Wordy Wednesday #4- October 2015 #PicturePrompt

Welcome to the last Wednesday of the month. Let’s get started with our blogging tip and WW prompt for the week.

VISIT YOUR HOMEPAGE FOR THE “FIRST TIME”

We all know that first impressions leave lasting impressions and this is especially true online, where the attention span is less than that of a goldfish. When you have a new visitor on your blog, you have less than 10 seconds to impress him. It is these 10 seconds that will decide whether he will stick around or leave. So, what can you do?

Role play.

Imagine that you are a brand new visitor to your site. Go to your homepage and ask yourself the following questions

  1. What do I notice first?
  2. Can I understand exactly what the site is about without scrolling or clicking anything?
  3. Have I seen other sites like this before?
  4. How easy is the website to navigate?
  5. What seems to be missing?

By quickly answering these 5 questions, you can easily see what kinds of things need to happen to improve your blog/site. Maybe it’s just as easy as making some fonts larger, or taking away some annoying advertisements or pop-ups or a ticking clock.

Go on and visit your homepage for the ‘first time’ and review and reflect on it. How do the answers look like? We are listening… 🙂
