As the online world evolves, we find that things rapidly go out of date and what we once took for the truth is quickly replaced with something completely new. Take your business website, for example, where once upon a time it was thought it should come with instructions if people were going to know how to use it. Now let’s face it – nobody would want to read those instructions even if they did exist. At the end of the day, a successful website is all about being intuitive and easy to use. Let’s take a look at some other web myths that are no longer true.
3 Website Myths Busted
You Need to be a Coding Expert
Another website myth we need to bust is that you need to know how to code if you’re going to build a successful business website. If you’re a small business owner, the good news is that there are web developers and designers out there who know exactly how to bring your website to life to create brand awareness and site visitor engagement.
Mobile Will Never Take Off
Gone are the days where people only used their mobile to look up a phone number or search for directions. These days’ people use their smartphones and other mobile devices to conduct all their online searches and this means they are expecting much more out of their mobile website experience. Make sure your business website is a responsive website so that it can adapt to different screen sizes and cater effectively for your increasingly mobile-centric audience.
Website Forms are Always a Hit
There is no doubt that a website form can provide you with valuable information about your site visitors and they can be particularly good for business. But don’t assume that every site visitor wants to complete a website form. Your targets will complete your online form if you offer a compelling reason for them to do so and make it easy to complete. Remember, asking for too much information can be a complete turn-off!
