There are a lot of ways to make money online, and I will not be covering all of them in this article. This article will concentrate on informational web sites. I like informational websites as a vehicle for making money online for several reasons. They require almost no work once they are created; you turn them loose on the internet and deposit the checks as they arrive. They require very little website design expertise, and no programming to speak of, and don’t really need much in the way of graphics, so the sites are easy for me to build myself. Since I am simply providing information about a particular subject, I don’t need to interact at all with my visitors. I don’t need to provide the visitors with an email address or any way to reach me…a real blessing in my opinion.
You need to hire a custom website design company that can provide you with a completely unique look. Your custom website design should include your logo, tag line, and personal contact information. When considering a custom website design company, you should mull over a few things. A good custom website design company will be able to create custom banners for your site and upload high quality pictures. The pictures used on your site should be individually owned by you, not just clip art from a software program. You also need to consider the layout of your page. It needs to be user friendly and easy to navigate. Your customers should never feel frustrated when trying to find information.
Dead page links. Web page links that do not work are very frustrating. Check all your links work and that they point to the right place. Another good reason is that having dead page links can penalise you in the earch engines as well.
TEST THE WEBSITE. The way the page looks on millions of computer monitors and many brands of computers and browsers can differ greatly. If you are serious about your website development, you should ask friends with different computers [Macintosh and Windows] and different operating systems [Windows 98 – Windows XP] using different browsers [Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, Mozilla etc] to look at the pages online *before* you tell customers your site is ready! Be willing to accept constructive criticism, thank your friends for their help.
Learn about shortcuts, and use them often. Almost everything has a shortcut in web design, and if you take the time to look them over, you’ll find quick ways to do almost everything. There are even HTML codes that allow you to make fast changes to each of your pages without having to re-upload them.
So, a bit of lateral thinking may lead you to this domain, fordsierraservicingypurtown. You do have to watch that the domain is not too long. Try and keep it simple if at all possible. Think how easy it will be for internet users who you want to attract to your business, to find you.
Fonts that are too small. Use fonts that are easy to read since this may have a big impact. Not all your site visitors have a perfect vision and eyes can deteriate over time. Also consider making your site W3C compliant so that even the blind can read it with a screen reader. Make sure you don’t use images that contain text, as screen-reading software will not be able to “read” them.
