A clean and clutter-less site will direct website traffic where you want them to go when you want them to go there. So take control of your TeamUnify site and Keep It Simple!

When building a TeamUnify Website there are a multitude of graphic options to customize and turn on. However, one of the oldest sayings still rings true..."Keep It Simple".

 

Adding too much to your website can create distractions and keep potential members away. You can confuse your guests and you may lose traffic because they don't know where to go, what to read, and how to interact with your website. To help keep your site simple follow these rules: 

 

1. Use a Simple or Textured Background Image

2. Hide Items You Do Not Update Regularly - News/Events/Sponsors or Partners

3. Keep Your Colors Simple and Coordinated

4. Remove Duplicate Buttons and Links

5. Turn Off/On Your Swim-A-Thon at the Appropriate Times

The Results:

When comparing a site that has followed these instructions and one that has not, we can clearly see the difference and the appeal. A clean and clutter-less site will direct website traffic where you want them to go when you want them to go there. So take control of your TeamUnify site and Keep It Simple!
