3 Quick and Easy Website Tweaks that Leverage Your Time

When it comes to leveraging your time, developing an automatic system is the sharpest tool in your toolbox. It allows you to get more done in less time. One area that many small business owners overlook is their website. You can make the following quick and easy website tweaks that leverage your time.

1. Use Your Blog to Build Your Mailing List

Like any smart business owner, you likely have opt-in forms on your website. But do you have a solid call to action at the end of your blog posts? When a new reader is finished reading your posts, she is primed to learn more. Give her the opportunity by offering an opt-in at the end of each post.

Even better, make it a logical next step by creating a related offer for each post. These content upgrades typically consist of a simple checklist or worksheet. They capture attention by providing even more information about a topic the reader is already interested in.

2. Keep Them Reading with Related Links

How often do you revisit old blog posts to link to newer content? This is an important maintenance job that will help provide visitors with the information they are looking for by linking related posts together.

Not only is this strategy good for keeping visitors on your site, but Google approves as well. Posts that link to each other encourage search engine bots to crawl your site more thoroughly, and help boost the rankings of your most relevant posts.

3. Make the Best of Your Download Pages

Whether you are giving away a free report or paid product, your download pages can pull double-duty by offering visitors a “what’s next” option. For free download pages, a related, low-cost product is best. It gives readers the chance to learn more about you with a small investment.

If you are using a double-opt-in mailing list, make use of that confirmation page, too! That is the perfect place for a quick upsell or an invitation to join you in your Facebook group or weekly Facebook Live presentation.

 

Conclusion

Remember to make the following quick and easy website tweaks that leverage your time. Your reader should be offered the next logical step whenever she lands on your page.

(1) Use your blog to build your email list.

(2) Keep them reading with related links.

(3) Make the best of your download pages.
