Essential Pages every website must have

When thinking about building a website, there are lots of factors you need to consider. One of the most common questions from small business owners is “What pages should I have on my website?”. When deciding on your website’s content, it’s first important to think about your site visitors and what they will expect to find. Having a clear idea of why your customers are on your site and their end goal will be essential. In this article, we look at some of the must-have pages for your website and explain why you need them.

Homepage

The homepage will likely be the first page your visitors see. It should be compelling enough to catch their attention and entice them in to view the rest of your website. Having an eye-catching ‘hero’ image or slider at the top of the homepage is one way of drawing your visitors in. Alongside this, you should include a brief introduction, a summary of your services, a call to action, and a way to get in contact. It’s also common to include your mission statement and any testimonials you have from clients. Whilst having a nice looking homepage is great. It’s also important to bear in mind that having a lot of content, especially images, can slow your website down. Most users won’t stick around longer than 15 seconds if your website fails to load, or doesn’t provide the information they’re seeking.

About Page

The about page will normally include a longer description about who you are or about the company. This is where you can describe your ethos and the history of the company, for example. Explaining what makes you different from the competition will often convince visitors to stay on your website or make a purchase from you. This is especially true if they can connect with your brand culture and principles. It’s a good idea to showcase any achievements or accreditations the company has received and bios for staff or employees. This will create a more personable experience for your customers.

Services / Products Page

You will want to dedicate a page to showcasing your products and/or services. You should begin with a summary of each offer. If you have multiple services or products, you may want to filter them down into sub-service/product pages and categorise them. In either case, it’s important to include a clear description of what your customers can expect when choosing to use a service or product you sell and explain what stands you above the competition. Finally, you will want to have a call to action such as a button where your customers can click to contact you or complete the order.

Case Studies / Clients / Portfolio Page

Would you buy from a business without seeing any examples of what they did or sold? Providing examples of the work you’ve previously done is a great way of converting visitors into customers. This could be in the form of case studies for your clients, describing the brief, challenges and outcomes you had. Or if you work within the creative industry, then a portfolio page may be more suited. Usually, this will be very visual, consisting of mostly photos that would detail each case when navigated through. Again it’s good to explain the challenges and outcomes so visitors can relate to their own requirements.

Blog / News Page

A blog is a great way to engage with your customers or potential prospects. It gives you a chance to answer common questions, share information on new products, industry trends, company news, or provide some expertise. Having a blog is a great way to market your business and can help increase SEO rankings and conversions. However, failure to keep it updated could have adverse effects on your brand and search engine presence.

Contact Page

There’s no point having a great website if your customers can’t find a way to get in contact with you. This is where your contact page comes in. Typically you want to include your phone number, email address, mailing address, social media channels, and your opening hours. It’s also common to include a contact form that sends an autoresponder message or general information back to the enquirer. Whilst it is vital to have a clear and easily accessible contact page, you should also include your main contact information in places such as the footer and/or header of your website.

Privacy Policy

With data protection regulations becoming more stringent, a privacy policy is a must-have page on any website. It needs to outline what data you collect from visitors to your site and how it is shared, stored and processed. It’s also important to let site users know how they can obtain a copy of all the data that your website collects from them.

Just as important as a privacy policy page is a terms & conditions page. This page will explain the rules that visitors must abide by when using your website. You will want to include how your website functions and the rules and guidelines underlying its use. It should also include information on which country’s law governs the agreement, an intellectual property disclosure or copyright laws in place and a clause explaining that you’re not responsible for any links to third parties.

Should My small business have a website?

In the last few years, there has been an active push for consumers to “shop local” and support small businesses, and that is largely made possible through the internet. Being able to have an online storefront and market to customers outside of your geographic area is a huge opportunity for many entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. For all of these reasons, it is important that every small business have a website.

Having a strong online presence can truly be a make or break for any business. We’ve asked 12 small business leaders how important having a website is to them and what opportunities it has created for their organizations. Keep reading to learn how a website can take your business to the next level! 

It’s the Welcome Mat

The website is the gateway, door, and welcome mat of a business. It should educate the consumer as well as elicit emotion. It is the very first impression that will be made on the consumer and can determine with certainty whether or not the consumer will continue engagement.
– Michael Herion, Carrot Eye Center

It Shows You Actually Exists

A small business needs a website to drive business in today’s digital world. Without a website, you give up much, if not most, of your potential business because consumers will not be able to learn anything about you or your business’s offerings. If not for anything else, a website will show your audience that you really do exist.
– Court Will, Will & Will

It Shows Potential Clients If Your Business Is the Right Fit

A small business needs to have a platform that accurately represents who they are and why people should buy their products or use their services. When potential customers are searching for a product or service, you want your website available for them to click on. You want them to see a clean functional website that makes you feel like your business is the right choice for them. A website represents your brand in the digital space and without it, it would be difficult to have a strong online brand presence. 
– Rex Murphy, Montauk Services

People Need to Find You on Google 

In today’s digital world, people turn to Google to find practically anything and everything. From answers to questions to products and services near them. Search engines play an important role in the online success of businesses. Without a website, potential customers will be unable to find you in their searches. Creating a central location to store your address, your phone number, a contact form, a products/ service list, prices, etc. will open the door for people to find your business online. 
– Kayla Centeno, Markitors

Increase in Business Credibility

Having a website increases your business credibility. In our digital age, not having a website for your business is grounds for suspicion and you will not be able to convert as many sales as you would if you had a more stable digital presence. Customers will seek you out online and having a website is one of the criteria for determining trustworthiness.
– Liz Riggleman, Arrowlift 

It Allows You to Compete

Every business should have a website for the same reason you plant a seed. Getting a website is the first step toward putting your business in an environment where it can thrive. It allows you to promote your product, build credibility, distinguish yourself, and quite frankly – compete. If you’re not on the internet these days, you’re not being competitive and you will miss out on opportunities, even from loyal customers. If your customers can’t find you, they will find someone else.
– Sydney Stern Miller, Tech Talent South

It Expands Your Physical Location

Websites are one of the best investments in serendipity you can make. Here’s what I mean: when you operate from a single location, your presence tends to be restricted to where you are. With a website, you might reach people in other countries or on the other side of the world. Some of these people may become customers, investors, or suppliers; and they never would have found you if you didn’t have a website.
– Tasia Duske, Museum Hack

It Is a Reflection of the Service You Will Provide

A small business should utilize a website in order to effectively reach its client base and be able to react and communicate timely and effectively to its current and prospective clients. Moreover, today’s consumers utilize websites not only to identify businesses with which to conduct a transaction but also to gauge the trustworthiness or ‘fitness’ of that small business. An inadequate or ‘out of date’ website may convey laziness or inattention to detail to today’s consumer – traits that are extremely unattractive and lead the prospective client to ‘swipe left’.
– Robert Rutila, Blythe Grace

It’s Your Digital Brochure

At its basic core, a website replaces a brochure. It is informational in nature, offering people insights into who you are, why you are different, and what you provide or sell. At its best, a website can build community, connection, and loyalty when content is kept fresh and engaging. With the majority of people searching via mobile devices, websites must be mobile optimized.
– Lorraine Bossé-Smith, Leadership Development Coach

Your Own Domain Name Increases Credibility

Having a website gives your small business legitimacy. When someone is searching for your product or service online, you want to appear in those search results. Additionally, having your own domain name (company.com) gives your email address additional legitimacy — if you’re sending an email from a personal email, potential customers may not take you as seriously.

Additionally, every small business needs a website and social media as well. I advise the entrepreneurs I work with to focus on their “core 4” social media channels: LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Once you have launched your website, you can cross-promote it by sharing it on social media as well.
– Lauren Patrick, Curricula

It’s Free Advertising

Having a professional website will mean that people who are looking for you can find you and get the information they need. But if you optimize your website well, it can also mean you’ll show up in search results for people who didn’t even know they were looking for you.

Create pages that talk about the services you offer and where you offer them. Or publish pages that describe your products or explain how to solve problems you commonly solve. You can go from being an invisible plumber in Cleveland, for example, to a plumber in Cleveland who shows up whenever someone nearby searches for how to unclog a drain.
– Elliot Brown, OnPay

It’s Crucial During a Pandemic

During the pandemic, it may be the only way that potential customers will find you. Beyond that, customers love the convenience of shopping from home. Businesses without a web presence will miss out on these customers. They also may be considered out of date or not “with it” by those who have grown up on the internet.
– Colleen McManus, Senior Consultant
