Investing in a website and having an online presence is an essential part of doing business these days, as many people research businesses online before they end up purchasing items or services from them. What this means from the business perspective is that having a website may not simply be enough – your business needs to have a well-designed site that engages potential new clients or customers.
Whether your business already has a website or you are developing a business site for the first time, making sure that your website is optimized, compelling and effectively represents your business will be key to not only maximizing your profits but also making sure that your Internet marketing efforts are fruitful.
In theme with our recent blog series that took an in-depth look at how to evaluate the return on investment (ROI) for a website, in this blog series, we will delve into what can be done to maximize ROI for a website. When you are ready to maximize ROI for your website, contact the professionals at Epic Web Results. We provide a range of innovative, affordable Internet marketing solutions that can help generate new business leads and ultimately grow your practice or business.
How to Maximize ROI for Your Website
Strategy 1 – Streamline the navigation for your website.
When people visit your business’ website, it needs to be as easy as possible for them to find the info they are looking for – otherwise, the chances are that people will click off your site and check out your competitor’s website. In fact, if people can’t find what they need or figure out how to navigate your website within about 8 seconds, they will leave your site – and they will probably never return to it.
Therefore, when it comes to the design of your website, the old adage keep it simple should be your mantra. Not only will a simple navigation strategy generally keep the design costs of your business’ site in check but it will also help you maximize ROI for your website (as you will be spending less on the design while ideally realizing more traffic and/or making it easy for people to stay on your site for longer periods of time).
If you already have a website for your business and the navigation for your site is inefficient and obtuse, it may be time to invest in redesigning your site’s navigation. This investment can go a long way to generating new online leads, customers and clients.
Strategy 2 – Publish optimized, well-written content on your site.
The content on your website needs to be:
- Easy to read – People don’t want to read blocks of text. Make your content easy to scan by using bullets, bolded text, etc. so people can hone in on the info they are looking for.
- Optimized for your target audience – For many businesses, this will include targeting a specific location (i.e., a city or county).
- Well written – This means that your content shouldn’t be riddled with typos and/or grammatical errors. This could cost your business credibility with potential clients.
If you’ve already invested in content for your website and that content is not compelling or optimized, it’s likely time to revamp this element of your business’ site. The good news here is that it typically doesn’t cost a lot to get high-quality content and that this investment can exponentially maximize ROI for your website through new leads and clients.
