Most businesses have a specific service or coverage area. This should be immediately obvious to your website visitors, ideally without even reading any text. For example, a Melbourne based service business should include Melbourne iconography within the website’s design. Examples include:
- Landscape / Cityscape Photography
- Local Area Landmarks
- State Shape or Map (Explicit)
- The Australian Flag
- Australian Iconography
- Typography to Highlight Service Area
- List of Suburbs (Good for SEO also)
Melbourne has developed a unique and recognisable skyline that can instantly communicate the geographic location of your business. This technique alone can increase the number of website enquires, leads and sales by more than 20%.
