Building a new website can be difficult, especially if it’s something that you’ve never done before. There are numerous things to think about, including web design, content structures, hosting, and branding.
Unfortunately, effective web design is one of the things that people often get wrong. Without a professional design, you will find it hard to create a successful website that people want to engage with.
To help you get started, I decided to put together a short article outlining some of my top web design tips for complete beginners. These include:
- Use Professional Quality Pictures
Unfortunately, a lot of people make the mistake of using poor-quality images when they’re designing their first website. This is a very bad idea, as it can detract from your overall design, create an unprofessional feel, and generally discourage people from engaging with your site.
Wherever possible, I’d recommend getting professional photos of you, your business and/or your products taken. You can use stock photos if you have to, but these tend to be a little generic and are best avoided if you can.
- Consistency Is The Key
Another thing that a lot of web design beginners do is changing their design throughout their website. Once again, this is a bad idea because it makes it hard to build a strong brand. It can also confuse people when they’re trying to navigate between pages.
