Here are the top 5 elements every website should have:

 

  1. A Professionally Designed Logo: Your logo is your brand’s identity and what will grab your customer’s attention. It’s essential to have a logo that is easy to read, memorable, and well designed. Keep in mind when choosing the theme and colors of your logo that your website should match.
  2. A Custom Domain Name: We recommend getting a domain name that matches your business’s brand for your website. A custom domain will help boost your SEO, make your website credible, and make it easy for customers to find your website online.
  3. Lead Generating Option: New customers need to stay in the loop regarding your small business, whether it’s for general updates or upcoming promotions. Adding a pop-up sign-up form to your website can help you build up your contacts organically and keep lifelong, happy customers.
  4. Quality Content: The content written for your website should have a purpose, be unique, and have a writing style that appeals to your target audience. A great place to start is researching your direct competitors and coming up with ways your business is different and why your customers should choose you!
  5. Contact Information: Being accessible to your customers and providing direct contact information like a phone number, email address, or a contact form on your website is a must. Providing outstanding customer service helps build trust and brand loyalty with your customers.
