Creating A Website That Converts

A step by step guide

One of the most crucial tools that businesses can utilise is a website - but simply having one is not enough. An effective website needs to convert visitors into customers. In this step-by-step guide, MCT Web will go over the key elements of a website that converts, so that your website delivers results.

Step 1: Define Your Target Audience

First things first - you can't start planning and designing a website until you understand who your target audience is. What do they like? What are their needs? What are their pain points? Customer personas are a great way to help tailor your website to specific needs and make it more effective in converting visitors into customers.

Step 2: Start Strong

The first few seconds of a visitor’s experience on your website are critical. An impactful first impression will keep them on your site and engaged with your content. Make sure your website’s design is professional, visually appealing, and easy to navigate. It's usually useful to describe your business straight away. Attention spans can be short!

Step 3: Use a Clear Call-to-Action

A call-to-action (CTA) is a prompt to your visitor to take a specific action, such as making signing up or getting in touch. Your CTA should be prominent, easy to find, and clearly state what action you want the visitor to take.

Step 4: Provide Valuable Content

Quality content is important for any website, but it’s especially important for websites that aim to convert. Your content should provide value to your target audience, whether it’s in the form of educational articles, product demos, or customer reviews.

Step 5: Make the User Experience Seamless

A seamless user experience is essential for converting visitors into customers. Make sure your website is easy to navigate, loads quickly, and provides all the information a visitor needs to make a decision. These are also important for SEO. Win-Win.

Step 6: Optimize for Mobile

More and more people are using their mobile devices to access the internet. A website that is not optimized for mobile devices will not only provide a poor user experience, but it will also hurt your search engine rankings. Make sure your website is mobile-friendly and looks great on all screen sizes.

Step 7: Test & Refine

Finally, it’s important to continually test and refine your website. Use analytics to track your website’s performance and gather feedback from users. Regularly updating and improving your website will help ensure that it remains effective and continues to convert visitors into customers. It's useful to create a path exploration in google analytics to find exit pages.
