When working with a web developer to design and build your website, you’ll learn that many different pages make up your site. Not all pages are created equal, however, and some are more critical than others in terms of their importance to the user experience.
While the most important pages on a website will vary from business to business, there are some pages that are universally important. Here are seven pages we feel deserve the most attention.
Without a doubt, the homepage is the most important page on a website, as it’s the first impression that a visitor will have of your business. Your homepage should be visually appealing and informative, providing users with a clear understanding of what your business does and what they can expect from your products and services.
The homepage should also have a clear and concise navigation menu, making it easy for users to find the information they are looking for. Keep your homepage simple and free of clutter. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to dig deeper into your business later on. For now, you want to capture attention but not overload visitors on too much information.
2. About Us
The About Us page is also crucial, as it provides visitors with information about your company, its history and its mission. Consumers like to know that they are giving business to a trustworthy and reputable company. This page is an opportunity to build trust and establish credibility.
Be sure to include photos of your business and your staff, along with your company values and any awards or accolades you have received over the years.
3. Products or Services
The Products or Services page is where visitors can learn about what your company offers. This page should be easy to navigate and provide clear descriptions of your products or services. It should also include high-quality images or videos that showcase your offerings in the best possible light.
Keep in mind that even though people are used to shopping online, they still want detailed information. For instance, if you’re selling clothes, offering a 360-degree view and suggested accessories will make it easier for consumers to shop. Also include the features and benefits of each product, along with the dimensions and specifications.
4. Contact Us
The Contact Us page is essential for any website, as it provides visitors with a way to get in touch with your company. This page should include a contact form, phone number, email address and physical address, if you have one. It’s also a good idea to include a map or directions to your location. Bottom line: Make it easy for people to get in touch with you!
A blog is something we recommend for most websites, as it’s an easy and effective way to provide visitors with valuable information. It can also help establish your company as an authority in your industry. Plus, adding regular content to your site is great for SEO.
Make sure your blog is easy to navigate and includes categories or tags to help visitors find the content they are looking for. Try to offer new and unique information so that people have a reason to read your blog posts instead of a competitor’s.
Testimonials are a powerful tool for building trust with potential customers. Your Testimonials page should include quotes or reviews from happy customers, along with their names and photos if possible. Adding this information makes your testimonials seem more authentic, which is important for consumer trust.
