Example Site Wednesdays: ABM Window Cleaning

Thank goodness it’s Wednesday because that means that we get to show off another excellent example site. This week, the spotlight is on ‘ABM Window Cleaning’, with their straightforward, yet effective site design inspired by the services offered by the company.

Check out how effectively ‘ABM Window Cleaning’ organizes their information on their homepage!

A lot of content on the first page is usually a double edged sword.  Text heavy homepage can provide a lot of useful information, however, it also runs the risk of having too much content for visitors to sift through.  Thus, remember to place  and organize your information in ways that it can easily be  ready and  located. ABM’s site is a wonderful example of how to communicate clearly with site visitors through clever text formatting and organizing using content boxes.

The site owner also makes great use of the drop-down navigation by creating an easy to use navigation bar as well as these other Webs features:

  • Contact Form to provide a quick and efficient way for customer contact.
  • Testimonials to showcase satisfied customer feedback and build confidence in potential customers.
  • Custom Domain Name for that professional look, and to help with search engine ranking.

Not sure if you communicate clearly? Try the 5 second test. Show your website to someone that has never seen it before and ask them how they can contact you. If the tester can’t answer the question within first 5 seconds, might be a good idea to revamp your design.

If you think your site is just as awesome as this one, leave us a comment and who knows, maybe you’ll see it here next week.

In the meantime, stay tuned and happy site building!

    I work really hard to make my site look fun and organized. It’s a blog and I try to write every day. (sometimes it’s really hard to think of a topic) I made the site mainly because I love to entertain people and make them laugh, so having it in the spotlight would be so great. Please consider me!

    My site, The Addiction and Treatment Blog, has been named one of the top 50 best blogs dealing with addiction by nursingschools.net and has been reviewed and recommended by The Kindle Blog Report. It utilizes many of Webs’ excellent apps and is becoming a very popular blog/social networking site for helping professionals and people in recovery. I would love to have it featured on Example Site Wednesdays. Thanks!!!

    The websites shown are really good! Making websites is definitely not the easiest thing to do as it takes a lot of time, creativity and most importantly TIME!

    My site is for city moms and meant to jumpstart their social lives again by giving them useful info about city events and by helping them meet other moms in their area.

    You should definitely check it out! It’s is my second baby aside from my son and even HE has contributed! If you like moms, you’ll like my site!

    Aspiring Litigators of America (ALA) is an association exclusively designed for scholars throughout the nation who are interested in pursuing careers in the legal field. The association will have weekly meetings with its most active members in our expected headquarters located at Lehigh Valley Academy in Bethlehem, PA. During these weekly meetings, members will learn about the different fields of law, discuss current legal news and topics, create and participate in mock trials, research past cases in our nation’s history and decide if the rulings and convictions set forth by the court were unconstitutional, and possibly have an opportunity to meet local attorneys and ask them questions about their occupation or just about law in general.
    The ALA’s website surpasses the expected qualifications that must be met to be featured, by all means and indefinitely possesses the degree of quality a website needs in order to be featured. The ALA displays a wide variety of different pages including: Home, About Us, Spread the Word, Chapters, Members, Upcoming Events, Photos, Links, and a Buzzworthy App for Legal News/Topics. The ALA would greatly appreciate being featured in next week’s edition of Example Site Wednesdays.

    Hello All,

    I enjoy reading example site Wednesdays, but I have noticed something. Since I have been with Webs (4 weeks now)most if not all of the sites featured have been service industry oriented. Now, CONGRATULATIONS to all previously featured and yet to be featured sites. However, this seems to be a bit one sided. Webs is about growing sites and communities. This cannot happen completely if only one type of site is featured. I came to this conclusion after I considered my own site and after reading the posts by other members. Many members have entertainment type or inspirational type sites. In my 4 weeks of experience, I cannot recall any of these sites being featured. Now, I am SURE that they have been, before I was an active member. I understand that WEBS existed LONG before my site. Now, I found a scholarly article which discusses what Americans do online. I am SURE that other countries have similar statistics. I love all other countries, so if you find an article/site with similar statistics for your country please link them to this post. Anyway, it says that social media and games dominate a person’s time. So, social media sites and gaming sites are valid enough (not saying that Webs doesn’t validate social media and gaming sites) to be featured sometimes. Here is the link to the full article with statistics:

    http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/online_mobile/what-americans-do-online-social-media-and-games-dominate-activity/

    Anyway I am looking forward to seeing a little variety on Wednesdays in the near future.

    Best,
    Mz RyDOEM
