The Importance of Defining Your Uniqueness
When a customer wants to learn more about a product, service, or company, the first thing they will do is visit the website. It takes only a few seconds (minutes if you have a really compelling website) for that visitor to get a first impression and potentially make a purchase decision.
It is therefore vital to make the best impression possible upon new and returning visitors to your business website. One of the most effective ways to do so is by communicating the uniqueness of your company. Below, we’ll explain the benefits of a unique website and also some of the methods that you can use to define the uniqueness of your company online.
Use Keywords and Copywriting that Address the Customer’s Needs
Before reaching your website, a customer is searching for a solution online. Perhaps they need a new landscaper or maybe they want to talk to a financial planner about retirement. Think about what your customer is looking for and come up with search keywords that target those needs or pain points. Write web copy that identifies their problems up front and positions your services as the right solution.
Gain an Advantage Over Your Competition
If someone is comparing your business website with your competitor’s, what can you do to stand out? On your about page, or even your home page, tout the unique benefits that your company offers. Example benefits might include extended warranties or guarantees, a family-owned business, same-day service, free-shipping, online discounts, and bulk discounts. Another great feature to offer is live-chat, so that you can immediately answer any questions or doubts that customer’s might have.
Promote Brand Recognition and Customer Loyalty
Use website design to help brand your business with personality and a memorable look and feel. When customers visit your website, you want them to immediately recognize your unique brand and what it stands for. A website designer can extract the colors and logos from a company’s existing marketing materials and use them as a basis for a custom website design. Be sure that your site design offers easy navigation and readability, because the user experience online also influences whether people view your brand positively or negatively.
These are just a few of the ways a business can define its uniqueness through its website.
