Don’t Let Your Website Become Ho-Hum

Posted on December 15, 2015

Stand Out From the Crowd

Have you looked at your website lately? Have you noticed a dip in your website traffic, or in the number of users who click through to other pages, or even more importantly the number that give you their business? For many companies, especially those whose major presence is online, an effective website is one of the biggest keys to success. That means your website has to have the right design in order to stand out from the crowd. You don’t want to have just another website that looks like every other website, especially if it looks like all your competition. So what can you do to stop your website from becoming ho-hum?

Don’t Get Complacent

One of the biggest traps website owners fall into is getting complacent with their web design. Sometimes it’s just easier to add generic features to a site and call it good, rather than seek out what is different and what will actually grab your user’ attention. This can happen with graphics, fonts, images and even content. Make sure you look for ways to stand out from the crowded online field.

Material vs. Flat

There is a lot to be said about which kind design you choose Material Design or Flat Design. There is no right or wrong answer here, because they both offer pros and cons. The key is to weigh your options and choose which works best for you. In addition, it’s important to realize that whichever design format you use you don’t have utilize the entire set of principles that come with these formats. You can actually use them to help create new original design ideas.

Be Careful of Full-Screen Headers

Large full-screen headers are a great way to grab your visitors’ attention and they can help you make a bold statement for your company. However, if they are not done right they can be a big waste of site real estate, especially if it’s just the same as all the other full-screen headers out there. Instead of going with the norm, you should seriously consider reducing the header, which will allow your visitors to know that there is more to be seen below.
