Written by Dan J. Fry

"Oh, my eyes, my eyes! What an eye sore. Quick, click away! Click away!"

Suddenly I wake up in a cold sweat. What happened. Oh, then I realize: it was just a nightmare.

O.k., I'm not crazy, and no I haven't had this dream before. But think about this: what would you do if you came to a site littered with either tons of different colors, loud pinks, purples, greens and reds mixed incoherently, or more animations and graphics thanrepparttar rods and cones of your inner eye can possibly absorb? If your like me I simply go "click, bye-bye".

Our visual stimulus is ever more so important onrepparttar 116901 web than almost anywhere else. The internet is most definitely about information. But, that information is shown graphically. So, if you want to keep people at your site, first appeal to their visual stimulus.

(1) Colors and Their Effect: I prefer blue and white. In general blue seems to elicit a sense of trust and white a sense of purity. Gold, onrepparttar 116903 other hand isrepparttar 116904 color of wealth and prosperity, something we are all working towards. So, with respect to general internet marketing, these colors tend to workrepparttar 116905 best. They are easy onrepparttar 116906 eyes and don't strike up a sense of danger, such as withrepparttar 116907 color red. Of course,repparttar 116908 colors also depend on purpose of your site. If selling baby items, pink, which represents femininity, and baby blue, representing weakness may work quite well. It depends in part on site content. A high tech site selling electronic components may do better with greys, silvers, and black.
