3 Key Tips for Building a Successful Website

1. Make your site mobile responsive

This used to be suggested previously. But over 62% of shoppers use their cellphones to make purchases. 9 out of 10 of them use smartphones to compare prices and check product reviews. “Suggested” has for all practical purposes become mandatory.

2. Always place your contact information above the fold

Don’t make people who want to contact your business have to search for your contact information. Place it where it will be easily located. If you’re using social media, placing links at a header or footer will serve the same purpose.

3. The need for speed is real

A busy shopper will not look favorably on a slow-loading website page. Same goes for any website that decides to behave badly for no apparent reason (i.e., it’s buggy). Don’t be surprised if visitors bail out and seek out a competitor’s site in either case. Keep your site updated and in tune so it can be counted on to run smoothly. Make sure your videos and images are optimized for faster downloads. Use a host you can rely on to manage your site’s bandwidth demands.

Finding a website builder that will best fit your needs isn’t always easy. After all, the marketplace is saturated with website-building tools. It can be especially difficult for beginning web designers who don’t always know what to look for.
