Less Is More, Right?

Last Update: February 25, 2014

How often have you heard this saying. Honestly, to me it sometimes just didn't make sense. But I have learnt here at WA that the more simple you keep things, the better. And less confusing.

I wanted to share this blog that I've just read,

' How reducing your options can increase your conversions'. Now, I'm not making any money yet, but this will surely help me as I go forward.

What do you think?

Lydia.

It would seem to me to be a balance, I am not sure what that is with regard to the number of posts/ Pages on your web site, I have read that about 30 is a good idea and a combination of video, photos and website info. I want readers to have interesting things to read when they come to my site but at the same time I don't want them to be over whelmed. I have felt that I would put up as much as I feel is pertinent and keep changing things. I keep reading on blogs to be your self and that honesty and sincerity is a big factor, in being successful. So how much info is enough and how much is too much...... I am really interested in this discussion and what others think on the topic, thanks Lydia for posting it.

I don't think you can really have too much content, after all, that is what people are looking for. It's more about the choices you give them. When reviewing a product for example, instead of reviewing ten, keep it to just three. Otherwise it becomes so overwhelming that people don't buy at all. Something to think about. Lydia.

Funny, while this may be true the site the article was posted on was very annoying, too many choices, lol.
The article itself was good and valid. Thanks for sharing it!

I have to say I do not like having to trawl through lots of stuff and find pop ups annoying I would rather see good quality choices than loads of stuff not relevant to what I am looking for

I'm a fan of less is more, I'm creating anything I always step back and look at it and say what don't I need and start trimming. In photos, in websites, in writing, in everything.
