If you consider yourself to be a creative individual, or you simply want to express your passion for a certain subject, then creating a website could be for you. Many new websites enter the internet every day, and that is hardly likely to change anytime soon.
Unfortunately, many of these places have a poor concept of just how their domain should be designed, and this hurts their popularity and visitor count. If you don’t want to meet the same fate, there are certain things you can do in order to make your website attractive and easy to navigate. What can you lose by trying?
1. Don’t have music playing, either in mp3 or midi form, on the website. People are not fond of having music suddenly blast from their speakers, and they are likely to hit the back button before they even get a chance to check out anything. You might think you’re sharing your favorite song with people, but odds are they won’t appreciate it. If you must have a music player, make sure it is either manually activated or it can be turned off by the visitor. This is very important to keep in mind.
2. Never use a tiny font to enhance your text. If you visited a website and the font was too tiny for comfort, would you stick around? The answer would likely be no. Therefore, make sure any text is of a size that most people would be able to read. You will also want to refrain from using fancy fonts that have the potential to create a problem; this is just as bad as tiny fonts, because it can be just as difficult to make out. If you aren’t sure, ask a friend or someone you know to take a look at the website before it goes “live.” They can give you feedback.
3. Don’t flood the pages with animated pictures. This is a sure fire way to give off an air of unprofessional, a fatal mistake if you plan to put up an online business. Some browsers might also be unable to load the pictures properly, and it may end up taking a long time. Will the visitor have that kind of patience? Would you?
4. Let people know what the website is about right away. If they become confused and are unable to figure out what they are looking at, they will leave.
