5 Web Design Best Practices For a Great Website

5 Web Design Best Practices For a Great Website | Technology | Scoop.it

Great websites do not happen by accident. A site is considered successful if it is useful, relevant, and well designed. As the Head of the UX department in a code-free web design platform, I spend a lot of time thinking about great design and how it can be used to create great websites. While different web projects each have different needs, there are some design principles and best practices that are universal to all sites. In this article, we will take a look at 5 Design Tips to Revive Your Dead Website....

Marty I agree. So many businesses still think "Build it and they will come".
The website gets built, they spend thousands promoting it and doing social media and yes the visitors come. One small problem no one discussed with the website development company or budgeted for follow up analytics and review of the design and content to see what changes can be made to improve the ux. So many visitor never comes back and that's where the problem is with most websites. Percentage of return visitors is key.

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | Technology | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.

 

The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

Why Your Business Needs A Social Media Presence - Two infographics - WordPress Hosting SEO Cloud

Why Your Business Needs A Social Media Presence - Two infographics - WordPress Hosting SEO Cloud | Technology | Scoop.it

Why Your Business Needs A Business Social Media Presence. Online consumers are more likely to buy things from brands they know or have followed through social media for some time.

 

An infographic published by Mr. Youth, a word of mouth marketing firm, polled 4500 adults to uncover the impact of social media on purchases. They discovered that social media not only influences brand reputation and PR, but often can lead directly to a sale.

 

Over 90% of respondents either received or made recommendations to friends and families on Facebook. 65% of these social recommendations directly led to a purchase. On top of that, 80% of those who received a response to a social media post by a brand made a purchase as a result of that interaction.

 

With numbers as striking you’d think businesses would be quick to comprehend. Yet according to the study, brands only respond to half of their social media posts, divided almost equally between Facebook and Twitter. The full report will be available in two weeks....

#SocialMedia marketing is the lifeline for brands looking to target the online audience for anything from product promos, launch campaigns & many more parallels by leveraging objective, reach & impact. The key is in the analysis to determine the campaign ROI and keeping these dynamics in mind, a business website is the digital connection that businesses must incorporate to nullify reservations about a product purchase by referring to online reviews, product demos, customer experiences and so on.

 

Work of Mouth marketing is still one of the most influential catalyst that incites intent to check out a new product or brand based on references. A business website is the connection required to establish  a working relationship between the buyer & the seller. By integrating #social sharing icons & buttons, the process to recommend services to friends & family becomes much easier and simpler to complete. This irrevocably creates the influence of digital marketing & social media marketing for brands with instant real time reach & interaction with buyers & random online visitors across the fabric of the web.
