The Net is bombarded with different kinds of websites. When you visit from one website to another, you can?t help but compare. In some instances, you do not even have time to compare, involuntarily, you are clicking away from the site. If you wondered what was lacking in those sites that you disregarded, or what was common with those sites you well-liked, well the answer will be just as easy as clicking away. It?s the web design. It catches the initial attention. If it is successful in doing so, then the visitor can prolong the visit. If it doesn?t, in a matter of 5 seconds your prospective client will easily turn away from you.

The key element in achieving a ?marketable? website is planning. Studying what is essential and applying it is indispensable. Working with a power team composed of a skilled web designer and writer is a good initial step. During the planning stage tell them what you envision your website to be then they will advise you on how you as a team will accomplish it. In connection with design, layout, color, logo and the design per se should be taken into consideration. It must complement to the personality of the company or business. Same with the design, the content?s pictures, text and information must be needed by the design and vice versa. Bear in mind that these elements must work as a team. They must not drag the other element down because it also entails the downfall of the whole.

For a web design to be amazing it has to be eye-catching, functional and practical. Flashy websites are useless if they don?t have the information that the visitors want. Visitors will also be easily bored by lousy content. Another instance is when pictures, graphics, and flashy texts are put altogether in a page which results to an overwhelming eyesore! To be guided, the website must exude total equilibrium, so to speak. A balance between all its elements, that way, no overlapping and no lacking will exist and the full advantage will fall to all parties involved.

As a web principle, web sites are intended to be read, if not the message won?t get through. Another, we should maintain the website?s attractive, neat and engrossing environment but it doesn?t mean to say that it should be boring! There are many tools available to create flashing and twirling effects. Whistles and bells are also favorable options. However, overdoing it makes it hard for the visitors to read and to follow. Refinement and sensibility as well as simplicity are still the best standards of web design!
