14) The BackPage: Elements of a Great Agency Web Site

This morning, a Volunteer with our agency sent me a URL for a missions website that she felt was exceptional. It got me to thinking: What makes a great agency website? What are some of the components that set a great website apart, for you? And likewise, what are the elements or components that turn you off? I’ll share some of my own thoughts; you agree, disagree, expand, ok?

What makes them great? The best summary I’ve found actually comes from (Small Business Marketing, Feb. 28, 2012). Find it here.

The article concludes that you need good visual design, great content, simple yet effective navigation, a clear call to action, credibility, and viewability from a mobile phone. (By the way, have you looked at your site on a mobile phone? :-) )

The website-killers were stated as stale content, too much content, no photos, looking illegitimate, and being bland.
