๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ4 Common Web Design Mistakes Youโ€™re Probably Makings
โ €
1๏ธโƒฃ Not Targeting Your Ideal Client
โ €
One major mistake I see people making is not targeting you ideal client.
โ €
The best way to attract a client is by speaking to their needs and wants.
โ €
Make sure that you know who your ideal clients are and hone in on their pain points and show them that your offer is exactly what they need.
โ €
Make sure that your messaging is clear on what you do, what you offer and what you stand for.
โ €
2๏ธโƒฃ Not Utilizing SEO
โ €
I have talked a lot about how important SEO is for your business, but this is still a major mistake that I see people making.
โ €
Visuals for your website are important , but if no one can find your website it is pointless.
โ €
Make sure that you study up on SEO and learn how to implement it on your website.
โ €
Make sure to use Google Analytics to find out how people find your website, how long they spend on your website and what pages that visited.
โ €
This will help you to plan out your website with SEO and marketing efforts to potential clients.
โ €
3๏ธโƒฃ No Call To Action
โ €
Another common mistake people make is not using a CTA on their website.
โ €
Once you get a potential client to our website you want to tell them what to do next.
โ €
By using as simple CTA like โ€œsign up for my email listโ€ you can continue communicating with that potential client long after they have left your site.
โ €
๐ŸŒŸExamples of CTAโ€™s you can use:
Shop Now
Sign-up
Discover
Try
Learn More
Watch
Start Now
Get Started
Work With Me
โ €
4๏ธโƒฃ Not Making It Easy to Use
โ €
When it comes to web design simple is always better.
โ €
When you start to over complicate your website, your potential clients might get confused and you could end up losing that client.
โ €
๐ŸŒŸ Here are some tips to help you simplify:
โ €
Use a image shrieked to make sure that your images will be mobile responsive.
โ €
Use a cacheing plugin to speed up page load time.
โ €
Add your most important features on your main navigation menu.
โ €
Add a search bar to help clients in case they get lost.
โ €
๐Ÿ—ฃIf you need help with your website send me a dm and I would love to help you out.

๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ4 Easy Ways to Brand Your Social Media Accounts๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I know you ladies have heard me say that you shouldnโ€™t use Canva to make logos.

โ €
1๏ธโƒฃ Banners
โ €
In Canva select Facebook banner and make a banner that features your brand colors and fonts.
โ €
If you upgrade to Canva Pro you can resize your Facebook banner and use it for your Linked In, YouTube or any other platform that allows you to add a banner.
โ €
If you donโ€™t want to upgrade just make sure to select the appropriate size canvas and make the other banners similar to the original banner.
โ €
โœจRemember you can always change the banners as time goes on to match what you are currently offering or launching.
โ €
2๏ธโƒฃIcons/ Headshot

Use a professional headshot as the icon for your social media accounts. Donโ€™t hide behind your logo ,show your pretty face.
โ €
This gives a professional and well put together feel to your profile.
โ €
3๏ธโƒฃ Post
Make post that show off your brand colors and custom font.
โ €
Choose one of your brand fonts to stay consistent on your feed.

๐ŸŒŸ 3 Benefits of Making Your Own Link Page on your website. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
โ €
Many of you already know that using third-party apps like Linktree, Link in Bio and Milkshake or other similar apps can harm your Instagram Bio. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ
โ €
And if you didn't, well now you do!! ๐Ÿ˜
โ €
Here are three benefits of making your own link page on your Wordpress site.
โ €
1๏ธโƒฃIt's FREE if you already have your own website.

2๏ธโƒฃ You can send traffic to YOUR website versus sending them to a third party site.
โ €
The longer someone is on your site the better the chance of them working with you. ๐Ÿ’ต
โ €
Let your link page be another chance to attract and land that client.
โ €
3๏ธโƒฃYou won't get flagged by Instagram for using a third-party app. ๐Ÿคฎ
โ €
You won't have to worry about your link not working either as long as you manage your site often. ๐Ÿ–ฅ
