C2designers new website review

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Finished my site about 6 month ago. Hoping to figure out why the bounce rate is so high.
Please take a look at site and let me know if anything is hanging you up on your end. Any and all criticism is welcomed and appreciated.

I enjoyed your site. The only critique I have is that I'm not sure what it is you are selling... your service or your artwork. If both, maybe you should have a clear distinction on the Home page. I kind of got confused as to where I was navigating. Again, your work isn't the problem... I think it is your navigation and mission statement of what you are telling visitors. I'm working on my site as well... still stuck in 7.0 at the moment. I get a lot of traffic to my blogs, but I also have a super high bounce rate. I have to work on things... hope this helps.

Hey @C2designers!

The pop up is probably a big factor in the bounce rate. While they can be effective, I personally find them annoying and I will usually leave a site that has a pop up. Instead of a pop up, I would put a section on your page for the lead generator...that way people have the option of signing up if they want.

When someone lands on a website, the first thing they want to know is who you are and what you do. If they can't figure that out in .5 seconds, then they will leave. So right now, I'm looking at the page without scrolling...and I have no idea what you do, lol. It just says Gallery... does that mean you sell fonts? or that you designed a Jillian Michaels ad?

I think a big reason the bounce rate is high is because people land here and they are confused... they aren't sure if you have something they need, so instead of scrolling to find out the answer, they just leave.

I would probably pick a different color palette than the blue/green... the blue is a little harsh compared to the green. Also different fonts that complement each other would go a long way.

The site also needs clear call to action buttons... what action do you want people to take? Purchase a font? Book a designer?

Where did the name C2 come from? And does "designers" mean that this is a place like Etsy or 99 Designs where a bunch of designers sell their work? If I'm confused, then so are other people! 🙂

The Bio Links link in the footer should open up a new tab since it's an external link.

Hope that gets you headed in the right direction! Let me know if you have questions about anything 🙂
