A potential customer considers many aspects before choosing a business that they would consider purchasing something from.
No matter how well your website or even social media handles expresses what your brand values are and what your business offers its customers, a majority of target audience will still have questions on your products, services or anything else.
Stated above is the reason why every website needs an effective frequently asked questions or FAQ page. However, building one may not be a cakewalk, but this blog hopes to make you successful at that.
The Right Approach To Help You Build An Effective FAQ Page For Your Website
Have an effective page design
The first thing any visitor notices on landing on any webpage is the page design, meaning that it plays a major role in creating an impression.
No matter how good the quality of content is, a bad design for a website may mean that no visitor would bother staying long enough to even go through any content at all. Overall, a good overall website design will ensure an attractive design for every page. Also, keep your homepage easily accessible from every page on your website for a smoother navigation for visitor, especially new ones.
Brainstorm with members from each team
Not everyone thinks alike. Brainstorming with members from each and every team that makes up your business ensures a variety of inputs and further ideas which in turn help in forming an effective FAQ page that includes the most important of these ideas.
Think like a customer
The unsaid rule for any business to excel is to first think like a customer.
If you were your own customer, would you opt for your business offerings? Even in the case of FAQ, imagine the question that customers may have and include them on the page. Always use easily understandable language and explain complicated terms or jargons that may not be otherwise commonly known.
Offer page visitors multifaceted answers
A single topic may have a deeper root. Include multifaceted answers to all questions where applicable, without steering away from the topic. Adding different questions that are just slightly different from an already existing question could just further confuse visitors.
Keep answers to questions as brief as possible
There is no need to explain in paragraphs where one line is sufficient to answer a question. An FAQ page must have short yet precise answers to questions. If longer explanation is required while answers already exist on different pages on your website, it is a good idea to add these web pages as hyperlinks rather than including lengthy text as answers.
Keep the page updated at all times
A business that is doing well grows faster than expected, which also means that their offerings change or at least update for the better. At the same time, the number of valid questions from target audience or customers may also increase. Thus, always keep the page updated and helpful to visitors.
Link contact page from FAQ page
Regardless of putting in efforts, this page may still lack something simply because a million customers would mean a million different thoughts. Encourage visitors to contact you in case they don’t find what they are looking for by visibly including the link to your contact page, such as an added button, on the same page.
No matter how beautiful your website is with attractive content that is also placed well across the website, an informative website is what makes it successful in gaining trust and increasing conversions.
