When it comes to creating a website, the content is not the only item of importance. A website banner is the first thing a reader or buyer sees when they land on your site. So, having an eye catching header is absolutely essential. After all, you want to make a really good first impression right?
If your site has a standard header with no life or personality, chances are you are losing more than you are gaining. Think of your average reader as an 11 year old child. The fact is, that most children are enthused by colors and images more than words. And for many adults this is true as well. Our internet attention spans are pretty small. Usually when we visit a website or blog, we can get a feel for what the site represents in only a few seconds. This is the reason why it is even more important to focus on making the right first impression through a custom header graphic
Here are some examples of unique and eye catching blog and website headers that were created specifically for the client or business by working with them to discuss their needs.
An eye catching website header is the most effective tool that you can offer potential customers in order to draw them to your site and keep them there for an extended period of time. It will set you apart from the rest and be a vehicle to bringing in more traffic to your site! And that is really what we want in the end – more readers, more subscribers, more clients.
The header on your site is yours. That means it represents who you are and what your company stands for. It is a good idea to makes sure that the header on your website has your style and personality tied into it in some way. That does not mean that if you love lime green, you header should be that color. But incorporating a few elements of your taste and style is always a great idea. It simply means that you need to create a header that says YOU without overburdening or scaring the customers away. You want to stand out above the rest – above your competition. Your website header might be the difference between a potential client choosing you or the other guy.
Hiring a graphic designer or artist to create a custom website banner is pertinent to your online success. It may be your best investment. They have an eye for color and design and will tie in those specific details that will help promote your brand, your purpose, and the message you are trying to convey. The chance that people will look at your header, read your message, and leave your site because of a lack of cohesiveness is a huge possibility that you want to avoid at all costs.
It is also a time saver to have your website header designed by a professional. There is a lot of time spent in locating images, matching colors, and finding just the right font to make sure that the header fits your message. Why waste that time when you can just outsource to someone who knows the work involved and likely has some shortcuts that you are not aware of.
As you take a look at your site and before you contact a designer think about your message, what you want to convey and how you want to convey it. All of these aspects will be beneficial for the designer as they create your custom website header.
There are many people without an eye for graphic design who try on their own to create a header, and, usually it shows. Don’t let this be you. You are better off spending the extra money to have a professional do it for you!
