When it comes to the online presence of an organization, a website is the “face” of a company. Depending on certain factors, a website creates the very first impression on a consumer, or in other words, a potential client. Consumers are looking for certain components on a company website to decide whether they want to use their services or not. 

Companies have seconds to capture the attention of potential clients with their websites. Various factors of user experience help with capturing and keeping people interested in your company or services.

Here are some key factors consumers look for within a company’s website:
