IN GENERAL...

Customers visit business websites seeking businesses they can trust to deliver a solution to their problem. Meet this, & maximize your chances of them contacting you. Thus, your website should have the following information below that shows you can be trusted to deliver your solution, product or service, to them, which will convince them to contact you:

Welcome to ABC Business Section: We Solve Your ______ Problem

In this section, have a headline that grabs your visitor’s attention.  This section then elaborates what problem(s) your business solves for them and the benefits they get from doing business with you (“what’s in it for them” ).

The information here should be easy to understand.  You want your potential customers to know how you can help them within 3 seconds of arriving at your website; otherwise, they may leave your website.

You should also have at least 3 photos of your business, either as part of a slide show, or on your website.  Photos help sell your business.  The minimum three photos are:

  1. Photo of your storefront so that they recognize your business when they come by to visit your business.
  2. Photo of the the business owner and/or team.  People like to see the people behind the business that they’re looking to do business with.
  3. Photo(s) of your product(s) or service(s) that you provide.

And decide on what colours you would like for your website. These colours would usually be the same colours that make up your business logo.
