Customer Reviews On Your Site Increase Conversions

Customer Reviews Are GOOD For YOU!!

Do you include product or service reviews right on your website?

Are you coordinating the customer reviews right on your site or are you importing them from another site?

Believe it or not — reviews — good or bad can increase your conversions.  (That means more sales!) Right off the bat you would think that a bad review doesn’t help you.  But it is the fact that you have reviews at all that is helping you.  The advantage of having them right on your site is that the visitor is in your sales funnel.  If they leave your site to check reviews then there is a good chance that they aren’t coming back.  Keeping them on your site increases your chance of converting them into a buyer or customer.

If you are using WordPress to manage your site there are several nice plugins that will add customer reviews to your site.

I generally play with plugins to see if I like the way it works.  I read the reviews on the plugin and ratings and also check when it was last updated.  If it has been longer than a couple of months then I generally move onto another plugin.  It is important to use up to date plugins as WordPress is always updating and old plugins or themes can mess up your site.

Bottom line on customer reviews is that they are good for you.

You can also collect them on your fanpage and import those to your site.

Ask your customers for reviews.  Offer an incentive for the review…. such as a free report — or info sheet — or coupon for 10% off a service, find a way to reward them for the review — good or bad!

And of course if you do have a bad customer review — try to do some follow up with the person. Not so much to get them to take down their bad review of you, but to try to remedy the dissatisfaction and provide excellence in customer service.  Many times a bad review is based on a bad interaction and can easily be remedied with a good one.  Be the kind compassionate, customer care rep that turns the situation around.

Customer Reviews helps you in building your business operations as well as helping your onsite conversion.  Take each customer review as a gift and be thankful for the positive or negative feedback. Each customer review can help you grow and develop your company.

Email Marketing — Is It for YOU? Provider Reviews

email marketing

Email Marketing — A MUST strategy for both ONLINE and OFFLINE Businesses!

Is Email Marketing for you?

IF SO — Which Email Marketing Provider is RIGHT for YOU?

I was recently talking with a client that had just switched his email marketing provider.  It baffled me.  His company — a new start-up with NO email list.  We had set up Mailchimp for him.  It is a great program for new companies.  It provides a solid platform and is free for the first 2,000 subscribers.  For most companies that is a great foundation and more than they have.

What did he change to??  Constant Contact!  Why — another marketer recommended it.  But for him… it isn’t necessarily the right choice…why not??? Let’s take a look at a few of the different options.

I personally have switched to Pure Leverage and in a minute I will tell you my reasons.  But first let’s review the options, and there are many!! If you WANT to check it out Right NOW ===>>>> CLICK HERE 

Mailchimp — cute chimp with cute sayings when you login.  Mailchimp is a great option for many.  I love that it is free at first.  It allows auto-responders as well as broadcasts but the auto-responders are limited.  You can easily use Mailchimp with wordpress, integrate with other services such as Eventbrite. I have personally used Mailchimp for my business for a short time and have set it up for many clients.  I found for my business it wasn’t the right solution as it was cumbersome to set up e-courses and multipart auto-responders and then broadcast to the different groups.  BUT, for many it is a great solution and it is a great place to start.

Constant Contact — I have personally used Constant Contact as well.  I found the interface fairly easy to use.  BUT, it does not have sufficient auto-responder capability.  What is an auto-responder?  An auto-responder is a series of emails that are set up and then automatically go out to subscribers on a schedule.  For instance on this site I have several “Crash Courses” that are typically 5 or 6 emails that go out daily as soon as the person subscribes.  I have 5 or 6 different courses set up.  My general email list has a series of 20 emails that go out to people when they sign up for my special report.  Why?  I have an offer that I make to my subscribers — I want them to get it right away and then I want to start building a relationship with them.  Auto-responders help you to create rapport with your new subscribers and start providing them VALUE right away.  Constant contact has great newsletter or broadcast capability but not the auto-responder capacity. They do not allow you to email affiliate links or network marketing links.  They will stop your email if they don’t like the links that you have in it.  This happened to me right before a big event that I was hosting. I NEEDED my list to have the information.  I had an affiliate link in the sidebar for something and they blocked the email.  It decreased my attendance at the event…. and I switched from Constant Contact immediately.  You have to decide what your goals are and what you need from your auto-responder.

Aweber — used by many Internet Marketers.  Aweber provides solid service for both newsletters and auto-responders.  Great deliverability.  Getting your email into people’s box is one of the most important reasons for using an email provider.  You personally, have limited ability to get your email delivered if you are trying to send your email to thousands or even hundreds of people at the same time.  Most hosting companies will shut you down.  Many Internet Service Providers will slam the door.  All of the providers here have the same goal — deliver your email and keep the door open.  That is largely what you are paying for! Aweber is a great choice, but pricey.

PureLeverage <<===this is an affiliate link!!

Okay, so why did I choose PureLeverage?  Several reasons…. they have a great track record for deliverability.  It is built by Internet Marketers — that tells me that they know the importance of great product and solid customer service.  They know that I need my list to receive my emails!!

100% Commissions They pay 100% — yes 100% commission AND for my $24.95 I can have an email list of 10,000.  At each of the other providers if my list is that big I will pay — $47 to $67 to $97 per month.

Webinar Conferencing in addition to Email Marketing

In addition —>>> PureLeverage also provides a 100 seat webinar conferencing software that I can use!!  I would pay $97 per month with GoToMeeting for that service alone!

They also provide the ability to promote their service easily and earn money as well as have a wealth of training inside to teach members HOW TO market their business.

I know that many brick and mortar or offline businesses are hesitant to follow what Internet Marketers do.  BUT, what I have SEEN is that Internet Marketers that are good are numbers people. They test everything they do.  If they say that red headlines are better than black it is because they have set up both and watched what happened.  If they say that emailing your list everyday is good — then it is because they have tested it.

PureLeverage is state of the art auto-responder and program.  It provides all of the tools and training inside to get your list working well.

– Does Aweber pay you for your mailing?
– Does Amazon pay you for your videos, and video storage?
– Does GoTo Meeting or Web Ex pay you for your webinars?

NO THEY DON’T! It is worth checking out PureLeverage.

In my business — I look for tools that are going to work well within my business AND if there is a way to add an new stream of revenue — I do that as well.  BUT, if it is not the right tool for your business — then I am not recommending it.

If you have questions about which email marketing provider is right for you — leave me a comment and I will help you to figure it out.  It is important to have an email list and program.  I have had one for years.  BUT, I am moving it all over to PureLeverage.  So right now, I am transitioning.  In the past I self hosted my email list and have found that it is no longer working well.  It is HUGE to move a list.  It is vital to make a good choice in the beginning.  Look at:  what the provider offers, what your budget is and what you can afford, research and see what other people are using…. and make the decision that is right for you and your business.

Be sure to share your experiences with different companies below.

Ask your questions about which service to choose.

Get your offline business ONLINE.  

Even if you are in a brick and mortar store front or network marketing company you can benefit from having an email list and using email marketing as a key strategy.  You can keep in touch with your customers, your team, your prospects.  Each group can be on a different list and each can be sent important information.  For customers, you can share special offers, events and news.  For prospects you can move them into being customers with your email alone!! For team members — you can remind them of calls that are happening, events you are hosting or your upline.  Communication is the key in building relationships.  Regular and frequent communication will build your business. When you choose to NOT communicate with your groups you are choosing to NOT grow your business at the rate that you could!!

Is that really the choice you intended??

Email marketing is a key strategy in building a thriving business.  It works for online and offline businesses.  It is a business growth strategy that works only if you use it regularly and consistently!

Lead Generation System

Does YOUR Business Need MORE?

Most business owners are struggling

Leads are the growth juice for business.  But I also want you to look at the video… it is the beginning of new learning on video marketing.  Check out the intro and exit.  I think they dress it up!!  Cover creates more branding….

And each piece done easily and inexpensively!

As you can see — the educational resources within My Lead System Pro are beginning to work.  New viewers, new people accessing the free training resources — and those all equal new prospects.

A system gives you the tools to generate leads and earn income.

Why integrate a lead system into your business?  I’m thinking…. because you could use more business, but there is no more time in the day to go out networking, connecting, no more money for ads, flyers and other strategies that have limited results.

Developing an effective online strategy produces leads 24 hours per day.

While you are sleeping or at home with family…. new leads are appearing.  When you have a good online strategy — then you have methods for working with those new leads via your auto-responder that help build rapport and relationship right off the bat!

Live the Dream V Review

April Marie Tucker with Donna Price

Me with April Marie Tucker at Live the Dream V talking lead generation, business growth, building the dream!

Lessons Learned from Live the Dream V

Just returned from Austin, Texas.  My first time in Texas other than a plane stop and transfer years ago in Houston.  But that hardly counts as being in Texas!! The weekend was incredible.  the Founders of MLSP, Brian Fanale and Norbert Orelwicz created an incredible event.  Presenters throughout the weekend were inspiring, but more importantly shared usable information about generating leads, growing businesses and increasing results and revenue.

Over the next few days and possibly weeks, I will be sharing tips and info that I learned at the event, along with stories and pictures!!

YOU can benefit from it all!!  I will share with you information about building YOUR brand, getting it on your blog effectively, using Instagram, building followers on your Facebook Fanpage (building one if you don’t already have one), YouTube marketing, list building, webinars and more!!

I will be putting together a series of videos for YOU.  (Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel or the Blog) So that the information is there and ready!  Already here at CRC Online Marketing there is a lot of valuable info!  There are our 5 Day Crash Courses on a variety of topics — a crash course is a short email course.  Search around right here!! Pick up what you need!!

Instagram is a vehicle to Live the Dreaminstagram

Today, I set up my Instagram account.  Okay, it is totally basic right now.  At Live the Dream V April Marie Tucker shared great information about generating leads using Instagram.  I have to say, I am behind here.  CRC has a great YouTube presence, Google+ presence, Facebook presence and Twitter presence but Instagram — we are just getting started.  BUT, I did another webinar today!! and you can take that one too (for free!)


Follow me, because I am going to EXPLODE my Instagram over the next few days and weeks and I will let you know HOW my lead generation goes.

The real point of the entire weekend was that leads are key in building the dream and living it!  Without business growth you do not have a business.  Generating new leads, having effective systems for follow up and resources that benefit those leads turns into new business.

Marketing SYSTEM to Generate Leads

Generating Leads is a Must for Home Based Business Owners

Do YOU have a system that works? Does it work to attract YOUR business partners to YOU? OR Do you have to go out cold calling and searching for them?
Attraction Marketing System

Have you ever wondered why some people find success marketing their home business while others struggle and struggle along…never getting anywhere!

I’ve wondered that forever… and only recently found out the answer in a HUGE way!

I Found This Video Training That You’ve Got to See…

Leads are the bread and butter of business, without new leads turning into new customers businesses fold.

Most are frustrated going to friends, family and trying to build their team.

This video reveals the 3 MUST-HAVE steps for Internet Success…


Here’s the thing…the Internet is a wealth of resources…but most of us don’t get it right.

In fact, most of us only get one or two steps right. The Internet is a BIG place and there are “experts” all over it. In fact, I’ve been studying it and how to use it to build my business for a years.

IT can work for you and for me!!  It takes a system — this video reveals just that.

ALL 3 to get financial freedom.

This video shows you how to complete all of the steps super easy, and start earning huge income…

Okay — here’s a brief overview of what you will see:

One of the major steps that you MUST have is a way to earn HIGH commissions, and the simplest way to
do just that is to sell your own products…

So that YOU keep 100% of the profits!!…

Learn more about how to sort of get around this step…while still getting to earn the same amount of
money as if you had your own products…


Lots of people are working hard to sell other people’s products as affiliates and that is one way, but in this video…. you will see a different way!

While that’s a great way to make some descent cashola…the fact is that the faster… surer path…
is to sell your OWN high priced products.

However…that’s not all that easy. To do that you’ve got to have those products created. Its fun and cool to have your own product — but it is a lot of work! Takes time! And YOU have to be an expert.

Now, I’ve created products and written books but it takes time to make it all work!!

On top of that you’ve got to have a solid and proven marketing campaign, plus the sales funnel for selling those products.

So… already just at that step of the game…you’re falling behind and catching up is NOT easy!!

However, in the video…they give you a way to earn high commissions with resell rights to selling high
priced and already highly sought after products, by the biggest names in the industry!!

HOT PRODUCTS that SELL!!  And YOU keep 100% of the profits!!

You’ve got to see how this is possible…and how YOU could be earning these commissions almost


But there’s more, because it is not just selling products that makes you money… there are other parts of this system that help you to build your existing business and team.  But, really you just need to watch the video.
