How to Choose the Best Web Design Company

How to Choose the Best Web Design Company

One way to make sure that you get a web design that really reflects the personality of your business is to consider the company that will be creating the website for you.

I spent plenty of time researching companies before choosing one to create my website for me. I read reviews, visited their site, had them design a site that reflected what my business was all about, asked questions about their processes and their methods of design and then finally chose them based on price and speed.

It is easy to go with the cheapest company or the quickest but think about this. How much time will you save by choosing the cheapest company or the quickest and being able to provide exactly what you want on your site in terms of pages and content? Can they update your site themselves? Do they understand your industry and business like you do?

One last thing. What will happen if they get into a financial crunch? Will they take care of my site in case I have other needs? What if I need an urgent update? Will they manage that for me? Would they be able to give it to me in time? Will I be able to have it done myself? These are all important questions to ask and also very important.

There are many companies who will create your website for you. The one thing that I have discovered about web design companies is that they can’t take care of your site in case you need additional features. This means that you’ll have to take care of them. And if they’re spread out across the country then this can get pretty tiring.

On the other hand, one company that I’ve chosen to do some of my web design work for me is a freelancer that provides everything for free. I’ve worked with them before and they have this system where if you have a need for them to design something for you they’ll charge you a nominal fee for it. So you’ll know whether they’ll be able to handle your needs for your site in the long run.

It’s also important to consider your budget when choosing a company for your website. If you’re going to spend money on your site then you should make sure that you will get the best possible service or one that is going to deliver exactly what you want and what you are going to pay for.

One thing that I’ve discovered is that there is no substitute for experience. It’s like comparing building a house to learning to drive a car. If you are going to get a professional web design company to build your website then you have to make sure that they are experienced and that they’ll build what you want and deliver exactly what you want. You might be able to have someone design your site for you but you have to have faith in them to build what you want and to deliver what you are going to pay for.

Getting Website Traffic That Buys :GET YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE RIGHT

Getting Website Traffic That Buys :GET YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE RIGHT

If you don’t know what to do with your website traffic, you can waste your money. When you’re starting out, you might have a new website, a new marketing plan and a whole new set of questions. These are some of the many things that you’ll run into, when you start out.

You’ll also face some of these when you get to know your traffic, but you have to know yourself first and have to know where to direct your resources to ensure that you receive value – not just getting anything for the time that you spend.

The first thing is to figure out what your website visitors want.


What’s on your site? What do they want? What’s the next step to get that traffic, to get more people to check out your site. This is a critical phase, because you’ll need to know what people want, so you can focus on getting it… and then you’re going to give them what they want. Once you do this, you can work to convert them to customers.

How do you figure this out?
 First you need to make sure you have the information

they’relooking for.

Then the second thing you want to do is to figure out what it is that you really want that you’re giving away.
 You’re giving away something for free, you’re giving out a free report, a free download, a free e-book, and then you can work to give it to them over and over again so they’ll come back to your site more often.

What you’ll find is that if you give something away often enough, the people who come to your website will get the information they need and they’ll give you their contact information so you can send them emails and build relationships that will lead to future sales. What you’ll find is that the more you give away, and the more you give away frequently, the more you can make.

HOW TO SPICE UP YOUR VIDEOS-SIMPLE TIPS TO KNOW

HOW TO SPICE UP YOUR VIDEOS-SIMPLE TIPS TO KNOW

If a photos worth a thousand words, then how much more valuable is video? That’s the basis of video marketing, a forward-facing marketing strategy that integrates engaging video into your marketing campaigns.

And knowing how to spice up your videos is now as important as even making the video to start with.

Video is the future of the Internet and the future of your business. Video is the Internets answer to televisions answer to billboards. Television has given us The Brady Bunch, and The Flintstones; video has given us The Flintstones and The Big Bang Theory.

Video is the Internets answer to televisions answer to billboards. Video is everywhere, but not everyone has gotten on the bandwagon yet. Why are some sites better for marketing than others?

For one thing, the medium rewards good storytelling and creativity. If your website has a video, you can point to it and say, look! This site has a real person behind it, instead of a disembodied voice telling people how great they are. That can be much more compelling than:

Video is also much less expensive. That means you can afford to produce more of it, and more of it means more chance of being seen. Once you start producing videos, you can begin to realize your full marketing potential.

The other advantage of video is that it can be done consistently, and therefore can become part of your marketing routine. This allows you to remain at the top of your field, while consistently adding new skills to your arsenal. The more video you produce, the better your marketing results will become.

You don’t need to worry about having the perfect script, because even if your story is perfect, the recording will still be terrible. Ways to Record a Video:

1. Video on a camcorder. I’ve already mentioned this method. It can be done cheaply, easily and quickly gets results.

2. Video on a screen. This requires more skill and thought, but offers more freedom as well. It’s best to do a test run first though, to see how it feels to operate. If you’re used to talking onto a video screen, it’ll take a while to get used to talking over still images.

If you have the money, and a camcorder, you can hire someone to record your videos for you. Because you control the content, you can choose who speaks, and they can come off as you the best available selection.

3. There’s a third way. You can use a camcorder to record images and talk over them. While the words remain yours, and the images are not yours, the videos are yours. There’s no set path to follow, just go with your intuition. The resulting video will not have your voice in it. This is the most original way to record video.

Do It Yourself Video for Marketing 

1. Camcorders.

You can start recording yourself. You can choose to record in landscape or portrait, and in 1080i or 720p. I prefer 720p. With the new phones coming out soon you can upgrade to a higher resolution, and with the new phones coming soon, they should have better video camera technology.

You can also capture audio with a mic. You can choose to have the image fade out with the sound, or have it loops forever. There are a number of things you can do with camcorder videos.

2. Camtasia

This is a great tool to create video to teach. You can record it using your webcam or your cell phone. It will have you teaching people techniques that you have learned to get more traffic. You can also do screencasts which is exactly what it sounds like.

You will be showing people how to do certain tasks on your computer. Like going to a website, for example, you may want to show them how to go to that website, without actually having to use the website. Just by showing them the steps. These are great for people who don’t want to actually show themselves on camera.

3. Screencast.

With screencasts you can demonstrate your screenwriting software. It allows you to record what your screen is showing you. In the screencast you’re not seeing your face, but instead what your computer screen is showing you. 

You can choose the best parts of the screen and demonstrate how to do something. For example I have a site that allows you to get free information. And I allow people to input their email address and they can get a free report.

It’s a really valuable feature because people who would normally be spamming you with emails might be giving you valuable information. This is a great way to gain trust. These people know you value their input.

This is also a great way to increase traffic. You can do an instructional video and walk your viewers through how to do something.

There are other techniques you can use to make camcorder videos, but these are a few ways you can spice up your video. Try them out and you’ll be amazed at how your camcorder videos can change the way you do marketing.

Keyword Research and the New Media – A Key to Success

Keyword Research and the New Media – A Key to Success

Most people who get started with Internet Marketing start out doing keyword research and decide that’s it. The truth is the keyword research process can be performed quickly and efficiently and in many ways is the same as starting a business.

Yes, a business would need to raise funds to get started but it doesn’t cost a cent to get started with Internet Marketing, just a few hours of work and some creativity.

What I have done with my keyword research is divided the Internet into many sub-networks and then looked for keyword phrases that could be used to indicate content, expertise, product, service, opinion or some other factor that a potential customer might be looking for. I have put them into three groups of one each.



Group #1 is the best because it indicates that I want to sell these three things. 

Group #2 indicates that I want to offer this three thing

Group #3 indicates that I want to offer these three things to the customer. The third group would be used to indicate the value of a free offer that I am going to offer. For example, if I wanted to give away something to my visitors at no cost, I would put that in the third group and have that be a free offer.

Once I have these down I can choose to put any type of keywords I like into each group. I can also put lots of spaces or hyphens in between the groups. I can mix them up. What I will do is make sure that the phrase I am going to use is in both group #1 and #2.

I am trying to make sure that I have a high percentage chance of those three phrases that I am targeting to be chosen. I will also use the three phrases that I want them to take home on many times. For example, in the second group I would use the phrase “how to train your dog”. In group #3 I would use the phrase “how to train your dog to …” etc. The idea is to try to maximize my chance of a good hit.

Once I have this down I can also use the same process for many other sub-networks of the Internet. I have also used the same process for newspapers and magazines and Web sites and blogs and Web pages and videos and audio files and image files and other file types. 

All you do is start with a few keywords and see how many sub-networks your target audience has and how many potential keywords your target audience might use. After that, you will use your keyword research and put your main keyword in some as many places as possible.

ways to Get More Customers to Buy Your products

ways to Get More Customers to Buy Your products

 It is quite certain that if you’ve spent time learning about marketing analytics, you might be familiar with the term “funnels.” And ways to get more customers to buy your products and services .

What is Marketing Funnels?

Marketing funnels are tool that are useful in visualizing the path customers take from first finding out about your brand and to converting. Practically speaking, understanding funnel provides useful insight into the reasons some customers convert — and some hardly do.

 Some use the “awareness funnel”, others use the “consideration funnel”, and others the “purchase funnel”. The goal of each funnel is to direct traffic to the actual business. The purpose of the funnel is to collect information about customers, and to adjust the marketing funnel as appropriate to help lead traffic to the actual business. The purpose of the funnel is to guide customers through the funnel.

In the “awareness funnel”, the funnel starts with awareness, the funnel progresses to “awareness” with a focus on building a relationship with customers. The “awareness” stage is followed by “considered consideration”, and the “purchase” funnel. Each funnel can use any of the three stages.

In the “considered consideration” stage, the funnel’s goal is to get the customer to the actual business, so that sales can be made. This can start with getting the customer to become aware of the existence of the business.

The stage can include providing information about the business and value, and a focus on building a relationship with customers. It can end with receiving a decision from a customer about whether to buy the business. The “purchase” funnel can use the “decision” stage to direct customers to the actual business, and to the “retention” stage to get customers to become customers.

The “retention” stage will help guide customers to becoming customers. This can start with providing valuable information about the business and value, and finishing with providing the most important decision – about becoming customers. The “retention” stage may also include offering a free product to encourage customers to become customers.

In the “retention” stage, it can help guide customers to becoming customers if the funnel includes an “about us” stage. The “retention” stage can be a pre-sell or a follow-up.

In the “decision” stage, the funnel can include an “enquire about us” stage, a “ask for a quote” stage, and “commit to purchasing” as appropriate. The “decision” stage can include asking customers what they are looking for, giving them options, and directing them to the “order” stage. It can end with customers purchasing the business.

For example, a customer’s “request a quote” stage can contain an “ask for pricing” stage, and the “request a quote” stage can contain an “order” stage. Customers purchasing the business’s products can get more information and direction from the “enquire about us” stage, and can ultimately request additional information and direction from the “ask for a quote” stage.

The “enquire about us” stage can contain an “ask for details” stage, and the “ask for details” stage can contain an “order” stage. It can help customers find out more about the business, and it can help customers decide whether to purchase the business.

The “ask for a quote” stage can contain an “request details” stage, and the “request details” stage can contain an “order” stage. Customers purchasing the business’s products can choose to get more information about products offered, and it can help them to choose the products they want.

The “enquire about options” stage can contain an “ask for price quote” stage, and the “ask for price quote” stage can contain an “order” stage. It can help customers choose the options they want, and it can give them options they don’t know they wanted.

The “enquire about products” stage can contain an “ask for price quote” stage, and the “ask for price quote” stage can contain an “order” stage. It can help customers choose between different options they’re considering getting, and it can give them options they’re choosing not to get.

The “enquire about service” stage can contain an “ask for price quote” stage, and the “ask for price quote” stage can contain an “order” stage. It can give customers a clear list of services they’re going to get, and it can help them decide between different services they have.

The “ask for details” stage can contain an “ask for price quote” stage, and the “ask for price quote” stage can contain an “order” stage. It can give customers a full list of services they’re going to get, and it can help them to decide whether they’re going to get a full list of services they’re going to request, and what services they’re going to get.

It can help customers set up a quote request, and it can help them understand the cost of services and products. So I’m sure you see how this can be used in an effective manner to help customers.

Once you’re able to write a detailed order summary that includes product specifications, price, and options, you can then pass the order along to your sales team. The sales team will then work with a customer service representative to get the order filled.

You need to have a good relationship with your salespeople so they’re comfortable using your order summary. The sales representative needs to know how to handle the product order. The customer service representative needs to be confident enough in the services you provide to request a quote, and at the same time, have the confidence to follow through with the quote request.

Keep a good record of your conversations with your salespeople. If you can include a number of details that you want your customer to inquire about, you will help them with their decision making process. These details might include the features that they have requested, and the services they have selected.

Once you have your services, features, and prices, you can then move to the “ask for price quote” stage. As you begin the ask for price quote stage, keep in mind that all quotes should be in US dollars.

If you have a product with a conversion rate of 1%, you want to give your customers a price quote in US dollars. It’s also wise to quote your products in US dollars so that customers can easily convert your price into their own.

When a customer inquires about the price of your product, respond to the inquiry in a manner that is clear, concise, and professional. You want to be sure to answer the question in such a way that the customer knows that you’re ready to answer the question.

When responding to an ask for price quote stage, give the customer a detailed price quote. Make sure to use a conversion tracking script to allow you to easily track the conversion of your conversion rate.

You need to avoid getting caught up in the whole quoting process. You have other business to attend to so that you can continue to follow up with the customer. Once you’ve completed your responses, you can then start the ask for price quote stage.

If you’re not careful, the quoting process can become very time consuming. You may also become discouraged because you do not get quotes.

The ask for price stage is the stage where you’re able to provide your customer with a price that you’re comfortable with.

After you’ve completed your ask for price quote stage, it’s time to add any optional services that your customer requests. Again, you need to avoid getting caught up in the quote stage. You have other business to attend to so that you can continue to follow up with the customer. If you’re not careful, it can become very tedious.

The entire quote process can become very tedious. If you don’t finish the quote stage in time, your customer will simply leave.

Always remember to follow up with your customer after your initial quote stage. It’s important that you always follow up with your customer after you’ve provided them with the quote. These follow-up conversations are critical to the success of your online business. This is why it’s extremely important to include an optional 3rd party service with your customer order.
