Spruce up your Website for Spring! - Part 1

WebHornet users have been asking for ideas to jazz up their websites.  So over the next couple of weeks we will be providing some tips on sprucing up your site!  This post covers Picking Website Colors, Template Styling, and Bringing your site to life with Great Photos!

Tip 1 - Picking Website Colors
If you need color inspiration for your website, we recommend visiting Colour Lovers (http://colourlovers.com/).  This is a community of people sharing color ideas.  Their search tools allow you to search color palettes.  If you find a palette you like, copy the HEX colors and use this in your WebHornet Template Styling.

Tip 2 - Template Styling
After selecting your color palette, use the Template Styling tools to implement your background colors and font colors. Watch this useful video for step-by-step instructions on Template Styling - Style Regions.

Tip 3 - Bring your Website to Life with Great Pictures
A picture is worth a 1000 words!  Great photos help bring your website to life.  When we first started building websites, good graphics were hard to come by.  You had to spend big dollars to purchase great stock photos.  Well today, there are stock photo sites that license high quality photos for your website at VERY reasonable rates.  Try some of these sites to find photos:  istockphoto.com, bigstockphoto.com


Reminder: Hornet Helper assistance is available!    If you would prefer WebHornet to do the sprucing work for you, purchase Hornet Helper hours from your WebHornet Account (webhornet.com/login) and contact us via the support form.
