Your Website As An Online Sales Network
Your website is essentially your online shop window for your business. Oftentimes, websites are seen as the transitional point, whereby interested visitors might then get in touch with you about a service. But what if the site itself can actually carry out the task of selling your business while you and your team go about your work? It comes down to how the site is designed in order to boost the likelihood of online sales enquiries, and we have highlighted a few points to think about here.
- Make The Site Stand Out
Your website has to not only be striking and recognisable, but it also has to be appealing on the eye, with colourful imagery, legible text and so on. More notably, it has to look different from your competitors. It has to present users with a presentation that they would not find anywhere else; it has to cause visitors to stop in their tracks, at which point they will take a glance at who you are and what you do. That can only happen if the site is designed to be as aesthetically-pleasing and head-turning as possible. It also helps to think about what your target market would expect from a website, so that you can match their expectations as well as providing them with a user experience that they didn’t previously realise they would enjoy.
- Answer Probable Questions
A business-focused website ultimately exists to answer customer enquiries relating to a particular service. It isn’t enough to simply say “we do this”; tell people how you do them, and how you solve common problems that they may have. Not only does this influence visitors to become more interested in what you can do for them, but it also increases the likelihood of your suggestions for action being used within search engine pages as other users are posing the same questions. This means that you will begin to appear in front of a new audience, as well as building up your prestige amongst your typical clientele. If your website can answer their problems, then there is a higher chance of a sale occurring, as the odds of user conversion into customers would increase.
- Provide Strong Examples Of Work
So, your site looks great and you are fielding the main sector-related queries, but what else could engineer a sale? Well, if your website clearly provides a significant number of examples of past projects that you have been involved in, backed up by strong, positive customer testimonials, then the user will feel that they can place their trust in you. The absence of a portfolio will have potential customers wondering if you are the real deal or not; showcasing your work (preferably with recent and large-scale projects if applicable) will establish your business as being credible and reliable, should they wish to enter into an agreement with you.
Before we sign off, we should reiterate the importance of the site having an online form for visitors to complete, meaning that the site can complete a sale from start to finish without the need for additional employee intervention.
