Quality beats everything. This is the single most important thing you need to remember when designing your marketing website. The truth is, there’s no secret formula to a good website. As long as it is functional, relevant, and engaging – it’s already good enough.
But are there any benchmarks which you can follow along when designing your site?
In recent years, the hamburger style menu (aka 3-bar menu) has been gaining popularity in the web design space and is now widely implemented by many of the industry leaders.
Let me prove my point by showing you some concrete examples from the big companies.
As 2015 is coming to an end and 2016 is swiftly approaching, I figured it’d be a good time to share the things that have worked well for me this year plus the 5 lessons I’ve learned from them. Hopefully you’ll find some of the lessons below useful. Let’s dive straight in!
Update: I’ve created a new tutorial showing how to create a header menu in OP 3.0.
If you’ve been using OptimizePress for awhile, then you probably agree with me that the navigation header doesn’t look that great, especially without any custom styling applied.
Fortunately, there’s a workaround for that. All you need is insert a few lines of CSS code and in no time, you’ll be able to design a stunningly looking header just like the big boys.
So yesterday I received an email from a customer asking whether I know of an easy way to have a menu at the very top, on click it would take you down to the right section of the page. Then he showed me a landing page template used by Pat Flynn to sell his ebook.
I quickly replied with step-by-step instructions on how he can do that with OptimizePress 2.0 platform. Later I thought it’d be a great idea for me to share this in my blog as a way to give back to my customers, and of course indirectly showcasing my Author template.
