Your website might be getting a good number of traffic, but you might still not be growing in business conversions.

If your website is user-friendly, it increases the chances of all major pages/information being browsed. With this point, you are already educating your users at a much higher rate.

Web-traffic (1)

Use the following few points to retain your users on your website and make sure they actually convert into clients.

  2. Call to action – this is a very strong point for all websites, but use it wisely. Place it static at places with great content for users, so that is unavoidable. If you are using pop-ups, just ensure that it doesn’t cover the main section of the page or doesn’t appear and reappear again to interrupt the viewing of users. You may use more than one call to action
  3. Header lines – make your header lines clear and insert multimedia options next to them. This attracts users and summarises your services for the users. Use large fonts for headers so that no effort is required from the user to understand where he stands in your website.
  4. Contact forms – Contact forms are necessary to allow immediate interaction with genuine users who really need your services. Apart from the contact us page, you may include a pop up contact form on relevant pages.
  5. Free trials/packages – As long as a child doesn’t taste it, he doesn’t like it. The same rule applies for all users as well. Give them a free trial of your services so that they can recognise the benefits. This feature helps greatly in retaining users and eventually converts them.
