3. Use Icons

Adding simple icons in content boxes can drastically enhance a web page. Icons can guide user to the utility of a page without the need to actively read what the content are. The more visual cue's you can give your users, the more engaged they will be.

4. Create White Space

Creating space around page elements is often overlooked. Adding a bit of empty space around elements can go a long way in enhancing your Site. Rather have too much white space than too little. Cluttered pages tend to have higher bounce rates.

5. Use Simple Stand-Out CTAs

Call to Actions on pages such as Contact Us, Request Quote, Order Now should stand out on a page to attract attention. To make them stand out, your site must have predefined rules related to CTAs. CTAs should all conform to specific colour and size rules. If you are not sure how many rules you should have, stick to one colour and one size for all your CTAs. This will lead to a more consistent experience and higher engagement and conversions.
