Unlocking Your Website’s Potential: Why Your Website is Stuck in Second Gear

Welcome to Motivation Monday – your weekly dose of inspiration and practical advice to make running your business a breeze with business owner Kelly Thomas! In just 5 minutes, I'll share a fantastic tip to boost your efficiency and take your small business or nonprofit to new heights. So, let's dive right in and make this Monday the most motivated one yet!

Let’s talk websites today. Your website is the engine that propels your business online. So tell me honestly - Is it stuck in 2nd gear? Your website serves as the window to your business – the very first impression your visitors get. And you know what I often find when speaking with potential clients? The reason they are stuck in second gear is that their websites lack a clear message. As a result, visitors are confused about what their business offers and leave their website for their competitors. It's like showing your users a webpage with nothing but a blurry image and expecting them to figure it out. Trust me – they aren’t sticking around to figure it out.

The Power of a Clear Vision

Small businesses with well-defined website goals experience a 30% increase in website engagement. If you want to get out of second gear, you need a vision! Once you have a clear vision, it's time to update your website so it is responsive to your visitors' needs. Research shows that websites with responsive design enjoy a 25% higher conversion rate. And let's not forget about the importance of making your website mobile-friendly! If your website is stuck in gear, outdated, or your SEO hasn't been updated in over a year, it's time for some changes. Embrace change fearlessly – your website must evolve and adapt, or you will be left behind. Small businesses with regular website updates experience an incredible 20% increase in online leads. That's a significant growth opportunity you don’t want to miss!
