Thousands of websites are developed and released every single day. So, in order to make your website stand out, follow these simple steps.
1. Proper Design
Carefully plan and create every single page of your website in a way that users find it easy to navigate through.
The goal here is to make the pages or content that you focus to be readily available to the visitors.
2. Responsive website
Your potentials customers will be accessing your website using different devices ranging from smartphones to tablets. If your website isn’t adaptable to different devices, your potential customers might end up leaving your website.
So, take the following steps to ensure that your website is mobile friendly.
- Set up viewport
- Use media queries
Colours influence the way a person interacts with your website. For example, the colour red increases the heart rate and creates a sense of emergency.
Choose a colour depending on the actions to be taken.
Get out of your comfort zone and experiment with different fonts other than Helvetica. Take special care to ensure that the fonts are readable and avoid using more than two fonts at a time.
5. Unique icons
Instead of using the icon set being used by everyone else out there, try something different; modify the icons in a way that they stand out.
6. Avoid stock images
You might have come across images that are widely being used in different websites. The first thought that crosses anyone’s mind after seeing such a picture is that I’ve seen it before, which is kind of a letdown.
Instead of doing this hire a professional photographer, this not only makes your images stand out but also helps establish a brand image.
7. White space
Use enough space between the elements to make it readable and makes it easier to find the important elements.
To make your content readable after having enough whitespace and proper font, use the right amount of contrast. For example, use light fonts on a dark background and use dark fonts on a light background.
Failure in doing so will make your content unreadable. This is not something you would want after spending hours on creating unique content.
9. Improve PageSpeed
Users skip your page and go to a different website if your page takes longer to load. Research shows that even a small delay has a great impact on user retention.
The steps that you can take to improve pagespeed are
- Compress images
- Minify CSS
- Minify Html
- Reduce the number of redirects
- Enable browser caching
- Place external scripts just above the closing body tag
After you’ve done with all of this, perform some marketing activities to make your website visible in front of your potential customers.
