Clear Contact Information:
Online web users who are willing to contact you are most of the time pleased with your website’s user experience and ready to contact you. Imagine your online visitor being awed by your website and ready to contact you but can’t find it easy to do so. It’s a clear indication you must have missed many other potential customers. Therefore, ensure your contact information is clear and well-detailed.
Ever wondered what the s in “https://” stands for? It means secure. It means the website is powered by a technology called SSL which means Secure Socket Layer. It ensures that any connection to a website is secure and encrypted. That means any data imputed is safely shared and remains private and free from attack.
3-5 seconds loading time:
Pay attention to the speed of your website. At least 47% of users expect websites to load within 3-5 seconds. You wouldn’t want to lose potential clients due to a slow website.
Well-defined value proposition
A value proposition is a clear statement that tells visitors why they should buy from you or use your services. It offers relevance, uniqueness, and value. A website should allow visitors to see at a glance the value proposition and with a few words why your business is the best choice for them. Therefore you must give a catchy value proposition that is well defined.
Clear Call to Action (CTA)
With your website, you can drive as many conversions as possible with a CTA. But it must be able to tell your visitors what they should do, and give them the motivation to do so. Your CTA should be strong enough to move people to act. Include a call to action such as get started, subscribe, try for free, learn more, join us e.t.c.
A Feedback System (Online Chat or Contact Forms)
Feedbacks make communication complete. Creating an opportunity to give feedback on your website is essential. You can display a simple survey, offer incentives to give feedback, or put a feedback button on your website.
Social Media Integration
Social media integration is important because it gives your website visitors a simple and fast method to connect with your brand on their preferred channel, which gives you more chances to interact with them. You can integrate social media on your website by adding social shares and follow buttons and/or showcasing your social media videos and pictures on your website.
One of the easiest ways to engender trust and drive more conversions easily is through testimonials. It establishes your credibility in front of your potential customers. Follow up with your customers’ experience by asking for genuine feedback. Post positive feedback on your website as your testimonial and watch your customer base expand exponentially.
