After you have your pages built, images in place, and all the content you need, it's time to think about improving your site. A good website grows and changes to provide better experiences for your visitors.
Some things that you can do to make a good site even better:
- Use your website like a visitor would and get feedback from users of your website. Use that feedback to make their experience better.
- Look for large blocks of text or sentences that are unclear. Look for ways to increase the readability of your website.
- Do your images all share a common theme? It really helps the cohesiveness of a website if they have a similar look and feel.
- Make sure your page loads fast. Services like SiteLock and Cloud Hosting help load your page faster around the world.
- Have a clear Call to Action. Make sure your site immediately invites visitors to contact/email/buy as soon as they arrive.
- Is your site mobile friendly? Search engines rank mobile friendly sites higher, making them more effective.
