Dapperhouse is the go-to place to find one of a kind vintage items and vintage inspired crafts.
At a first glance it is easy to see why we chose Dapperhouse for the example site this week. It utilizes plenty of Webs features including:
- Etsy Store for easy product listing and Etsy integration
- Members App to build up their community and encourage visitors to come back with e-mail blasts
- Blog App to keep in touch and communicate with visitors and members
- Links to other stores and websites to help search engine ranking
It also features a very aesthetically pleasing layout and template. These, however, are quite common characteristics of the awesome websites that our users create.
So what makes Dapperhouse stand above the rest of the pack and go beyond the average website?
Ask yourself this: What is the first thing you notice when you visit a website? Any website?
Chances are the first thing your eyes perceive is the website header. Website header is that very top portion of the site that is static (doesn’t change) and is visible on all pages as you browse from one page onto the other. Website header is often referred to as the “face” of a website.
The header is a crucial, yet is often neglected part of a website that can make or break the appeal of a site. A good header is a powerful branding tool and automatically tells visitors what your website is about and draws attention to the content. Good headers do not have to be elaborately designed images. Simple headers can be just as effective as long as they are well thought out.
Knowing this… how does your header compare? Does it capture your visitor’s eyes? Edit your header today!
