Marketing Your Website

What's New ?
Auto-Responders & Fulfillment Pieces

The number one complaint regarding business websites is, "I never get a response" or "It took days for them to respond to my email". We have all been on the opposite side of this problem. You visit a website and send an email with an inquiry and never hear back from the site owner or it takes so long for them to respond that you have already found the answer to your question. It can be
frustrating.

Most of us won't return to a website whose owner is unresponsive to emails. The real question is are you that website owner? Do you ever find yourself replying to one or even two day old emails (excluding weekends)? If so, there are a few things you can do to professionalize your response.

Auto-responders are a great way to let prospective customers know that you received their email and take it seriously. An auto-responder can automatically notify an individual that inquires through your website that you will respond, when you will respond and that you value their inquiry.

Match your auto-responder to a fulfillment piece and you have created an atmosphere of professionalism that is seldom rivaled on the internet. Your auto-responder can provide a link to exclusive online content, information, discounts, catalogs etc. that are only available to those who inquire. This not only creates one more contact with a prospective customer, it also provides the inquirer with additional information about your business while they wait for your personal reply.

Is this starting to sound expensive? Well it isn't. You already have the ability to create auto- responders with your website email account, and you can do it for free. The exclusive content may be a uniquely informative brochure, a small discount certificate, a catalog that provides information about your products that isn't found anywhere else or any number of other creative items. A link to
the exclusive content can be provided in your auto-responder.

Make certain the exclusive content is of high quality. Many brochures and informative booklets can be reproduced as PDFs which makes them easy to download. Be creative, unique ideas will help you stand out from the crowd.

It is important that your auto-responder state when you will be replying to their email and you should be certain to reply within the time stated. An auto-responder only takes a short time to set up and is sent every time someone uses your contact form.
Throwable Cameras?

Bounce Imaging has come up with a camera that can be thrown in to danger zones to gather information for Fire fighters, Policemen, Soldiers and more.

These low cost cameras and sensors can be used for search and rescue missions in collapsed buildings and post disastor landscapes.

Bounce Imaging is striving to make these cameras affordable ($500-$1000) so they can be widely used and distributed.
