You got the free time I suppose to horse around with this stuff.

What do you mean horse around?
I dont play games, if it wasnt profitable i wouldnt do it.

Friday i had a commercial estimate that came from a landing page on a nichee adword campaign.
Probably $2k a year bid that cost me like $20.

Actually we use landing pages for customer surveys now after jobs, its quicker and easier then sending an attachment.

You just dont know what,why or how.

As to your 2k story, what say you to the fella that nailed a 2k yr bid WITH OUT a landing page?

Don't overcomplicate the Lead Generation process

In my opinion
1. I understand a landing page
2. I also understand the use of it
3. I understand that with recent technologies it can be an effective marketing tool.
As with any other tool or marketing strategy you have to have an audience for it. With the help of another member I'm re-branding myself sort of and with the rebrand comes a web page SEO work and a landing marketing scheme I want to try. I hope by this time next year to have a completely different outlook on biz and hopefully success in the plan. I have all the dominoes lined up so we shall see,,,

I agree that landing pages can very useful but with the little effort most of us put into marketing, I can agree with 6' that there's hundred other things we have to be doing before spending time on building landing pages.

Most of us don't get that far...

Yeah but what if you could have an unlimited number of them hosted and a tool to create them.

That doesnt drop in your crm, ;).

For a 2 truck operating like Myself it's smarter to do My client follow ups via text messaging.

If I recall you're off the truck as well.

Why not do a more personalized CRM with all your free time?

Why or for a disconnected, inhuman option?

Some things you automate, some things you just don't

We do!!

We do everything phone,mail and email.
Every customer is different, some people are very difficult to reach via phone.

Not a fan of texting customers, although if we had an app i would.

No something easy to remember and spell. Then you can put it on b cards, print, any advertising you do.
Here is an example.

Hi Shane,

My web guy tried to school me in the specifics of a landing page and basic SEO but in all honesty, it went in one ear and out the other.... Which is why I pay HIM to be the web guy and not try and figure it out myself!

Anywho, my takeaways from his attempts at teaching me, in regards to a landing page, is that the calls to action should be prominent and obvious. He has also done some click to call buttons for those on their mobiles.

He did mention getting ranked in google and other search engines but the only thing I took from that lesson was that you need a lot of original and authoritative content on your landing page for google to rank it in their search engine. The reason I recall this specifically is because I was unhappy with the amount of content on the landing page he created, thought it was a waste - who would actually read it. I was assured it was essential and can confirm, after a short time, it has paid off, with my landing page now ranking in google searches for my local area.

For someone who with minimal knowledge of web design, content, seo and the like, I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a website to get some professional advice and then decide whether to hire their services or attempt to make a website yourself. I can do without that sort of headache so happily paid a local business. If you want to check out my landing page and basic website the link is http://www.geelongscleanestcarpets.com/ I'm happy with it and it's starting to give me calls. Would be interested in any feedback from anyone in regards to my website, positive or negative.

Thanks,

Sally
