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.

Does your website need help?

What happens or should happen after someone fills out a form on your website?

The KC Royals had just one the World Series… finally. They have hours, days in fact of footage to get you hyped about the next season and have everyone ready to buy next years season tickets. As a creative team, we had decided to buy season tickets as giveaways to our team and the credit card was in my hands. I guess I was expecting something magical when I clicked the “buy now” button to complete an order of an entire season – a message from Dayton Moore, a highlight reel of last season, a photo of them holding the trophy from last year, a countdown timer to opening day… something. And what came up after I clicked buy? A simple, boring, thanks for your…

What types of photos should you use on your website?

Let’s face it, people are on your site to see you and what your business offers. Photos are essential for a quality website, but here are some examples of what you should be using. A great quality headshot Like my friend Rick above from Sardis Events, this is a great example of a photo you should use. Notice I didn’t say glamour shot, but a high quality headshot to show who you are and often how you will appear to your clients in an everyday setting when they interact with you. Don’t take the suit and tie pic if you will never show up this way.  This is who Rick is every time I interact with him. Use real people If you are a restaurant,…

2020 Website Trends and how I used them for our new IMC website

Big text, gifs, large photos and “storybrand” conversational copy, it’s all part of how the web is going in 2020. What’s great about these trends is websites are now truly adapting to using the entire screen and they are honestly starting to look like a print pieces. I feel that in 2020, the days of sites having 12 point font should be over. Let’s look at why. Big text, no really big text is awesome! We all know that your website visitors will only stay on your site for a casual glance (say 8 seconds). Knowing this, you have to have scannable headlines. I gave our site big (but short) headlines and minimal text below each headline. Why waste time to write text if no…
