Users must be able to locate the “Add to Cart” button easily, so they can have a simple, quick, and trouble-free shopping experience.

Place the “Add to Cart” above the fold alongside the item price and make sure the button is different from the rest of the text on the page. 

To make sure the button stands out, try creating the button a different color, font or even in bold. You can also make the button interactive so it can pop out when the cursor lands on it.

Does your website have the “Add to Cart” button easily visible?

Getting to the point quick is the key to advertising. Especially online.

When posting products or services, make sure that all the important information is “above the fold.” This way your users are able to see it as soon as the page loads.

Content should always be high on the screen so users don’t have to scroll to get any pertinent information.

This usually leads to lower bounce rates, higher engagement rates, and users spending more time on your website.

Does your website have its important information at the top of the page?

8 Step Product Page Checklist – Step 4: Quick Loading Media

8 Step Product Page Checklist – Step 4: Quick Loading Media

Hi-resolution images and videos are essential to any modern website, but even the sharpest definition is useless if the media is slow to loads – especially in e-commerce.

Shoppers want product photos that are large, detailed, have zoom in/out abilities, and load fast, but some of these features may cause a site to lag.

If bigger image files are allowed to hamper loading pages this can hurt SEO ranking, keeping a site and its potential visitors disconnected.

Most importantly, however, sluggish loading pages will irritate your shoppers and send them running to another online vendor.

So it’s crucial to strike that balance between speed and aesthetics. Examine your site’s photo web-ready compression capabilities and allow them to do their work.

These will condense any files while preserving their quality, streamlining the connection so your visitors have the best user experience available.

How quick on the draw are the images loading into your website?

8 Step Product Page Checklist– Step 2: Tracking Code Check

Tracking website conversions is important when examining where a business’s site has room to improve.  Without understanding your audience’s interests, how do you expect to know what they’re interested in?

OptFirst recommends using Google Tag Manager (GTM) to centralize tag management and make advanced tracking a breeze.  GTM can also help boost a website’s speed, enabling businesses to function faster and possibly raise the site’s search engine ranking.

But the best part is that GTM eliminates the hassle of hard coding tags.

Another important program to simplify conversion tracking is Facebook Pixel.   With the data it provides, FB Pixel allows you to create custom audiences, optimizing conversions.  Plus, it develops lookalike audiences, compiling a group of people likely to be interested in your business based on their similarities with your existing customers.

FB Pixel can kick-off any remarketing efforts whenever you’d like, too. 

Depending on your site’s main source of conversions, your business needs to incorporate the corresponding method of tracking.  These are the “trails” to follow when out on the hunt to bring home the score.
