Last updated on March 26th, 2022 at 09:56 pm

Listed below are five tips to help you create an enhanced user experience and improve web results.

Lead with a clear message

To provide a friendly online experience, it is critical for visitors to quickly locate the products, services, or capabilities they are looking for. Review the most prominently displayed text on your homepage and determine if the provided descriptions give readers a clear indication of what your company does.

Provide simple and intuitive navigation

Use clearly-labeled navigation links that are understandable to your site visitors, then apply them in a consistent manner throughout your website. To test, have a user unfamiliar with your business interact with your website and note where points of confusion occur. If you need help with this, consider hire an expert web design company.

Offer compelling calls to action

Each page of your website should allow your visitors to answer the question “what now?” Once they learn about your products, services, and capabilities, they should be directed to an easy-to-find call to action, such as: “Request a Quote,” “Ask a Question,” “Download a White Paper,” “Find a Dealer,” etc.

Maximize your reach on search engines

Search engines match results to search requests by identifying relevant keywords, especially the ones in page titles and headings. If the words or phrases being searched for are not embedded in your product and service descriptions, your website will not be found. The Google keyword tool provides valuable data for you to identify popular keywords your audience is searching for.

Measure and improve results

Web tracking tools measure website success and identify areas for improvement. Google Analytics provides detailed reports on your site traffic sources, keywords, conversion actions, and more. When measuring results, look beyond the quantity of traffic and focus on the quality of visits and conversions.
