LET YOUR WEBSITE DO YOUR TALKING - How To Convert Your Voice To RealAudio On The Fly!Written by Maria L. Schasteen
Have you ever wondered what it would take to quickly get your own voice file onto your website?
* How to greet your customers in your own voice. Let them get to know you; trust you.
* Have an excited customer tell a testimonial about your service. Capture that "story from heart"!
* Are you selling sound on your site? How to put your custom-made audio clip on your website in an instance?
This easy three-step process will give your site that personal touch. That caring image. An interactive website that sells itself - in your own voice!
StarTouch International has just released a new feature for ESA, their Electronic Secretarial Administrator. ESA can now place any voice file (up to 10 minutes long) on your website in just seconds.
Here is how it works:
1. Call ESA, your own toll-free messaging system. Press # to leave a message. At tone, leave your "message". When finished, just hang up.
Your "message" can be anything from a heart-felt welcome greeting to an interactive product description; from a glowing testimonial, to a custom-made sound clip of your new album.
2. In your ESA administration center, save "message" as a voice-on-demand file. With ESA, you can store 900 voice-on-demand files, each up to 10 minutes long.
TRAFFIC ISN'T WHERE ITS AT!!Written by windsong
You've heard it before. You need to get traffic to your site. Promote, promote, promote. Thats what you get from all promoters and marketers on line. Is this really true? You want to market online. So you have built your site and submitted it to search engines. You have placed classifieds and FFA's. You are continually promoting, and this is good. You DO want to bring traffic to your site. But it needs to be targeted traffic. What does that mean? It simply means that all traffic you bring to your site should be potential customers. But everyone is a potential customer, you say. Wrong. You want to pull new traffic from those people who are already interested in what you are selling. However, all this new traffic to your site isn't worth anything unless they:
1. Stay at your site, instead of clicking away. 2. Return to your site often. 3. Buy your products or services.
Now you ask, "How do I keep 'em at my site?" and "How do I keep them coming back?" and "How do I get them to buy my products?" Well, actually its easy. There are a few things to consider. People out there in cyberspace are looking for information. They are looking for whatever they can get for free. They are in a hurry. They have no patience whatsoever. So how do you design your site to meet needs of these surfers?
First off, you've heard old saying, "content is king". This point can't be stressed enough. I have been to sites that claim to have content. They have tons of banners and maybe a link to an article or two, or some links to sites of their friends. That is NOT content. Articles are great, but have them (more than one or two) on your site. Links to other sites can be good, but you need to be sure that they are relevant to theme of your site. If not, you are going to lose that surfer before he/she has a chance to see what you are offering.
Offer things on your site that are free. These should be things that have actual value to your visitors, ie: a free internet marketing course, free E-books, free internet access, or free email accounts. You get idea. The more better. However, be sure that these are quality freebies. Nobody likes cheap and sleazy stuff. It may take a little effort on your part, and some negotiation with other webmasters, but will be worth all your efforts. You will be building a rapport with these surfers. They will remember where they got that terrific freebie and come back looking for more.
