The website is the main platform for any solar installer to facilitate his marketing efforts and to reach the audiences.
It is a medium to interact with the audiences.
A well-designed website can meet your sales goal while a loosely designed one may undermine your efforts to reach the customers.
A solar power system for homeowners is an investment.
A high level of trust is required to maintain before letting them buy a system from you.
A great website is a key to build trust.
In today’s article, I’m going to discuss the key points which help the solar installer to make a powerful website that can achieve his marketing goals.
Great design or a theme
The first thing that a visitor sees on your website is its design. A simple yet eye-catching design draws the reader and compels him to browse further.
Your design should be responsive to get adjust in any screen size. So that people can view your solar website from different devices (either from laptop or mobile) with equal ease.
The header design and its content must hint the visitors about your business and compel/entice them to know more. If you look at the header design of https://www.solarpowerrocks.com/
“Find out how much you can save with solar!”
It tells the visitors that they are in solar business and also igniting the curiosity of knowing the savings with solar.
The sub-heading “Get quotes from the trusted local installers” further attracting them to provide their zip code.
Solar power rocks through its creative header design is receiving the zip codes of the interested homeowners the moment they enter the website.
The next thing to keep in mind is the box width.
We read from left to right.
When the width is large, our eyes lose contact with the next line and it becomes difficult to understand the content.
The right box width makes it easy for visitors to read and understand the content without effort.
Look at the blog: https://www.solarpowerrocks.com/the-solar-blog/
It has limited the box width of the blog nearly 50-60% of the whole screen, making it easy for the visitors to read and understand the content.
Occupying the whole screen may affect the overall performance of the website and it may result in decreasing readership.
The strong navigation can improve the performance of your solar website by making it easy for the visitor to find the information about his choice.
It is better to divide your business products into categories and subcategories.
GREENMATCH has very clearly defined its navigation tab and divided its business products into 6 different categories namely:
The sub-categories under each category give crisp information, making it easy for the visitor to select the product or service of his choice.
An attractive & informative homepage
The homepage should contain all the stuff that tells about your solar business and makes it unique like:
Case studies of real installation
Upload the photographs of the recent solar installations and share the experience of the customers on your website.
People will read it and will serve as testimonials for them.
Eventually, they will take your services.
An updated blog always drives traffic and helps in increasing your sales. Write articles related to your business in the blog.
Above are some of the ideas which you can share among your audiences.
Gradually, you will learn to write your ideas.
