Getting Leads For Your Website
A business, no matter how large or small, local, nationwide or global will not be complete without an good website. Millions of people all over the world use the internet every minute,everyday, 365 days a year and so what better way is there to promote your business?
The downside? However, is if nobody visits your website, it will not serve its purpose – which is to inform people about your company, brand, product or service.
On the other hand, if there are a lot of visitors on your website but nobody is enticed to buy your products or your services that your company offers, then the website will still be useless.
The key ingredient to a successful website is getting targeted traffic. The purpose of leads is to guide the customers and prospective clients to your website.
Here are some tips on how you can get targeted traffic to your website:
1. Review the design and content of your website. Once people are led to your website, then the next thing that you need to do is keep them there.
– Make sure that the site tells people about the products and services that your company offers. Give them benefits and not useless info.
– The web site itself should be user-friendly. A visitor will be annoyed and will browse away from your company’s website if it has a lot of useless irrelevant information and the links are not organized.
– More importantly, the website should be visually pleasing with rich HD images and have eye-catching graphics, helpful articles and easy-to-follow links.
2. Conduct a study of your target market. Learn about their demographics, their age and social group and location. If your customer base is mostly teens, check out their online forums to find out about their likes and dislikes, and their opinions. Don’t assume, research it.
If most of your prospective customers are regulars of this kind of websites, you may actually join their online forums in groups like n Facebook and give out your opinions but do not directly advertise. Nobody likes spammy help.
What you can do instead is give your e-mail address and other contact information while posting on such forums.
You can also contact the administrators of the groups and ask them about your advertising options.
3. Build a mailing list to make your advertising campaign more effective.
You may employ paid and unpaid methods when building your list.
With the unpaid method, you are making an effort to convince people to give out their e-mail address. These are the most valuable leads since they have an interest in you.
Here, you would create a solid mailing list to make up your customer base because when people volunteer information, it only means that they are interested with your company.
On the other hand, there is a “paid” method of building your mailing list. With this, you actually shell out advertising money for your products to be promoted on popular web sites.
There are also “partner” web sites that would let you advertise for free, in return for a service or product that your company may provide. This is how affiliations are built towards a mutual, beneficial gain.
You may also convince your current customers to refer your company and we site to their friends and relatives to increase your mailing list.
Follow these steps and you will be able to promote your business, find local and national customers and help your company grow through targeted advertising online.
