Your contact page is your way of communicating with your potential client. It needn’t be dull and boring. Put some care and thought into designing your contact page to make it work harder for you and bring customers to your business. Contact, Connect, Communicate!
Here are some ways to spice up your contact page:
1. Make it responsive.
This is a given. Your site should be responsive and so should your contact page be. Users are accessing your site on multiple devices.
Make sure your contact page and form functions well on both desktop and mobile devices. In fact, restaurants, e-stores, taxi and travel services and
other businesses get orders, inquiries and reservations mostly through mobile.
2. Make it visual.
Communication today is more visual than ever. Grab attention with a visual that speaks to the viewer without words, such as an image of your team at work. A Google map adds your location.
3. Make your words count.
You can personalize your contact page with a friendly “Drop us a line, we’ll write to you within 24 hours”, and add the times when you are open.
4. Design it well.
Use headline fonts. Use the site colors and textures, and neatly lay out address and contact information with icons to catch the reader’s eye.
5. Use images of your products with some content that links back to your blog to keep your visitor browsing. Your contact form is part of the user experience.
6. Keep it simple, minimal, clutter-free – yet you can communicate detail: like including the logos of your clients, using beautiful fonts, adding social media icons besides the usual address, email and telephone contacts. Use the opportunity to network! Connect and engage!
7. Use good quality photography, be informal.
8. Think original. The image of a message in a bottle, a message scrawled in sand, or written in the sky can stand out from the crowd.
9. You can make your contact page do more than just let people contact you. You can also get them involved in your work by asking them
(for example) to recommend suitable speakers for conferences, or volunteers for an charity organization.
10. Make sure your contact form collects information you want from your potential client such as contact details, what they are contacting you about, and what you can help them with (depending on what service you are offering).
11. See your contact pages in the context of your website. Sidebar navigation, menu drop-downs, and footer navigation can lead your user back into the site, keep him reading and make more sales.
Here are some examples of contact pages. Remember, keep them simple, clear and attractive and make sure they communicate and connect with your audience while collecting the information that you want from them.
