 Websites are the backbone of most marketing programs, often providing potential customers with the information they need to lead them to a sale.

But is your business’ website equipped with the right information to pull people in and keep them there?

Consider these five ways to turn your website into an effective marketing tool:

1. Appearance

It is essential that your website attracts people, not scares them away. Your website’s appearance says something about your business’ skills and style and whether your business is progressive or stuck in the past. You will get more sales if your site is with the times rather than if it has been left behind.

2. Functionality and communication

Ensure your website functions well (buttons actually click and pages lead you where they should). Functionality is required for a good user experience, increasing interaction and sales. Effective communication is also essential to providing the right context for the information you are delivering to your audience. Clear messaging ensures your audience understands what you offer and why they should pay attention, which generates more sales.

3. Optimized landing pages

Have landing pages that engage your audience and organize your messaging to highlight your offerings effectively. This will allow a seamless sales experience for new customers.

4. Offerings

Answer the right questions by conveying the benefits of your offerings to attract ideal prospects. Benefits appeal to consumers and will make the decision-making process for new customers easy.

5. Reputation and credibility

Having a credible website assures your audience of your website’s safety, as well as your reputation as a legitimate business.

Transform Your Online Image

By focusing on these five areas, you can transform your website into the effective marketing tool you need to convey your offerings concisely and get the sales your business wants.

 

While having a robust website is crucial to success in today's economy, it's also important to drive traffic to your company website and capture customers. Learn about how social media can help you accomplish this goal as part of an integrated marketing program.
