Dave discusses what makes a great website. Some of the best practices include:
– Emotive design. You have to appeal visually to emotions first before people will consider your data. Use pictures and videos.
– Make sure the contact information and maps are right at the top of the site. Make it easy to do business with you.
– Make sure you have a strong, easily understood Call To Action repeating throughout the site.
– Use testimonies and reviews on your front page.
Dave & Andrew Ballard discussed using data from user groups to create the most effective website for your business.
Websites Featured on the Show
Orbit Wills is a great example of how to connect with the end user by using a video of the owner of the company. Notice that Annie doesn’t look like a typical lawyer. She is approachable and in a home setting and so identifies more with the average person needing a will. Click the picture below to see the live OrbitWills.Com site.
Guests Featured on the Show
Special Guest Andrew Ballard of Marketing Solutions joins Dave and Lee to talk about using data-driven design and customer user groups when determing the approach to a new or revamped website. Andrew is the author of “Your Opinion Doesn’t Matter. It’s Your Customer’s Opinion That Counts”.
Pro Marketing Tip of the Week
Andrew Ballard’s Pro Tip:
Overview of User Group: When launching a new or updating an existing website, engage a user group to test your website and provide feedback on what would make your site more user friendly. Start by recruiting five people (who represent your target audience) to participate. Next, develop a questionnaire with a scenario (objective of the test) and a short list of tasks for your user group to complete (click here for a free User Group Questionnaire Template). Finally, compile the results and look for and act on common themes to improve the user experience of your website.
