User Friendly Website

User friendly means a website that is for your clients to use and delivers essential information about your website. Too often, website owners do not build their websites with the user in mind.  This is vital because websites are meant to attract potential clients! If you want to build and maintain a successful marketing campaign, be smart about the way you set up your website. Below are 5 key features you want to stress on your website to make it top-notch!

  • Information & Content– This is probably the most important feature because it is what is going to attract an audience to your site.  Stock your website with information and content that is relevant and interesting.  However, don’t go over the top! No one wants to have to read an essay to understand what your website is about.  Keep it simple and informative. Break up your content so it is not overwhelming to the eye.
  • Navigation- Make sure it is easy to navigate around your website.  Include a menu that enables the user to easily go from page to page.  If possible, put the menu on the top of the page and include drop down menus if necessary.  About and Contact buttons are extremely important.  Users want to know what your site is about and how to contact you with questions or concerns.
  • Accessibility- You want current and potential customers to be able to find you easily, right? Most users will use search engines and directories to find you online.  Because of this, you want to market yourself accordingly.  Apply SEO or PPC tactics to your website so that you can be more readily visible online.
  • Website Speed- This may seem like a thing of the past, but a lot of users still have dial-up service and if your website is crammed with unnecessary junk, it may slow down the website and the user may leave the page in frustration before it even loads. Factors that may affect loading speed include image size, page size, flash features and excessive code installation.
  • Smart Links– Links are important not only to make your users experience more favorable, but for your website’s benefit as well.  Links will connect to other pages within your site and to the outside world as well.  Make sure your links are functioning! The last thing you want is for a user to come across a broken link! This not only makes it impossible for the user to access the link, but makes your website look unprofessional.
