Specials! Deals! Coupons!

Drive Traffic! Create a Buzz! Get more Sales!

We all just love a good sale don't we? Sales and coupons get people motivated to make that call and book your services or purchase your products.

If you check out a lot of the mega corporate business web sites you'll notice that they've always got some sort of deal, special or coupon being advertised on their website. So we should probably be doing the same, right? Clearly, it's working for them.

Aside from the obvious reason of posting coupons or specials on your site, there is another reason to keep your site updated with specials: this tells Google that you are keeping your website fresh with new content, and it will be more likely to rank your site better because of this. So do it for better ranking! 

Here are 3 ways to create coupons, and advertise specials on your site making your site more interesting, intriguing, keeping it up-to-date, and hopefully generating more business for you.


There is a way to create a coupon in your website

Once you're logged into your website, you can add a coupon from the add-in bar towards the top of your website.

From here you can see that you can customize a coupon that will be on the site. You can change the color and even add a photo in the background or into the coupon.

Once posted, you can move it up and down on your page. This is a very quick way to create a coupon. Tip: If you select auto renew, it will automatically update your site, letting Google bots know that your site is staying fresh with new content. Remember: stale websites lose Google ranking.


We offer a service where we can put in what's called a "pop up" or attention-getter into your site. This is something that appears on top of your website, or pops up on any side of your site that advertises a coupon or special. This can be an incentive to collect their email address, or simply something that leads them to your contact page, gets them to fill out the form for a percentage off of your services. Or any other creative thing you can think of. 

Here are a couple of examples (these are sure to get attention!):

Here are the different positions they can appear on your site: (top, middle, bottom right, entire page take-over, small bell in bottom right, or sliding in from the side of the site)

As you can see, these are a great way to get attention on your site and advertise specials, motivating people to fill out their email or give you a call. These can be added in for a 1-time fee of $15. 
Here is the link to get started on adding these into your site:


This option may require a bit of a small investment, but I believe it will be well worth it. Simply come up with different coupons and specials for your business. Then hire a graphic designer or find someone on (here are some options HERE and HERE ) and have them create some really creative and eye catching coupons for you, don't forget to have them include your website address so people know where to go for more information.
 Then upload whatever sale you're running at the time onto your website. Make sure to keep it updated. The last thing you want is for a customer to land on your site, and inquire about a sale that you are no longer running. You will have to honor the sale regardless of the fact that you may not be running it any longer.

The next thing you will want to do with these graphics is post on your local "buy and sell" pages through Facebook and try to post weekly. (Here is a video I found on how to find these types of groups on Facebook: )
You may want to have at least 5 different types of specials or coupons. Get creative. Do a Google search for inspiration. 

On your Facebook post make sure to include your website address so people know where to go for more information. 

You can also get these graphic printed into flyers or door hangers or postcards, whatever you want. then start passing them out, leaving them on doors, cars, local shops, whatever will work for your business industry. 

Remember: Consistency is the KEY!

Bye for now!

Get on Yelp to get found!

Boy have times ever changed... A long time ago, you could put a website up on the web with fairly good SEO, and get found in searches and get traffic to your website. But times have changed. Competition is much more fierce. The web is flooded with websites. Industries are saturated with millions of fish in the sea all wanting the first page of a web search. And I don't know if you've noticed or not, but Google has been displaying things different in their searches. It used to be, if you were to search for something, first would be the paid ads, and then the websites with the best SEO. Now when we search, we get 2 kinds of ads first.  Then comes the Google my business listings. This is important. If you don't have a Google my business listing for your business, you wont come up in this list. But then what comes up are yelp listings. This is even more important. And where I'd like to pause for a minute.  Since yelp is what shows up n

Gaining A Competitive Edge

Today I'm going to share a tip with you that's going to help you gain a competitive edge when it comes to dominating the first page in search results. This post goes along with my last post about 2018 Google search rank changes. This information is going to be particularly useful for service-based, and more specifically home service based businesses. This will also be particularly helpful if you're still not ranking on the first page of searches. But regardless of what industry you serve, you can still give this a try! As stated in my last post, Google has changed the way they display search results.  After the paid ads, the next section Google will display are the Google My Business listings. If you don't currently have a Google my business, you should set up your account HERE . Sign in with your gmail account tied to your business. The next results will typically be yelp. So once again, set up your yelp page and make sure you get everything filled out o
