General Website Tips

  • Your website is not an effective marketing tool. Use something else to market your services.
  • It is an effective way for people to access your services.
  • The most popular things people come to your website to do are:
    1. Search the online catalog
    2. Find out when you're open
    3. See what events are coming up
    4. Contact you
  • Be brief. Be clear.
  • Use images sparingly and with a purpose.
  • You can't emphasize everything. You'll need to make choices.
  • Slideshows look good, but the first slide is the only one that 90% of people see.
