Studies have shown that from the time somebody opts in on your site and becomes a part of your subscriber list for the first time, an average of 9 months will lapse from that point to the moment when they raise their hand and say “I’m on your list and really interested in this.”
Hmmmm… why not focus on really selling your website much quicker than average? Adam Hommey, who is my guest on today’s show, can certainly help us on this one.
Adam is the man behind www.helpmywebsitesell.com which works primarily with helping small-mid sized companies launch their products and services, create campaigns, and do promotions. Adam also creates engagement sequences and follow up sequences for select clients who opt in and he helps them walk through re-engagement campaigns.
Adam stresses the importance of not just to grow your list but to nurture it. Listen in for more great ideas from the man!
Here are the highlights of my conversation with Adam:
Strategies to start selling on your website:
- Remember that if you have a business and you’ve established anything online, you are a global business.
Even if you’re looking to do business locally, your local customers are looking into the global space to find you.
- Have content on your webpages that are optimized around questions or inquiries the way people would type them.
- Find out where your customer is hanging out “technologically.”
It could be in various forms like podcasts, YouTube, or email or any social media platform. You also have to think about where they’re hanging out in their head.
- Find out their top questions.
These are things you wish that people already knew before they walked in the door or called you up on the phone. Think about the questions you wish they would ask. These are the “should ask” questions.
- Have fun with it!
- Get your customers emotionally attached to your brand.
Create a user experience that enables you to bond with upcoming customers to helm your message and your brand without complicating things. What can you do to create that bond?
Adam’s Major Takeaway:
Many of the barriers that online business have put between themselves and their prospects are those that they create. Look at the reasons why somebody would be interested in your stuff in the first place, regardless of what it is. People buy based on emotions and then justify the facts.
