Your business may not be open 24/7 but your website is always “on”. Having a highly functioning website is critical for flooring dealers as more and more consumers do their shopping online. Your website is always available for customers to use, but how do you know if it is as effective as possible? In this post we will guide you through the process of making a flooring dealer website and ensuring that it is effective.
Flooring Dealer Websites Are More Valuable Than Ever
As we all become more accustomed to doing just about anything online rather than in person, your business’s website has never been more important. It’s where your clients get to know you, your products and services, and begin to build the trust they need to buy.
Start With Your ERP
With the advancements in Application Program Interface (API), a flooring dealer no longer has to try to DIY or hire an expert on web development, SEO optimization, or digital marketing. What once was cumbersome and out-of-reach for many, has been simplified and packaged in a way that any dealer can have a professional, functional, and effective website.
How? It starts with having the right flooring-centric ERP system, like RollMaster. RollMaster Flooring Software holds all of the information on your business from your warehouse through your whole sales process. Gathering all of this information needs to happen first so you can partner with a web design company. This allows you to get your website up and running quickly.
By using API technology you can easily take all of your business information and pair it with a flooring website builder to create a full and detailed website for your flooring company.
Options For Flooring Website Builders
Once you have all of your data in one place, it’s easy to partner with one of several flooring website companies. These businesses are well practiced in the art of designing websites for flooring retailers:
The technology and tools are available now! Many dealers are moving toward taking advantage of this seamless integration to increase their business. Additional benefits include showing available stock online and receiving web leads via this technology.
Make Sure It’s Mobile
2020 was a year most of us spent at home working off a laptop. Even during this year, where all of us spent more time on our computers than ever before, 61% of visits to websites in the US happened from mobile devices. That’s up from 57% in 2019.
It’s critical that your website works perfectly on mobile devices, computers, and tablets. Making it easier for your prospects to connect with your business from their preferred device is key. Having a website that doesn’t work on mobile devices can be very off putting, especially for your younger shoppers. If your website isn’t up-to-date and functional, it may reflect those same attributes on your business.
Build Trust With Social Signals
We’re all more likely to trust a new-to-us business when we see they have lots of positive reviews. Generating those positive reviews, and tying them to your website gives new users the signals they need to begin trusting your business.
