Physical evidence!

by 0 comments
Here's a little snippet that I wrote about using your website to portray an important part of marketing - physical evidence...

Customers are constantly looking for reassurance and this need is amplified online, in the scary, digital world of hackers and scammers. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways that you can show ‘physical evidence’, helping to put your customers at ease. As your website is the online representation of your business, high-quality, professional design is extremely important. Your site is usually a new customer’s first experience with your business, and so it’s imperative that you make a lasting impression of trust, integrity and credibility.

To help with this impression, your site can display such things as ‘behind the scenes’ photos or videos of your business, security icons, trade body memberships, awards, previous client lists, endorsements, testimonials, customer comments, guarantees, money back offers, independent reviews, and pictures of your business featured in physical news articles. Telephone conversations with customers can also add to the ‘physical evidence’ component, so make sure that your business can be contacted via phone.

Another vital element of your business website are photographs of your physical products, or shots of the various stages of your service being carried out in the real world. Too often I see sites that provide only text, assuming that the potential customer will know exactly what they are in for. It’s very important that you clearly portray what’s being offered in order to maximize your sales.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    In this online age, being a copywriter is fast becoming a viable means of earning an income, sometimes even from the comfort of your own home. It is one of the few industries today where further education (usually a tertiary qualification, such as a degree in journalism or marketing) is not the be all and end all of being hired as a copywriter, although it can be handy. More importantly however, is being a capable and creative writer; one who can demonstrate ability and the right attitude to prospective employers. Below are a few basic but helpful tips for any burgeoning copywriters out there.

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
