5 things your website must have to impress visitors

When you want to impress your visitors, you need to do various things, but there are 5 that always come to mind when working on a clients website or one of my own.  When someone comes to your website, you'll need to WOW them in order to make a sale or get a sign up.  If your website doesn't have a wow factor, you'll quickly notice that you aren't making as much money as you should, and now you'll be behind your competitors who have their own WOW factor lol.  You can do various things to achieve this goal, which I'll go over here shortly, in order to keep your visitors coming back or get them to make their first order through your pages.

If you're not impressing your visitors, there is someone out there that will gladly do it for you, which means you're losing plenty of sales from a boring website that has no uniqueness to it.  Building a website is never the easiest thing to do in the world, but you can bring no freelancers to do this for you, or you can just user WordPress with a theme and get the visitors loving everything.  Hiring a freelancer could cost a bit of money due to them charging for uniqueness, and that means more time is involved, so obviously the price tag will go up drastically.  If you're ok with WordPress premium themes that you can customize on your own, I highly suggest taking that route because it's much more affordable and you can use the rest of your money for marketing or custom image design 5 things your website must have to impress visitors

In this discussion I'll be going over 5 things your website must have to impress visitors, and those 5 things are:


Good navigation structure
Navigation is a crucial thing when it comes to pleasing your visitors.  If your navigation is confusing, or broken, you will see people are beginning to hate your website and they aren't coming back a second or third time.  Your navigation structure can be unique, as long as people can clearly see where everything is and can find where they're going.  If you have something that has a header navigation, side navigation, and footer navigation all going to different parts of your website, you'll just be pissing people off because they will always have to restart their search down the rabbit hole and they will decide to leave your website rather than search around for a second time.

Easy navigation is crucial to impressing visitors, and that's what you should be trying to do, so get to work and make it simple yet fun at the same time.  Use drop down menus when someone hovers over your header, and it will give a little additional design feature to your pages, which is a great thing when it comes to impressing people 5 things your website must have to impress visitors


Fresh content that they can engage with
If you have content from 1999 and your pages haven't been updated since, you will not impress anyone because it will be extremely old and no one can relate to it lol.  You'll need to post fresh content, daily if possible, in order to keep people coming back over and over again.  After their first 2 or 3 visits to your website, they might just bookmark you because they'll think "Oh Hey!  I've been here a few times and I like their content!" which is what you'll be trying to do.

Fresh content not only keeps people coming back, it boosts your search engine rankings over time because Google will see what you're doing and they will love every word you're sharing with your visitors 5 things your website must have to impress visitors  Keep up the good writing, and make sure it's unique and fun to read, so people can begin to engage with it.  The more engagement that is unique, the better your content will become in the eyes of Google 5 things your website must have to impress visitors


Easy support system with great support
An easy support system goes a long way when it comes to offering great customer support.  If someone is upset with their experience, you don't want to annoy them with a difficult time trying to contact you or submit a support ticket and wait for you to respond.  You should have a chat system set up for people that need quick questions answered, and also offer a ticketing system for people that can't sit around and wait for you to respond to your chat answers. 

Usually, with chat systems you will want to set it to "Away" when you're asleep, so you don't get people trying to contact you, and then get annoyed because you're not responding.  If you have a ticket system in place, you'll need to show the average response time, and hopefully it's under 2 or 4 hours lol.  I know I get annoyed when I submit a ticket and see I have to wait up to 48 hours for a response lol 5 things your website must have to impress visitors


Blow average pricing paired with high quality
This is a little more difficult to do since it's really up to you and how much you want to profit, as well as who and where you're getting your products from.  If you're going right to the manufacturer, and purchasing in bulk, but I doubt you're doing that much work because you wouldn't be surfing through an SEO website since you have enough money to just pay an entire team of in house workers to do your optimization lol 5 things your website must have to impress visitors

People love saving money, and they love high quality products even more, so if you can pair the two you will make a ton of money in a short amount of time.  The only problem is that most manufacturers know their worth, and they won't drop their prices below their competitors just to make a sale 5 things your website must have to impress visitors  If you can somehow figure out how to get quality wholesale products without having to purchase thousands in advance, let me know please 5 things your website must have to impress visitors 5 things your website must have to impress visitors


Detailed branding on big authority websites
When you get a review or interview posted on a 3rd party website that is one of the bigger authority websites in your industry, that is worth it's weight in bitcoin lol 5 things your website must have to impress visitors  Think about it, if I were to get my content writing website listed on Forbes or entrepreneur, I would obtain a major backlink as well as build my brand quicker than most in my industry.  The only problem with this is that it's difficult to get these links unless you're already an authority, which is a conundrum in itself!

You'll need to start low, getting your content on lower quality websites, but set your standards and don't just shoot for the bottom of the barrel lol.  You'll want to boost your authority, so aim for website that are always seen in a better light by Google, so they can help boost your own pages and website in general 5 things your website must have to impress visitors  You won't usually be able to do a massive jump in authority, but you can easily get a DA35 link as a guest post if your website is DA20.  Getting a legitimate DA60+ link will be extremely difficult, unless you're buying it, if you're DA20 or under.  People want to link to great websites, and if you're just starting off, they don't have much trust in you.  So, get the links on similar DA websites, even some that are higher if you can, and work your way up the DA list 5 things your website must have to impress visitors

After you've been doing this for a while, you will have your own high DA website and people will be impressed with you since you're now the industry leader 5 things your website must have to impress visitors



In conclusion
Impressing people is just one of the many steps in marketing that you need to take when you want to make some money online.  It's a crucial step, because no one will purchase from an unimpressive website, so you'll need to show them why they can open up their wallets and make a purchase with you instead of your competitors.  There are actually dozens of ways to impress people, without paying them of course, in order to increase your trust with them.  If you are having troubles doing this on your own, I highly recommend searching for the best marketing company you can find and let them know you're trying to build trust among your community, and see what they come up with as a plan of action to do just this 5 things your website must have to impress visitors

A well designed website, with good navigation structure but without high quality content for visitors to engage in discussions is a useless site because no one who visited the site would stay for more than one minute after seeing that there is no content to chatter about on the site. This is why before launching one's site, it's paramount to already have good quality content readily available in the site.

I think that is just about right. As usual you make some excellent points. Customers really like goods and services that may be priced low, and offer average to above average quality. Why pay more for anything? I think if someone follows your tips they will have a great website.

When you go to the market, that’s any kind of market that you usually go to, you will always check on the price. That means a potential buyer is after the price except when he has already decided on what to buy. There was one news report where people in the mall were surveyed on what attracts them to make a purchase. The highest score went to the price. Chinese businessmen will tell you that price matters. That is the reason why the price of personal commodities commonly ends in 99 or 95 like 1,499 which looks much lesser than 1,500.

Proper navigation is always a must. If a visitor lands on your website, and can't figure out how to get where they want to go, they'll most likely just get frustrated and leave. Thus you just lost a potential customer.

Yeah, it irritates me when a website just won't let me navigate the site and I get lost just trying to do a simple thing. I close the tab immediately and move on to other better websites.

One thing that lots of webmasters have failed to understand is the need to have that website that can be easily accessed by the visitors to the site. I've gone to some websites and don't feel the need to come back again all because of the fact that you can't really see the whole information that you seek on the website. So, the website owners ensuring that the menu and sub links of the site can he easily accessed is a good way to keep things lively always.

True, put everything you need the customers to see on the front page and for other information, have the courtesy to have a proper menu or even a FAQs part to let the viewers find out what they need to know.

Glad you got the point I was trying to make. I mean that it is going to be awesome when some of the website owners see the front webpage as a front store of what they are selling and when they fail to display most of the things about their site on the front page, it them becomes a problem for a new person that is visiting the site for the the first time.

Yeah, I tell people that doing this is just like trying to sell a newspaper - you put the most important news first front and center and you try to include bits of articles that people would want to read in order for your newspaper to be noticed.

For some niche sites, this is difficult because the overall design of the site calls for darker color schemes, themes and tones. So visitors sometimes have to highlight or enlarge text in order to read it. Thus it's up to the site creator to find a happy medium that works, where the site can look like it fits its overall topic, but also visitors can easily read and navigate its content.

I agree, the website will be the face of your business and the appearance and content of the website will determine if you will generate income from it or not. The convenience of the customer using the site should always be prioritized so that they will not be confused finding what they are looking for. That is one reason to look for web designers since they should know where a specific information should be placed.

Agreed with that, that's what I'm looking for personally, easy to get the information, You don't need to read everything but just search and find the specific content.

I've always wondered how some sites can provide good quality products at lower prices than market standard. I was very skeptical of this when I was first getting into online shopping and was pleasantly surprised to find a seller who can actually provide me with such consistently good quality products for an affordable amount. I still buy from them from time to time.

I think building website also means that all the platforms are taken care of. And it means that some of the time the design and the content needs to be good. I have also noted that you can see that impressing visitors with the quality of the content needs to be there. Lot of people need to focus on the website content. Because that's the prime goal.

Good Article I agree on most of the points except on the 'Below average pricing' part. My opinion on this is if you created a good website with basic SEO and Target Marketing and Funnelling properly integrated then you should post a decent price and it would be successful. It's a numbers and quality game .

Thanks for this guides, easy support system with great support is the best asset for me to impress the visitors, and the visitors will become regular if they know that it's so easy to communicate to the support system, that they know they can talk to someone when the problem's come.

If you want to impress your visitors right away you should combine a lot of factors. You've listed the most important ones which are content and navigation. The overall design is extremely important because the website must be visually appealing. A good theme and navigation are crucial.

Content is what will keep the visitors interested and it will bring them back.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

aeon

Yeah, the over all design is also very important, it should be eyes friendly. Some of the website don't even know the proper color to the background and it's really hurt for some one to stay on their site because of that, It could cause of headache or something weird feeling while you looking at to the color of the site.

Another thing that could impress visitors to a website is an income opportunity feature. it may be in the form of dropshipping, affiliate marketing, referral system, anything that can help visitors to earn money or something would be a great addition to any site.

All the things you mentioned above are important. They really matter a lot, so to gain more visitors it should have easy and should have proper navigation. This article really helps especially for those entrepreneurs and writers who are still beginners or just starting to build a website for their own business. I do have website but I still have to update and upgrade the content and design so that those people who would want to visit my own website will come back to my site many times. I will try to follow your article ,those 5 things you mentioned above. Thank you for the great information It helps other writers and entrepreneurs who want to build a business using website.

First in my list is the design. Of course, the layout, color and fonts are the first impressions that the visitor gets. With the navigation, it is also a factor to become interesting. And if the contents are great then there is a tendency for the visitor to linger and roam around your website to check the inner pages. Blogs become popular because of those elements that greatly impress visitors.

Keep up the good work @TommyCarey, the information contained and discussed above are beyond excellent in my opinion. I appreciate the effort you put in writing this content, it's very helpful for all of us here in this wonderful community.

I'm always in support of getting fresh content created in any platform to encourage members in discussions and airing their views as regards to how the subject affects them.

Good navigation is also important and you can give the better experience on your website by having structured your posts, pages, and products by arranging them through the navigation menu. I think I have done this quite right.
Currently, I am focusing on having fresh contents on my website. I have a hand ful of websites and blogs and I have not added any articles since a long time. When you don't have new content to offer, you will lose traffic.
If you are selling through your website, it is necessary to have a good support system.

I think also making the site to be mobile friendly is one good way to get more visitors and have them well impressed by the site. The reason why I said this is that most people now are more disposed to to using android devices to carry out their online task, so when the site is mobile friendly, it's definitely going to get more visitors than when it's only friendly to PC and laptop users.

"Navigation is a crucial thing when it comes to pleasing your visitors."

Now that is a statement that is worthy of bold lettering. In my book, a website that I consider hard to navigate is listed under the same category as "websites that I won't be visiting again."

There is nothing more infuriating than when you're looking for something that should be simple to find, only to finally find it in some remote corner of the site that you never thought to look in.

I once had to troll through an entire site's menus just to find the registry link. Needless to say that when I finally found it, I was so disillusioned that I didn't even sign up.

Fresh content and easy to surf navigation in my opinion are probably the most important factors to look out for. No visitor will enjoy reading or surfing through old contents when other sites have up to date content or information. Also, no visitor will enjoy surfing through a site that's difficult to find their way around no matter how interesting the site is.

Fair pricing is another good point and factor a site owner should work towards. But there's only little that can be done with regard to fair pricing. Other factors can influence pricing which a site owner has no control over. Asides all that, every points are very recommendable.

There are so many great suggestions in this forum. I too agree that accessibility and navigability are primary to a site's success and integral to a site having any kind of successful return traffic. Life is too short to mess around with a site which is not helpful to its audience in terms of low-hassle ease-of-use upon each visit to the site. I also agree with the low pricing/high quality idea--you will make more money, in the long run, selling cheaper, yet multiple, units of products and services rather than just trying to seel high end things at higher prices to make a big financial score too quickly. Plus, if the prices are good for the customers, they will retutn and you will also most likely get a lot of referrals!

You could create a contest in your site and this would help you to get a lot of traffic. Just think outside the box in creating a contest, think of a unique one that can motivate people to use or return to your site and make it attainable.

Contests are a good idea, but ultimately your goal is or should be, to establish your site as an attractive and valuable topic resource, before offering visitors a chance to win any freebies.

A good navigation system is actually extremely vital to a website especially if you are looking to impress your visitors and retain them. I think a lot of people tend to just not think that much about it because it's such a small aspect when you are building your site. If your site is difficult to navigate around or your best content cannot even be accessed easily by your visitors, then you are not going to retain them at all!

Great information, i'm in the process of creating my new site and this will definitely help me along the process. I've been figuring out the best way to attract audience in my site and i think you have opened my eyes. I know that it takes a lot of thinking and work to make a site successful and attractive. Giving these information will definitely help me more in search for my site's success.

Definitely agree. Having quality content is important in gaining readers' trust. And once you have quality content, the second best thing to do is to be consistent. Release new content on a regular basis.
