Email newsletter is truly an effective tool that you can use to gain success in your online business or website. It’s something that you can send through the internet without spending for postal charges. The problem is, are your respondents reading them? Your sweat and hard work will be put to waste if your newsletters will end up in the trash bin. Check out on these five helpful tips that will bring online success to your hands with the use of email newsletter.

Work on relevant contents that focus on customers

Remember that your newsletters are not for you; they’re for your targeted audience. Write something that is relevant and important to them like steps on how to deal with issues related to your products, developments for improvements and what’s in it for them. Compose your article like you’re the customer demanding for something he or she wants. Also include how others are taking advantage of the updates that you’re stating.

Idea-focused Email newsletter

Don’t include everything that you offer in one email. Consider that they can’t spend off their day reading your contents. Focus on one idea per newsletter. It should be clear, precise, and easy to understand. Include related and additional ideas in your next emails as well.

Be conversational with your respondents

You may have the urge to send formal email newsletters thinking you’re into business; this is wrong. Instead, talk to them like talking to a friend. It’s really more interesting and appealing if you’re reading something that does not fully rely on sentence structure or English 1 grammar. Keep your newsletter friendly, simple, and entertaining. Don’t send something that looks spammy as it will ruin the reputation of your online business.

Make it scannable and short

You only have one minute to convince your respondents to read your newsletter. Aside from having a catchy header, make sure it’s short and simple. An ideal article should have a maximum word count of 700 words. It should not be less than 500 words. Another point that you need to consider is that online readers scan an article before checking on it. It’s really important that they can scan your newsletter without encountering any difficulties.

It should be educational and promotional

The content of your email should be 80 percent educational and 20 percent promotional. Focusing on customer education is helpful, but it’s boring if you don’t include what customer will get out of it. Include promotions that you’re offering in relation to the facts that you’re presenting in your newsletter. This will get the interest of your reader, and your next newsletter will be welcomed and anticipated.

There are thousands of tools and approaches to use for online marketers. Like email newsletters, success can only be yours if you have the exact idea on how to use it. Don’t waste your time working on something that is bound to fail. Your time is precious so make sure that your online marketing approach is effective and beneficial as well.

How Customer Testimonials Can Help Your Website And Sales https://www.web3k.com.au/blog/customer-testimonials-help-sales/ Sun, 22 May 2016 21:05:43 +0000 http://www.web3k.com.au/?p=3846 People’s ways of shopping have changed a lot, probably due to their busy schedules that they no longer have time to visit the malls or stores to purchase what they want.

People’s ways of shopping have changed a lot, probably due to their busy schedules that they no longer have time to visit the malls or stores to purchase what they want. They find the convenience of buying their needs and wants online. This is when Customer Testimonials will work for an ecommerce website to gain sales.

Customers’ testimonials will help you build the credibility of your website. According to statistics, 70 percent of shoppers in the United States check on online reviews before deciding to make a purchase. The influence of adding Customer Testimonials on how the product is working for them is really strong. It is because your audience won’t be able to touch, feel, or try your goods. They rely on what others have to say about the product. You can only imagine how successful your website can be if you have positive testimonials from trusted customers.

People who are fond of buying online stuffs are also those who have bags of negative experiences, and are very difficult to convince. Good product description and photos will no longer work to attract and convince them to purchase your products. The thing is, they comprise majority of your prospected online purchasers. Letting them go means reduction of your revenue. This can be remedied by adding real testimonies for your products.

Though the use of customer testimonials is effective to gain success in your online store, there are also things that you need to consider. That is making sure everything is believable. There is no such thing as perfect product so make sure that your testimonials include pros and cons. It’s advised that you don’t make these testimonies for your website. It’s understandable that you want to take justice in your own hands, but that can mean failure. You can probably add a couple of your own product reviews and hire someone to do the rest. To make your reviews realistic, add photos, complete names, and addresses of the customers giving the feedback.

Customer Testimonials = Social Trust

Moreover, individuals tend to follow what others are doing. Sometimes, we trust what others are saying more than what our mind is telling us. Adding real Customer Testimonials in your website will definitely attract prospected buyers.

A lot of people spend some time flipping on pages online to check for attractive and believable product reviews. The normal thing that they do is to check on short, but catchy reviews. They can’t just spend the whole day reading them just to purchase a pair of shoes. The point here is, testimonials should be short, legit, and simple.

Make sure also that product reviews that are posted in your website manifest the products that you’re selling. Don’t overdo the product praising because if the customer are not getting what they expect from their purchase, they will no longer come back. What’s more scary is that they can influence other buyers not to buy what you’re selling. It’s true that you have the option to delete or edit product reviews on your website; however, one disappointed customer is still a loss in your business.

Alternative Domain Name Extensions To Consider https://www.web3k.com.au/blog/alternative-domain-name-extensions/ Sun, 15 May 2016 21:58:46 +0000 http://www.web3k.com.au/?p=3844 Creating your website needs a lot of considerations.

Creating your website needs a lot of considerations. One is securing your domain and Domain Name Extensions. How important really is having an Domain Name Extensions of your domain and what are the things that you need to consider?

Technically, different Domain Name Extensions have their corresponding meanings and usage:

• .com – is for commercial companies. This is the most popular extension domain • .net – is the second most popular and is used by webmasters • .info – this is for companies or websites that offer huge volume of information. An example is a university website. • .biz – is also used by commercial websites or companies.

All websites owners are aiming to get .com as their domain extension; however, it’s difficult to get the domain name that you want because usually it’s already in use. “.com” is the most popular extension of domains mainly because online visitors have the notion that sites using it are the most reliable. It’s also the main result when you search for websites online.

Domain extensions do not affect how the search engine sees your website. What it considers and evaluate are the contents of your site. Though search engine will be the one judging the value of your web page, your readers are responsible for increasing your traffic as well as your page rank. This means that choosing your domain extension should be based on how they think.

One concrete example is the popularity of .com and the bad reputation of .info. The first one is used by reliable and big websites, while the second is used by spammers. Needless to say, using .info will bring slimmer chances of visits to your web page compared to .com.

If you’re looking for another reliable domain name extension, you can use .net. It’s the second choice for webmasters who no longer have chances of getting their names in the .com community. It’s the second extension that has more clicks compared to the other choices.

Moreover, if the domain extension that you want it so no longer available, you can’t just back out and discontinue your intention of making your own website. There are three options that you can consider to address this issue.

Get another name

Though it’s really important to include the complete name of your business in your domain, you can change it to a similar one if your heart is really aching for a .com extension. This way, you will have your .com domain extension and still have the name of your company in your website.

Use other Domain Name Extensions

Though it’s tougher to promote a website with a less popular domain extension, it’s your second option. You can’t just stay in one corner and give up because you don’t have a choice. The internet provides a lot of options that you can use. Get a less popular extension and work on your contents to gain recognition in the search engines.

Be on the waiting list

If you have enough time to wait, you can be on the waiting list. Web hosting sites are even offering promotions for domain extensions that will be available soon.

Having your own website is really exciting. Don’t stress yourself too much on your domain extension. You can work on your contents first, and then it will give you good and similar results.

An Ecommerce Website is the most lucrative way of expanding your business if you know how to manage it. You just need to sell your product to interested clients any time of the day. Tough competition is always there, so you need to compete with other Ecommerce Website as well. Thus, there are ten things that you need to consider for the success of your virtual shop.

Conduct a research for your market

Your customers’ demand should always come first. Know what they need and what can attract them. Visit the websites of your competitors to compare prices and campaigns. Your Ecommerce Website should have a nice and catchy design, too.

What is your target

Decide on which product you want to focus on your website. You also need to consider other related products your customers may want in relation to what you’re selling, so there’s no need to visit another website to purchase them. An example of this is, if you’re selling mobile phones, you can include phone accessories in your products. Another important thing is to keep your price competitive. Include the charge for delivery so your customers will have clear understanding of your pricing.

Use attractive and clear photos for your Ecommerce Website

Your customers won’t be able to touch or test your product so you need to make sure that they’re seeing what they will be purchasing through your photos. For house furnishings, getting the photograph with style along with other accessories will give them a better idea of how they’re going to use it. The picture of your product is your main convincing material to get sales.

Include PayPal in your payment options

PayPal is a great payment option; most people have a PayPal account and they also accept credit cards from non-PayPal customers. Giving your buyers a wider variety of payment options will increase your sales.

Holding promotions

A business will never be successful without attractive promotions that customers are waiting. Promotions can include discount on your products at a specific time of the year. This will attract new buyers and will make your regular customers come back.

Voucher promo through Facebook

Your promotion should include the convenience of entering a promo code in Facebook to activate the voucher or discount. This kind of promotion will surely reach your targeted audience and is also easy and convenient.

Promotion of new products

Always see to it that you have new products every now and then and that your customers will know. You can write an attractive article about launching new items in your shop. You can also include promotional pricing to add appeal to what you’re selling.

Give your home page a new look

The main page of your website is where your customers will check first. It’s essential that your home page is catchy so they will stay and check on your products. Refresh the look of your website, probably 3-4 times a year, to let the customers know that you’re products are changing and improving.

Send updates and promotional emails to your customers

Your customers are too busy to check on your website daily. It will help a lot if you can email them your new promotions and the availability of new products. Include an email sign up button in your Ecommerce Website.

Take advantage of social networking

Embark on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Pinterest to grow your followers. You can send product updates to them through your social network group. It’s easy and will give them access in minutes.

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a godly term to all online marketers. It’s the main key for their online and website success. However, you need to know how this strategy will work for you for you won’t succeed if you believe on some ideas that are actually not true. Let’s discuss about 10 SEO myths that will definitely affect your page rank.

Website optimisation is not needed to get good results for your website

Optimizing your web page is definitely the most effective way that will give you good results. Investing on SEO on a website is the smartest decision that an owner can make. It’s something that will give long and lasting beneficial effects. Once your website is indexed in the search engine through optimization, you will be shown in every search related to your targeted keywords.

Finding your website by Search Engines is natural. You don’t need to do anything

Due to millions of available websites, you need to make yours known and indexed by search engines. Achieving this needs a lot of effort and knowledge. SEO is a technique that uses your relevant keywords for search engine to identify your website and save it in the directory for visibility.

You can purchase the top rank in SERP and does not need SEO

The fact is, you can never purchase the future of your website. You can pay for your website to appear first on the search tab. However, that won’t last if you won’t continue paying. Indexing your website can be achieved by using helpful keywords or having a backlink from a website with high page rank. This is one of the biggest SEO myths

Interesting contents is all you need to be popular in the search engine

Informative and interesting contents will keep your visitor coming back. It’s also the reason why some websites will share your contents; thus, giving backlinks and drive traffic. However, the time and effort you spend working on your contents will go to waste if no visitors will find your website. Your contents will become beneficial if you’re indexed in the search engine through SEO.

The visibility of your website depends mainly on Meta tags

Meta tags used to work; however, due to spam boots used to share thousands of keywords at the same time, search engine has developed its intelligence to avoid being fooled by this trick. Websites can now be indexed and ranked based on intelligent contents and relevant keywords.

Optimized homepage is enough for search engine to see and index your website

Your homepage is the presentation of your website, but you need to consider that you can’t include all of your relevant contents on one page alone. Your sub-pages contain the information that you want to share. This is where you can use your relevant keywords for website visibility.

Ranking first in search engine guarantees success

Using relevant keywords or keyword phrases plays a major role in the success of your website. Having visible keywords is useless if those won’t direct users to your website. You also need to make sure that you have great and interesting contents that will hook the visitors once they stumbled on your website.

SERPs will give you the top rank

Keyword competition plays a big importance in this case. If you don’t have a lot of competitors, then this will work best for you. You need to work on SEO if your keywords are one of those that have millions of competitors on the net.

Link exchange is not beneficial to your website

This is both false and SEO myths. Link exchanges can be great when done right, however building links at a rapid rate, by buying into link exchanges or buildinglinks is a NO-NO as this is one way to get your site penalised. You just need to be choosy with the partnership. Get partner websites that are reliable and have high page rank.

You can be kicked out by competitors

No one can harm you if you’re doing the legit way of optimizing your website like white hat SEO. You can only be banned by the search engine if you’re doing some illegal ways to increase your PR.

These are the most common SEO myths that some internet marketers acknowledge. As doing business online comes with the toughest competitors, you need to be smart and knowledgeable to get the success that you need.

Website owners are too enthralled with promoting their contents through SEO and social media that they tend to forget the relevance of email marketing to their success. If you think that this kind of promotion is becoming extinct and is no longer lucrative, you’re wrong. It actually brings beneficial outcome to you and your online business, if you just know how to use it for your own advantage.

Here are the steps on how to get started with email marketing.

Identify strategies and needed information

You need to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve in, probably, a couple of years. This will help you visualize changes that you will encounter in the future so that you can provide solutions before they occur. You also need to evaluate the time that you need for your campaign; is it the class opening, the coming summer, or the holidays? Lastly, you need to know your budget for the campaign.

Choose the tools that you need for Email Marketing

Since you have identified what you need in step one, it’s time for you to evaluate the benefits and relevance of your approach. Considering what’s valuable for your campaign should come first. Then, you will consider the type of audience that you will be dealing with, before you will create your contents.

Evaluate your list

In this stage, you already have the list of your targeted audience and their interactions to your campaign. Create columns for those who are responding to your messages, those who are giving you permission to send them e-mails, and those who are uninterested. Obviously, you will focus on those who are giving positive feedback and response.

Formulate the content for your ad

Create the content and approach of ad, based on your list. Make sure that those are interesting and catchy so your messages won’t end up on their trash bin. You can include promotions and raffle draws that you’re website is hosting, too.

Validate and test your Email Marketing campaigns

Don’t get too excited with the benefits of your marketing. You need to make sure that it will serve its purpose, and that it will reach the targeted respondents the way you’re aiming. Test your contents to different browsers to make sure that important and relevant contents are visible. These include videos, images, and links.

Review and monitor

This is the phase when you will test your campaign with probably two different approaches. Determine which heading is getting more responses, and pay close attention to trends that will help you; who are responding to your marketing strategy, what are driving negative results, and what time or day you’re getting good results?

Email marketing is something that you can’t perfect overnight. You need to accept the fact that it needs time and patience, like any other campaigns. You don’t need to worry as your contents will get better each time you will use the campaign. Don’t wait for the perfect plan and approach. Start sending emails to your targeted audience to know how it will work, and to have the idea on what improvements you need to make for better results.

Website owners are battling on who’s the one dominating when it comes to driving traffic as well as reaching targeted audience for their benefits. The competition is really tough with thousands of websites arising every day. Aside from Search Engine Optimization, traffic can now be increased with the help of social media. However, don’t think that being visible is all that you need to get the success that you’re dreaming of. There are also important things that you need to know when you promote your web site using social media.

Option to Leave Comments

Including the “comments” option in your web page is like shooting two birds at the same time. It’s very important for visitors to leave their comments after reading an article or watching a video from a web page. They will feel that they’re being valued, and so, they keep on coming back. Don’t worry about bad or negative comments about your content. That will trigger debates within your visitors and will generate traffic since they will be coming back to check on other’s comments and opinions.

Increase your Reach

Though Facebook and Twitter are the most popular social media sites that are commonly used, don’t limit your options. There are thousands of similar networks that you can use. The vast the coverage of your promotion is, the more chances you will have of getting the traffic that you’re aiming.

Promote Engagement

People share their thoughts and opinions through social media. As a website owner, you need to understand what they want through the comments and suggestions that they’re giving. Apply everything that you learn from your audience to your website. It can be very helpful in formulating tactics that will make your audience stay with you.

Talk about Influential Links

As an old cliché goes “No man is an island”. This is very true with website promotions. You can work alone, but it makes a very big difference if you will use the influence of popular personalities or websites for your own advantage. An example of this is featuring one popular personality in your content. Don’t think that they don’t need promotion because they’re already getting a lot. Like you, they’re always hungry for recognition. There are chances that they will notice your post, and getting a reaction from them will bring their followers to your website.
