Increase online sales with this
often overlooked tip
Let’s say you already have a website for your local business. And let’s also say you’re building a loyal audience. They love what you’re doing, and when they can, they stop in and buy from you. But maybe over on your website you’re hearing crickets instead of Ka-Ching! I’m gonna let you in on a little secret to help you increase online sales using something you already have.
Does your current traffic increase online sales?
Probably not. Because if it did, you probably wouldn’t be reading this. And since you’ve gone to all the trouble of designing and building a website…and since you’re paying to host your website…wouldn’t you love to get more sales from it?
Well, even if you’re paying somebody to get you tons more traffic…and even if it’s working, traffic isn’t necessarily the answer. If you don’t have a vital action for your visitors to take, what’s the use of having more visitors? So, the important first step for doing better with your website is to be sure you have something in place to help you build and maintain your audience.
And that’s where this overlooked tip comes in.
Somewhere in the very top of your website, you should have your phone number. In large font. Easy to see and easy to tap with your thumb.
Wow, is that complicated or what?!
It might seem like a tiny, dorky detail. But I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard a website owner ask, “What did you do? We’re getting more calls!” Imagine that. Putting a phone number where it’s super easy to see and click or tap…and getting a lot more calls as a result.
I told you it was a “little secret”.
OK, in order to increase your online sales, here’s your mission…
Go put your phone number up in the top corner of your website today. Not tomorrow. Today. So you can start getting more calls tomorrow. And I know you can sell your products, services, and information, so more calls means more sales. Right?!
Be sure to let me know how it worked out for you. Till next time…
