When it comes to marketing any business online people very rarely ever sit around and wait for things to just happen. If you are, it might be wise to start testing different efforts and approaches to get things moving a bit. Often times you really need to make some changes and perform tweaks to fully understand what is really working and what isn’t. This goes with every online marketing effort you could possibly think of to help start building your business.
Let’s take a look at some web marketing efforts you should always be testing:
1. Your Website: Your website is something you should be testing all the time. You are always going to get people that respond differently on your website depending on how you have things laid out. Very rarely is a website built and just left alone to function properly. You have to move things around and change things to see how different business can be overtime. You might find that having a lead sign up form on a different part of your page brings in more sign ups or a phone number in a different location all of a sudden gets the phone ringing even more. Things like lead forms being placed in different areas for a certain time period will reveal its complete effectiveness. You have to test different things on your website otherwise you could be missing out on great opportunities.
2. Email Newsletter: Your email newsletter is another great place to really test out a variety of efforts that could help you out in the long run. If you send out a regularly scheduled newsletter and you forget to test how do you know what is working well and what isn’t? Move things around and change the type of information you put into your email marketing in order to increase conversion rates and get your business growing. If you don’t change things around eventually your efforts will get a little stale for your recipients and you will reach a saturation point for your email recipients.
3. Social Media Marketing: Social media is a very big area to test things out. Try different approaches to see what it takes to get people to react back and respond to you. If you send out the same message over and over you will almost always get the same response back. Changes things up a bit.
Testing is a very important part of marketing and building a business online. Keep things moving around so you find exactly what works.
