Colors for Web Sites
Color can have a profound impact on visitors to your website. The wrong colors can negatively impact your web efforts, while the right colors can trigger positive emotions motivating your visitors to visit your website.
Color can affect how we feel and influence what we think. In general, bright bold colors tend to stir us up, while the softer pastel colors calm and relax us. Responses to colors can vary by age, gender and cultural background.
Colors will affect how a potential buyer reacts to your web site. Carefully select your color scheme for your web site, web header, and ebook cover. Here are some guidelines to help you make good color choices. Bear in mind that these are guidelines, and that there are no hard and fast rules. Just use common sense.
* Consider your audience. For example, if your web site primarily targets men, then you will want to use strong, bold colors. If your target audience is women, then choose soft, pastel colors. If your focus is on children, choose bright, vibrant colors.
* Choose colors that are appropriate for your web site's topic. For example, green may work well for web sites about starting a home business, making money, and reducing debt.
* Keep the number of colors down to two or three, and no more. This does not include photographs which can have a whole range of colors.
* Make sure that all of the colors you use work well together and do not clash.
* Communicate your message with easy-to-read text. Use colors for your text that contrast with the background color so your text is readable. For example, a dark font on a light background is easy to read.
* Consider the mood you want to create. Remember that emotions trigger sales. People buy what they want - not what they need. The list below will show you how colors can affect us in different ways.
