Thanks to the Internet, a simple Google search for “web fonts” will return hundreds of thousands of results—so which font is best for you? In the words of Frere-Jones’ Nina Stössinger:

“Formulate a job description for the font. You don’t just want to hire anyone.”

Read on for a brief overview of font basics, pairing tips and resources to help you create an irresistible website.

What is Mobile first?

When designing a website, traditionally one would first think about how it would appear and function on a desktop computer and then later consider optimizing it for alternative devices. ‘Mobile First’ is the reverse of that concept and starting with – you’ve got it – mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. While the most common way to approach Web design is from the largest to the smallest screen, Mobile First suggests that the designs will be stronger when working from the smallest platform to the largest. With more and more people reaching for their phone for browsing and shopping online, it’s essential to have a mobile optimized website. So, why not start there?

Increase the Functionality of your Website with these Apps

New Web Apps

In this Web App discussion, we discuss 11 of the best apps to increase functionality on your MyWebsite.

BlastCasta

This app allows you to incorporate any RSS feed – an automatically updated list of stories from a website – into one of your Web pages. You can place your feed in the main body of your page, or incorporate it into a sidebar. All you need to provide is the Web address of the RSS feed in question – visit the parent website, and look for a RSS button, which you’ll probably find on its news or blog page, in the site’s footer or under Contacts.

Blipstar

If your business operates a number of stores, this app allows you to add a store locator to your website. You’ll need an account at blipstar.com, but it’s free for smaller businesses with 25 stores or fewer. Once done, input your contact details and your site visitors can find their nearest store using their zip code, address or place name.

Boost Your Sales with a Compelling Shop Design

It is said that websites have approximately three seconds to grab the attention of a visitor. Therefore, it is important to focus your customers’ attention on the goal of your shop. Unfortunately, many online merchants make the mistake of cluttering their website with too much information. Avoid this bad habit with the following design tricks.

The perfect home page

The home page of your online store is like your shop window, so you do not want to cram all of your products together into it. Use the home page to set the scene for shopping, using high-quality images. Present the products in different product pages and categories. By doing so, you can create a prominent space to advertise individual products as promotional goods or the best sellers of your shop.

Match products and target group

You should always keep two important factors in mind while designing your shop: your products and your target group. This means that the design of an online shop for haute couture, for example, should project exclusivity, but if you are selling children’s toys, then you should create a playful design with bright colors.

Taking Your Blog to the Next Level with MyWebsite

With the ability to attract repeat site visitors, drive engagement and deliver transparency, corporate blogs have become an instrumental element to a successful online presence. A blog that is integrated within an existing website platform is even more valuable as it keeps visitors on the site rather than deterring them away from it, and only requires one set of login credentials for the administrator.

While the ability to leverage a blog has been available within 1&1’s MyWebsite tool for quite some time, we have recently enhanced its features and capabilities so SMBs can present a more professional, interactive and attractive platform.
