Types of sections you can add

Premium sections (available with Starter, Business, and Mogul plans)

Banner

A banner on a website is a graphic or visual element that serves as a prominent visual cue to draw attention to a specific message, promotion, or call to action (CTA). Banners are typically displayed at the top of a website and are often the first thing visitors see when they land on a site. Banners come in various shapes and sizes, but they usually contain full-width images that span the entire width of the screen. Many websites utilize banners to communicate important information to their visitors. It is essential to keep in mind that banners should be visually appealing and relevant to the content of the website.

Calendly

Integrating Calendly with your Durable site allows visitors to book meetings directly from your website. You can check this help centre page: Integrate Calendly into your site for detailed information and instructions.

Call to action

In its simplest form, a call-to-action (CTA) is a piece of content, usually in the form of a phrase or button, that directs or encourages the audience to take a specific action. This action can be anything from signing up for a newsletter to booking a service. A CTA is like a virtual signpost, indicating to users what they should do next. One of the main reasons why a call-to-action is important is because it guides website visitors towards a specific goal or objective.

Contact form

Using a Contact Form is one of the best ways to interact with potential customers and attract new business. Its convenience, organization, and efficiency make it a valuable tool for any business looking to engage with potential clients. Another benefit of using our contact form section is that you can manage all the communication from the contact form within Durable's CRM.

For more details about managing the section and contacts, please see these pages:

Embed

If you already have custom HTML components, you can insert them as an embed section. For example, you can add customized forms, customized contact forms, etc. Please note that Durable doesn't validate the custom code.

For detailed instructions, please follow the instructions on this page:

FAQ

The FAQ section is an essential part of any business website. It stands for Frequently Asked Questions, allowing users to find answers to common questions quickly and efficiently. Firstly, it saves time for both your customers and your support team. Customers can easily find the information they need without contacting your support team by providing answers to commonly asked questions. The FAQ section also helps to build trust and credibility with your customers. By anticipating their questions and providing comprehensive and accurate answers, you demonstrate that you value their time and are committed to providing excellent customer service.

Google Reviews

Google Reviews is a feature offered by Google that allows customers to leave reviews and feedback for businesses they have interacted with. These reviews can then be easily seen by other potential customers doing a Google search for your business or related services. This means that Google Reviews can impact a customer's decision to choose your business over others.

The first and most obvious benefit of having Google Reviews is that it can significantly increase your business's visibility. When someone searches for your business on Google, having many positive reviews can help your business rank higher in search results. Along with the FAQ section, Google Reviews can increase your business's trust and communicate your business values to your customers.

To add a Google Reviews section, you can follow this guidance: Add Google Reviews to your site.

Image

The image section can display a single image. You can upload your image, or you can use the stock photo that is available for your plan. Whether creating a website for your business or revamping an existing one, choosing the right images to showcase your brand is essential. Images are not just visually appealing, but they also have the power to convey your brand's message and values. The first step to choosing the right image for your website is identifying the image you want to portray for your brand. Every business has its unique identity, and your image choices should reflect that. When choosing images for your website, keeping your target audience in mind is essential. Think about their demographics, interests, and preferences.

Image carousel

(Previously called as a gallery section)

The image carousel section can showcase a series of images (up to 12 images) on your site. An image gallery is a valuable tool for organizing and showcasing a collection of images on a website.

With an image gallery, you can present your images in an organized and attractive layout, making it easier for users to engage with your content. Additionally, an image gallery can help improve the user experience on your website. By grouping similar images in a gallery, users can quickly find the images they are interested in, saving them time and effort. This can be particularly useful for websites with many images, such as work or photography portfolios.

Adding alt tags and captions to your images in an image gallery can improve your website's overall SEO. Alt tags describe the content of an image and help search engines understand what the image is about.

Pricing table

If you are a business owner or service provider, having a pricing table on your website can be highly beneficial. Not only does it offer a clear and organized way to display your products or services, but it can also enhance the user experience. It provides a clear and organized way to present your products or services to potential customers. Instead of listing prices and features in a long paragraph or scattered throughout your website, a pricing table allows users to easily compare and understand the different options available. This can save a lot of time and effort for customers, making it more likely for them to choose your business. A well-designed pricing table can enhance the overall look and feel of your website and make it more visually appealing.

The testimonials section showcases positive feedback and reviews from satisfied customers or clients. It provides social proof, demonstrating the quality and reliability of your products or services. This page can help build trust and credibility and encourage potential customers to choose your business over competitors.

Services

When searching for a service or product, customers often turn to the Internet for assistance. They rely on websites to learn more about a business and the services offered. By showcasing your business’s services through the service section, you allow customers to read and view your services in a convenient and easy-to-access format.

Team Members

You can list your team members in this section. First and foremost, displaying the team members on your website can increase transparency and build trust with your audience. Knowing who the people behind a company are can help customers feel more connected and confident in the brand.

Additionally, showing the team members can also add a personal touch to the website. Visitors can get a sense of the personalities and expertise within the team. This can make the company appear more welcoming and approachable, leading to increased customer engagement. Another benefit of showcasing team members is the opportunity to highlight their accomplishments and qualifications. By including their experiences and skills, potential customers can see the expertise and credibility of the staff.


Text
