Website Footers: Are They Necessary? | Corona, CA

When designing a website, we become obsessed with filling it with content. We want everything on our site so potential clients can find us on the road to success. But what about the footer? Did you design a great footer? Although this area of your website may not be the most eye-catching area of your site, your visitors look for the footer in search of important information. Here are some tips:

Simplicity is best. When dealing with lots of information, keep it easy for your visitors to find the information they need.

Link up. Two of the most important links on your website are the contact and about us sections. When visitors land on your webpage, direct them to these pages.

Contact information. Besides including “Contact Us” into your footer, add your contact information, including physical address, emails address and phone number.

Keep it important. Your information should be divided in columns or rows and arranged by relevant important information like contact information, social media, links, etc.

Copyright it. Including a copyright notice is extremely important to your security and can save you from facing many problems. Include the copyright symbol, name of the copyright owner, and the year it was created.

Call to action. Add the extra nudge your visitors need to sign up for newsletters, subscribe to blogs, or to send an email requesting a quote.

Contrast and readability. Your footer is typically small in size and much of your info is kept in that small block. Color, brightness and contrast should also be taken into consideration.

Graphics. Add logos or graphic elements to draw the eye but be careful not to overdo the small space with too many elements.

Buying What You’re Selling: How to Drive Traffic | Corona, CA

When trying to expand your business and get in front of a new customer base, you need to sit down and figure out a solid game plan. And in the day and age of online technology, a great place to start is to look at your online presence. Often times, there isn’t anything wrong with the website itself, but the fact that there is nothing driving your customers. So, what do you do to entice more traffic? It just takes a little bit of creativity:

Start a blog. A great way to grab the attention of your customers is by starting a blog, just make sure you keep content fresh and entertaining. Give them information they will not only find useful, but the more creative you are with its presentation, the more response you’ll receive.

Freebies. It is important to have a good reference when expanding your business. But there is one thing that is tough to resist – a free gift. Be sure this information or material you’re giving away is valuable, so people are more apt to talk about it to their friends.

Borrow an audience. People have found success getting their name out there by making cameos on other people’s sites. Approach those that are directly related to what you are doing – people usually appreciate that you admire them that much to ask.

Get your content everywhere. Social networks aren’t just for networking, they’re also an ideal place to post your content. Also, be sure to be generous and share other’s content as well. “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” isn’t just a phrase about itches.

Why Can’t I Keep My Website Visitor’s Attention? | Corona, CA

You’ve finally decided to invest in a website for your business. It is all designed to your specifications and has gone live. The problem is, attracting visitors to your website is one thing, but getting your visitors to stick around is another. You don’t only want visitors to take a look at your website and leave, you want your visitors to stick around and take a certain action. If you’ve noticed that your visitors are clicking that “back button” quite often, then maybe it’s time you realize there may be a problem with your website.  The follow list includes five reasons why your visitors may be leaving your website:

Poor first impression. Your homepage is essentially the face of your business to the online world. When designing your website, make sure your home page is attractive, provides useful information, and of course has eye pleasing graphics.

Difficult navigation. We have all had a tough time figuring out how to navigate through a poorly designed website – keep it simple and organized.

Pop-ups. When it comes to marketing your business, a website is key to generating leads, but forcing visitor information as they click on your site is off-putting. Set these pop-ups should be at an appropriate time.

Auto-play videos. If you do have a video on your site, give your visitors the freedom to press play and watch it on their own time.

Confusing content. The font, text color and background will affect how well your visitors will be able to read and retain the content on your website.

Do I Really Need a Landing Page? | Corona, CA

Creating a website can be a daunting task. There are just so many factors and terms that go into a website, it can become overwhelming. And instead of overwhelming you with a long cumbersome blog about every single piece, let’s focus on a single aspect that is very important to any marketing strategy – landing pages.

Some may think that a landing page is a homepage, but it isn’t. Your homepage is the beginning of your business, where you can introduce yourself and your services, a landing page is a diversion that will lead to potential sales bypassing the introduction completely. Here are some reasons why utilizing these pages is important:

Conversions. The entire point of having a website is to convert folks into sales. Landing pages direct visitors to the exact content you are focusing on, making it easier for them to want to buy.

Lead generation. Chances are, your homepage has a lot of content as you explain your services. Landing pages give a visitor direct contact with certain areas, making it easier to not only gather leads for further marketing purposes, but can collect demographic data to focus on in the future.

SEO value. Visitors aren’t exact apt to flip through page after page of content on a site. Having more simplistic, direct landing pages will make your ranking on search engines skyrocket.

Give offers a home. One of the best ways to create a successful business is to incentivize your clientele to use your services or buy your products. The problem is, finding a spot on your already busy website to advertise these offers. Landing pages are a direct line to said incentives.

Often times when people build a website they think it’s going to start making them money right away, but they don’t realize that their website needs traffic to create any sort of leads or revenue. Just because you build website, it doesn’t mean it will generate traffic right away. If your website is lacking traffic, that means you’re probably not taking some important steps in your websites design to get you noticed. The following lists what you need to be incorporating into your website to generate successful traffic flow:

Search Engine Optimization- Are you taking advantage of SEO? Most web traffic comes from search engines, your website must be optimized with certain keywords to make it on the top of search engines. Your keywords should target the audience you’re trying to attract to your site, think from your visitor’s point of view, what key words would they search to find your company?

Social Media- Now that Social Media has been taking over the internet world, it is often a great way for people to find information, even if they didn’t know they were looking for it. Having a stand-alone site is great but it must also be complimented with having a social media page, such as Facebook or Twitter. For instance, having a Facebook “Like” or “Share” button on your webpage allows for your visitors to “Like” or “Share” your company’s Facebook without having to navigate away from the site to do so. Also, if people enjoy your content on social media they will be like to visit your site more.

Clean Look- You don’t want your websites content to overwhelm your visitors, if there’s too much to read your visitors may become uninterested and leave your page.  You also want your webpage to be easy to navigate, if it’s difficult to find what your visitors are looking for, they will leave.

 Blogging- Having a blog for your website is very vital to have, it’s the perfect and easy way to continually add new content without disrupting or displacing other important content. The content you add in a blog is also very useful for SEO, a search engine will see this content and use it in search engine results. Blogs are also great for your visitor, your blog could be aimed towards helping the visitor with problems or even find solutions for certain subjects your company is knowledgeable about.
