Give Your Website Personality!

When you are building your website you should model it after your best salesperson.

You know the one I’m talking about. He/she is a great communicator and very engaging. They tailor their message to each audience, treat every customer as an individual and remember what their interests are. They follow up after every interaction with a customer. And the really good salespeople have integrity and are proud of what they are selling.

You should make your website just like that salesperson. Here’s how…

  • Elevator Pitch – every great salesperson has an elevator pitch…a short, concise pitch that explains what your product/service does and how it is different- all in the fewest words possible. Your website should be just as concise. If there’s any great failing in websites it is the tendency to be much too verbose – far beyond the tolerance of most prospects, especially those on mobile devices.
  • Tailor the Message – some companies’ products cater to the needs of diverse prospects in wildly different industries. The terminology and features and benefits may vary significantly when speaking to these different markets. Sometimes by grouping your products & services by industry you can speak to each industry in its own “language” and tailor your message to their unique needs…like a good salesperson would do!
  • Remember the Customer – if the customer has been to your site before then, through cookies or your Marketing Automation System, you should be able to “remember” what they were interested in last time and perhaps serve that up in the featured products section of your home page. This is great service because you are potentially saving your prospect time in trying to find that product again on your website. Better yet, if you have a log in area (customer portal or e-commerce) you can have the website greet them by name when they come back.
  • Provide Proof – it is easy to make claims about features and benefits of your products but providing proof that backs it up takes the discussion out of the realm of opinion and into fact. ROI studies, white papers, customer retention statistics, survey results, and testimonials all can help you back up your claims with integrity. These are the kinds of things your top salespeople will use to prove that your product/service is superior and your website should do the same thing.
  • Follow Up – when someone requests a quote, the website can auto-generate and email a thank you note letting them know when they can expect to hear from you.
  • Exceptional Service – your website can provide 24/7 access to documentation, brochures, specifications, manuals, etc. Plus you can have a customer login area where they can see information that is only intended for them (i.e. order status, invoices, etc.). Even your best salesperson isn’t available 24/7 but your customer portal will be.

When you are redesigning your site – and generally you should be doing it every 3 years or so – keep in mind that its primary objective is to sell. That’s why giving your website the voice and personality of your best salesperson will help you give your customers the best possible experience.

Did you know logos can help businesses in their endeavor to create a first and lasting positive impact on the viewers and the target audience. Like a handshake, a strong logo is a powerful tool that can telegraph the type of company that a customer can expect to interact with. Tired logos can convey a company with outdated views, while an overly simplistic logo can telegraph that the company has no passion. SFA can help create or sometimes simply modernize a logo that truly represents our clients' passion. Need help creating or designing your logo? Contact our experts.

Promotional marketing is a business marketing strategy designed to stimulate a customer to take action towards a buying decision. No one is going to buy a product or service they haven't heard of, nor will they buy it from you if they don't know what your company offers—this is why a great social media strategy is vital if you want to grow your business. According to Ambassador, 71% of consumers who have experienced positive social media services with a brand are likely to recommend it to others. At SFA, we take pride in providing excellent content marketing strategies to our clients.

In the digital age, print can still have impact. That’s why when SFA client APS Technology needed some “brand buzz” before participating in the nation’s largest drilling technology conference, SFA developed a series of ads placed in key trade publications that communicated APS’s commitment to its customers, strong standing in their industry and global presence that many of its competitors could not match. The ads allowed for greater audience reach resulting in many prospects seeking out APS for their depth of offerings and global presence.
