Layout helps usability
How is your page layout?
Can a column layout transfer more control over what you want to pass? Can you keep your users focused and guide them up and down?
The simple and clear layout leads your readers to a prominent call to action at the end of the reading. Do you understand how it is?
Encourage the user to read through the benefit, instead of the immediate sale
Okay, selling a product or a service may be the ultimate goal, however, delivering just that is doing the same things that common sites already do.
Now, being able to deliver a benefit to your customer is a very well-crafted and heavily thought-out strategy on the mental trigger of reciprocity, which generates immediate interest and empathy.
It may sound cliché, but it is real and positive for your website, offering something, a gesture, no matter how simple it is in gratitude for customer loyalty, will bring you back at some point.
Readability is important
Is the text on your website capable of telling a story, of delivering a message to the user? It can be part of the design and deserves your full attention.
See if some points on your site are ok:
Sentences and paragraphs must be between 3 and 5 lines, long sentences are not usually read to the end.
The font size is important, it needs to be comfortable, not too big, and not too small.
Use a bulleted list, this helps users get a clear idea of what to say.
A responsive website
There are several reasons to consider for your site to be responsive, however, there is one that you should carefully consider...
Bad user experience. If he doesn't find what he's looking for, this gives a 61% chance that your customer will immediately go to the competitor's website, according to Google Thinks Insights.

This technique is not new, but it was often not performative with the techniques used. The emergence of the Intersection Observer API has improved the performance to use this Lazy Loading technique on images.
