A combined 50 years of web development talent brought together.
Mitch Rezman – SuperEZSystems.com
I’ve been a full-time webmaster for 14 years in that time I’ve built or have led a team to build more than 100 sites. 13 have been e-commerce sites – we currently operate seven sites (in five languages) and are looking to deploy an Australian e-commerce website.
Our core site is been on 4 platforms with seven hosts is currently just under 16000 pages. One of the things that I’ve learned is there is not a stitch of evidence that redesigning a website will improve its performance.
The problem most business owners run into when they commissioned the building website is they fall in love with the design and colors and they allow the design to be driven by their likes and wants.
We have a love-hate relationship with social media. We used to love showcasing our Facebook fan page with 300,000 fans but I have become the Mephistopheles of social media
As an example of “test for” versus “I’m in love with” – 45 days ago we removed every social media icon and sharing button on our site. We have seen approximately a .3% increase in conversion which is actually a big number in terms of revenue
All the experts have been very consistent in how important having the right social media icons are on your website. But when you sit back in the middle of the night sipping cold glass of whiskey the voices in your head start saying things like why are we sending visitors to Facebook and twitter? Do they really need our help? Why not that those platforms send us the traffic?
Most people and website developers build websites backwards starting with things like the homepage. We start on the checkout/conversion page and work our way forward because that’s where you want the customer to end up – at the bottom of the funnel collecting their payment or whatever information you are seeking to move forward in the sales process
As for the investment in electronic media as someone mentioned – actually that’s really minimal and cost pennies. Word press blog hosting starts at five dollars a month. We spend about $800 a month just to keep our website functional with plug-ins and services. Will be adding $400 a month just in enterprise site search because the improved customer experience should return a decent ROI
The big money (and time) is driving traffic to the website. Factoid 95% of all websites on the Internet get less than 30 visitors a month. When you launch your website you competing with approximately 125,000 websites that were launched today. It’s not about building a site is about getting the site found.
Factoid everybody talks a good game on it comes to video and puts them on their site – Google will ignore all the videos on your site in spite of the fact they are on YouTube unless you have a video site map
We know about responsive design and will be shifting our current independent mobile site to a responsive design but it’s been a hell of an education integrating and running the mobile site as a secondary site trying to provide the same user experience on the desktop site which have come to find is impossible.
It’s also interesting building in cultivating android and iOS apps for your site – I’ve been a DOS Windows guy for 30 years – suddenly I own two iPads (primarily to view the mobile site in iOS but also is a POS system for our storefront) – very foreign – I’ll get over it.
Whenever someone wants to eschew their fantastic design abilities I tell them to look at the most valuable piece of web real estate that’s worth billions and tell me about the complexity of the
homepage design – does this look like it’s worth billions of dollars? https://www.google.com/
As for copywriting I found Dragon NaturallySpeaking to be one of my best friends (next to John Jameson:-) I find there aren’t enough hours in the day to write about all the feedback that I get from interacting with tens of thousands of people every day.
