Your website has a job to do. It must be written for people. Telling them what you can do for them, not what you do. It must be written for machines, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) so you show up in search engine results. And, most important of all, it must be written to competently care for your business needs. These things are not optional. To be effective, your site must do all of these things.
- Your Web site does a good job if it tells the reader what you can do for them, and touts benefits, not features.
- The job you ask it to do is reasonable and possible.
- It has measurable goals that you periodically verify as being fulfilled.
- The name of your company or organization is at the top of every page.
- Your city and state, and your street address if you do an over the counter business, is at the top of every page. This is important, as it excludes clients that you cannot service. For example, if you operate a pizza restaurant in Hartford, Connecticut, you do not want calls from Hartford, Indiana.
- Does every major page of your site tell the reader what you can do for them?
- Does your Web site include a media page with media releases?
- Does your Web site's contact us page provide your phone, fax, and E-mail for sales, customer service, and other pertinent departments? Or just a form to be filled out?
- Does your Web site link to your social networking campaign? Many sites do this. And many do not. Why? They want to keep visitors on their website and not have them leaving for social sites. So, which way to go? It's up to you. We've got social links on every page.
- Is your Web site's navigation consistent across the entire site?
- Is your Web site written at an eighth grade level?
- Does your Web site have this year's date in the copyright notice? Not keeping this current makes people wonder if you are still in business.
- Do you have out-of-date material on your site?
How to make a good website better
- Give away content. Portable Document Format (PDF) files are perfect for this.
- Include video, music, photographs to make your site interesting and unique.
- Include games and make winning a prestigious event.
- Include search capability so your customers can quickly find what they're looking for.
