Website Conversion Optimization

Here’s how NOT to approach website conversion optimization on your business website or blog, especially when trying to sell anything directly from a web page… Followed by the best advice to optimize your website for conversions:

Website Conversion Optimization – A Warning!

Good morning, welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here, of course. On the way to Internet Profits HQ here in the UK.

As I just said in the introduction, I read something on social media this morning.

Well, I read a few things – and alarm bells started ringing, and I thought I have GOT to speak about this to you today.

I’ve got to share this, because…

This Could Be Causing So Much Harm To So Many People

…and it’s scary! Let me explain…

So I saw in one of the groups that I belong to this morning, somebody asking a question something along the lines of, “What will work best for website conversion optimization? This, or this?”

Then you had all these people chiming in saying, “Oh, that way would work best. There’s no way the other way is correct, there’s no way that would work.”

And then you had other people saying, “No I’m not sure. I think the other way would work best for website conversion optimization.”

It was very apparent to me, as a bystander, looking in from the outside, that a lot of the opinions being given were from people that were just guessing what they think would work best.

Then something else that I saw, which was based on someone else’s testing (which is great right?) Someone else had done some testing on a certain thing for website conversion optimization.

It was actually on something that they’d added to their website that they thought would increase website conversions. And they were saying…

“I Thought This Would Increase Conversions, But It Didn’t”

So you’ve then got everyone else there commenting, saying, “Oh thanks so much for sharing this, you saved me wasting my time, so I won’t do this.”

And I thought, hang on a minute… This is dangerous! This is scary!

Right, I’ve got one more example, and then I’m going to tell you why this is so scary to me, and dangerous to your business…

Call To Action: The One Thing You Must Do In Your Business At All Times

Call To Action

I want to share this one thing, the call to action, that you need to do in your business at all times, that will undoubtedly make you more money in your business.

So, I never used to do this, right? I never used to do this thing, because I used to assume that people would know what to do.

But when I started doing it, I made more money. And now I always do it!

Okay, so what am I talking about? I’m talking about…

Always Give A Clear Call To Action In Your Marketing

Whether this is in an email that you’re sending, in a sales video that you’re recording, in a sales letter you’re writing, whether it’s in a content piece that you’re creating, a blog post, a social media post.

Whatever it is, if you want your audience, whether they’re reading, watching, listening, whatever it is…

If You Want Them To Take An Action, Tell Them To Do It!

Don’t just assume, because you’ve got a button on the page, or a link in the email, that people will automatically click on it, or know to click on it, okay?

So, for example, right…

The Magnetic Secret To Build A Successful Online Business

Successful Online Business

There’s this one small thing that you can do differently today, that will magnetically start to build a successful business online for you. This changed Dean Holland’s life 13 years ago, and it’s just happened again to him. Time to share it right here, with you…

“Something happened to me yesterday and it reminded me of something that I also did a couple of years ago, and it’s really refreshing.

So I want to actually share what this is, because I think this is going to help you get better results in your business.

For me it was one of those things that I did years ago, that finally allowed me to start seeing success. And actually…

Yesterday, I Did It Again, And It Feels Amazing!

And immediately, your audience relates with you, resonates with you, and supports you. And that’s what I want for you in your successful online business too.

So I want to share something that happened yesterday, and it really took me back. I remember when I was first starting to try and make money online, way, way back now, like 13 years ago.

There was a four-year period where…

I Just Completely Messed Up

I was buying and trying everything. Loaded up five credit cards, two bank loans, got over $60K’s worth of debt by the time I was in my mid-twenties.

But the biggest thing about that – one of the biggest lessons I learned – was during that whole time, because I was so afraid of the mess I got myself into, I didn’t tell anyone. So like, nobody knew.

It wasn’t until I got my first mentor, joined my first coaching program and got my first mentor… This guy said to me (he’s now a good friend, Alex…) he said to me, “Dean, it’s time that you were open, transparent and honest, and shared exactly what you’ve been going through with the rest of the world?”

This was a really scary thought at the time. Because I think, particularly in the ‘make money online’ space and the ‘home business’ space, everybody conveys their success. Everyone shares their wins. Nobody generally, especially 10 years ago…

No One Was Ever Talking About Failure

Nobody was sharing how bad things were for them. Nobody was sharing how much they were failing, right?

Get 1000 YouTube Subscribers And Make Money For Free In Your Videos

I have some exciting news to share!

So, if you’re following this, or you have been following previous episodes of The Drive, you’ll know that every day I’ve got this filming rig set up in my car. And every day on the way to the Internet Profits headquarters here in the UK, I talk about and document what it is that’s going on in the business, how things are going, and share the lessons that I’m learning along the way.

Well this week we crossed a mile stone when we finally managed to…

Get 1000 YouTube Subscribers

…on our channel. And I want to share some of the things that I’ve learned, and some of the things that we’ve done and tried, that I feel has helped to get 1000 YouTube subscribers. And how we’re now hoping to really start to accelerate that at an even faster pace.

So let me just be clear on a few things. This didn’t happen overnight – this wasn’t an immediate thing. And to be honest, until about 10 days ago we weren’t really doing anything to try and encourage subscriptions on the YouTube channel, encourage people to subscribe.

So I’ll share with you…

What We Did Over The Last 10 Days To Really Accelerate That…

…and fill you in on some of the data and statistics.

So, first things first. You should know that we have now done over 70 episodes. So this one right now is probably I think, episode 72 (but don’t quote me on that, I might be one or two out.)

But we’ve crossed over 70 episodes. Now bear in mind I do these every weekday, Monday to Friday. So I do five episodes a week.

The only reason, for me at least, that I’m able to keep that consistency is because…

I’ve Engineered This ‘Way’…

…where I can create the content without actually having to really go out of my way to do it.

I’m driving to the office anyway, and I’m always planning in my own head what’s going on, or what’s happening. So all I’m really doing is talking to myself here. And you get to kind of be like a fly on the window, if you like.

We’ve done over 70 episodes, right? That equates to Monday to Friday, 70 episodes, what’s that? Like 14, 15 weeks of doing The Drive series.

So it’s taken 14 weeks to reach this point. You could say, “Wow! That’s a long time!” But really…
