How to Increase Sales Leads with your Website
Some of the most common differences between websites that generate leads and those that don’t include a presence of call-to-action-buttons, landing pages, and thank you pages.
All three elements work in concert to get a visitor’s attention, offer something valuable in exchange for a visitor’s contact information, and builds credibility by recommending additional
relevant materials. More importantly, they work together to generate leads and bring visitors through your sales funnel.
Call-to-action (CTA) buttons grabs people’s attention and prompts visitors to take action. When clicked, it directs people to a custom tailored landing page where a visitor’s contact information is collected in exchange for a valuable marketing offer.
When first starting, it’s recommended to use different CTA buttons throughout the site, each with a different offer, to see which solicits the highest response. The topic of each CTA button will be used as the theme to the follow up emails after a visitor leaves a site. Knowing what a visitor is interested in is key to understanding what content should be used in the nurturing campaign.
After prospects click on a call-to-action, they are linked to a landing page, sometimes called a “Lead Capture Page.” The purpose of a landing page is to make it easy for prospects to complete a form and not abandon the process. Once a completed form is submitted, a visitor becomes a lead with potential to be nurtured over time. This is crucial since nearly 70% of qualified visitors ultimately become someone’s customer – so each time a visitor leaves a site without filling out a landing page form, a potential sale is lost.
THANK YOU PAGES
Accompanying the receipt of a thank you page is a link to the promised offer. In addition to expressing gratitude, Thank You pages provide an opportunity to further engage with your company via a blog link, newsletter subscription, additional resources of value, and or an opportunity to revisit your website.
