Christine’s First Page on Google Marketing Services

Discover how you can get on “First Page on Google” quickly.

 This is important to know because it is a MUST to be on “First page on Google” to attact new customers.

Or for that matter the first page on ANY search engine site, i.e. Bing, Yahoo, etc.

Is your website at this premium placement organically or by pay per click, neither or both? If not, consider this…

In a recent business study analyzed this November 2009, eight out of ten business owners created websites without a marketing direction or consultation.

Incredibly, the study goes on to show that website developers do not perform marketing analysis or even ask the client what specific markets they want to communicate to for lead generation purposes.

What happens in the 8 out of 10 cases is that graphic design is discussed, copy for general information is created and images are considered during the creation process.  Hours, days, weeks, months and even years are spent on these details but the sales focus is not included.

Lead generation sales tools are rarely a priority. As a matter of fact, most websigners have no clue how to get your site located on premium placements with Google or any other search engines.

The general website is made for the client to their liking and approval. The websites are not made for the prospect or the client. Is that how you created your website?

I write a song, paint a picture because I love it.  But most never know about it. This is the case of most websites. They don’t know how to find it and if they do see it, they may not like the subject for them or the right color. I made it for myself so I don’t care. Is that how you feel about your website? Or do you want the right message to market match that brings you new clients?

You may like looking at your website but do you find that you get much traffic from it? Does it bring you in qualified leads? If it’s not making sales for you then it’s not a marketing website and if you don’t want a marketing website than that’s your choice.

There are plenty of people, without a need for a business to make money. Even the richest people I know prefer to make money when they invest time and money into someting but some just do things for the shear pleasure of it. But a website???? That makes no sense.

If you want a website that brings in traffic even while you are sleeping and creates sales and profits for your business than I strongly urge you to hire an online marketing consultant that has a website development team behind them.

Make marketing your first priority in website development. Then add the pretty pictures and copy to it’s function and design.

It takes a team of technicians that knows what they are doing to create a home. You need a concrete layer, a mason, a framer, a roofer, an HVAC pro, etc… to make this home.

A website, in these modern times, is a crucially important marketing tool that you can consider your online business home. Don’t build, remodel or make improvements to it until you find a qualified marketing consultant to make that site ROCK with sales appeal.

That would be like building a home and not having a reason to live in it. What a waste that is.

Look at your website truthfully, with marketing intensive purposes.  Track the traffic and sales and make a new year’s goal to include “smart” marketing.

Being “first page on Google” is your business’s lifeline. It’s not a hobby anymore because the newspapers are going away, yellow pages are dwindling, too. Websites need to perform for sales reasons. Is yours?

Best to you!

How Important are Leads to Business Owners?

LeadzSmart Meeting Takes Serious Review

That headline, “how important are leads to business owners” has to be answered obviously with this word- CRUCIAL.

Leads are the lifeblood of any business.

The big questions in our “new economy” are how do we get qualified leads and at what cost?

To clarify even more you have to know how do you generate the lead and convert them effectively.

The first “LeadzSmart” education class addressed this lead generation issue head on.

Today (8.5.09) twenty-three people attended in Chandler at 7:30 a.m., armed with their marketing pieces on a quest to find better and proven ways to generate more leads. They came from Phoenix, Gilbert, Chandler and even Scottsdale because for them there just is no room for error especially when resources for the business owner are so very precious.

Dr. Ron Marek, facilitated the group, and threw at them hard hitting, thought provoking facts about what’s proven to work and what’s nice and fuzzy but not a big performer.

Everyone including me realized I had to clean out the clutter from my marketing messages. It was time to get down to the unique selling proposition with every prospect message I create and send out.

Next week the attendees and any new comers will be encouraged to face the same music with their marketing plans. Leads are not a dime a dozen and need to be cultivated and treated like gold. How well are you doing in that area? If you dare to know more, come and visit this LeadZSmart class next Wednesday.

I can definitely say, it’s worth my while. As a side note, I met a new business owner- Kathy Kelly. Kathy is a very cool artist and certified teacher with an up and coming Art Academy.

I find it especially nice to meet business owners that are artists, too.

Create a Class and See Who Comes

I love experts of all kinds, don’t you?

There is just so many interesting topics that leave me curious and wanting to know more and I bet I’m not alone.

You probably have a list of experts you like to listen to and so do your clients and prospects.

Learning something is helpful and can be shared. This is an opportunity to empower your clients and prospects with new cutting edge information while you gain new knowledge, too.

Just last weekend I created a class for two people I work with. One is a “master” gardner” the other is a naturopathic doctor.

The education class was held at a local library, so the cost was low, $10 for two hours. Because it was held at the library the validation was high. We focused the class on nutrition, from garden to table to body.

A few weeks before the class I sent out invites to the local media, more invitations went out to my peers in the area and a geographic email database was sent out by Dr. Ron (Marek).

People did come. Nice people, grateful for the information shared. The class was PACKED.

The gardner had leads, the naturopathic doctor added new clients to her business and since I hosted the event I also generated new leads as well.

Not only did we all gain leads, but we had our name in the media for free several times before the event. Total strangers, who had never heard about us before, are now familiar with what we do and so our service branding begins.

Now, over my 15+ years of public relations I have created and held hundreds of classes like this. I’ve never regretted one.

It has always produced win-win results and it doesn’t cost much to do.

Just remember to do it with authenticity. You’re doing this because you want to share VALUABLE information with your attendees.

And don’t forget to follow-up with anyone who comes to the class.

Have you been thinking about using ”class” marketing to generate more easy sales?

If you need help putting it together let me know. I know you can do this and make us all a little more informed. Thank goodness for experts!

Landing Pages Mega Affordable: They can be leased!

You wont’ believe what my partner, Ron Marek, just figured out. It happened just a few days ago.

We love lead generation and we have been working on perfecting Landing Pages.  

Well, I have some fantastic news for you. (more on that in a minute)

While talking to some of our valuable clients and prospects we kept hearing the same thing,

“Yes, I want a landing page …”
“I know I need a landing page …”

BUT … (and there always is a BUT), they’d say, “I can’t afford to pay $1,997.00 or more. I just don’t have it in my budget.”

So, I put on my thinking cap on last night and came up with the PERFECT solution to this problem.

You see being found on the Internet is CRITICAL to your business’s survival.

So, here is what Ron has come up with to help you out.

We will give you a FREE semi-custom Landing Page, complete with an Opt-in tool and an Autoresponder that automatically delivers your messages to your prospects.

You get all of that when you lease your Landing Page for just $97.00/mo.

Please contact us for all of the details. You must hurry though, because we can only so so much this week and will take on 5 new clients this week.

If you are the slightest bit interested in getting more steaming-hot leads for your business let us know. Then call me at 480-456-4700 RIGHT NOW while it still fresh in your mind and before the last slot is taken.

You can now get the total lead capture package for just $97/mo. Incredible!

Call me right away at 480-456-4700 or check us out on www.BushidoMarketing.com .

Happy to bring more business to YOU!
