Hello

Just to introduce myself, my name is Litherland and ive just joined WF. Ive been advised i can potentially learn a lot whilst being a member here, i look forward to it.

A little about myself. I run a Will writing service throughout the UK. Recently turned to online marketing setting up a website to expand our brand and looking for the best tips on how to make the most of the world wide web.

Any tips or advice regarding our website please let me know as its brand news, very much appreciated

Look forward to reading your threads and providing my knowledge to users questions.

    Welcome on Board.

    You have been directed to a right forum. You can learn here a lot on how to promote your business on line. There are some very good articles on this forum, you can benefit yourself by reading them. Also keep reading the threads on this forum.

    One more thing that I emphasize is, always try to implement what you learn on your site and only then you will know what promotional methods work better for you.

    Good Luck with your project.

      Hi Litherland,

      Welcome to Warrior forum, and yes you are in the perfect place to learn a lot about internet marketing and business building. More important than that you will be making some friends on the way as you go and that in my opinion is a priceless asset.

      I have had a look at your site. Its very well done. I have a few thoughts here you may want to have a look at

      1) You have a good and essential service to sell, so its natural that you can benefit a lot by improving your internet presence. The site is simple, professional and does a good job of explaining what you are offering.

      2) The site needs to demonstrate your understanding of the "most desired response" from your customer. Don't go by that jargon, brought it in to sound like a big time marketing Guru . On a serious note you need to decide what is that one thing you want your visitor to do. Do you expect him to read your article and be happy, do you want him to click the buy button or may be you want him to contact you through the contact us form. Once you understand what that need is and what is that your customer wants, you have to take steps to make that easy for your customer. If I were you I would want my customer to get in touch with me. Once they get in touch with me I can understand their concerns better and provide an appropriate solution leading to sales. Having said that here are a few action points that I would look into in the website
      • I would have the contact us form built in to the landing page or home page above the fold. It could be in the center or it could be towards the right above the navigation. But I would have it above the fold so that the visitor has it right in front of his eyes and does not even need to scroll to reach out to me.
      • I would build up a mailing list from my website visitors. Pre-selling works wonders if done right. To do that you need to establish a rapport with the buyer by helping him out and connecting with him at a much deeper level than a web page can possibly do. Building a list would help me do that. Chances are I will be able to convert a visitor to a buyer in the 6th or 7th time I get in touch with him. This will also enable you to reach out to satisfied customers and ask them for referrals. I hope you see the power in it.
      • Would prefer left aligned text for a better look rather than the existing center aligned text on the web page.
      • Would remove the "FreeDigitalPhotos.net" caption from the footer as that kind of destroys the brand completely and buyers sometimes are fussy with such things. Its a matter of giving them enough confidence about your professional setup.
      Hope that helps

        Hi
        This is great information thank you and thank you for the website feedback, exactly what im after.

        Aim is for the customer to fill in the contact form. I dont want them to read the information and then go looking for a will, id really like them to read then contact me directly with the form. do you think the site calls this out to the customer?

        Left aligned the font on all the pages?
        i have the 'click here to contact us' at the customer eye line on the homepage on the banner, when you say above the fold do you mean above the brown banner?
        to use those images the terms are to put website on each page but i can put i on one and fade it? maybe not the homepage.

    Centered as opposed to left aligned text jumped out at me. Also make your call to action stand out from the rest of the page, it blends in to much. It should be fairly obvious what you want your customers to do next. The button in your case should flow with the design but stand as well.

    any thoughts on the font style and font size?

    should the landing page remain as it is or do i need the form somewhere? as i want the customer viewing the site to fill in he contact form, do i need bigger links?
