Visitors take about 5 seconds to decide whether they like your site or not. Is your website up to the challenge?
The Reason(s) Most Websites Don’t Succeed
The reasons that most websites fail could fill several volumes. Creating a website is a sophisticated task, and there are a lot of things that can go wrong during the process. For instances, failure to answer some crucial questions properly can result in an abysmal website. Such questions include “What is the mindset of the visitor?” and “What is the ultimate goal of your website?”
How well a web design and development agency is able to answer these questions will determine how successful their website is. Failure to ask these (and other) questions or not finding the right answers will most certainly result in a website that fails to achieve its objectives. This wastes precious time and money, and even endangers the website owners’ business.
In addition to these questions, there are scores of things that stand in the way of building a successful website. Here are some of them:
Not Providing Reliability to the Visitors
Visitors need to trust a website, period. If a website is unable to communicate a sense of trust, it will not be able to attract and hold the attention of visitors, let alone convert them. A website is basically a front for a business. And the website should communicate that the visitors are dealing with a reputable and honest business. This can be done, but isn’t by most websites, by implementing a professional & relevant design, using original photography rather than stock images and presenting unbiased reviews from other sources. All these contribute to a sort of ‘validation’ of your website & business’ reliability. Most websites lack these elements and hence fail on multiple levels.
Gap between Expectations and Value
OK, so you have a website that builds trust and attracts visitors. The next step is to deliver what you promised through the site. Many websites that are able to communicate a sense of reliability, fail in this next crucial step. Why? Because they create unrealistic expectations for the user through the website that cannot be delivered through the services/products offered by the site. Or the initial message conveyed by the home/landing page is not the same as the other pages that the visitor will next visit.
Cutting Corners during Design & Development
It happens quite a lot. Most web designers and developers take shortcuts, a habit that always affects the quality of the website. From slow load times to broken links, the implications are numerous, diverse and ultimately result in a poor website.
