In the last 3 years, we’ve consulted with over 3,000 website owners from around the world. We’ve pored through their analytics, monitored ranking, and spoke in-depth about how their sites are working for them. Until now, we’ve never done anything with this information other than use it to inform our own internal design and development processes and base our trainings (both internal and through MarketingU) on.
Enter… What Makes a Ninja Website?
But now we’re lifting the lid on our observations. What are the common threads amongst websites that generate a lot of phone calls? What’s the optimum homepage layout for email form submissions? How do the most successful websites organise their navigation if they have a lot of pages? The answers to all these questions (and many more) we’re now releasing into the wild through a free PDF: What Makes a Ninja Website. This is the document we use to coach our own designers and development team on how we do things, but we thought that other people might find it useful too so we decided to make it publicly available. Sure, this means more people have some of our closely guarded Ninja secrets, but if that leads to some better-designed, more user-friendly and higher converting websites then it’s totally worth it.
