Web Designing – Tips To Make An Effective One

By Greg Pierce

“The habits of consumers on the web are not that different from that of those patronizing a physical store. Instead of picking up something that catches their attention or one which resembles the thing they are looking for, the web user clicks on it. If the page doesn’t meet their expectation, instead of putting the object down, they hit the back button and continue their search.

If you’re an online businessman, this is something you would like to avoid. And in doing so, you have to remember a few basic tips for creating a website with design and content that are likely to make your site visitors buy something instead of hit the back button and search somewhere else.

a. Web users welcome quality content and are prepared to compromise it with the site’s design. This is why web sites that don’t have a good design but have high-quality content have the most hits.

b. Web users don’t read the contents of a page but just scan through them. They would just search for fixed points that would guide them through the page.

c. These website users are human beings, which means that they are visual beings. They are looking for a quick satisfaction and if a website does not satisfy them, then the one who made the site didn’t do the job correctly. When navigating through the site, users don’t use a lot of thinking and other mental processing.

d. Web users don’t look for the fastest way to find the needed information. They also don’t check a web page in a linear fashion or following a sequence. If they find one that looks rational, then there’s a great possibility that the user will click it.

e. These users actually don’t use psychic processes or intuition or perhaps read all the content. If they see something that they think might work, then they would stay with it even if they have not understood it yet.

f. Web users want control in their fingertips. Windows popping up unexpectedly are out. They want to be able to return to the site they have been before by hitting the “”back”" button. Links shouldn’t open in a new browser window because the “”back”" button doesn’t apply.

g. These users want to have a web page that is easy to understand and user friendly. They don’t want sites that they need to figure out in order to navigate around it. If your site is hard to navigate then they would just close it and move on to the next one. They don’t want to think deeply when they navigate a site.

h. If you’re going to offer the users a type of service or implement, keep the requirements to a minimum. Don’t require them to fill out long forms for an account they may never use later. Let the users explore without coercing them to share private information.

If you are currently looking for web design companies in St Louis, your choices are plenty. Find the best St Louis web site design company but be patient when examining your options. You have to know what you want before deciding which company you need.
