Lockdown Your Website and Lockup More Web Leads

(from Window & Door magazine's THE TALK)

Ben Landers, Blue Corona

As the CEO of a digital marketing company, I’m often asked, “what is the fastest way to generate more website traffic, leads and sales?” My typical response is, “you’re asking the wrong question.”

Marketing is an ongoing process. The best marketers in the world track everything as accurately as they possibly can; they design and execute tests and they use the results to guide the next test. While most campaigns take time and often produce results just barely good enough to justify another test, homeruns can and do occur. Let me give you an example.

Six Rules for Closing Sales with Email
By Welton Hong, Ring Ring Marketing

Even the most technophobic people in 2017 are generally comfortable with at least one technology: email. While it can be a challenge to help hardcore analog businesses to understand pay-per-click advertising and even basic search engine optimization, email is something everyone can handle—even for those on an AOL account.

Even so, some window and door companies invest little effort into even simple email marketing—a foundational aspect of any successful online marketing campaign. Many are wary because of their own experiences with inbox spam. No business wants to be seen as “pestering” its current or potential clientele.

However, there’s a way to go about email marketing that benefits both you and your customers. You want to get out your message to people who genuinely want your products. There are six steps to keep in mind when you use email to close the sale.
