Online Marketing

  • Written by News Company

Your website is the substance of your business online. This is the reason why you need to actively manage it and keep it crisp and slick to pull in paying customers.


Utilise these tips below or hire an online web design agency to make design improvements to turn your website into a selling machine.


  1. Stay ahead of the trend


To make your website sufficiently engaging, you need a website design that matches the latest consumer trends. Check the designs of your competitor's website, change the webpage hues, and make a design that is both elegant and fitting for your business.


  1. Compose and downsize


Online customers are occupied and eager. To convey the desired information to them, you need to keep things simple and easily digestible. Think minimalistic and don’t clutter too many elements into the one section.


  1. Page speed loading


To improve your website’s speed loading, try to dispose of irrelevant images and keep it as basic as possible. If your website is taking too long to load, then you’re losing valuable customers.


  1. Interactive and engaging


Ensure that your web pages have a good mix of text content, images and videos. Users need to be consuming a mixture of different web elements to fully engage and be sold what you have to offer.


  1. Search engine optimised


A website that doesn’t appear on Google might as well not be created at all! When first getting your website built, make sure that your web agency know what they are doing when it comes to search engine optimisation. Ensure that the website will be completely search engine friendly that comply with Google’s best search quality guidelines.


  1. Trust badges and social proofing


A well converting website is one that builds on customer confidence. Easy ways in which you can do this include the display of customer testimonials, case studies and logos of previous companies you’ve worked with.

Getting on the road for less with finance

Camping, caravanning, or just hitting the road in the RV, whatever it is you do to take advantage of the great outdoors, it’s not what you would call cheap. Sure you save by not paying for flights and fancy hotels but getting all that gear for weekend road trips to the mountains can be a costly business. Thankfully there’s one way you can get on the road for less – finance.   Why finance when I have savings? Maybe your dad always told you to pay cash up front for everything, but we’re betting he never had to empty the savings account to...
