7 web design mistakes to avoid

Mar 4th 2015 at 3:05 AM

Whether you are building a new website or you are improving your existing website, make sure you avoid the following 7 mistakes. These mistakes can affect the effectiveness of your website and can prevent you from realizing your business goals and objectives.

  1. Unorganized content-the content on your website plays an important role in driving traffic to your site. How well the content is structured would decide the success or failure of your business. A lot of web designers and developers simply put a block of content on their websites, without giving any proper headings and sub-headings. Give titles, add bullets, or divide the content into small paragraphs. Give proper title for each web page so that the users know where they are.

  2. Outdated content-the biggest mistake would be to put out-of-date, useless, and uninteresting content on your website. No one would like to read such content. If you wish to attract people, add relevant content to your website. Make sure it coincides with the overall theme of your website and is useful for your target audience.

  3. Poor navigation-navigation should be smooth and seamless. Users should be able to find the desired information quickly and easily. Provide textual descriptions to all links. For images, provide alt text. Organize and structure your website navigation in accordance with the overall theme of your website. If users are not able to find what they are looking for in about 2-3 seconds, they would leave your website.

  4. Using too much flash-flash helps add excitement to web design, but it should be used sparingly. Using too much flash can do more harm than any good. Before using flash, remember that not everyone has flash and not everyone has enough bandwidth to support flash.

  5. Adding useless images and graphics-graphics and images should be used keeping in mind the content of your website. If there are too many useless images and graphics, it can slow down the loading speed and can irritate the users. Use the graphics such that the user experience is enhanced.

  6. Poor color scheme-poor color scheme distracts visitors from website content. To make it easy for the website visitors to read through your website content, use appropriate color scheme. Use light colored background for dark colored text. If your site has colored background for colored text, keep the contrast high.

  7. Not adding contact information-it is very important to add your contact information otherwise people would not believe that they are dealing with a real business. Add your postal address and your phone number to convince the visitors that you can be reached and contacted whenever they want to.

To get attractive, functional, and persuasive web design for your Jacksonville business, look for a reliable website design company.
