Have you ever thought about what annoys you or your customers when visiting a website? If you’re thinking about what you should or shouldn’t have on your website, then here are some things to think about.
#1 Pop ups that won’t go away
If someone has to click, “I’m not interested,” more than once, it can drive them off your website.
#2 Too many pop ups and distractions
Most people don’t like it when too many things are competing for their attention. On your website, it can make people feel confused or frustrated.
#3 Text that can’t be read on a mobile
It can be annoying to have to rotate your screen, or zoom on the page. Most people go to websites because they want information quickly and conveniently, and anything that slows them down can be a turn off.
#4 Unfitting or unflattering design
First impressions count. And unfortunately, some people won’t stick around on a website if the design doesn’t speak to them.
#5 Broken links
Well, if someone clicks on something, and it doesn’t go where they expect – then that’s another thing that can put them off from dealing with you.
Of course, there are many more factors that influence whether someone will want to stay on or leave your website.
If you’d like someone to give your website a look over, I offer (for a limited number of people per month) a free website review. Get in touch to find out more about claiming a website review.
