Golf instruction online

The internet certainly changes how things are done. Take golf instruction for example. In the past if you wanted to learn how to play golf, you would go to a golf club or driving range an pay a “pro” to give you some lessons.

Now you can take a lesson right on you computer, over the internet. GolfLessonAcademy.com offers group and private golf lessons via web cam. With a high speed connection it is just like taking a golf lesson in person – but you don’t have to worry if it’s going to rain or if it is day or night. Online golf lessons are scheduled throughout the week.

How do I get people to buy from me?

Buy now

In previous eCommerce articles, I touched on website success factors and doing business on the web. Now, I will look at how to win customers and make them buy your product or service.

Many Purposes - One Goal

When you surf the internet you’ll find web sites that:

  1. sell products or services
  2. educate or inform
  3. provide interaction or a forum for discussion.

Some web sites encompass a combination of these, but all web sites have one purpose – to convince the viewer to participate. User participation requires at least one of the following: registration, interaction, communication, purchasing, at the minimum–reading.

So, how do I get people to buy from me? Read the rest of this entry »

Word of Mouse

word of mouse

Maybe the title Word of Mouse is not such a great play on words, but it is the new word of mouth.  Of course word of mouth advertising has always been a highly influential way of marketing for getting or losing customers.  The internet has changed WOM. 

Remember bookmark this page, tell a friend, or web rings?  All had the goal of getting people to return or come to a web site.  In the past, maybe 50% of people found a website by a referring link versus a search engine result. Now with the hoards of websites people have to search through and with which you must compete, seaches are an important gateway.  Search results however, don’t instill a warm and fuzzy feeling about a website – searches provide cold hard results.

How about Flash

I know you’ve seen them, those Flash websites with sounds, music, and great image transitions. They are cool, pretty, like a TV commercial, and engaging.

So, should you have a Flash (rather than an HTML) website?

Don’t get me wrong, I love viewing Flash websites… well not all of them, but the well done ones – yes.  Just because it looks cool is Flash appropirate for your website?  That is the critical question. Read the rest of this entry »
