The Importance Of Color, Or : Help Me Choose.

7 replies
Color has never been my thing. Never ask me if this color goes with that one, I won't have a clue.

Color is very important in marketing.

I think it was Perry Marshall who talked about all the money and research Google did on the color of the Adwords interface.

In my mail order days, all the money making programs I sold were on Gold paper. Some one I learned marketing from told me it was because it is the color of, ah, Gold.

I'm not sure that's why, but all my test proved it to be true.

I'm building this site for a hobby, AKA I can't quit IM cold turkey like I thought I could.

Help me pick the color.

I think I'm attached to some version of the current Blue because I like the header and I only have the template in Blue. Easily changed though.

      Thanks.

      Apparently a GD problem. If you don't add the www it goes to the "my site" page.

      The link above works right.

    If you having trouble with your colour combos, try a colour schemer like this one Color Scheme Designer 3

    saves a lot of time.

  • If you have the time and skill, you should test different colors and either poll visitors or compare visitor data on your site.

    you should test different colors
    I agree. I was just hoping for suggestions from people with a better color sense than I have.

    Maybe I should have asked, "What color do you like best, on websites you visit regularly?"

    I personally don't care for the WF Red, but it doesn't bother me.

    Remember the little colored balls that slid back and forth while Google's keyword tool was loading? I loved watching them and at some point I figured out it was because of the colors.
