Your story and your content play a major role in increasing your brand credibility. Credibility is important in building a successful business. Your website should be able to inform users directly about the product, the services you provide ,or about what your business is. Your About Us page is another important addition that can add value to your brand. For example, the story of Sweans is showcased in a creative way. Displaying awards from reputable third-party sources will boost confidence. Client reviews on your website immediately tell your visitors that your brand is transparent and ready to own its image.
Don’t forget CTA’s (Call-To-Action)
Give your visitors several ways to get in touch with you. CTAs and sales funnels go hand in hand. Your CTA’s will motivate your audience to take steps towards becoming your customer. Instruct your user to take immediate action with your CTA. Don’t make your audience guess or wonder how to proceed rather give them a solution in an eye-catching, colored button and take them to the next phase. Grab their attention and let them seal the deal.
Content – the king
Visuals draw the initial attention of your website visitors but it’s the quality of your well-written content that keeps them hanging on. Quality & consistency are the keys to any content strategy. Your website content should reflect your brand’s identity. Carefully consider the persona of your audience and convince them to take action. Reach your audience across a broad range of platforms with videos and infographics to reinforce the points you have already made in your articles. Your website should have helpful content talking about the solutions provided by your company to your customers.
A famous quote by author Alina Wheeler goes like this: “Brand is the promise, the big ideas, and the expectations that reside in each customer’s mind about a product, service or company. Branding is about making an emotional connection.” Branding helps in building connections with customers. Your brand will be what they remember.
