You don’t want your website to be like a mouldy piece of food forgotten about in a Tupperware container at the back of your fridge. Gross, we know. But that’s the point. Your website is the virtual face of your business and it ought to reflect what it is you do. It should temptingly feed your customers the knowledge they’re looking for and cause them to follow through on your calls to action. You want them to stay, not go away because they’re off put by a bad user experience or an outdated look.  

People read differently when they’re on the web as opposed to when they are reading a paper document. Web users typically scan information, looking to subheadings as signals for what they want more of or what can they can pass over. The prevalence of online list-cles rather than full-length articles marks this change in online reading behavior, as web users want to find things fast.    

A study tracking online reading behavior conducted by Jakob Nielsen found that webpage visitors “have time to read at most 28% of the words during an average visit; 20% is more likely.” So you don’t want to waste your words when crafting the copy that will appear on your website. Instead, you want to take the time to hone in on the essential things you want to say, to keep your web visitors interested and get your message across.

Website analytics measure, collect and report valuable data about how your website is viewed, what pages get the most traffic, who is viewing your site and way more. As a business owner, you can harness this information to improve the effectiveness of your website, using the metrics to optimize the pages that work best and fix up the ones that cause web visitors to exit your site.  You can actively track your online campaigns to discover which are working and which are failing. Plus, Google Analytics (GA) if FREE. Why wouldn’t you sign up for an account?
