1. When You’re Out Of Ideas, Stick With Tried and True Designs!
There is nothing wrong with following a typical layout once in a while! You can waste hours and hours of time trying to be experimental, and end up with nothing. One thing that you might find annoying while working with WordPress website is that they take a long time to design, and to implement, because the web builders are a little clunky. The WordPress web design tools and builders are typically a little buggy, and generally run slowly, so to save time and aggravation you want to stick with simple tried-and-true layouts.
The Grid Layout
When you’re having a lot of trouble trying to figure out what the layout for your section should be, here’s a simple fall back: divide the section into two columns. In the first column, add your heading and your text. Then set the two columns to equal height, and set the background of your second column to a relevant image to the information in first column. So you have the text on one side, and image to the other side. Make sure that your section stretches out to full width and then in the next section, copy that same layout but reverse the columns left or right to achieve an almost checkerboard effect. This is a typical layout that will always look good. Learn how to use it effectively!
2. Don’t Forget The Page Speed of Your WordPress Web Design
Another pro tip for your WordPress web design is to always consider page speed. One problem with WordPress websites and themes is that they are usually clunky and slow, and that means lower conversions, and worse user experience. Every time you add a theme to your WordPress installation, make sure to run it through a page speed tester and see how it compares to an empty WordPress installation. If it’s extremely slow, you might want to get a refund on the theme because nobody is going to use that website! The statistics on bounce rate show that after three seconds of loading, your website’s bounce rate increases by more than 100%, that means double the number of users that you would’ve lost, you have now lost.
3. Get Approval On Your Designs Before You Waste Your Time on WordPress Web Design
One more pro tip! You can spend tons of time and effort on a design, hand it over to the client, and wow! They hate it! What you like, is not what everyone likes. Remember this because it will save you valuable time. Your taste is not the same as everyone else’s, so always get approval on your designs early, and follow up with your clients to make sure that you’re on the right track. This will save you tons of time, effort and frustration.
