Christmas is just around the corner and a lot of people have already started spreading Christmas spirits through their websites. How about you? If you haven’t done any preparation yet for your site, don’t worry, you still have time to make some quick changes.
To make the process a bit faster, we have prepared some web design tips to make your website merry during the holidays. So, let’s get started!
Consider holiday color scheme
Try adjusting the colors of your current web design to come up with a shade associated with the holidays without losing your branding. For example, if your brand color is red, you may adjust it to a burgundy red, maroon, or crimson. If it’s blue, try the shade cyan cobalt blue and maybe add some touches of silver. Play with your website’s color scheme and you’ll find how your website can easily carry a unique holiday theme.
Choose eye-catching CTAs
Call To Actions (CTAs) that are holiday inspired are a great way to gather online customers in the Christmas shopping spirit. CTAs like “sweet treats from us to yours”, “12 days of surprises”, “‘tis the season to glam up” and such will definitely catch your website visitors’ attention.
Just as well, don’t forget to put importance in the proper placement of your CTAs on your business website. Put it on your homepage where people can immediately see it. You may also insert it on other high-traffic subpages of your site if you want.
Add creative banners or pop-ups
While some may call it a “call to action”, banners or pop-ups are a good addition to your site. It allows your business website to have more space for images and links. You could use this to highlight special holiday offers or a link to your holiday catalog. It’s great for extra emphasis.
Switch your fonts
For a holiday themed web design, consider choosing unique font designs that are often used during holiday greetings or on holiday decorations. In that way, you can also lift the spirit of the holiday to your consumers. Consider cursive fonts, which is a very popular choice among e-commerce websites.
Update your business logo
You can change your logo by adding some holiday decorations into it. You can either change it into a holiday themed color or add a Santa Claus hat. This is to show your consumers that you are celebrating the holidays with them.
Include holiday offers
Add some holiday offers to your business website. May it be a holiday item, a christmas card, or holiday gift wrappers, it would be a great addition to your site. Just make sure that it is still in line with the brand or product that you are originally selling.
Add holiday themed photos
For the final web design tip, add holiday themed photos. Since you already changed your website color, fonts, and so on, use Christmas themed photos as well. In this way, it will look more put together.
We hope that these web design tips help you redesign your website for the holidays. You can always continually edit your website to accommodate for specific holidays ahead. Don’t forget to create quick changes to your social media pages as well to lift up the spirit of Christmas.
