How To Fix My Website Messaging

At Driven Digital, we understand the frustration that can arise when your website messaging fails to connect with your audience.

Do not let confusion overshadow your brand's potential.

Good website messaging is crucial. It can ultimately mean the difference between a visitor navigating away from your website or converting into a valued customer.

We are here to help you transform your website messaging from confusion to clarity.

With this 9-element homepage strategy, we can streamline the process of creating meaningful and direct messages for your manufacturing website. This strategy is key for turning your website visitors into your customers.

01) Header / Banner Message

A website visitor should be able to answer these three critical questions within five seconds of viewing your website:

1. What product or service is being offered?

Do not be vague. Make sure that you state what your manufacturing company does in simple terms. This clarity helps in immediately grounding the visitor’s understanding and aligning their expectations with what you have to offer.

2. How can I get it?

Place a clear call-to-action (CTA):

  • in your banner messaging
  • in the upper right corner of your website

This strategic placement ensures that the next steps are always visible, ultimately guiding users towards conversion with minimal friction.

3. How will it make my life better?

Clearly state how your product or service is going to make your audience’s life better. By highlighting the direct benefits, you are personalizing the experience and enhancing the perceived value of your offerings.

02) Clear Navigation

If you confuse, you lose!

It is vital to keep your website's navigation clear and straightforward. Overly complex or cluttered menus can deter visitors, leading them away from your website rather than deeper into it.

Here are some tips for website navigation:

Simplify Your Menu: Limit the number of items in your menu to avoid overwhelming your visitors.

Use Descriptive Labels: Each menu item should clearly indicate what the visitor will find on that page. Avoid industry jargon that might confuse visitors who aren't familiar with technical terms.

Responsive Design: Ensure your navigation looks good and functions well on all devices.

03) The Stakes

What is at stake if your audience does not purchase your product or service?

Be sure to draw attention to the problems that your potential customers are currently experiencing. Maybe your audience is:

  • wasting money
  • losing out on opportunities
  • wasting time

Illustrating these pain points will vividly create a sense of urgency, essentially highlighting the necessity of your solutions.

04) Value Proposition

What benefits will your customers experience when they purchase your product or service?

Your website messaging should articulate the core advantages of your offerings in a compelling and succinct manner.

The value proposition should resonate with the identified needs and desires of your target audience. In other words, it should effectively communicate why your solution is their best choice.

05) Primary Call-To-Action

Tell your website visitors exactly what you want them to do.

A call-to-action (CTA) is going to prompt your visitors, leads and customers to take action. In other words, it's a "call" to take an "action."

Your primary call-to-action could be:

  • contact us
  • request a quote
  • schedule a free consultation

Make sure that this CTA is bold, unmissable and reiterates the immediate benefit of taking action.

06) Position Yourself As The Guide

To position your manufacturing company as the guide in your customer’s story, you need to establish empathy and authority.

It is important to show that you understand your audience’s challenges. Not only that, but make it known that you have the expertise to successfully solve those problems. This positioning is going to reassure your website visitors that they are in capable hands and that your guidance can lead them to success.

07) Product / Service Description

List the top three to five products or services that you sell.

Not only should this be a factual listing, but it should also include a brief description of each product or service that ties back to the benefits and the problems they solve. This is going to reinforce the applicability and utility of your offerings.

08) Have A Plan

The ‘plan’ section of your website is going to provide your customer with a simple path that shows how simple it is to do business with your manufacturing company.

Outline the steps that your customer will need to take, from the initial inquiry to the final purchase and support, making the process as straightforward as possible.

09) Secondary Call-To-Action (CTA)

A secondary call-to-action (CTA) is optional.

These CTAs might include a softer call to action, like:

  • signing up for a newsletter
  • downloading a white paper

Secondary CTAs provide a less committal way for visitors to engage with your brand, while still building a relationship.
