  • 12. 30 seconds to make an impression Psychology of colours  “Are you stimulating emotions while marketing with your business logo, stationary, business cards, brochures, signs and with your website? If you know it or not, colors speak very loud to our subconscious and have a positive or negative reaction within 90 seconds. On the web you have less that 30 seconds to make a good first impression. Are you using the silent language of color to impress, motivate, divert and persuade your prospects to buy from you?”  My website colour scheme is orange and blue. ORANGE suggests pleasure, cool, excitement, cheer,endurance, strength and ambition.  BLUE suggests security, authority, faithful ness and dignity  What about yours?
