Credibility is essential for success within an online community. Your business’s website is a first impression for your business, especially when a prospect is looking for relevant information to influence their buying decision. When your website is the only connection your prospects have to you, they don’t yet know if you are trustworthy— and the onus is on you to prove your merit. When your website establishes your company as a credible resource, you can expect more qualified leads, as people tend to buy from the companies they trust and value. This post will discuss a few simple ways to improve your websites’ credibility.
Your Content Was Written By A Fourth Grader
Well, not really, but you get the point. Quality content is the foundation for building trust with readers, leading to increased engagement and higher conversion rates (not in all cases). Admittedly, if your content isn't performing well, you may find that a failure to adhere to the basic rules of quality writing may be the source of the problem. Not only is content quality important for educating prospective customers, but it's essential for satiating Google's fluid SEO requirements.
Your Older Content Has Become Stale
This is similar to the issue of poorly written content, yet it's often more easy to fix, especially if you focus your efforts on creating evergreen content. Consider this, have you ever put a lot of effort into a post that was engaging and on-point when you first published it, yet after a while, it generated fewer and fewer visits?
When content becomes outdated, it becomes more difficult to attract and engage readers, often reflecting poorly on your company's ability to relate to reader's current challenges.
You Don't Have Quality CTA's To Take Readers To The Next Step
This mistake can be quite disheartening, especially if you have taken ample time to create content. However, you can't assume readers will consume your content and magically transform into loyal and engaged customers. Rather, you should gently encourage them to take the next step in the purchase process, which often requires them to click a CTA (which brings them to a landing page where they can access valuable content offers in exchange for some of their basic contact information).
Readers generally anticipate a request for them to take action after reading compelling content (after all, that's the main idea behind marketing-- you want readers to do something based on the information they just received).
Make sure that you place an eye-catching call-to-action on your blog posts. Without it, you are leaving your readers at a dead end.
Be consistent. While you don't have to post every day, readers will appreciate consistency. By publishing on a consistent basis, readers will look forward to reading your content. At first, it may be difficult to be consistent with blogging; however, it helps if you plan a few posts ahead of time. Your blog's success depends on your goals and the effort you put into creating fresh, interesting, and consistent content. Don't fall into the habit of skipping posting. A short, thought-provoking post is better than nothing. Just don't publish useless posts that do nothing more than clutter your blog so people can't find your good content.
