10 Guidelines For Designing A Good Website
In my previous articles, I have looked at some of the facts that you need to consider when you are choosing a web hosting site. In this article, I want to talk about some of the guidelines for designing a good website. Follow me as we are going to look at that together in this article.
Now the guidelines….
#1 Reputable websites
When it comes to designing a good website, you need to take time to examine other reputable websites and see what they are doing better. It is just like the saying that if you want to be successful in any area, you need to have a mentor. So also, if you want to have a good website design, you need to take time to study other reputable websites and emulate what they are doing.
#2 Attractive home page
One of the factors that you need to consider when it comes to building a reputable website is that you need to have an attractive Home page. You need to understand that most of the traffics that are coming to your website will be coming to your Home Page. If your Home page is disorganized, it is unlikely that the visitors will take time to check what you have on other pages.
#3 Appropriate colours
At times, when you have a colour riot website, you are going to blur the eyes of your readers. In order to drive traffic to your website and sustain your readers, you need to make sure that you have a colourful website. You need to ensure that you choose colours that complement your brand. Don’t just use colours that do not add up when you are creating a website.
#4 Necessary information
Also, you need to make sure that all the necessary information that you need to convince your audience to buy your product is placed on your Home Page. Just like I said, most of the readers will not go beyond your Home Page, That is why you need to ensure that your Home Page contains as much meaningful content as possible.
Also, when it comes to the arrangement of contents on your website, you need to divide the content into categories and subcategories. You need to ensure that it is very easy for your users to find what they are looking for. This will ensure that your customers are not distracted. They should be able to locate what they are looking for.
#6 Informative description
Also, when it comes to marketing your products and services, you need to add short and descriptive information about the products and services that you are trying to sell to your target audience. The information must not be too long in order not to bore your audience. Just put enough information that the prospect needs in order to decide whether they needed that product or not.
#7 Easy navigation
There is a need for you to provide easy navigation on your website. You need to divide your product into categories and subcategories. You also need to provide a search box that will allow your prospect to search for products that are not covered in your categories and subcategories. This will allow your readers to quickly locate products and services that they are looking for.
#8 Keep things simple
Also, when you are designing a great website, it is not about how sophisticated your website is, you need to learn to keep things simple. It is not able how colourful a website is, you have to try and much as possible to ensure that the website is useful. Once a website is useful and can provide what users are looking for, you can be sure that they will stick longer on that particular website.
#9 Small and simple graphics
Also, you need to make sure that you are using small and simple graphics. When the images on your website are too big then it will slow down the loading time of your website. Please make sure that you reduce the size of the images. This will allow having a compatible website that will load well across different browsers.
#10 Avoid unnecessary features
Also, when it comes to designing a website, the design of a website is not a moment for you to show that you are skilful in website design, you need to make sure that you only add features and plugins that are needed to perform functions on the website. Please do not add any skills that are not needed for that particular website.
