If, as a business owner, you are here reading this - that means two things:
First, you have an impeccable taste (congratulations), and second, you’ve recognized the importance of having a strong FAQ section on your company website.
FAQs have become increasingly important when converting passive browsers into paying customers, so getting them right matters.
Fortunately for those of you who haven’t learned to code, we at Notice Studio provide WordPress FAQ plugins that allow anyone to create and deploy top-of-the-line FAQ sections without any technical knowledge whatsoever.
Without further ado, let’s jump in!
WordPress FAQ Plugins allow you to add a customized FAQ section to your site in practically no time at all, as they’re already pre-coded. You can add them to your page layout, then simply write in the FAQs and the corresponding answers. Then, within a few clicks, your brand-new FAQ section is up and running.
Tools like WordPress FAQ plugins benefit both you and your users in several different ways, which we’ll explore below:
A FAQ section is intended to provide instant answers to customers’ most common queries.
Providing the customer with an instant response to a pressing concern elevates customer satisfaction and increases time spent on-site.
FAQs can help you alleviate customer concerns, by answering the most pressing questions that a customer has. With FAQs, users can make a more informed choice on your product, which means they’ll be more likely to convert.
A WordPress FAQ plugin saves many billable hours that would otherwise have gone into creating and maintaining a website FAQ section.
Plus, by preemptively answering a user’s potential questions, you can avoid lengthy web chat or phone call sessions, saving you and your team a ton of time.
Tools such as FAQ plugins work to streamline your business processes which helps ensure your operations are as efficient and effective as possible.
The Google search engine gives preference to websites that have FAQ pages over those that don’t. They’re an aspect of SEO content that your business shouldn’t ignore!
FAQs also feature increasingly in ‘People Also Ask…’ and Position 0/Featured Snippets which is a fantastic way to drive organic growth.
Some plugins can do the job but might be missing features you need such as SEO benefits or a customizable display.
Obviously, if you’re using WordPress, you’ll want to ensure the plugin is compatible. There’s no point paying for a plugin, only to realize that you can’t use it.
Most businesses will choose to go pro because the additional support they receive is well worth the modest licensing cost. That being said, there are also some free versions out there that’ll work if you’re on a shoestring budget, but you may have to make some sacrifices in terms of design and support.
Notice Studio is a new player in the game whose goal is to simplify and democratize content management on the web by enabling small marketing teams to scale their content creation.
Notice FAQ enables no-coders to design and deploy an SEO-friendly FAQ section that has been designed to rank on Google Rich Snippets in a matter of minutes.
