Why do some websites generate a flood of new enquiries, while others might look pretty, but never generate any business?

This workshop identifies SEVEN key elements that all successful business websites contain. If you can incorporate these SEVEN factors into your own website, then success is virtually assured.

The workshop will cover all SEVEN habits of effective websites including:

  1. Triple Google optimisation
  2. Results-focused, responsive web design
  3. An engaging business story
  4. Professional copywriting for spiders and humans
  5. Action Sales and Authority Pages (ASAP Pages)
  6. Trackable forms and phone numbers
  7. Data capture for ongoing communication

The workshop outcome will be a clear plan of the way forward to apply these concepts to your own website.
