2. Do keep the website design simple and user friendly. Creating the website’s designs can be quite exciting especially those who love to play with color. But always remember that a website should be functional and should tell the story of the company.
Some websites have simple designs but its interfaces can be complicated. Users normally look at either on the top, left, or right sides of the website, hence the categories are normally found in these directions.
But being simple does not mean it should be bare. Don’t be afraid to discuss your ideas with the builder, but manage your expectations.
3. Do keep your text simple. In creating a website, putting content is very important. But putting content should not be complicated. Always remember to write in simple words and sentences for your audience to understand.
There are instances that websites are filled with words not used by common people. While you are proud of knowing the meaning of so many complicated words, always remember that not everyone uses them. Even those in marketing try to use lay terms, so don’t go overboard with it. Always remember to keep focus on what’s important and not to be flowery with words.
4. Don’t go overboard with words. This is a reminder from rule number 3. No one wants to have a cluttered website, so make sure you edit words properly. You may have so many ideas but it’s very important to edit yourself and to keep it formal to your audience.
Also, make sure to choose the right fonts and sizes for your website so readers can see them clearly.
5. Don’t make it hard for your readers to look for information. One of the common problems for readers is that it takes them a lot of time to look for information. Remember, your reader or audience only had a short time to check out the website so make it easy for them to access the information.
6. Don’t place advertisement boxes just anywhere. Websites need money to run properly, that’s why there are advertisements. But please place them in the right areas to avoid unnecessary problems. Readers are not pleased when they are reading an article and suddenly an ad pops up, blocking what they’re supposed to be reading. You do not want your reader to leave the site quickly.
These tips are just some of the ways that can help a person in making a website. Always remember: know the purpose and reason and you can start building it from there.
