Essential Elements For A Website 

While every designer has a different way of thinking when it comes to create a website. some aspects of a website are generally commonwhile there are a few things that should be included in a website. 
There is many common elements that users expect when it comes to using a website easily. Today we’re taking a look at elements you should prioritize on your website. 
Space is one of the most important design tools because it dictates everything—from flow, to readability. More site designs include more spaces, increased spacing between lines of text, and use of open space. 
Space is also important when it comes to creating a focusing point for users. A larger text with more white space is better than a cluster of small text. 
Simple Navigation 
Navigation does not need to be complex when it comes to searching. It should be easy to use. As a rule of thumb, designers should keep the menu items as minimum as possible. 
Sites with parallax scrolling often include directional arrows to make the site more user friendly. The easier it is for people to use, the longer they will interact with it. 
Use simple navigation as you build your website. Remember, users want easy accessibility and navigation. 
About Us 
The About Us section is critical for a small business or site owner to tell users about their company, their mission and their employees 
The About Us page should tell users who you are and what you do. It can outline company goals or how the site came to be. This page can also be the place for customer to tell their success stories. This type of page can also serve as a gateway to related pages or even social media profiles. 
Contact Information 
Contact information should be displayed in two ways – in the header / main navigation, or as a Contact Us pageBoth the options can work well, depending on your site structure. 

The main thing is to make it more visible. Putting contact information such as a phone number, physical address, or form to contact the website owner is extremely useful. It can be frustrating for users if they are not able to find contact information for the company. 
Call to Action (or Signup) 
popular call to action is a signup form. Designers should place the form in a prime location and size it prominently. Also, make the form simple and convenient to fill out, making it more usable. 
The search tool is vital for frequent users. Designers should build the search tool in a way that is easy to use. One key is to make sure the box is big enough to type a large amount of textAnother key is that if you use an icon for search, use the standard magnifying glass. 
Informational Footer 
Your website footer is the way to connect your audience with information without an elaborate design. Because the footer is at the bottom of the page, it is a logical location for a small site map, contact information, links and context for your site. 
Make the footer useful and keep it simple. Even if you put up links in your footer, don’t mesh it up. Making it stylish and easy to use is the key to a good navigational footer. 
Style for Buttons 
The navigation buttons on a site should be easily visible as a button. All buttons should have the same shape and design, making the web page look more consistent. Creating a set of buttons that goes with the design of your website could pose to be difficult, but it’s important to make them all the same theme. 
Great Images 
It’s always a good idea to create exciting visuals to attract users to your site. Great images are one easy way to do this. With a good set of photographs, you can show products, people, or whatever you want to portray to engage users to your site. 
Web Fonts 
Web fonts are important for two key reasons – compatibility and licensing. By using a web font service, which is important for search engine optimization, designers don’t need to work hard to maintain a certain look.

A home page needs to be welcoming, professional looking, building trust, answering questions, and providing clear direction. Ok so what’s the problem? You haven’t defined anything yet.
