Drive More eCommerce Sales with a Better Web Design

Drive More eCommerce Sales with a Better Web Design | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
If you are running an online store and want to get more clients here are 10 best eCommerce web design hacks for you to increase your sales.
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by Katherine Crayon
 because it shows you how your website design can impact your business sales.

 

The look of your eCommerce website directly affects your business's revenue.

 

Attract More Customers with a Better Website Design

 

To convert your leads into sales your website needs to immediately attract visitors. I agree that both optimization and design work together to achieve this goal.

 

Crayon explains 10 different ways your eCommerce business can make improvements to your website.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • You can track down your conversion problems by conducting a conversion audit. It is well worth the investment in order to find out where the holes are in your website.

 

  • A slow loading speed will drive prospects away. Make sure all of your pages load quickly and that it is easy for your visitors to find your products.

 

  • People use various devices to access websites. Find out which ones your visitors use including clicks and scrolling activity.

Why Your Website Needs a Mobile Experience Design

Why Your Website Needs a Mobile Experience Design | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Somewhere north of a billion: that’s the boggling number of websites the internet houses—but most of them aren’t optimized for mobile viewing. Although mobile and tablet devices are the internet
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from LinkedIn written by Daniel Newman because it is a timely piece in an era where desktop and laptop computers are being replaced by mobile devices.

 

Sites not optimized for mobile will see a marked decrease in visits.” ~ Daniel Newman

 

Increased Mobile Usage Demands Responsive Websites

 

With more people spending less time on their computers businesses need to update or design their websites to reach more users. I agree that if your landing page is not responsive your visits and sales will fall behind.

 

Newman addresses the challenges of old website design versus the current trends, and cautions businesses to make mobile design a priority over desktop appearance.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  1. A WordPress plugin or template is not enough to optimize, but instead the modern website should be built on a mobile experience that goes beyond just viewing.

 

  1. Social networks like Facebook are making it easier to capture content from their apps. These “browse-friendly” features make it easier for mobile users to share what they love.

 

  1. Google wants website owners to make the switch with them to a more responsive design. The tech giant is using AWPs (Accelerated Mobile Pages) to clean up bulky code meant for desktops in order to speed up page views. They are taking it one step further with PWAs (Progressive Web Apps) to help website owners offer visitors an app experience such as mobile payments.

Retain Your Website Visitors For More Sales

Retain Your Website Visitors For More Sales | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
There are many reasons why a business may not able to capture leads -- one of the biggest being a lack of appealing visual content in their website
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it provides tips on how to use visual content to improve your website subscribers.

 

Use catchy graphics tailored to your audience to compel them to want to know more about your business.

 

Turn Visitors Into Subscribers With Visual Icons

 

It just takes a few seconds for a potential customer to decide whether they want to leave or stay once they arrive at a website. I agree that appealing content that captures their attention can compel them to want to know more.

 

Gilbert shows how different graphic styles can work on your business website depending on your niche.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A boring layout can turn visitors away -- especially on mobile. The less text the better with images or videos that stand out on a responsive website.

 

  • Make a new feature or product stand out right away. This will peak your potential customer's interest and compel them to want to know more.

 

  • Take advantage interactive technology and put your visitors into the driver's seat. Your website could include maps, games, and more -- this is a good way for them to personally experience your company.

How Do We Harness the Innovation Potential of our Networks?

How Do We Harness the Innovation Potential of our Networks? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Venessa Miemis is a pioneer and change agent, and every one of her posts is part of a mindset that is essential for anyone who wants to thrive in this new world.  I selected this piece because it is something that I am struggling with now, perhaps you are too.  There are great insights, and suggestions on how to create relationships that are empowering and productive.


Here's an excerpt:


**we embrace the gifts, skills and capacities of the individuals in the community


**We pursue common goals and not the goals of just one or two people who come forward but find a way to let everyone be heard


Only in the past few months have I heard this term “asset mapping” as a needed tool to surface hidden but available value, bootstrap communities, and get things done.


I could go on and on but want you to read the article.


My commentary:


I personally belong to private groups on Facebook, have various affiliations on other networks and I am continually struggling with the following:


**the ability to manage time constraints,  (how can I possibly be on 10 networks, be on tweetchats at night)


** do my work which is very time consuming


**find time to eat and sleep and still have time for my wonderful life offline


**come together with these people and create something meaningful. I'm living in the question, what comes next........


I feel a responsibilty to other members to do my part and contribute in ways that I feel can help move things forward.


**As a content curator, I can bring articles like this to the attention of others


**It is my hope this will stimulate discussions


**introduce new ways of looking at things 


**create tools and resources for us to function in a more cohesive manner


**make a difference in whatever way we see fit and create dynamic, meaningful relationships both within and outside of these communities


**Work together to help others grow and change
