Health websites occasionally have structural problems with their basic construction. This may be because employees are so focused and concentrated on their jobs that they don’t have time to do much with the website. Or it might be because people with health issues are a bit of a captive audience. Regardless, if you own or operate any kind of health-related website, now is the time to tidy up the edges of your format and get a nice clean interface going. In other words, it’s time to make your health website nice and healthy!
Visual and Social Material
Your first consideration these days is going to be on the level about visual and social material. Text is great. Text is informative. And text is easy to skim over. And not exciting, in the least, if there are just gobs of it with no easy way to know what the text is about. That said, don’t be scared to check out tips for health visuals and social media that other health sites are willing to present. This typically means that you’ll be getting a primer in the basics of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and how to add strong visual content to each of these sites. There are even applications that will automate a lot of this process for you once you get them set up initially.
Navigation is another very important aspect of a healthy website. If people can’t figure out how to get around in the pages, they’ll just leave. Also, it’s important these days to make sure that you can navigate on browsers, tablets, and mobile phones, because you never know how people are going to reach your site. Research blog templates that will help you do this. They are getting updated constantly, and are becoming easier to work with almost on a weekly basis. Pretty soon, all of the formatting and navigation techniques will be almost automatic!
Easy Feedback Channels
Another important aspect of a website, and especially a health website, is that users and browsers can contact you, the web administrator, or any of the people at your company. This means you need to have listings of email addresses and phone numbers, or maybe just a built in message system so that it’s as easy as possible, maybe even just a click or two, for anyone to directly contact the person they want. Often this is going to be in the “About Us” or “Contact Us” section of the website. It should be clean, coherent, and easy to use regardless of how the person got there. To avoid spam, there are several message spam filters that are available for use in personal blogs as well.
