Patrick O’Reilly, a Riverside, California, communications professional, creates marketing programs that enhance brand awareness. Through his Riverside-headquartered company, Patrick O’Reilly offers assistance with various types of marketing collateral.
Traditional marketing collateral consists of printed brochures, direct mail, sales sheets, and posters. However, technology has made it imperative for companies to also invest in digital media, ranging from electronic versions of traditional collateral to PowerPoint presentations that can be easily disseminated to the public.
Particularly, a website is a form of digital collateral that plays a crucial role in boosting sales. It serves the purpose of communicating mission and value statements as well as selling products and services. For optimal return, a website should be laid out and written in a manner that clearly presents information to prospective buyers. Details on product specifications and retail price as well as benefits can entice a consumer to purchase a product or service. For further engagement, a website can be transformed into an interactive site that is visually appealing to encourage visitors to review a site longer. This gives a business more opportunities to convince a buyer that its product or service is worth the investment.
