By | May 23rd, 2016|Information about MARKETING and SOCIAL MEDIA, Information about WEBSITES, Worth Sharing|

An awesome landing page together with a ‘converting funnel’ is what gathers leads and turns them into customers. More customers mean more money. But there are a few things to do before your landing page starts generating customers and gets more conversions.

Let’s take this scenario: You decide your website needs a revamp (and maybe it does). It may be time to look at some of the designs that you are using. So, you hire a web designer, spend the next 3 months deliberating over the new website design and spend about $3000 when all is said and done. Then, you wait. New website, new business, increased traffic? […]
