Getting Professional with Your Web Site - The Design
(Page 2 of 5 )
Professionalizing your site begins in page design. You want your pages to be attractive and eye-catching, but make sure not to overdo the visual elements. Itís important to keep a cohesive look throughout your site. Donít use a lot of different backgrounds for every page; instead, stick with just one. You should also try to maintain the same simple layout for every page, with the same colors and text design throughout.
Thereís no need to wow your visitors with a great deal of flashing text or dancing pictures. Images and bold, colorful text often brighten the look of pages, but you donít want to take it too far. After all, you donít want to visually assault those who come to check out your site.
Keep all of your siteís pages simple and fairly uncluttered. For the most part, you want traffic to take in the contents of an entire page with a quick glance -- because in many cases, thatís all youíre going to get. Most Internet users fly through different pages, sparing only a second to size up a single site. You want to make sure they take in the important information right away. Make your pages simple in design and easy on the eyes and you canít go wrong.
Consistency is a great way to achieve a professional look for your site. Even when the content varies, keep the same look for each page and keep the design elements to a minimum.
