What makes a good website?

Posted by sbh-admin on 25 10 2016.

If you have web hosting with us, you may be wondering what kind of content you should put on your website.

In this blog post, I’ll be explaining some of the key things that you should include on your website to ensure that it gives visitors (that could very easily be turned into customers!) all the information they need.

1. Contact Details

Depending on your business model, this may seem like an obvious point to make, but you should consider including multiple ways for a customer to contact you such as email address, contact form, physical address, social media, and phone numbers.

2. Use Social Media

Using social media is a fantastic way to interact with your customer base. You can use plugins to embed social media feeds onto your website. This will help customers get more up-to-date information about your company.

You can use social media to let customers know about things such as office closure, service unavailability, or promotional deals, or new blog posts.

3. Modern Design

Ensuring your website has a modern and fresh design is rather important. Website with modern designs are more visually appealing to visitors. Fresh designs can also impact whether or not a visitor might turn into a customer.

4. Relevancy

Make sure customers or visitors to your site know exactly what you do. Many websites avalanche visitors with irrelevant information that doesn’t help the visitor get where they need to.

5. Ask your customers what they want

Another great way to improve your website is to ask your customers what they think of your website. If you ask your customers what they think of your site, you can take their feedback on board to make your website more personal to both them and your business.
