Principles of Effective Web Design
Today building a website is a necessity for many businesses but to develop a successful website is not easy.
We with many years of experience working in the field of website design can draw on the seven basic principles that you can apply:
1. Homepage close links, easy to use
A simple home page should be designed table of contents, this table should also be simple and easy to use. Also using words and paragraphs short, easy to understand and am meant to attract readers.
2. Use of terms understandable
Users are not able to track advertising sales if they cannot understand what you’re saying. Use the flowery words to praise the product you offer is very easy, but do not know their intentions will be like?
Please help customers understand these issues in the shortest possible time by using short sentences, concise and keep fixed design for all the related pages.
3. The site is easy to navigate and explore the links
You create and use text links or icons for all the pages so that people can see or read on without having to use the “back” or “forward” of the browser.
Also to remember is to use ALT for all graphics are links on the website. It will replace the graphics appear as graphics option is disabled browser, or when the user presses the button “stop” before the page is fully downloaded.
4. Fast page load speed
Typically computer users are not like computer website designers and visitors cannot see patience if a web page loads slowly. Let’s apply this principle “10 seconds of a visitor = 10 minutes you spend on the site.”
Site should be reasonably good display format of elements such as image, flash and video.
Increase the speed of your web page:
• Reduce the size of graphics on the site
• If you need a large image, then use a small image, click to view large image.
• Reduce the size of the code HTML, CSS, script …
• Reduce the number of files when setting up the web: HTML, CSS, photos …
• Open Google Webmaster Tool to use PageSpeed Insights
5. The contents of the site clear, clean
If you have a valuable content, make it readable. Be divided into important paragraphs, highlight important groups (sentence, word).
Use images, effects where necessary to create summary graphical content. But do not do too much, a few strong points on the site to create attraction.
Managing web page makes it easy to update, edit and replace texts, images intended to provide valuable information. Do good web content.
Harmony style and font in each partition, decentralization of website design bring easy to read, easy to follow and easy to get the information of the viewer.
Also need to use the right colors for web viewing audience.
6. Easy to track web page “sales process”
Need to create favourable conditions for customers to understand the benefits of the products and services on the site and provide customers the most convenient ordering method.
To do good things, first of all you need to answer these questions:
Whether you’ve built a reputation for customer before you ask them to order?
You have to give customers the love and excitement before you invite them to order?
You have to give customers a choice of convenient ordering both online and outside the network?
And whether you have a visitor view all process steps to place an order yet?
7. The site is compatible with web browsers
Please check the layout of the site carefully, and see how it will show in the different browsers (such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera …) and at all levels of resolution (for example 640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024 …).
