Strong relationships with investors are essential in today's fast-paced business environment. Taking the initiative to enhance engagement with your stakeholders will greatly benefit your venture. One way to achieve this is through a dedicated page for shareholders on your website.
First off, an exclusive shareholder page on your website makes your existing stockholders feel welcome, especially for new ones. It also contains information that is specific to them and not just your general investor audience.
This unique page serves as a one-stop-shop for all stockholder-related facts, such as key ASX announcements, financial reports, and updates. With these info readily available, stakeholders will stay abreast about your performance. This in turn helps build trust and confidence in your business.
A shareholder page may even allow stockholders to get answers to frequently asked questions or complete certain tasks online. It may entail a shareholder login for real-time transactions and access to account details.
Moreover, a dedicated shareholder page shows that your organisation values its stockholders and is committed to bringing them up to date. This can lead to increased investor engagement, which can have a positive impact on your company's stock price and overall reputation.
A shareholder page gives readily available data to stakeholders.
When creating a shareholder page, it is essential to include all relevant data stakeholders might need, like particulars on meetings and voting. The page should be easy to navigate, with clear headings and subheadings. The content should be presented in a clear and concise manner as well.
Consider some of these must-have elements on your website’s shareholder page:
1. Shareholder information
Present details about your stockholder base on your shareholder page, namely, the number of shareholders, types of shares, and any notable institutional investors. You should also highlight any recent changes in ownership, such as insider buying or selling.
2. Dividend information
Obviously, shareholders often invest in companies for their dividends. Therefore, it is essential to provide clear and up-to-date figures about your dividends, along with the amount, frequency, and any changes in the dividend policy.
3. Shareholder meetings
Your annual general meetings with shareholders discuss your business performance, elect board members, and vote on important issues. So, furnish inputs about your upcoming AGM and special meetings here, including the date, time, and location, as well as how to register and vote.
A shareholder page sets out details for AGMS and other meetings.
4. Shareholder services
Lay out details on any shareholder services you offer, such as direct stock purchase plans or dividend reinvestment plans. You could also point out communication preferences here and have downloadable forms, so they can receive all security holder communications electronically. Don't forget to post contact info of your investor relations department as well, so stakeholders can get in touch with any questions or concerns.
5. Shareholder resources
Prepare additional resources to help shareholders better understand your company's operations and performance. This could have links to research reports, analyst opinions, and other relevant communication. Better yet, arrange for email alert forms on this page, so they can subscribe to your latest news.
6. Corporate governance
Shareholders are increasingly interested in the governance practices of companies they invest in. Your shareholder page should allow for description about your governance structure, board composition, executive compensation, and any policies to promote transparency.
7. Welcome video
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a video of your CEO on your shareholder page? A short message to welcome them would be a great feature to highlight on this page. Your video could also be a brief update or your investment proposition presented by none other than your top executive.
A shareholder page is a great place to post a welcome video.
