build up your brand ambassadors and reward them - offering
complimentary product / services A – Keep the branding and styles
consistent with the experience
people will receive after the click. B – A strong value proposition that communicates immediately what you are offering and how it can benefit your visitor. C – Simple and easy to complete forms with a strong/descriptive call-to-action. D – No navigation! Those nasty page leaks have no business on a landing page. Set goals, so that your landing page has a purpose.
This helps you to measure the success of that goal (a conversion) and move into a revision (optimization) phase. 3. Analyze & Revise
Social media is like sex.
You can’t fake it. You can’t fake passion.
You can’t fake wanting
to engage with the public.
If you do, it will ultimately be an
unsatisfying experience for both.” KEVIN ANDERSON
FREELANCE JOURNALIST & FORMER BLOGS EDITOR FOR THE GUARDIAN Make the most important option the biggest. Reach people who are specifically searching for your information and products
Receive immediate and detailed feedback on performance of campaign
Reach thousands of potential customers within minutes Ideally the objective of the landing page is
to convert the visitor on that page BOTTOM LINE When PPC marketing is done right, it is profitable.
Highly profitable. BOTTOM LINE With the person siting next to you,
describe the picture below Ask yourself...
Is the keyword relevant to your website's content? Will searchers find what they are looking on your site when they search using these keywords? Will they be happy with what they find? Will this traffic result in financial rewards or other organizational goals? Search for the term/phrase in the major engines...
Understanding which websites already rank for your keyword gives you valuable insight into the competition, and also how hard it will be to rank for the given term. Are there search advertisements running along the top and right-hand side of the organic results? Typically, many search ads means a high value keyword, and multiple search ads above the organic results often means a highly lucrative and directly conversion-prone keyword. Buy a sample campaign for the keyword at Google AdWords and/or Bing Adcenter
If your website doesn't rank for the keyword, you can nonetheless buy "test" traffic to see how well it converts. In Google Adwords, choose "exact match" and point the traffic to the relevant page on your website. Track impressions and conversion rate over the course of at least 2-300 clicks. Using the data you’ve collected, determine the exact value of each keyword.
For example, if your search ad generated 5,000 impressions, of which 100 visitors have come to your site and 3 have converted for total profit (not revenue!) of $300, then a single visitor for that keyword is worth $3 to your business. Resources
