How to Plan Your Entire Website with a Content Map

How to Plan Your Entire Website with a Content Map | Around Joomla | Scoop.it

How do you create strong, meaningful, powerful content that sells, converts and engages your customers? The secret lies in creating a fool-proof content strategy that works for each and every website right from a small business to a large corporate site. In creating a content strategy for your website, essential tasks such as keyword research, content gap analysis, site maps and content audits take a back-seat to the creation of a content map, a simple diagram that places key pieces of info at your finger tips. A content map is an invaluable tool that assists content strategists and it’s elements are the building blocks for your entire website right from content to design to development and marketing. I like to use the content map that Joe Pulizzi and Christina Halverson used on slide 42 of their slideshare presentation – Web Content Strategy – How to Plan for, Create and Publish Online Content for Maximum ROI....

Eye Tracking 101: How Your Eyes Move on a Website

Eye Tracking 101: How Your Eyes Move on a Website | Around Joomla | Scoop.it

Engage website visitors better by designing your site to match how people's eyes move on the page. Here are some surprising eye tracking stats to help.

 

Putting together a great looking website is a great start, but it is just a start.

 

True web design requires you to venture beyond the aesthetic and into the worlds of User Experience and Conversion Rate Optimization.

Knowing how the viewers of your site really see it can help to shine light on new and/or missed opportunities within your current design. It may also bring out the need for new elements or changes.

 

While there are plenty of options for improving CRO, eye tracking analysis provides some of the most useful information for optimizing your biggest digital marketing asset, your website.

 

A good design will catch people’s eye, but a great design will keep people on your site and get them engaged with your content. And while you shouldn’tunderestimate the power of good copy, your design is what people notice first.

 

We teamed up with our friends over at Single Grain to put together the infographic below in hopes that it will help everyone get a better, basic understanding of what eye tracking is and what it can do.

The Disadvantages of Responsive Web Design - OMI | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

The Disadvantages of Responsive Web Design - OMI | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | Around Joomla | Scoop.it
Responsive web design continues to grow in popularity. But before you invest it in, you must understand the disadvantages.

 

Intermediate/ Condensed...

 

Every time I look into this, I come down on the side of using device specific websites, not responsive design. Why? Because I believe that someone who is accessing your website from a mobile phone is in a different place in the buying process than someone who is using a desktop computer. And I think mobile users are looking for a specific level of information.

 

The other disadvantage I’ve read a lot about is that responsive sites take longer to load on mobile devices because of the way they are built. And long load times are bad for the consumer experience and something Google frowns upon. After just four seconds of waiting, you’ll have lost 25% of your visitors (KISSmetrics), and abandons are exponentially higher after that.

How People Read Online [Infographic]

How People Read Online [Infographic] | Around Joomla | Scoop.it
Now that reading online involves a bevy of social actions, from sharing to commenting across a plethora of devices, how many of your site’s readers will make it past the first paragraph?.

Recently Slate's technology columnist investigated this issue further in his article You Won’t Finish This Article. Using data from Chartbeat, he found that most readers don’t engage with the article, and if they do, they are inclined to do so before scrolling half-way down the page. 

 

To help us better understand the risks and opportunities about online readership, and to help you, dear reader, get to bottom of this article faster, we present you with an infographic that summarizes it all.
