Marketing FAQs

Marketing FAQs
  • What are FAQs and why do businesses need them?

    FAQs or Frequently Answered Questions, as the name suggests, are those questions that are commonly asked by customers or potential customers. Instead of repeatedly answering each query, businesses can publish these common questions on their websites, local directories (such as Google My Business, Yelp) or to voice assistants. Therefore, customers can discover the answers to their questions even before they ask. Here are some reasons why publishing FAQs is a MUST today:
    • Voice Search: The question & answer format of FAQs match the conversational answer type of voice search. Therefore, there are higher chances of FAQs getting picked as a preferred voice answer
    • Consistent Brand Image: Customers use multiple channels to look up for answers about business. If FAQs are managed well and are consistent across all channels, that builds trust among customers while building a consistent answer about the brand.
    • Customer Experience: Searching and not finding answers about a business can get frustrating. By proactively answering common questions, businesses deliver a superior experience to customers looking for answers.
    • Reduce Support Time: By publishing answers to commonly asked questions, businesses can reduce the time spent by sales & support teams on individually answering the same question to multiple customers.
    • SEO: FAQs are a great content for SEO purposes and help improve rankings in conventional search.
    Milestone FAQ Manager helps you realize these benefits of effective FAQ management while removing all complexities that are involved in manually managing FAQs across digital channels for multiple locations of your business. The FAQ Manager is an end-to-end FAQ Management solution that lets businesses curate customer questions across channels & locations; and helps publish verified answers to voice assistants and other channels.
  • What are the best sources to collate FAQ content?

    When collating a list of FAQs for your business website, the priority should be content relevancy which means that answering the queries of your customers about your business’s service and products should be your approach. Having FAQs that are sourced from local GMB Q&A, other local directories, chat bot queries, search listening tools with questions of local-flavored content and trends, should be your source to create custom FAQs that cover all aspects of your business and the needs of customers.
  • Why is it important to ensure consistent brand answers across all sources?

    There thousands of touchpoints from where customers will be trying to access information and having inconsistent brand answers online will not only mislead and frustrate your customers, it will result in you losing on potential sales and possible revenue. In addition, having consistent brand answers online not only builds a stong brand image, it instills trust in customers and will lead to higher engagement and rankings as Google will view the website and brand as one that is trustworthy.
  • Are Local Questions & Answers Important?

    According to a ComScore Study, 88 percent of smartphone users and 84 percent of tablet owners conduct local searches which are focused around hours of services, directions to the business, address of the business and queries related to product availability. Ensuing that you have FAQs that are locally flavored are integral if you wish to be found by potential customer easily. Of course, not having such content will just add to the frustration of a potential customer and you’ll end up losing potential sales. Monitoring your GMB Q&A and that of other local directories is essential to ensure that you know the needs of your customers and addressing their concerns in a timely manner.
  • Why is Voice Search important? How can FAQs help get found in Voice search?

    27% of the world population and 58% of the population of the United States of America are using voice search to find their answers and most of these voice search queries are about local businesses or local-flavored content. Ensuring that your business website is optimized for voice search is critical for customers to find you. Voice search is focused on long-tail queries and conversational content and FAQ are the perfect medium to create content that is conversation, long-tail and be that single answer that is picked for a voice search queries.
  • Will content freshness improve my ranking on search? Do FAQs count as fresh content?

    While there is no way to say that fresh content will ensure you website content latches on to the top search results for queries, Google emphasizes on content relevancy. Think about it, what’s news today is archived tomorrow and ensuring that your website content stays relevant is a must for Google to deem it relevant and be the right answer to a query on search. Products and services are forever evolving, and so is your brand, and ensuring that your content keeps up should be the priority. In addition, it gives your website the scope of adding fresh links and answering the most recent queries or concerns of your customers. Of course, FAQs are an excellent medium to have fresh content on your website. FAQs are forever evolving based on the progress of your business - with the products and services on offer, and it’s any easy way to answer the concerns of your customers – which adds up to content relevancy.
