Everyone always prefers things that are plain and simple. You have maybe noticed this recently in the design world because simple means elegant. If your design looks too cluttered it is a complete turn-off to a lot of people. This doesn’t mean much when you’re not trying to make money, but as soon as you start scaring people away it means you could be losing dollars because you have too much things on your pages.
A website is somewhere people like to go and read great information. They definitely don’t want to be surrounded by useless things that distract them from what they are there for. If you’re like most people there is a good chance you are messing up the design of your site, so maybe it’s good idea if you look at some of the best ways to simplify it. Test these out individually and see what effect they have on the overall success of your site, and that means your bank balance.
When you’re designing specific pages you don’t want to give people too many options to choose from because they won’t choose the one you want in the majority of cases. If you want to lead someone to your sales page it seems crazy to have links going off in a dozen different directions. Lead someone down a clear path they can easily follow and they will end up where you want them. Have too many distractions about the place and they could end up anywhere.
You want to have a clean page, but before you do that you will need to get rid of everything that shouldn’t be there. Think carefully about this because some things that don’t need to be on one page could maybe go on another. You don’t just want to have everything on your site pointing to your product because that will earn you the trust of no-one. If you can’t find a place for something then don’t be scared to say goodbye to it forever.
Have you looked at all the pages on your website and decided all of them are bringing you great value? If they’re not bringing you great value then maybe they don’t need to be there, or they could even be condensed into fewer pages. Everyone would prefer finding all their information on the same page because it makes life easier. How many people do you know that have an ‘about’ page for themselves and their brand? What is wrong with having them on the same page?
When you want something in the face of as many people as possible it needs to be above the fold. This is the part of the website that everyone will see the majority of the time. Take your important things from down below and include them in the most important area of your site. Just because you’re putting more than one thing above the fold doesn’t mean you’re asking someone to perform more than one action. You can have a sales page link, testimonials, and other things that make your site look great.
When you try and use too many colors it just destroys the look you really want. Plain and simple doesn’t mean turning your pages into something that resembles the aftermath of an exploding rainbow. You can choose a few colors at the most and turn them into the ones everyone associates with your website. This will also make it a lot easier on your visitor’s eyes. Another good thing to keep in mind is that a website is better having a light background.

Priority Pixels were fantastic to work with, incredibly personable and a pleasure to commission for the design of our site. I would thoroughly recommend them to any other small business in need of a new site and will be continuing to use them in the future.

Initially I rang enquiring about SEO / ad word marketing only. But I was so impressed with their service and level of professionalism received, that I had my hosting transferred to them as well. I find Priority Pixels informative, proactive and reliable. He lets me know exactly what is going to be done and by when, which is so important to me, so I don't have to waste my time chasing deadlines. Highly recommend.

Priority Pixels have designed and built the Lazy Bones Fitness logo, website and social media platforms and I am one thousand times more impressed than I thought I would be with the end result!
The team at Priority Pixels have, at every stage, gone above and beyond in ensuring I was getting what I wanted on all aspects.

I can’t praise Priority Pixels highly enough and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a professional website. In fact, we have already asked them to start work on redesigning our other website next month! I think that probably says it all!

Superb personal support at an excellent price from Priority Pixels. Constant advice given when discussing content and formats, with a superb resulting website which is very professional, modern and attractive. The site has already brought many new contacts and lots of praise. I cannot recommend this company highly enough.

We have been working with Priority Pixels for three years and during that time we have successfully launched and developed our website. Priority Pixels was in at the start and initially constructed our website and subsequently has helped to develop it with more and better features. They have always been on hand to answer queries and provide general support which we greatly appreciate.

Once the website was launched and live, I had no hesitation in retaining Priority Pixel's on a monthly retainer to continue to 'work behind the scenes' to support me with the ongoing, updating and maintaining of the website so it continues to perform at its optimum level.
