Creating a great website is essential. There are so many websites on the market that you really have to have a visually stunning website that draws in customers. Many sites want to include video, sound, and social media into their websites. There are easy ways to integrate these aspects into your website. Before adding any additional media to your site, remember that sometimes too much is just as bad as not enough. Although you want to make it easy for any users to access your social media and stay up to date, you do not want to go overboard. Additionally, too much video and sound, especially those that begin automatically, can make a potential customer leave your site before they have had a chance to really engage with your company.
Social media is one of the easiest to integrate into your website. Most social media sites have an easy button that you can include on your page. You can copy and paste the coding into your page, or you can rely on you web designer to do the same. Additionally, you can include streaming updates from your social media on the side of your site. However, you will want to ensure that you are active on these sites. Otherwise, it will not make sense to include a stagnant account on your page. You want to entice users to visit your social media and share it with their network. Similarly, you want to make it easy to share things found on your site. There is easy, already coded buttons you can find online that will allow users to share information found on your site across multiple media.
Sharing video on your site is not for all businesses. However, if you have video about your company or industry that you would like to include on your website, there are easy ways to do it. YouTube videos are the easiest to share. You can upload your own videos to YouTube and then embed the video on your page. You will not need any coding. Alternatively, you can use coding to do an inline video or utilize a plug in. You can also hyperlink to the video. If coding is not your forte and you do not want to use a developer, there is website software that can do this for you.
One thing to remember when adding music to your site is to adhere to any copyright and licensing issues. However, if you sell music or have music associated with your company, you will want to have options to stream it on your site. Some companies opt for embedded background music that will play as soon as a person lands on your page. Embedded music has several coding options and do not always work well with all browsers. Additionally, many users do not like automatic music and prefer MIDI files playing only when a link or button is clicked, which can be done with a simple code.
