Whether marketing plastic surgery or any other business online, tables are an excellent design tool. In fact, they can even be considered an effective sales tool. Tables can establish organization on a page and divide a page into neat, uniform sections. Further, they can provide direction to your sales presentation.
Tables can be used to divide a page into two columns and even three columns. With a two-column page, you can have a wider column for your content and a narrower column for your navigation bar. While you can place your navigation on either the left or right, it’s recommended that it be located on the left. People tend to scan a page from left to right starting at the top so they’ll be able to quickly find your navigation. Further, Internet users have come to expect navigation to be located on the left.
When using tables, remember that web pages can appear differently for different users according to the screen resolution, the operating system, the browser and so on. As such, it’s important that you make your tables system-friendly. You can make the overall width of your table 600 pixels, thus increasing the chances that it will look right in a variety of situations. Without doing this, your site can look distorted and may even keep people from using it properly.
