Number 1 Important Secret To Know When Owning a Website - by Robert Steve Smith

The most important tip to know when designing a profitable website is to make sure your layout is attractable to your focus group of clients or customers. The way your website appears will depend in most cases if someone will sign up for whatever product or services you are offering. Did you know that the average online person will spend 5 to 8 seconds on a website before they decide rather to go more in depth in a website, or simply search for another site that offers the same product or service? This is true in many cases. Think of it this way, when you search for something in Google.com tons of results come up right? Well when an individual see's all these similar sites they will most times only view the top 10 or top 5 under that search. Out of those they will look for a couple of things to see which site to invest their time into. The sites with a poor layout, and unfinished work, will be excluded from their search, and that will be the end of that. You don't want this to happen to you right?

To prevent this horrible issue from happening to you takes either high amounts of money, or hard work and inspiration. Some people like me have a talent for creating attention grabber content and designs for websites. For others, you would need to do the following:

1. Try to find some pre-made websites to use.

2. Download a program such as Adobe Photoshop to allow you to edit images.

3. Download a program called Microsoft Frontpage or Adobe Dreamweaver for editing templates.

4. Lastly, start to edit the premade template you found to suit your sites needs, and ask other designers what they would recommend you add to improve what you already have. Once you have customers or clients, send a mass email out asking them what they think of your layout and what they think you should add.

The steps above will surely place you on the right step with making sure visitors stay on your website longer than 8 seconds, and want to see what it is your website is about. If you do not have the skills or are completely new to designing or editing anything, you may want to hire someone to create a template for you. Note that this can sometimes be costly for a customized template. The cheaper way to go if you do not care for a customized template would be to follow step 1 with finding a pre-made template online and letting the designer/coder know what you need to be edited on the template.

Once you have had your website for a long period of time (two or three years), it's a great idea to update the design to give it a new touch. However, be careful not to make the design worse, but a design that shows that you're website is live and active.

If you're like me when I started, your only option would be to work hard and have inspiration. So maybe you do have the ability to work hard, but you need to receive inspiration from somewhere. Inspiration comes from tips such as the ones I'm mentioning, and other successful individuals already where you want to be someday. Then you have an insight of what needs to be done and set new goals for yourself. Know that anyone can achieve great status. If you take the time and dedication to put your all into your works, great results will definitely follow.

Remember your design is one of the number 1 keys to your websites success!
