It's the 21st century and nearly every legitmate entity in the world uses a mission statement. Online and off.
A mission statement on your website should now be considered standard. For any commercial website, personal website, e-business, ezine, newsletter, etc. Large or small.
What is a website mission statement?A website mission statement is a clear and concise written statement which sets forth a website's purpose, goal, values, principles and target audience.
The internet's leading websites - from Fortune 500 companies to high-tech heavyweights to ivy league universities to your favorite professional sports teams - can spend weeks and months and can spend thousands, even tens of thousands, of dollars to create a mission statement. I'll show you how to create a website mission statement and put it on your website ... in a lot less time ... and, no, it won't cost you a fortune!
A website mission statement adds an important dimension to your web presence; it lets the world (your visitors, customers, suppliers, etc.) know what you and your website are all about; your value system, your guiding principles, underlying humanitarian motivation, who exactly you are most interested in attracting to your site and why.
What does that do for you and your website? A proper website mission statement can make visitors feel more comfortable, be more interested in, and feel more personally connected to, your website. They'll be able to better relate to your site. Why is that important? Because online, people have big fears; fear of getting ripped off, fear of getting a virus, privacy fears, etc.
According to published results of a project by Consumers Union (publisher of Consumer Reports) 67% of AOL subscribers express low levels of trust in e-commerce sites, while a similar 71% of MSN users express such a low level. (aol alone has approx 25 million subscribers!)
Just think of your own anxieties and concerns while visiting sites on the internet. It's a matter of TRUST ... and a high percentage of people do not trust sites they visit online. A website mission statement can help reduce your visitors' fear and mistrust. And that can help YOUR site achieve the goals you want to achieve online.
Who is a website mission statement for? It's for anyone who has a website. Large or small. Personal or commercial. Any category.
(please note: this type of website mission statement works best if you are the webmaster and owner of your site. If you are a large, established or public company or have many partners, etc you will probably want a more sophisticated, more complicated mission statement created in-house or via an advertising agency).
How do you get a website mission statement? you don't "get" a website mission statement, you create one. It's a unique and completely customized process. A proper website mission statement is also short and to the point ... and sets forth what you wish most to accomplish with your site. And no, a mission statement is not about meta tags or having the latest bells & whistles on your site, or making lots of money or getting lots of traffic or winning awards (though those things are nice!). Beyond the content on your website, beyond the graphics, beyond the About Me page and contact info, etc. your visitors want to know (consciously or subconsciously) if they can trust you and your site, they want to know what kind of person they are dealing with, what you stand for, what kind of ethics you have. Let them know - with a website mission statement.
