Because construction involves a strong visual component, the right images are critical for communicating the value of your company. Choose website images that showcase your expertise and convey your personality, and you’ll convert more of your visitors into clients.
Sometimes the benefits you offer clients just can’t be fully conveyed with words. Photos, however, show your prospects exactly how your work outshines your competitors’. This goes beyond your basic portfolio. If you pride yourself on your flexibility, choose photos that show how your building projects have met some of your clients’ unconventional requests. If you carefully select high quality building materials, use pictures that demonstrate how your preferred materials compare to inferior products.
Build an Emotional Connection
While photos of your work are important, they aren’t the only thing your prospects want to see. Pictures of your team help would-be clients get a sense of who you are as people and let you express your personality in a way that speaks to your ideal clients. Candid shots from the company picnic reveal a family-friendly side that can help attract new home builders, whereas pictures of your design team in the office might appeal to more business-minded clients. If aging-in-place remodeling is one of your specialties, a picture of your happy clients showing off their home’s new features assures your older prospects people just like them trust you.
Guide Your Visitors
Most people skim webpages, so they can easily end up lost and confused. Graphics grab your visitors’ attention and let you guide them where you want them to go. Arrows and icons lead your visitors through your marketing funnel. Diagrams, illustrations, and text boxes get critical ideas across and clarify complex concepts. That’s particularly important in specialist fields where your clients might not fully understand everything that goes into their construction projects. The better your prospects understand what you do and how your expertise benefits them, the more likely they are to chose your company.
