How cool was that, right guys? Super awesome to have Pia on the show to share some web trends in 2019 to incorporate in helping you not only stand out, but to also enhance your user experience, keep users on your website longer, drive more leads, and so much more! Here were some of my key takeaways from today’s episode:
The power of video and why this should be on your website. The first 15 seconds are going to be super crucial here. And asking a question up front, such as, “Are you struggling with, XYZ?”, testimonial videos throughout your website and so much more can go a long way.
Why chatbots are going to play an ever-increasing role. This is not a first you have heard about this on the podcast, and I have already started using this for clients and have seen incredible results.
Integrative animations on your website. Gifs, screencasts and hovering motion users can experience when using their mouse to keep people on your website longer.
The Top 10 things to get into the dance party and open up the dance floor. First, you need to get invited, then you need to get to the red carpet, get past the bouncer, and eventually clear the dance floor. This all starts with the basics – a mobile ready site. Load speed, a blog with quality keywords and information on your topic, security and SSL security, hosting, video, and basic SEO, value proposition all come into play here as well.
