You’re Blowing Your One Chance to Make a Great First Impression
Think about this: Is your website a Walmart greeter or a Nordstrom shoe salesperson?
Visual aspects may help you attract potential customers; however, you’re missing out on something that could make them stay.
It’s a terrible idea to think that all your website needs to do is to look good. It is crucial that you optimize it in such a way that it attracts potential clients, impresses them, and gives them a memorable experience.
Even if you have a nice-looking website now, if it’s not helping your business grow and make money, it’s no good.
Beyond a nice looking homepage, a website is the world’s window to your business. A great website should both be attractive and interactive. It should show your customers why they should choose you and place their trust in you.
At Fingerprint Marketing, we’re obsessed with making you look good online while creating a web presence that warms up your leads, entices users to visit sooner and more often, and to make it easy for customers to do business with you again and again.
We’re also experts at all of the confusing back-end stuff like SEO, responsive design, navigation, integration, and e-commerce (is your head exploding yet?)
Work with Fingerprint Marketing and you’ll have a website that you will be proud to show off – and one that will work for your business and make your life much easier.
Wondering how that’s possible? Here we go!
Cassopolis Secrets Revealed:
6 Things Every Great Website Needs To Have
We want your website to be beautiful on the outside and on the inside. We want to design a site for you that is truly your own… unique to you, just like your fingerprint. We believe that the perfect balance between creativity, psychology and innovation will enable your website to reach its maximum potential. No longer will your website be a cost center, rather it will become the main factor why your customers will come you.
Here’s how we do it (and let’s have a little fun along the way!)
Guilty! We Admit That We Killed That Ugly Website!
You’re Sexy, You Know It, We Know It and We Love It!
Branding & Appearance
Your website IS the fingerprint of your business. It is one of the easiest ways that your customers will find and learn about you. Hence, it should set you apart from others. It has to make a connection between you and your clients. It must clearly communicate your message in a way that is easy-to-understand and yet compels your visitors to take action. With your website, you are in control, if you’re convincing enough, you could practically make them do anything.
At Fingerprint Marketing, we mercilessly kill the boring stuff, bury the cookie-cutter crap, and burn the blah-blah. You need a website that is the perfect fingerprint match to you, your company, and your message… and that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
Get In, Get Out
People visit your website because they have a problem and they want it solved. You only have 8 seconds to convince them that what you offer is the answer to that problem. 8 seconds! That is all you have. Even a professional bank robber can’t get rich in such a short period of time.
You have so much to tell, and you need to do it fast! Your website must take your viewers hostage in very short order or they’ll escape and run right to your competitor.
We know how to capture them so they not only see you but they “feel” you… who you are, what you do, and most importantly, what you can do for them.
The Down & Dirty
Navigation & Load Time
Even if you’re the most highly skilled hitman on the planet and have tons of happy customers, they’ll stab you right in the back and hire the other guy if your website is slow or the navigation sucks.
All users hate having to stare at a blank loading web page. We all want what we want and we want to find it fast and easy. Look, there’s a ton of cat videos we wanna watch and if your website is keeping us from doing that, you’re going to jail!
Go Mobile or Go Home
How to Lose Half of What You Have
Any website not able to adapt to mobile users can be described with one word, “criminal.” In fact, 51% of people who are casing your joint are doing it from their smartphone or tablet…. Believe it or not, 51%, more than half and that number isn’t going to stop
growing anytime soon.
Worst part? The Big, Bad G will lower your ranking if your mobile site isn’t up to snuff. And trust us when we say that you don’t want to make an enemy of the Big, Bad G! That police force has all kinds of ways to incarcerate your virtual real estate.
(PS. We love you Google)
The geeks at Fingerprint Marketing will make your mobile site sing like a bird (those geeks, and we love them too, call this “responsive” and “optimized’ but we’re just gonna keep it real simple for now).
Sparkle Up that Website
Engagement and Content
We understand that looking amazing is the easiest way for your site to get noticed. But beyond that, how are you going to convince your audience to do three of the most critical things every business needs to earn from their customers- get noticed, liked and trusted?
Simple. Show them quality. Interesting stuff. Help them enjoy. Stuff with some sparkle. All of these can be packaged in something modern people would like to call “content.” You must also have top-notch sales copy – compelling copy that speaks to sell, not just tell. (Oh, and if you don’t know the difference between content and sales copy, don’t worry – that’s not a crime around here!)
For most business owners, creating content and copy is the harshest sentence that can be handed down. It’s pure torture to produce regular blogs, reports, videos, eBooks, social media posts, sales letters, ads, landing pages, and other compelling words that will wow the crowd and keep them engaged.
But here’s some really, really, good news and it might come as a surprise to you. There are good people in this world (some who work for Fingerprint!) that LOVE to create content. Yep, it’s true. They find it a delight to sit in a 6’ x 9’
cell room, with nothing but a computer and some caffeine and crank out content that looks and sounds like it came straight from YOU! How do they do that? I don’t know either And we don’t ask. We just keep them stocked with Starbucks credits and Mountain Dew and they just keep typing. Hey, it works.
The Getaway Car
Search Engine Optimization (Also known as telling search engines to show us to customers)
Imagine this: you’ve just succeeded with the greatest bank heist in history after years of planning. Jacked on adrenaline and carrying your big bags o’ cash, you run out the door to join your partner-in-crime who is waiting in the getaway car. You turn left. None. You look to the right. Hmmm. You don’t see that getaway car. Where could it be? You and your partner were so good in making sure that no one would find your getaway car, that you ended losing it yourself. Still wondering where your white sedan ended? Try asking the other 6.8 million white sedans prowling the streets of US.
Do you see the point? It doesn’t matter how good your website is if you’re not leaving your unique fingerprint all over the virtual world. That trail of evidence must lead straight back to you… and unlike a criminal, leaving this revealing evidence is a good thing!
(*That “6.8 million white cars” thing is legit… we looked it up!)
