There are lots of ways to improve web design. Here are some simple tips for you to share:

Tip 1: Fast Speed

Not everyone has ADSL 2 Plus or faster internet connection. Lots of people still use dial-up modems to access internet. Please take off any fancy redundant images or plugins and quicken your web pages’ download speed. People will leave your website if it takes them over 10 seconds to open. Probably they won’t visit again. So, start checking your website assets and evaluating the loading speed of your website. If you don’t know how to do that, learn it or leave to web design professionals.

For the visual aspect, there are a lot we can do in the web design.

  • Choose the colors carefully, like the safe combination – black text on white background.
  • Underline the links.
  • Use headings and subheadings.
  • Make the headers of the same importance in the hierarchy look identical.
  • Paragraph the text with roughly 4 sentences in each paragraph.
  • Use white space.

For the content of the texts, state your message in a manner of clearness and easy understanding. Short sentences and words may help.

Tip 3: Consistent Layout

The style of layout should be the same throughout your websites. The different layouts in the different web pages will confuse the reader: “Am I visiting the same website?”

Tip 4: Easy Navigation

  • Include a homepage link in your navigation bar that can guide visitors back to the homepage wherever they want.

Tip 5: Browser Compatability

So many web browsers, is your website READY for them?

There are many people who use Firefox, Opera other than Internet Explorer. Use the program code carefully (Web design standard: W3C compliance) while you are doing your web design work. Make sure your website runs properly on the most of the web browsers. Don’t exclude any of your web readers just because they favor certain web browser.

Tip 6: Provide options

If you really want to add music to your website, give the readers choice to turn the music on or off. They don’t like to be forced to listen when open your website. Please leave out pop up windows or plugins. You just make us no choice, and we hate that!

Definitely there are plenty ways to improve your web design.
