To complete our three part series on making the most of your online posts, todays post is going to take you through the ins and outs of the hub of your business information - your website.
In the last post in this series, I talked about social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
While social media is a great way to market your business and your brand, you have limited control of how your your information is displayed to the viewer.
This is where your website shines! Your information can be displayed how you want your viewers to see it. Want to tell more about a specific item? Have a whole page dedicated to just that, in a layout that you choose, that will never be scrolled out of existence.
Your website should be the hub of your business information. It should be the main place people go to enlist your services, purchase your goods, read your material and find about about who you are and what you do. The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to what you can put on your website. Some ideas of things to include are:
Give your business a more personable impression by adding a photo of each of your team members, their name, their role and even a little bit about what they do. This can help your clients to put a face to the people they are about to contact.
Using a contact form instead of a simple email link allows you to collect the information relevant to you. You can ask your clients specific questions so that when their email is received, you have all the information from the start, rather than having to send follow up emails to gather everything you need. This saves time for you, and the client.
Having your Instagram feed right on your homepage is a fantastic way to not only gain more social views, but also have everything together in one place. Users can like your posts and follow you - right from your own website! Having your social feeds on your website also allows you to easily keep your site up to date. Every time you post to one of your social accounts, your website is automatically updated too! This works extremely well with Twitter to get quick announcements posted on your site.
