Common Website Design Mistakes that God Forbid You Shouldn’t be Making Anymore
Behek jana is a common phrase among us Indians, the same happens with the designers when they see a new design lying in the Internet repository safe and sound.
They immediately take heed and copy it on their photoshop like it’s their job or something.
Well, it works just in the way you copy a new status on your TL whenever you see some good quote on a popular page.
Even after copying, there can be several glitches in their design which usually leaves their employer and client both frustrated.
Here I’ll tell you some of these mistakes that you’re unknowingly making as they can hurt your viewership like hell.
That’s where the visualizers chip in as a designer can never do the job alone.
So, first of all, you need to know that this job is of two personals not just the one.
Maybe next time when you are analysing your website’s performance and it appears that people are bouncing off just too easily, you might want to ask your designer first.
- Sliding Protocol
It’s just like making a presentation but here you are impressing not just your clients.
Slides amount up to definitely something when you talk about visual elements, but the content, it becomes quite obvious that you are showing a derogatory attitude towards it.
Hover over to the side bar and the slide will change automatically, looks cool right?
Such kid, much wow!
Ok I get it, you have so many images to talk about your brand, but think for a moment if you use only one background image and rest of them as a thumbnail, don’t they satisfy your purpose altogether?
2.) One Large Background Image
If you do one thing then there are 90% chances that it will backfire. Same happens with the above point as well.
If you use one big background image that also can cause disruptive measures to the content.
You are a naughty little guy and I know that you are thinking about making a video as well, haina?
It saves pretty bucks and looks cool as well, but it also amounts greatly to your website’s loading time and also the content problem to hai hi.
So, when you read that the human brain reacts 60% faster to the visuals instead of texts, it’s probably just a fact and you shouldn’t pay any more heed to it.
3.) Unappealing CTA
(Warning the above image might make you click on the button, but remember, it’s just an image!)
There’s a nice words for the CTA that don’t make you go frenzy unlike the above one i.e. Camouflaged.
Such types of CTAs get ignored just like you get by your crush.
There can be two reasons of it, either the CTA uses non-distinguishable color pattern from other buttons or your content is just too mediocre!
Both ways, you are fucked!
4.) Amateur Site Organization
Or sometime more unrest and creative thinking does the kill, only in the negative way!
You don’t always have to break the stereotypes like always, sometimes an about section placed in a position it was not expected to be can lead to devastating effect on the user experience and navigation.
Don’t put your creativity everywhere, sometimes, it’s nicer being a mediocre!
5.) Poor Content Layout
People read newspaper because they have to in order to grasp their daily knowledge of happening around the world.
Would you want to read it, looking at the content placement?
Obviously no! The message is lost in that somewhat garbage of the text, which is not wrong as newspapers have to put a lot of content in a small number of pages.
But, you don’t have to, right?
According to the best website design agency in India, you need to ensure that your content is in proper layout as without that it can be highly destructive for you to have your visitors hooked up.
There is a reason why people follow up with short and concise content instead of long paragraphs as people like to read in lines instead of bulky texts.
So, next time, go with the pointer method instead of making Kahanis.
