If you have a basic website for your business, you may think that this is good enough. But are you really on top of the latest technological advances, and do you have the best and most up-to-date website that you could have? If you’re going to compete with other businesses in your field, you need to know your website-related-stuff, and it’s not as hard as you think. So we’ve broken it down into three simple tips, to help you get the best business website possible, and get your profits up. Everyone's a winner.
Add your social media links
If you have social media accounts for your business, adding them to your website is a quick and easy way of getting your customers to follow you. You can do this easily on sites such as WordPress, and it will make those visiting your site think that you’re super tech-savvy. If you haven’t got any social media accounts for your company, then spending some time making them is a good idea. People use a variety of platforms, and the more places they see your business, the more likely they are to remember it. So get Facebook-ing and Instagram-ing, too.
Sort out an ecommerce platform
You may be advertising your products online, but if your customers can actually purchase them through your website, then they’ll be more likely to buy them. In the modern world, it is simply easier to order things online, and your customers may not have time to visit your actual store. There are a lot of ecommerce platforms out there for all kinds of businesses - whether you’re a big or small company - and you can customise it to any design you’d like to use. If you haven’t already sorted this, check out an ecommerce platform guide.
Create a contact form
So you may have sorted out your online presence, but another step you can take is creating a simple contact form for your website. If you only leave your contact details in a small box at the bottom of your site, don’t expect all of your potential customers to have the patience to try and find them. Creating an easy-to-find form that comes straight to the company inbox is a much better idea, and you’ll get a lot more interaction from your customers. There are many ways that you can do this, and you’ll find guidance for each type of website online, so don’t be intimidated!
So there we have it, three ways to advance your business website that won’t take you a long time to sort out, but will have you reaping the benefits in no time. So add your social media links (and create the accounts if you’re not already at that point), and create an ecommerce platform so that your customers can purchase your product online. Lastly, create a contact form so that you can get all enquiries directly to your inbox, without causing any confusion for your customers. Good luck in creating the best business website!
