1. A website search tool - if they want it NOW they will search, not browse.

2. A website map - again if they get lost this isrepparttar first place they will go.

3. Easy to read content - Don't use color combinations that are rough onrepparttar 141907 eyes. If your information is long provide a easy access printer friendly version.

4. Fast loading pages - NO customer will wait around for 5 minutes to see your website. Remember over 50% ofrepparttar 141908 world is still on a 56k modem, in 2004!

5. A Privacy Statement - Any website that collects information (even email addresses) needs this.

6. Easy Navigation - surfers don't haverepparttar 141909 time to try to figure out your neat navigation system. Keep it simple!

7. Accessibility Statement - Let those who are disabled know that you care about them as customers too.

8. Easy to Access contact information - If they have a problem withrepparttar 141910 site or an order make it easy for them to be able to contact you.

9. Flow of design throughoutrepparttar 141911 site - Don't changerepparttar 141912 page design from page to page. One intro page design and then a consistent inner page design is fine but once in your site make sure everything stays inrepparttar 141913 same place.

10. NO, I REPEAT, NO pop ups! - These have become synonymous with ads, spy ware, viruses and porn sites. Do anything you can to avoid them.
