Inside the mind of a visitor to your website.

Inside the mind of a visitor to your website.

So after months of planning youíve finally got your brand new web site up and running.
 
Everyone who you have asked, friends, family, employees etc. think its great (particularly your mum she loves it!) I mean it clearly says why you are a great company, how fantastic your products/services are, so whatís not to like about it?
 
Then you sit back pleased with yourself and wait for the phone to ringÖ

But of course itís not about you is it? Itís all about your customer and this is actually whatís going through their mind when they arrive on your site:

I have found your site and instantly Iím looking for a reason to leave. Iíll need lots of reasons to stay, but just one will make me leave

I donít trust you. You may have matched my search on Google & it looks like you might have what I need, but I still donít trust you. I am going to browse all over your site and try to find reasons to confirm my suspicions. Ah ha jack of all tradesÖ no thank you, Ooh only started 3 months ago, clearly no credibility, Any spelling mistakes or broken links, could be shoddy workmanship, no attention to detail, perhaps that will be how you deal with me too?

Iím impatient. Get to the point quickly demonstrate to me that you know what I need and that you can deliver it. I donít want to go trawling your site for more information until I know Iím in the right place

Iím selfish. Iím only interested in me, I donít care about your business, I care about me & whether you can deliver the product/service/solution I need. Iím completely not interested in all the other things you sell or do, just the one thing I need.

Iím confused: What do I do now? How do I contact you? How do I order? Why is it so difficult to find this information on your site? There are so many options I donít know which to click.

Iím suspicious. Is your payment gateway secure? Can I trust you not to spam my email address or sell it to someone else who will? Will my order ever arrive? Who have you worked with before? Did you do a good job?


I really need to be told what I need and how I can get it. Please make it easy for me.

The UK Law now requires us to get consent from you for the use of cookies.

A cookie is a small file containing text and numbers generated by the website and passed from your browser back to our website when you revisit the site.

A cookie is used here to allow you to navigate the site, log in etc. Without this cookie (called a session cookie), this site would not work properly and so this has already been set.

We use a popular statistics tool called Google Analytics which uses non invasive cookies to allow us to find out how effective our marketing is, based on referencing how you got to our website (search engine, direct, or from another site etc).

We use an animation based rotating image which uses a cookie to know which image was last displayed so that as you move from page to page you are not seeing the same image every time.

We can also make use of third party services such as video clip players which can set cookies, for example to enable them to know that you part played a video clip previously, or to store customised settings such as brightness or volume. Close
