Tapping Into The Visual Stimulus Of Your Web Site Visitors

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.

There are a few guidelines that you should adhere to when designing your site, following known research results on colors that elicit certain psychological responses. The bottom line is that it is hard enough to market onrepparttar 116902 internet today, why make it harder by irritating your visitors.

(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.

The most luring programs today are still MLM. They prey onrepparttar 116909 whim that "hey, if I get in on this now I can potentially make a reasonable supplement to my current income". The problem with MLM is that unless you come intorepparttar 116910 program nearrepparttar 116911 top, when it is first released, it is so saturated that both your time and money is burned without a penny made.

Recently, a huge number of MLM programs have surfaced that claim to build you a highly targeted opt-in list of subscribers that will "actually pay you to be on your list".
