Business Websites Examples and Tips – Where User Experience and Conversion Rate Optimization Meet

Posted · Category: Best Collections

Small business owners are not always savvy as how best to present their products or services online. The result, is too many business websites that look like most other websites, or websites which contain the right information, but it is not presented in a way that will attract and engage a visitor.

Professional web designers like you should do more than graphics and layout design, or create websites that function as expected.

You should create websites that foster excellent user experiences, and websites that are designed to optimize, and where possible, maximize, conversion rates.

In order to do this, you and your clients, have to know a website’s audience, and they have to know how to market products and services instead of merely showing or describing them.

Web Designers Should Be There to Help

1

You need to be aware of the fact that not all of your clients understand, or are prepared to handle, online marketing decisions. While these same clients want their businesses to be user centric, they do not always know how to make that happen in an online environment.

  • Web design needs to revolve around the user, rather than the website owner, and everyone on the design team needs to understand and buy into this concept.
  • Every business niche has its own set of rules. There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” business website. The basic UX rules are designed to draw in and engage visitors.
  • Certain commonplace rules, e.g., menu location, or shopping cart location, should be respected. Flashy design is rarely appropriate, as it tends to drive away more visitors than it attracts.
  • Content is still king, but only if used wisely. Content should never confuse the viewer. Instead, it should clearly demonstrate a business’s uniqueness.

WordPress Event Registration Forms Made Easy

Posted · Category: Forms

For anyone who administers a blog or manages a website, understanding the importance of interacting with readers has not escaped your attention. And if you have your company’s profile or blogs on WordPress, that interaction at times requires informing readers or customers of upcoming events.

Even if you manage a couple of blogs that have acquired a large group of loyal readers, there are times when you want to announce a special event or topic. Aside from using the “Comment” section, there is a great way to contact, interact and allow visitors to register for more interactive communication or to register for special events.

It’s surprisingly simple to create a registration form in WordPress, in fact it is as easy as simply installing and activating a plug-in. This is a much easier option than having to code forms or hire someone else to take care of it for you. CaptainForm has a great WordPress event registration plug-in that I have found out that not only saves time, but it also provides features that automate the invitation and registration process.
