Small business website

Grow your online presence with a small business website

A compelling website offers big benefits for small businesses. From building credibility with customers and generating leads to helping new prospects find your business faster, a small business website is one of the best tools for building your presence online.

While some small businesses choose to design, build and maintain their own websites, the time required for this endeavor can be challenging. Additionally, because building a website requires such a diverse set of skills, many businesses that build their own sites are dissatisfied with the final product. That’s where small business website services can help. By hiring turnkey design services, business owners can avoid the hassle of trying to design, write, optimize and maintain a site on their own.

As a do-it-all platform with business management tools, Thryv offers a small business website package that delivers all the services required to create and manage a compelling site. With Thryv, you can trust the development of your online presence to a team of professionals who know how to build a site that will impress your visitors and enhance your credibility.

How to build a compelling small business website

When building a small business website, you’ll want to focus on several key components that can help build credibility and convert visitors to customers.

An easy online experience
When your website delivers an exceptional experience, viewers will develop a positive view of your business. Make sure your site is visually compelling, easy to navigate, highly informative and mobile-friendly, with pages that load quickly. If your website fails to deliver a positive experience, visitors may lose interest in your site and your business.

Helpful content
Posting content that visitors find helpful is a great way to drive more traffic to your site. Content can include blog posts with helpful tips and insights, intriguing articles, entertaining podcasts and interesting infographics.

Information that builds trust
Many visitors will come to your website to see if they find your business credible. Posting reviews, listing awards you’ve received and providing information on an About Us page will give you a head start on developing a trustworthy reputation with your target audience.

Easy navigation
Visitors to your website want to find information quickly and easily. A Frequently Asked Questions page is a great tool for providing details in an easy-to-digest format. Make sure your site is easy to navigate and that viewers won’t have to search for your contact information. Using jargon-free language that’s easy to understand will leave customers with the impression that you are easy to do business with.

Compelling calls to action
Calls to action (CTAs) are short, compelling directions that nudge customers to act. CTAs may encourage customers to click for a free offer, sign up for a newsletter, or book an appointment now.
