Quiz Time! Can You Keep a Visitor?
A lot can happen in 60 seconds – in life and on the Web.
According to Monetate’s most recent E-Commerce Quarterly report, for example, it’s within the first minute of an online shopping session that brands lose 30 percent of their site visitors.
So how can your enterprise extend the session time of its clients and prospects? Focus in on usability.
Usability – how easily a user can interact with a digital presence – is key to reducing bounce rate and keeping a visitor engaged. Websites and applications, at the very least, must be responsive, provide descriptive, yet clear and concise navigation paths, and most importantly, be relevant to a person’s reason for being there. Websites and applications also need to be glitch-free, intuitive and add value to a user’s life in order to be deemed worthy of interaction. There’s a lot to understand about usability and the time to get started is now.
