In the online business world, there is no one set of best design decisions that fits all types of businesses. There are however a few design and marketing rules and considerations that apply across the board, and need to be taken into account.

You need to be clear what your business, or that of your client’s, is all about. This requires clear, consistent, complete, and well-written copy that, among other things, gets quickly to the point, guides viewers to the information they are looking for, and leads them to a call of action of their, or your, choosing.

There is naturally much more involved, as you will see.

A few things to bear in mind about the use of images:

  • We are members of a visual culture, and images are important.
  • Images get more total website views, and consumers prefer them over descriptive text.
