AE Tip 2: Have a solid, easy to use website.
As a business, your website is your homebase. It’s a central hub for information, pricing, contact info, sales, and more. Every business should have a website accessible to current and potential customers.
The essentials for a basic website
Your site should include home, product, contact, and about pages. These pages can be fused together in any way that you feel best for your business.Your homepage is the first page people will see when clicking on your site, so it should give anyone visiting a clear and concise message of what your business is all about and what it provides.
You want your website to be easy for visitors to navigate. The easier to use, the more time they may spend on your website because they aren’t frustrated. A part of a website being easy to use can be how you decide to break it up. Some consumers like everything on separate pages, while others will enjoy an experience of endless scrolling. Ultimately you will decide on how to do it, but you should keep it in mind and try to find a balance for the two that would fit the needs of your target audience.
