Why you should display your contact details on a website?

Build Trust

As false websites (hoax, phishing, etc…) are growing on the web, web users are becoming more and more suspicious when browsing the web.

There are a few things that internet users are now looking at to make sure that the website they are using is genuine. One of these things is the contact details.
Why a website would not want to display its contact details? Are they trying to hide something? Having contact details on your website is a must.

There is low chance that someone will go ahead with a company if one doesn’t feel he/she can trust them.  Similarly, if someone doesn’t trust a company, he will hesitate to purchase its products. Therefore, having your phone number on display could greatly increase your conversion rate.
