No Access to Quick Quote Form
Quick Quote Form is an easy and effective customer outreach tool that lets your prospective buyers get in touch with you on the fly. It’s generally place in the right hand sidebar of your service pages so the visitors can immediately request a quote no matter which page they are browsing on your website.
If you don’t have a quick quote form on your website, you make it challenging and time-consuming for the potential buyer to reach out to you and place a request. This can frustrate many visitors that are willing to raise a query with you immediately.

No Access to Contact Page
Contact Page on your website is one of the most important pages that entice your would-be customers to quickly contact you so they could get information on your products and services.
It presents an opportunity to generate leads and boost conversion. However, if you don’t place a contact us page right where it’s easily visible to your visitors, then you may potentially be losing out on the golden opportunity to make a sale or earn a customer.
Remember, from a visitor’s point of view, “If it’s not visible, it doesn’t exist”.
No Empathy for Customers
Sometimes, the visitors at your website may not get what they are looking for. At a physical store, you have an opportunity to learn what the customer is looking by interacting with him face to face, but on your website, you have do it with the help of a call to action.
This is a great way to empathize with the visitors and address their concerns. This simple step can save a prospective customer from leaving your website and move on to another website to search what they are looking for.
No Test Drive Opportunity
You think your product is great and the price is unbeatable. But wait, it may not be strong enough a reason for your prospective customers to buy your products.
The customer has a right to be skeptic about the promises you’ve made. He wants to test drive your products before committing to a long-term relationship. Give them a trial offer and they are most likely to convert into a paying customer moving forward if they find your product satisfactory.
If you website doesn’t offer a trial offer for a specific period of time, you may be losing out on a potential client acquisition opportunity.
Hope these points will help you take a look at your website with a fresh perspective and make it more compelling for your visitors.
