Do You Really Understand Your Visitors

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever been on a website and found yourself leaving it because it was a cluttered mess? It is was nothing but a bunch or graphics and links to one sales page after another. It is amazing how many really bad websites there are. They do not understand their visitors. If they did they would spend more time offering you a website that was worth sticking around on.

Internet marketing is really very simple. Understand your visitor and what they want. Then give it to them. That's it in a nutshell. If you will create a website that solves a problem you will make sales. If you do an email marketing campaign that is built around information that asks a question of interest and then provides the answer you will make more sales.

Understanding your visitor is not a hard thing to do if you take a step back and concentrate on what it is that has brought them to your website in the first place. This means developing an overall theme to your marketing message. What you say in an ad. How you write your bio box in an article marketing campaign, The words in your signature file when you are participating in dscussion forums. Staying on message seems like such a simple concept you wonder why more people don't do it.

Sadly they do not. Their website is full of anything and everything. Many times the information is so off theme you forget what you came to it for in the first place.

The other thing is the appearance of the website. You need to understand your audience here. The colors you use make a big difference in how your site is viewed. If your audience is older you want to be more conservative in the design. Baby boomers will like a little more bold look.

Do a Google search for keywords that relate to theme of your site and the content as well. Look at the really good websites and how they are layed out. Websites that get a lot of visitors to them are liked by both the search engines and visitors alike. Never be afraid to borrow a good idea and personalize it on your own website.

Use common sense and answer this simple question. Do you really understand your visitors? Is the message you want to send being presented in a way that they will understand. Your internet marketing success depends on it.
