KISS your website

October 3, 20143min0

Companies are losing one in five customers online by overcomplicating their websites

Ok, so it’s not “kiss” as in the lip smacker display of affection… It’s KISS as in “Keep It Simple Silly”…

KISS your website

Our research*, which benchmarked 166 companies in the UK, found that 21% of customers would leave a website immediately to find another provider if they encountered a problem when shopping online.

A third of customers find that they have to put in more effort than expected

The studies also revealed that on average 32% of customers had to put in more effort than expected on a particular website to achieve their desired task. The energy industry scored lowest with a substantial 40% of customers finding websites required too much effort.

While innovations in website design continue to evolve, understanding what’s required to simplify the customer’s buying journey is often misunderstood. Companies need to know how easy – and how difficult – it is to buy from them online.
It’s not necessarily about how companies would like to sell online; it’s about how easy you make it for consumers to make a purchase decision. We see companies realising an immediate online sales uplift once they change their approach.
