3 Tips to Make Your Website Stand Out from the Rest

Given that there are a billion people using the internet every week, it’s important for websites to be unique in some way.

While you may not have 6-digit (or 10-digit!!!) traffic stats yet, there are a few simple things you can keep in mind to help attract and maintain your audience.

1. Have cool design

Nothing makes me want to leave a site quicker than bad design. Poor color choices, weird fonts, too much text on the page, lack of appropriate white space, hidden contact info, etc. That being said, nothing makes me want to linger longer on a website than the opposite!

Fortunately for authors and artists, HostBaby makes it easy to design a website that is equal parts “cool” and “pro.”  And by choosing a dynamic but simple page layout and an attractive color scheme, you’re halfway there!

Next up is content.

 2. Curate content that people want to read

A website is no good if it doesn’t have an audience. Keep the people in mind and give them reason to keep coming back for more. How? Post cool stuff. Whether it’s your own awesome blog content or someone else’s interesting ideas, keep it compelling and keep it consistent.  And considering both content and design, keep mobile in mind.

 3. Make it mobile friendly

Nearly 60% of U.S. smartphone owners use their device to access the web and that number seems to be quickly on the rise. Knowing that many people are using their phones to access the net makes it all the more important to make sure your website is mobile friendly.  Thankfully HostBaby’s newly introduced backdrop themes have what’s called responsive design, perfect for mobile and tablet users because they adjust automatically to fit the size of the web browser or screen.
