    customers know they want a website but have a hard job envisaging how that site should look and perform Others may have a half formed idea in their heads but need to see other examples that may help to make that idea complete a portfolio page could help them to achieve this and more importantly commission you to do it Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Web Design It s Not Always Wise to Follow a Trend This was posted by John Sheridan on June 14th 2011 At the end of every year and the start of a new one there are countless articles to be found speculating on web design trends covering everything from the technical to the aesthetic and it will come as little surprise that some predictions are consistently bang on the money whilst others just don t happen at all One area that did interest me however was that of colour and reading through various blogs and forums I came across numerous discussions as to what colours are expected to be hot and which were not As you d expect opinions were wide ranging with just about every colour combination getting a mention as being the next new thing The issue I have with colour usage predictions when it comes to corporate websites though is that they can really only apply to newer businesses because I suspect most older and longer established businesses that unless going for a totally different look would be loathe to change something that has grown to become an essential part of their corporate identity Take Aviva for example they used to be known as Norwich Union but rebranded a few years ago but whatever else altered within the company itself their corporate colours and logo remain the same consequently they are still recognisable even though the name has changed Building brand awareness relies as much on constant exposure of corporate colours as it does on taglines and logos and done properly consistently and with enough time people should be able to recognise a particular brand by any one of these elements on their own Colour of course is a matter of personal preference but as I said earlier new businesses still in the early stages of building their brands face fewer restrictions than the more established companies where following colour trends could perhaps do them more harm than good Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Web Design Hire a Copywriter or DIY This was posted by John Sheridan on June 9th 2011 The subject of today s post centres on a subject the importance of which is often overlooked ignored or completely dismissed by website owners website copy Many businesses commissioning new websites take the view that hiring a professional copywriter is an unnecessary expense and prefer instead to concentrate their efforts and budgets solely on the website itself There are others who fancy themselves as wordsmiths and compose their own copy and to be fair some of them are more than capable but not many It s not about being able to string a sentence together or using clichéd sales speak and jargon or simply a case of putting some hastily written words on a site and thinking that visitors will be so impressed they will immediately want to do business it doesn t work that way Effective copy should talk to visitors inform them engage and interest them and persuade them to take a desired course of action and copywriters have a better understanding than most of what it takes to do that It s often said that a website has only seconds to capture a visitor s attention and it s the immediate look of the website that has to achieve this but once that task is completed and the visitor has decided to stay and learn more the copy is the next stop and if it isn t up to scratch all that good design work is wasted Good copy is as vital to the success of a website as is the design itself and the two can t be divorced from each other without affecting that success Any business commissioning a new website and even those with existing sites should seriously consider the benefits of using a professional copywriter As I said earlier many businesses see copywriting services as an unnecessary expense and possibly something they ll never change their opinions on which is their choice of course I like to think that the more enlightened see it as an investment Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Should You Display Prices on Your Website This was posted by John Sheridan on June 7th 2011 I had intended to write about a particular web design topic today but after getting into a discussion on the issue of displaying prices on websites it will have to wait until another post When it comes to displaying prices on websites there is divided opinion as to whether it s a good or bad move Those in the yes camp would argue that not displaying prices deters visitors from going any further into a website or making enquiries and then leaving to search for other sites that do show the cost of their products To a point this may be true because we are all well aware of how ecommerce sites work price comparison with a few clicks of the mouse vat and delivery charges added if applicable and pay job done Shoppers don t go into supermarkets and fill their baskets and trolleys and wait to reach the checkout before they know roughly how much the total will be so of course ecommerce sites must display prices or they just wouldn t work Many of those in favour of price displays think it should apply to all websites but for various reasons this wouldn t be practical Obviously not all sites sell physical goods and businesses selling particular services have to be a little

  • Inconsistency in Your Website Copy Could Cost You Dearly | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    or scrolling news panels using a different font makes good sense and is very unlikely to put a reader off providing the page itself isn t too busy Size Different font sizes on or between pages is another example of how a lack of attention to detail can ruin an otherwise good website It s fine to have different font sizes on a page as long as the same theme is applied throughout and the variation in size isn t too extreme House Style Simply put house style is a company s corporate image in all their written material whether it appears online or in hard copy Amongst other things this applies to punctuation preferences font type layout and the format in which dates numbers headings and lists are written It also includes which version of certain words is used For example website This can be written as website or web site neither is spelt incorrectly and either one is acceptable However very often both versions are present on the same site rightly giving the impression that the copy hasn t been proofread UK and US English The use of UK or US English is another source of inconsistency and perhaps the most obvious is the English ise word ending and the US ize version A simple example in UK English specialise In US English specialize Other words spelt differently are colour In US English it s color The choice of whether to use UK or US English is again a matter of preference but as with headings and fonts the format must be consistent and not a mix of both Rearrange Your Window Display It s worth making an effort to check your site and rectify any inconsistencies because not to do so will only convey a lack of

    and both can be altered within minutes enabling mistakes to be rectified quickly So why don t some website owners take more care over the quality of their web copy Do they think the graphics alone are enough to entice a visitor to buy their products or services Is it deemed acceptable that because Internet publishing can be done by just about anyone normal writing disciplines don t apply Unfortunately in many cases the answer to both of these questions is yes The only thing that can tell a visitor what they want to know is well written informative copy Obviously no one is perfect and errors will appear now and again However most visitors will overlook the odd spelling mistake or misuse of a word but won t hang around for long if there are too many To them illegible copy conveys an I don t care attitude so if the website owner can t be bothered then why should they Not all websites have to be graphically amazing Understated can be just as effective as in your face visuals but one thing they all have in common is that they all contain a textual content and the only way that words are truly effective is if they are written so readers can understand what they are trying to say Remember it s the copy that will ultimately be responsible for generating enquiries from interested parties it s up to every website owner to make sure it says the right thing about their business Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends
