So while it’s commonsense for a product page to offer plenty of photos, photo-free service pages and service websites are sadly all too common.
The web designers and businesses themselves just don’t know what to take photos of. So they either omit them altogether, or use cheesy clip art, low-grade stock photos, unpersuasive graphs or technical charts.
Instead of using any of those, invest the time and effort to get and use the following five photos and you’ll inspire greater confidence and conversions on the part of your online visitors. Here’s how to stop requiring them to buy sight unseen.

Every client/vendor relationship is based on a set of expectations, whether they’re stated or not.
SOWs and MSAs
A Statement of Work (SOW) is usually a document that accompanies yet another document, often referred to as a Master Services Agreement (MSA). They’re the Lenny and Squiggy of legal agreements. The MSA is usually the governing document for the entire relationship, while the SOW usually deals with the specifics of a single project or scope of work.
A SOW typically addresses such things as:
Requested Services—Describing what the project actually is.
Project Phase Descriptions—Detailing how many phases, and what goes into them.
Project Duration and Milestones—Estimating how long the project will take and what milestones occur along the way.
Resource Hours—How many hours are allocated to each phase.
Billing Rates—What you’re charging for each practitioner in your company.
Proposed Tasks & Deliverables—What you’ll do and deliver, and when.
Commencement and Completion Dates—When you’ll start, and if all goes well, when you’ll finish.
Service Fees—How much you’re charging for the entire engagement.
Payment Schedule and Terms—How much you’ll get paid, and when.
Listing of Representatives—Who the primary players are on each side, or at least what their roles are.
Have you ever wanted your users to click your links, but didn’t know how to get them to act? When some designers run into this problem they’re tempted to use the words “click here” on their links. Before you give in to the temptation, you should know that using these words on a link can affect how users experience your interface.
Make Your Links Click with Users Without Saying “Click Here”
Next time you find yourself thinking about using the words “click” or “here” on your links, remember the effects it’ll have on the user experience. The challenge is to make your links say “click here” without actually saying “click here”, and there are many ways to do this. It will take some thought and effort on your part, but in the end, your users will benefit with a better experience of your interface. You can take the easy way out and use “click here” on your links, or you can spend some time to find the right phrasing for your links that’ll click with your users. The choice is yours.
In today’s age of instant gratification, making users wait too long for your application to load is a user experience issue. If users get the feeling that your application loads too slow, they’ll grow impatient, and spend their time elsewhere. While there are technical things you can do to speed up load times, some feature-rich applications have no choice but to make users wait a while in order for the application to work properly. When you’ve optimized your application all you can and it still feels slow, there’s a way you can speed up your user’s sense of time to make them feel like your application loads faster than it really does.
When an application is loading, users will typically see a progress bar on their screen that gives them a visual indication of when the application will finish loading. The way your progress bar moves and animates affects how users perceive the load time of your application
