Top 10 Tips for Online SuccessSimple and Well-organised Website DesignHaving your website designed can get a little overwhelming and you might be tempted to put as muchin there as possible but this is when you need to practice a little restraint. Flash animation,background sound and large graphics may not be the best choice, particularly for a professionalwebsite. Focus on whats truly important a website that is organised so that visitors can easily findwhat they are looking for so great navigation and internal linking. The images need to be clear andcorrectly sized and the text easy to read (typically dark text on a light background works best.Work on your response timeWhen a visitor completes an online query, asks a questions via a social media platform or emails yourbusiness they are not just a website visitor, they are a potential customer and need to be treated assuch. If a person walked into your bricks and mortar store would you leave them standing, waiting tobe served? Of course you wouldnt you would ask how you could be of help and answer anyquestions in a timely manner the same rules need to apply for those reaching out through onlinechannels.Engage, engage, engageBy engaging with website visitors and social media followers you have the potential to turn them intoactive participants in your business and increase loyalty, reach and sales.
