Getting visitors to your site should always be ranked as high in importance as the quality of the products and services you provide. This objective should go hand in hand with providing your customers the satisfaction they get in exchange for the money they have paid for them. Customer service should be as superb as well so that customers are provided with the same satisfaction.
One of the ways you can combine marketing and customer service is through opt-in marketing, and with an opt-in list you get the opportunity to introduce your site and products in an agreed-upon time frame. An opt-in marketing strategy is a marketing strategy that is actually low-cost and not time consuming, simply because you get the consent of your website visitors to subscribe to your emails, newsletters and other promotional materials such as catalogs and free promotions.
Opt-in marketing is a process
Since opt-in marketing is the process by which you send emails to your list of subscribers, these emails can include almost any content you wish to send to your subscribers as long as such content is in good taste, legal and useful to the subscribers. For this reason, it is therefore essential that you present your promotional items in a manner that will attract the interest of your subscribers to keep them wanting (craving?) for more; and the best way to do this is to provide fun, entertainment and informational – if not interesting – articles.
Well written article content that consists of helpful tips and useful information will be crucial in building your list as increased numbers of your website visitors will be enticed to subscribe to your list. When they read the samples of your website content, they will be intrigued as to what will come next and subscribing to your newsletter is one way for them to get a glimpse of what you have to offer next.
It is a known fact that many sites and companies have come to accept and, indeed, place a high value on the importance of articles as they also help in improved search engine optimization; and as more people head to the internet for their information needs, serving the right information to them via articles via your website will increase the flow of your website traffic. And with more traffic, the percentage of your sales will grow, which in many cases can be converted into more profit.
The rise in importance of well written, information-rich, keyword-packed articles for website content has certainly been noticed and encouraged by major search engines for over two decades, and this has led to a craving for quality content by all sectors of the Internet marketplace. Today, any content that can be described as interesting and/or compelling is placed very high on a website’s must-have list. This includes newsletters, ebooks, blog posts and any other article inclusive product; because these articles provide the information which are sought by many Internet users, and if your site has them, more people will visiting that site for information and research.
Reputation & credibility
It is also true that well-written articles would boost your sites reputation, and if they are filled with a lot of useful information you will be regarded as well-informed and an expert on the subjects you write about. Of course, your articles must be well researched so that Internet users who visit your website will trust you, and when you have gained their trust, they will always come to you for the information they need about the topic on which they view you as the expert.
As a matter of course you must write articles or commission them to be written on subjects that are closely connected with your type of business. So if you have a site dealing with matters of medicine or offering remedies for a certain disease, your articles must be about that disease and its potential cures. On the other hand, if you sell materials for home improvement you must write and publish articles with those themes. Most articles searched for are tips, guidelines, methods, manuals and such, but if you provide relevant articles to your customers and you gain their trust, they will always go to your site for help and advice, as well as for your products.
With the loyalty of these customers, they may subscribe to your opt-in list to receive all the information you have; and if you provide them with the answers for their needs, they will be happy to be receiving your emails, newsletters and other promotional materials to keep them well informed. Others may even forward your emails to other people when they find a certain article interesting.
You should provide links in your newsletter so that when other people read it and wish to read more, they can click on the link and go to your site. With the articles you’ve published to your site that are good, they may decide to sign up as well to your opt-in list. This will build your list and make it bigger, but make sure to keep your subscribers happy and interested in your newsletters and promotional materials.
Keep on posting and writing good articles for your site and newsletter, and if you have no interest in writing them, or if you just don’t have the time, there are many available, well experienced and knowledgeable writers available to help you compose interesting and compelling articles on the topic of your choice. This is an investment that will pay for itself in time.
