FLAVOURTISM - What's this with the Colour Thingy?
Although we thought it would be fun to give our visitors a choice of colour, there is a serious side to it.
Did you know that colour has a powerful influence on the human brain? It takes only 90 seconds for visitors to make a subconcious judgement on your website with 90% of that based on colour alone. It is also interesting to know that whilst men see red as 'red', women relate to colours more visually, so to women red = cherry, yellow = lemon etc, hence our use of flavours.
DID YOU KNOW that just by changing the colour of buttons from green to red has shown that conversions can increase significantly.Here are colour preferences based on gender. As you can see, we cover a majority of user's favourite preferences:
...and there are other advantages too!
We have mentioned that page loading time is crucial when it comes to successful webdesign, so using our colour selection function can work to our advantage.
No one does'nt mind waiting if it's their choice. Their first view of your landing page will intrigue them, then they have the luxury of making a decision. This all takes time! - While they are contemplating, then finally making their choice, you can use this valuable time to preload data heavy items such as video or movies ready to load for the next page they visit ;-) Preloading is a powerful technique used by web designers that downloads website elements in the background, so they will be available instanty when the visitor visits corresponding pages.
There is no reason why you cannot use this technique througout the whole website, staying one step ahead. This can be significanty increased of you have a reasonable idea on your visitor's predicted path.
