How important is online visibility and user experience?

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s the importance of having an effective digital presence to fall back on, should your brick and mortar doors have to close. This means having a website that is not only easy to use but that can also easily be found by your target customers. That’s where website optimisation comes in and where the Digital MOT report can guide you.

According to Google, 95% of all car sales start online

What happens once you receive your report?

Once you receive your personalised report, it’s up to you to take action to improve the areas that require the most attention, to help improve your online visibility and user experience.

Of course, to do this, you’ll likely need some assistance from expert web developers and experienced website performance professionals - and that’s where Blue Mantis can come in.
