All our clients at Netsplashing have different opinions and website goals. We work closely with clients to guide them to a maximum result for a minimum budget. We give advice along the way to help them, but ultimately we are guided by their requests. Despite that, our advice to clients doesn’t normally differ, and usually includes the following tips:
– Don’t keep outdated content on your site. For example, if you promote an event that occurred a year ago people who visit your website will assume you don’t keep the website up to date, because you don’t care. People want to read websites that are current. Keeping old information on your site demonstrates that your site lacks attention to detail.` Establish a review date schedule to keep your website up to date.
– Make it easy for your website visitors to back out of a page if they change their minds. An action can involve filling out forms, registering for email notifications or newsletters, or browsing a website for various topics or archives.
– Encourage website visitors to come back to a website by offering them an incentive, or offer them a newsletter opt in form. This captivates people who have visited your website but then move on to do something else online. Place the signup form in an easy to view place on your website, and keep track of the people that sign up. Stay on the ethical path and only send newsletters to users who request them.
– Good search capabilities are also advisable. Don’t assume your website visitors have time to go through your whole website to find one thing they want. Try having a search box in the upper-right of your homepage that allows searching for terms on your site.
