Does your website have buzz? | Have you got the online X factor?

 

What makes a site buzzworthy?
It’s hard to quantify, but it’s safe to say that a combination of: -

eye catching design
dynamic page layoutBuzz-Worthy
clear navigation
audio clips
news boxes
free give-aways or bonuses
regularly updated pages
quotes and recommendations


as well as great copy, all go together to create a site with the X factor.
If your site has buzz, not only will your visitors stay around long enough
to find out what you’re offering them, but they will tell others about you too,
and this builds your traffic, so you get noticed and it puts you in a great
position to get ahead, as well as bringing you an important return on your investment.

Websites that have the greatest marketing successes are buzzworthy,
they have that almost indefinable X factor.
How do you get the X factor?

Well, buzzworthiness is a bit intangible,
but you recognise it sure enough when you see it. 
A website with the buzz stands out, it makes you feel that the content is
written with you in mind and most important of all;
it makes you stay and browse the site, not just the first page!

If you website content is not oriented towards your site visitor then they will leave,
and fast check your page bounce rates if you are not convinced.

You need to focus your page content not only on the product or service you are
offering but also promote the benefits of what you offer.  


Here are some tips for a website with buzz:

And remember to choose an eye catching design, mediocre isn’t buzzworthy
Make the copy (the words on the page) exciting as well as interesting
Be newsworthy, be doing or offering something different.
Be seen as notable, influential and knowledgeable.
Offer something useful and free.
Look outstanding
Be dynamic
Just be exceptional

Remember to be yourself, your ‘voice’ needs to shine out of your website giving it your own special personality.  

Remember to speak to your visitor not at them. 
They don’t want to be sold something on the first page, they want information.
  Tell them about how your service or product benefits them,
what you can offer them, and how much you can help them achieve their goals.

If you focus on what your site visitor wants then they will stay to find out more,
and you may just have found a new customer.  

I promise to focus on this one more often ...

If you focus on ‘selling’ yourself or your products without showing that they are
of value to your website visitor, then you will lose your visitors interest and a potential client.
