Website Content

There’s a sweet spot when it comes to website content. Too much is overwhelming and too little is disappointing, both of which make your customers and future customers look elsewhere.

Strong website content is specific, clear, concise, and focused. If someone clicks on a service tab for instance and ends up at a page describing your staff, your services, and your top products, you’ll likely lose ’em and quick.

It’s best if that service tab focuses on your services. Novel idea, right? Provide the name of each service and a brief description. Don’t get too wordy. Don’t be too salesy. And with any content you put up on your website, remember your brand, your brand voice, and your audience. Cater to their curiosities and their needs in those summaries and descriptions. And please, oh please, keep the content relevant and up-to-date. There’s nothing worse than visiting a website that has a whole page or two dedicated to a product or service that is no longer available or doesn’t represent what is actually available in the here and now.

Top Tip: You could write your website content yourself, heaven knows you know your products and services better than anyone else. But, odds are you’ve got your hand and head in 100 different places. Why add to your to-do list when there’s someone out there who can take an idea, research it, summarize it, and write it for you?

Let me know when you’re ready to pass the baton.

Quotes that Inspire Me

Blogging For Businesses

What is business blogging? It’s a marketing tactic! Blogging gets your business more online visibility and is the perfect place to give your customers insight into your work and brand.

A business blog is a marketing channel (just like social media, direct mail, or email marketing) that helps your business grow.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Why would I need a business blog?
  • What content do I need on my blog?
  • Why does the content I post matter?
  • What does brand voice have to do with it?
  • Where’s the value in a business blog?

The answers to all of these questions: 

  1. A business blog helps drive traffic to your website.
  2. A business blog helps convert that traffic into leads.
  3. A business blog helps establish authority and credibility.
