Attributes Of A Dental Practice Landing Page
Today Andy Brown helps dentists save ad budget and generate more enquiries by sending their paid traffic to a customised dental practice landing page. The number one mistake dentists make using Google Ads is they send paid traffic to their homepage or service pages. This rarely produces results dentists are happy with. This is especially true if the paid traffic is sent to their homepage because the visitor is left to find their way to the content displayed in the ad. It’s crucial that all friction is removed from clicking on the ad to finding the specific information they are expecting. Any difficulty and the visitor will leave.

5 Proven Business Email Headlines To Increase Your Open Rates
Today we review 5 proven email headlines to improve your business open rates. Email marketing is one of the best channels to market to your prospects and customers. Carried out correctly, it gives you the chance to have a private conversation with your customer. In doing so you form a relationship with them, and in time you become their trusted resource. Remember, when your prospect scans the list of emails in their inbox, they base the all important “Read or Delete” decision on two pieces of information: the return address and the headline. If they see that the email address is someone that they know and trust, then the decision is easy, they read the email. If the email is from someone they don’t know, the headline is the next thing they consider before making their decision to open or not. The headline is therefore extremely important when maximizing your email marketing. Do you have a question you would like answered on the show?

Why Creating An Evergreen Content Strategy Is An Absolute Must Do Task
Today we discuss why you need to implement an evergreen content marketing strategy as soon as possible, in order to ensure long term business growth. Implementing an evergreen content strategy should be at the heart of your online marketing. No matter when someone reads your content, next week, next month or in a year, the reader gets the impression that the material was written specifically for them on the day they receive or read it. That’s one reason why you should be careful about adding dates to your content writing. Adding dates may make your readers think your post isn’t relevant for them. They may consider it is out of date, and therefore dismiss it, even if the information contained in the article is relevant to them. I recommend using recurring dates in the context of holidays, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, etc. This way you can promote your evergreen content on these recurring occasions every year.

5 Reasons Why A Wordpress Website Is Better Than An HTML One
Today we discuss why it is much better to use Wordpress for your new website than HTML. I speak to business owners like you everyday. It’s always great to get a real insight into your successes and problems. I can learn so much from one conversation. The reality is I can only do my job well when I truly understand what drives a business forward and what holds it back. When it comes to the subject of what’s holding a business back, there’s one topic that comes up time and time again. It’s quite simply the fact that business owners feel totally restrained by their website when it’s built in html and they have to rely on external web designers to make even one simple update. Can you relate to this? Are you a business owner that wants to improve their website, but as soon as you do, you immediately hear the cash register ringing? It is as if you are in straitjacket, unable to improve your website with the ease you want.

Do Not Rely On Social Media As Your Primary Traffic Source
Today we discuss the important of not relying totally on social media as your primary source of traffic to your business website. It is important not to rely totally on social media as your primary source of traffic to your local business website. Recent news has shown that some sites are experiencing a drop in traffic due to new restrictions by Facebook. Elite Daily, Upworthy and Huffington Post are among the sites that are experiencing up to 40 percent drop in traffic levels because Facebook changed the way content is displayed. It can be a serious problem when you rely on only one source for your social media presence. Consider Your Website As A Mothership Think of your website as the mothership. The other social media outlets are the satellites spinning around it, namely Twitter, Google Plus,Tumblr and Facebook. I recommend you don’t put more time and effort into maintaining your presence on the satellites than you do for your mothership.

How To Get More Exposure On Facebook
Host Andy Brown discusses how to get more exposure on Facebook. Let’s discuss how to get more exposure in Facebook by truly understanding how EdgeRank works. A lot of people don’t understand how Facebook works. Since the IPO, Facebook has started focusing more on making money, to keep their shareholders happy. They also had to determine how your information gets displayed, and how they were going to make sure you were not inundated with updates from your network but instead only showed you posts you would be interested in. You may ask how is this determined? Facebook tries to look at posts that have a higher engagement rate, and push these ones higher up your newsfeed. They use their own in house algorithm to work this out, called EdgeRank. EdgeRank Determines How Many Of Your Fans See Your Status Updates Thus if you post something for your business on Facebook, it is likely to be seen by 12-14% of your fans or friends.

How To Repurpose Your Blog Posts
Host Andy Brown discusses ways to repurpose your content across different marketing platforms. What you would do if you wrote a 500-word blog post and published it, where would you go from there? Most people would write another article, start the research, draft it out and then write it. Repurposing Your Content For Facebook Now consider this, if you have a 500-word blog post (it can be any length, but that’s a good start), then consider that you can actually take different sections, maybe sentences, from it, and turn them into tweets so you are beginning to repurpose your content. You could take a longer segment from the article, and make that it into a Facebook status update, so again you are repurposing your content. You could use the best part, and then you link back to it, so you’re driving traffic back to your website from social media – which is always a good idea.

The Key To Optimising Your Adwords Ads And Not Wasting Your Money
Host Andy Brown helps clinic owners and small business owners like you attract a steady, consistent stream of new patients and clients. The principle behind not wasting lots of money on Adwords is in making sure that your Adwords ads are relevant. When I say relevant, I mean, when someone searches on Google for instance, imagine they search with questions like “how do I knew if my osteopath is qualified?”, “will I have to take my clothes off?”, “will the treatment hurt me?”, and “do I get better treatment if I go to a better osteopath?” – they will be able to view ads that address these questions and when they click they are taken to a relevant landing page. If you consider my question examples above, the person searching within Google expects to see organic results that answer their questions. Google also wants this same experience to apply to when they click on their ads. Sometimes the ads might not be very relevant, they might simply be saying we’r

How To Claim And Verify Your Google+ Business Page
Andy Brown discusses how to claim and verify your Google+ Business Page. Consider the situation where someone is looking for your service online. Specifically they are searching on your town name plus the service you offer. For example, it could be St Andrews osteopath, or Edinburgh chiropractor. Here’s the thing, any time you have a search with the name of the service the offer and the town where you provide it, you can guarantee that one of the pages that they will show up will be your Google Plus business page. It’s a page that many businesses don’t know exists! Google gave out millions of these pages a few years ago when they launched Google Plus. They said here’s your business page, even if you don’t have a website you can have this page, please optimize it, we will rank it well in Google for you. But like I said many people don’t realize that they actually have this page. So unfortunately when you do search on a lot of different services p

Andy Brown talks about the forthcoming Triple Your Clients Podcast. Show Transcription Here we are in, well it’s not quite sunny as it’s a little bit overcast, but there’s a bit of blue sky here in St Andrews, Scotland. Up here on the east side, about an hour from Edinburgh if you drive it or train it. I’m here to give you some advice, know-how and tips, on how I can help you with your marketing. That could be for your clinic, because a lot of the businesses I work with are in healthcare. But it could be for any kind of business. So why a podcast? Well, like you, back in 2007-2008, I heard the term podcast, but it got run over by the fast train that was YouTube and online video – the world got taken over with sharing videos – and podcasts got lost. But now we all have iphones and smartphones and we want content on demand. When we’ve got five minutes, when we’re running, or when we are waiting at the bus stop, we have a need for audio and podcasts.
