Pop-ups have earned a bad reputation in the last several years, but that doesn’t mean you should necessarily avoid using them
Come to think of it, why are website pop-ups still around, given the bad reputation they’re getting?
And why do some of the highest-authority, high-traffic sites continue to make use of pop-ups, if these are so bad for a website?
There’s one possible, logical reason why pop-ups aren’t dead: because they work.
If a website has an important story to tell it’s almost certainly going to need more than one page. In that case, we would send visitors to our other pages or offer them access external sites.
Since they both require website links, let’s look at the best ways to make our links more effective for site visitors.
Why would a not-for-profit need a sales funnel? It does not aim to sell, so what use is a sales funnel to it? Actually, there is much that not-for-profits can learn from for-profit organisations.
The application of the principles of a sales funnel, for instance, is something that has been proven to benefit not-for-profits in terms of improving their communications with their audience.
For many website users, site statistics have been an under-utilised tool. Used effectively, their visitor data could help them understand visitors better, build an online audience, and widen their customer base.
Just knowing a few simple things takes a lot of guesswork out of any marketing strategies or promotional plans anyone might have.
Google Analytics is one of the most powerful statistical tools a website developer or digital marketing professional can have in their arsenal. The range of data provided can be quite extensive. There are alternatives, but Google’s product is outstandingly good.
If you or your friends are in your 20s, 30s or 40s, it is fairly likely that Facebook is a social network that’s become fixed in your daily routine.
In fact, it could very well be the only platform that you turn to for sharing news, photos and videos about your day or your life in general.
Surveys are showing that Facebook’s core audience is people between their 20s and 40s. They most likely started using Facebook (which was still fresh and new) when they began adopting smartphones from 2007 onwards. They continued using the site, building a network of family and friends, and still remain avid users.
Does this mean that Facebook is stuck with a narrow circle of users and a limited future outlook?
The combination of mobile devices and advances in internet technology has given us a very effective way of making local searches.
Local search is where someone identifies a specific location and the search includes results for it and nearby places. Google and other search engines process geographical information to do this.
The most commonly searched information includes directions to a store or business, operating hours, services provided and which products are in stock.
For business operators the potential to attract new customers through local searches is too good to pass up. That could be in any geographic area, for instance, a major city or just one suburb. Or it might be a wider regional area like the Latrobe Valley, where I am based.
In this article I am going to show you how to improve local search results even if you don’t have website technical skills.
Social media is definitely a game changer. What used to be a simple means of staying connected with family and friends has become a powerful platform for a range of purposes.
For businesses that want to increase brand awareness, conduct reliable market studies, net in more customers, and achieve other important objectives, their presence in social media can be extremely valuable.
If you’re hoping to boost your business’s performance through your social media activities, you must keep in mind that not all practices are ideal. Aside from this, there are strategies that perform better than others and should be given more attention.
