Professional web designers can boost your sales conversion by:
- Directing your customers to key information – If visitors can’t find what they’re looking for, they’ll leave. So you need to have a site that has simple user-friendly navigation and search features. Also, consider having a landing page that will take your customers directly to the information they need.
- Making it easy for customers to buy – immediately – A professional designer can help place the action buttons in strategic positions that your customers will immediately notice.
- Hiring a professional designer can help streamline the purchasing process and allow your customers to check out as soon as possible.
- Technical glitches are usual in websites. However, without professional help, you may find it hard to maintain your site.
Avoid these typical pitfalls:
- Flash animation – It was popular once but consumes too much bandwidth and takes a long time to load. Instead, focus on providing helpful information about your products and services.
- Eye strain – You can avoid giving your customers a headache by using readable fonts or backgrounds.
- Difficult navigation controls – Users will immediately leave sites that feature navigation controls they can’t understand.
- Wasting user’s time – Loading your images and graphics requires a great deal of bandwidth. Also, it can also cause long loading times. So don’t go overboard on your use of images.
- Overdoing it –Trying to fit all your ideas in one website may confuse your users. This can give them a reason to leave, rather than stay and buy your products or services. So keep things simple.
