Did you know that 83% of people surveyed by Online Marketing Institute said they sometimes leave a website because it takes too many clicks to find what they want? And, according to Online Marketing Coach and Small Business Trends, 70% of business websites don’t ask site visitors to take any action, like calling for a free quote or filling out an email contact form (also called a “call to action”)?
Common website mistakes like these often keep business websites from reaching their full potential and miss the goal of getting businesses the new customers they want. In fact, mistakes like cluttered messaging, poor design, or an unclear call to action, can result in fewer people finding your site, fewer conversions from site visitors, and, ultimately, lost potential customers.
