Landing Page Website Tip #1: Your Offer

Marcus

Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel

When’s the last time you feel that because of an offer, you signed up for something? I did this recently when I drove by what seems the hundreds of new carwashes popping up. Their offer was, “Car wash today for $5” instead of their normal $10 rate. Then, when I got up there they said their monthly subscription for unlimited car washes was $5 a month for the next 3 months. I thought, wow, why wouldn’t I sign up for this offer and they had me ever since.

Do you know why I love landing page websites for testing offers? Because it gives your audience the chance to say 1 of 2 things, yes or no. Is the car wash company expecting for every person in the city to stop by and sign up for their offer, probably not. But, they are expecting a certain percentage to sign up for their offer based on what I imagine they ask in person. That’s also what you can expect to do with a landing page, you can reduce all the other “noise” from your website and see if an offer is working or not.

Here’s an example of a recent landing page I worked on

I worked recently with Tangerine Cookies to create a landing page offer to draw up more business for corporate clients. The offer we are testing now is, “Schedule a talk with Tara and I’ll send you a box of free cookies.” What business owner or marketing exec wouldn’t request that free box of cookies? That’s exactly what we are hoping 🙂

You’ll see on this landing page that there isn’t anything to do except say yes or no to this offer. That’s what makes it so good.

Remember, you could have the perfect video, testimonial, or even text that hits all the right points, it all comes down to how good of an offer you are presenting to the prospect.

By the way, if you haven’t tried Tangerine Cookies they are one word, phenomenal! Check out their main site by visiting tangerinegourmetcookies.com or if you are looking to send some amazing gifts to your clients, check out the landing page by visiting corporatecookiesgift.com

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

What are you doing with your email list?

I got to hear Brad Parscale (another Shawnee heights grad #respect) at an event say the number one way to reach prospects is either through texting or with email drips. And he said that in 2019 as the campaign manager for President Trump.  Think about that, they’ve spent millions of dollars in advertising online not just for brand awareness but ultimately to get someone’s email address because they know the value of having your email address in their database. How should you use your email list? It all starts with racking your brain around what value can You show to a perspective client and then it’s super easy after that developing a content and email marketing calendar. The one caveat you must abide by is…

The storybrand website framework and 3 reasons why it matters

One of the best books you can read to shape your approach to how you market your business online is the book, “Building a StoryBrand” by Donald Miller. He is full of so much insight and wisdom on how this approach can transform your website that I wanted to share the top 3 reasons why this approach matters. #1 – It positions yourself as the guide, not the hero.  This will shape the photos you take, the opening statement on your site, and how your videos are created because you are thinking how this effects the person that is ultimately deciding to use you or someone else. If they can see themselves being “guided” by you and themselves as the hero you have them hooked.…

Would someone come back to your website?

The first thing you have to ask yourself is why would someone come back to your website right?  It seems like 95% of websites are “static” and aren’t frequently updated. The other 5% are making updates and give you a reason to come back, let’s look at why. #1 – There is a blog The tricky thing about this though is that you shouldn’t just call this section on your site “blog,” it should be a topic that you show your expertise on as well as authority on this topic. I recently read Michael Hyatt’s book “platform” and highly recommend you read it as he walks through step by step on how you should do this. #2 – There is a video series Wistia does…
