It takes a lot of hard work to attract lots of traffic to your website. But if you plan on launching a solid marketing campaign either on your own or with the help of an online agency, you should take a good look at your website design first or at least think about your plans regarding your web design if you haven't developed your site yet. Think about hundreds or thousands of people heading to your site as a result of your marketing efforts but end up being disappointed with the bland design. A unique web page design creates that wow factor but you might feel hopeless in coming up with such a design even if you know a thing or two on how to make a website. Good design takes a lot of thought and more importantly, plenty of inspiration.
The good news is that finding a source of inspiration isn't very difficult because there are plenty of impressive-looking websites on the Internet. A good start would be to look for a reputable web design service and check the portfolio. You should be able to access various links pointing to a number of sites that the company designed. Some web design companies may already have a fancy design for their homepage to convince potential clients in hiring the service.
Some blog sites also like to share links to interesting website designs so try to look for these blogs and subscribe to them and you might encounter a design style that can fit your website content. If you are lucky, you might find a template or Adobe Flash template that you can use as a starting point for implementing the cool design to your site.
Remember that a good and unique web page design isn't just about the visuals. Some of the nicely designed sites are backed up with some complex codes and scripts that drive the animations, transitions and other neat elements. This means that you can further improve the design of your website just by looking for these scripts. Try adding various scripts to your site and the overall site experience can be unique even if you decide to use a template that doesn't stand out. Remember, eye-catching webpage designs do not always have to be highly artistic. Some designs can be very minimal but highly functional.
It is totally okay to make a website out of inspiration of another website as long as you do not blatantly copy the whole design. It is even better if you look for multiple websites and bookmark each of them so you can take the greatest elements of these sites to create something far more unique. Just make sure that your planned design fits your site's theme well and you should be fine.
