PowerPoint Presentation: Ten main principles of successful web design PowerPoint Presentation: If a site is to succeed, then it is its usable and utilization features that must claim the prize. This is why you as a visitor to a website only clicks where you want to navigate and leave other places . There are a set of ten principles that a site developer must take into consideration pertaining to the user . PowerPoint Presentation: 1. Users should not think When approaching a site, the users need instant gratification and thus the need to make the content simple, true, efficient and self-explanatory. 2. Impatience leads to site desertion If approaching a site requires lot of patience for the user, you can be sure that he or she will not stay for long . For instance, asking for passwords and contact information when offering a product leads to impatience on the user's part . PowerPoint Presentation: 3. Be able to guide the visitor's attention Websites that feature a combination of images, text, video and other graphical content will, in one way or another, grab the attention of a visitor . The same applies to links that appear in a brighter colour than the grey text or bold words in posts. 4. Command attention through site exposure Current designs for webpages usually pass as promotional because of their highly commanding visuals . These may include headers with screaming colors , huge icons and so forth . In fact, these may turn out to be the best ways to attract and retain interest in visitors ! PowerPoint Presentation: 5. Top-notch, relevant writing Botched content is dull and repels the user . However, if the style of writing and the content are quite high-quality , without any trace of its being commercial, it will attract readers . Adding helpful images and talking straight business that is polite and non-promotional also works . 6. Keep it Simple This principle, that is often shortened to KIS, is the first priority in design . The fact is that a complicated design is only beautiful but not informative, so its better to keep it simple . PowerPoint Presentation: 7. The white spaces work It is no exaggeration that a white space serves the same purpose as numbers, headings or other elements of segmentation . Readers will find ample white space inviting and will use it as a guide to jump from one key section to another . 8.Pass the message through visible communication means Keep the message self-explanatory on the screen which include: clear organization, economy and communication . PowerPoint Presentation: 9. Keep it conventional Conventional sites attract visitors because they eliminate the need to learn new design elements . 10. Test and make it a habit One theory argues that testing on a subject once is a hundred percent more effective than not doing so at all. In short, having a wonderful website requires not only testing but learning through the preferences of the user !
