This is done by positioning the company as a dependable, trust worthy and experienced service provider in your specific target market. Scroll below to view more information on the best pratices to get the most out of your business website.
When you sell a service, you're typically selling a relationship with yourself or team. This requires spending more time and effort in establishing your credibility and developing a rapport with your customers. Provide the benefits of your services you're offering but also establish the value of you or your team providing it as well. This is a critical factor towards closing the sale.
There are a few different ways you can accomplish this. First, you should include a good, professional picture of yourself, team or your storefront. Next, you need to include a list of your credentials. Make sure to state exactly how each of your credentials is going to translate into a benefit for your potential clients.
You'll also need to provide evidence that other clients have been satisfied with your services. Depending on the nature of the service you provide, you may choose to do this in a few different ways. Testimonials from clients are a great start to establish your credibility. Another can be a gallery or portfolio. However, if the confidentiality of your clients is important, you may need to approach this a bit differently.
The first priority of your service page is for visitors get a clear idea of what you offer, with minimal effort. You have to get them to want to learn more first before they go through lines of texts. So keep the first descriptions brief and concise, yet at the same time provide enough information to convey their value. If visitors have to take the time to figure out what kinds of services you provide, they aren’t likely to take more steps after that.
This can be achieved by having a sales copy with a detailed breakdown of the services you provide. Include the benefits with this as it will be one of the most critical aspects of your site.
