083: Is Your Website Guest Friendly?

Where do I go from here?

Having a website is a wonderful thing, but the problem a lot of first-time guests have, they don’t enjoy the experience. In today’s episode, I tackle this idea that guests come first and that we should be giving them a quality user experience.

When we take the time to care how a guest feels on our website, we’ll make fast friends and they’ll want to come around again and again. I’ve seen so many websites where I simply click away because of a bad about page or lack of a contact page. If we want to take things to the next level, we must put that user experience first.

5 Tips to Crafting a Better About Page!
