    11 Steps to Sticky Web Site!


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    An attractive and user-friendly Web site is crucial to attracting prospects and holding their interest. Seems obvious, yet poor design and even more poorly written content clutter the Web.

    The basics of a good web site are simple. Generally, if the purpose of your web site is to convey information, the emphasis should be on clear navigation and engaging text. If however, your purpose is to showcase a portfolio or develop a brand identity, then it will be more appropriate to limit the amount of text, and concentrate on the graphics.

    However you define the purpose of your web site, following a few basic guidelines will keep your web site user-friendly.

    Keep It Simple.

    This is the most important rule of Web site design. Keeping things straightforward from a userís perspective requires some thought and planning.

    If people find it difficult to get into or move around your site, they may not stay for the show. Ditto if you make it difficult for them to contact you or place an order. A little research into what your visitors will be looking for when they click on your Web site will help keep them happy.

    Make Your Links Clear.

    An important part of keeping it simple is making your links clear. If you use icons or pictures for your links, be sure to give them text titles. It may sound boring, but your site visitors donít want to waste their time trying to guess where to go next.

    Also, make sure that your links are easily visible. Donít make your visitors have to scroll across to find them. Typically, links are found across the top of the page, or vertically arranged on the left.

    Use Straightforward Navigation.
