A key aspect to making your visitors happy is insuring they go where they need to go, quickly and efficiently.

    Choosing colour- Have a clear color scheme based on the theme of your website. Choose carefully a set of colors you use for your background, text, border, tables and cells etc.The color scheme expresses the characters of your website and makes it unique and attractive.

one of the most important aspects you need to keep in mind at all times when choosing a website design firm or designing the website yourself. It is very important to remember that most of your visitors haven’t spoken to you yet and your site will be the first impression they have of your company. If your website design lacks professionalism and/or does not reflect that of a well established company, your new prospect can easily loose confidence.

Try and avoid run of the mill things like page counters, java text scrolling, flashing images, GIF images, signs which say “we are not ready.” Or, too many illustrations or animations, black grounds or fade ins.

  • Create a design which coveys in a stylish way what it has to. Instead of using downloaded illustrations use original ones.
  • Avoid things like heavy files or graphics. These will slow down your pages. GIF is better than JPEG files.
  • Think of the target audience and subject being addressed when designing. The overall effect should be that of exclusivity.
