A person with Website Avoidance Disorder or WAD may be afraid to type in their web address online for fear of seeing an out-of-date website with errors, or rendering on devices incorrectly, or still having flash content. They may also spend a great deal of time anxiously looking at their competitor websites generating a  feeling of inadequacy which causes them to freeze and not address their website issues.

  • Avoiding their website because of fears of criticism, disapproval, or rejection.
  • An unwillingness to get involved with their website unless they are certain of success.
  • Reluctance to take risks or to engage in marketing activities because they may prove unproductive.
  • Fear of being criticized or rejected on social media.
