Here you can find 7 ideas how to decorate your website or blog for Holidays.
Why even bother with decorating website?
Updating a website can have several advantages:
- Attracts new visitors or encourage old visits to visit the site.
- Website become more active.
- It’s great for SEO. Updating your homepage lets Google know that you are an active site.
The decision to decorate page or not (and how much) is primarily yours – depending on the content of the page, visitors and your preferences.
1 | Welcome your visitors with warm wishes for the holidays
Welcome visitor on your home page. Be sure to write down something really nice, something you really want to wish your visitors. Used phrases are not so good.
2 | Switch to a Christmas-themed slider
If you have a slider on your page then change it to something little bit more festive. Be sure that image is high quality and appropriate for your visitors.
3 | Put a festive graphic in the corner of your website
If you really want minimal decorations on your page, then just add something small – e.g. icon to the slider. You can also use icons/graphics in sidebar or footer so that they will be visible on every page.
4 | Change the background
You can also add or change your page background. But be carefoul that background will not be disturbing.
5 | Replace icons with festive one
If you have icons on the page, you can replace them with more festive one – if this is appropriate. Icons shouldn’t lose their original meaning, they should look nice together and shouldn’t be to loud (unless this is your purpose).
6 | Publish festive content
One of the ways is to add festive content. If you have a blog, you can prepare a festive blog post (e.g. festive makeup, a recipe for the best holiday cookies, ideas for decorating a home, DIY projects for the whole family…). This depends on the topics on your blog and your readers.
7 | Decorate your newsletter
If you are sending newsletter, you can decorate it with some festive banners or just nice photo.
For me, less is more. Something small and tastefully can make a website really festive and still nice. What about you, do you like festive decorated websites?
