Have you tried to create a website but gave up because it just looked silly or there were almost no viewers that you were discouraged? Here, I came up with a few tips on how to create a better website which I used to create my own websites. These tips are not guaranteed to work, but they will make a great improvement on your website.
Tip 1: Have a clean and short URL
Some people just goes crazy and makes their URLs so long that it would not even fit on this page. People usually use this method so that more people can find their websites easily. However, it actually makes things harder for people to find the website. The best way is to make a short and clean URL that people can remember. These can be abbreviations or even the title itself.
Tip 2: Have a clean and interesting background
White text over black background is the thing of the past. The first thing a visitor notices subconsciously after entering a website is the background. The background plays a huge part of everything including websites, presentations, and documents. However, most people do not realize because they notice it subconsciously. You can use a clean and interesting photo as a background or use Photoshop to create one. A background will add a lasting memory of your website to the viewers mind. It is also a good idea to choose a theme for your entire website in the beginning and make sure that the background reflects this theme..
Tip 3: Making your website useful
People mostly visit websites that are helpful to them in some king of way. Nobody likes a website that is not helpful or worse, lies about information. To do this, you must make sure that your website has a purpose. It may be a ‘how to’ website, or a humorous website. If your website doesn’t have a point, there is no point in visiting it either.
Tip 4: Provide a sense of security of the information
People become more relieved about a website if they can contact the creator. It is always a good idea to add your Email or maybe even your phone number. If your company has a lot of staffs, then it can save time to appoint one person to address all emails and phone calls. Also, remember to actually fix the problems or complaints that the contactors tell you about. However, make sure that the solutions suggested is not biased or incorrect.
Tip 5: ADVERTISE!
Advertising is a huge step in getting more viewers into your website. A warning about advertisements: DO NOT PIGGY BACK ON FAMOUS CONTENT. An example of this is Youtube. Some people posts their websites on famous Youtube channels. However, THIS METHOD DOES NOT WORK. It annoys the viewers and gives out the idea that the website is so desperate to piggyback on famous people. If you have some extra funds to spend, there are tons of advertising companies. A famous one is Google Adsense . However, there are lots of advertising agencies out there; make sure you choose the one that is right for you!
So, those are some pointers on making your website better. I hope this guide is helpful, and have a fun journey on the high seas of the internet!
