    How to Make Your Website Better

    You will

    not make any money online if your website is not well made.

    Unfortunately, many internet marketers underestimate the importance of

    their website and don’t do a very good job creating it. Putting up a

    cheap or cookie cutter type website will not bring you the online

    success that you desire. It may take a little time and work to create an

    appealing, well-running website, but this effort will pay you back in

    the future with more sales. It is not really very hard to create a

    website that looks good and runs efficiently. You can have a website

    that brings lots of traffic and sales if you use some of these tips and

    guidelines.

    Double check your code. You can always put up a website using a free

    template, but if you want your site to be your own, you’ll probably want

    to modify it. You do not have to know a lot about coding to do this.

    Make sure, though, that your code checks out and that you don’t have a

    lot of breaks or typos. Incorrectly entered code can prevent your

    website from loading, or it could cause it to have a distorted

    appearance. Use the CSS Validator if you want to check your website for

    coding errors.

    Be creative with fonts, but don’t go crazy with them. Many people

    building their first website are tempted to use a large number of fonts.

    The more fonts you use, the harder it will be for people to read your

    website. Using more than a couple of different fonts will also label you

    as a beginner, and people will take your offers less seriously. People

    visiting your site should be able to easily read your fonts. Complicated

    or fancy fonts may look artistic, but they will not serve you well.

    Remember, you want your site to be easy to read. Don’t sacrifice

    readability for artistic variety.

    Keep aware and always make sure you’re maintaining

    a reasonable percentage of both informational copy and sales copy. You

    don’t want to go overboard on the text that is meant to sell something.

    If you violate that rule, your visitors will just leave and never return

    – that simple. A decent standard is 25% sales copy and the rest is

    informational or entertaining depending on your site. Of course you want

    to develop a feeling of trust, and you won’t do that if you engage in

    aggressive selling. You want your readers to buy from you after they’ve

    read enough on your site, plus your sales copy. If you start to sell too

    soon, you could alienate your readers.

    You don’t have to be a graphic artist or programming expert to build a

    good website. If you put some consistent effort into your website, you

    can make it great. The things you should or should not do on your

    website often come down to common sense more than technical knowledge.

    In most cases, you can trust your own judgment to tell you if something

    will be good for your website or not. Your website can always be

    improved a little bit at a time. Remember, the better your website, the

    easier it will be for you to make money online.
