So, what do you think? Are you getting the most your website could bring? Here are some questions to ask yourself (or your web designer or hosting company): 1. When is the last time you rewrote any of the copy or uploaded new content? 2. Have you maximized your pages for keywords for the search engines? 3.
Do you have an opt in box on every page? Is it working? 4. Are you tracking your web stats to see how many people are coming to which pages, staying for how long, leaving on what page, signing up for what? 5. Are you offering valuable resources, content, articles and links that your target market will come back to your site often for and/or forward to a friend? 6.
Are you paying more than $10/month for regular hosting? 7. Could you be having people sign up online to buy your products or services and aren't? 8. Are you as totally automated online as you could get to really maximize your time? 9. Do you understand all the capabilities a website could provide for you to save you time and make you more money with less work? 10.
Do you have a content editor on your site so you can change the text or add pages anytime you want (or outsource to an assistant, either way you could get it done right away)? Those are just a few questions I ask my clients when they meet with me regarding their websites.there is really so much more to cover and to know. But you may not be a website or internet marketing specialist. I'm certainly not either, but what I've learned over the last two years has catapulted my business into huge success and it's allowed me much more freedom in my life and business.
Would you like to be more automated in some of your processes in your business in order to give you more free time? Think of all the new clients you could get, relationships you could cultivate and overall more money you could make if you really updated and automated your website to make it work for you, not just sit there. So, ready to take action? You can do one of three things the way I see it: 1. Contact your current web designer/developer - ask them these questions which might also stem into more then figure out how to maximize your site. 2.
Hire a marketing Website consultation to get a better handle on where your site could be improved, how to get it there, who to contact to get it done and/or how to do it yourself to maximize your site, automate more in your business and make you more money! 3. Do nothing. Get the same results you've been getting and be content with it.
