When it comes to adding structure to your website have you considered the use of photos to organize your site? A big mistake I see with businesses that have a lot to offer, whether information or services, is that they treat their site kind of like an essay instead of a portfolio.
When a new visitor lands on a site they are looking for a memorable experience and they’re asking themselves, “what can you do for me?” If you don’t have those two things covered you run the risk of losing their attention and worst of all, losing sales!
A quick fix, much like I share in today’s Website Critique, is to use photos and graphics to organize your “busy” site.
USE PHOTOS AND A BASIC LAYOUT TO ORGANIZE YOUR WEBSITE
Before jumping into the photo suggestions let’s quickly review the top 5 pages that a website should have. Structuring your website and menu bar according to the following pages will allow for a smooth evolution of your website as your business grows. It will keep things visually organized, create a positive experience for your audience and help you stand out online!
Here’s the basic layout a personal brand website should have (a.k.a website pages):
- Home page
- ‘About Me’ page
- ‘Work With Me’ page
If you’re in the process of starting your website, be sure to watch the replay below to make sure you’re starting off on the right foot. If you want to dive deeper into other things your website should have be sure to explore the website critique/reviews library.
WEBSITE CRITIQUE: HOLISTIC HEALING CENTER
For today’s Website Critique I focused on the power of photos to add structure to a website (especially on the homepage!) A big thank you to Natasha for sharing her business website, Magical Blessings Healing Center!
Natasha’s website has a strong visual vibe and as you’ll see in the replay below, adding photos throughout each section of the homepage will only enhance the vibe and experience. In the Website Critique I also share how someone with a lot to share (either information or services) can simplify even in the most uncommon ways; the menu bar.
Other questions that were answered during today’s Website Wednesday are:
-What is the purpose of Website Wednesday Critiques?
