Easy and Comprehensive Navigation
This is one very important feature of a good website, as nobody including myself will continue my tour on a website that is already making me confused. Keep it simple by placing your navigation on the top or top left hand corner of your website to enable easy access to your website visitors.
Fast Loading Website Pages
None of your pages should take more than 3-5 seconds to loads. Nobody will want to continue surfing a lagging website, not to mention converting. It is very important that you optimize your website to load as fast as possible while also having the important features of a good website.
Obvious Yet not too Compulsive COA
Your call-to-action should be obvious enough for people to see yet should not be too compulsive so as not to scare people away. This may be one reason why your website is getting substantial traffic without any serious conversion. Your call-to-action should be embedded in your content, product description or service description
One reason your website has not been generating adequate leads is because you have not been able to connect with your website visitors. When developing content, make it as personal as possible. Avoid the use of words like “the company, the individual, and the customer” and substitute them for words like “I, you, we, etc.” This will make your content to look less like an automated one and look more personal.
Substantial Contact details
Trust is one facilitator of conversion as the individual who is to convert is likely going to give out something of value and would expect something of value in return. It is important that you give out enough contact information that makes your business look legitimate.
Focus on Sales Promotion
“a trial will convince you” read the signboard of a boutique I saw along the road. I walked it, tried a perfume free and then came out with three pairs of shoes and a shirt which were bought with my own money. The point is not the items I bought but the trial that made me buy more than I actually bargained for. People will not appreciate your product or services enough until they make use of it. The difference could be a trial version or a discounted product.
