  • Alternative to Web Site Templates and Design Software

     
    Before I discovered the concept of Web site templates, I felt woefully inadequate to build my own site. It was the old "catch-22" where I didn't have the money to pay to have a site built, I needed a site to make the money to have a professional site, and without the knowledge of how to build a site, I had no hope of getting a site. But even templates took some degree of technical knowledge. I could get a reasonably priced site for between $40-$75 dollars generally speaking, but I had to download, mess with it and find a hosting site, domain name, learn FTP, then upload every change....

    Colors are powerful, and create strong feelings. They can also make your web site look professional - or look like a circus.

Many successful sites use dark text on a light background (or vice versa). While light text on a dark background may be easy for some people to read, it's important to use this approach sparingly....
     

    How Does Your Website Measure Up?

     
    Does your website make a good first impression? Is the navigation intuitive? Is the content appropriate for your audience? You've had your website up and running for a while now but you've always had a nagging suspicion that your website is lacking effectiveness and you just can't put your finger on it. You've dabbled with colors, added/removed images re-written the text but it still feels as if everything just isn't working together. Wouldn't it be nice if you had a way to sort things out? Well now you do!...

    Color Scheme for Your Website?

     
    Yes, in a world that is obsessed with makeover madness, even your website needs to follow specific color guidelines when picking out "what it will wear". The colors you use when designing your website tell an awful lot about your business, though you may not know it. I had this problem myself. I loved my website, it was so cool looking. I had a red, black and white color scheme, and it matched all of the material I sent to meeting planners. They were my colors and I fought changing them. That is, until I paid $640....

    Design Your Site For Your Customers

     
    The most important person that you need to please when you design your site is your potential customer. I can not stress that enough. I have clients who have told me "I don't like this design or that one or I like these colours", etc. I want to please my customers so I try to create a design for them that they will be happy with, of course. But my clients don't often think of their site visitors or their own potential customers when they ask me to design their site. Sadly most are thinking primarily of one thing - how to make money from their website....
