An efficient website has various design elements that play a vital role such as design, consistency, usability, and user experience. One most important part of any website is its footer, though it’s not really the most creative section or most interesting content, it certainly is a section where visitors frequently look for info about the site. Some time ago, we published an article on things you should not be doing in your website footer.

When it comes to increasing sales for your ecommerce store, there are 3 levers you can pull: You can increase your average order value; You can increase the amount of traffic to your site; You can increase your conversion rate.

While all of the above are important, the cheapest, most effective way to grow your sales is by improving your conversion rate.

For most online stores, low conversion rates are typically the result of a poor design or a bad user experience. Your visitors may not resonate with the look and feel of your website or they may have problems finding the information they need in order to make a purchase.

A blog is a forum where people discuss certain concepts. The posts on a blog are displayed in reverse order so that the latest post appears first and the first post will appear last. A blog is helpful in marketing to a point where it caters to your target audience’s specific needs. And the audience can reach you through the commenting section. Initially, the commenting section was dull with a box that would receive the comments of the blog readers. But now, the commenting section can be well designed to encourage user feedback and comments.

Blog comments are a great way to enhance conversation between the writer and his or her audience where they can share facts, ideas, concepts, and more. This blog focuses on the blog comment designs that you can use on your blogs that are eye-catching, minimalistic yet aesthetically appealing.

Contentful; Webster’s Dictionary defines “contentful” as… not found. Clearly someone made up this word, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

The world of user experience metrics is moving quickly, so new terminology is needed. Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is one of a number of metrics measuring the render time of content on a web page.

What is Largest Contentful Paint?

Google defines LCP as “the render time of the largest content element visible within the viewport.” For what we are talking about in this blog, we will consider “content” to be an image, typically a JPEG or PNG file. In most cases, “largest” points to a hero image that is “above the fold” and is one of the first images people will notice when loading the page. Applying optimization to this largest content is critical to improving LCP.

It is probably more instructive to view LCP relative to other metrics. For example, First...

Why should anyone trust you? That’s the first (and often toughest) question independent business people have to ask themselves. I believe webinar marketing can be a huge part of the answer.

Webinars are online workshops or lessons that have twin objectives: a learning outcome for attendees, and a marketing or sales outcome for your business. Webinar marketing is all about hosting online workshops to connect with attendees in order to promote your business. In essence, a webinar platform is a digital classroom—optimized to leverage great lessons into business growth.

There’s no better way to demonstrate your authority than by harnessing your own knowledge to give consumers real, tangible value. And what’s more valuable than a great lesson?

Most of the information we consume happens through reading, so it makes a lot of sense to pay attention to the words when designing. There are many aspects to typography, but one of the things that helped improve the quality of my design was letter-spacing.

Letter-spacing is about adding and removing space between letters. Some people confuse it with kerning, but these two are different; letter-spacing affects the whole line of text, whereas kerning adjusts the space between two individual letters at the time. Kerning is best left to type designers, besides which, unlike letter-spacing there is currently no way to control kerning in CSS.

I believe that practice and a lot of observation will change the way you treat letter-spacing in your work as well.

The Purpose of Letter-Spacing

The main purpose of letter-spacing is to improve the legibility and readability of the text. Words act differently...
