This process video should be on your website
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel
How easy is it for people to understand the process of working with you? I’m not talking about the process you’ve named either. I’m referring to looking at your website and saying I wonder what the next steps are in working with this person or this business?
Yes having that content on your site is important in clearly explaining what the steps are but what if you could accomplish that with a 60-90 second video which medium do you think people will consume?
I recently got to help Erica Thowe out with her video marketing for her website. Obviously she needed a brand video to showcase the problems she solves and who she is, but I also told her the next most important video is a video about her process.
In this video we cover:
- That the prospect needs to fill out the form in order for Erica to get back to them
- How soon will she reach back out to them
- Where will the meeting take place
- What will she cover
- What’s the end result
On a side note, make sure this video is towards the top of the page and don’t burry it towards the bottom and also make it’s short and to the point! Erica’s site does a great job of this in positioning the video and form at a great spot, you can check it out here: http://www.ericakaydesign.com/process
P.s. Have you thought of leaving part of your Christmas card design blank so you could write a personal note on it to your clients? Yeah it takes more time but how many hand written cards will you get this year? Food for thought for next year!
About Marcus Rangel
I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.
Does your website need help?
If today is January 1, 2023 how do you feel about your website? Well, it’s not really 2023 yet but what if it was? I worked recently with The Pennant restaurant team on reworking their messaging and home page “presentation.” It wasn’t because their first impression was bad, but a lot has changed since they opened their doors and I designed their site back in 2018. Here’s what we looked at and what could help you think through as you think about your business heading into the new year: I considered the Pennant’s site a refresh because it wasn’t throwing away everything we had done in the past, but rather refreshing the home page and a few other core pages they wanted to focus on.…Read More
Have you ever filled out a website form and instantly regretted it later? We experienced this when we filled out a form to get a quote from a moving company, they farmed out our name and contact info and we were getting calls every hour for several weeks… it was so bad I had to silence any phone number my phone didn’t recognize. Now I know you would never do that, so let’s talk about what it should look like when someone fills out a form and why it’s important. If you start to think of forms being filled out on your website as the lifeblood of your business online, it can really transform what message you put online, how automated it should be, and…Read More
