20 Best Knowledge Base Examples In 2023

These knowledge base examples will hype you up to create a fantastic help and support section to ensure your customers get all the assistance they need (only a few clicks or searches away).

There’s no great business without offering even greater customer support.

Not all customers and users will go straight to emailing a business or starting a live chat. Many will first try to get the answer to their question by Googling it (because most prefer it this way).

And your knowledge base might just be the first hit. Not only will this be an SEO improvement, but you’re help pages can also have other valuable links and CTAs to products and services (to increase conversions).

Your Business Website Needs A Knowledge Base

Your customer service matters – BIG time. Period.

And if you don’t create an organized, well-structured (use sub-pages, categories, search bar (with recommendations, etc.)) and insightful knowledge base/help/support page, you’re screwed.

Okay, I overreacted.

But seriously, you need to offer all the must-needed support and help your existing and soon-to-be customers in every way possible.

The more comprehensive the knowledge base, the better. This doesn’t necessarily mean Wikipedia-style how-to articles – sometimes, quick answers are a lot better (unless it’s something super technical).

Create your knowledge base with quick solutions in mind. Ask yourself: “How can I (we) simplify this answer or tutorial.”

Why Will A Knowledge Base Benefit You

A knowledge base is all about the customer, right? Not really.

It’s a win-win situation that benefits both the customer and you, the business owner.

First, a knowledge base is available 24/7/365, while your support team may not be. This ensures that no matter when someone lands on it, all the help content is always available to them. Plus, it creates a faster resolution, which is a big plus in creating better customer service.

Second, instead of answering frequently asked questions, your support team can concentrate on helping solve complex tickets. (And you can even use a chatbot that uses knowledge base articles as a resource to sort basic queries.)

Third, SEO. Yes, a knowledge base can contribute to a better search engine optimized website – considerably! You can have 100s of articles, covering 100s of keywords, which means you’ll attract A LOT more organic traffic to your website.

Interestingly, the hero image collage section lacks text or a call-to-action button, showing you’re in the “Apple environment.”
