What is a microsite, you wonder? In essence, a microsite is an extension of your main website. Also known as minisites or weblets, these sites are the newest web design iteration and usually consist of only five or six focused pages. The sites are used in order for an organization to offer more in-depth information on a product or service; to deal with sensitive information; new or differing brands of the parent organization; affiliate companies; special promotions; or new product launches. These small, focused areas of the website can be created cost effectively and add a lot of marketing appeal to an organization’s main website. Sites can be designed to achieve higher search engine rankings for specific searches, which can be tied to marketing campaigns and loaded with plenty of inbound links tied to the main website. Another aspect of a minisite is the ability to appeal to a completely different target audience. Because the site can be given a unique URL, it can be used as a tool to track visitors. It’s also a way to test marketing response to the information on the site. Visitors can go directly to the site without having to navigate and search through your main website.
Microsites can be tied directly to the subject matter and tied visually to the marketing message. This design flexibility isn’t the norm for a main website. As well, any distractions like the navigation bar are also removed so the viewer only focuses on the subject matter/campaign.
