When Your Goal of Website Design is Met
When to say enough and move on? When your goal of website design is met!
Donít spend countless hours fidgeting with your website design. It wonít add any value and you will miss out on using your time for more meaningful activities.
Web Designers often get caught up tweaking and fidgeting because they forget the main purpose of their website. They forget the goal. Donít make this costly mistake.
Remember that a website is not a Van Gogh painting. It does not have to be. In fact it probably will hurt you if it is. Rather, you want it to be simple and able to communicate well with your website visitor. You must achieve that while meeting the goal of website design.
Your goal can be different from mine or anyone else. Only you know that goal. Keep it in mind each and every step of the design process. When you have met it, stop hitting the keys and call it a day (for now at least).
From science class you must remember that the quickest way between to points is to take a straight route between them right? The same applies with your goal of website design.
Donít beat around the bush. Do what it takes and get there quick. If and only if you have time later, come back to patch it up a bit. But be careful. You donít want to end up spending hours tweaking your webpages. This activity adds absolutely no value to your website.
Website design is very subjective and involves a lot of opinions. Everyone will have a different opinion of your website. It will never be perfect and you canít please everyone. You will always find room for improvement.
Understand that paragraph and you are half way there to meet your goal of website design. The number one problem of web designers carrier over to another big problem, which is that they just donít stop designing.
Why Does It Happen?Why does that happen? Because they forget their goal or donít even have one. Donít be one of them. Have a goal in mind from the get go and stick to it. When you meet it, throw your hands up in the air!
When you donít have a goal, you are blind because you wonít know if you have met it right? For example, having a big website is a goal but it is not clear. Therefore it is not a goal at all. You canít meet it. But if you wanted a website with 200 pages, now that is a goal. You will know when you get there.
Trust me Ė you will drive yourself completely nuts if you donít have a clear goal in mind. Your work will just never ever end. How can it when you donít know what you want? It all comes back to purpose doesnít it?
Read discussion on website purpose to better understand this
Donít Get Emotionally AttachedThis is easier said than done. How can you not get attached to your baby? You have to practice this because it is important to assess your website from an objective point of view.
I highly recommend getting a friend or colleague to review your website for you. Ask them for their feedback and then ask yourself if you have met your goal of website design.
If you canít find anyone, take a break and come back to your own work with a fresh mind later. Maybe take the weekend off and do no work then come back and reevaluate it.
Keep notes of your observation and then sink them with your goals. Have you met them? What can you do to meet them? Trust your gut instinct here. Donít over think. Just take your reaction and assess your website with it. You can always repeat the same process later.
And when your goal is met, stop right there. Remember tweaking is a very low yield exercise, if at all. Only do this later once your website is finished (at the moment) and has started getting some traffic from search engines.
Consider Tools If You Donít Have the DisciplineI tend not to have a good website design discipline a lot of times. I just get too attached and bogged down tweaking and revising. For this website however, I used SBI because I wanted a clear and focused website that is easy on your eyes and easy for you to navigate around.
The simple navigation menu on the left, the search function and site map on the home page as you enter make it a user friendly site. Also notice how I have a lot of white space to allow your eyes to breathe? I have used short and choppy sentences and headlines to give you clues about what each webpage is about.
SBI coaches you at each and every step to ensure you stick to your focus and meet your goal of website design. It also takes care of all the search engine optimization for your webpages so you can focus on creating content.
Of course, you can tweak as much as you want even within the SBI program. However, the program does a very good job of keeping you focused and ensuring you narrowcast to your niche through its various free tools and built in modules.
So if you are like me or donít trust your web design discipline enough, I strongly recommend you try SBI it out. There is no way to fail if you follow the step-by-step instructions.
