Selling mobile sites [cool report]

20 replies
I just made this report last night. I will be calling up more business owners and telling them that I just emailed them some useful information regarding their business.

I would like to get some feedback on this before I start using this:
Mobile website report

*This report is like a presell to business owners, where I am getting them to understand the value of having a mobile site.

Also, let me know what you think of this video:

    I saw the video for Google Ads which is interesting, but when I read some more it's a brief couple of paragraphs. Is that the report?

    Thanks

      The full report is the link at the bottom that says "Continue reading here" and takes you to another page with mobile content. I think it gets to the point of what your trying to achieve, but I would also add your phone number at the end so the client doesn't have to search for it. They may want to contact you right away after reading (if its not in your signature).

      I would also give them a call immediately once it was sent out. Good work.

    For me this 'report' does not really grab my attention if I were a business owner. The very first headline should be something that immediately pulls the reader in. "Upgrading Your Business With Smart Phones" is a very weak headline in that it does NOT include any benefit of having a mobile site or any disadvantage of not having a mobile site. A good headline should focus on the main advantage, disadvantage, or both and should really hit them hard and make them want to continue reading on.

    I also think the video is a little cheesy if you are trying to present yourself as a professional business. Also the design of the webpage is far too simple. Remember you are trying to sell someone web design - if they see this page they are not going to be too confident in your web design skills. First impressions count massively. If you were a professional suit salesmen would you turn up to work in shorts and a t-shirt?

    I like the comparison of the regular and mobile sites together, personally I would put them side by side and then beneath I would use a list of bullet points that explain the advantages of having the mobile optimized website available for mobile users.

      I agree with TJ here. I wouldn't think it to be very professional or positive to show this to a business owner.

        No worries I am not showing that video to business owners, for I just wanted some opinions on it.

        To me though its unprofessional the information he's presenting is right on.

    the information on your video is fine its just the image you portray is not a business friendly one, so I say keep the info change the image of your self to a more professional one (not a suit and tie ) and you should be good to go

    The points in the video are all very good. I think the presentation style is what people are discussing.

    The video content and message itself is great. A majority of business owners would not take serious a guy with a big orange cap on sideways.

    But having said that it would depend on your target market as well. There are markets that wear big orange sideways caps.

    :-)

      Yes, the video content's OK, it's the presentation that's a bit too wacky, IMHO.

      I think you need to be taken seriously and they might think that you're the guy in the hat!

      ( are you?)

        Content is decent. Presentation style...well maybe in the US but here in Oz, I doubt you'd get many leads with the style of the vid.

        You can be quirky, fun yet still be professional. As an example Epipheo Studios creates vids that are educational, fun and professional. Not that I'd expect vids like those, but I merely point out the style of their vids.

        I note, that you have already changed your headline to state what they will get from your service. This is good.

        Also, the vid makes an assumption that your audience knows about and uses GA. From the start, I thought the vid was talking to biz owners who want a mobile site etc.

        Ps. I'm a n00b in Warrior Forum so take my comment with a pinch of salt.

    30 year old man in a cap turned sideways, t-shirt, graffiti...when talking about serious money from a serious client, what's not to love about this video? if you want to sell to skateboard shops or hip hoppers, this video is perfect. Honestly, it won't work for the majority. Hopefully you will be the voice behind why should they buy from you. The video should be more professional that's more pleasant to view. I really felt that the guy had a good message, very true, and I think other than the graffiti, his special effects were great. I believe he just missed an important mark; business owners don't want missed marks, they want information and inspiration. Here is a better video on YouTube that you could probably use - . take care of yourself and great luck

      Hah, I've seen this video before. I'm happy to know they made a clean version, the last one had a very harsh way of explaining what happens to you on Mt. Everest.

    I agree the message is decent, but that is about it!

    @InternetJon. yeah, I know right. I had to be careful what I shared. It's funny how that one four letter word can be so effective as to keep people from watching the rest of the video or wanting your services.
