Strikingly is a simple website builder to use, but you might want help to get started.
Strikingly is an easy website builder for many to use. The advantage of a strikingly website over other builders such as WordPress, is the lack of site maintenance required and it’s easy to update yourself. Strikingly deals with all the technical aspects, leaving you to concentrate on the website itself. Managing and updating your site is also easy.
Building your initial website though can be a different thing. Although easy, it can be time consuming. Additionally, a good layout and design is not always easy to achieve. A good, professional look is very important. Strikingly has lots of great templates, sections and widgets, which helps for sure. Mind you, they also need to be customised to the look of your site..
It’s not just about creating a beautiful looking website, though. You also need to provide a great user experience. Visitors to your site must instantly see exactly what they are looking for. People have very short attention spans on the Internet these days. They should be immediately engaged and want to scroll on and navigate your website for more.
Therefore, it is also imperative that the site is easy to read, that relevant content sticks out and is clearly visible. The viewer must be able to focus on the parts of the page that relate to their enquiries.
Website navigation is also important. If visitors want to read more, continue on and look through your site, or have decided to purchase then they want to easily see how to do this. Call to action buttons must be clear and prominent, and internal page ads and button links much easily direct people to other relevant information or promote alternatives.
