An FAQ section is the area of a website that takes customers’ most Frequently Asked Questions and provides answers and solutions to them. This section works to improve the navigation and organization of your website by collecting answers in a single place, making it more user-friendly. 

Providing answers and solutions to these questions is a great opportunity to educate your customers. By addressing these questions right away, your business can build a sense of trust with your customers. This increases the likelihood of getting them to checkout. Also, the FAQ section will give relevant information to Google so your website will rank higher in searches related to your services/products and improve your SEO. 

Educate Your Customers and Save Time

Having an FAQ section can quickly educate your customers about your business and the services or products that you provide. This eliminates any confusion potential customers may have and builds a trusting relationship. An FAQ section also makes them more likely to choose your business over another. This trust establishes you as an authority in whatever industry. Learn more about how to thoroughly educate your customers
