Put yourself in your clients’ shoes
Most clients need common questions answered before they purchase. They want to know who recommends you, what experience you have, how much your services cost, and if they’ll be comfortable working with you. A goal of your web marketing is to answer the questions your clients want to ask.
We teach you how to answer the basic marketing questions which leads to more contact requests for your services.
Web marketing is working when the phone rings
A number one Google rank and thousands of Facebook followers don’t translate to booming business. Those starting points for traffic still need to convert potential clients into customers who make contact and book a session. It’s about getting more traffic across your entire web presence and driving those visitors to contact you for a potential sale opportunity.
