Your Website Design – Text and Background Color Matter

What is an effective color combo for a website?

It always surprises me that I still see website using dark backgrounds and light text.

Marketers agree that black (very dark) text on a white (very light) background is the way to go. This has been the proven tested strategy for quite a while now, but again, I still see websites that have very dark backgrounds with light text.

Another ineffective color combination, according to MarketingExperiments.com, is a grey background with dark grey or black text. And, red is a negative color.

Your website, whether a small business, home business owner, or author, should be easy to read and easy on the eyes. Simple always works best.

If you have a dark background why not switch your theme to a lighter color. And, be sure to use dark text that's easily readable.
