Increase Traffic & Sales by Redecorating Your Web Site.

The use of the right colors on your web site can actually increase your sales.
When people see certain colors they can
change their emotions or they can symbolize things related
to the colors. Here are a list of colors with some emotions
and symbolizations they can cause:

Red – love, excitement, warmth

Pink – romantic, affection, sensuality

White – purity, peace, perfection

Blue – sky, water, travel, freedom, truth

Purple – royalty, dignity

Black – space, night, authority

Green – money, calm, envy, greed

Silver/Grey symbolizes security, reliability, intelligence, staid, modesty

Yellow – light, purity, understanding

Orange – autumn, youthfulness, fire

Brown – wood, comfort, strength

Its very important to know which emotions or symbolizations
will trigger your target audience to buy your product or
service. The colour used on your website could determine people’s first opinion of it. People see certain websites and say it looks really cool, that is because of the appeal which it projects to the reader or viewer.
If your selling a money-making product you should
use green colors to represent money or bring out the emotion
of greed. People also associate comfort and travel with
money so you maybe want ad in some brown and blue
colors on your web site.

Do not however take this information to mean that
the color(s) of your website is an end in itself, No, it is only a means to an end. There are so many other things that determine whether your site looks presentable, professional or not for instance some website designers struggle with how to organize images, links and content in general.
Websites that are viewed as clustered or rough usually put off your visitors.

The same principle can be applied to graphics or pictures
of your product on your web site. Package your products
with colors that will trigger your audience to b.uy. If your
selling a book about how to be more romantic, use red
and pink colors on the cover. I hope these simple web
site color techniques will increase your business’s sales.

Happy blogging

20 Great Tools for Tracking Social Media Marketing

Welcome to the home of information.

You can now submit your articles to us  jetheights@yahoo.com.

Join us on FacebookTwitterDeliciousStumbleUpon or simply become a fan on Facebook.

Social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter make it easy for people to come together and share opinions,experiences and thoughts on a number of topics. Smart companies understand this and are using the power of social media to connect and inform their customers, and potential customers. Referred to as “Social Media Marketing”, it’s a smart way to open the lines of communication between you and your prospects.

Social media activities run the gamut from Blogging, micro blogging sites such as Twitter, social networking communities such as LinkedIn and Facebook, video and music uploading sites, discussion forums, photo sharing and more. With so many different sites and ways to participate, it can be difficult to keep track of all your efforts.

Participating in social media doesn’t take a lot of money, but it is very time consuming and businesses want to know that all of this investment in time is paying off. Before launching a campaign, you should have a firm grasp on what it is you’re trying to accomplish. Is it increasing website traffic? Getting more ezine subscribers? Having more people download your free ebook or whitepaper? Or maybe you just want to work on your company’s brand image. Whatever it is, you need to have a plan. As the old saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never get there”. Have your game plan intact before getting started in marketing yourself, or your company with social media.

There are many different forms of social media, so it’s impossible to use them all. Pick three or four, and funnel the majority of your efforts there. Even if you won’t be working them all, at the very least you should claim your name or company name on as many social services as possible. You don’t want to find out later that someone has the user name that you want. If you need to see if your chosen user name is available try http://namechk.com which checks dozens of social media networking and bookmarking sites all at once to see if it’s available. Claim your name now so you won’t end up being sorry later.(Don’t say I dint tell you. lol)

So how do you monitor all the buzz? How do you monitor your brand and protect your hard earned reputation? I thought you’d never ask. There isn’t one fool-proof method but there are many services and tools out there that will make it easy to see who’s talking about you online. Some are free and others will make you pull out your wallet.

These “online reputation management” tools, as they’re often referred to, will help you to define keywords, or phrases you wish to track and then watches for any mention of your company name, products, or services.
