How to Capture leads from website
A website is one of the most fundamental marketing tool for your business in today’s times. We are living in highly competitive times and it is not easy for a small business to survive. Things have changed and so has means of marketing. A small business cannot afford to spend huge amount of money just on advertising. Print ads, radio commercials and television ads are too costly and most of the times beyond the budget of a small business.
Definitely there are many means by which you can get business but nothing is as effective as a website, particularly in today’s times. A website can be developed at a much lesser cost and has far more reach than any other medium. Once you get a website it is important that you display your contact number, email id and address so that the user can reach you easily. A better idea is to have your contact number at the top right position of website or it should be placed at a position on web page where it is easily visible. Having your contact number on the home page makes a lot of difference as many users do not go to the contact page of website.
Having a contact form on your website is also very important as many users prefer to communicate through email. Do make sure that you contact form is working. Do include your email id, contact number, and address on the contact page of your website so that users find it easy to reach you. Having your address map on the website is also very useful for users looking for your address or location.

I have been making websites for a good period of time. From my experience i have learned that on should avoid some common mistakes while making a website. Please read on..
Avoid Flash: Although i love flash and being a web designer it is the best tool to show my creativity, i have reduced the use of flash on websites as many handheld devices like smartphones, ipads do not play flash movie. And if you want to play it you either need to install a different browser or plugin. Most people don’t take such pains and would easily miss out the information that you put on flash movie.
Don’t Use Lengthy contact forms: People generally avoid filling up a lengthy contact form a contact form should be precise. But if your requirement is such where every details are important you may go otherwise.
Keep your website navigation simple: The important pages of website should be easily accessible to a user and the navigation should not be complicated. It is good to have your links in text form as it can be more easily read by search engines.
Images should be optimized: The images on your web page should be well optimized with proper alt tags and naming.
Content:The content on your website should be informative and precise.
Avoid audio or music: Do not use audio or music that plays automatically when the website loads as it can be annoying for website visitors.
Avoid Pop Ups: Personally as a user i find pop ups quite distracting. Specially on small devices like smart phones these pop ups cover up the whole screen and it becomes really difficult to get rid of them. Use a pop up only when required . Permanent pop ups are big turn offs.
Spelling Mistakes: Always use a spell checker when writing content for website. Spelling mistakes leave a bad impression on your website visitors.
