In order to get the most out of your website, your customers should come first. They need to be considered every single step of the way: from the usage of the website, to the navigation, to the layout. Every aspect of the site needs to ensure that any user can visit and be able to find exactly what they want, quickly. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your website.
1) Know your audience: Why would someone visit your site
- Who will be visiting your site, and why? This knowledge is vital to the success of your website. Think about why someone would want/need to visit your site, and focus all other aspects of the website around this.
- What are they hoping to achieve by visiting your website? To learn basic information about the company and find contact information? To view your inventory, or purchase products? Whatever the reason, if you know why they are visiting, you can focus your website to allow the users to access information faster, and with less hassle.
2) Consider your navigation
- Browsing and searching are the 2 main ways that users access content on your website. Is your website easy to use, and easy for the end user to find exactly what they are looking for? All content on your website should relate as close as possible to the reason the website exists.
- If you have an ecommerce website, then you should have information about your company, but the main reason users will visit will be to purchase products, so ensure this is an easy task for the users.
3) Thinking about adding a new feature, getting a redesign, or don’t have a website, and want to get one?
- Does the potential change positivity affect the visitors? Before committing to a change, make sure the change is something that will make the website more effective, and will meet the needs of the users.
- Will design updates or a new website help your users? If you want a new design, while you are going through the process to get it setup, always keep in mind that the users are the most important, if your users are not happy, then your website will be less successful.
