Why Some Websites Give Me Nightmares

Why Some Websites Give Me Nightmares

Do you have a website? If so, are you confident that it is good? When designing your website ask yourself these things:

Is my site design pretty or ugly?

It is one thing to want to spice things up, but it is easy to go overboard with graphics and create a distracting, hideous site. When talking about design, less can be more. A nice, clean look gives a more professional look. Over doing it can actually hurt your site and appear amateur, despite all the time and effort you put into the shiny graphics.

Does the visitor know who we are or what we do?

Your homepage should let the user know what you do. Not only for search engine reasons, but so potential customers don’t click away from your site because you don’t have a clear definition or identity.

Do I have content?

People must have a reason to visit your site. Having good content that is updated frequently can get some attention for you.

Are people coming back?

Along with maintaining an arsenal of content on your site try to make the visitor a long term one. My last post touches base on this.
Have I taken a really fresh look at my site lately?

This is huge. This is a common scenario: You work on your site for a week. Things are looking better as you go. When it’s done you think you have a masterpiece. You show it to someone else and they think your site’s a mess.

How does this happen?

If this has happened to you then more than likely the reason is because you have isolated yourself. Compared to your initial stages of your site it may look good, but compared to others it may still need a lot of work. If you don’t keep yourself fresh by looking around at other sites and showing your work to others for feedback then you may fall victim to this.

There are just a few things to consider when building a website. There’s more to it, of course, and I will touch on that another day. Until then, safe journey to you, and here’s to having the web working with you.
