    message while they wait for the text to scroll along The second worst offender is background audio Even if it s well intended it s a distraction If you were trying to read a newspaper would you want somebody poking at your shoulder or whistling Some other distractions to avoid include Pop up windows Even if you really have a good reason for wanting to include a pop up window on your website fight the urge It s an instant distraction Text over background images In the early days of web design this was thought of as a cool feature Now just try actually trying to read the text that s superimposed over your background images See the problem Too many photos images graphics Photos images and graphics are great but too many of them are distracting and take forever to load If a visitor has to wait for five minutes for your images and graphics to load they re not likely to come back again Organize Your Web Content Once you get your content together it s time to get organised Your site isn t going to be effective if it looks like everything was just thrown together with little or no thought The first thing you want is easy navigation Include a way for your visitors to get back to your home page When a user gets confused or lost they like to start over Use links sparingly when trying to market something to someone you don t want to take them away from your content for too long Another golden rule of website design for marketing purposes is to avoid excessive clicking If your home page is a flash page get rid of it A welcome to my site page is great and even cute for your personal website For marketing purposes however you want to get to the substance as soon as possible Each page of your website should have about 400 words of content If you have pages that fall short combine them with other pages Other ways to organize your site include Try limiting page length to roughly 2 screens height An exception to this is articles if you have really long articles you want to include on your site you should break them up into easy to read chunks Use simple backgrounds or contrasting colours If your text and background colour combination hurts your visitor s eyes they re not likely read very much of it Keep your text easy to read Content is great but using the smallest font possible to squeeze more text onto a page isn t beneficial to anybody if they have to use a magnifying glass to read it The general rule is 12 point text size As long as we re on the subject keep bold italics underlining and other text features to a minimum Finally take the time to spell and grammar check your content Even a bunch of small errors can be distracting when someone is reading your website Remember to include tag features such as your company s name address and phone number on every page of your website Your goal is to create a site that has useful content that is easy to access Navigation should be a breeze and distractions such as splashy graphics and scrolling text should be avoided Think about what attracts you to the websites you visit on a regular basis Apply those same elements to your site Happy marketing Author Chris Anderson Toxic Creative Web Design

Optimisation Also tagged Google AdWords Marketing Marketing Strategy Pay Per Click PPC Advertising Search Engine Optimisation SEO The Basics of E Commerce Web Design 20 Jun In short E Commerce Web Design is all about Findability and Usability Despite there being millions of websites on the Internet you ll find that almost all of them can be categorised as a different type or variety of web design There are personal blogs community forums search engines informational pages and dozens more all of which have their own specific design and development principles One of the most common of these varieties is the e commerce website What makes these websites unique is that they encompass nearly every major programming language marketing tactic and design principle in an effort to market and sell a product through the Internet As a result e commerce web design has nearly become its own subject since there are so many factors necessary to ensure a successful execution This post will cover the two primary principles of this area of design and will hopefully leave you with a better idea of what it truly takes to build an excellent e commerce website Find ability The Internet is more than a social medium It s also the largest global marketplace ever created For the first time ever individuals and businesses from all over the world can interact without ever having to travel While this has made trade far more efficient it has also inundated markets with an overwhelming number of businesses As a result you ll almost always face some level of competition regardless of whatever product or service you re offering Because of this the first step to creating a successful e commerce website is to make sure people can actually find it Thankfully there are many ways to increase the visibility of your website The most popular of these methods is search engine marketing which is often abbreviated as just SEM As its name suggests SEM involves making your website easier to find in search engines for given keywords This can be accomplished in two different ways Search engine optimisation and paid search engine listings Before we delve into these methods however it s important to understand that each relies heavily on choosing the right keywords after all when a person is looking for whatever you re offering they usually type in specific keywords or phrases into a search engine As a result before utilising either or both of the aforementioned methods make sure your keywords are not only relevant to the content of your website but also aren t so broad that you ll face an impossible level of competition In the short run paid listings are the easiest and most effective way to get visibility in a search engine As its name suggests you pay a search engine to list your website in the ads section of the results page for a certain keyword After choosing a keywords or key phrase you ll then have the option of selecting how much you want to pay the search engine for one click on your link once it s listed However this means that your website s rank visibility and longevity will depend entirely on how much you re able to spend If another website similar to yours is willing to pay more per click and has a larger daily budget they ll be visible and therefore receive more traffic For long term results search engine optimisation often abbreviated as SEO is the best way to go Instead of having to pay to be listed in a special advertising section SEO makes it so that Google naturally ranks your website based on numerous factors found both on and off your website Effective on site SEO involves incorporating page relevant keywords into each page s file name Title and Keyword Meta tags and of course written content Also we need to keep your code and site structure organised and accessible Off site SEO is also important and comes mainly in the form of backlinks which are links posted elsewhere that lead to different parts of your website Whenever a person posts a link to your website somewhere else Google depending on the authority of the website that the link was posted on tends to view that as an up vote One of the best ways to get people to do this is to maintain a frequently updated blog covering various subjects relating to your products that people will find interesting enough to share with others through links There s a lot more to keyword research paid listings SEO and SEM but the aforementioned practices cover the most fundamental and necessary principles of findability Alternatives to SEM include being listed in vendor and business directories buying advertising space on other websites and much more Usability Getting someone to find your website is only half the battle The other half is getting them to stay and make a purchase While elements such as copywriting pricing strategy and the product itself all play major roles in this usability the practice of making sure that your website is easy to use and free of complications is arguably the most important factor of successful e commerce web design Although every component of your website should be usable focus on design and layout first Make sure that your layout is simple Don t have too many columns stick to a pleasing colour pallet and keep all of your graphics and designs clean and professional Layout is also important when it comes to marketing practices Try to keep the most important parts of each page above the fold which is the area visible when you first arrive at the page While the size of this varies between monitors and their respective resolutions try to keep the area above the fold approximately 860 pixels in height Another important part of usability is navigation Try not to depend too heavily on drop down bars and make sure every major section of your website is clearly visible on the navigation bar Whenever you re in a certain section the navigation bar should reflect it For example if you find yourself on the About Us page the About Us option on the navigation bar should look visibly different from the other options Steve Krug a renowned authority in web usability and author of Don t Make Me Think suggests that the chosen navigation option should look different in at least two ways Navigation should also come in the form of search boxes which are still widely used and even favoured by many users A potential customer might know exactly what they re looking for the moment they come to your website and will usually navigate to the search box as a result The search box should always be in the header of each page have a search button directly to the right of the text area and of course be functional Nothing frustrates a user more than a dysfunctional on site search tool Remember the goal of usable web design is to get the user to stay and many will leave the moment they become frustrated or confused The header of your website should also be unchanging between pages At a bare minimum it should include your website s logo navigation bar search box and most importantly the shopping cart While these features will vary depending on the complexity of your website a good rule of thumb is to make sure that everything the customer would ever need can be found somewhere in the header of each page The other half to usability involves how customers view choose manage and purchase products With online shopping cart abandonment rates reaching nearly 60 for most e commerce websites making the browsing and ordering processes as easy streamlined and hassle free as possible should be a top priority Although there are many ways this can be done the easiest ways to do so are ensuring your pages load fast making sure factors such as price and availability are clearly displayed and keeping the cart management and transaction processes as streamlined and simple as possible One of the best ways to ensure the latter is to have your shopping cart system remember past customer s payment details Functions like this not only make transactions easy but they can also add a whole new level of personalisation to the shopping experience which is something that many customers look very highly upon Like with the previous section covering find ability this section was only a small glimpse into the vast world of usability However among all of the jargon and seemingly complex design principles always remember the number one rule of usability Don t make the customer think If you keep this in mind you ll find that ensuring a positive user experience isn t too difficult Findability vs Usability Which is More Important Many will argue that find ability is the more important of the two but this is often shot down by arguing the importance of keeping the user on the website after all a website is useless if it isn t functional On the other hand there are others who will argue the opposite and say that a website is equally useless if it cannot be found While both have good points they re both half correct Findability and usability are equally important components of proper e commerce web design When it comes to prioritising however focus on usability before anything else since you can always market yourself later on Author Chris Anderson Toxic Creative RESULT DRIVEN DESIGN MARKETING We re based in Northampton and are experts in all aspects of graphic design

Kettering Northamptonshire based creative photographer was certainly an unforgettable experience To create a brand and website that reflected my personality and complement my imagery required the
