CONTENT OF PAGES

All pages, like the home page can have text, pictures, videos, sound, tables, maps or graphs with information. Text must be short and sharp, complete and related to the purpose of the page. Highlight the important parts (underline when you provide them) so that the web-designer can highlight them on the page with colour, font-size etc.

Pictures have to be scaled to fit the location on the page, but should be provided in their original format (bitmap, tif, jpg or whatever) without reducing their size, because the picture quality will drop if they go through multiple transformations.

Videos and sound should be done professionally to get the required quality specific to the internet. There are many options these days with animation and illustration. If it is important for the purpose of the page it pays to do this well.

Tables or graphs need to have relevant and complete information, but no more than the average user can process in a few seconds.

Just as for the home page the choice of linking to the next page (or activating further content on the current page) must be clear and attractive. Hyperlinks can be text, buttons or pictures.

Always focus on the purpose of the page and plan the content accordingly. Pages with one picture and/or a bit of text can be very effective and multiple products can each have their own page.  Don’t clutter your website, keep it simple.
