Tidy up your website and marketing efforts with these tips.
People do spend some time tidying up their websites and marketing efforts. Yet, there always seems to be a few things they forget to clean up. Since it's spring, here is a checklist for you to start getting your site in order:
1. Clean up your lists. This is a great time to send out an email to reactivate emails that have either never purchased from you or haven't clicked on a link in one of your emails in a while.
2. Verify your offers. Review your popular pages to make sure your older offers align with your current offers. It may also make sense to try one of your newer offers (ebooks, white papers, sales, etc.) to your inactive list.
3. Update your autoresponder emails (thank you for your order, request for information, etc). Take a look at these emails and try to rewrite them in a friendlier tone. Add social media profile links into the email.
4. Update your thank you pages. There are many cool things you can do on your thank you page. Everything from embedding a thank you-style video that offers extra value to social media sharing options, as well as additional offers. Try something.
5. Check for broken and expired links. Use the following tools:
6. Tags and pixels.
