Make sure your content is well planned, there is plenty of white space (space between texts, images, content pieces and more). Create and use white space, it helps your audience better read your pages instead of having unappealing cluttered pages that is hard to read and or understand. Make sure to use amazing images and or videos on your website, it is also content, not just text.
