June is Entrepreneurs “Do It Yourself” Marketing Month! Did you know that?
It is one of my favorite months for business owners and professionals. It's a great month to highlight all the things entrepreneurs can do themselves to market their business. In honor of Entrepreneurs “Do It Yourself” Marketing Month, KR Design will be focusing on various tips that you can easily do yourself to market your business.
Today's tip focuses on your website. Most business owners and professionals under-utilize this tool. Your website is more than just your online storefront. Your website can be your portfolio and speak volumes about your products and services. Your website could be verification that your customer hired the right person to do the job because they read one of your powerful testimonials. Websites can be a powerful tool if used correctly.
How can I use my website more effectively?
When prospects ask a question that you repeatedly answer…
Isn't that the perfect time to send them your website? Especially if the questions requires an in-depth answer. Isn't that why you have a FAQ page on your site? Refer people to it!
“I'd like to see more…”
You could arrange to have a meeting but before you whip out your smartphone or planner, send them to your website. Most of us have pictures of products or happy, satisfied customers who have used our services.
“Which service is best for me?”
Most of us have multiple products and services. Rather than trying to explain every service and product, send them to your website. In some cases, the customer doesn't know exactly what they want or need but your website can help ease some of that pain of finding out.
On KR Design's website, we have a Trusted Links page. It makes it easy to refer prospective and current clients to other products and services that they might need with businesses that we trust. I do carry business cards of those businesses with me but it's a great help to me when I run out of those cards and say, “Go to the Trusted Links page on my website!”
