the most underrated website design mistakes out there.


Call to Action(CTA) means what next you want your website visitors to do .

CTA  has to be written in a simple clear compelling tune. Eg


  • Subscribe
  • Add to Cart
  • Get Started
  • Request a Demo
  • Sign  Up . Etc
  • Buy Now

MISTAKE #4:  No Analytics to Measure Performance

This is most frequent in the world of web design mistakes.

Google Analytics is one of the most popular digital analytics software. 

It is Google’s free web analytics service that allows you to analyze in-depth detail about the visitors on your website. 

It provides valuable insights that can help you to shape the success strategy of your business.


Pix design 3


Google Analytics measures  your (website ) data, such as the city where traffic is coming from, the page you’re measuring, or the social media channel you’re evaluating etc


MISTAKE #5:  Website Not HTTPS (Secure)


In this age of cyber threats and online uncertainty, consumers are losing confidence.

HTTPS tells customers that you’re utilizing an SSL certificate. 

Https:www at your address bar means that your website got verified and that their information is being handled safely.


Pix design 2


Https have distinct advantages over http 


Not having a secure website is like waving a red flag for both search engines and cautious website visitors.

The search engines push websites that are not https: further down in the search results and limit your online visibility.


MISTAKE #6: Website Slow Load Time 

Website load time is the time it takes your website to load when keyed into a browser.

A slow website load time limits your business.

A slow website load time affects the SEO- search engine Optimization . 

A slow load time discourages website users (high bounce rate) . 

Every website owner should ensure that fast load time is top on the list for your website. 

A lot of website designers are not concerned about it but you should .

Slow website load time is from 3seconds and above. 


MISTAKE #7: No Blog Integration 

Top brands and businesses create blog post to educate their customers, share news, and reach a wider audience. 

Blogging is an essential part of online marketing strategy for many businesses.

They are used to drive traffic to websites via SEO integration . 

You must ensure that your website developer integrates it into your website . 


You need to ask these few questions to a website developer before you hire him .


  • How will I drive traffic to the website?
  • Who is going to update the website, and how often?
  • How much will website maintenance or updates cost?
  • Will I own the cpanel After Design ? (Cpanel is your right)

Strive Masiyiwa Moments



This is the success story of Strive Masiyiwa. A business leader who based his success on the betterment of his people, nation, and continent. He faced a lot of challenges from Zimbabwe spanning through Nigeria, and his courage to stand strong in the face of overwhelming adversity to attain success while still giving back to the society is an inspiration to many.

Today, he is not just one of Africa’s wealthiest and most powerful personalities but is the founder of one of Africa’s leading telecoms companies, Econet.

Strive Masiyiwa is famous for his philanthropic efforts and passion for social/economic empowerment. And has become a man whose actions changes lives and creates lasting legacies.

The Early Years Of Strive Masiyiwa

On the 29th of January, 1961 the Masiyiwas welcomed their baby boy, Strive, to the world. The Masiyiwas were a hardworking family living in South Rhodesia which was later renamed Zimbabwe. At that time, the Ian Smith government was collapsing in the face of anti-colonialism and revolution.

Knowing that political unrest meant economic hardship, the Masiyiwas made the decision to leave their home country. So in 1968, seven years old Strive and his family moved to Kitwe, a popular copper mining town in North-central, Zambia. Shortly after, Mr Masiyiwa, Strive’s Father, got a job working in one of Kitwe’s copper mines. His entrepreneurial mother got involved in transportation, farming, and retail businesses. The business so prospered that Mr Masiyiwa left his mining job and joined the family business.

Education And Military Career

In 1973, the Masiyiwas were able to afford what many African parents wanted for their children; a European education. When he was 12 years old, Strive Masiyiwa left Zambia for an education at a private secondary school in Edinburg, Scotland.

After his graduation in 1978, Strive (17) decided to join the anti-colonial movement in Zimbabwe. When he got there, he met a senior officer who told him told him that what Zimbabwe needed wasn’t more fighters but builders. Taking that advice to heart, he turned around and went back to the U.K.

Strive was then admitted into the University of Wales where he obtained a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 1983.e

Pre-Entrepreneurship Experience

Done with his tertiary education, Strive Masiyiwa joined the corporate world. For a short while, he worked in the tech industry in Cambridge, England. In 1984, he returned to the post-colonial, newly independent Zimbabwe.

Strive Masiyiwa was ready to begin rebuilding his country.

He was employed as a senior engineer at the state-owned telephone Zimbabwean company, Posts and Telecommunications Corporations (PTC). Strive’s brilliance and excellent work ethic caused his superiors to fast-track his promotion from senior to principal engineer in the corporation in a short period of time.

Despite career progress, there was something lacking. Strive Masiyiwa was disturbed by incessant government formalities hindering the progress of the industry. And in 1988, he quit PTC to start his own company, Retrofit Engineering. It was a move that earned him Zimbabwe’s Youngest Businessman of the Year Award in 1990.S

The Retrofit Engineer

Strive Masiyiwa’s entry into the entrepreneurial world was entirely on time. At this time, the construction industry in Zimbabwe was booming. Strive organized a team of about 100 people, launched Retrofit Engineering with about $75 and began offering electrical engineering services on a contract basis.

Five years later, Retrofit Engineering became a top engineering company in the country.

The Econet Empire; Beginning, Trials, And Success.


Strive Masiyiwa’s telecom empire, Econet, started with the idea of a problem that needed an effective solution. He saw that at the time most Africans did not know about mobile telecommunications. Some hadn’t even heard a cell phone ring. In a world that was constantly advancing technologically, this was a huge problem. It was a need that had to be supplied and used to move his country to the new age of technology.

Thus began the journey towards the establishment of the mobile telecom operation service in Zimbabwe.

In 1994, Strive Masiyiwa prepared a business plan and approached the CEO of Standard Chartered Merchant Bank, Dr Nkosana Moyothe. He laid out his ideas to the CEO and requested a loan to fund his novel company. Fortunately, the bank believed in him and gave him the loan he needed. With the capital in place, he went to his former place of employment, PTC. Masiyiwa had prepared a proposal that included a partnership with a mobile telecoms company. According to the proposal, PTC would own 51% shares leaving Masiyiwa with 49% stake.

But he was shut down completely!

His former employers took a look at his business idea and discarded it. As far as they were concerned, PTC was and would always be the leading (if not the only) telecommunications corporation in Zimbabwe. They were firm in the belief that mobile telecommunication was a temporary phase and that people would return to the traditional in no time.

There and then, his application for a business license was denied.

First Trials:

Probably to the dismay of the PTC and Zimbabwean government, Strive Masiyiwa was not a man to be defeated by the word, “No”. Instead, it strengthened his resolve to achieve something that was definitely going to be the start of something great for Zimbabwe.

Strive Masiyiwa began the 5-year legal (bankrupting) battle with the Zimbabwean government. Till this day, people describe it as a David and Goliath combat. And as the Bible story goes, Strive Masiyiwa (David) defeated Goliath (the government). For in 1998, the Constitutional Court of Zimbabwe awarded Strive Masiyiwa the license to establish and operate a mobile telecom service in Zimbabwe.

His victory ended the government’s monopoly over the telecoms industry and ushered in the era of privately-owned telecoms companies.

Soon after, Strive Masiyiwa established Econet Wireless, Zimbabwe.

In about 12 years, Masiyiwa proved PTC wrong; Econet Wireless is and remains the leading mobile Telecoms Company in Zimbabwe.

The Econet Group:

In March 2000, Masiyiwa left Zimbabwe to South Africa on a self-imposed exile. But this was not a decision he made lightly. Although he won the licensing battle, things were far from settled. The Zimbabwean government had no intention of letting things go without retaliation.

While on exile, he founded the Econet Wireless group. However, the company had no connection to Econet Wireless in Zimbabwe. This was the group that led to the establishment of a global empire.

At present, the Econet Group has holdings and investments in the U.K, China, South America, UAE, New Zealand, Europe, and Africa.

Masiyiwa’s major businesses are Econet Wireless Burundi, Econet Wireless International, Econet Satellite Services, Former Econet Nigeria (Now Airtel), Lesotho Telecom, Transaction Processing Systems, Rwanda Telecom, Solarway, Mascom Wireless Botswana, Econet Wireless Global, and Econet Wireless South Africa.

He is an investor in businesses in Fintech and some power distribution companies. Particularly successful is his London-based asset, Liquid Telecom—a fibre optic/satellite service company. The privately held telecom company is currently Africa’s leading satellite and fibre optic company.

Masiyiwa also extended his interests to the U.S. He has the majority shares in Seldon Technologies, the manufacturers of nanofiber carbon product in Vermont. He is partners with John Stanton, an influential telecom entrepreneur, in a venture named Trilogy International Partners. This business birthed “2 Degrees” a mobile operator in New Zealand.

Econet’s holdings include financial services, renewable energy, enterprise networks, and the media.

Other Trials:

Masiyiwa’s second round of personal and business attacks from the government were significant events in his personal and entrepreneurial journey.

In the early months of 2002, Daily News, the only independent newspaper with the largest reader base in Zimbabwe, was heading towards bankruptcy. In a timely manner, Masiyiwa stepped in and invested in the newspaper. Consequently, he became one of the top shareholders in Associate Newspapers of Zimbabwe.

In what was an obvious attack, the paper was shut down by the government on the basis of illegal operations.

Strive Masiyiwa had no choice but to sell his shares and move on. Daily News remained closed until 2011.

The attacks continued.

In 2014, the government sanctioned the arrest of Econet Wireless executives and directors. These people were sent to a maximum security prison in chains like hardened criminals. Fortunately, Strive was in Singapore to secure foreign investments, so the government could not get to him. Going to South Africa was ill-advised at this time as his government’s reach extended there. Whilst his people suffered unjustly, his hard-won company was on the verge of crumbling. There was no leadership, everyone was in a panic and the government was on a manhunt.

A week later, there was a hearing but it did not go in their favour. Despite the lack of concrete evidence, they were sent back to prison. Nevertheless, Masiyiwa and his team did not stop pushing for their release.

Thankfully, they were released about nine days later and (to everyone’s surprise) they all went back to work immediately.

In spite of it all, nothing could stop Masiyiwa and his team’s progress. They continued working hard for themselves, for the people of Zimbabwe and for Africa.

Strive Masiyiwa and Humanity

Time and time again, Masiyiwa has demonstrated his compassion for humanity and his passion for human development. He is devoted to philanthropy as a means of uplifting others. He is well-known for his initiatives that aim towards making life easier, financially. With his personal wealth, he built a remarkable educational support program for African orphans. Now, over 40 thousand children have benefited from the Masiyiwa family foundation.

Alongside Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, Masiyiwa is a member of the Giving Pledge initiative. Furthermore, he and his wife, Tsitsi, created a foundation, Higherlife, for orphaned children in Burundi, South Africa, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe.

Masiyiwa became the co-chairperson of Grow Africa in 2013; an African agricultural investment forum which has helped raise $15 Billion for agricultural projects in Africa. He is also the chairman of another agricultural support program (AGRA) for small-scale farmers in Africa.

Health programs and anti-campaigns against Ebola, Cervical Cancer, and HIV/AIDS prevention have had Masiyiwa’s valuable support. A passionate environmentalist, he teamed up with Sir Richard Branson to set up Carbon War room.
