Due to the advances in technology, Internet traffic is higher than ever; which means, more people are — or aren’t — visiting your company’s website than ever before. A bad experience on a website could result in permanently turning off a customer or prospect.
So, what exactly do people want from your website? They want quick-access to your site and most of all, they want easy to find, pertinent information.
Quick & Easy
There’s nothing more frustrating for a visitor than not being able to find the information they need. Keeping your site up-to-date is important so customers have immediate access to such information as your most recent address, phone number, hours of operation, and even employment opportunities. Being sent to one link after another when trying to accomplish something as simple as emailing customer service can be a real nuisance. Keep all your necessary information clear and visible so that people won’t have to go searching everywhere for it. Navigating a well-designed website is not only a pleasure but it should be the goal.
Maintaining Your Website
Along with having a well-designed website for visitors, you want to make sure your website is well-designed for search engines too. Showing up first on the results page for major search engines like Google helps create organic traffic on your website. A useful tactic to help achieve that first or second spot is on-site optimization, which can help make your website easily discoverable. Whether it’s applying keywords to your titles and headings or simplifying and cleaning up code for better online visibility for search engines, implementing these different strategies will benefit you greatly in your pursuit of reaching the top of the results page.
In today’s world, your website is more than likely the outlet of information consumers are using to find out about your business.
