Hello @rich-brooks @karlmorris
Hilarious – I’d say it was fun to watch, but I really felt the frustration the people felt in the videos because I’ve been there myself many times and actually – TODAY.
The best websites -
1 – Have no moving parts – nothing jiggles, shakes or moves across the screen. Videos play only if the viewer chooses the OPTION to allow them to play.
2 – No background music, ever – this does not enhance an online shopping environment or experience.
3 – Visually – as clean as possible – every page – no extra ads to distract the eye, or move them all to one side, out of the way. Plenty of white space so the eye and mind can focus on what’s important.
4 – No request for your first born child. Meaning, you don’t need my phone number, address, city, st, zip for me to download your FREE ebook or FREE manual.
5 – NO popups! No requests for phone no, address, email to read an article.
I’ll look at your website with my own speed – which is actually pretty fast if you don’t put a bunch of roadblocks in my way!
AND that’s what the article was telling us – those information gathering options, pop-ups – upsells, etc – are ruining the online shopping experience (that should be much faster online) for many shoppers and it’s frustrating!
