Current Website Client Add-Ons
ABOUT US PAGE - The about page describes your company (i.e. partners, employees, history, mission statement). This page is important because it establishes you as a trusted and legitimate company. NEWS / PRESS RELEASES - Having a news section is a great way to add fresh content (a primary reason for visitors to return). If you are good at what you do, journalists will write articles about you in the news, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and in a variety of online and print media. It is a lot easier for them to write articles if you have a press section on your website. PAYMENTS & SHIPPING - Information laying out your businesses practices is the best way to keep customers happy, so explain your companies payment and shipping policies up fount. CLIENT / CUSTOMER SUPPORT - Responsible businesses have customer support centers to assist people who purchase their goods and services. Taking the initiative to even attempt this, at least shows that you care about them enough to want them to come back; they will respect you for that. This page also saves you time and money by automating recurring procedures. CONTACT PAGE - Your website also comes with an automatic contact page that displays your address, phone, fax and e-mail as well as a contact form where visitors can send questions or comments. Your contact page is your sale closer. The main goal of most websites is to eventually lead visitors to the contact page so you can close sales with leads that are generated by the contact page. PRICE LIST - If you have a standard price list or chart, publish it on its own page so prospective clients/customers can compare your prices with your competition. Internet consumers like to shop around and if you don't list your prices, they will assume that they are expensive. (IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO HAVE STORE PAGES) CUSTOM PAGES - Custom content, sometimes you just need to make your own page ideas. text, images, slideshows, multimedia, upcoming events or extra links. PRIVACY POLICY - Due to an avalanche of nasty spam emails and 'do not call' lists, Privacy Policies are taken very seriously by web consumers. If you have forms on your website (i.e. contact, subscriptions, user logins, comments, etc.), it is important to write a Privacy Policy assuring visitors that their personal information is not at risk. NOT having a Privacy Policy could mean the difference between closing a sale and having your prospect walk away to never return. DISTRIBUTABLE DOWNLOADS - You can offer distibutables to be downloaded from your website. The best example of this would be having clients download printable forms so they can fill them out at home instead of wasting your staff's time with repetitive tasks.

PROFILES - Profiles can be used to show the website owner, employees, team members, etc. The list page has images, summary information with bio, contact info and related information for each profile and more.

Clients who have read your FAQ are more informed and easier to deal with. SERVICE PAGES - You should also accurately and completely describe any services that you promote or offer. Make a list of all of your services and proceed to write paragraphs about each of them. HUMAN RESOURCES / JOB POSTINGS - It's a good idea to be collecting résumés incase your marketing venture takes off and you need to hire more people to help you get your work done. Post jobs for which you are hiring and post the requirements so your applicants can prepare a better presentation for you. TESTIMONIAL / REFERENCES PAGE - Testimonials can be displayed with a title, comment, name, position, community and image. You can also display a testimonial module in your sidebar to keep quotes from your fans in front of visitors while they view other content. Ask your best clients to write testimonials to help assure new clients of the quality and reputation of your work. LINKS / RESOURCES - Adding a resource page to your website makes you an authority in your field. If you maintain enough links to related websites, others will link to your page as a resource for their websites, blogs, and social networks. Link to informative websites, references, and other resources that are of value and relevant to your site's content. USER’S AGREEMENT - There are many reasons why companies publish user's agreements on their websites. It is an easy way to discuss your rules and policy, while deferring liability from yourself to your website's users.
