The Internet has billions of web pages all competing for the interest of web users.  Within any given industry there can be thousands or millions of websites.  Once they are discovered, your site visitors will make a snap decision as to whether or not they want to continue viewing your website.

The Initial Impression

The immediate impression someone gets of your website will determine whether or not they stay on your site or hit the “back” button.  It is very important that your site be easy on the eyes, easy to navigate and clear in its purpose.

Using videos on your homepage is a great idea. But make sure you use a method that loads and plays your videos quickly. If people have to wait for your video to buffer, they will very quickly get frustrated and leave.

Have a clean and clear landing page and you will be able to capture the interest of more people.

Make sure it takes less than 1-second for someone visiting your site to know what you are about.  If you sell watches make sure there are watches on the landing page.  If you are a lawyer make sure your landing page says where you practice and the type of law your practice.  You have less than 2-seconds to make an impression, so make it count.

Contact Information

Contact information is important.  If you have a website, there is no reason to use Gmail, Yahoo, AOL or other similar email addresses.  Have an email address set for your specific domain.  People will question the credibility of a website that uses free types of email address services.

Have a phone number on your website – even if it is for a virtual phone system that takes a message or forwards the calls to your home or cell phone.  Consumers want to see phone numbers on websites.

Quality of Content

The quality of your website content is vital.  Make sure it is well written, error-free, clear and concise.  Your failure on any one of these three points will make you lose credibility in the eyes of your target market.

Consider the above tips and make sure your website conveys your are a professional, and that you what you are talking about as it relates to your product or service.
