Are you a website’s owner? There are hundreds of new sites started every day, and it’s time to equip your site and make it look unique and more appealing. However good your site’s content might be but it also needs to make some visual impact to the reader. A first time visitor shouldn’t think that he has entered a wrong place even before your site gets loaded completely.
So here are some tips to make your site visually appealing and inviting to read. Your site need not be making flash player wonders or filled with animations that flow all through the site to convince your reader but just be simple, straight and balanced so that it gives a warm welcome to a new bound visitor.
Make a professional logo design for your site. It would help you in building a brand reputation and also helps you in enhancing your site’s social presence. In most of the sites logo would be the first thing to load so a new reader would begin to judge your site as soon as your logo gets loaded. So making it professional and also something that connects with your blog’s niche helps you build audience. If you are not good at creating logos, you can even hire Fiverr workers and freelancers to get your job done.
• Theme – Never make a mistake over here:
Theme is a place where every site builder must concentrate much on. Be clear on how your theme must be. Many people avoid entering dark themed sites. Make sure that your site’s theme creates no pain to your visitor’s eye. Analyze what sort of visitors visits your site and create a theme to meet their needs. His comfort in staying at your site is much dependent on your site’s theme.
• Font – Size and color:
Create balance between the font color and your site’s theme color. Size is the best way to differentiate the numerous contents that are displayed in your site. Make sure that you use perfect sizes at perfect places and also check if it’s easy to read. I have some worst experiences of copying the sites content to a note pad to enlarge their size and check what they have written. Your font color must create no harm to your visitor in his reading.
• Organize Your Site:
Your site’s visitor must easily get what he is looking for and you need to organize your site well for this need. Align all your menus and your menu bar must contain all default classic pages (i.e, home, about, contact etc.,). Make it easy to visit your older posts. Categorize all your posts and make the visitor easily explore his category of interest. A visitor can get the maximum out of the blog only when the site is well organized.
Try to show the maximum in every page of your site. Don’t make your visitor wander through places. Try sharing all similar sorts of stories with your visitor. Give him loops and links that could take him to all related places at your site. Try displaying him the maximum you have.
• Adverts – Never Dump Your site:
Don’t dump your site with a lot of Ads. This would create an ill feeling on your site. Place your Ads wisely. Select what Ads to be displayed. Don’t make a lot of pop up Ads and Ads that take you to a new tab. Popup menus might also slow down your site. Displaying Ads of your blog’s niche would prevent your Ad spots from looking odd. Target your visitors and place your Ads.
• Don’t Forget Your Mobile Phone Visitors:
If possible create a separate look for your visitors who enter in your site via mobile phones. Every one can’t afford high speed internet using a mobile phone, so a separate simpler version of your site especially for the people who use mobile phones to enter in your site can be provided. There are many default themes and options available all over the net using which you can create a mobile version for your site. DeepFocus, Avada, iPhonelike are some of the famous wordpress mobile phone themes.
These are just basic initial steps. You can work much more on every key point and enhance your website to meet the increasing internet’s demand. You need to promote your site both technically and visually to mark your presence over here. Hope the tips were useful.
