Business Website Building Do’s and Don’tsWritten by R.L. Young
When it comes to building your own website for business, there are many things to consider when you build your home page to make it look professional, fast loading and easy to navigate. There are many ways and tools to make your site look good, entertaining and fun to watch, but that doesn’t mean you should use them all.
First, using a lot of web graphics, flash, banners and pictures on your home page may make it look fancy or cool; but it will slow down loading time extensively. And lets be real here, most people that look at your web page will leave if it doesn’t load in 3 seconds or less. Because most people are naturally impatient. If they click on a banner or link that leads to your home page, they expect to see it second they click, all of it. Not too many people will sit there and wait for your web graphics, flash intro, banners or 30 pictures to load. Keep in mind that not all visitors computers will load pages as fast as yours may. Set your screen resolution at 800x600, or at least put a notice on your page what resolution your site is best viewed in, because people hate to have to scroll back and forth to read from side to side.
Second, professionalism in way a home web page looks doesn’t usually include distracting backgrounds (use solid soft colors or white), loud and annoying background music or three inch tall caps that try to convince your visitor to buy now or feel like an idiot and lose out for rest of their lives. Fonts should be clear and easy to read and in colors that don’t clash with one another or background. And be careful with text, too much is a turn off, people don’t need to read a book about your service or product. Don’t use colors such as bright red fonts on a blue page, they tend to bleed, blur and make visitor feel like there is something wrong with their eyes.
