Website Building - Keep it Simple


Keeping your website simple will make it much easier for you to build and manage your site.

Believe it or not, it will also make it a more positive experience for your end user.

Here's how you can keep your website building process 100% simple while creating a user experience that really impresses people. 

=> Simple Navigation, No Clutter

Many business analysts believe that the reason Facebook overtook MySpace was because Facebook was simply simpler, with less clutter. While nobody can be sure, most people would agree that Facebook is just easier to use than MySpace. 

One principle often taught in design is white space. New designers often want to add a ton of "cool features" and "cool looks," while experienced designers understand the importance of "less is more." 

The same can be said for your site. Keep the navigation simple. Don't clutter your page with too many colors or too many elements. Make it easy for you and your visitors. 

Often times this can mean just having a simple navigation bar. Maybe a breadcrumb system throughout the page. Nothing complicated. Don't worry about "silo SEO structures" or "DHTML dropdown menus" until you're at the point when it would make a financial difference. 

=> Low Tech, High Quality Content 

Don't use flash. Don't try and program your own social media site to go with your content website.  

Don't do your legal work before you've even built the site. The same can be said for your taxes. Or your stationary. People that tell entrepreneurs to file for a DBA/LLC, find an accountant and design a business card before even making $1 online simply haven't started a real business. 

Keep it simple on both the tech side and the prep side when you're getting started. The less time it takes between idea and launch, the better. 

What matters most is your content. Make sure you have top notch content and people will love your site, even if it's just dead simple HTML. 

=> Execute, Execute, Execute 

You can spend a lot of time planning. From researching your markets and planning websites to brainstorming specific sections or content ideas, it can really suck up your time and energy without you realizing it. 

Entrepreneurs often fall into the trap of analysis paralysis, where you're just thinking too much without putting in enough action. 

Execution is key. Launch your first version as soon as you possibly can. There are two entrepreneurial sayings that apply here: 

1) "If you're not a little embarrassed about Version 1, you took too long in launching it." 

2) "Launch your site as soon as it's even just a tiny bit better than the competition." 

The main message is this: Launch. Execute. Stop waiting, don't make things complicated, keep things simple and just build your website.
