What Does Your Website Say About You?

realtors screenRealters ScreenThe internet has completely changed the way that people do business, and their most important purchases are no exception. Just having a website to promote your real estate business is a vital first step, but having the right website will show those undecided buyers and sellers that you are the agent for them!

Being Featured On Your Company Website

Being listed on your company's or office's website is certainly important. However, ask your broker or IT person if you are allowed to link your personal site from the office site. If you are, make sure you take advantage! Steering the traffic from the company's site to your own site will allow you to promote yourself as the agent for the job.

Make Your Website Simple And Easy To Use

Once the potential client is looking at the main page of your website, what is going to convince them to choose you? Having the flashiest site with all the bells and whistles may seem like a great idea, but most serious clients are looking for content, not gimmicks. Flashy animations, long introductions, and fancy transitions all make your site run slowly.

On the other hand, some have trouble with the content and don’t know where to begin. The following article will give you a few pointers on how to write quality content for your webpage.

What Is RSS And How Can It Benefit You?

RSS feedRSS FeedRSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It is part of the XML family that is used for syndicating information. Put simply RSS allows one web site to share information with another web site.

As a web site publisher, RSS offers a way for them to publish their information on many web sites, which in turns increases their reach on the Internet and the amount of traffic they receive to their web site. They also receive more one way links back to their web site. These benefits result in an increase in their search engine ranking.

As a web site owner, RSS allows them to receive up to date links to information on a regular basis that runs on auto pilot. When the publishing site is updated, their web site is also updated.

The result of this is that their web site is updated more regularly which also increases their search engine ranking.

The other benefit the web site owner receives from using RSS is that their information remains "fresh" which encourages their visitors to return on a regular basis.

However, the web site owner does not receive the complete articles, instead, they receive a feed that contains a title, a brief description and a link to the article that resides on the publishers web site.

What Is The Color Of Your Website?

color emotion brand guideColour Emotion Brand GuidePsychology behind the colors that can make or break your website’s success.

Did you know that the values associated with colors can have a significant impact on your website’s success? And did you know that you can change your visitor’s feeling, mood and reaction by using different colors on your website?

Some professional web designers do not realize the impact that a single color can have on their project when designing a website for their clients. In reality, the meaning of colors will send the first message of your website to your visitors. You don’t have to be a genius to find out why since it is obvious that the first thing they (visitors) see is the color of your site!

I have studied one hundred visitors to evaluate their patience for uploading a web page. First, I tried a plain black background page and the average waiting time was up to 2.47 seconds. Then I tried a plain white background page and the average wait time for uploading the web page increased to 4.89 Seconds.

The reason is just fear. People are afraid from black and darkness and they feel vulnerable when they see a plain black page. I won’t go in detail about this subject in this article but if you would like to know more you can always visit our site at http://www.websitedevelopmenttech.com and get more information about color psychology.

What Is Web Usability?

huge consumer electronics storeHuge Consumer Electronic StoreWeb Usability. It sounds very simple. "It’s just how to use the Web, right? I already know how to do that." That’s not exactly right. In fact, Web Usability is the layout, construction, structure and navigation of your website. Does that sound simple now?

Web Usability - A Real World Comparison

You can compare a website to an actual store. Let’s say you walk into one of those big retailers, looking for a new baseball glove. Now, you’ve never been there before. So, you first need to find the Sporting Goods section. This store is huge. And with all the shelves and displays up front, you can’t see the layout of the remaining 80% of the space.

The store might have a guide/map up front for you to check out. Then again, if it’s the chain I have in mind, they probably don’t. Instead, you’re going to wander around looking for signs. You also might use past experience in stores to make an educated guess. For example, you probably would look for the Pharmacy in the same area as the medicine and vitamins. That’s where they usually put it.
