And, are they clickable to webpage that will advance the sale? Are your fonts visually consistent throughout the site? Do you have a consistent tone of voice throughout your website?

Do you have a website structure where any piece of content is accessible within three clicks or less? DigiSac Website Development (916) 3044-WEB (932) www.DigiSac.com 2
  3. 3. VIE E PR W PRODUCE MAGNETIC CONTENT Does your homepage have a clear headline that explains to your target audience what your business does and the primary benefit you deliver? (Otherwise known as your “Unique Selling Proposition.”)  Are you using captivating headlines throughout your website that speaks to a prospect’s pains? (Stop O DE MO talking about me-me-me and actually solve your client’s problems.) Is your website’s copy (long-form text) well written and compelling to your target audience? Have you made your content easy to digest by formatting your text into headlines, sub-headings, short paragraphs, bullets points, lists, quotations, italics and bold formatting? (People don’t actually read but rather skim through written content, and they need your help to highlight the most important areas.) Does your website have a search function so visitors can find specific content that's most important to them? Do you have social media sharing buttons on all your content, articles and products to increase your wordof-mouth? Can a typical prospect get the answers to their common questions before buying from you, by solely using your website? (Many visitors will rather not contact you at all if they believe they'll be pressured by Y NL a salesperson to buy. This is especially true in B2B when professional buyers are involved.) Have you posted content that details the cost of your service, the other best service providers, and the top problems associated with your service? (This is the fastest way to attract website traffic.) Are you using text, video, graphics, diagrams, etc. to thoroughly answer the common questions of a prospect? DigiSac Website Development (916) 3044-WEB (932) www.DigiSac.com 3
  4. 4. DEMONSTRATE TRUST & CREDIBILITY Do you have a company video on your homepage? (FYI: Video is 50 times more likely to improve your website’s ranking and very effective at quickly building trust & credibility.) Are you featuring your industry awards, member associations logos, BBB seal on your homepage to help build trust? Do you have a dedicated page to document your case studies and success stories that prove the quality & impact of your work? Do you have featured testimonials (video is better) on your homepage to quickly build social proof? Do you have a stand-alone page listing all your testimonials? (Tip: You can never have too many testimonials.) Do you have a brief “About Us" page that details the history of impact your business has had on the lives of others? (Skip the typical me-me-me rant, and focus on what the client really wants to know.) Do you have a company “Branding Guidelines” style guide available on your website for staff and media?

(This is a good opportunity to ask them to join your Facebook/ Linkedin/Twitter profile and increase word-of-mouth buzz.) Does your homepage display a “HUGE” phone number that they can call you without having to scroll down the page or click anywhere else? (For best results, place the number on the top right corner of your site.) Do you have your business contact & address details on the footer of every page? (Google likes to see your business name & address on every page.) Do you have an easy-to-fill callback form on your homepage? (This way you can at least collect their name and phone number.) Do you have a checkbox on the bottom of your contact page that allows them to sign up for your newsletter? (Considered the easiest way to increase you readership.)
