Choosing an appropriate template for a niche website is not an easy task. There are hundreds of considerations to keep in mind. You must consider each and every thing according to the kind of template you wish to make.
If you want to make a template for an electronics site, we have compiled a list for you to help you to choose the best template for an Electronic Items website.
The first thing you do before you start off in selecting your template is look at style guides. Style guides for electronic themed sites are the best options. There are many theme templates for niche websites available online, try to go through as many as you can.
This will give you a fair idea of what kind of template to make use of with respect to the style, font and color scheme. You can even design a style guide for yourself and use that as a reference for the kind of template you want to make.
The most prominent thing about a website anyone chooses to visit is the color scheme. Electronics websites used to use very bright and bold colors like orange and yellow with black. Nowadays, electronics themed sites use bright yet sober colors like white and blue. You can take inspiration from other sites as well to put up an appropriate color scheme. Try to not make the background colors of the website too dark so they strain the eyes or it becomes difficult to locate content.
Fonts for electronic sites were also very funky a while ago. Nowadays, most designs are very sober and easy on the eyes and this includes fonts. The font for your website must be big and bold, it should also be visible from a distance so the viewers don’t have to strain their eyes to see what you are trying to say. The color of the font must contrast with the color scheme. Using black, dark grey or blue on any shade of white is appropriate as these colors will be visible.
Make sure the template you choose is customizable. This is because even the best templates you choose might fall short somewhere. For example, it is perfectly styled with a great color scheme and content placement but you figure the font could be a bit better. In that case, it would be easy for you to go and change the font to your liking. This will be helpful if you want to make minor changes in the future as well. Bear in mind, though, that just because the template is customizable, that does not mean you change the entire thing from head to toe. Make some minor adjustments but keep the essence of the template intact.
It should go without saying that the kind of content you put on your website must be simple to understand and appealing for the user. If you have the kind of items not everyone uses, it is best to include a blog which answers these questions. For example, if you’re selling a magnetic stirrer, you should put up a blog saying ‘What is a magnetic stirrer’ so interested people could go through it.
Other than that, make sure your content is placed well. Show a feature video on your homepage or include a picture and text which shows what your website is endorsing in simple words and maybe a slogan. Keep the menus easy to locate and if anyone wishes to buy, give details about the item and the cost as well.
