Frankly, there’s only one way of making a design effective – you make it user centric and that’s just about it. See, it’s simple; if the users (or the visitors, if you put it that way) don’t like your design, it’s not good. No two ways about it.

  • 2. If the users (or the visitors, if you put it that way) don’t like your design, it’s not good. No two ways about it. Having said that, given below are 5 different things that can help you create a design that, well, may help you strike a chord with the users:  Bestowment  Relevance  Simplicity  User-friendliness  TETO (Your knight in shining armour!)

  • 3. Bestowment  Bestow the control on them who visits your site more than once.  For making them feel that they are at the helm of affairs, avoid pop ups.  Leave alone the visitors, even you want to be able to go back to the page you just visited with a single click or two may be.

  • 4. Relevance  It’s true that the site may be an attempt to make money, but a site with too many ads is a big turn-off, maybe not for you (since you’d be busy counting the monies!), but for the visitors.  It should come as no surprise that they visit your site for content.  Ads are something they tolerate.  Don’t test their patience, unless you don’t mind losing them to a competing site.

  • 5. Simplicity  Keep things simple for all age group of person.  It may sound clichéd, but the moment you make the visitors think, they are likely to make an early exit.  Everything has to be self-explanatory. Call : 1300 760 363 Visit On : http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/
  • 6. User-friendliness Put yourself in the visitors’ shoes. Call : 1300 760 363 Visit On : http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/
  • 7. Right Content At The Right Place  You hire yourself a writer, who let’s say, provides you with some really catchy content for your site.  If the visitors need to scroll down, chances are that many of them won’t. Sad but true.  If your content is above the fold, well, you have already increased the effectiveness of your design. Call : 1300 760 363 Visit On : http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/
  • 8. Limited Number Of Pages  The more the better – that’s something we swear by, but truth be told, excess of everything is bad.  Designing 10 different pages, that’s totally understandable, but think from the users’ perspective.  Make your design more effective.

  • 9. Right Colour Scheme  Use fewer colours unless of course the content or the nature of the business for that matter calls for more.  Play with words, if you may, but don’t play with colours, period.  you need to make your site more colourful, try using different shades of the same colour.

  • 10. TETO  Here’s your answer: what looks like an effective design to you may have its share of problems and issues.  Just don’t do it too late, when you can’t do much and may not be able to make changes, if the need be.  Do it whenever you can, even it means testing the design right in the very beginning.

  • 11. Here’s an example: Call : 1300 760 363 Visit On : http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/
  • 12. Now let’s see what may happen if you test the design when it’s nearing completion: Call : 1300 760 363 Visit On : http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/
  • 13.  It’s also worth mentioning that testing is in fact, an iterative process.  You test your design, find some errors and fix them. How can you be sure that the design is now errorfree? You need to test again.  There may be problems that you might have missed during the first round of testing.  Finding them is equally important.
