Drive Conversions Through Web Design

September, 2019

The digital landscape is shifting and growing each passing day. From Facebook and Instagram to Twitter and TikTok, social media continues to dominate. It’s no wonder why marketers pour so many dollars into marketing efforts on those platforms. In fact, social media spend is expected to reach as much as $76 billion in the coming year according to research from Zenith Media. It’s a lot to bank on for conversions.

But if conversions are what you want, your brand needs to do more than social media in the online world. As the Internet evolves, so does the popularity of social media platforms. Look no further than MySpace, Google+ and Vine as examples of how fickle online tastes can be.

The only form of online communication with staying power is the website. If your website is appealing, it is easy to convert a browser to a customer. When picking an agency to assist in your website’s design, make sure they are able to help deliver on these points to make your online presence a success.

Be Informative

An obvious point, yes, but a very necessary one at the same time. Being informative is more than just dumping talking points on users, it’s solving customer needs through branding. This means only providing information that is necessary without fluff or bloat. Don’t fret! There are still ways to let your brand voice and tone shine while speaking to your target audience in a way that is straightforward.

A direct approach is effective to the modern day internet user. There is a lot being said about increasingly shorter attention spans in society. Whether this is a real scientific decline is up in the air. But what is not debatable is that consumers are becoming better at discerning the useful from the trivial. If your website is not immediately informative, it will get dismissed and tossed on the proverbial internet junk heap. If you want to convert leads to buyers, this is not the way to go for your brand.

Keep Them Coming with User Friendly Design

Packing your website with useful information is a great start, but none of it will matter if it is unusable. When designing a website, there are two concepts at play: UX design and UI design.
Although they go hand in hand, it is important to understand their differences to make a successful site.

UI refers to User Interface, which has a lot to do with what the user sees. It is as close to graphic design as web design gets. The look, tone and feel of a website is all under the dominion of UI design. This differs from user experience design. UX design is the framework of the entire structure of a website. It’s concerned with making sure that everything under the hood is in order, making everything smooth for the end user.

Why are these practices important? Consumers want to interact with an attractive and welcoming layout. The term bounce rate refers to how quickly someone leaves a website. In order to keep your bounce rate low, a clean design that flows is your best bet. On the experience side, long load times and other performance issues will have leads leave your website in droves. Making sure both sides are in concert with each other is key to converting.

Mobile First is the New Normal

A great looking website on a desktop may have meant the work was down 15 years ago, but that does not fly today. Breakout your phone or tablet and ask the web development team working on your website designed with mobile in mind. It is not just the younger Millennial or Generation Z members that appreciate mobile first website design. More than half of Americans age 65+ use a smartphone. The adoption of smartphones and mobile devices mean it’s beyond time for your brand to think of mobile before anything else when it comes to web design.

A mobile first website is more than just resizing the desktop page. The mobile user interacts with your brand and other content differently than someone sat in front of a computer. Your brand has just a few micro-moments to leave an impact. When thinking mobile, your brand needs a website that can engage in just a few seconds, be easy to navigate and read, and of course be fast. Putting these puzzle pieces together can be difficult, but the right team can get it done.

Search Engine Optimization is Your Friend

Often known as SEO, this concept is generally known by marketers, but its importance cannot be understated. Search is no longer just done with keyboards. Across the United States, consumers are adopting not just voice search, but image search as well. Effective SEO in late 2019 and beyond covers all of these bases.

Understanding the way consumers interact with search engines can improve search engine optimization for your website. For example, the rise of voice assistants and smart speakers has made searches more personal, with words like I and how dominating the landscape. With leads looking to be taught how to solve their problem, make sure your website is optimized to be a resource for your target audience.

Make sure that your website is built to last. We recommend having a modern and easy to navigate layout to stand out from the competition. When consumers are looking to engage with brands, deliver an experience that will leave an impression.
