The next common website issue to address is to look for ways to improve your customer’s experience. Providing live support, simple contact forms, and allowing your customers to book appointments are a few ways to create a positive customer experience and make the right impression on visitors to your site.
Improve your customers’ experience by conveniently providing for them what they’re looking for in the first place, grabbing their attention, and leading them to a clear call to action.
Another consideration is understanding that the fewer issues your website has, the better the user experience will be. You will be more likely to convert new leads and keep potential buyers engaged.
Unfortunately, broken links happen to common sites all the time. Around 35% of sites have broken internal links, and 25% have broken external links, which dictates a low-quality perception from users of the brand and products. Broken links also negatively affect Google rankings, making it hard for customers to find you and then frustrated when they click a link and receive an error ‘404’ missing page message. Again, each of these roadblocks lowers trust in the brand and potentially loses a purchase.
