Conventions are
our friends!
Web Site Conventions
 They are useful. Conventions onlybecome conventions if they work.
 Designers are reluctant to use conventions, they like to reinvent the
wheel.
 Innovate when you KNOW you have a better idea, use conventions
when you don’t.
Web Site Convention
Examples
 Navigation appearing along the top or running down the left side of
the page
 Logo located in the upper left corner
 Hyperlinks are underlined
Things to Avoid
 Splash or Intro Pages
 Slow loading pages
 Large blocks of text on the main site pages
 White text on color background
 Too much Flash and Music
 Incomplete or outdated pages

SBDC Digital Bootcamp Website Review

 It tells us what’s inside
 It instructs us how to use the site
 Consistent Navigation allows users to adapt easily and predict with
confidence the location of information
Landing Pages
Landing pages, or “lead-capture pages,”
are used to convert visitors into leads
by completing a transactionor by collecting contact information from them via
a
Call-To-Action.
Landing Page Elements

SBDC Digital Bootcamp Website Review

website visitor to take.
• It doesn't matter if your landing page objective is increasing sales,
generating email leads or developing customer relationships, we all want
more conversions!

distances
Kneel Before Google
 Your content should be “Search Engine Friendly” Zero-Click
Searches
 Content should contain keywords that best describe your
products and/or services
 Use hyperlinks within your content to linkto other pages on
your site
Stock Photography
 Google Images is NOT a source of photos for your web site
 Royalty Free:Pay fee for variety of usage
 Rights Managed: Pay fee for very specific, one-time usage.
 ShutterStock, AdobeStock, iStock offer affordable plans for
Royalty Free Stock Images.

Editor's Notes

  1. There are two kinds of noise: Busy-ness, everything on the page is clamoring for attention. Background noise. Your web pages are like being at a cocktail party, no one source of noise is loud enough to be heard
  2. Without being taught, we all learn to read newspapers, not the words, the conventions: Large type is usually the headline, text underneath a photo is a caption.
  3. Web design conventions are a set of rules that help visitors “feel at home” on your site even if it’s the first time they visit it. Most websites adhere to these rules and yours should to.
  4. Make sure that you invest the time to properly plan the information architecture of your site
  5. Understanding who our target audience is and where they spend their time, you can build an organic presence by focusing on specific platforms.
  6. The home page is reserved for high-priority tasks and should divide your audience and send them to their particular area of interest.
  7. We are always looking for the next thing to click. Don’t force users to think about something that should be obvious
  8. Discuss situation client experienced using photos lifted off the web.
  9. One of the most common mistakes that businesses make is focusing too much on the Form or Style and less time on the Function or Substance of their web site.
  10. With CMS, you can add calendars, online forms and blogs
