How Does Your Website Check Out?

Posted by Sterling Stowe on Aug 10, 2017 10:14:29 AM

It’s late 2017, and we’re going to go out on a limb and say you have a website for your business (If not it’s time to come out from under the rock and get one!) but not all websites are created equal. If your website wasn’t designed properly or hasn’t been refreshed in a few years, you are due for an update. Not updating your website could be costing your business money right now.

Use this checklist to see if your website is underperforming in any critical areas. If your site is underperforming in any areas, our expert Denver based web development team can bring your site up to speed.

PAGE SPEED:
One of the most important metrics for your site performance is how quickly it loads. The longer your page takes to load, the more likely your clients are to go somewhere else. This metric also affects how well your page will rank with Google and Facebook, both sites will penalize your site for loading slower by moving you below your competition.

AESTHETICS:
Your website is often times the first look potential clients get of your business. If they find their way to your page, you don’t want to scare them off by having a site that looks like it was made in 1995. The design should be catchy enough to draw users in but not so flashy that people get lost in the content.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN:
You won’t know what your clients are going to be viewing your site with—desktop, mobile, tablet—so your site needs to be responsive and optimize its display accordingly. Look at your website on your phone, is it easy to read and navigate through? Does it load quickly on mobile? If not, people are leaving your page before they can convert.

CONVERSION RATE OPTIMIZATION:
A website should guide the user through the pages of your website in an intuitive way. They need to find the information they are looking for before they knew they were looking for it. Each page should inform them and move them closer to the crucial conversion point. Whether you are looking for them to hit "buy now" or "fill out a contact form" our web team understands how to guide the user through the experience.

At Get Found Fast, we take all of these into consideration to build you a better website that’s better for business.

Our professional team will give you an overview of your site and show you how our team can help your site perform better and bring you more leads.

If you’re wondering where you can find the best burger in town, you are probably thinking, “Google it”. A quick search will quickly return a map with your location and the precise location of the best burgers around you. Your results are different than mine because of Google’s push for hyper-local search results. This is what Google does best. Give you the information that is accurate and most relevant to you, because there might be a better burger one state over but that doesn’t do you much good.

Facebook reach is something businesses are constantly fighting for, especially since it appears to be gradually declining. More and more content is being created by the touch of a finger, making it tougher for all this new content to be shown on your News Feed. So how do you get your business or story to increase its Facebook reach and gain exposure? You'll need to get them to react more to your posts.
Want More Facebook Reach? Motivate Fans to React | Social Media Today
Facebook introduced its now-familiar set of reactions in early 2016 as a way for users to express themselves beyond a simple "Like"... ...When Reactions were first rolled out, Facebook explained that they would each be given the same value as a like... ...Now Facebook says that reactions will, indeed, now be worth more than a like... Note: Facebook says that currently all reactions are weighted the same, so News Feed's algorithms won't be influenced based on how someone reacts. Yet. Read more...

Like SocialMediaToday.com says, you'll want to get the hang of creating content that invites more reactions, like posts that strike a certain emotion. If your content is funny, include subtle, subconscious messages that invite the reader to react with a, "Haha." This will help with your reach, as News Feed will pick up on content that readers are interacting with, rather than liking. We know social media management can be overwhelming, as well as time/energy-consuming.
