|Have you been noticing less traction and clickthroughs on your website recently? Not quite reaching the projected goals you’d forecast for the website?
IT may be a case of your website not proving to be as effective as it once was. With a constantly evolving and digitally savvy audience to cater for, your website can diminish in its effectiveness if it has remained stagnant. Every website has its own strengths and audience to play to, and failing to address the changes that may occur can lead to loss.
This may look like a loss of clickthroughs, smaller than usual traffic, and a loss or lack of engagement from your targeted audience.
To be sure that your website isn’t slipping through the cracks (and losing out on potential clients), check out our four tips for ascertaining the effectiveness of your website.

Your audience is more likely to engage in a website if it is simple to use and to achieve its purposes efficiently. It’s important to ensure that your audience does not spend too long looking for what they need. You may want to examine the loading time of the website (if there are large images or links that take a long time to load), if your website uses automatic navigation tabs or if there is simplicity in finding what you are looking for as a consumer on your website.

Identifying a clear and intended audience will help cement the exact purpose of your website, and ensure that it is effective in reaching its primary goal of meeting the audience’s needs and wants.
