    You do not get very long to make that first impression when it comes to your website.

     

    Good article and it gave me another excuse to watch the Dollar Shave Club video and point out that it is one of the best marketing pieces ever created.....

     

     

     

     

    Do you remember your first job interview? Most people do because it was either extremely successful and they got the job or they stumbled through the entire thing. Often times, the outcome didn’t have anything to do with the interview itself, but from the employer’s first impression of you. Within seven seconds of meeting someone new, they’ve already judged you.
     
    In a similar way, people judge your website. If it isn’t branded in an attractive way or its user experience is confusing, your users won’t take the time to learn about your product (even if it fits their solution).
     
    A study shows that it takes less than two-tenths of a second for an online visitor to form a first opinion of your brand once they’ve perused your company’s website.
     
    This means that you only have a finite amount of time to impress your visitors or give them an introduction about the kind of product/service you offer. Don’t worry a bit! I am here to help you make your first impression correct.
     
    Here are lists of things which you can convey to your website visitors in 30 seconds so as to form a good first impression...

     

     

    10 Things to Convey Your Website Visitors in 30 Seconds

    There should be a brief description about your offerings, home page should describe about the product in the best possible way, and there should be no chance of guesswork.

    Visitors do not wait very long before backing out of a website if they do not see a reason to stay or if it loads slow. This is especially true on mobile it is like the whole world is going add on us.

    That video was cool, I think I remember reading that he actually the company for something close to $1 billion which is a nice pocketful of money after only a few years.

    You do not have much time. I was having a lot of fast bounces on my site and I spent a bunch of time making it load faster and the bouces were cut in half.

    Yes he did so the video (which exploded the business) definitely paid off.

    Slow load times are a killer (especially on mobile) but you need to also look at what happens once the page loads and they are still around. You need to give your visitors a good reason to take action.

    A lot of it depends on the purpose of the website or page. If it is a targeted landing page then yes you need to make sure that your cta is really good in order to get them to do whatever action you are targeting. If you have a how-to or site with a lot of tutorials then you are going to get a lot of bounces no matter what  you do if all the info the visitor is looking for is on one page. The best case in that situation is to break up the steps on separate pages you see that all the time on review sites where each section is on a separate page This cuts down on bounces and also lets you track how far people go before falling off or skip to the conclusion.

    Good point about using muiltiple pages and splitting them up will also make them load faster.

    Had not seen that video before he did a nice job on it. 

     

    breaking stories up on to different pages so visitors have to click to see the rest is not something I had really thought about. I have seen it done a lot but had not really thought of why it was being done. Wordpress has an option built in so you only show the first part of the post I have not been using that option but I will be doing so going forward.

    Just make sure you do not lose track of your real goal. While it is good to lower your bounce rate by getting visitors to do something you want to make sure they are doing the "right" something. 

     

    You should really have an ideal action for every page of your site. You want to make sure that the visitor is completely the action that is going to make you the most money......

    We spend a large amount of time focusing on optimizing our sites for high conversions and low bounce rate but one thing that a lot of us do not think about enough is the traffic coming to our sites. If that is not targeted properly then nothing we do on-page is going to help us keep our bounce rate low.
