6 Little Things That Can Make Or Break Your Website
Have you ever heard about the saying: “The devil is in the details”?
I bet you did.
When it comes to building a website, this quote still remain true. It can take weeks to finish, cost a fortune, and there are still at least half a dozen considerations that we didn’t fully think through before work gets started. And then, at the end of the day it’s those smallest things that make or break our website.
Even though every designer might have their different plans, there are items that they should (and shouldn’t) be doing during their website design process.
So today I want to go over 6 things you need to keep an eyes on if you don’t want to send your visitors to your competitors’ sites. Be vigilant!
Make proper use of white space
Just because there is white space doesn’t mean you have to cram a bunch of shit in there
Do you like being yelled? No one does! That’s actually a “stuff all you can” website does to visitors! You don’t want to clutter up your website to the point that scares everyone away, do you? Visitors will be very overwhelmed if you cover every inch of your site with haphazard content. So, please leave your site some space to breath!
Also, 2017 is about minimalism and simplicity. It’s a must to incorporating white space into your website for a cleaner look overall and helping visitors to recognize what the most important information you want them to know is.
Bad photos can kill your website
A picture is worth a thousand words. They can help you attract visitors, grab their interest and keep them stay on your website.
Then, imagine if the first thing potential visitors see when they reach your site is unprofessional photos, they’re probably going to click back button without regret. Okay, you might be an expert in your field, but if your photography doesn’t reflect that, no one will stick around long enough to find out.
Don’t spend thousands of dollars on a website design and then ruin it with photos that don’t match your brand, or poor quality photos.
Do not complicate your website’s navigation
Imagine what will happen if you walk for hours in the forest without a compass or a map? It feel daunting, doesn’t it? The same can be said as a website with a confusing navigation.
