Privacy Tip: 5 Ways Tracked You Should Stop Now

1. Know your competition

Customers already exist and are spending money elsewhere, unless they are truly villains with brand new products and services. Competitor research is one of the best ways to figure out what works and what doesn’t in the industry.

It’s also a smart way to contact your customers’ needs, such as what they expect to pay and how much you can expect to earn.

2. Brand yourself with a memorable domain

A strong web presence is essential. The first step is to protect good domain names. You need something that is easy to remember, clear, and concise. No one remembers a 6-word long URL.

There are benefits to doctors, lawyers, or other professionals who use their name for business.Hey, my website is Komando.com..

How much does a domain cost? Let’s use GoDaddy as an example. For .com addresses, you spend about $ 19.99 a year and pay only a penny for the first year. .me email addresses are available for $ 6.99 a year for the first year and $ 21.99 a year thereafter. The .biz URL costs a total of about $ 37 and requires a two-year purchase.

Of course, the idea of ​​the best domain doesn’t mean anything if it’s adopted. Namech_k shortens the process. Put your idea in and see if it’s registered or open. We’re not just talking about .com and .net. Check .us, .info, .biz, etc.

Also, scrutinize social media sites to see if your favorite name is there. Consistency is important because it helps people find you much faster. That’s why I’m @kimkomando on all social media platforms. Please follow me. For professional tips on using Namech_k, tap or click here.

3. Speaking of websites, make your website smarter

SEO is more than just a keyword that leads you to the top of Google’s search results. Optimized site Lightweight, fast to load, and tight enough to prevent visitors from getting stuck in a glitchy dropdown menu.

If in doubt, you can hire a professional developer to audit your site. This can reveal frustrating flaws that turn off customers. You can also run these free online tests to see the most important issues on your site.

A common problem is website design. Keep in mind that mobile performance is just as important as the appearance of your site on your desktop monitor. Today’s website building tools make it easy to create great-looking, high-performance sites on all your devices.

Weebly’s plan From $ 12 per month. Wix $ 22 / month, $ 27 to accept online payments. Squarespace From $ 23 per month, or $ 27 if you pay.

It’s worth browsing what those monthly charges bring to you. For example, Squarespace’s business plan includes advanced site analytics and a year of professional email via Google. Wix gives you access to direct inventory and 100GB of storage space.

4. Don’t forget email marketing

I have been participating in email marketing games since 1995. At that time, I was sending one email a week. Recently, my team has created 12 different emails, including millions of monthly emails, with an average open rate of over 50%. Tap or click here to try our free technology and digital life newsletter.

I had to invent a way to make it work that day. Today, there are tools that make it easy to compose and send beautiful and engaging emails. There are a few things to consider.

Mailchimp: Send up to 10,000 emails (2,000 emails a day) every month for free. Paid plans start at $ 11 per month and include email templates and custom branding.

Constant contact: You will be charged according to the number of imported email addresses. From $ 9.99 per month up to 500. Up to 2,500 email addresses will run $ 35 per month.

Emma: From $ 99 per month for up to 10,000 contacts. You can add up to 5 users and set up email automation campaigns to attract new customers.

HubSpot: Great if you need a strong marketing and contact hub. The free plan is robust and can add up to 1 million contacts. Paid plans with support, automation, and custom branding start at $ 45 per month for up to 1,000 contacts.

5. Easy to receive payment

Traffic is increasing, but you aren’t making more money. Your customer may be hitting a wall.

Are they dissatisfied with the inconvenient payment method? Are there any technical bugs that prevent them from completing the sale? Use a VPN or Incognito window to run the entire checkout process yourself and see your site as if you were a visitor. Be careful of things that do not go smoothly.

If your payment processing options are not appropriate, consider the following:

square: Pay a flat rate and a percentage of the sale. The cost depends on the type of transaction. For example, a customer who enters a card number online costs 3.5% of sales plus 15 cents.

PayPal: PayPal checkout works as well. Standard credit card payments are 2.99% plus a fee of 49 cents.

Stripes: For card fees, please pay a fee of 2.9% and 30 cents.

6. Pay only what you need

There is no way around some costs, but I think you can save a little money with this gem. The free version of the most popular paid software is just as good.
