Today’s eTip is about using video on your website home page to help boost your list building efforts.
Sometimes I’ll see a business or entrepreneur’s website and their video on the home page is either amateurish looking or it’s too much of a commercial.
What you want is something that is personable, friendly and brings out your personality so that you draw people in and compel them to want to watch your video.
You want to make it 1-2 minutes long – nice and short, concise and to the point.
You also want to end it with a call to action to get people to sign up for your free giveaway. This really works well for list building.Make your home page video short, concise and end with a call to action.Click To Tweet
Stats show that people rarely buy right away when they visit a website so you want to give them a reason to get into your list so you can continue to build the “know, like and trust” relationship with them. By doing that is by getting them to sign up for your free giveaway.
The best way to do that is to share in your welcoming video why they should sign up for it and what kind of benefits they’ll get from it.
Make the video more about your free giveaway and less about you and get people into your list so that you can then nourish them and eventually convert them into clients.
