The Benefits Of Making Your Website Inclusive

By making your website accessible with one or several of accessiBe’s solutions, you will be able to reach and access a larger consumer market while boosting your potential conversions and improving engagement rates. 

Here are some business benefits of having an inclusive website:

  • Improve organic reach: Not only will businesses widen their customer base to include the 16% of the population that has a disability, but their website will rank higher on search engines and experience increased visibility because of enhanced SEO. This can drive more traffic to the website. 
  • Improve the user experience: A clean user experience, as a result of web accessibility, will offer users consistent page headers and structure, making navigation easier. The easier it is to navigate a website, it’s more likely that conversion rates will lift and bounce rates will drop.
  • Help comply with accessibility laws: Owning and operating an accessible website means that your business will mitigate legal risk and potentially save valuable time and money that could be spent on lawsuits. To do this, businesses can rely on AI-powered tools such as accessiBe’s to conform with WCAG in compliance with the ADA. 
  • Help with taxes: For businesses who invest in web accessibility, a tax credit of up to $5,000 is available. The tax credit can be received annually for those who qualify and can be spent on further web accessibility practices.
