Utah CRM Solutions
Customer relationship management software

solutions vary for every business vertical. Every industry and business relates to their customers in different ways so their software needs will vary as well. The interface for a real estate brokerage would be very different than the CRM interface for a manufacturing enterprise.

Before the internet-based CRM business solution was refined and became readily available, a small company had a choice of buying software, hiring a dedicated IT staff and buying and continually upgrading hardware to run the CRM software. This was not cost effective and unfortunately the CRM solutions were not even configured for the business.

However, the small and medium business not able to step up and pay for the custom hardware and software deployment have the alternative of using internet based CRM software solution, like Business Catalyst. The CRM business solution can be configured for the business size, interaction types and even automated marketing initiatives. All that is required is an internet connection and a web browser.

The per use fee or the monthly fee is affordable and can be budgeted for making the profits realized sooner from the installment of the customer relationship management software and not funds spent on software and upkeep. While smaller and medium sized businesses may eventually choose to host on site, internet based CRM business solutions are a good way to break into cloud computing and superior customer service and tracking. On the other hand, companies who prefer to host their data on site can benefit from a customized CRM business solution.

Integration of Email Marketing and Social Media

Braxton Tulin - Friday, May 31, 2013

With the advent of the internet and newer ways to gather and spread information, email marketing has become the core campaigning tool for any successful business. It is cost effective, very easy to use, and has the ability to hit the right target audience at the right time. Email marketing campaigns are a must for every organization, irrespective of their size and industry type. With online email marketing campaigns in place, you can undoubtedly take your events to the next level with maximum exposure and credibility.

Let's discuss the best possible ways to approach your future clients with the help of email marketing campaigns.

Zero on Your Audience
It is very important to know your target audience - their age group, demographics, location, and what they expect to achieve by using your products or attending your events. For example, you are hosting a training session on developing effective corporate communication skills. You need to first study the specific age group of people who will show maximum interest in attending your training - such as: professionals between 18 to 30 years of age. Thus, you should send out emails to people within this age group to get maximum positive response.

Tread the Right Path
Will you open an email with a typical business type subject line such as "Buy Now!" or "Register Now" - the chances are minimalistic. We usually tend to check out emails with a more friendly and personalized tone. Thus, you should write a marketing email that speaks volumes on the trust factor and has a friendly tone. Remember, your main motto is to build up a long-term relationship with the target audience. To accomplish that purpose alone, write emails with a striking subject line that will instantly make them open and read your mail. As I have said before, try to stay away from phrases like "Free Offer", etc. with the intention of increasing your event registration. Such titles may have the opposite effect leading to less registration rate in your conferences or seminars.

Keep an Eye on the Frequency Factor
Prospective customers or event attendees will delete your emails if they find too many of them within a short span of time. Hence, it is a wise strategy to send email communications scheduled keeping in mind a specific time period that should not antagonize the customer in any way. However, a long delay period may also result in the customer losing touch with the organization. Hence, it a balance that may be achiever with frequent practice. Additionally, it is always important to add a subject line that is interesting and does not sound over promotional in any way. Otherwise, they are more likely to be deleted or reported as spam.

Share Emails through Social Media
You can add a "Join My Mailing List" application to your Facebook Page to allow fans and visitors to subscribe to your email list without having to leave the Facebook interface. In this way, people will get to check your existing emails once they subscribe to it. Promote your next event via this email list. For example, write "Our upcoming event will feature a special presentation on how to use online payment solution to accept event payments? Not signed up! Click on "Join My Mailing List" tab above." On Twitter, you can use a similar strategy to promote your email list by teasing your pending campaigns and adding a link to your email sign up form.

Increase Chances of Conversion
Marketing experts usually advice on sending emails to people who have subscribed to it on your website. Generally, it is of no use sending emails to people who don't want them. There is only a limited opportunity to convert in such cases where the customer receives email communication without having subscribed to it. There is a high chance of conversion actually happening when mails are sent to those who want to receive such promotional emails.

Email Marketing Campaigns as a Tool

Braxton Tulin - Thursday, May 30, 2013

Email marketing campaigns are a great tool. They help any business keep a personal connection with their prospects and clients. But, determining the content and frequency in which they are created and sent, is a subjective decision. We are all unique individuals. Every message you send, may have quite a different affect on each recipient. So before you hit that little send button, there are several factors to consider:

Time to Redesign: The world is changing at lightning speed and so are people's tastes and priorities. We need to be open and flexible as we modify our lives and goals to meet the challenges of each new day. Is it time to refresh and rethink our email template designs? As our businesses grow, our brand and message needs to embrace those changes. Is the message and brand you are using now still relevant for today?

Dynamic Content: What makes you read something? Most of the time, we read what we are already interested in, unless we see an irresistible title or statement. Your newsletter content should reflect that type of allure. We need to capture our reader's attention with relevant and interesting content. That is why your email marketing newsletters must be targeted to the people who want to read them. Doesn't that make sense?

Within the first few lines, state your purpose. Is it a sale or promotion? If so, is there a clear and distinct call to action? Is your landing page representing exactly what they are expecting to find? Does it mirror your message and call to action? Are you sharing tips and customer testimonials? Good content must be carefully and thoughtfully planned.

Meet your Content and Delivery Goals

Are you providing your readers with some analysis or monthly tip? Are you sharing innovative ways to improve their lives in some way with your experience and expertise? Make sure the information promised is being sent and continues to preserve its value. Don't fill your newsletter with fluff. Keep your promises and content maintained with professionalism and integrity.

Don't Spam

No one likes spam. Avoid sending your newsletters to just anyone. Take the time to build up a double opt-in list. Make it easy for people to sign up for your newsletter through emails, blogs, your website, promotions, sales, and specials. Everyone wants their privacy respected. Sending unwanted newsletters can put you in the trash bin or worse, you could be labeled as a spammer. Pay attention and become familiar with the CAN-SPAM Rules for Business.

Build and They Will Come

Building an accurate and solid opt-in address list of prospects and clients, is an essential ingredient for any success campaign. Collecting accurate behavioral data will enable you to engage your target market with precision and accuracy. How can you create a successful campaign, if you do not know what your prospects want or need? Lifestyle, age, profession and gender play a decisive role in anyone's purchase decisions.

Professional Designs Save Precious Time

Running and maintaining a successful business takes time, energy, and creativity. Many of us were not born with graphical genius or ingenuity. Why spend thousands of dollars hiring a professional designer. With the purchase of an email campaign software, you not only have the choice of professionally designed and pre-optimized templates, but will automatically have the tools needed in which to measure each campaign's success. With the right graphic image for your brand, you can concentrate on writing engaging text that will inspire the click through conversion rates every business needs.

Building Relationships

Any relationship, whether personal or business, is not easy to develop or maintain. All relationships need to be nurtured, and that takes time. You need to engage your audience in a personal way. This is where social media marketing can be a real partner to your business. Creating a blog on your website and signing up for a Facebook page, gives you a strong start towards a more intimidate form of marketing. If you are not too familiar with social media, do your research. You can easily hire writers and bloggers to express your visions online.

Today, consumers want to chatter. They are expressing themselves everywhere. Take advantage of all the open doors and windows of opportunity to converse with and connect with your prospects and clients. If you do not, your competitors will.

Direct Email Marketing for Small Business

Braxton Tulin - Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Direct email marketing for small business should focus on incentivizing customers to act. It should provide them with a reason to move forward, a reason to entertain making a purchase and ultimately, a reason to inquire. We are all familiar with the "call to action" that marketing loves to say is such a vital part of a successful marketing strategy. Well, that requires a message that not only reaches its intended audience the way it's suppose to, but a message that provides insight into the company's product and service offering in a way that distinguishes that offering. Email marketing is one of the more inexpensive forms of marketing and a vital tool for small business owners who want a cost effective way to reach their customer base. So what are some of the more proactive approaches to email marketing? More importantly, how should that email marketing strategy be put together in order to achieve the best possible results?

Use Email for Discounts:

Direct email marketing for small business must not only incentivize customers to act, but it should also keep those customers coming back for more. One of the more proactive ways to get customers to move forward is to use email marketing for discounts on outdated inventory. Inventory is an expense that all companies, big or small, need to control. Email marketing can help small companies liquidate their outdated and antiquated product offering. In addition, it can be used to get rid of excess raw materials, spare parts and finished goods.

Use Email for Sales Promotions:

It's not always about getting rid of excess inventory, but also about helping to launch that new product line. Email is a fantastic tool to help with new product launches and introductions. Small businesses can use email campaigns to provide their top tier clients with the first shot at buying a new product. That opportunity can come with a discount and promotion for being a preferred customer. When companies want to get their new product launch off the ground, they often turn to email marketing to get it going.

Use Email for Customer Reward Programs:

Another use of email marketing is to promote existing customer reward programs. Small businesses can keep their customer base up-to-date with their existing credits and values within these programs. Consider it a statement of account, except in this case, it's a summary of the customer's accrued credit based on prior purchases. Email marketing can also be used to provide invaluable insight into a customer's current balance on these aforementioned reward programs.

Use Email for Educational Purposes:

What ultimately allows a company to dominate its market? In order to answer this question, think of how market leaders are always viewed as companies whose market knowledge and expertise is vastly superior to its competition. Email marketing can help small businesses appear as experts in their field, a valuable source of information and the first place to call when confronted with issues of a technical nature. The right email campaign can be used to educate a customer base, and this will always position the company as a leader in its market.

There are a myriad of uses for email marketing. Small businesses are able to use email marketing to retain existing customers or pursue new ones. What's ultimately required is a willingness to use the platform to its fullest. Educating customers is one benefit, but equally important is using email to build customer loyalty.

Direct Email Marketing Campaigns

Braxton Tulin - Tuesday, May 28, 2013

For a lot of businesses, direct email marketing campaigns have become the heart and soul of their sales. Blood, sweat, and tears go into creating useful content and cool symbolism. Finely targeted campaigns take some time. They must strike just the right segment, at the right time, obtaining those click through and buy rates, which is an integral source of income. So what remains to consider prior to hitting that send button? - The subject line.

Whenever emails arrive in the mailbox, the recipient immediately sees two things -- the sender's email address and the subject line. Within a few moments of its arrival, it is either opened or trashed. Seems a bit severe and unfair, well it's. But with the typical Internet user being bombarded and overwhelmed with legitimate and spam mail, you can certainly commiserate with their dilemma.

Why do you buy the paper, open an online post, choose between a large number of events to read? - The headlines. You skim through the paper, the Internet, and your magazine, looking for that interesting and engaging story. You want something to grab your attention. Think of your subject line as that award winning headline, capturing and engaging your recipient to open your email. Of course, it is unmentioned that once opened, the content ought to be relevant to what you have advertised. No one wants to be mislead. You can employ a qualified company that specializes in direct email marketing campaigns to do this for you.

All of us have experienced really engaging subject lines. The effect is intoxicating. We must read the entire story -- and read it right now. If we don't, it'll bother us until we do. Imagine watching a movie and your cable bombs out. Not knowing how a story finishes can drive you insane. Maybe this is a bit of an exaggeration, but wouldn't it be great if your direct email marketing campaigns had that kind of effect on your readers?

Direct Email Marketing Campaigns

Here is a list of ideas. With the right creativity, give the subject lines inside your campaign the advantage and exhilaration they need to get opened and read:

1.Sharing Secrets: What precious metal investors don't want you to know

2.The Tease: Home owners were shocked to find out

3.The "How To:" How you can earn income without leaving your house

4.Creating Emergency: Save 35% - offer runs out today

5.Intriguing News: Apple iPhones are replacing laptops according to

6.Authoritative: According to Marketing Sherpa

7.Testimonials: Why Donald Trump prefers online sales

8.Individual Benefits: How exercise changed my life

No matter what method is used, the goals are the same. A direct email marketing campaigns should be the catalyst of new leads that produce sales. The marketer sends out valuable information, that is relevant to their clients and prospects. They respect their recipients' privacy and weigh their marketing campaign frequency.

Converting leads as well as prospects in to loyal customers, is not easy. It takes time to acquire someone's trust, which must be earned, over the test of time. Catchy subject lines, great services and products, just continually be backed with a company that has integrity for direct email marketing campaigns. That is the best strategy and the best foundation for achievement.

Social Media and Email Marketing Integration

Braxton Tulin - Monday, May 27, 2013

Social networking sites have grown phenomenally over the past 10 years. A recent report on the websites that attract the most traffic worldwide saw FaceBook (considered the face of modern social networking) ranked second, ahead of Yahoo and Bing and only behind search engine giant Google. It is thus not surprising to see social media gaining greater prominence in the internet marketing discourse.

Businesses cannot ignore such a large audience. But social media is should not be viewed as a replacement of older internet marketing techniques such as email marketing. Rather social media should be viewed as complementary to traditional online marketing methods if the business is going to realize sustainable results.

Social media, despite its reach, provides less flexibility to the online entrepreneur than email marketing does. The objective of joining social networking sites should thus be to gradually transition social networking fans, friends and followers, into the email marketing subscription list.

Social media is intrinsically tied to email. All major social networking sites such as FaceBook and Twitter send an email notification when a private message is sent to you or when another person comments on a photo or a post you had made. Members of social networking sites rely on email to monitor updates.

Because of this frequent checking of email, online marketers can use this as a way of regularly drawing attention to their email updates and newsletters every once in a while. The rationale for this is that even when people do sign up for an email newsletter, it is possible that after some time they will stop reading the emails.

By posting the headlines on your social networking profile a few days earlier or raising expectations through a brief write up of what readers can expect, you can increase interest in the content of your email when you do send it, and in turn your online sales.

Social media is however not only useful for persons that are already on your email marketing list. It is also a great tool to rope in new subscriptions. However, this is something that requires a careful and mainly tacit approach. Constantly urging your profile friends, fans and followers to sign up is usually viewed negatively and will only put them off.

People will be more inclined to signing up for your email newsletter and buy your products if you take a professional but collegiate and participatory approach. Use your profile to talk about interesting topics that are related to your line of business. For instance, if you are selling umbrellas, you may talk about how getting caught unprepared by a sudden downpour on your way to work can impact on your day.

If you must encourage people to sign up for your emails, then you must keep requests few and far between. Such requests can come with a preview of the content of your email a week or few days before you send the mail. Then follow this by providing a link to your subscription page for anyone that would want to read the content of the email newsletter in detail.

Web based Email Marketing Software

Additionally, the application should give the business owner the flexibility of developing separate campaigns that target individuals on the email marketing list, based on their responsiveness to previous emails.

Over the past few years the power of social media has been seen in the business world. It is just as important that any piece of web based email marketing software include social media integration.

Email Marketing Lists

Braxton Tulin - Tuesday, May 21, 2013

When businesses want to market themselves they often create e-mail marketing lists to promote products or services to current clients, invite in potential clients, and/or to keep in contact with past clients. Customer contact is imperative to keep a business growing. If customers don't know about or forget about a business and its products or services they will go somewhere else to obtain similar products or services. Don't let this happen to your business.

There are two basic types of marketing list managers, the first type involves using a third party hosting company and paying a monthly premium for a service, and the second type is investing in a self directed e-mail marketing software program where the purchaser is the manager in conjunction with the capabilities of the software.

When comparing the two types of services, it is easy to note that the third party hosted service requires a monthly payment to operate, and in contrast the self directed software program only requires a fee for the purchase of the software. Even though both involve a start-up cost, the self directed software offers so much more, for example, there is not a limit or fee when a client lists as there is with a third party hosting company. Also, when using your own actual software you can keep track of past e-mails and archives efficiently and never have to worry about losing precious data or contact information. Unfortunately, that is not the case with a third party hosting company, if you stop paying the monthly premium your information is lost and information can very rarely be transferred from that database to a self-directed software program.

Email marketing software has earned a reputation for reliability and success. Top quality email marketing software is a wonderful self-directed resource to help manage basic mailing lists via internet, which is great for small businesses. There are many benefits associated with this type of software but here we will outline a few key advantages:

-Provides a messaging archive system
-Provides a confirmation of the subscription and sends a confirmation of the subscriber
-Allows an unlimited amount of subscribers and lists
-E-mails are personalized based on the subscribers contact information
-E-mails can be tracked to see if they have been opened or not
-E-mail addresses can be banned, if deemed necessary
-Can add or remove subscribers at any given time

Another great thing about this software is that it has the ability to translate e-mails into various languages for even greater usability reaching a multitude of clients. All these beneficial components can easily assist any website administrator in operating a business marketing system in both an efficient and professional manner.

With the help of e-mail marketing software, an individual or business can manage and create mailing lists for multiple clients and services. The software is also equipped to handle the problems and issues that relate to a company's site, which takes most of the guesswork out for any users that might not be very tech savvy. Top quality emailing marketing software also ensures deliverability, thus providing reliability because it is able to take care of any mailing problems that might arise.

Advantages of Bulk Email Marketing

Braxton Tulin - Monday, May 20, 2013

The competition for limited consumer dollars in today's market and the cost of direct postal mail, print and media advertising has caused most businesses to look for alternative ways to market themselves.
Bulk email marketing software has made bulk email marketing a popular less expensive marketing option. Bulk email marketing campaigns can be targeted to a relatively small subscribers list of existing customers or the bulk email marketing campaign can be aimed at a larger group of potential customers.

Bulk email is when one email is sent to multiple, sometimes hundreds and often thousands or tens of thousands, recipients. Although not all bulk emails are spam many spam emails are sent using bulk email software. As a result of the spammers abuse of bulk email software many consumers will not open an email sent to them from a source they do not recognize and many email recipients will have automated spam filters that will trash a bulk email without ever sending it to the recipient's mailbox.

Prior to bulk email marketing software many marketing campaigns used postal mail to mail customers and potential customers marketing materials. Direct postal mail required the company to have the marketing materials designed and printed and then on top of those costs the company paid postage costs to have the marketing materials delivered to an addressee. There was no assurance that the mailed marketing materials would reach the intended recipient particularly in a business where a mailroom or secretary sorted and delivered the postal mail.

The advantage of bulk email marketing compared to direct postal mail marketing campaigns is obvious. Bulk email marketing software offers a much less expensive alternative to direct postal mail. The bulk email software allows materials to be designed in house and sent automatically for free across the internet to the targeted email addresses within seconds.
You need to evaluate the specific advantages for your business. If you have a good balk email marketing software and a list of customers or others likely to be interested in the product or service you are marketing and if your campaign goals are met with a fraction of a percentage purchase-conversion rate a direct email campaign is likely to be a good option for you.

If you are going to use a bulk email marketing software research shows you need to keep the email marketing materials catchy, concise and to the point. Most recipients opening emails from a source they don't recognize are likely to spend less than 2.5 seconds before deciding to read or trash the email.

The economic advantages of using bulk email marketing software have to be weighed with the disadvantages. The recipient may never open the email, the email may be identified as spam by an automated spam filter and trashed and if the user opens the bulk marketing email they may chose to click on the mandatory opt-out box indicating they do not want to receive future emails from the bulk email marketing source.

Braxton Tulin - Sunday, May 19, 2013

Email marketing is a vital tool for businesses in the 21st Century, but one that many overlook. Unlike more traditional forms of advertising in the analogue' world, email marketing has the potential for even small firms with minimal resources to make a significant impact. To understand how, you need simply consider the benefits that an email marketing campaign has over traditional offline methods.

1. Market more for less

Billboards, newspaper adverts, television slots and even mail shots can cost a significant amount of money.

Email marketing meanwhile requires a fraction of these resources and can be successfully undertaken by a single individual.

2. Communicate instantly

One of the major benefits of email as a tool for communication has always been the time (or lack of it) that it takes for a message to reach its recipient. Within seconds of clicking send', your email campaign will be sitting in prospective customers' inboxes. This is of particular benefit for time sensitive offers, and can be used to remind customers when the deadline for a special deal is coming to an end.

3. Create dynamic visual content

Emails have always been about more than just words. Hyperlinks within the email that lead to specific web pages create a uniquely dynamic user experience. Unlike a direct marketing letter sent through snail mail, the recipient has only to click once to gain instant access to the content you wish them to view, whether it's a particular product, details of an upcoming offer or anything else.

4. Reach anyone, anywhere

The Internet has made the world smaller. Today even companies with only modest resources and influence can reach a global market at no additional cost. Rather than being limited to your immediate backyard, region or country, you can reach prospective customers on the other side of the world, easily and affordably.

5. Benefit from forwarding

Email is not a solitary medium. People like to forward messages to their friends that they think might interest them and share them on social networks. Email enables you to readily exploit the enormous potential for reach and influence offered by social media and viral.

6. Build relationships

A weekly or periodic email newsletter is a great and inexpensive way to build lasting relationships with customers, potentially resulting in higher repeat sales and stronger loyalty to your brand. It can also enable you to generate a significant amount of interest in upcoming products or special offers.

7. Target specific customers

Another thing that the Internet has given consumers is greater choice than ever before. By giving your customers the choice of opting into receive emails on specific elements of your business and products that interest them you can be sure that your marketing is reaching the right people.

Email enables you to send these contacts highly targeted content, even dynamically, based on their registered interests and preferences and based on their contact history, buying patterns and online behavior. Automatically triggered campaigns can also ensure you send the right message to the right person at the right time, with no need for human resourcing.

8. Gather customer feedback

For any business, listening to the needs and opinions of customers is essential in ensuring that you are offering them something that they want. Email gives your customers the chance to communicate with you with very little effort, providing you with valuable information on what your business is doing well and what it could do better.

9. Track your campaign

On top of this potential for greater volumes of customer feedback, email marketing enables you to easily access dynamic information on the success of your marketing campaign. With email marketing you can keep track of how many emails were delivered, how many were opened and how many were acted upon. Many email service providers enable you to track activity down to individual recipient level, so you can see what a named individual has done on receipt of your email, and follow up accordingly.

10. Green credentials

Finally, using  email marketing instead of conventional mail shots and other paper-based methods can boost your green credentials. By using an electronic delivery system like email to drive your marketing message home, you'll also be saving substantial amounts of money on expensive hardcopy print.

Conversion Optimization Utah

Braxton Tulin - Thursday, May 16, 2013

Usability encompasses both site structure and site skin - what visitors actually see. Site architecture should be designed to accommodate visitors in several ways. Ease of navigation is, certainly, important. But so is page weight. Visitors just won't wait for long downloads anymore.

An easy-to-use, flexible and secure checkout, with numerous payment options, increases a site's usability. And a one-click checkout is an ideal usability option that repeat buyers appreciate.

Accessibility is another aspect of site success. Is the text helpful, informational and easy to read or is it just hard sell content? Are navigation links large and clearly labeled? Is a site map available from every interior page?

A recent study published by DoubleClick.com indicates that more than half of all visitors who place something in their shopping carts fail to actually make the purchase. These buyers made the purchase decision, but there was no follow-through. Perhaps they found the check-out process confusing, or lacked the confidence in the site to enter personal information on line. The point is, something happened between purchase decision and final checkout. Chances are, lack of site usability was at least partially to blame.

Additional Benefits to Improving Site Usability

improving conversion rate is, indeed, the primary objective of site refinements to enhance usability. However, site owners derive a number of on-going benefits in the regular development of useful site metrics.

Analytics will improve download times, increasing the likelihood of visitors staying around. Pages packed with animated graphics, Flash scripting and QuickTime demonstrations can be broken up to lessen download times.

With a highly-usable site that delivers everything visitors need to complete the MDA, site owners will lower costs for customer support and service. If a visitor can log-on to view the status of an open order, there will be fewer telephone calls to customer support.

With conversion optimization, routine site maintenance costs will be lowered. The site is visitor friendly, SE friendly and compliant with all open programming standards.

Finally, a site optimized for ease of use and visitor convenience generates more repeat traffic and more repeat sales. And repeat sales are the foundation of any retail business - virtual or real world.

The Process of Conversion Optimization

Metrics should be developed regularly and compared to previous results to identify the activities of visitors. They should also be developed to suit the site's purpose and MDA.

With useful metrics, a strategy of site refinement should be developed and implemented in stages. At each stage, new metrics should be produced to determine whether recently implemented refinements have had the desired effect. If so, initiate the next stage. If not, determine the problem and refine accordingly.

Remember that visitors are looking for convenience, ease-of-use, helpful information and security. The long-term objective is to increase site usability through refinement, measurement, further refinement and further measurement.

Conversion Optimization: Picking Up Where Search Engine Optimization Leaves Off

Braxton Tulin - Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Search engine optimization (SEO) gets them to the site. What they do (or don't do) once SEO has done its job is up to the site owner or designer.

Most visitors view the home page and leave. Wrong products. Weird typeface, confusing navigation - it can be anything from color motif to lack of clear prices. SEO gets them there, but it doesn't convert them to buyers.

What Is Conversion Optimization?

Is it easy for visitors to find the right product? Is checkout convenient, offering numerous payment options? Is there a telephone number visitors can call to talk to a human? If not, the site isn't conversion optimized.

In broad terms, conversion optimization enhances the visitors' experience when they visit to browse. A site so optimized is: engaging, attractive, very simple, convenient and secure. The objective?

Enable visitors to quickly find what they're looking for and to move without delay through the site's checkout - just as in the brick-and-mortar world of retailing.

How To Optimize Conversion

Undertake Regular Site Analysis

Site metrics are statistics, raw data that reveal visitor actions (or inactions) and behaviors. There are dozens of site analysis programs that create metrics to help with site refinement.

To develop useful metrics, first establish a site baseline for comparison as conversion optimization is underway. Maintain records of metrics to determine which refinements are working and which aren't.

Target Metrics To The Most Desired Action (MDA)

The first step in improving conversion rates is to define the site's objective - to sell products, disseminate information, generate click-throughs or provide customer service, for instance. With the site's objective defined, it becomes easier to develop metrics useful to increasing the number of people who perform the most desired action.

A commercial site owner wouldn't find number of pages viewed' especially useful since it's not specific to the site's goal - to sell product. On the other hand, developing a list of keywords used by most buyers would be useful. It's a great way to refine a site's keyword list.

Metrics programs generate raw data. That's all. It takes an understanding of e-commerce dynamics to turn that data into useful information, aka site metrics. And the important first step in the development of utile information is to define the site's objective.

A site owner or web designer should be able to state a site's objective in one, short sentence. If it takes more than that, redefine the site objective. Then develop the metrics that facilitates an improved conversion rate.

Applying Site Metrics

The purpose in developing site metrics is to create a databased strategy to induce more visitors to perform the MDA. It's not enough to identify problems and trends. Site owners must then take action to address problems and enhance the visitors' overall site experience.

For example, site metrics might reveal that less than 5% of traffic ever gets past the home page. In this case, breakdown the home page to find why so many visitors leave. Too confusing? Too much information? Not enough? Convoluted navigation? If only five out of 100 visitors ever see interior pages, something is wrong with the home page.

Another example? Which search engines are delivering the most traffic? And why? Is it simply page rank? Does the site even show up on SERPs?

Useful site metrics will provide data on visitor activity, search engine activity, keywords, text and layout, checkout procedures and virtually every other aspect of site design and its impact on visitors.

Site Usability and Conversion rate

The easier it is for a visitor to perform the MDA, the more likely it will be performed. If buyers don't find complete, detailed descriptions of products, they'll be less likely to make a purchase.

If they're confronted with endless data fields that must be completed, they're less likely to complete the on-line form. The ultimate objective in site analysis, therefore, is to improve the usability of the site. The more useful and usable the site, the higher the conversion rates.

LED Billboard Advertising

Braxton Tulin - Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Before the digital age, outdoor billboard advertising was limited to paper, vinyl, painted, or mechanical billboards. Now, outdoor billboard advertising has gone high-tech through LED billboards. What are LED billboards? LED billboards place ads on a computer screen. In comparison to traditional billboards, LED billboard advertising offers the following advantages: more intriguing ads, easier display of multiple ads, and the ability to place ads on buildings.

The most obvious advantage of LED billboard advertising is the quality of the ads that can be placed through it. With LED billboard advertising, ads are more realistic-looking since they incorporate video. In fact, some LED billboards actually contain full-length commercials. With this ability business owners can get more of their message out to consumers, especially if the LED billboard is located near an intersection where drivers would have to stop at red lights. Doing this gives them more time to view the whole commercial.

The next advantage of LED billboard advertising is the ability of billboard companies to display more than one advertisement at a time. With traditional billboards the only way to display a different advertisement was to take down the original one. The exception would be for mechanical billboards. If they are non-computerized, they can show up to three advertisements within a few minutes of one another. If they are computerized, (which is typical of mechanical billboards with a scrolling ability), they can show up to 30. Yet, with LED billboard advertising, there is really no limit to how many advertisements can be shown. And changing them is as simple as clicking a mouse button and/or entering a couple of fields into the computer.

Lastly, LED billboard advertising can be displayed in non-traditional areas, such as buildings or small signs. New York's Time Square and Las Vegas are excellent examples of places that have tons of LED billboards placed on buildings. In fact, the practice is also popular in Japan and other areas where high-tech is all the rage. And it should be obvious why it is popular. When LED billboards are placed on buildings, they take up much less space than they would if they were on a larger, more traditional billboard. They can also be an excellent marketing tool for the businesses, since they can show clients a commercial about their products or services right as they are about to enter the store. What other ways are there to build up last-minute shopping momentum?

In conclusion, LED billboard advertising is a revolutionary option for businesses that can afford it. It allows for more elaborate ads and the process of interchanging is much easier. They can also be placed on buildings and other locations where a smaller billboard is more convenient. Granted, LED billboard advertising has yet to replace traditional billboards, especially in rural areas, but they are still highly popular in very urban metropolises. And perhaps as the technology improves, there may come a point even in our lifetimes where the only type of outdoor billboard advertising available is in LED form.

How to select advertising images

Braxton Tulin - Saturday, May 11, 2013

Human beings portray strongest emotional reactions, which involve both positive responses and negative responses. Visuals and images play a significant role in depicting the choices, selection and feelings of humans. That is specifically why the old saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words," has more than a circle of truth to it. Usually, when you are turning the pages of a magazine or surfing the Web, the pictures are what make you stop and look. Nowadays, the images and photos are the most effective and successful in catching the attention of readers and visitors. Furthermore, those who are involved in the advertising business, having an advertising agency or web designing know that creating a magnificent product or a website full of useful and valuable information is important, but it is only one factor of success. Selecting the suitable and appropriate images and descriptions to commune to the latent consumers or visitors can result in booming success, while on the contrary choosing the incorrect images can be devastating in terms of sales and web stickiness.

Cautiously chosen pictures can help to set up and strengthen brand awareness, can help to target positioned markets and can help to construct customer loyalty. Nowadays, lifestyle photography is the major ways of conveying consumer messages and information.

Images are everything

Those who are in the business of advertising or web design understand that developing a wonderful product or a website full of useful information is important, but it's only one component of success. Selecting the appropriate images to communicate to the potential customer or visitor can result in resounding success, while selecting the wrong images can be disastrous in terms of sales and web "stickiness."

Carefully selected images can help to establish and reinforce brand awareness, can help to target niche markets, and can help to build customer loyalty. These days, lifestyle photography is the major means of conveying consumer messages so that product photography is often a small part of a print advertising campaign or a web design. So, here are few things, which you should consider while going for advertising Images.

Lifestyle photography communicates ideas

The first important thing, which should be kept in mind while choosing advertising images, is the style of photography. The prime purpose of lifestyle photography is to convey concepts and ideas. For instance, an image of waves lapping on the beach can convey relaxation, refreshment, luxury and freedom. Furthermore, picture of crashing waves can communicate protest, strength and determination. Images of still water with fiery skies can convey instability, hesitation, conflict and confusion. Photograph that depicts surfing can commune youthful enthusiasm and excitement or an active lifestyle.

Select unique and attractive Images

If your advertising campaigns or web design work comprises of life and life-style pictures you know how tedious it can be to find the correct and exact pictures to communicate your key ideas. Mainly, all, major stock photography companies have either a restricted number of images, or images that are old-fashioned. When you are seeking for exclusive images that remind the proper expressive and emotional tone, it often pays to support smaller stock photography companies, mainly those that specializes in unique and charming images. It is always advisable to pick out those pictures that will allow you to stand apart from your competition. Besides, presenting unique stock images, the correct advertising images should be capable to offer you exclusive rights.

How to Make Your Advertising Poster Stand Out

Braxton Tulin - Friday, May 10, 2013

Good poster printing can be hard to find. Some businesses clutter their posters with so much info you cannot tell what the heck is going on.

Other posters are so bare that you wonder why anyone even bothered. Here are some tips on how to create a good balance between overkill and barely-there to make your poster stand out from the rest and catch prospects' attention.

Focus your message
A big mistake that I believe stems from people wanting to get their money's worth out of their poster printing budget is to put too much info, too many graphics, just too much stuff on their poster. These are the cluttered posters I talked about earlier. You only have a few seconds to catch someone's attention and if you have 89 ideas going on in one poster, no one is going to read any of them.

Before you even start designing your poster, ask yourself what you want the poster to accomplish. Are you promoting an event? Introducing a new product? Introducing your business to a new community? You need to make sure everything on your poster contributes to that one message.

Good graphic design is key
An eye-popping photo or some kind of awesome graphic element that catches people's attention works best for posters. A rule of design is that the graphics should not upstage the content. In the case of posters though, the graphic is the content.

With only a few seconds to catch someone's attention, it is best to use a big graphic to pull them in because our brains process objects and images quicker than text. Try to make your design the main element of your poster, rather than making text your main element. If you are bent on getting details of your event or new product on the poster, save that text for the bottom of the poster. Use the top half of the poster to pull people in with few words that are huge (your poster should be readable from 20 feet away) and an interesting photo or image.

Use posters as more than lead generators
In many cases, posters are used to only draw people in. Do not get me wrong - that is their main use and great way to use them. However, consider also using them as a follow up method in your store.

Hang posters in your store that are reminiscent of the ones out on the streets or in your store windows. Alternatively, start a graphical story on one poster hanging in your store window and finish the story inside, on posters scattered throughout your store. This will intrigue people to come in and finish the story!

As with any advertisement, be honest
You should promote your business with integrity - do not lie in your posters or in any of your advertisements. As soon as people find out, they will tell their friends and family, and you will lose what could have been long-time customers. When it comes to advertising, under-promise and over-deliver.

How Reliable Is Pay-per-click Advertising?

Braxton Tulin - Thursday, May 09, 2013

Whether or not you can rely on Pay-Per-Click Advertising will depend upon the products or services you have to offer and how well you promote your website. Advertising via Pay-per-Click involves depositing some money with a Pay-per-Click advertising company. The good news is that you only pay when someone clicks into your site. With some Pay-per-Click companies, you can set the amount you wish to spend, which is good for small businesses which have a limited advertising budget.

The biggest PPC companies in the market are Google AdWords, Microsoft Bing and Facebook Ads

Prices per click start from as little as US$0.01 and rise to US$250+ and more depending on the popularity of the keyword or search terms and the popularity of the PPC company.

In order for Utah Pay-per-Click advertising to work, you need to make sure that the websites you choose to use are visible enough for the advertising to be worthwhile; in other words you need to choose the right sites where people may be looking for the type of products and services that you are selling. For example, if you sell women's shoes, it is not likely to be beneficial for you to post your PPC links on a site that sells electronic equipment. On the other hand, it might be effective to post your ads on a site that sells fashion items, fragrances, or even men's wear since many people are looking for a quick way to find clothing for all members of the family.

Make sure you fully understand the advertising policies of the Utah PPC company you choose. If you choose a company that allows you to set your own price for each click, you will probably find that your ad will appear on more sites if you are willing to pay more for the service. You want to make sure that you have control over the types of sites where your advertisement will appear. You want to be choosy so that you don't allow your ad to show on sites where people might just click through to see what you have to offer and then not buy anything. Remember, every click costs you money so it's important to target those who are interested and ready to buy, even if it may not be the same day.

Before you choose Pay-per-Click advertising, talk to other people you know who have used it to get a feel for the right company to use. Do your own research as well, reading their websites and what they offer in return for placing your advertising on their websites. Find out as much information as you can before making a decision about using this type of advertising. Like any other type of advertising, you must keep in mind that certain types of advertising work better than others, and PPC works better in some industries than others. Before investing your money in a long-term commitment, you may want to try a couple of small Utah PPC test campaigns to give you an idea of how well it is likely to work for you.

You will need to take some time to choose your keywords and phrases with great care. Remember that when someone searches for a keyword the advertisers' links appear in descending order, starting with the advertiser who is willing to pay most for the click. The obvious or more common or popular keywords for your market will also be the most expensive ones. What you need to do is to brainstorm a range of phrases that people may use to search for your product but which fewer of your competitors will have selected. Those phrases will almost certainly be cheaper to bid on and yet may also be effective in attracting targeted traffic to your site.

For that reason, the phrases that you choose are of vital importance for the success of your campaign. You can lose a lot of advertising money very quickly and end up going nowhere mighty fast if you do not test your keywords and phrases before deciding whether or not Pay Per Click advertising is for you.

How Pay Per Click Advertising Assists In The Growth Of Your Automotive Business

Braxton Tulin - Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Of the many online advertising strategies such as display advertising, SEO, etc., pay per click advertising is found to be highly effective in driving quick sales. The conversion rate is usually slow with the techniques like SEO or display ads. Hence, this strategy is recommended for quick results. In this article, we will discuss about the benefits of pay per click advertising for auto businesses.

Reaches wider audience: Like any other search engine marketing strategy, pay per click ads too reach billions of Internet users. These ads appear along with the organic search results when a person is looking for a specific keyword. You can also enhance your online visibility by placing your auto business' PPC ads in the relevant websites like auto blogs, forums, auto news sites and other auto related websites. You can place your ads across any number of search engines or auto websites or both combined, to expand your visibility.

Targets the right audience: PPC advertising allows you to have control over your audience. PPC can be both - generic (search network model) and focused (content network model) form of advertising. By opting for a search network model for your auto business' PPC campaign, your ads will be seen along with the other results that appear for a specific keyword. You can even make the search network model targeted demographically, by limiting your ads only to local search.

On the other hand, in the content network model, these PPC ads appear only in the websites whose content matches with the keyword which was searched for, giving you an option of filtering your audience. Placing your ads in the popular auto websites, will generate good traffic for your business.

Allows budget management: This is the most important characteristic feature of the PPC campaign. PPC campaign requires you to pay the advertisers only when any visitor clicks on your ad. This makes it easy to predetermine your budget and manage costs. Once your sales goals or number of leads are attained, you can stop your PPC campaigns. And you can resume them whenever you have new set of sales goals.

Moreover, as every ad is specific to a keyword, the cost per click of the ad depends on the competitiveness of the keyword used. The more competitive the keyword is, the high the cost per click for that ad. Hence, you can manage your budget by choosing a less competitive keyword for your ad in case your budget is less or it can be reversed, in case you have high budget.

Cost effective: Unlike other advertising campaigns, you need not pay search engine or a website management for displaying your ad; instead you have to pay them only when your ads are clicked by the visitors. This is, hence, also called as cost per click campaign. On obtaining the required return on investment through sufficient sales, you can stop your PPC campaigns. As PPC is also a targeted means of advertising, the clicks have high potential of getting converted into sales, which avoids the need to pay money for useless clicks. This makes PPC highly cost effective and efficient.

Can track results instantaneously: PPC ads are not only functional in advertising your auto business, but also help you in tracking the success of your ad campaign. Based on the number of clicks for the ads, you can determine the effectiveness of the keyword. On tracking the success of keyword, ad placement and the design, you can make the necessary changes immediately so as to make the PPC ads operate at maximum levels. Depending on the success of the campaign or the limit of your budget, you can pause/resume/run as many campaigns as necessary.

Though SEO is highly preferred for top search results, it takes several months to produce results; whereas, the PPC is highly effective in driving immediate sales. Therefore, it is suggested to consider PPC advertising, till the SEO efforts begin to give results.

Google Adwords Advertising Strategy

Braxton Tulin - Tuesday, May 07, 2013

While Google AdWords advertising is not for everyone, I don't think anyone could turn down $100 of free advertising for their site! Google offers all new clients a $100 coupon to try out their services. There's absolutely no commitment to carry on, no automatic billing should you forget to cancel, no deposit, just good old fashioned free money! Simply contact a Bennion Marketing representative for a "Google AdWords advertising $100 coupon"

But, it Costs too Much!

Free coupon aside, the main complaint of most people who try Google AdWords advertising is the cost. People will pay several dollars per click through for some high competition keywords. That's like paying several dollars for one visitor! I have a technique to lower that cost. I woke up this morning, logged into my Google AdWords account and saw an average of $0.14 per click, much better.

Lowering Advertising Costs

The key to lowering the cost of click throughs is with Banner advertising. While this takes a little more time to setup, you can generally hit highly competitive keywords at around 5-15% of what it would cost you for text ads. This is still the same highly targeted traffic as you would get from those text ads. I want to address two concerns you may be having right now:

 You don't have to have a fancy expensive graphic design studio to make banners - you can download a free graphics design tool called "gimp" that you can design your banners with

You don't have to be a graphic design artist - I designed all my banners myself and I have zero training in any artistic discipline, it's simply about getting your message across. My click thorough rate is around 0.37% which may seem low, but considering the average banner click through rate of 0.2 - 0.3%, it's actually pretty good! (Source: Wiki Click through Rate)

Optimizing Banner Campaigns

Here are some general tips that I have followed to get decent click through rates at a low cost per click with Google AdWords advertising.

Keyword Research - focus on 2-3 main keywords that are 100% related to what you want to advertise. Copy those keywords into the Google AdWords Advertising Keyword Tool to get some more keyword ideas. Try and build up 200-300 highly targeted keywords, as specific as possible to what it is you are advertising. This doesn't have to be done all at once, but try and start with 50-100.

Banner Design - it's even more important to focus on your banner's message than keyword focusing. You want visitors to click on your banner that are interested in exactly what you are advertising. For example, if I am advertising whey protein isolate, I want my banner to convey exactly that. Not whey protein, not protein, not nutritional supplements, I want people to click on my banner that are specifically looking for a whey protein isolate.

Bidding on keywords - Google AdWords advertising works on keyword bids. You specify the dollar amount you are willing to pay for someone to click on your banner. I generally keep the same bid for each keyword, but you can manipulate each keyword bid individually for more targeted keywords. Start off low, around 15c. If you don't get any traffic after 24 hours, increase to 20, then 25 etc. until you get the level of banner impressions you are comfortable with.

Banner Population - Google AdWords advertising allows you to upload various sizes of banners - you want to upload at least one of each size! This is important. For your specific market, people might be focusing on a 728x90 size banner, maybe a 250x250? Who knows? You want to exploit the banner size that people may not be using, or not using as much. For me it was the 300x50 size banner.

Here are the Google AdWords advertising accepted banner sizes:

 300 x 50 Mobile Leaderboard
 468 x 60 Banner
 728 x 90 Leaderboard
 250 x 250 Square
 200 x 200 Small square
 336 x 280 Large rectangle
 300 x 250 Inline rectangle
 120 x 600 Skyscraper
 160 x 600 Wide skyscraper

The main key here is focus, focus, focus! Google AdWords advertising can be very successful if you generate the right type of traffic - targeted traffic. If you are general with your keywords and banners, you will get exactly that - general visitors, not specifically interested in what you are advertising!

Offsetting the Cost

I generally offset at least 50% of my Google AdWords advertising costs with another Google product, Google AdSense. It's basically the flip side of AdWords, you get paid for people clicking on ads you put on your site. Also flipped is the way I show these ads, I only show text ads because I receive a lot more revenue from text ads than banners.

One word of caution, apply Google AdSense tastefully to your website. I have one ad in my side bar and one at the bottom of each article. Do not plaster them all over your website if you wish to use Google AdWords advertising - especially not on the landing page that people click through your banners to. Your banner ad will not get approved until Google deems your site suitable.

I also want to stress something else about approvals. It used to be that the folks at Google AdWords advertising would approve my ad in a matter of hours. Recently it has been 3-4 days, so be patient when submitting your ad and realize it may be several days before it goes live.

How A Proper PPC Advertising Campaign Works

Braxton Tulin - Monday, May 06, 2013

PPC advertising is essentially a type of advertising model where advertisers pay website owners for hosting their advertisements for every click that the ad generates. It involves the use of keyword phrases, which are relevant to the business niche. PPC can be a very complicated advertising model and since it is very time-consuming, some businesses don't bother with it anymore, especially since they don't profit from it as much as they would with other advertising methods. However, if PPC is utilised the right way, a business can earn very large profits from it. Below are some tips on how to properly go about a PPC marketing campaign:

Learn How to Prioritise
The reason why most businesses don't profit too much from PPC advertising is because they prioritize the wrong things. Most businesses aim to reach the number one spot in search engine results even at the expense of their profits. You are advertising for profit, so profiting from your advertising ventures should be your primary priority. Work on getting your return of investment first before aiming for number one.

Learn How to Properly Use Geotargeting
Geotargeting is important in online advertising, as it helps you reach your target demographic easier. However, some don't know how to properly use geotargeting. While you have to narrow down your demographic, you also have to ensure that it is not too narrow, or you may end up reaching a very small number of people. In the same manner, you also have to ensure that it is not too wide.

Be Creative
The key to advertising is catching the consumer's attention. You can easily do this by ensuring that your ad copy is unique and creative. You also have to ensure that it encourages consumers to make a call of action, otherwise PPC advertising won't work in bringing in large profits.

Pay Attention to Landing Pages
If you want more consumers to click on your advertisements, you have to ensure that the landing pages are worthy of their attention. Some businesses work so hard on their advertising efforts that they tend to disregard the way they present their products and services on the actual campaign site. Keep in mind that the success of your business still depends on the product and services you are offering, not on advertising methods alone.

Use Tracking Tools
One of the secrets to a successful PPC advertising campaign is knowing exactly which ads are noticed the most. You need to use tracking tools for this so that you know which ones generate you the most traffic. Having full knowledge of this will allow you to focus on advertising methods that work and abandon those that don't.

PPC advertising can be profitable if done the right way. However, since it requires a lot of time and effort on the part of the company, it is more ideal to hire the services of a professional to do it for you. If you are looking for a company to set up a PPC campaign for your business, you may want to consider using a PPC advertising company, as they have high levels of expertise when it comes to this kind of advertising model.

Free Online Advertising Services - The Desired Results?

Braxton Tulin - Sunday, May 05, 2013

During the past few years, as the Internet has grown both in size and popularity, free online advertising services have for lots of us, become the perfect way to get rid of our redundant items occupying valuable space in the garage, quickly and efficiently. Web site owners and webmasters also have been drawn to this type of advertising as an ideal way to publicize their websites, it's services and products. But the question is, do free online advertising services really serve their purpose?

To find the answer to that we have first to look closely at the ways that free online advertising services may be best employed together with the methodology of both reader and advertiser and the advantage to be achieved by both. For example, there are those advertisers who are simply seeking to sell a single item, and looking to post a short term ad until the item is sold. On the flip side, you'll find others who are wanting to attract attention to their product line or business model, who will want their advertisements to run indefinitely. Typically, free online advertising services will delete an advertisement after a given length of time, for example a month, after which the advertisement will need to be re-inserted if it is to continue to run.

To the guy who is simply needing to sell the redundant ice skates amongst those items taking up much needed space in his garage, or the lady who has become tired of her treadmill and now needs it out of her sight, free online advertising services will offer the answer. A classified ad, which can be placed in a particular, chosen category, for instance, weight loss or sports equipment may be offered to the world or just limited to a particular metropolitan location and be published and online within seconds of being published. It's quick and easy but more importantly, it's totally free.

This type of advertisements are browsed regularly by thousands of people who are almost always looking for bargains, and you can therefore assume that those who read the advertisement, in it's given category, will have a genuine interest in the item(s) on sale. Once the item has been sold, the onus is on the advertiser to cancel or delete the advertisement before it times out. Businesses using this style of advertising will no doubt want the advertisement to run continuously so will need to re-post it monthly. Including your telephone number or email address in your advertisement is in most instances optional, however many free online advertising services offer in-house contact methods for security reasons.

Web site owners and managers will typically have a different agenda when using free online advertising services. Although they will also want to attract attention to their products and services along with the targeted traffic it may bring, the added incentive here is to get a link back to their website from the advertiser's website which will generally be one part of an ongoing search engine optimization campaign designed to assist their web site's Google ranking. This style of agenda will usually attract fewer viewers, but the advertiser will hope to benefit in other ways than selling a service or product.

So, without putting too fine a point on it, these styles of advertisements do work in different ways for different people, depending on what they hope to achieve from their endeavours. A well crafted ad offering useful services and products will always fetch the attention it deserves and regardless of the advertiser's agenda, free online advertising services play an very useful role in the overall Internet experience.

Four Essential Features Every Mobile Advertising And Marketing Application Must Have

Braxton Tulin - Saturday, May 04, 2013

As technology continues to open up doors for corporations to be involved in the ever increasing opportunities for mobile advertising and marketing, developing a mobile app is essential to success.

Here are four essential features your mobile advertising and marketing application needs to deliver on that value.

One, and at times two, touches are all that people desire out of their apps to satisfy their most immediate demands.

Another essential ingredient to a quality mobile application is taking benefit of the GPS function in most smartphones. By utilizing this feature, your application can present automatic coupons that are based on visits and purchases at physical store locations. Once a predetermined amount of visits has been reached, the software can then alert the user of a specific deal they are now qualified for. This not only gives incentive for more client involvement with your software, and store, but also gives you the ability to engage with them on an ongoing basis.

Include An Instant Method for Purchases

Starbucks and other leading retailers give their application users the ability to make purchases directly from the app while in their stores. Other applications, like Amazon and Wal-mart apps, give users the ability to implement their built in shopping cart for making purchases. Studies have shown that consumers are starting to purchase more with their tablets and smartphones than through their computer. This is mostly due to the "always being connected" culture we live in today. Taking advantage of this will help you to stay within the lives of customers.
