Improve Your Website Conversions For Increased Sales

Website conversions has become a key topic for businesses. Competition is continually on the rise, and at a faster pace than ever. Converting website visitors to leads or sales has increasingly become a problem for many companies. Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability, and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website. Consider website conversions are a part of your strategy. Do you want to drive more traffic, or convert the organic traffic your website is already receiving from Google? Trying to gain more traffic is far more costly than making changes to your website to achieve the desired results. By using the results in Google Analytics and Google Search Console, it is possible to affect website conversion changes. It is not a matter of reporting or analysis. Instead, you can examine and interpret multiple data points to see what patterns and trends emerge. Ask yourself these basic questions: How much traffic am I getting to my website? How much of this traffic is free, paid, or from referral websites? What is my bounce rate for the website vs. from individual sources? What does the traffic [...]

Proven Ways To Increase Your Website Conversion

Let’s face it. Competition has been continually on the rise and at a fast pace. Converting website visitors to leads or sales has increasingly become a problem for many businesses. Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website. How about considering website conversion. The question I keep asking is if it is a matter of driving more traffic or a matter of converting the organic traffic your website is already receiving from Google? Trying to gain more traffic is far more costly than making changes to your website to achieve the desired results. Using the results in Google Analytics and Google Search Console it is possible to affect website conversion changes. It is not a matter of reporting or analysis, rather an interpretation of the multiple data points. What are the patterns and trends based on different time frames? We have to start with some basic questions. How much traffic are we getting to the website? How much of this traffic is free, paid or from referral websites? What is our bounce rate for the website vs. from individual [...]

Powerful Social Media Marketing Nurturing Gets You More Results

A noticeable change in social media marketing is the overuse of automation tools like Hootsuite or SocialOoomph. Businesses have turned social media automation into something that seems to resemble broadcast radio. Posting large volumes of tweets and updates happen fast with automation tools. Now imagine every business, regardless of their industry, doing the exact same thing. Automated postings have inundated social communities to a point that no one is listening anymore. Unfortunately, businesses have overused social media automation tools to be the end of their marketing efforts. They are seeking efficient (not necessarily effective) ways of getting their message out, in a fast manner, and do so at a low cost. Low cost to these businesses includes low to no labor. Of course, these quick tactics are not effective and do more harm than good. The question we have to ask ourselves is how effective is broadcasting your message in bulk? How effective is it to wait for people to come to you? With every business broadcasting to the social communities, how likely is it for someone to listen on the other end? It is more likely people have become numb to the broadcasts and do not even recognize there [...]

Digital Marketing Contract Your Business has With the Internet

A prospect recently asked what type of agreement our digital marketing agency uses for web marketing projects. My response was not expected in this phone conversation. I explained to the prospect our agreement with them was less of a concern. The real agreement they should be asking about is the one they have with the Internet. As you can imagine there was a pause in the conversation. What agreement with the Internet? The individual I was speaking to is a baby boomer like me. As we've learned about my generation, the perspective of web marketing is not what it should be for the present day. Rather their understanding relates better to traditional advertising channels like print, radio, and TV. Meaning the term marketing and advertising are identical to this generation. Traditional media is only about advertising. Marketing activities the Internet medium has opened up is not familiar to this generation. We do need to acknowledge, this generation has the authority and responsibility of marketing budgets. At the same time, we have a new marketing medium this generation does not understand well. Thus, they like to have short start and stop points in the form of campaigns. This generation has a [...]
