Marketing Your Website

What's New ?
A Clear Path

Does your website offer a clear path toward the purchase of your goods or services? Many websites appear to have it all. Quality content, fast load times and beautiful graphics yet these same websites may not be effective tools in marketing your product or service. How can we avoid missing the mark on our own website marketing? It is important to realize how visitors view a website before we draw a conclusion.

Studies show that visitors often take less than a second to determine whether or not our website has what they want. Less than a second! That doesn't give us much time. Don't worry however; people can discern more than we think during that initial second. A quick scan of a freshly loaded web page allows people to determine if they feel the site is professional, addresses what they are looking for and may provide information they don't already have.

The last point is important, an amateurish site with poor navigation, an over reliance on graphics and lack of focus can drive people away immediately. This can happen even if the web site provides reams of relevant information. If your home page simply states the obvious, serious searchers may move on thinking they will not find any new information on your site.

A first impression may be the only chance you get to make an impression so let first time visitors know what you offer, why you are unique and provide a clear path for visitors to do business with you.
