Popular wisdom states that most people make up their minds about someone within seven seconds of meeting them. And while that might seem extremely short, studies show that when it comes to websites, first impressions come even faster. According to Inc., most consumers form a first impression of a website in just 50 milliseconds. For comparison, the literal blink of an eye ranges between 300 to 400 milliseconds, which makes this statistic even more staggering. So how can you ensure your website is making the right first impression? You may be surprised by what you learn after some simple website comparison. Taking a hard look at what others in your industry are doing (and more importantly, how much success they're generating) can help you inform your own business approach and ensure you're making the best first impression possible.
