If your website is not generating enough leads that turn into profitable conversations, and your ‘hot’ leads are also being pursued by your competition – then the likely answer is ‘yes’.
You – like 80% of the Australian ICT companies whose websites we assessed – are probably not meeting your buyer at the right point in the buyer’s journey.
We recently reviewed the websites of 20 Australian B2B companies operating in the Information Technology (ICT) space and found that 16 of the 20 websites failed our simple, 10-criteria buyer engagement test.
The criteria focus was on measuring the effectiveness of the website and its content to attract and engage B2B buyers – wherever they may be on their buying journey – and hence to generate quality leads.
In other words, these websites don’t sell how buyers buy. They only cater to the small percentage of buyers who know what they want and are looking for specific product information – ignoring the buyers still searching around their problem, those framing generic solutions or those completely unaware that there might be a better way of doing things.
