Christmas is fast approaching. Content is very important for websites and everyone wants to give their website a facelift to get in line with the festive period.
So, What are the do’s and don’ts?
Things that work for your website
Change your overall colour scheme. The traditional colours for Christmas are red, green and silver.
Make sure you change your banner (header) at the top of your page to match your website.
Add an ornament or snowflake .
Have fun with your website. Make sure you use the service of a graphic designer to make sure all the changes look as professional as can be.
Have a look at your social media icons. Give the twitter bird a Christmas hat. Inject some festive spirt to your logo by adding a red bow or adding a pine tree to it.
Things that you should avoid for your website
Don’t add a Christmas jingle to your website.
Adding a Christmas soundtrack will not only be annoying for the users but also add to the loading times of your website.
Avoid excessive use of animations. Having too much such as snow falling across your home page will result in users leaving to a less busy one.
We hope this is useful, and we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year
