Marketing, for me, is getting people interested in what you do and why they should do it too.  Being the marketing face means finding a way to empathize, entice and excite (in that order).

Emphasize Entice and Excite Your Web Usuers

Marketing, for me, is getting people interested in what you do and why they should do it too.  Being the marketing face means finding a way to empathize, entice and excite (in that order).


web courses visitors

Who are your customers/visitors? Now there are many ways to find this out with the web. One is to look at your analytics regularly. E.g. I know that you, yes you reading this, probably came from the United States via Stumble Upon or Twitter. Now, you like tech, you like finding new and esoteric websites and you have some time to kill. Thus, it is my job to find a way to intrigue you about what we do.

Other techniques are things like User Testing where I watch what you respond to on our website. You can essentially see what people like and by knowing your users more you can empathize better.


Use your social network! A great way to talk to people is through your network. Say you are a designer wanting more work then get Dribbling and be a Devian Artist to get people talking about your work. Then hit the business groups and talk to people who are bored with their logo and need something special. “I understand you need something to really give your business that spark, well I can do that!”

Say you sell power tools online, start thinking about what problems tradesman has. Do they need a way of getting that missing part quickly delivered to the site so they don`t miss their deadline? What id they are not sure about what type of screw to use will they need advice? They can`t afford a new drill so can they re-furbish their existing one?

ACTION: List your customers and then their needs and possible problems. Once you have your user personas then list how you can meet their needs. This list is then what you need to get implemented in your website. Start with the simple changes first!.

Find the buttons to press with people that makes them go “actually, yeah!”.

ACTION: Talk to your customers and find out what they want, what they expect from a website and the kind of solution that they want.

One successful marketing idea we had was to show old vs. new website. A lot of businesses owners have websites they are not happy with so we showed them how our courses help them take control of their site as well as vastly improve it! This worked so well because it was so visual and intrigued them they can improve their website now.

ACTION: Show them the benefits not the features of your product or service. The enticement comes from e.g. “wow that person smiling because they got the right power tool deliver direct the site in day so they can finish the job.” Using a before and after was a powerful tool for us, so why not your customers? Come up with ways in which you can show improve your customer’s life and visualize that for them.
