Example Site Wednesday: Jerielng.com

In a lot of ways, websites are like books. They tell the story of a person, business, or hobby and they take a lot of work to create.  Our example site this week was made by someone skilled in both fields. Jerielng.com is the website of Jeriel Ng, an up and coming author, who uses his website as a central hub of information for his fans. Check out the site for yourself:

This is another example of a website that takes a minimalistic approach to website design. The top navigation bar looks clean and crisp by organizing all vital links with the help of a drop-down menu.

In addition to simple to navigate site layout, Jeriel uses these great Webs features to jazz it up:

  • Blogs App is used to keep in touch with fans and post interesting updates. Remember adding a blog app to your website is a great way to showcase your personality.
  • Biography page is used to let website visitors learn more about the author.  Did you know adding your picture to the About page can increase sales?
  • Contact Form is used to provide a simple way to lets users get in touch.

Jeriel’s minimalistic design is not only easy to look at, but it also makes it easy for visitors to navigate the page and is keeps the content as the center of attention. Try simplifying your site to get your visitors to focus on the important things on your site.

Another great idea that Jariel utilizes: proudly showcasing social pages on his website. Jariel has a Facebook Fan page for his business that is showcased in the sidebar of the website.

What is a Facebook Fan page?

Not to be confused with your profile page, fan pages are public pages that many businesses use to have a presence on Facebook. Instead of connecting you with “friends,” Pages amass “fans” that you can keep in contact with. The biggest benefit of having a page is that it is indexed by Google and it available to view even if you are not logged into Facebook. This makes promoting the page a whole lot easier. Another great thing about pages is that pages are much more customizable than profiles.  Learn More.

Congrats to Jeriel for such an awesome site! That’s it for this week’s example site, if you liked it or if you want to be considered for a future example site, leave a message in the comments.

Until next time,

Happy site building!

    I appreciate the clean look of the site you have featured. The site is not over crowded and easy to navigate.

    I would like to have my site considered for the feature. I feel our site is also clean and simple in design.

    I like what you said about putting a picture in your profile. Basically, sales increase. That does make sense.

    Who would want to buy anything from a faceless profile.

    I mean no offense to anyone but when i viewed this site i was sorely disappointed not only in the site but in webs choice of sites to have on the Wednesday feature site.
    I found the site in it’s self to be good, however what hurt me the most is, they took a fantastic template and literally destroyed it making it into something not even inviting – i love this template and a site that uses it really well is http://www.hostagemusick.com/ – this is not my site, but boy! have these guys done a good job at using this template and creating a site worth visiting.
    I mean no offense to the owner of the website displayed in this Wednesday blog edition at all – but sorry guys even though i think your site is GREAT! I think you stuffed a already great looking template completely up!, and as a developer myself – i would personally appreciate someone being so forward and honest to me as i am being to you????
    If you want to criticize or compliment my site please feel free as it will only help me improve my site either way, hears the address http://www.uchatsocial.com

    Hello. Nice site.
    I also think my site should definitely be considered for the example site Wednesday. Webcloud (www.webcloud.webs.com) has over 230 members and offers and community of support and modifications to our members. We have a custom template and utilize almost all of Webs applications. Ranging from forums to a blog and videos.
