Increase Conversions & Organic Rank with a Customer-centric Website

Customer-centric website design is the process of designing and developing a website around the needs and wants of the target audience.

It involves understanding a customer’s goals, pain points, and journey, and then creating a website that makes it easy for them to find the right information.

A customer-centric website plays a pivotal role in enhancing both conversion rates and organic reach.  By ensuring that customers have easy access to comprehensive information, a website not only fosters satisfaction but also attracts favorable attention from search engines.

A study by Search Engine Land found that websites with a focus on user experience saw a 17% increase in organic traffic over six months.

Modern Web Design understands the importance of web design and customer experience and works with our clients to create a website that customers will enjoy!

Benefits of a Customer-centric Design

Increased Website Traffic

When websites are designed with the customer in mind, they are more likely to be ranked higher in search engine results pages (SERPs). This means that more people will see your website when they are searching for information online.

Improved Conversion Rates

Customer-centric websites make it easy for customers to find the information they are looking for and take action, such as making a purchase or signing up for a newsletter.  A happy web visitor is more ikely to become a returning customer.

Customer Satisfaction & Brand Loyalty

Customer-centric websites can enhance customer satisfaction and build brand loyalty by providing a positive and seamless user experience. This leads to increased customer lifetime value, driving business growth and profitability.
