A searchable and easy-to-update Frequently Asked Questions database on your site
Requirements: Perl, Webserver required
Brothersoft Editor: FAQ Search allows you to place a searchable and easy-to-update Frequently Asked Questions database on your site in minutes. One script file, and a single database text file can be uploaded in a few minutes giving your users access to the most recent Answers.
One of the most important pages on a site is a Frequently Asked Questions PaGE. If done well, it serves two important purposes:
1. Users can find the answers to all of their questions in a few minutes and make their decision to purchase more quickly.
2. You save time from answering the same questions over and over again by email. People are also less likely to become 'cold' contacts.
The bonus is that it saves you time as well. Adding new questions is as easy as adding a new line to the text file.
The problem we all face with these kinds of pages is keeping them up-to-date. It's a chore to determine what question is worthy of adding to the page, and then you have to build a Static page, perhaps adding more HTML to an existing page to answer these questions.
Many webmasters don't do anything at all.
Take a look at FAQ-Search. You'll appreciate the ease with which you can interact with your Frequently Asked Questions. You'll love the time it saves you in answering email.
