NO. 8 – DON’T HAVE AUTO PLAY MUSIC
In a similar way to Auto Play Videos, Music that plays automatically on your website is a terrible, terrible idea, and amounts to one of the most egregious cardinal sins in website design. It will irritate your visitors, and they will leave the site immediately, give them a bad experience and they will potentially NEVER return.
It’s okay to include music on your website, if that is, it serves some kind of purpose, and is relevant to your business objectives and digital marketing strategy. But it’s important to let visitors decide whether or not they want to hear it, as you have NO idea what their musical tastes are, you have NO idea where they and who they are with are when they open your web page and you have NO idea how loud they have their computer volume set.
So don’t force them to listen to it by playing it automatically. Simple as that!!!!
