Goals and Audience
What is the primary purpose for your website? In other words, what is the main thing you'd like visitors to your website to do? (Call you, sign up for your email list, buy your products, download an eBook, schedule an appointment online, etc.)
Choose one audience. The more audiences you try to reach, the more likely you will fail. Who are you speaking to? What are the business titles of the people you’re trying to reach? Where do they work? What do they like to do? What do they care about? Where do they spend time (online and in person)?
What geographic region are you going to be reaching with your website? (city, state, region, country, international?)
Defining Your Message
When someone lands on your website, it is critical to quickly let them know why they are there and how they will benefit from what you're doing. The next few questions will help us focus and clarify your message.
Knowledge: What do you know? What is your specific area within the field of information in which you are an expert? For example, in the area of raising chickens, you know how to raise chickens in your own backyard. Or, in the field of swimming pools, you know about installing inground, fiberglass pools.
Skill: What are your strengths and abilities that you will use to build your audience? For example, maybe you are really good at taking complex issues and simplifying them down to a simple, easily communicated concept. Maybe you’re really motivational and it’s easy for you to energize and encourage people. Perhaps, your skills lie in teaching and you can break down large processes into easy to follow step-by-step tasks. Maybe research is your strong point and you constantly have thorough and current information in your field of expertise.
Please complete this sentence: In the area of _____ I/We know about (how to) _____ .
Please complete this sentence: Our/My company is good at _______ which helps people _____.
After thinking through your audience, knowledge, and skill, the point where these three spheres overlap is the area you want to focus on. That’s your sweet spot. When someone lands on your website, what is the one sentence that will tell them exactly why they are there and what they are going to get from your content.
For example, if you look at oasiscreative.com you will see Our mission statement which is:
We Build Beautiful Online Experiences
Write a short sentence or phrase that defines the purpose behind what you are doing.
