In this day and age, people will research on the web before they buy anything. As a business owner, it is therefore very important to have a website where customers or potential customers can find out about the product or service you offer. Websites can be more than just a “customer attraction programme” and you can absolutely make your website a booking and buying engine for your business.
This entertaining and insightful episode with Shane Hodge and Jason Barnard offers incredible tips on how to effectively convert prospects into buyers on your website. From call-to-actions that actually work, to text and colour, to where in a page you should place customer reviews and testimonials, to the best way you can highlight features and benefits of the products and services you offer… and how to ensure your potential client understands at a glance “why they should buy from you”. Last (HUGE) point: when you are creating a website, think about who you are designing it for.
As always, the show ends with passing the baton… Shane delightfully passes the virtual baton to next week’s brilliant guest, Joseph S. Khan… with a song!
