There’s an old saying that I am sure most people out there have heard at some point. It’s the saying that “You only get one chance to make a first impression”. That saying is so true! However, many website and blog owners don’t realize that the very same saying, which wasn’t talking about anything other than when you first meet someone, also is true for websites and blogs.
When someone first comes to your website or blog, what’s the first impression that you want your site to make to them? Do you want them to think “Wow, this is a really nice site!” or something like “If you’ve seen one of these sites, then you’ve seen them all!”? Personally, I would prefer the first choice of “Wow, this is a really nice site!” and I am sure that most site owners out there would like to make that first impression on their site visitors as well.
The feeling of having people come to your own site for the first time and being impressed at what they first initially see can be a great feeling for any site owner. Most website and blog owners want to standout from all the other sites around the internet and make an impression with their site visitors that is lasting good impression.
Most site owners want their site to be original and unique and give their site visitors something to see that is special and stands out from the vast number of other sites out there. I don’t think that many people will be happy with just having a site that is just like all the rest.

Things like having original and unique design characteristics that they have implemented into their site design. Perhaps even a unique layout for their site that people haven’t seen before on other sites can make a good first impression. Maybe even some highly unique and original website content that people won’t find on any other website or blog can make a good impact on people.
A website or blog owner has many different aspects of their particular site that they can use to make a great first impression with the new visitors that come and see their site. Being unique and original with some of the aspects of your site can sometimes be the difference in whether or not people will like the site and return to visit it in the future.
So I say, don’t be content with having a website or blog that looks and feels like every other site out there on the internet. Create something that is different and unique to your particular site and not just another site that looks like many others out there.
So many people out there are just simply creating a site that just basically looks like so many others that are out there and although they think that might be a good idea it actually may be hurting the amount of success that their site is able to achieve.
Don’t be afraid to be unique and you just might find yourself achieving success quicker and at a greater level than you may have expected.
Create something that makes a good and lasting first impression and that will be just one more reason that people will have to return to visit your website or blog again and again and that will help it to achieve a higher level of success!
Good luck and may your website or blog reach the Apex in its Niche!
