Your website homepage isn't 'About' you - so listen to this episode to learn about all the required changes!

Are your website's home page and about page ready for Techcess

On this episode of Techcess, m3 Networks Managing Director Mark Riddell talks all things website design and conversion rates with digital expert David Dwyer from Inspire Digital Agency.

No spoilers, but one of the main takeaways from their discussion is that your website should be transparent about your pricing.

Marcus Sheridan, known as 'the pool guy', pioneered an approach a few years ago with his book "They Ask, You Answer" and it has been gaining in popularity ever since.

And our own Mark Riddell is a big fan of Sheridan's insights, which is why we talk about him on this episode.

In addition to transparency, there are other important factors that will help convert visitors into customers.

Keep listening to find out what they are!

What are website conversions?

When someone visits your website, you want them to take some sort of desired action. This is called a conversion. Some common conversions are filling out a form, subscribing to a newsletter, or making a purchase.

There are many factors that go into whether or not a visitor will convert, including the design of your website, the copy on your pages, and the offers you present. If you want to increase your conversion rate, you need to focus on creating a positive user experience and providing incentives for visitors to take action.

You also need to track your conversions so that you can measure the effectiveness of your efforts. There are many tools and services available that can help you do this. Use the data that you gather to make changes to your website and continue to test different approaches until you find what works best for you.

Optimising your homepage

What should be on your home page?

This is the big question.

Your home page is the first impression that potential customers will have of your business, so it's important to make sure it represents your brand well.

In this episode of "Techcess" David Dwyer explains to Mark what a great home page looks like, and how you can achieve it.

Why you don't want a simple website builder like Wix or Squarespace

David Dwyer from Inspire Digital Agency advises against using a website builder like Wix or Squarespace because they don't have the customers best interests in mind. He recommends that businesses focus on creating a positive user experience in order to increase their conversion rate.

Listen to hear him explain how you can ensure your website is doing that.
