It seems obvious that you would want
your site to be as clear and easy to
understand as possible and yet,
the sheer number of unclear or
confusing websites is truly amazing.
Here are a few ways that you can ensure that
your site will communicate with your
customers as effectively as possible.
Colors for your website
You want to make sure that your website is easy on the eyes.
This means that the colors that you use and the style and
size of the lettering must all be easy to read.
The last thing you want is for potential customers to click on your site
only to turn away because they were unable to read it.
Remember that a creative font may look great but they can also make
a site look old and unprofessional far more quickly than you may like.
Also make sure that you use different sizes of font to draw
attention to headlines and other important elements
that can help you get your company’s message across quickly.
Images in website
A picture really does say a thousand words. By using images properly you
can end up communicating a lot to your customers without a lot of text that
can drive them away.
A perfect example of this is a company that wants to showcase its portfolio of work.
A larger series of images will help communicate your work and
talents more quickly than smaller images will.
Design of the website
A website also needs a design that uses clear direction.
By minimizing the number of areas where customers can click and
ensuring that the design has a logical flow from one page to the next it can make it
much easier for your customers to look for the information they need.
A frustrating or confusing web design may make them pass you by in favor of
a much more logically designed site.
You want to ensure that your website design uses links and
text phrases as effectively as possible so that you get your site noticed by
as many people as possible. This will give you the best chance of
attracting new clients, something that every business is looking to do.
Good website design should be simple, clear and memorable.
If your site seems confusing, hard to look at for any length of time, or
does not display your work and your products effectively then paying for
website design will simply be money down the drain.
