Do you need some help with the layout of your website?
There’s so many ways to design websites nowadays that it can get confusing on what to do and what not to do. The most important thing to remember is that the goal of having your website in the first place is to get your customers the information they need efficiently and effectively. Yes, you should express your brand, but it should not be a scavenger hunt for the visitor that is coming to your webpage. Here are some easy tips to apply when you are designing your website:
Keep it simple
There is a lot of truth in the saying “the simpler, the better” when it comes to websites. There should be some eye catching details for your call to actions, but that shouldn’t take place throughout the entire site in a jumbled mess. Your clients need a clean and professional look to find the information they need quickly.
Form a pattern
There is a strategic way to guide your visitor’s eyes where you want them to go on your website. You simply have to form a visual path for them to follow. For instance, the most important information should be displayed clearly at the top. Make it easy for the visitor to know what they need to read by emphasizing text or adding graphics in an organized fashion.
Stay consistent with brand
Don’t confuse your reader by having different colors, font families, webpage layouts and outdated information throughout the site. If you already have your brand established, make sure it is obvious on every page of your website and that everything goes with each other. However, if you are still in the process of discovering your brand, keep it simple and ask us for some guidance!
