Leave out the hype.
Visitors don't care for it. They are looking to make an educated decision. They're thirsting for straightforwardness, facts, and transparency.
Make sure to address your dream clients. Make a point of addressing them in their language, literally. Then place your cards on the table openly and honestly and let them draw their conclusion.

"Decide the effect you want to produce in your reader." — Robert Collier

Know what you want website visitors to do before you start writing.
Seems like a no-brainer, doesn't it?
But in real-life content writing, this nugget of truth can quickly escape our grasp (believe me, I've been there!): you should know the purpose of your home page. Is your goal to acquire long-term clients and book solid, grow your list of blog subscribers (aka your marketing force), sell a specific service or package?

Your ideal copy starts with your client's point of view. If you're not crystal clear about the action you want your readers to take, how are they supposed to follow your call?

First, get clarity on what you want your audience to do. Then start building the path from Hi to Buy.

To help you determine your website goals, we've collected 15 possible actions you can invite website visitors to take, and we've gift-wrapped them for you. Follow the link in our bio to claim your worksheet AND receive upcoming goodies.

What is your website doing for your marketing?
❌Nothing much?
❌An online business card with crickets in the background?
❌Your clients find you elsewhere?

Your website can be so much more!
All through JULY, we're sharing website marketing essentials to help YOUR website evolve into a marketing monster. The good kind.

TIP NO. 16: Socialize!

Facebook, YouTube, Instagram ♥️, and Twitter are the popular kids when it comes to social media that can build up your website presence. Best of all, they are all free to set up and use. No matter where you share information about your business and website address, it will help extend your brand and name recognition. You don’t have to be a social media maven to realize: this is a free way, available at your fingertips, to spread the word and drive more consumers to your website, store, and business.

Hint: Smart interaction between your social accounts can be free or very affordable and saves you tons of time.
Set yourself up for success: focus on the channel your core audience favors, bang your drum and guide attention towards your website, where: tadaa! You're readers will find valuable information, inspiring content, tricks and tips to make their lives easier - or all of the above.

With that, our July of website marketing and management is over.
August, my favorite time of year is just around the corner. Will we be talking marketing? Yes!
Watch this space. 🙆😳🙏 #bizsmarts #bizmuses #websitemarketingtips

All through JULY, we're sharing website marketing essentials to help YOUR website evolve into a marketing monster. The good kind. 🦄 ❗️

TIP NO. 13: Take yourself seriously

Not a to-do today. Rather a to-think:
Almost everyone now uses the Internet to ‘check out’ a potential service provider. The vast majority of people will look for the provider’s website to make up their mind on whether to do business with them! That includes the people YOU market your services to. So, what is your website ‘telling’ them about your business?

Your website is a unique part of your marketing in one lifeblood respect: it alone has the power to either kill or supercharge the response rates of all your other marketing activities. So, wherever you’re actively connecting to your core audience, your dream clients, be aware that the people interested in what you offere will visit your website before deciding to contact you (or not!). The quality and content of your website has the power to encourage or roadblock people to trust you and perceive you as the grade-a professional you are.

If your marketing hasn’t generated the response rates you hoped for, remember, the people who ‘were’ going to contact you visited your website first. A professional looking and optimized website is VITAL for your business.

TIP NO. 12: email marketing

As entrepreneurs, we rely on our reach and the momentum we manage to create for our product or service.
Our brand is our reputation and we carry its name like a torch, trying to light fires that pose the perfect background for happy clients to tell tales of our general wonderfulness.

If you are working on the momentum part of things via an email list, you are certainly on the right track. Let’s talk about some potholes along that track:

Pop-up boxes on websites are extremely annoying and tend to generate low-quality subscribers.
Think about it.
People who happily click on pop-up boxes tend to click on LOTS of pop-up boxes. As a result, they get hundreds of newsletters sent to them and are unlikely to notice yours among those, let alone to ever click buy. They may be freebie hunters or have a nervous tick that has them click on everything that pops up, which renders their participation on your list worse than worthless because they muddy your numbers.

Here is a suggestion: If you are asking people to subscribe to your newsletter, offer them something of genuine value in return for joining your subscriber list. The Biz Muses, for example, send out a GDPR-compliance checklist, created by an actual lawyer who specializes in economic and labor law aka someone who knows what they’re doing (give some love to Paula!). We wanted to provide sth of genuine value, not another virtual dust-catcher.
Also, before subscribers sign up, we tell them exactly what they’re in for: monthly discount specials, an exclusive coffee hour webinar just for subscribers, freebies, beta-testing. That’s it.
I also advise that you only ask for people to give you their name and email address… not their whole life story. Every additional piece of information you ask for, will reduce your sign-up numbers.

TIP NO. 11: Walk an internet mile in your clients’ shoes

We love honest marketing that lets the world know who you are, what you stand for, and what you bring to the table.
And by the world we mean your world, and by that we mean your core audience, your dream clients, the people who inspire you to give it your best, every day.
If you don’t yet know who those people and businesses are, that’s step one of your marketing blueprint right there: Know your dream client.

If you have your dream client avatar all down and ready for business, this is your homework for today: Spend an hour a month (starting NOW) to browse, search, and window-shop like your dream clients would. What do they see? How easy do they find you? How does your online shop window compare to the other vendors on www-street? Take notes! We’ll be talking about steps to upgrade your shopfront and reach in the next days.

TIP NO. 10: Make your website your browser's home page.

Take a minute and set your website as your designated home page. Making your own website, blog, online profile, or landing page your home page means, plain and simple, it becomes the first thing you see every time you log onto the web.
This is your chance to stay on top of things without the hassle: You’ll notice if something is obviously wrong, if an update has fudged with your page’s look, if your new blog article is missing an image or (horror!) if your website is down.
You’ll minimize your response time to handle website draughts before they turn into website drama aka before your clients (and Google!) get wind of them.
Remember: Almost everything your clients know about you before they buy stems from your online presence. Typos happen to the best of us. Still, blatant errors that stay online too long have a way of gnawing away at your reputation.

Your Homework:
Check your competition’s website and blog. If you see any typos, errors, technical malfunction: How do they impact your view on the company behind the website? Let me know!

Website Marketing and Management

TIP NO. 9: Essentials to rock your social media presence.

Proofread – Unless you have some serious time turner magic working in your favor (in which case: PM me), it’s impossible to make a glowing first impression on social media if you skip the proofreading. Haste in general is your must-not-be-named enemy number one. Your second (third, ...) try is never 100% (hello, screenshots). Plus, edits after the fact won’t show up in post previews, ads, etc. To keep yourself from putting your foot in your mouth, proofread, proofread, then proofread again.

Stay Alert – Social media is the place where consumers voice their opinions about you, good and bad. Having alerts set up to notify you of mentions, comments, or messages can help you address situations before they get out of hand.
The opposite is just as true: Take the time to thank your raving fans for follows, mentions, reviews. This is your chance to forget all about the numbers and engage with actual people.

Establish a Social Media Policy – Your business profiles are not the only thing you’re sending out there.
Your employees, your business partners, anyone connected to your business also represent your brand, both in person and online. Having a social media policy means you stay on top of unwanted attention by making sure your tribe knows the rules and expectations for posting online.

TIP NO. 7: Google keeps evolving. So should you!

Google’s “Mobile First” Update evaluates and rates your pages based on their responsive design and reader-friendliness on mobile devices.

Not to scare you but a whopping 74% (and counting) of readers are “windowshopping” on their phone or tablet.
Google knows that, of course - those guys tend to be ahead of the curve, so it pays off to lend them an ear on such things.
What does that mean for your website? Make sure that on mobile devices, your 24/7 storefront window shows up: • completely
• pop-up free
• reader-friendly
• error-free
• with a clear path to your contact/buy buttons

We will talk more about rating GREAT on Google and how to test and upgrade your rating with steps so easy (and free) you’ll feel like it’s cheating during our FREE Coffee Hour Webinar this upcoming Friday. Link in bio!

TIP NO. 6: Pimp your email address.

Most hosting packages come with email storage and the tech magic to give you a more or less extensive @yourcomain.com email account.
The really clever packages sport catch-all functions and several email addresses within one inbox, so you can specify where your client found you without you asking: use [email protected] to collect your contact form messages, firstname.lastname@yourdomain.comas your professional address to converse with clients and [email protected] to rule all your social media accounts.

Consider individual folders to help you focus on relevant messages when you lack the time to go through all your mail.

Now, I know you love your Gmail account and it’s handy and you used it for everything. Consider switching to your domain email anyway. The air of professionalism you’ll convey will go a very long way, especially when your client “meets” you through referral or via your online presence (success!). If you were out there, searching for a translator, editor, copywriter, how excited would you be to work with glitterbambi92@gmail.com? (if this is YOUR email address, congrats. I’d be happy to chat over coffee, on me, anytime.) My point: • Make the most of your resources, including your website hosting package. • Tell it from the mountains that you are a professional and in it to win it. • Invest in your business: it inspires clients to invest (trust and money) as well.

Tough love? Yes. But we want to see you WIN!

Your homework: ✔️ View your online presence through your clients’ eyes, your existing and potential business partners. ✔️ Have a trusted colleague do the same. ✔️ Evaluate your areas of improvement and create a to-do list. ✔️ Tackle that list step by step, polishing your online persona to a shine.

Makes sense? Lets hear it! 👇💜

TIP NO. 5: Squeaky-clean tech.

Now, buckle up, because here are ten tech glitches to look out for:
1. 404 pages (page not existing/not available)
2. Broken links
3. Missing images/graphics
4. Underwhelming mobile performance/look: lack of responsiveness
5. “Dirty” source code
6. File names and attributes for images: keyword/LSI keyword
7. Missing SERP snippets in title and/or META description
8. Missing SSL certificate
9. Slow-loading page
10. Contact forms don’t go through

Your homework:
✔️ Open an incognito browser window and take your website for a test drive.
✔️ If you’re underwhelmed with one or more of the results, talk to your web designer.

TIP NO. 3: Keep it clean.

Happy readers are return readers are return clients (which is what we’re aiming for, by the way 😊). Your visitors are busy people. They want to get in, get the info they need, hopefully find you exactly the person they’ve been looking for, get their project on the road and get out.

What does that mean for your website?
Opt for flat structures and short, sweet paths to the “buy” button. Or the “hire me” button. Or whatever button on your page will make for that lovely cha-ching! sound in your register. 💰

Flat navigation structures mean every (!) sub page should be on your readers’ screen in three clicks or less. Less being better.

You might feel like a winding path will make for more substance and somehow proof you’re serious and professional. The thing is, your clients care about one thing, and one thing only. ▶️Can you do what they need done.

Saving them time = money and focusing on their needs over your need to gloat slash shine is key here.

Tough love? Yes. But we want to see you WIN!

Your homework:
✔️ click through your website and try to get to the buy! button in under three minutes, hitting all strategic key points along the path, the way an unsuspecting client would.
✔️ What’s your best time?
✔️ Share it!

Makes sense?

TIP NO. 3: Readability.

Happy readers are return readers (which is what you’re aiming for, FYI 😊). Think of guests coming to your real home. You cater to their needs, you do your best to make them feel comfortable and cherished.
Well, the same goes for your website visitors, aka your potential clients and business partners.
Here’s some things you can do to make them want to stay a bit longer.

1. Choose a font that’s easy to read.
2. Make your content 14-16px.
3. Contrast is key: black on white works best, choose your background and find colors accordingly. Avoid writing onto visuals (images, colorful graphics).
4. Keep your sentences short, sweet, and to the point.
5. Keep your paragraphs short (4 lines max).
6. Highlight key points by going bold rather than italic.

Your homework:
✔️ Give your website to 5 trusted entrepreneurs you know (not family members or SOs!) and ask for honest feedback regarding readability.
✔️ Ask them to look for keywords: your signature item/service, your contact details, testimonials, … ✔️ Optimize accordingly.

TIP NO. 2️⃣: Content above the fold 🔍

Make sure your visitors find exactly what they're looking for at VERY first glance.

No hassle, no scrolling, no reading your Why (sorry). Once your potential clients are certain they've come to the right place, THEN dazzle them with the amazing professional that is you. 💡Think of yourself as a shop owner: If you're selling books, your potential clients need to know they're in a bookstore as soon as they lay eyes on anything that is your marketing message out there: Your business cards, your SoMe profiles, and, of course, your website!

Your homework: ✔️ Find out what exactly your audience is looking for. ✔️ Make sure your key merchandise is displayed prominently and favorably. Shine a light on your best stuff. ✔️ Once you're potential clients are in the door, THEN it's time to dazzle them with your expertise and experience. ❓Makes sense?

In general, expanding your offerings is a smart move. If your existing customers love your existing products, why not give them more to love? In practice it can lead to problems that can damage your brand or even sink your business. Before you expand, here’s a few things to consider:
• Have you fully leveraged your existing offerings ? Unless you have the resources to go up against the giant retailers, you can’t win on breadth so it’s better to focus on expertise and quality. Are your existing offerings the absolute best they can be? Can you expand within your existing category so you’re the go-to?
• Have you expanded your customer base as far as it can go? It’s hard to keep plugging away, day-after-day to reach all those potential customers. But building a strong customer base of brand loyalists is essential before branching out and trying to build a new or overlapping one.
• Are you meeting the needs of your current customers? Getting a customer is the first step, keeping them is what ensures long-term success. Talk to those loyalists (or potential loyalists). What are you doing right? What could you be doing better? What else would they like you to offer them? • Do you have the resources to manage it all? New products or services often require entering into new supply chains, manufacturing and support. It also means more marketing, communications and customer support.
If you’ve answered yes to these questions, you’ve successfully built a successful core offering and customer base. Now how to expand in a way that builds your brand, not confusion (more on that in an upcoming post).

For many small businesses, it’s hard enough to find the time to do any marketing, much less track its success. But if you’re not tracking your efforts, you’re wasting precious time and money. We’ve put together a quick list of the bare-bones basics that every business should have in place.
First, establish a KPI (key performance indicator). What is the goal of this marketing piece? Is it to drive sales? Expand your mailing list? Get people to sign up for an event?
Next, set a goal attached to that KPI. Get specific about your goal. Is it to sell 10 items in a month? Gain 20 more names to your mailing list? It’s fine to start with an educated guess if you’re not sure what those numbers should be.
Finally, establish an attribution model. An attribution model how you know if an action came from this specific ad or email push or whatever the marketing efforts was. If it’s an online ad connected to an online sale or signup, the attribution can be straight forward: You can track most of these things through Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and Facebook Pixel. If the KPI or marketing is offline, such as placement in a local magazine or showing up at an event, then it might be more difficult. You can always narrow things down, like looking at the change in traffic from the region an ad was placed, or there was an uptick in sales or signups compared to times when you weren’t running any marketing efforts.

Putting together a clear articulation of your brand (your purpose, mission, etc) often isn’t considered an important task, especially for small companies, but it’s a critical foundational element for growth because it:
• Cuts down on the noise and chaos.It's easy to feel (and act) very reactionary if you don't have a clear sense of your brand, and what's right for it. Every great idea seems like something you should be doing and you're constantly changing courses. We call this playing the defense, not the offense. When you know your brand, you don't waste energy chasing down every idea and instead follow a clear path forward.
• Creates some much-needed separation between the owner/founder and the business. A small business can have the heart and soul of the founder in it, but if it stops there then it can never grow beyond one person’s reach and abilities. • Gets your brand noticed. Once you’re clear on what your brand stands for, you can then ensure that all your communications support this message creating clear and unique marketing that will stand out.
• Defines your path to growth. Again, when you’re clear on your mission and vision, you’ll not just have a better idea of what is brand-smart today, you’ll be able to see where you should be heading. *DM us your question and the answer could be our next post!

Your ‘brand’ is the heart of your business. It’s not one thing (like a logo or a tagline), it’s made up of a lot of the important aspects of your brand—your vision, your mission, your purpose, your character, your values. They’re the intangible, emotionally-driven aspects of your company.
Branding is how all these come to life in tangible elements like your logo or wordmark, colors, typography, photography, voice and other elements you use to create your marketing and communications.

With most brands, the answer is yes and yes. The relationship between the two is mutually beneficial. It is all about growing brand awareness, credibility, and increasing customer touch-points. Deciding to invest in a product takes time and consideration, even the small everyday items. Take toothpaste for example. You may see a new brand online, maybe you click on an ad or a read a post. Later you see it at a store where you pick it up and read the package. The next time you see it online you realize you’re running low so you decide to click and buy. Even little purchases like this take familiarity and confidence before we buy. Being in front of the customer in different places and spaces helps build, and eventually (hopefully) make the sale. Where you focus most of your efforts will vary at different stages of your business, but in the short-term, you should look at your available time and resources and focus on the sales channel where you can have the greatest, immediate impact (sales!). **DM us your question and the answer could be our next post!

So I was just listening to an amazing talk about Leadership from the Heart and was reminded that we are ALL UNIQUELY DIFFERENT and have our own way of leading, learning, encouraging, and growing.

In business we talk a lot about systems and simplifying the operations part of things. But when it comes to the HUMAN part of business, the relationship part we all have our own unique “stamp” to put on it. I know sometimes I see someone who is experiencing the success I am working towards and think “I should be more like ______"

BUT really what I need to be thinking is “What can I learn from _______, and How can I be more ME with what I have just learned?” …that Winnie the Pooh is so-o smart! #bizsmarts #heartleadership #winniethepooh

Many of the world's biggest companies didn't know their identities at day 1 - they had to take the 1st step to find out. #execute & learn/correct/evolve along the way #paulttranadvice #takeaction #incmagazine

Morning wisdom from Inc. - my fave business magazine. Most companies know where they want to do business; but equally important & heavily overlooked - do you know where NOT to do your business? #focus #resetblog
