Web design for golf clubs
There are a lot of golf clubs out there and you need to stand out. One of the best ways to do this is to have a good website that offers potential visitors all the information they need. If you are new to web design, there are some tips that you can use to ensure the website for your golf club helps you more than it hinders.
Make use of images
Images of your course will have more impact than words. It is much easier for someone to visualise themselves playing a round when they know what the green looks like. Of course, you do need to be picky when it comes to the pictures you use.
You should look at hiring a professional photographer to take high-resolution images of your course. When you place them on your website, you will need to compress the image to make it load faster. There is no point in having amazing images if your visitors are not willing to wait for them to load.
Have a good history page
Retail businesses will have an about page and you need to have one as well. Personal and historical information can be very compelling for people. This does need to be a separate page and you should not include all the information on your home page.
There are a few ways that you can present this information to make it more appealing. If blocks of text look terrible, you can try a timeline of the major events at your club. If you have images related to the history of the club, you should include them to break up the text.
A responsive web design
While images and a history page are important, they will not help if you do not have a responsive design. Responsive designs are able to adapt to the screen they are being viewed on. This means that your website will adjust to mobile devices and ensure that everyone has the best experience.
This is something that you need to have because the search engines prioritise responsive websites. Additionally, more people are using mobile devices to search for what they want including golf clubs. If your website does not adjust to their screen, they are going to leave.
Good calls to action
You might not think that you need a call to action because you are not really selling anything. This is a mistake and you need to have a well planned and placed call to action. The call to action is prompt to take the visitor to the next step could be anything from calling you to visiting you.
A good call to action will be placed in a prominent area of the website. Research has found that the header is generally the best place for this, but anywhere above the fold of your website will work. If your visitor has to scroll down to see the call to action, it has not been placed correctly.
If you want to get visitors to call you, you will need to have your phone number clearly stated. You can also use coding that allows people on mobile devices to tap on the call to action and call you. It is also important that you embed a contact form on every age of your website.
Web design can play a large role in the online visibility of your golf club. This is why you need to ensure that you have a responsive design and clear calls to action. High-quality images are also important and a good history page can draw people to your club.
