Don’t underestimate the importance of good web development & SEO because when things are done right, your conversion rates and traffic will soon be on the up!
Whether you’re looking to redesign or build a new website, there are many things to consider, for example, brand colours, fonts, logos etc. We can help you develop the right website for your business.
Know your audience. Think about what they would be looking for in terms of not only the product or services you offer but the navigational experience, and web layout.
Hubspot reports that people can recall as much as 65% of information seen visually for up to 72hrs, but only 10% of information they have heard. Also, 37% of the population are visual learners, so great photos will take you a long way as far as your brand is concerned.
Ensure you have your CTAs (Call To Actions) placed on the right pages and not too many. Be consistent, so that all pages have a similar layout and have something in common, along with simple navigation, customers need to be able to find what they are looking for quickly and easily.
Make sure that your website’s email capture form syncs with your email system seamlessly and make it easy for your customers to find. You need to keep your business in front of your target audience.
Most websites have social media icons in their footer. Make sure that you do the same. Your prospects will no doubt go and look at your social media profiles, any reviews you have, how active you are on social media. Some people prefer to contact businesses using social media, so make yourself as easily accessible as possible. Remember to answer any comments, messages, and emails as efficiently as you can, to keep your customers engaged with your brand.
Finally, testing plays a critical role in the development of your web site and its long-term maintenance.
