See below for some handy hints to get you started in the right direction.

Simple Tips

The Home Page –Get straight to the point of what you can do to assist your target audience. Make this information pleasant to read… use sympathetic fonts and sizes. Also consider “other” viewers who may be interested but who are not necessarily players.

Remember that correct grammar and spelling are essential components of a successful site. (Think how shocked you would be if your newspaper contained such errors)

The design MUST translate to smart phones and all things portable.

A scrolling page can work well – if you are just doing a single page and is definitely worth considering as it engages your audience more and more – they do not need to click to further pages because it is all there.

Give Lots of contact options

TYPES OF PAGES

TYPES OF PAGES

Navigation (menu/helpers) >>

Consumption (find out more) >>

Interaction (order/action) >>

Your MENU

Your MENU

The top menu does not EVER vary. Horizontal is best unless there are tons of choices and the top menu cannot display them, only then is it ok to use a vertical menu.

CREATE LOGICAL PAGES

CREATE LOGICAL PAGES

Have your actual content available in writing before you start designing.Map tasks to individual pages.Each Page should:

1. Help the user accomplish 1 specific task

2. Make the next step easy to access

(ie create a relationship between many small tasks)

CREATE SITEMAPS AND WIREFRAMES

CREATE SITEMAPS AND WIREFRAMES

Using Cards as pages and subpages, arrange a site-map and then test as much as possible – use 15 testers … until the Customer IS in the right place because you have what they are looking for, and possibly even something better…. And now they are going to convert by applying/buying/registering.

METADATA (information about information)

METADATA(information about information)

Compile Great Content:

THE most likely details that need to be included – based on user interest/needs (and make it really comprehensive). If you are selling something describe it in every possible way, because how you see it may not be the same as how your customer does.
