Internet Marketing Sales – Web Page Design Part One

OK, so you've decided to become an internet marketer and you want to start selling a product or a service on the internet. Great Move! It can be a very rewarding career, if you know what you're doing. On the other hand if you do not know what you're doing, it can become very frustrating and disappointing. The life blood of an internet marketer is his web site. It's something that you need to learn how to do, and do right. In this and the following articles I will attempt to teach you what you need to know.

Creating a web site for the sole purpose of selling a service or a product on the internet is not the same thing as creating a general web site, there's a little more involved to it than that. A general purpose web site is great for providing information, but it does nothing to sell a product. A selling or sales web page does more than just give information. Yes you do provide information, but you are also promoting yourself, your product and your company. The whole purpose of the web site is for it to act as your virtual salesperson. If the web site is good, people may even hang around long enough to read it. If the web site is bad they'll just click on to another site.

A good web site draws the reader in, compelling him or her to continue to read further. If it does not capture their imagination or their interest within the first three seconds of their landing on your web page, then you've lost them. Three seconds is approximately all the time you have to get their attention. Within that time frame they will decide whether or not to stay on your web page and continue to read. This is just sufficient time to read your Headline.

Your headline is the first thing that someone visiting your web site will see. If it does not do its job, it's also the last thing that a person visiting your web site will see. Believe it or not, your Headline will either make or break your website. Yes it really is that important. A mediocre headline will bring little to no results. Your headline must be great to exceptional if you want results. Even if you think you've written the greatest headline there is, do not take your own word for it. Write your headline, then write your opening introduction, then ask about ten friends and family members to read it and get their opinion.

The reason behind getting others to read your work is because you are biased and they are not. You want to believe that you work is good. If you can not get them to want to read further than your headline, it's a sure bet that nobody else will want to either. If that's the case, then re-write your headline, and present it to them again. Keep in mind that your headline should be related to your opening introduction. It's okay to stretch the truth a little, that's the art of advertising, just do not exaggerate it too much that it becomes unbelievable.

Be sure to read the next article in this series as I will be covering your web site opening introduction. Your headline needs to lead the reader by the hand making them desire to read more of your website. If you succeed to capture their imagination with your headline but lose them with your introduction, they'll still move on to another website. There are many parts of a selling website and I will go over each one taking a section at a time, you might wish to consider these articles as a mini-web site course.

Building SEO

I'm fairly new to blogging, I started at the end of October 2010 I believe. I started because because I wanted to promote the things I make but it has turned into something more than that, I find I really enjoy blogging. As a began this journey I started doing research on how best to promote and market. I have a bachelor's degree in marketing but I honestly do not know much about online marketing as I went to school 20 years ago. I keep reading about SEO, Search Engine Optimization. I had a general idea what it meant but I've been pretty foggy about the whole thing. I went to a sales and marketing conference yesterday and the meaning of SEO became clear to me so I thought I would share what I would find out in terms that would help people like me, who are not necessarily as intern savvy as a lot of people .

SEO is basically getting your name or your business's name on to the first page of search results when you do a search on Google and other search engines. The way you go about doing that is getting your name out as much as possible. For example, you have a blog or Etsy shop and you want people to find it when they search for your name or product, the way it will come up on the search engine is related to how much it is out on the internet. That's why you want to have a Facebook page, that gets your name out there, then when someone likes you it goes on their Facebook page, each time you SEO goes up a little bit. When you are on Twitter if people re-tweet your tweets or mention you, your SEO goes up a little. It's almost like building a pyramid. Something else I just read about is Google is now looking at how many links you get. So you will want to create content that people will want to link on their blogs or Facebook pages to raise your SEO. It does not happen immediately, I've noticed it takes around a month for Google to start finding you so do not give up if you do not see immediate results. I hope that helps, it helped me figure out how I want to get my name out there more and how I want to do that now that it's a little clearer for me.
