Before site visitors scan (not read) one lick of content on your WordPress blog site, they take in the overall look or gestalt (a configuration or pattern of elements so unified as a whole that it cannot be described merely as a sum of its parts).
In other words, the first impression is not formulated by one thing unless there is something horrendously glaring about the site. Visitors look at the whole package and yes, great design does matter.
Converting Traffic to Leads
A self-hosted WordPress site that is configured properly for server to search engine comunication will get placement, no doubt about it. But if you want to convert all that traffic to leads, you must offer informative and engaging content as well as smart navigation and great design. Your visitors will leave in a millisecond if your site is humdrum and boring, the navigation is confusing and/or your content is impersonal and weak.
The same goes for sites that are all property search, call to action and lead generation forms without equal emphasis on engaging content. Visitors are not spiders or bots. Yes, they may use your property search, but they won’t bother filling out your forms or pick up the phone and call you if your site lacks the personal touch. Site visitors are real people and they need to connect with a real person.
WordPress SEO Blog Design, Usability and Performance
There are many reasons why we prefer StudioPress themes running the Genesis framework over other WordPress themes. They are easily customizable, look fantastic in the hands of a skilled designer, have super smart navigation and SEO features and update with one click of a button. That being said, it does take a bit of know-how to customize and configure a StudioPress blogging system to not only look great but perform well in the SERPs.
Yes, there are many WordPress companies on the Internet offering their services but not all of them are skilled designers AND SEO experts like Get Found Now. Most of the WordPress makeovers we take on are either poorly designed from the get-go, are improperly configured for server to search engine communication, have content issues or a combination of all of the above.
We are experts in WordPress SEO blog design and optimized content written for people. We will configure your WordPress blog for search engine placement and if you follow our SEO content writing game plan, you will succeed. As I said before, it’s not just one thing that converts traffic. It’s a combination of great design, smart navigation and personalization (engaging content) that gets you more leads!
