The potential of earning online and the huge possibility of the advancement of our business has never been made easier with the help of the World Wide Web. The traditional business of having to setup an actual store, investing on the materials, paying for tax etc… is now almost obsolete as investors are looking the new wave of making business which is done online. This is truly a fact that no one can refute!
With all the possibilities that the World Wide Web bought us, it can’t be helped that someone would actually take advantage of it. It’s common now a days for someone to be scammed while doing transactions online as the website they’re transacting with is fraudulent. This has been a very alarming news especially to us netizens as our source of income normally comes from our business online. The World Wide Web’s loss of credibility can spell the lose of business to no business at all. Thinking about this, we should make sure that our website should look, feel or at least have a proof of credibility to the web users if we want their business. How do we make our site credible to their eyes…? Here are the tips.
Skeptics might even want to meet the owner first before doing the transaction just to prove that owner’s real. Something like this can only happen if you have your contact information on your website. Never underestimate this logic as there are literally thousands and millions of people that’s been scammed online. Although they enjoy doing business online due to the convenience, it can’t be helped that they might feel uneasy doing business with you or for anyone online for that matter due to their past experience of being scammed.
For those who do extensive background checks before doing any transactions, showing them your portfolio just might establish your credibility. Having your portfolio can give them a chance to look your previous works and perhaps even contact your previous clients just to be desperately sure that you’re really. Make sense? ( Of course is does!)
Something like this would establish that you the owner isn’t just a spam but someone’s in-fact managing the site personally.
Always remember that gaining someone’s trust is an essential step of making business. Without trust, you can be a hundred percent sure that no one’s going to take you seriously much less the product or services that you’re selling.
A website has different aspects that you should consider if you want to make it successful in-terms of marketing, earning or simply amusing your potential leads. Although experts have different emphasis on how to make your website successful, all of them would agree that creating a successful landing page is integral in attaining that success. That being said, let’s talk about what a landing page is, and its importance to you and your business.
A landing page is any website that you create for either running email marketing campaigns, organic search engine promotion, press deliverance, or PPC campaigns. Once visitors arrive on your website after clicking a particular link, traffic and revenue is generated, the first thing/page they’ll see after clicking the link is your landing page.
What is the purpose of having a landing page…?
One of Google’s metrics when measuring how important or significant your site is, is the “bounce back” rate of the web users. If there are web users coming in your site and leaving your site in just a matter of seconds or perhaps in a very short span of time, this goes against your site as Google’s Algorithm would see this as your site as lacking in good content. Now I’m pretty sure that you already know by now that with the current focus of the Panda and Penguin updates, the last thing you’d want is for your websites’ pages to be viewed as boring or lacking in content by Google. People are actually penalized by this.
PPC serves as an internet advertising model which assists in directing traffic – in terms of viewers and customers to your landing page – where advertisers will pay the publisher (in this case, YOU) when the ad/link is clicked. Advertisers are keen on selecting particular keywords –usually search engine optimized – which serve their area of interest.
The world we live in is highly competitive and to keep up with its pace, we have to adapt to the new and modified marketing strategies. How can a business flourish without its salesmen and advertising agencies? Running marketing campaigns via your own land page is a convenient way of making money. This provides you with a scope to create a market which caters to a particular audience – selling a particular product minus the additional links – which diverts the customer’s attention.
As I mentioned, after the users click your link, what’ll appear is your landing page right? Considering this, I’m sure that the users clicked your link because your link supposedly points to where they can get the information that they need. When the users are on your landing page, they use this as a point of reference to view even more links to different pages of your website, to view the different resources that you have which would answer their queries. That being said, it’s very important that you not only make your landing page look good, it should be organized in such a way that the information you’re offering to the users queries are easily accessible to them.
Having read these important factors are sure to have pointed out to you how important a landing page is. Never take this for granted and be sure to put a lot of thought in your landing page and make it as craftily as you can. Just a thought, if the customer service representatives are what represents a large company or corporation, then your landing page is what represents your entire website or your business for that matter. You wouldn’t want to be represented sloppily, wouldn’t you?
