4 Ways To Improve Your Website User Engagement

1 – Capture Hot Leads With Online Forms

Also called lead-forms these come in all different shapes and sizes.  Most email marketing applications like Constant Contact, MailChimp or Infusion Soft have them.  You can customize these forms to collect as little or as much information as you deem relevant. For example: collecting their website, familiarizes you with their industry, and prepares you for a follow up call.  Always include a lead source field to keep track of your marketing efforts.  A SalesForce study found that companies that excel at lead nurturing generate 50 percent more sales-ready leads at 33 percent lower cost.  Check out this effective example we used at The DiJulius Group, THE authority on Customer Experience Consulting.

Creative website design uses online forms

Two things to keep in mind when creating your online forms:
• Include the right number of fields, remove unnecessary fields.
• Have a strong call-to-action. 72% of B2B marketers don’t have any calls-to-action on their interior pages. Don’t be shy and tell them what to do next: Subscribe.

2 – Reduce Number of Visitors Lost with A Mobile Friendly Design

Go ahead, look at your website on your mobile device.  If it isn’t mobile friendly, you’ll see the full-size website shrunk down to fit on the small screen of a mobile phone.  Nearly 8 in 10 customers would stop engaging with content that doesn’t display well on their device – SWEOR.

• Does it have an intro or welcome video?

  • Awareness: Casting the widest net.

  • Nurturing: Communicating and guiding users with different levels of interest down the funnel.

  • Conversion: Capturing the information of someone who has become interested in doing business with your brand.
