We know that having a picture-perfect website is something that many people covet today. If you are selling something on the Internet, or even if you have a real-world store, you want your website to look its best. In most cases, people will pay a graphics designer and a webmaster to create a website that is not only beautiful to behold, but represents their products and services in a way that they think will help boost sales. Unfortunately, sales are based upon traffic. If you don't have traffic, you are simply not going to make as much money as you want to with your website online. One of the best ways to improve your earnings is to get better rankings on the search engines. The best way to accomplish this, in most cases, is to use intelligent website design. In this article, we will show you how to use web design strategies to your advantage, especially when it comes to making money on the web.
Internet marketing is something that can be very lucrative. People that attempt to make money online unfortunately fail most of the time. Even though they have a website that is selling their products and services, they lack the traffic necessary, especially targeted traffic, that will actually be interested in what they have to sell. To get targeted traffic, one of the easiest ways is to rank well on the search engines. If you think about it, when people are searching for something in particular, we will use a specific keyword to help them find what they are looking for. Unfortunately, this is a very difficult task, unless, of course, you understand a couple beneficial website design strategies.
When you create a website, it is best to place your larger graphics below the fold. This means, when your website loads, even if it takes a little while to do so, people will see your website, and the small graphics at the top. This could be your logo for your company, and perhaps a couple graphics representing the products and services that you have for sale. After 5 or 10 seconds, the rest of the graphics will load, and the visitors will not know that they were delayed. This will improve your bounce rate greatly because people will see that your site has loaded and they will begin to look at what you have to offer.
Another tip you can use for site design is to use HTML. Even though most people use WordPress blogs because they are so easy to work with, HTML can load an entire website in a few seconds or less. This will also help reduce your bounce rate, and keep your visitors happy because they will see everything appear the moment after they click on the link. And the faster your site loads, the higher the search engines will place you in the search engine listings.
By using the steps to improve your site loading speed using these simple web design strategies, you can keep people from clicking away, and also, potentially, make more sales from the targeted visitors that find your website due to your improve rankings on the web.
