You may be losing thousands of dollars on your website and not even know it.

Maximize your return on your website with professional design and fast responses to leads.

You’re losing thousands of dollars on your website and might not even know it. You have a site and a marketing team, and traffic flows in. But your site — and business — may fail because you’re losing customers and conversions. Maximize your return on your website now by having Spearhead Multimedia review and improve it.


Leads fail to convert because of poor user interface, slow speeds, and bad design practices. If your site isn’t optimized for SEO, it gets even worse: leads will never land on the site in the first place.

How much does a website cost?

Small websites cost $1500 to $7,000. Your costs will vary depending on whether you use a template, hire a developer, and the complexity of the site. Sites with hundreds of pages, expert optimization, and design can cost $10,000 to $20,000. Your initial investment can’t be recuperated if your site isn’t optimized correctly or set up to convert leads into sales.

Site visitors have higher expectations, and sites must meet a growing list of requirements. You need a snappy site, and it must be accessible. However, you must also capture the correct data from your forms, continually optimize your site, and fill in the leaks causing you to lose money.

Is your website investment worth it?

Small business owners lose customers, even with a well-functioning website, because they don’t know how to utilize the data available to them. So, after all, is your website investment worth it, and if so, how can you maximize your return on your investment?

Nobody tells you that web forms can cost you a lot of money.

Forms are boring input fields to failing site owners and a goldmine to successful ones. What are leads doing when they enter data into the form? Are errors causing potential customers or clients to leave the site? According to WP Forms, more than 67% of site visitors will abandon your form forever if they encounter any complications; only 20% will follow up with the company somehow. Analyzing how users interact with forms is especially critical for small businesses, which may not have as many opportunities as giant corporations. They can identify common issues such as broken forms, confusing fields, or errors. This insight allows small businesses to simplify and optimize the form-filling process, improving the overall user experience and significantly increasing the chances of conversion. Thankfully, you can use a form tracking system that will help pinpoint data entry problems and missed opportunities, ensuring that small businesses are not carelessly losing leads.

Fixing issues found in the test phase can save you a lot of money if you regularly test your forms and sales funnel.


Data is the king of website optimization

Analytic data is the king of website optimization, but you need to know what to look for and how to make changes. For example, if your site has a high bounce rate, it may look like it was designed in 1999 or take 15 seconds to load.

Bounce rate means users are leaving the site on the page of entry, and there are multiple areas for improvement.

Review your site speed and follow PageSpeed Insights’ recommendations to optimize your site. Try to bring loading time down to two to three seconds at most. Complex navigation and poor-quality landing pages can also cost you sales. Work with a copywriter to optimize your sales funnel copy.

Data will help businesses pinpoint where users engage most frequently and where they face obstacles. With careful analysis of this data, companies can optimize every aspect of their website, from navigation to content.

Essential aspects of a high-converting website

To maximize your return, you must have a high-converting website. They all have a lot in common:


Expertly written content, with the help of a copywriter, will allow you to hit on the pain points of leads and close more sales. Hooks and storytelling from an experienced copywriter can help you turn a low-performing sales funnel into one that exceeds sales forecasts.


Poor design practices cause sites to fail. Yahoo! is a prime example. The site was once Google’s biggest competitor, but with the bland and outdated design, the bounce rate was high, and people flocked to Google.

Work with a design team like Spearhead Multimedia to create a functional, feature-rich site that appeals to your target demographic.

Lead capture forms

High-converting sites use lead capture forms to collect basic visitor information, such as their email or phone number.

In exchange for providing information, leads receive something valuable, such as a discount or free eBook.

Once a user provides their email address or phone number, you can start nurturing them and eventually convert them into customers. It’s important to note again that receiving instant notifications about broken forms and issues is a solution to avoid losing potential customers.

Call-to-action: More than just a button

Call-to-actions (CTAs) tell visitors what to do next, such as signing up for a newsletter, purchasing, or scheduling a consultation. They play a crucial role in improving your site’s conversion rates.

Without them, visitors would leave your site without action, resulting in lost opportunities to convert leads.

To increase conversions, CTAs must be clear and concise and use action-oriented language, like “Buy now” or “Contact us.” Tell your visitors exactly what to do next so there’s no confusion and they feel confident taking the next step.

CTAs are highly effective at improving conversion rates, but visitor behavior can change over time. Testing and optimizing your site’s CTAs can help maximize your conversion rate and adapt to changing user behavior.

Ensure you’re engaging in A/B testing to determine which CTA works best for your audience.

You must respond to leads right away.

Research shows that 78% of customers purchase from the first responder. Surveys also show that the highest-ranking companies in lead response audit reports respond to leads in 30 minutes or less. The quicker you respond, the better. Conversion rates can be as much as eight times higher if you react in the first five minutes.

Every minute that passes increases the chance that the lead will move on to a competitor.

How can you improve your lead response time? Start by automating your lead qualification process to identify and prioritize high-quality leads. Track the lead from start to finish and pinpoint the issues that leads are facing. Set response time goals, train your reps, and streamline your lead management processes to reach out to leads as quickly as possible.


You spend thousands of dollars on a website. To maximize your return, you must ensure that your site has all the elements to increase conversion rates. Once these elements are in place, you must respond to leads immediately to seal the deal.
