You have to be on your website often, updating and changing to pull customers in – here is how:

Back in the 1990’s when I first started working with websites I always told customers to make sure they update often – most didn’t.

I now work on customers website to do this for them.

Here are a few tips to help you really make your website work:

1 – Shocking – actually look at it.  Some of my customers never look at their own sites (you know who you are Jo :-)).  You really need to know what’s on it, how to navigate it and does it work.

2 – Update it with an insight as to what you’re doing, your offer etc. Think about what your customers will find useful – not pictures of you at an award do. Useful stuff like when you’re open, your location and directions, guarantee you offer and FAQ’s etc.

3 – Smooth navigation – make it easy to navigate. Respond to customers questions, make it easy to contact you.

4 – Evolve – everything is changing all the time. Reflect this on your site, talk to your prospective customers.

5 – Who is your target market. Speak to them and make sure your offer is directed to your target market.

Website Mobile Design

Website Mobile Design to capture a wider range of customers

People are shifting so quickly to mobile devices these days therefore Website Mobile Design is especially relevant.  There are a lot of websites having to consider what the website looks like on a mobile device and how does it operate on a mobile device because they are losing site visitors.

56 percent of traffic to leading consumer websites came from mobile devices. Websites built for desktop or laptops may not be suitable or optimised for the mobile for several different reasons:

  • Smaller size & dimension of screens; requirement to adjust as screen rotates.
  • Variance of screen sizes across different devices (eg old mobiles to iPad Pro).
  • Different workflow for touch input vs keyboard/laptop.
  • Increased likelihood of lost/poor network connectivity.
  • Consideration of whether to create bespoke app or to just redesign website to be responsive.

Add a responsive Website Mobile Design to an existing website is especially relevant now.
