Center of Expertise

Buyers are often looking for expertise to help them make the best purchasing decision.  A Best Practice Website often has lots of information to help your audience get educated in order to make an intelligent buying decision.  Profiling your knowledge informs your audience that your company is an expert in your field; worth talking to and desirable to do business with.

Your Qualifications

Buyers also want to know what makes you qualified.  In addition to your expertise, they want to know if you have happy customers, if you have additional credentials that qualify you as a quality company to do business with.  Quotes, testimonials, case studies, awards, peer recognition, and industry expertise can all contribute to your qualifications and Website Best Practices.
