web design tools becoming easier and easier to use,
anyone with an idea can create their own website. In many cases,
individuals who design without professional guidance miss key
elements, which compromise the effectiveness of their webpage.
In order to help understand some of these mistakes being
novice designers, we will dissect the current redesign of
http://www.profitmaker.net and discuss some of the major
questions that should be asked before creating or redesigning
What is the focus?
is the most important question to ask yourself before
begin any project. In the case of www.profitmaker.net, the main
purpose of the site was to promote the client's downloadable
book. The original design failed to accomplish this. Not only
was the book difficult to find, it wasn't even mentioned on the
main page! See for yourself:
order to ensure the downloadable book can be easily
by a visitor, two links were created on the main page to lead
prospects directly to the download page. If the link in the
header doesn't draw the attention of the prospect, the large
graphic of the book in the center of the page definitely will.
Also, eye-catching text, designed to promote the benefits of the
product, accompanies each link leading to the book's download
page. This gives the prospect yet another reason to download the
Does your design achieve continuity?
simple way to diagnose this problem is to ask "Do
elements in the webpage look like they belong together?" The
original design of profitmaker.net had two major problems in
this department. The choice of graphics for the navigation and
the choice of fonts were throwing off the overall unity of the
it comes to establishing continuity within a webpage,
is no better guide than simplicity. For the navigation and
overall graphics, a simple color pallet was chosen consisting
mainly of green as the primary color and yellow as a secondary.
Sticking to this color pallet ensures that we avoid the
introduction of colors that may clash with the rest of the
design. Also, font choices play a major role in achieving the
overall flow within the main page of the site. Again, simple is
the way to go. Only one major font was chosen for the redesign.
This makes it easier to establish font hierarchy, allowing clear
interpretation of the differences between headlines and body
Does your website capture leads?
capturing leads, any website that was created to
generate business is doomed to fail. When looking at the
original profitmaker.net design there are several things that
could be improved upon in this area. In the original design, the
newsletter sign up area was located nearly halfway down the page
compromising the chances of it being viewed by potential
customers. Also, the graphics and text accompanying the
submission field were not at all eye-catching.
Solution for this dilemma was simple. First, the
newsletter's sign up area's location was moved to become one of
the first items mentioned on the page. Secondly, it was given
more prominence by enlarging its headline text making it more
likely to be noticed by potential prospects.
