We all admire sites that are loaded with multimedia, graphics and fantastic visuals but your site needs to be different. Visitors are looking for speed and ease when it comes to spending money. To be more successful with a site, it should be kept simple so that people gain exactly what they need from the site. The tips below will make your site the best it can be.
Have your website prominently feature a tagline. The tagline is some statement or motto that indicates the nature of your business. Use clear taglines to help people that visit your page. You only have a few second to get their attention and get them them to look through the whole website.
Include search elements that let visitors search site content. If someone is looking for something on your site, they want to search for a box to help them search. If you don’t have a search box, they’ll just go to the next site. The ideal placement is the upper right hand corner of your page.
Make sure that every page on your website loads as quickly as possible. Not everyone online has a fast connection, and if your website takes too long to load, people will lose interest. It is best to avoid making visitors to your site wait a long time for each page to load so that they do not give up and navigate away from your site.
Pop-up windows are one feature you should avoid. Although you may think they are helpful, many people think they are annoying. It’s likely that many of your visitors can’t even see them due to browser settings, so keep them happy and stick to one window at a time.
Flash is great, but takes ages to load. Once you understand simple web design, you can build a great site. Use the above tips to design a nice, but simple site.
