You know what makes me drop a website almost immediately?
I’ll tell you… it’s the graphics. If the graphics are ugly, then I close the page. If the graphics take too long to load, I close the page. If the graphics are different from the branding of the site…
You guessed it. I close the page.
The term “beauty is only skin deep” definitely does not apply to the graphic design of your website. Your pictures need to look beautiful to the human eye and need to be beautiful (small, standardized) for modern browsers.
They also need to be modern. New is beautiful on the internet – so if you don’t have some trick that’s been used recently then your graphics are ugly to almost anyone who visits your website.
So what can you do?
Well, the time honored tradition is to learn Photoshop. Which is expensive (the package itself and any courses you might find), time consuming and honestly, it’s only really good for people who rely on graphics design for their primary income.
What people like us need is a simple, quick solution that offers not only small, high quality pictures and graphics but that allows us to do it quickly. Ourselves. Right?
There are lots of programs that offer convenience and tools, but it’s a jungle out there and most of them lack a lot of the critical features that modern internet marketers really need.
So, with that in mind… we’re preparing a list of the best and most modern tools to help your website get a second chance; because as Pete Rose said “If somebody is gracious enough to give me a second chance, I won’t need a third.”
And with beautiful graphics, neither will you.
