Every website designer aims to design an attractive, easy to approach and operational website that can persuade visitors to take some action. And this is certainly not a child’s play! It requires excellent use of graphic visuals, user-friendly and spontaneous navigation, persuasive content, organized site map and much more. Here is a list of few rules of thumb, followed by most of the successful companies of web design India.
The primary motive of any website is to provide valuable information. It should be irrespective of the fact whether the website is into selling products or providing any service. Don’t forget people make use of internet as an information source. Hence, your website must be a good source of information for the visitors otherwise it is possible that a visitor might switch to another site that serves them as per their requirement. In addition to this, website content should also be free of spelling and grammatical errors as this will have an adverse impact on website’s integrity.
Designers must always remember the Three-Click rule-of-thumb! As per this rule, a visitor gives not more than 3 trials to a webpage! This can simply be put as- if one cannot get at the required information within three clicks, they will certainly move out to another site. Thus, the navigation of the site should be as simple as possible so as to retain customers.
Multiple Web Browsers Compatibility
An ideal website design must be compatible enough to operate in the most popularly used web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Netscape and Mozilla Firefox at a minimum. Therefore, it is recommended that a good designer should test the final website by running it in different browsers to check the website’s compatibility on different platforms.
If you want visitors to bookmark your website pages so as to revisit again, then your website design should be free of any frames that make bookmarking process difficult.
A good designer keeps on testing the set links on a regular basis say periodically to make sure they are still working and valid. A broken link sways the visitor’s mood off the site, faster than anything. One can also take help of online services that checks your links functionality time to time without charging a penny.
Colors, Images and other Visuals
There is another rule of thumb that first time visitors are somewhat impatient and will leave your site if a webpage takes longer than 10 seconds to load. So always use optimum size of images and other visuals to be as small as possible without disturbing its resolution quality. In addition to this, define the links in color different to that of its background so as to highlight them for website’s easy navigation.
Hence, an ideal blend of sound practical judgment and proper planning is what a good web design requires. There is no rocket science involved in it! Your success just depends on your site’s attractiveness and user-friendliness and above all, serving the purpose and providing valuable information for which user visited your site.
