  • Location pages: useful when your business want to rank your webpages in many different locations.

What type of content should go on a services page?

The anatomy of a high performing services page can be broken down into a few key points. If you understand each of these points and the type information that should be included on the page by the end of this article you will have a high performing services page that is designed to convert website traffic into potential clients. 

Lets dive straight into it!

Short Descriptive Headline 

The first portion of a high performing services page is a short descriptive headline. Think about this as being your initial elevator pitch to a potential client. Your service page headline should also include the most important keywords you are trying to be found for.

Reasons why this works 

Let’s break down some of the reasons why this headline works so well

  1.  Includes relevant keywords
  2.  Relevant description of the service
  3.  Provides a unique value proposition for the ways we help XYZ type of company.

Fast Visual Credibility 

Establishing visual credibility means differentiating your brand from your competition. This can be achieved by using logos of companies you’ve worked with or meaningful statistics or other elements like awards / accolades that set you apart.

Answers to Top Questions (FAQs)

Before a prospect can become a paying customer they likely have questions. During step three of the services page process you should look to answer top questions that your potential clients may have about the service that you provide. 

This is a great opportunity to answer questions from people even before they are asked. For example, at Cindtoro we provide search engine optimization services. Our customers fall into two different types of people. Those who know about SEO and those who don’t know anything about the service or the process. 

Here is an example of a common question we get from people who are new to the world of search engine optimization SEO “is how long does it take?”

Well the answer to the question is about 3 to 6 months before it starts working. 

Answers to top questions are important because by answering a question before somebody has asked it or by anticipating the questions they will ask it creates a smoother sales cycle and makes it easier to close the deal.

Clear Concise Content 

 Would you read a mountain of text from a website? Chances are probably not most people wouldn’t. Which is why when it comes to writing the perfect services page you should opt to have clear and concise content that covers the most important elements of your business. 

Look to utilize things like bullet points, and breaking up large paragraphs into smaller bite sized sections people can easily read and understand. You do not want your prospects to have to dig through information just to find the answer they were looking for.

Length of Content Best Practices  

You may have heard that longer content is better for search engine optimization. While this is true services pages do not need to be a massive amount of words.

Ideally your services page should be anywhere between 750 to 1,000 words for each service that your company has. if you need more words than 1000 consider ways on how to break up the page so it’s not overwhelming.

Client Testimonials 

Testimonials are another great thing to add on to a services page. Social proof should be from people who have utilized the service in the past as they can show how the results of the service benefited them this can help to encourage potential prospects as to why they should utilize your company for XYZ service that you offer.

Powerful Supportive Visuals 

 A high quality services page has powerfully supportive visuals. These visuals could be things like reasons to use the service, the benefits that people may receive or other enhancements to the page that help break up text heavy areas.

Faces of Real People 

At the end of the day it’s important to remember that business still deals with real people this will never change. Which is exactly why you should want to have faces of real people on your website. anybody can utilize stock photos from the internet.

These stock photos are often boring and not unique and they do not distinguish your company from others. That is why if you want a high-performing services page you should, when possible utilize faces of real people before you use stock photos.

Data / Statistics  

Some companies may not be able to highlight previous testimonials from past clients due to legal concerns, contracts or anything else that may hold them back from using social proof as a trust builder.

if you fall into that category luckily for you data and statistics will help you get out of the hole. This information could be things like: the number of employees you have, the results of your service, and any other noteworthy statistic that you can think of that will help set you apart from your competition.

Here is an example on how to use data / statistics from our own website

Compelling calls to action CTAs

If you don’t ask people to do something then the chances are said thing will not get done.

In digital marketing terms you need to have clear and compelling calls to action on your services page that help people take the desired action you want them to.

This is the opportunity to ask potential prospects what you want them to do: call now, schedule an appointment, tour a property, basically any action that is important to your business is what you should call out with your CTA section. 

Clear and understandable “flow” of information

We chose to put clear and understandable flow of information at the bottom of this article because now that you know the various elements for a high performing services page you will need to come up with a process that fits for your business and clients needs.

Information needs to flow clearly and concisely based upon the goals of your business.

For example, you can start with a clear headline, then you may add some social proof, from there you could have the benefits of your service or you can add your call to action.

When you structure your services page you need to think about what the life cycle is of your potential client how do they buy products what is important to them?
