October 11, 2021
👉🏼#1 Find your Niche
Are you good at something but find yourself stuck in a career that doesn’t make sense? Then you might want to make a change. If you’ve got what it takes to become an entrepreneur, then there are plenty of opportunities available for freelancers who can do a range of jobs – from website design to copywriting.
👉🏼#2 Learn to Write Copy
There is a proven sales copy formula that takes visitors through the entire process from when they arrive to when they make a purchase:
Write a compelling headline.
Describe the problem your product or service solves.
Establish your credibility as a solver of this problem.
Add testimonials from clients who have used or purchased your product.
Talk about the benefits for the user.
Offer your product or service.
Provide a strong guarantee.
Ask for the website visitor to purchase.
👉🏼#3 Design and build your website.
Once you've got your niche and product, and you've decided on your selling process, now you're ready for your small-business web design. Remember to keep it simple. You have fewer than five seconds to grab someone's attention -- otherwise, they're gone, never to be seen again. Some important tips to keep in mind:
Use one or two simple fonts on a white background.
Make your website navigation clear and simple, and the same on every page.
Only graphics, audio or video to enhance your message.
Include an opt-in (frebie) offer so you can collect e-mail addresses that can be used for email marketing.
Make it easy to buy -- no more than two clicks between potential customer and checkout.
Your website is your online storefront, so make it customer-friendly.
