3 Ways To Increase Your Sales TODAY!
If money was of no concern and you could drop everything right now and just go… what would you do? Would you travel the world? Maybe take a nice vacation on a warm, sunny beach? Or maybe you would take the time to spread some holiday joy to those who are less fortunate than you.
Maybe you wouldn’t do any of that stuff, maybe instead you would want to take a few days away from your business to recharge, to think how you can remodel, grow or market your business in the coming year.
What do you REALLY want, right now? We all want something, it’s human nature – no matter how much we have, we always want more.
Take me for example, I have been under the weather and bedridden for the last 48 hours – so what I REALLY want, right now – is to feel better lol. But aside from an increase in my personal health, what I also REALLY want right now is to help 3 more businesses increase their sales and revenue by the end of 2017. With only 12 days left before we come into 2018 – that is a mighty steep goal to have. Can I achieve it? I certainly can!
But I’m just a web designer, so how can I help people increase their sales and revenue? That’s easy, I’ve thrown out the numbers before in a previous post. We live in the age of information, the age of technology — if you’re not online, you’re already long forgotten. First impressions mean everything these days — if your website is outdated or just plain ugly — would-be clients are not even considering you!
Here are 3 things I can do for your business TODAY that will increase your sales:
1) Create an Easy-to-Navigate Website
People love pretty colors, they love things that please the eye. They also love getting right to the point. If your website is in shambles, or information is hard to find — you’ve already lost that potential client. You’ve got less than 5 seconds to hook your clients in, they want to know and they want to know NOW! If they have to search your site to find what they are looking for, you’ll lose that client to someone else who has said information readily available and easy to find.
2) Improve Your SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
It doesn’t matter how wonderful your site is if no one can find it – you’re dead in the water. Keeping up with ever-changing algorithms on today’s search engines is tedious and it can also be really confusing if you don’t know what you’re doing. You can actually make things worse instead of better. According to Moz, Google changes its search algorithms 500 to 600 times a year! So you’ll want to constantly update your SEO, if not every few weeks, at least once a month. Having an SEO expert take care of that for you can also increase your sales.
3) Improve Your Social Media Presence
If you’re not already on social media, you should be! More and more businesses are generating leads and sales through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Depending on your industry – you may even want to consider LinkedIn and YouTube. Creating posts, sharing them and getting people to interact with your business is crucial — but you cannot rely strictly on social media either. Your business needs a home, a stand-alone website, social media platforms should be used as an extension of that home.
This is where I come in… I can help you with all of these points to increase your sales and revenue so that one day you can take a few days to do something you really want (like take that vacation). In our ever-changing world, you need to move with the tide or prepare to drown. Contact me today and let me show you how I can help you improve your business.
