Now, you may be saying, “Well, hold on! If you’re saying my website is sick, how come I don’t know about it?”
Well, we have this to tell you, whether it’s a lot of big errors or a few small issues, website problems can mean serious trouble for businesses today. Sometimes, they’ll cause people to avoid or run away from your site in terror of its awfulness. For now, let’s face the big issues
Let the truth be told: healthy, functional, informative, attractive websites are crucial when it comes to modern business. Hence there are many reasons why business and website owners need to cure their website – and sometimes they’re not even aware that their website is sick. Some of the more common causes that instigate some website intervention include:
Just think of a beautiful seaside apartment, imagine snapping a picture that just shows the roof and nothing else… Can you see it… Does that picture showed us the beauty of the property? That is a big NO. When it comes to websites, Look Matters, a lot. Show the beauty in what you are offering. People care a lot about design. We live in one of the most design conscious eras ever. People love and obsess over well designed stuff. They pay better attention to it and more money for it.
As for ugly things, they flee from the very sight. That unfortunately includes websites, no matter how functional it is.
It is a well acknowledged fact that modern day internet users are lazy. We know some people may say, No, they’re just really busy and don’t want to waste time. Whatever the reason, if a visitor doesn’t find what they need on your website right away, they’re going to go elsewhere.
It also a fact that most internet users now access the internet from one portable device or the other. The sad truth is, if your site does not work properly on phones or tablets, your audience will walk away from your site faster than you can bring them.
What exactly do you aim to achieve by having your website up? Sometimes, people come to a website, and they have no idea what you want them to do. Maybe you want them to get a quote or call you or subscribe to something. If so, you need to make that very obvious.
And you have to tell them why they should.
Otherwise, they’re just going to leave thinking you just wasted their precious time.
Whether it’s the code, the design, or how search engines crawl it, if your site is sick in this aspect, it’s a big problem. You really do not want a broken website because the bad part about it is that you may not know it’s broken or how much its broken.
Did you know there’s over a billion websites? Placing your website on the internet and expecting people to magically find it is like trying to recognize the horn of your car in a third mainland bridge traffic or expecting your electronics store to stand out in Alaba International Market without any extra effort.
If you’re making no attempts at blogging, Search Engine Optimization, PPC, Social Media Ads etc., then you’re likely wasting your website and condemning it to a sick life
