The simplicity of the design of a website plays an important role in its success. The most important success factor for every website is its ability to offer substantive and qualitative content in the least complicated manner. These days, one finds several websites overflowing with unrelated advertisements and social media widgets, which can be really distracting to a visitor. It is generally advisable to keep your web page as neat as possible. This will surely help you keep the visitor hooked and cause less confusion in the visitor’s mind, allowing him/her to grasp the web content better.
The following steps will help designers to create websites which keep the clutter minimal and simplify the web design:
Visitors should be given enough space to read web content:
An upcoming trend among big internet players as well as other website owners, is to host as many number of links as possible on a single web page. The sole logic and idea behind this is to increase the probability of the number of visitors clicking on some paid advertisements. These advertisements ensures a regular revenue flow to these website owners. The clutter of website links all over the page can even prove to be annoying to a visitor. While it is important for the website owner to host links to ensure consistent revenue, they should be well designed and structured on the web page so as to enable the visitor to view web content without any obstruction from the links.
Effective web design to attract visitors:
If you are a small scale website owner and are looking to gain success, then the foremost thing you need to concentrate on is poaching the visitors of all the big websites in your or related field. Differentiating your website to cut the clutter, is the only way possible to achieve this. Therefore, If the top websites are offering a clustered web layout to their visitors (which they generally do), one can think of doing the opposite, by focusing more on the content and quality of your web page. A fresh and different look to your website is bound to attract more traffic.
Facilitating focused attention of the visitors:
While the traffic on big websites majorly comprises of those who may just be browsing through for random trivia or information, it is the small scale website owners who need to attract visitors who will stay loyal, so as to build long term consistent traffic. Hence, it is of utmost importance that web pages are so designed that visitors stay more focused on the content which you have to offer, rather than random social widgets and links. Hosting paid ads and links has no effect on the popularity of these websites. The only impact they seem to have is that they increase your short term revenue. However, what you need is consistent incoming traffic, which would ultimately bring you revenue.
Web Design to be based upon the purpose of the website:
The purpose of creation of your website is another point for consideration. The primary goal and purpose behind the website is the main inspiration behind the chief layout and web design. Within the first few minutes of visiting your website, the visitor should instantly get a feel of the nature and purpose behind your website and this would enable the visitor to understand the web content easily.
When you create a business around something you are passionate about, or that you’re really interested in, your motivation levels stay much higher over the long term. Having a keen interest in your business and what you’re striving for means you’ll actually enjoy working on it, so it never feels like work.
Instead, you soon find that you’re having fun even while your business is growing and making profits.
The problem most people find is that they don’t really know how to turn a hobby or a passion into a lucrative full-time business. Yet self-business ideas always end up among the most successful, so the key is to work out what you really enjoy doing every day.
Think about a topic or hobby or product that you’re really passionate about. It should be something you would love doing all the time. Once you’ve found your answer, you’re ready to turn it into a profitable business.
Turning Your Passion into Profit
It makes absolutely no difference what your passion is for; it’s possible to turn it into a solid business. No matter what subject you think of, there is a niche for it somewhere on the internet. You’ll find plenty of other people out there are interested in exactly the same thing as you are.
Those people are keen to buy information teaching them more about their passion. They’ll happily buy products that help them to achieve more from their passion. They’ll ask questions and seek out more people who love their hobby or interest as much as they do and they form communities around those things.
Those people are your target audience. They are really interested in exactly what you want to promote, no matter what you decided to make your business about.
The internet really does give you everything you need to succeed. You have access to those people and those communities. You have a way to promote your products quickly and effectively online. You can reach out to more people than ever before, simply because the internet is a truly global medium.
This means your business is never limited to only your local area. You have the world at your feet when you choose to establish your self-business ideas using an internet-based business model.
The biggest benefit here is that because you chose to work on business ideas that stem from what you already enjoy, you know you won’t get bored or give up on your business plan quickly. You’ll have a far better chance of staying motivated, which is the real key to achieving success.
What if I were to tell you that the vast majority of reasons you are NOT earning what you deserve are not your fault? Your fumbles, your struggles, your stops and starts and your frustrating failures are all part of the culture of information overload that permeates the internet marketing landscape like a plague.
The truth is, the EASIEST way to earn $100 an hour online is simple. Coaching, teaching or training others to do something you already do really, really well.
I’ve watched business coaches earn $300 per hour teaching online marketing strategies to OFFLINE professionals that just about all of us know like the back of our hands.
I’ve watched a client of mine quit her day job as a nursing administrator, after only 3 months of studying internet marketing techniques, and start a full time business setting up relationship marketing email campaigns for doctors and dentists.
I know a guy who does website “reviews” for his readers… and charges $250 per review, for a 10 point rating and revision system he offers that literally takes him 45 minutes to write (and his clients seem to love them… and just about anybody reading this article right now can do the very same thing).
The truth is, coaching, teaching and training… either in a one on one sort of service, or a group coaching environment, (or a combination of both) is the absolute EASIEST way to parlay your passion into profit that there is.
That said, there are still people I find that don’t want to do coaching.
Here are 2 more additional ways to either augment, supplement or replace personal services that can easily earn you $100 an hour with elegant ease… even if you are just starting out right now.
Creating your own information products.
Simply turn your coaching business into a product and offer it for sale on your blog or website. I’ve taken my own best coaching sessions and turned them into audio product and pdf’s, and the income you can earn from this model… as many of the online “gurus” have proven, is quite astonishing in the right markets. The truth is, the BEST way to earn fantastic money with information products is NOT in the “IM” space at all. Diet, Dating, Divorce and other evergreen markets that have nothing to do with making money are far superior and have much broader appeal as well.
Affiliate marketing as an INCENTIVIZED offer.
This is a bit more complex to explain in a short article, but the long and short of it is… you can literally GIVE way your products, your PDF’s, your audios, and even your services in exchange for people making a purchase that pays you an affiliate commission that is GREATER than what you could or would charge on your own.
I know a woman who gives away her own services to anyone who purchases a service she recommends that costs her readership about $10-$20, and pays HER over $100 (it’s a psychic reading service that pays a commission of $100 + to their affiliates for the first paid call, simply because they know that people who call once, will call back many times in the future as well, making it sensible for them to offer such a high commission to folks who recommend them).
She earns $300-$500 a day doing this, and is able to give away her own services in the process… which helps her attract an audience, grow her own reputation, built a great rapport and relationship with her readership, and earn a strong 6 figure salary as well.
