I selected this article from Curatti written by Simon Walker because it provides recommendations on how to be successful in attracting sales to your website.

 

Using the right methods can help to draw more customers to your business.

 

Improve Your eCommerce Results

 

When a potential lead lands on your product page you want to encourage them to want to know more. I agree that in order to grab their attention you need to include eye-catching images and content.

 

Walker shows several ways business owners can build a successful website design and execution.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Place important elements high up on the page such as the price, product information, product image, ect. Make the best of your header by showing the best information first.

 

  • Make information clear and easy to find. Remove any distractions or too much text that may cause the visitor to leave the page.

 

  • Draw in more visitors with a 360 degree view. These visible features help the customer see your product more as if they were actually in the store.

The Shifts In Consumer Behavior Driving Google’s Maturation

The Shifts In Consumer Behavior Driving Google’s Maturation | The Web | Scoop.it

While at Google’s offices recently, I had the pleasure to hear a Google Product Manager present the company’s view of how information retrieval has changed with the rise of mobile and smartphone adoption.

 

They are calling it “micro-moments,” the premise being that as smartphone adoption and use continues to skyrocket, consumers increasingly have small bursts of interaction with their phones across search, social, video and email, as opposed to prolonged periods in front of a desktop.

 

This viewpoint represents a shift from the linear “sit, search and act” desktop mentality that characterized the early days of the internet, in which research and action were typically performed in one sitting while in front of a connected internet device.

 

These days, according to Google, more searches are done on mobile than on desktop in many countries, including the United States, Japan and United Kingdom.

 

Google’s micro-moment perspective posits that discovery and action are decoupled as discovery comes in multi-session bursts, across channels, on a mobile device, while action (conversion/purchase) often takes place later on a larger screen, a laptop or tablet device....

If your brand is targeting 20 to 30 year olds, using video as a communication tool is key. You might find that your business, like many others, are failing to fully engage the millennial demographic.

 

Did you know that millennials (or Generation Y, as they’re also called)  will spend more than $200 billion annually starting from 2017? Did you know that millennials are primarily visual buyers? Or that there are approximately 80 million millennials in the US? Needless to say, there’s a lot of money and loyalty to earn if you get your communication strategy right.

 

Luckily, Animoto created an infographic with the key statistics you need to know in order to understand why, and how, the Gen Y are interacting with online videos. Below are the key take-aways....

New Data: Which Popular Media Sites Succeed With Certain Audiences? [infographic] | The Web | Scoop.it

Which domains have the most engaged audiences in five verticals: women, politics, business/finance, science, and technology?

 

To determine the top publishers, we used BuzzSumo to retrieve the sharing metrics on more than 30,000 relevant articles between May 2014 and April 2015 relating to the five verticals mentioned above. In total, these articles earned more than 58 million social shares. We used BuzzSumo to retrieve the top 1,000 articles in each vertical that were published between May 4, 2015 and April 30, 2015 as well.

 

With this data, we identified the 10 publishers in each vertical with the highest number of total shares -- and learned a lot about content promotion along the way. In this post, we’ll walk you through six key takeaways from our findings that'll help you maximize outreach during your next promotions cycle...

Guy Kawasaki shares the layout for a perfect pitch.
Pitching your startup to investors just might be the most nerve-wracking aspect of starting your new business — well, besides the prospect of losing your shirt.


I get it. The last thing you want to do when you’re sleep-deprived and edgy and suffering startup angst is pitch it over… and over… and over again. It’s actually a pretty helpless feeling, asking strangers to decide on the fate of your new venture. If it’s your first or second venture, there can be a real learning curve, too. It takes time and feedback to get it right.

The Importance of Content in Social Media Marketing

The Importance of Content in Social Media Marketing | The Web | Scoop.it

Often we get asked: How did you grow your Twitter followers to such impressive numbers? Why do my accounts not grow as much as I want them to? Why do I get nothing out of all my marketing efforts? Why do people not talk about my product in social media?


And most of the time the answer is: It’s the Content – or the lack thereof.


What do you post if you do not have interesting content?If you have no good content to share on social media, you either cannot post as often as you want to (and should be) or you sound like a self promotional tout. Social Media Marketers can only post as often as they want if they have the amazing content to share that makes their posts powerful enough.


And when your social media updates fail to be useful (like interesting content) – why should others care or even share them?


Of course social media is also about conversations and interaction and not only about sharing content. But your options in social media are very limited if you yourself cannot start the conversations you want to have with the right content....

Apple's Tim Cook shows how to communicate in a crisis - without bullshit

Apple's Tim Cook shows how to communicate in a crisis - without bullshit | The Web | Scoop.it

Apple’s in a bind. The FBI wants them to crack the encryption on a San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone. Apple believes that’s a dangerous precedent. Apple CEO Tim Cook’s open letter is breathtakingly simple and clear. Learn from it.

 

Here’s Apple’s logic: Breaking encryption creates a “back door.” Any such back door would inevitably get out. Thieves and foreign governments could use it. And then none of our data would be safe. Financial flows and everyday privacy use similar encryption — this precedent would threaten the same problems in those domains.

 

This is an unpopular position. Gloss over the details and it seems like Apple is protecting a terrorist. As Donald Trump, as always articulating the simplistic view, said, “Who do they think they are?”

 

In this situation, a press release would be useless. Instead, Tim Cook published an 1,100-word, plain-language open letter explaining the company’s position. I’ll take it apart and show you how and why it works. Excerpts below, with my comments in brackets....

The design should also concur with what you have to offer. Any website with content should focus more on typography based design rather than bling-bling. If you are trying to build a portfolio, things get more focused on images and how important information can be highlighted.

 

Minimalistic design, on the other hand, is user-friendly and also offers great SEO leverage to the website. Minimalist WordPress themes are light-weight and offer a great loading time. Less loading time means a great boost in Google rankings.
