Building a website for your business is easier than you think. With a tool like GoDaddy’s Website Builder or – if you are a bit more technical – WordPress, you’ll soon be up and running.
But how do you design a great site? The key to a great design is to start with the five key pages every small business web site should have:
- About Us
- Contact Us
Your home page is usually the first thing visitors see so be sure to cover all the important stuff here. Start with a call-to-action – This is your top priority. Before launching the website, you must decide exactly what it is you want your visitors to do – and make it easy for them to do it. You may want them to:
– Call you
– Make a purchase
– Sign up for a newsletter
– Participate in a survey.
– Your home page may also include:
– A tag line and short description of your business and why it’s awesome.
– Primary contact information
– Showcase product or service
– Signup form
– Top customer quote/review
This is where you show visitors what you’re selling or offering. For products: Be sure to include pictures, descriptions and prices of everything. Depending on how many items you have an offer, consider dividing them into categories. For services: Include information on areas of service, types of services – anything that describes your services and makes them compelling to potential customers.
About Us page
Use this page to describe your business. What do you do? What’s your history? What separates you from the competition? Be sure to keep it brief and to-the-point – many web users have attention span! Consider throwing in pictures of yourself, your staff, your storefront.
When customers see that other customers had a pleasant experience they are much more likely to do business with you. That’s why it’s important that you include a testimonials page on your website so you can showcase all your reviews. It’s also a great idea to show customer pictures with your products/services.
Contact Us page
This one is pretty simple. List all relevant contact information for your business so customers and other interested parties can easily reach you. This can include:
– Phone numbers
– Email addresses
– Physical address – don’t forget to include maps and driving directions.
And that’s that. The five key pages for your website. Don’t hesitate to expand your website as your business grows and you feel more confident about building the site.
