When you’re designing your website, one of the first things to consider is how you will grab your visitors’ attention. For example, your homepage, header and template are just some of the aspects of your site that you can customize to really leave a lasting impression. You can use animation, parallax scrolling and lightboxes to really wow and woo your visitors so they keep surfing your site. There are so many web design tips and tricks you can easily implement and we’ve compiled some unbelievable Wix websites to help inspire you to take your website to a whole new level.
 

The power of animation

 

Footwear designer, Tamar Shalem, uses the power of animation to really hook her site visitors.  The minute you arrive to her website, you quickly realize it’s not just another shoe store. From an animated header with adorable menu icons, to the snazzy, moving shoes and flashing message indicating her blowout sale, it’s safe to say we won’t forget about this online store.

 
 
 
 
 

Captivating video backgrounds

 

This website, a full service concrete specialist service provider, features a unique video background specific to their business. If you want to make sure your site visitors understand what your business is all about, try adding a video background or a little bit of animation to your website. Be sure to choose media that accurately represents what you do or is vague enough to keep your visitors curious.

 
 
 
 
 

The alluring effect of parallax scrolling

 

Adding dimension to your site is a great way to lure your visitors in.  Take notes on this fashion photography website that incorporated a parallax scrolling effect. Parallax refers to the popular scrolling effect when your website background image moves slower than an image placed in the foreground. Here at Wix, we just can’t get enough of parallax scrolling and this website is just one example of parallax implemented to perfection!

 
 
 
 
 

The thousand word gallery

 

Since images are often far more powerful than words, a beautiful gallery  within your website is an excellent way to demonstrate what you do and capture your visitor’s attention right away. Photographer Joern Pollex artfully uses a gallery to show the breadth of his photography skills. If you don’t have your own images, you can choose from the thousands of images available on Wix.

 
 
 
 
 

The clever duet between text and image

 

Can you make your visitors laugh within seconds of viewing your site? If so, you’re sure to get them interested in you and your brand. This website implemented a brilliant collaboration of text and image to make an instant and lasting impression.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Include high quality images

 

You don’t have to have a photography portfolio to have high quality images. As we’ve stressed, a photo gallery is the ultimate way to appeal to your site visitors.  From an impressive full-screen image on his homepage, to a breathtaking photo gallery, Dory Younes transported us into his world in minutes. Another neat trick? Fixed headers.  Fixed headers stay put at the top of the page, even as your site visitors scroll downwards. This nifty trick is great for your UX, or user experience, since it helps users easily navigate your site.

 
 
 
 
 

The musical header

 

We talked about having a video background or animation that clearly shows off the purpose of your website. On the same token, if you’re a musician, why not greet your site visitors with a taste of your music? Musician Mickey Factz has one of the most creative headers we’ve ever come across. A personal touch like this goes a long way.

 
 
 
 
 

A splash of color

 

This Florida-based beauty salon used a few different elements in their website that make it a total success. From a logo that stays put (and always reverts back to their homepage) to an attractive turquoise overlay, their website is striking and fierce, like a hair salon’s site should be. Bonus? Their informative blog!
