ADA Web Accessibility Widget
As of 2010, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires certain businesses to make accommodations for people with disabilities. To have an ADA-compliant website, it needs to be perceivable, operable, understandable and robust. Not only is this somewhat vague, but it can also be tricky for some businesses that don’t have an IT team to help them put together the necessary pieces to meet compliance requirements. Maintaining an ADA-compliant website not only helps protect your business against lawsuits and fines it also provides needed accommodations for your potential customers.
To help ensure that you meet all of the compliance requirements, we recommend going through a third-party. Simply Clear Marketing has an experienced team that understands exactly what needs to be included to meet the ADA requirements; you can visit our website to see just how an ADA Widget would work on your website!

10- 20 seconds. That’s all the time you have to capture someone’s attention on your website. With attention spans getting shorter and content consumption rates increasing, it is difficult to get people to engage with your content for longer than a few seconds. So how do you get someone’s attention for longer than 30 seconds? You need to start by offering value to the consumer and making your messaging clear, so they know exactly what that offer is.
Ways to make your website more engaging:
- Simple design
- Strong visuals
- Dynamic content
Try looking at your website through the eyes of someone that doesn’t know who you are. Is it clear to you what your company offers? If not, maybe it’s time to hone in on what exactly you want to showcase.
