  3. 3. Know How to Push Their Buttons• We all know that content is king, but some people would rather watch videos and great photos on their monitor• The Social Web is obviously text-flooded nowadays, which is why you can try sailing on a different tide – visuals• Offer an escape from the usual social media activity of Retweets and Likes• Let people share their pictures easily, and they will share your site as well• Smartphones today also make photo-sharing instant, so capitalize on this Powered by www.simplify360.com

Establish An Easy-To-Use User Interface • Avoid flash-heavy landing pages; use a slider instead to showcase images • This will make the UI smoother and easy to navigate • We live in a world of instant gratification, where most users access your site using a smart phone • Remember that mobile websites are not a “one-size-fits-all” thing. • If you intend to make a mobile website, always ascertain that it will look good on all mobile platforms • It’s a must to maintain a streamlined look for both Android and iOS users • It wouldn’t hurt to offer users a free app, too!

It’s interactive, fun, and you can do it with your friends• With Codecademy’s initiative, everyone can learn the basics of coding• However, there are some gaps between marketers and developers in terms of engineering that has yet to be bridged• The architect (marketer) should know how the engineer (developer/designer) makes it work• And as we all know, the most successful social networks promote collaboration• Come up with a CTA on the landing page on how your social platform will encourage certain individuals to work on collaborative endeavours• Let people know that they are on the same page!

  6. 6. Free is The New Medium• Learn from Facebook’s landing page: “It’s free and always will be.”• The term “FREE” is a Call-To-Action per se• When people know something’s free, they’ll bite and try it• The challenge here is how you’ll make people stay on your site and keep them biting• Maintenance is always key, if you make your platform addictive enough then people will stay Powered by www.simplify360.com
