It is important to make sure that our website means business. However, we need to be aware that our website is much more than just an online brochure. It should work more than a colourful pamphlet on the computer or smartphone display that people want to read. Flyers and brochures have their own purposes, so do our website. As an online representation, website should be highly interactive, other than being informative. Website should be clearly defined as a trigger to action. A website should have a very strong call to action and it needs to be really compelling.
However, we should know what makes a standard website compelling. In this case, we need to make sure that the website could establish an instant connection. Our website should have a pure energy that can attract people, whenever possible. When people use our website, they should feel like coming home. It means that the website should have an energy that strongly reaches out to us and the overall design should make a strong impact.
Our website should be able to give vital information for users. Internet marketers should be able to give the relevant information, so users are able to make proper informed decisions. In this case, we shouldn’t scare them into believing an information or into buying something. We should avoid using boxes and loud big fonts. Our website should be able to establish friendly information and we shouldn’t do this in a negative manner. We should do things in an informative manner. We should also give users hope that we are able to solve their problems and it is even better if we are able to give them joyous expectations.
When users find our website for the first time, it should like finding someone new, who is interesting. Even an e-commerce website shouldn’t try too hard to sell something to users. It is better to nurture trust and when it happens, it is quite likely that people will eventually return to read our information or buy more of our products. In this case, building a lasting relationship is a more important thing to do and we could gain many things by making prospective new friends.
With a good website, people will be more interested to explore our products and services a bit further. Our websites don’t have to offer many compelling deals and so many decorative elements. In this situation, we should be able to generate many sales, especially if people know what we are offering and whether we could solve their problems. This simple marketing and business consideration has a huge impact on the design and development process. Programmers and designers will need to make sure that it’s very intuitive and easy to get information on products and services through the pages.
It is clear that when designing our website, we should design something more than an online brochure. Our website should be engaging and interactive for users. We will be able to build trust and keep in touch with people who visit our website.
