Welcoming Websites: The Digital Handshake
by Angela Watt on 11/08/2023
It’s fair to say that over the last decade or so, face-to-face interactions were replaced by scrolling and clicking. So, in this new reality, how do you extend a warm, welcoming hand to your website’s visitors? Just as you wouldn't greet a guest with a limp handshake, your website shouldn't offer a lacklustre welcome. And in this almost digital-first world, your website is that all-important first handshake, setting the tone for all interactions to follow.
Why First Impressions Matter
Imagine walking into a shop with cluttered aisles, dim lighting, and no clear signs. You'd likely turn on your heel and walk right out. Similarly, a website that's confusing, slow, or visually unappealing can send potential customers clicking away faster than you can say "digital faux pas".
The Elements of a Welcoming Website
1. Intuitive Navigation: Just as you wouldn't hide the entrance to a shop, your website's navigation should be clear and accessible. Menus should be logically structured, and important information should never be more than a click or two away.
