The market for web developers is wide open these days. If only we could say the same about the pathway to that career.
If you’re not already an experienced coder, it can be difficult to
get things rolling. A four-year college degree or technical school?
Sure, if you’ve got the money. What about web tutorials? A cheaper
option for sure, but the internet being the internet, there’s a good
reason for you – and prospective employers – to be skeptical about most
of the training you’ll find out there.
Still, there are trustworthy learning options out there. The Complete Web & Mobile Developer Bundle Ft. Rob Percival is one of them, combining the rigor of a college course with the easy pace of online teaching.

Any ecommerce business owner knows that their product pages have to drive conversions in order to run a successful store. But knowing exactly how to design and develop that perfect product page is a challenge in and of itself. Web development company in NYC, Huemor, shares 4 tips for designing the perfect ecommerce product page.
- It’s all about the visuals: The first step to designing the perfect product page is perfecting how people see your products. High-resolution product images in a real-life setting gives customers an idea of what your product looks like, how to use it, and what they can expect from it. Visitors should be able to zoom into the fabric to see stitches and material patterns clear as day, trapping them into a visual foray that will hold their attention on your product page. Video can be even more powerful than still images.
- A striking arrangement: People don’t read—they scan. You should arrange your page’s layout so that the most essential elements fall within an F shape on the page. It’s common convention to put images on the left side and text on the right, but you should test several variations before you commit to one. More importantly, don’t neglect the padding and white space between elements on your page—white space reduces the amount of information people need to process, which means they have more energy to investigate your products.
- Words matter: Product descriptions are often overlooked, but they’re just as important as your visuals. You should experiment with the tone and feel of the description—even if you think a fun or witty description will convert better, it’s possible that a more utilitarian description will. Always be testing.
- Engaging features: Automating the customer experience not only saves you time, but it can also make you more money. Personalized item recommendations, behavior-based pop-ups, or even small animations on links and text can go a long way towards creating a more engaging, friendly experience on your store. Just be sure that these animations add to the customer experience instead of distracting from your products. Animations are feedback, not the main feature.
Cultivating the perfect product page is a science, but equipped with
the tips above, your products will finally get the spotlight they need
to shine and rake in those sales.
