A large portion of our client projects involve commercial construction websites. When we approach a commercial company site design we use a different approach than we would with a residential contractors website. Commercial construction sites are very different than a residential contractor, and here’s why…
Why commercial construction website design is different:
- Commercial websites are predominantly used for branding information purposes
- Commercial websites are not focused on lead generation as much as residential sites
- Commercial websites have very different goals and objectives
- Commercial websites have a much more information and pages
- Commercial websites focus on large B2B clients versus homeowners
- Commercial websites are typically found through word of mouth and referrals
Remember you’re creating a commercial website for your clients not yourself, so make sure you have what is most important to your website visitors. Clear, high quality photos, accessible contact information, credentials, and background information are the key components visitors to your commercial website are looking for. By providing those elements, you offer real value to your visitors, earn their loyalty and ultimately, their business.
