Generating New Customers Using the Internet


żby: Vlad Ehrsam

Businesses have caught on to the miracle of the Internet

and realize it can help them cultivate more business than

they ever dreamed. It does not matter if you are just

starting up or already have an established business, the

exposure that the Internet can provide is vital to telling

people about your amazing products and services. In these

times, you cannot afford NOT to have a website.

The worldwide web allows you to increase your visibility and

critique your advertising strategies.

Marketing is relatively inexpensive on the Internet and a

quality website allows prospects to learn about your

business and the services or goods that you are selling

before they make a buying decision. It does not matter

what genre you are operating within, the Internet can help

you boost sales and the bottom line.

Webmasters believe that every domain should have appealing

visual imagery. All of the pages need to be search engine

optimized and well written. A common format for web page

design is as follows:

Home Page: The Home Page is your 'sales letter', which is

your opportunity to impress potential customers. Inside the

content of this page, you need clear wordage that outlines

who, what, when, and how your business operates. As a sales

letter, the content must encourage the reader to continue

clicking to the closing sales line.

About Us: This page holds a generalized description of each

team member's skills and attributes. You should use this

page to stress the code of ethics your business operates

under. It should also contain a written guarantee for your

products or services.

Products or Services: Surfers can see all of the products

and services your company provides on this page. There are

sites that list prices here, but it may be better to simply

put a "Contact Us" link here if they want to know more

about the prices.

Contact: This page includes your business address, email,

and phone number. Include your business hours, especially

if you intend to work with customers that are on a different

time zone.

Reducing Cost:

If you do your marketing online, then you don't need to

worry about printing costs for things like brochures,

flyers, or any other printed material. One click should

give browsers access to all of the goodies your company has

to offer them. People are finding the web great for

shopping because it affords them the opportunity to

thoroughly research the products before making a purchase.

The people visiting your site are probably being directed

there by a search engine or even your URL, so you can be

reasonably certain that they are already interesting in

buying.

Advertisers save a lot of cash by using the web to make

and mail full-color catalogues. This frees up time to

make sure the site is up-to-date.

The Internet is a source of supplies and inventory. Just as

you can let your customers know about your goods and

services, you can readily locate sources for inventory,

supplies or services that help your business perform more

efficiently. It is easier to compare prices of your

ompetitors and research products. This is a huge savings to

you, and will translate into higher profits.
