"Has it been a while since you updated your website?”
Today’s post is by Troy Lowe, Director of Development at SafeSourcing.
If it’s been a while since you updated your site, you may want to consider giving it a new look and feel. There are plenty of things that you can easily do to improve your site, from updating content to making small visual enhancements. Here are few things that you should keep in mind when creating your site.
Simplify Your Navigation: Having more options available to your visitors can make your site seem clunky and confusing. Go through all of your menu options and see which ones can be grouped together and place them under one heading that can accessed by a dropdown menu. This will give a much cleaner look and feel to the site and make navigation easier for the visitors.
Add or Improve Content to Increase traffic: One way to do this is to make sure that you are creating good headlines. The headlines will be the first thing that your visitors will see. They should draw your reader’s attention and make them want to continue reading. Keep your website fresh by posting your articles frequently. This will keep your site more inviting to frequent visitors.
Company Logo: Make sure that you have a professional looking logo and that it is located in the top left corner of your site. This is the first place that a visitor usually looks when they view sites. Create a link for the image that will allow the user to easily return to your home page.
Contact Information: This is one of the most important items on your site. Make your contact information easy to find. Include your address, phone number, email address, and hours of business. Everyone communicates in different ways, so give them options when it comes to connecting with your business.
