THINK OF YOUR WEBSITE AS A PERSON – YOU TO BE EXACT. FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE EVERYTHING.
Are you squinting looking at the picture above? There is simply too much going on. Visitors may leave before they even get a chance to find out more about you just because your website design is too distracting. Too many colors – too may different font styles – too much text – too much going on all around!
The written content is what you say. You want it to be intelligent and to the point. If you start rambling on and on people will loose interest.
Imagine the design and color theme of your website as the clothes you wear and your hair. You want them to be neat and clean. Avoid anything wild like rainbow-colored backgrounds and more than two different kinds of font styles, etc.
Accent Colors and Images
Imagine these to be your makeup and accessories – not too much and not too little. Just enough to highlight and accentuate all your beautiful features. Two accent colors and a few well-selected images are usually all you need (except if you are displaying a gallery of images, of course).
Sometimes you just need an outside perspective. It is difficult to convey your message and image to strangers and potential clients if all you are doing is work in your business day and night.
I am happy to evaluate your website at no charge and let you know what can be done to improve both design and search engine visibility in a reasonable amount of time and for a reasonable price.
