How To Revamp Your Website In 2021
Is it mobile friendly? More often than not, consumers are consuming your web content on their phones or tablets. You need to make certain your website is mobile friendly/mobile adaptive so users have as good an experience on a laptop as they do on their phone. When a potential customer gets to your site when he’s on his phone, does it work seamlessly? Can he sign up for your newsletter? Can he make a purchase or contact you? If not, he may never come back. Check its mobile friendliness today.
How fast is your site? People don’t have the patience to wait for a site to load. They want what they want and they want it now. If your site loads slowly, a potential customer might go to a competitor whose site loads quickly. In many cases, if your site doesn’t load in FOUR seconds, a user will leave.
Make it safe. Users are so savvy today and are so fearful of having their information stolen or being hacked that they will look for the “padlock” on the URL or they will only go to a site that is httpS (they look for the S as a sign the site is secure) Make certain your SSL certificate is current.
