Features Of A Professional Website by Brandler: 10:16pm On Aug 16, 2018
it is important for every business/organization to have a brand website. It is one of the little extra spices that you can add to your business in the twenty-first century, to help you achieve your desired goals and objectives. Having a website gives you extra leverage to reach more customers than your competitors. A professionally designed website should help you reach more people, make more sales, target a potential new market, right in the comfort of their bedrooms or offices. In addition, it is your online office that never shuts down. Your website operates twenty hours a day, seven days a week and three hundred and sixty-five days a year.



FEATURES OF A PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE

Header Information for websites

1. Domain Name: This is one of the most important parts of a business website, this is the web address of the website. It should either represent the name of your company or what your company stands for. It should be simple, easy to remember, avoid long domain names, and make it simple. For example www.brandlersolutions.com, , www. etc. A good domain name is a great feature of a professional website.

2. SSL Security: This is the padlock sign that you often see on the left-hand side of the address bar of browsers. This basically helps secure your site and ensure that user information is protected when they are surfing or browsing through your website. It basically helps create a secure connection on the site.
3. Logo: This is your brand identity; it is usually placed on the top of the header. Logos give your brand a great sense of brand identity and also help build trust and branding.
4. Phone Number: This is very crucial because most of the time when a user comes across your website, the first thing they want to do if they are interested in your products or services is to call. Make sure the phone is visible on the pages of your website.
5. Menu: This is the main navigation of your website, it makes navigating around the website fast and easy, It is like the website navigational map that leads you from one page of the website to the other pages of the site. That is, the Homepage, About Us, Contact Us, Services etc
6. Banner / Slider: Your website should contain a slider or banner displaying what your organization does; this will be the first thing that catches your visitor’s attention when they visit your website. It should be simple, self-explanatory, catchy and above all captivating.
7. Call to Action (CTA): This is one of the most important features of a professional website that is often neglected. This is the sales part of your website; after you have told your customers what your business does, don’t just assume the visitors understand what next to do. You need a call to action button which tells your customers the next line of action you want them to take. EG, Contact Us, Buy Now! Call Us, Get a free Quote etc
8. Heading/Tagline: You should include the name or important heading and tagline for your business with keywords relating to what you do, this is good for SEO and will ultimately help you in ranking higher in search engines. The tagline is a catchy phrase that helps convey what you do to your customers. For example, at Brandler Solutions our tagline is Digital creative and innovative solution provider.
9. Products / Services: You need to give a general overview or graphical representation of your services, or top selling products summarized on the front page. This is to help the visitors make a swift decision rather than having to navigate all the pages of your site.
10. Quality and Optimized Contents: When it comes to online business, you must understand that content is king. For your website to rank high on search engines you must have high-quality content.
11. Catchy Images: Like the popular saying, Pictures speaks a thousand words, another way to impress your visitors is to have catchy and beautiful images of the products or services rendered, displayed on your site. Beautiful and clear pictures have a great psychological effect on users, which ultimately make them patronize you. Having great images on your website is also a neccesary feature of a professional wensite.
12. Testimonials/Reviews: Depending on your business type, another way to convince your visitors is to add testimonials from past clients to your site. Customers want to be sure that you can offer what you claim to be offering, So testimonials or reviews from past clients will go a long way to attract other buyers.
13. Lists of Clientele: Show a list of your past and present clients. This gives your business some form of trust especially if you have worked with some top brands or have a lot of clients.
14. Portfolio: This is another great feature of a professional website; it’s a place that allows you to blow your own trumpet. This feature is like your showroom where you let your website do the talking for you. It lets you showcase your past works and project. Visitors can easily flip through these projects before making the final decision.
15. Contact Information: One of the greatest harm you can do to your business is to not have your contact information on your website; you should also give your customers different options to reach you. Your contact information should contain your physical address or website address, your phone number, your email address, social media contact and working hours.
16. Newsletter Signup: This is one way of building relationship with your clients and website visitors, a lot of customers come to your website every day, you should encourage them to subscribe to your website newsletter where you can send offers, updates, promotions, discounts or new products/services that you are offering. This way you can always keep in touch with them for life.
17. Footer Menu: This is an important feature of a professional site which helps for easy site navigation. To enable the customer to quickly go to any page instead of having to scroll to the top menu to navigate to other pages.
18. Social Media Links: Because we live in a social world, many of your customers want to follow you on social media to keep up with updates in your business, it is often advisable to include your social media links on your website.

ABOUT PAGE

19. About Your Organisation: This should contain important information about your brands and what you stand for.
20. Mission and Vision:/[b] This should feature the mission and vision of your organization.
[b]21. Achievements Infographics/ Awards:

23. Service offering: This explains in details what your organization offers in more detail.
24. Links to other pages on your site: This is good for easy navigation and SEO (search engine optimization)
25. Readable Link: The link to every page of your site should carry the keywords of that particular service you are offering. Make sure you have readable URL or links on your websites, this is great for SEO. Instead of using www.brandlersolutions.com/12434jsgyusik as a link, use something like www.brandlersolutions.com/services

CONTACT PAGE
