Instead of merely adding images every-time, it is cool to add cinemagraphs and GIFs. They are the beautiful and more attractive combination of images and videos. They do add the fun element to anything.
Better responsive designs and mobile apps
Researches show that most of the users spent browsing the internet through mobile. It will be worst thing to have a website that not responsive. Also, it is found that time spent on apps is 86% which is only 14% for that of browser.
Let’s take an example of Facebook. Since the Facebook app has arrived most of us prefer to use through its app instead of opening it in browser. Same is the case of many other sites like YouTube, Instagram, Twitter etc.
Not only the visuals but the content is also crucial in making a website stand out. The unique and high quality content is the thing that can make the visuals like images and videos come alive. It is the rich content experience that includes full background video, content rich article with pictures integrated into story.
