B2B Web Design vs. B2C Websites
B2B websites are different than “retail” websites. There is more content, more specifics and a stronger need for branding. Manufacturing website design means promoting a company’s capabilities and products, defining that business’ image, and effectively illustrating what makes you a leader in your field.
Industrial, technological, medical and life sciences, and manufacturing website design must present a lot of information very quickly including product specs, order capabilities, customization and more. Combine that amount of information with the fact that people only read about 30 percent of the words on a web page, and you can see the challenge. Website design for a B2B organization needs to highlight the key facts quickly.
The Importance of Keyword Research and Refinement
Keyword research helps marketers determine which “key words” or best phrases can be used to help reach your right target audience. Once you have key data points, you will want to expand and evaluate. If some terms are too broad (or too expensive), look deeper at the opportunities. Are more specific phrases available with good search traffic volumes? Are some keywords showing lots of search traffic and relevancy, and we should explore similar phases, synonyms, etc.?
One effective strategy to help determine keyword viability is to simply conduct a Google search – see the results that appear and be sure what you expected to appear is what is displayed – and appropriate for your marketing goals. If more than 50 percent of search results are not relevant – especially when using a long tail B2B keyword phrase – this should be a signal. Either you have identified a great opportunity, or you are not using the right phrase. The more irrelevant the expected search results are, the more likely the target that you want is going to change their search query and re-check a new phrase.
Getting a final keyword target list is a time-consuming process. It takes evaluation, review, additional research and discussion. Check out our blog post for more about keyword research and how we can help maximize your targeting.
