Tips on Creating a High-Converting Website

Creating a website that effectively converts visitors into customers is essential for any business. When users visit your site, the layout, copy, and overall experience will determine if they become customers. When we design a website, conversion and UX are always top of mind!

Here are some tips on design and experience that are sure to create a high-converting website:


1. Keep it Simple 

A clean and uncluttered design can help visitors focus on the most important information and calls to action. Avoid using too many colors or fonts, and keep the layout easy to navigate. If your customer is overwhelmed they bounce off without signing up for your newsletter, buying a product, or whatever action you wanted them to!


2. Make it Easy to Navigate

A clear and intuitive navigation menu can help visitors quickly find what they are looking for on your website. People have short attention spans and don’t want to feel like it’s too much work to find what they want on your site.


3. Use Persuasive Copy 

The words on your website play a crucial role in converting visitors. Use persuasive copy that highlights the benefits of your products or services and includes strong calls to action. This also goes hand in hand with ensuring the copy on your site is optimized for SEO to help your search rankings. 


4. Optimize for Speed

 A slow-loading website can cause visitors to leave before they even have a chance to convert. Optimize your images and reduce the number of elements on your pages to improve load times.


5. Highlight Social Proof

Including customer testimonials, ratings, and reviews on your website can build trust and credibility with visitors, increasing the likelihood of conversions. If people feel like they can trust your business and will be satisfied, they are much more likely to convert into paying customers. 


6. Make it Mobile-Friendly

With more and more internet traffic coming from mobile devices, it’s essential to ensure that your website is optimized for mobile. A responsive design that adjusts to different screen sizes can help improve the user experience and increase conversions. Read more!


7. Test, Test, Test! 

A/B testing different elements of your website can help you determine which design elements and calls to action are most effective at converting visitors. As trends and tech change, it’ll be important to update what’s not working and add new things to your site!
