The rules of the modern business world have changed such that, if you do not have a website, then you do not have a business. Your website is a sales tool that is used to presell to your potential customer. However, it is important to note that a well-designed website with no meaningful content is as good as having no website at all. Whatever it takes, ensure you have web content that sells.
So, how do you come up with this content?
The first step to coming up with web content that sells is to establish the expectations of the person who will be visiting your site.
By familiarizing yourself with the market, you will be able to tell what can keep or cannot keep people on your website. After you establish this, then you need to come up with sales oriented content for your website.
Here is how you do it.
- Articles about your products and services
By articles, I do not mean those junk pieces full of unnecessary information. Instead, get articles that relate to your products. For instance, you can come up with an article about the uses, content, ingredients, prices, and origin of your products.
Give people the benefits of using your products and lure them into purchasing those products. This is important since today’s savvy shoppers have no time and are not interested in going through the entire website looking for a single piece of information.
- Short, precise, and related information
New trends in your field will interest your visitors. For instance, if you are in the fashion industry, updating regular fashions and new designs of clothes and makeup will earn you more sales.
Come up with short anecdotes that are within the topic and are informative to your customers.
- Resources and tricks of the trade
Create a means of updating and giving your customers tips and secrets about your products. Human beings love competition, and they will readily embrace anything that they feel puts them a step ahead of others.
For instance, if you have a spices and cooking website, make a “tip of the day” feature giving your customers different ways in which they can use your products.
All these tips are essential in making your customer be in a “buying mood.” By giving them an extra something, they will feel special and well catered for.
This means you get the sales that you were looking for and your customer remains happy and satisfied.
