Top Five Reasons Why Your Website Is Failing

#1. It’s so slow.

Your website visitors expect your site to load in less than 3 seconds. 45% of visitors will actually leave if it takes more than 3 seconds.

#2. It doesn’t work on my phone.

60% of “visitors-from-searches” are on their phone NOT a desktop PC.

#3. I can’t find what I’m looking for.

Poor menu structure and confusing language are responsible for most “bounces”.  According to Google Analytics, “a bounce is when a person leaves your website from the entrance page and doesn’t interact with the page”.  These visitors just go away, usually because they don’t see what they want in their first glance.

#4. I can’t find your address or phone number anywhere.

Phone books don’t exist anymore! The #1 and #2 reason why someone would Google your business is to find your address or phone number.

#5. The most recent comments are from a year ago.

Your website looks out-dated and unattended.
