Website Checklist for Business Owners in the Energy Industry
Want to make sure you’ve collected everything you need to create the best possible website for your business? We’ve got you covered. We’ve curated a few simple steps you can take right now that will help you go the extra mile in creating a new website that will stand out to your potential customers. We recommend looking at other websites for inspiration, finding your best logo (or logos if you use more than one), taking pictures of your business, equipment, and employees, as well as reaching out to your employees for valuable customer insights that can make your site even more user-friendly.
Take Photos of Your Business (Get Employees Involved!)
First things first, take photos of your business and your everyday business activities to include on your new website. Do you have images of your delivery or service trucks or photos of equipment installations you’ve completed? How about a couple of images of your staff and your office building? By collecting photos of your business, we can include these images on your website to help your customers and potential customers recognize your company in the community. Be sure to send these over to our team at Consumer Focus as we begin designing your new website.
Gather Logos and Marketing Materials
Next, be sure to gather your best logo (or logos if you use more than one) to provide to our web design and programming team at Consumer Focus. We’ll be sure to design a website that incorporates and complements the existing design of your company’s logo. You can also provide any existing marketing materials you use such as service plan brochures if you wish for this content to be included on your new website.
Look at Other Websites for Inspiration
Be sure to do your homework. By looking at other websites for inspiration (especially of other businesses in the energy industry), you will be able to determine the exact features you would like your website to include. Do you like the look of a revolving banner on your homepage? Are you interested in implementing a customer portal or online bill pay feature on your website? What services would you like to highlight front and center? Do they change seasonally? These are all examples of questions you might consider when looking for inspiration for your own website. If you’re unsure of where to begin, check out some of the websites we’ve created for clients in the past to get ideas!
Ask Employees for Input and Customer Insights
Your employees can be a valuable untapped resource when it comes to gathering important customer insights to incorporate into your new website design. It is a great idea to hold a meeting with your staff to ask for suggestions they may have for your new website and website features. Your team’s interactions with your customers on a day-to-day basis are extremely important to not only your business, but your website as well. At Consumer Focus, we aim to take into account what your customer base would like to see on your website and what features would make your website easier to navigate for them. By opening up this line of communication with your staff, you will certainly have some key features to implement on your new site.
