Your Home Page - The Number One Goal for Success
by Stacey Morris
Copyright 2005

Your home page is almost always the first page your visitor
sees, so it needs to accomplish three things:

1) You need to make your page compelling enough so that
your visitor reads through at least to the end of the page.

2) You need to provide a solution to your ideal visitor's problem.
If you're a florist, and your visitor wants information on
English gardens of the 19th century, they want to know
immediately if you can help them. If they're not sure,
they'll go on to the next site.

3) You need to guide the visitor through the process.
That means provide copy that clearly and naturally leads
the reader from an explanation of the problem, to how you
solve it, to the best ways to contact you or get more
information. Your reader should be able to contact you in
multiple ways as well - phone numbers, email, fax if appropriate.

So what's the number one goal of a successful web site?

To get the visitor to take the next step--immediately.
That means deciding what you want them to do and
making it as easy as possible for them to do it.

Prospects can do one of four things:
1 Contact you
2 Sign up for something (giving you an email address)
3 Bu*y something
4 Leave your site

For visitors to contact you, you need to offer something
that they want. You need to address a problem that they
have, and offer a clear solution. Remember, prospects don't
care about what you do, they want to know how what you do
helps them specifically.

For visitors to sign up for something, say a special report
or an ezine, they need to believe you have valuable
information. You only have your home page to convey your
credibility and value. Again, emphasize what you offer, and
give away a lot of relevant information.

Selling products is essential for service sellers. While
signing up for your services is a big step for visitors,
buying a sample of what you offer is much easier. Someone
who has bought something from you in the past will be more
likely to bu*y again, as long as what you provide is of
extraordinary value. Develop an ebook, report, CD,
seminar-something tangible that conveys your services and
expertise in a bite-size way.

The common denominator in all these suggestions is to
provide 5-star value, and ultimately create raving fans.
One of the best books I've read on creating a very happy
clientele is Ken Blanchard's Raving Fans. People will pay
more for value than they will for services.

copywriter. And, you can learn some of what Brian knows

==> Tips & Tricks
=========================================

When drafting your e-zine/newsletter, ask yourself, "is this
newsletter doing what I want it to do?" Sure, the content may
be interesting and useful to your targeted market; but is the
newsletter converting your readers into customers or clients?
After all, you're in business and you need sales to stay in
business. When writing content for your newsletter, take the
opportunit*y to position yourself as the best choice in your
niche. Be subtle and let your readers come to see you as
an expert resource for advice, products and services.
--------------------------------------------------
To make your a*d copy more effective, try offering a f*ree
sample or a trial of your product at the end of the copy.
Chances are that if your copy doesn't appeal to the reader,
the offer of a pertinent freebie will.
--------------------------------------------------
Sometimes the best customer service is simply surprising
the customer. When customers order from you, surprise
them with an unannounced gift. The gift should have value
and should not be something you're giving to everyon*e who
visits your web site. This would also be a good time to offer
a follow-up product with special one-time pricing.
--------------------------------------------------
If your hard drive is filling up with files, you can recover
some disk space by clearing the browser cache. This will
also help avoid problems on certain Web pages. To clear
the files: go to Tools, select Internet Options, choose the
General tab, and click on Delete Files in the Temporary
Internet Files section.
