It's important to get the right balance of site content

Most company web sites fail to meet the combined expectations of Board Members, the IT Manager and marketing gurus. Neither do they foster a community of wealthy clients eager to seek a company's services. Exhaustive research by Apostrophe Consultant's has revealed the ideal proportions of screen real estate content to use in web page design. Remember, a company's perceived attractiveness is about so much more than content. We offer the following hot tips to help you get your message across:

COMPANY PROFILE
Always include a page that helps the Executive Management navigate the complex internal bureaucracy of their company. Be sure to emphasise today's rising stars. General users also appreciate reading about confidential internal policy issues on the public website.

CONTACT INFORMATION
To maximise advertising click-throughs and avoid spam, bury contact info on a obscure page. But be sure to include an informative email address such as complaints@company.com.nz

LANGUAGE
The Internet is the new medium of commerce so be sure to include plenty of marketing lingo. UPPERCASE LETTERS MUST BE USED ON CLUTTERED PAGES FOR EMPHASIS.

LOGO
Logos cost your firm a fortune in design fees. So be sure to use huge, bold logos at every opportunity on your website. Normal icons are OK, but don't forget you can also use semi-transparent backgrounds, spinning 3D animations and buggy Javascript floatovers that follow the cursor.

NAVIGATION
Remember, people are stupid - they need sidebar, tab, footer, text body and image map links to help them navigate your website. But they also appreciate a challenge - so don't use separate colours for visited and unvisited links.

GRAPHICS AND ANIMATION
Make sure your pages are brim full with high resolution stock photos. Models are so much more attractive than real people. Use animations that launch automatically without a user's request, they save users having to use repetitive mouse clicks.

PRESS ROOM
Journalists are busy people and will appreciate a direct link to objectively-written press releases that they can directly copy and paste into their articles.

PRIVACY
Don't worry about privacy issues. Gather every scrap of information Javascript will allow you to, and then some. Store it. You never know when it might come in useful.

TAG LINES
Include a vague or jargonistic tagline on the home page. For an oil company, political party, government department or environmental group, this might be something like "Striving to make the world a better place".

TIME STAMPS
If your site is not regularly updated, omit any dates. This will fool the reader into thinking it is more current than it actually is. If your site is regularly updated then be sure to include hours, minutes and seconds (see reason above).

USER INTERFACE
Avoid horizontal scrolling at screen resolutions of 1600 x 1200 pixels, it annoys power users. Express yourself using a variety of fonts and popup windows.
