    • Salesmen vs. EducatorIn case you’ve been living under a rock here’s a news flash; mobile and the internet have changed thedynamics of the business world.For decades, marketers have used the “salesmen approach” to bait prospect using annoying, loud andflashy tactical marketing tools at trade shows, expositions, fairs, and on television, radio, via print,telephone, and more recently text and email. These marketers push out a message far and wide hopingthat it resonates with a few individuals. These are known as “outbound marketing methods” and arelosing their effective for two reasons:1) People are getting better at blocking out interruption-based marketing messages. Did you know, the average person is inundated with thousands of outbound marketing interruptions per day? That is why there is an entire industry dedicated to “un-marketing” with tools like caller ID, spam filtering, and on-demand TV and radio.2) The internet presents quick and easy ways for consumers to learn and shop. Instead of running to the store 30 minutes away, for example, a consumer can go to the Internet to research and purchase products or services.So, if consumers are going to the Internet to start their purchasing process. You need to take a differentapproach. Why not consider the “educator approach”. You need to provide relevant information peoplelook for, while being competitive at understanding the learning style of each prospect. This approach uses“inbound” marketing techniques to “get found” by the customers searching for your products and servicesonline.

    • Part III: Things To Keep In Mind During A Website Redesign1. Goal: Increase visitors and capture leads. By Rob, DIR IncorporatedYou want to create a website with impact for your business, not because the design is oldor because your boss thinks red might outperform blue. Therefore, focus on the resultsyou want. More visitors that you can capture and sooner or later turn into customers.Every decision you make should be focused on improving those goals.2. Protect the valuable parts. By Brian, BANG! Website DesignYou put a lot of time and capital resources into your existing website. And, overtime a lotof that stuff has helped you build-up online equity… (visibility content, ranked keywords,inbound links to pages, conversion tools, etc. ), therefore you need to ensure those thingsare protected and incorporated into the new website
    • 3. Upgrade your content. By Brian, BANG! WebsiteSure a great web design is nice, but it is content that drives traffic. And, while internetmarketing best practices or SEO techniques may change, you can still optimize yourcontent with a toos called InboundWriter which is designed to keep track of all the beststandards for online content effectiveness and provide you with immediaterecommendations to ensure youre achieving your online goals. If you want to learnmore check it out here. It is just $20.00 per month. That’s $65 less DIR Incorporated’shourly rate.4. Create an ongoing content building strategy. By Rob, DIR IncorporatedSimply put. The more content you have on your site, the greater the odds you willoutrank the competition. Now, you might be wondering … “where do I get ideas aboutwhat to write about?” We recommend you ask your Marketing Director what keywordsare getting the most attention on the web and focus on that, you can also research whatyour target prospects are talking about on Facebook and Twitter. If you do not have anin-house marketing person consider doing SEO yourself with a tools like this. For lessthan $40.00 per month.
    • 5. Consider A/B testing on landing pages. By Rob, DIROne of the key elements to capturing more leads and improve lead quality score is toconstantly improve the effectiveness of your conversion tools - this typically refers to yourlanding pages. Test difference messages. Keep the ones with the highest conversion ranks,until you find one that performs better. This should be a continual process.6. Build a site the team can manage. By Brian, BANG! WebsiteIf you build a completely static website and have to go to a developer or IT person eachand every time you want to set up a new landing page or to change an existing page, youmight be limiting your ability to quickly experiment and improve. We recommend you askfor a custom BANG! Website with a content management system that allows “html”embed, or a DIR Incorporated WordPress website that allows you to edit content andbuild landing pages without having to know coding.7. YES! You must have a blog, RSS, landing pages, and SEO. By Rob, DIR IncorporatedMost website developers will offer these items as options. As a marketer these are neveran option. A blog is a great way to create content on an consistent basis, RSS allows somecontent from your website to be automatically pushed out to other websites and people,landing pages are critical to actually get value out of your traffic. And SEO is not hard, andit really works. Need help see #4.
    • 7. Metrics: # of visitors, # captures, #leads conversions. By Brian, BANG! WebsiteKeep your focus on the numbers. Your business website is a business tool and shoulddeliver business results. Leave the works of art to the graphic designers and webdesigners, focus on metrics. A pretty site is nice, if the metrics are prettier. Also, considervirality scores on Facebook insights on posts containing your website links. Consider agreat tools like Hubspot, Spectate, or Marketo to automation your marketing and trackreports.8. Word of Mouth helps speed-up sales and increase business. By Rob, DIRMake it easy for your customers to share testimonials and reviews. And, remember toincentivize referrals. A simple form requesting the name of three people who wouldbenefit from your product/service is just a start. Pay them for converted referrals andjackpot … instant salesforce.
