Is your website turning clients away?
It’s best to think of construction website visitors as toddlers.
They have no attention span and you have to convince them that there is something in it for them to stay on your site. You only have a few seconds to convince new visitors to stay on your site, and if your site doesn’t deliver on the promise it made to get them there, your new visitor needs only to click a mouse to head back to Google or move on to your competition.
With so many contractors out there doing what you do, why would your prospect put up with a less than stellar contractor website?
That’s why you need to design your website with the assumption that every visitor is 2-year old toddler. That’s the key to a persuasive website.
Let’s break down our user’s pathologies and what they mean for us:
- The visitor is a sociopath. They could care less about you unless what you do means something to them. That means your content needs to speak to them. Most contractor websites talk endlessly about themselves. “We’re the number 1 blah blah blah,” Who cares? Talk to your user, hold up the mirror, describe them to themselves. They are their favorite topic. That’s true of everyone. So always try to talk to your visitor about themselves.
- The visitor is lazy. If you put any more layers or requirements on your new visitor, they will just give up and leave your site. Have to click four times to learn about your services? They’re leaving. No clear next step to learn more? They’re going to quit. Remove every friction point because people are just that lazy.
- The visitor can’t do things for themselves. Let’s assume they are both reading and decision-making impaired. Take away everything that is garbage on your site, make everything clear and obvious, and cut any unnecessary decisions by making those decisions for them in advance by adding defaults or removing things entirely. Though despite not being able to do things for themselves, they are deeply distrustful of you. For now.
Instead, let’s make your construction website your most effective salesperson!
Is your prospect actually crazy or lazy? No, of course not —but thinking this way, by adopting these extremes as a mindset, and design around them, then your website will do the job you hired it to do and do its absolute best to convert visitors into prospects and leads.
To do that, you need to meet the needs of your visitors. People, when visiting your website, are goal-driven. They have a pain or need they need to be solved, and no patience for nonsense.
If your website takes care of your visitors by being easy-to-use and logically designed, it will become the most effective salesperson you have.

Here’s the problem with construction web design: it’s focused too much on design, and not enough on results.

Order your Website Analysis today
When you order a Website Analysis, this is what you’ll get:
- Video Analysis — You’ll get a recorded video with Darren (that’s me) recording my experience of going to your website for the first time, just like your prospects, except I will be pointing out friction points or issues that prevent you from accomplishing your goals on your website
- Your Questions, Answered — You’ll get answers to your most pressing questions about your website, increasing conversions, getting more leads and selling more of your services
- Fast Action Plan — After the analysis is complete, you’ll receive a fast action plan for your site: a detailed summary of changes you should make to improve your website’s ability to convert. These are the most important changes that I recommend. The summary is a great companion piece to the video, allowing you to have a punch list of the most important changes to make (that way, you don’t have to go back and watch the video over and over to get the most important bits).
Here’s what your Website Analysis Video Recording will include:
- A detailed review of your current website
- My thoughts and feedback in real-time as they happen on each page of your site
- The “glaringly obvious” issues that you probably don’t see
- A video recording of all the above
- A ‘Fast Action Plan’ summarizing the most important changes to make right away
What my clients say:
I followed you guys at least 4 years before engaging Darren Slaughter. I should have done it sooner but I had people in my office telling me “you don’t need that help.” I finally blew them off and I was right. You guys are way better than having in-house staff doing the work. Also very impressive is that you think about the cost to us in the process! I almost hate to refer you guys and let my secret out.
Doug Bush, CMS Bush
Darren & his team are the real deal…period. In fact, once a couple of our bigger projects get rolling here soon I will gladly be writing another check with Darren Slaughter’s name on it.
Bob Benhardt, Benhardt Construction & Remodeling
Darren: I wanted to ‘publicly’ thank you for rebuilding my website and turning it into a ‘lead machine’! We had a decent looking website in the past but had two major problems with it. 1) We did not come up in organic searches 2) We did not have a well formatted ‘call to action’ to convert viewers to leads. We are now ranked on page one on most searches and 2/3′s of our google analytic hits are from organic searches. You website design work has given us the tools and confidence to succeed in today’s ‘tougher than ever’ business climate.
