The style of a website means the way it looks, the design and layout of the content on the page. The color scheme, the type face, and the logo design. All these are styling elements.
Usually, this is done by the designer who conceptualizes the website. But their concept of design may not fit what you had in mind.
The same is true if you find a website template. It sort of fits what you had in mind. But at the same time, it doesn’t. There are always things that you want to change.
What you need is a prompt, a reference. And then the style of your website comes together. The way you want it.
Style is a matter of taste and preference. What appeals to one does not appeal to another.
How do you get to the point where you can style a website without the expense? You have to use the right tools.
There are a lot of tools available today. Which is the right one? The one that gives you the freedom to choose what you want for your website.
But isn’t this what a designer does? And, not everyone is a designer. You just want to give someone the content and tell them to do it for you. That gets expensive.
If you want to learn how to style a website contact me and I’ll show you how it’s possible to style a website without the expense. What you need is basic knowlege because there is an initial learning curve.
Design tools contained within the website software are made for this purpose. Notice the heading Design Tools with the small highlight added in, this is a Design Tool. It is a plugin that is specifically made to enhance the style of the text.
I can also change the text style and make it a different color:
Change The Text Style
This is done inside the Text Module in the Design section where I can change the color, and the style of the heading. All this is done by selecting the style and the style appears. There’s no magic to it. It’s just one of the many features built into the software used to style a website.
The point of style is to showcase the content in a form that is attractive and pleasing to the visitor. If there is too much print it is tiresome to read. I’m sure you’ve noticed how different life is for us. We now consume larger quantities of information and we are often operating on information overload.
Images are vital to the style of a website. They convey meaning without words. All the images should be compressed and resized before uploading it into the website.
If an image file is too large it will slow the page load time.
Styling is possible with any module. There is no limit to the design you can use. The only thing to avoid is overdoing the style.
You don’t have to follow the trend of styles. They will always change and you’ll find yourself wondering which style is the best style. There isn’t one.
The style can always be altered and the text can change color. Even the background can be changed.
You will stand out from the competition when you start to style a website. It will be your style and not a uniform style that looks like every other website.
Styling and Color Choice
Styling is effective and the choice of color for the style of the website is a matter of personal choice. You can look up the meanings of colors but it comes down to what color resonates with your idea for the website you want to create. All the styling done on this website cost $0.00 because the style elements are built into the software using the Divi Theme.
There are some developers that will tell you this kind of styling is not good for SEO because the content is placed into modules within sections and rows.
The truth is; the content on a web page is contained in dividers which are positioned inside tables of sections and rows. Inside the rows are the modules which contain the content. All web pages have the same structure regardless of the kind of content placed into them.
An ‘expert’ will tell you that you need them to do it for you, and you’re not able to do it. Why? Because they want to charge you for their service to ‘optimze for SEO.’ The way you optimize for SEO is to offer regular topical content directly on point to the subject.
A search engine crawls the website, and if your content is topical and relevant to the search query; your website will be found.
When you style a website Using Divi, which is the same Theme the designers and developers use, you can style your website without the expense.
