Five Website Design Mistakes Not To Make

Website design software is everywhere, and so are website design companies. You can even design your own website for free, if you so desire, on many different site builders. Considering the many options that exist, it’s completely understandable that small business owners often feel a sense of confusion when it comes to building a website. While there are many extremely desirable elements to website design, there are also some things you should avoid. Here are five website design mistakes you should be careful never to make.

Mistake #5: Using PDF Files Instead of Pages

It might be tempting to scan existing documents into pdf format and upload them onto your website. Give visitors a link to click, and up comes your pdf. Easy, right? Wrong! People hate finding pdf’s on websites. They take a long time to load, and they can be hard to read. Take the time to create a new page that contains the pertinent information. You can build links and backlinks, add great photos, and make your page a pleasure to visit instead of an irritation. Annoyed visitors leave a site and look for a better one — so skip the pdf’s.

Mistake #4: Using Bookish Text

People want information fast. They want to scan your site and see whether you have what they are looking for. So:

• Do not make your site look like the page of a book. Keep it interesting.
• Use photos and vary the text size to highlight different areas of your page.
• Use bulleted lists and quick paragraphs with headers that tell the visitor what they’re going to find under that heading.
• Make your site interactive. The more fun people have when they visit your site, the more successful it will be.

Mistake #3: Building A Flashy Site That Is Too Complicated For Users To Navigate

You can have the most beautiful looking website in the world, but without elements that are properly built using proven website design techniques, your site will be just more pretty pictures — and the internet is full of those! People want to go to a site, find what they are looking for, and leave. The better and faster the internet gets, the faster people expect sites to work.

Mistake #2: Preventing Smartphone Users From Accessing Your Site

This is a relatively new mistake in website design, and if you’ve got a website now, it’s worth looking into. Can people who surf the web on their iPhone, Droid, Blackberry or other smartphone get into your site? Can they find what they’re looking for, and navigate well? If not, your site needs first aid. Fast.

Mistake #1: Not Hiring A Professional To Handle Website Design

You might want to help your buddy who is learning about website design build his portfolio by building you a website, and while that might be OK if he has some experienced guidance, it also might ruin your chances of ending up with a great site that is both user friendly and high ranking. These days, website design is about a lot more than looking good. Hire a professional, and your site will do exactly what you need it to — gain you business, and increase your bottom line.

Review of Summit Comedy Inc

Summit Comedy LogoIf you are looking for quality talent for your event, if you’re looking for a new twist on entertainment for your night club, or if you’re just looking for a really great laugh for a night look to Summit Comedy Inc. We hired Summit Comedy for a Christmas party this past year and they were a hoot! Established in 1998, they have quickly become one of the greatest suppliers of comedy in the United States.

There is no venue that can’t be taken care of either by Summit Comedy. Whether it’s your night club, corporate event, holiday party or even a private party they can take care of it all. With the amount of entertainers that they readily have available for events, it’s no surprise why they are as popular as they have become. You can get Stand-Up comedians, magicians, ventriloquists and celebrity comedians just to name a few.

This is the absolute easiest way to get quality talent for any and all events that you can think of, even children’s parties. The laughs are flying all over the place and people will not stop talking about how great the show was, how much their abs hurt from the workout of laughing so hard, or even how much they can’t wait for the next event to see more.

Booking your entertainment couldn’t be any easier either. You can go online to their site and request a quote, check out some of the talent that you can book and set everything up with push button ease. If you want top star quality for a major event, you can realistically find that with Summit Comedy Inc.

These are not people that you’ve never heard of either. They have talent that have been on shows like NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, HBO, Comedy Central and David Letterman to name a few. You know that you’re going to get a good quality “clean comedian” entertainment. They also tailor their comic entertainment around your specific event to make it just that much more memorable.

Summit Comedy even provides tips on how to make your event the most successful and smoothest running that you’ve ever done. They take out all the uncertainty by providing some do’s and don’ts for running a successful comedic event.

With your event, as I’m sure you’d suspect, you can even get quality DJs to take care of the music, photographers to take before and after shots with your party goers, and even provide live music if you’d prefer.

Even if you feel overwhelmed and slightly “out of your league” regarding booking an entertainer, Summit Comedy is right there to help you with any and all questions and concerns that you may have. They can give suggestions as to what would make your event spectacular and between you and Summit Comedy; you can come up with the best night for your event ever.

So now in case you’ve ever wondered why your competitor’s events have been so great and why everyone can’t stop talking about them, you have the inside scoop. Maybe even the edge and insider information to make your next event something everyone not only talks about, but can’t wait until the next one comes up. We had a blast at the Christmas party and we would highly recommend Summit. Connect with Summit to hire your own comedian on the Summit Comedy Strikingly Page

How to wireframe a website | CharliMarieTV

Wireframing is the first stage of the web design process, and in this video I show you how I do it and give you some advice! Please remember to subscribe

If you’ve ever wondered how to wireframe a website, or if you want to know how to design a website and you’ve never heard of wireframing, this video is dedicated to you! Yes, you. Wireframing is the process of laying out the bones or the structure of a website to think about how the information will be organised on the page before you start thinking about colours and fonts and other visual things. Using the wireframe process I teach you in this video you’ll be able to generate lots of ideas for different ways to arrange your website and be able to decide on the best one from there.

I hope you enjoy the video! Please make sure you give it a thumbs up if you do. I’m still learning how to make tutorials MY way (not just screen casts) so any feedback is much appreciated. I ant these videos to feel like we’re sitting in a room together and I’m showing you what to do, rather than you just looking at my screen as I do something. Does that make sense?

If there’s something design-related you’re struggling with that you’d like a tutorial on next, let me know!
