Reasons Why Your Website Needs to be ADA Compliant
1. Increases Your Target Audience
If your website is not already ADA compliant, you are automatically missing out on millions of potential customers who cannot access your site due to their disabilities.
2. Improves Your SEO Efforts
A key element of ADA compliance is accessibility to screen readers. Compliant sites appeal to users, search engines, and screen readers, ultimately improving your SEO endeavors.
3, May Help Your Reputation
Not only will ADA compliance increase your target audience by millions, but it will also let potential customers know just how important they are to your business.
4. Better Website Usability
Creating a more operable and navigable website will ultimately beneﬁt all users. Web pages will be easier to comprehend and will allow everyone (disabled and not) to ﬁnd what they are looking for quickly.
5. YOU CAN AVOID PENALTIES
As of 2018, websites MUST be ADA Compliant. Dozens of brands have been hit with signiﬁcant lawsuits in recent years for not having ADA Compliant websites (and that was before the DOJ set this requirement in stone), including Fordham University, Foot Locker, Brooks Brothers, and even Kylie Jenner. ADA Website Compliance will save you thousands of dollars in potential legal fees and ﬁnes!
