5 Ways to ruin your website

Are you looking to completely ruin your website, your credibility and destroy all chances of your business becoming a success? Well that’s great because if you hate online success, generating traffic and making sales, then we’ve got a run down of 5 of the easiest and best ways that you can ruin your website and guarantee nobody will want to purchase your products or services ever again. 

Never update your website 

Never ever updating your website is a great way to make sure that no visitor ever comes back to your website. If a potential customer visits your website today and then comes back in a year to see exactly the same information, they’re going to assume you have nothing new to offer them. Which will lead them to go to a website which offers something new. So if you want to alienate your customers and drive them to your competitors then never updating your website is a great way to do so.

Not having a responsive design 

In the age of technology there are likely to be many people browsing the internet on a mobile or tablet device, so if you’re looking to completely miss out on hundreds of potential customers then go ahead and don’t have a responsive, mobile friendly design.  

No call to actions 

A call to action can be a great way to entice customers into enquiring about service or buying a product. So whatever you do, if you’re looking to ensure nobody wants to or is curious about buying your product or service, don’t feature call to actions anywhere at all on your website.

Busy design

There is nothing that will make your visitors want to leave your website more than if it is complicated, cluttered and hard to navigate. Featuring lots of confusing images, links, banners, forms and pop-ups can often scare away any potential customers and lead them to go to your competitors much less confusing and simpler website, just the result you wanted, right?

Have poor quality content

Poor quality text, blurry images and not featuring relevant, search engine optimised information, they’re all a recipe for an unsuccessful website. Not only will featuring boring and useless information drive your visitors away but not including SEO text is a sure fire way to make sure your website doesn’t stand a chance of getting found in search engines results and by any potential customers.
