Top 5 Tips, What Should Be a Website for Your Business

Website for Your Business

What should be a website to promote business? This is probably the main question that worries every client. After all, a website is often not only a company’s business card on the Internet but also an effective marketing channel. And in order for your website to be really successful, you need to clearly understand what goals you are pursuing when creating it and what tasks it should solve.

Let’s look at the successful example of the 22Bet website to see what things are important to customers. So, the site is designed in turquoise and blue colours, and the important information is highlighted in red.

The design of the site is simple and quite standard, but it can be attributed to the pluses, as nothing distracts from betting. On the main page on the left side there is “Line”, on the top right there is a betting coupon, under it there is quick access to install the bookmaker’s mobile application, which is available to users of the two most popular operating systems – Android and iOS.

Using this example, it is clear that the site really does play a huge, almost a key role in how you are perceived by customers around the world. In this article, we will tell you about the main points to consider when creating a venue to be successful.

1. Make a Decent Mobile Version of the Site

According to statistics compiled by OuterBox, more than 79% of users visit sites and make purchases from mobile devices rather than the desktop. At the same time, 84% have trouble making purchases on mobile versions, and 40% go to competitors’ resources after receiving a negative user experience.

It is very unpleasant when a visitor opens a mobile site and it looks and works poorly. The user is unlikely to try to figure out the difficulties, click on buttons several times or wander around in an unintuitive interface – it’s easier for him to switch to another site.

Even worse, if you open the company website on a smartphone and see that it simply doesn’t have a mobile version. Zooming in and out of the full version with your fingers in the browser to see anything is just wild.

So make sure your site has a good mobile version or even a dedicated app. It should be designed to adapt intuitively to any device. Make sure that all the buttons and elements on the page are easy to interact with your fingers.

2. Come Up With a Catchy Name

A simple, clear, memorable domain name is very important for your website.

The right domain in the hands of an experienced team increases the credibility of your customers’ and affiliates’ business, increases user conversions and ROI, and reduces viral marketing costs.

Finding an unoccupied and euphonious name is not easy, but you’ll have to try. Remember that the shorter it is, the better: it’s easier to remember and type it into the address bar. The most famous sites in the world are Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. What do they have in common? That’s right, their names are not hard to remember and type in. And it’s also important that the name can be easily pronounced out loud.

Make sure you don’t misspell the words. Sure, there are famous sites with intentionally misspelt names like Flickr and Tumblr, but only very big companies will allow that. If you have an auto parts store, such misspellings in the site name will look ridiculous.

3. Let the Site Call to Action

You open Dropbox or Evernote – and immediately click “Upload.” You go to Instagram – and click “Sign Up.” You don’t have to search for anything or think about it for a long time. Why? Because these sites effectively call to action with their CTA elements.

Sometimes you go to an unfamiliar company’s website, don’t find a single CTA element, and can’t figure out what the resource is offering you. Provide a service? Sell a product? Subscribe to a newsletter? What do they do there anyway?

Put the appropriate buttons right on the home page so that the visitor doesn’t have to look for them for a long time. Explain simply and clearly to the visitor what will happen if he clicks on the CTA element.

If you have created a cool online service – let it be possible to register with one click immediately after loading the site. If you provide locksmith services – make the “Call a Master” button right in front of the user’s eyes. There is no need to hide CTA elements at the bottom of the page because not all visitors are so patient to scroll to the very end.

4. Make It Easier to Navigate

Access to information, services, and purchases should be easy. Ideally, the user shouldn’t have to think about how to find something on your site at all.

Surely you notice that the vast majority of sites are designed in a similar pattern. For example, the buttons for search, registration, and account login are always on the top right. You can switch between the main pages with information using the tabs at the top. And the buttons of social networks and information about the company are placed at the bottom. Don’t reinvent the wheel, because if a user finds your site intuitively incomprehensible, he will leave it.

And do not forget to give the user the opportunity at any time to return to the home page of the site, eliminating the need to bother clicking on the browser button “Back”.

5. Don’t Make Any Typos or Mistakes

It’s true that misspellings can happen. But in order for your business to be taken seriously, the text on your site must be grammatically correct. Errors of all kinds discourage visitors, making them think your business is untrustworthy. After all, how can you run a business if you can’t figure out the spelling?

As Jeffrey Gitomer, an American writer and business coach, says, “Your grammar is a reflection of your image. Whether it’s good or bad, you will give the appropriate impression. Fortunately, you can control that.”

Carefully check and proofread your texts. Literacy is like hygiene. You can be the world’s most brilliant businessman, the one who puts Bezos and Zuckerberg behind his belt. But if you present yourself to clients and partners with an unwashed head and dirty shoes, your talents are unlikely to be appreciated.
