Web + Conversion

As a starting point, Winley suggests that first you should check what is wrong with your website. Understand where you are lagging and fix the weak spots. Is your website or app mobile-friendly? Does it load rapidly? Does your contact form actually work?

Here are some suggested tools to help you diagnose the health of your website and take corrective actions:

GT Metrics

Google Search Console
Hotjar

Be mobile-first and show empathy.

We are living in a mobile first era, so ensure that your website or app is a 100% mobile friendly.

We touched the theme of Call to Action (CTA). Call to actions that shows empathy to the process the user is currently in has shown to drive more user engagements that the usual “Buy Now” rhetoric. “You need to show that you want to assist before trying to sell”  — Winley.
