Web Design Sydney - Why Does The Website Design Matter?The Following is a recent article we wrote about the importance of quality web design practices.
People may not judge a book by its cover but that courtesy is not extended to websites. 30 seconds. That’s how long the average surfer spends on a page before reaching a decision on whether to stay or leave. It doesn’t give you much time to sell the services of your business. If you want to attract and keep customers on your page, then the quality of the design of your website is essential.
What Are 'Bounce' Rates and Why Do They Matter?The design of your website will affect its ‘bounce rates’. A website’s bounce rate is the percentage of single page visits that it receives. It’s not enough for visitors to simply visit the page of your site and then leave. Your website needs veiewers interested, encouraging them to visit other pages. How else will they learn more about the product or services that you have on offer? If the current bounce rate of your website is over 35 % then you should be concerned. Optimizing the design of your website is the only way of ensuring that you are able to retain and convert a higher percentage of the traffic that your website receives. There are over 300 million websites online today, so the competition to get visitors to your website and once there, to retain their interest is fierce.
What Makes A Good Website Design?So what makes a good website design? While the layout of different websites may vary, there are certain core design elements that every good website should have. For instance, when creating your website, it is important that you choose a design that is attractive and simple. A simple design will ensure that your surfers do not get lost while navigating through your websites.
Design ConsiderationsA good Sydney web design should also have pages that download quickly. To achieve this, avoid relying on graphic intensive images or videos. As attractive as Flash (a technology used in some website designs) may be, there are several alternative options that you can use on your page without the associated drag of flash. Most of the best Sydney web designs tend to be flash-less.
It is important to choose the right font size for your page and ensure that it doesn’t clash or get drowned out with the background. Avoid cluttering your website with too much information at once. The information on your site should be provided in a structured hierarchal layout and not splashed haphazardly across the page. Use tabs and drop down menus to distribute the amount of information found on a page. The colors of your links and text should remain coordinated on the different pages of the site. Be sure to choose colors that do not clash too loudly with the overall visual theme of the site.
E-commerce Website DesignAmazon is a good examples of how to approach your Sydney web design. Their site architecture is designed to help surfers find the products that they need with as little difficulty as possible. These ecommerce sites also use different type of cues such as call-to-action buttons and typography to encourage the buyer to try out new options. When designing your ecommerce website, it is important that you include a clear description of all your products.
Your buyers will want to learn more about the items that they are buying. You should also have different payment options integrated into your e-commerce website. Popular options include PayPal, credit/debit cards and electronic checks. This ensures that your customers will be able to purchase your products even if one payment option is unavailable to them. Lastly, don’t forget to place the “Buy Now” button in a prominent place! There’s no point in hiding this important button in an obscure corner of the website, or making it blend into the background. This is your “Call-To-Action” button – get it out there for all your visitors to see!
Our SEO Service:If you’re serious about turning your business into a success, then search engine optimization is crucial. Statistics show that as much as 62 % of the surfers, who use search engines, click on links within the first result page while less than 10 % use links found on the third page of the search engine results. Don’t be content to sit on the lower pages of Google. Elevating the ranking of your website to Google’s first page will enhance your online visibility and increase the amount of traffic that your website generates. In the past years, DRC Systems has been one of the few Australian SEO companies consistently ranking websites on the first page of Google’s search result. There’s a reason for this. We don’t just understand the importance of being ranked highly on search engine results. We know how to get you there.
Web Design Sydney - Latest Article on Web Design - March 2012
Web Design Sydney - What is a CMS or Content Management System?When you're looking at web design in Sydney you might want to consider the benefits of having a web page with CMS - Content Management System.What that means is that your site will have a “back end” (not viewable by the public) where you can upload content (text, images, sound and video files, etc.) without relying on a programmer to do it for you. This makes making changes your self to your website very easy!
Web Site Design Sydney - What are the benefits of CMS?
Ease of Start UpA CMS system means that you don't need to spend your time learning to program in computer ‘languages’ like HTML. In fact most CMS systems are designed for the absolute novice – and it takes very little time to learn to use them.
User-FriendlinessIf you can use Microsoft Word, you can use a CMS; the interface allows you to type (or copy and paste) text into a window, upload images (or other files) and then the CMS does the hard work for you – it takes your input and formats it for your site at the touch of a button.
Ideal For Those Without Programming ExperienceA CMS doesn't require a degree in web design or computer programming for you to be able to use it. In the long run some people like to, and benefit from learning a little bit about HTML so you can make minor tweaks to the code themselves – but to start with it's just like using a word processing package. Really it's that simple.
Web Design Sydney - What is Wordpress?Wordpress is the world's number one content management system, it's used for hosting blogs and website content. It's very easy to use, and is the platform of choice for first time website users and bloggers alike. Because the platform is so popular you don't have to worry about it going out of date and losing support. In fact it's so straight forward that many people with no previous programming experience can set one up by themselves in as little time as a few hours.
Web Designer Sydney - Why We Design with WordpressHang on, if it's that easy why do I need a web designer? Sydney residents might be able to set up a basic website by themselves, but to get a professional polished image – it takes a professional. While the CMS is very simple to use customising the templates to give an individual and corporate image – is not so easy, in fact it takes real programming experience. Our team specialise in web design for Sydney – and we use Wordpress so that you can manage your site once it looks just right.
Web Designer Sydney - Hallmarks of Good Graphic Design
It Communicates Your IdeasWhen you engage your web designer in Sydney, you'll want them to be able to communicate the core concepts of your business – visually. That means visitors to your site should be in no doubt as to what you do – even if they can't read English.
Emphasis on the MessageThe design should also complement the message of your copy and even enhance it. That means it reinforces your communication efforts without distracting potential customers. It's a sure way of increasing the return on the investment you put into your web site.
Aesthetically PleasingGreat web design for Sydney will be truly aesthetically pleasing, that means it needs to follow long established principles of graphic design, that make your content pleasing to the eye and encourage your customers to spend more time on your site and increases the chance that they will make an enquiry or purchase from you, if your website is designed to sell a product or service.
Trends in Sydney Web design - What to Look For In Web Design in Sydney in 2012 Sydney web designers are amongst the leaders when it comes to innovative web design and latching onto the latest web design styles, programming techniques, web design graphics creating distinctive and fresh looking website designs. Here at DRC systems in sunny Leichhardt, Sydney love to create unique and eye catching designs, whilst conveyed our clients' ideas and messages to their website visitors.
Sydney Web Designers - Emerging Web Design Trends in 2012In this latest article we look at some of the web design trends that we believe will dominate web design in Sydney in 2012
1. Minimalist Home Page Web Design.The day of the cluttered, 'in your face' web design is gone, or at least going, we feel. We talk with many other Sydney web design companies frequently and they are in agreement that often 'less is best' when it comes to a compelling, visitor friendly web design. Here is an example of a visually striking, but 'minimal' website design we can up with to demonstrate this concept : Minimalist website design
Note the striking graphic images on the home page, offset against a pure white background with a simple , but striking black and white logo which 'brands' the website to the clients business. Business websites do not have to be crammed with content and 'messages' to gain a web visitors attention. How often have you been to a website to be bamboozled by too much information , fancy graphics and images and an array of font sizes and typography that is an assault to the senses? A plain, clean white coloured background with a striking image is very powerful in gaining a website visitors attention and curiosity. As a leading Sydney web design company, we like to keep at the 'edge' of design trends and love to come up with fresh, new website designs for our Sydney clients.
2. Huge Images.The combination a large image, focusing attention to a strong message is a powerful combination and many Sydney web designers are adopting this trend. As well as large images, our graphic designers like to use increasing large company Logo's to make sure the website visitor is under no misunderstanding as to who's website they are visiting. A recent website design project we came up with for a Sydney company needing a website for their kitchen business, illustrates this concept very well. Check out: Recent Sydney website design with large images Notice how the stunning graphics and images draw your attention immediately to the sensational kitchens that the Sydney company manufactures. The website designer paid a lot of attention to this aspect of the web design to ensure that the quality of design of the kitchen company became apparent to the website visitor.
3. Creative Navigation and Menu's.There is an increasing trend for more imaginative menu systems used in web design. As long as the website viewer is able to easily located and understand elements of the menu then why settle for a standard menu bar at the top of the homepage of your website? The menu can be incorporated into the sidebar, into images (eg - 'click here for our portfolio' on our Web Design Sydney website!), into the footer or as single words , which then link to the relevant page of the website. We hope you can see some of these web design concepts by viewing our latest designs at our Web Design Portfolio
