We all make judgements based on lots of subliminal information and if you don’t impress someone within these four seconds then you’re losing potential revenue and a new customer.

Think of a day when you’ve been working hard and you’ve missed lunch, or heading out to a late lunch with a rumbling tummy. In the few seconds it takes you to walk past your local sandwich shop, your brain takes in countless amounts of data:

The guy making the sandwiches is sneezing; none of the staff are wearing hats to protect the food from their hair  Another staff member is handling delivery boxes whilst wearing food preparation gloves  Two tables by the window are stained with dried coffee; the window sill features a few dead flies

So, how hungry are you? You’ll probably walk on to the next food shop! We make decisions like this every day, and most are subtle subliminal pointers that help us with our decision making and are instantaneous online.

Ecommerce Website Design To Attract and Retain Business

The same principles apply to websites, if a user has a poor impression he or she is going to walk right by to the next website and they may not even know why, there was just something about the website and it was too subtle to quite put a finger on it.
Offering a cheap competitive price is not enough in the 21st century: you need to create a good impression in an instant. The website needs to demonstrate solid quality and trust. As most visitors are unlikely to know your company or brand, they’ll make a decision about your company based entirely on what they see on your website, as well as reading reviews on Google, TrustPilot or other online review sites.
To capture the attention of any visitors, you need:

  • A visually pleasing, smart and professional design
  • Something that will grab the users attention – a catchy sales call to action, a special offer or benefit (Free UK shipping) etc
  • Content that is well written, relevant, meaningful and highly informative
  • Photographs and professional images that are of a high standard A menu structure that is clean and easy to navigate throughout website and shop categories

Passing visitors decide within 4 seconds whether to stay on your website or to move on – impress don’t digress.
