niche website designWay back in my earlier days online, I was all about creating Niche Websites and Niche website design.  I ended up with 121 of them, I sold some, developed others, got rid of some.  Got hacked multiple times.

Now with my renewed energy and focus, I am starting of rebuilding my online income. Even though I am starting the first leg of revenue with Drop shipping and E-commerce, I still have a few niche websites that I play with.

I wanted to share some of the things that I’ve learnt along the way.

When you start to develop your Niche Website Empire,  you need to give extra attention to the minute detail, to make sure you site performs the best it can serve its purpose. Here’s FIVE of the most important tips, I have found so far to make sure my niche websites perform as best they can.

1) Do not use splash pages

Splash pages are the first pages you see when you arrive at a website. They normally have a very beautiful image with words like “welcome” or “click here to enter”. They are nothing more then excessive window dressing.

These days visitors  don’t have a lot of free time, so do not let your visitors have a reason to click on the “back” button! Give them the value of your site up front without the splash page.

Take this to mean get to the point, the sooner the better.

2) Do not use excessive banner advertisements

With every one chasing a dollar, you are sometimes tempted to load your site up with Banner Advertising (Affiliate marketing advertising).  Even the least net savvy people have trained themselves to ignore banner advertisements so you might be wasting valuable website real estate.

Instead, provide more valuable content and weave relevant affiliate links into your content, and let your visitors feel that they want to buy instead of being pushed to buy.

3) Have a simple and clear navigation

You have to provide a simple and very straightforward navigation menu so that even a young child will know how to use it. Stay away from complicated Flash based menus or multi-tiered drop down menus. If your visitors don’t know how to navigate, they will leave your site.

4) Have a clear indication of where the user is

When visitors are deeply engrossed in browsing your site, you will want to make sure they know which part of the site they are in at that moment. That way, they will be able to browse relevant information or navigate to any section of the site easily. Don’t confuse your visitors because confusion means “abandon ship”!

5) Avoid using audio on your site

If your visitor is going to stay a long time at your site, reading your content, you will want to make sure they’re not annoyed by some audio looping on and on on your website. If you insist on adding audio, make sure they have some control over it — volume or muting controls would work fine.

If I had to sum it up, into one rule or principle.  KISS – Keep it Simple Stupid. Its the only way to move forward. Once you have mastered the above all you need to do then is rinse and repeat, Keep working on perfecting your niche website designs, and the return on investment will show.
