Web Marketing That Works

Background and links

General web marketing themes

Asset building

Create content that will live on and add value over time.

Flagship content

  • Better always beats more
  • Create a flagship downloadable or pillar blog post that will define your business
  • For Adam, it was his Web Strategy Planning Template

Downloadable resources

  • Give away what you are already using with your clients
  • Don’t be afraid to give away tools you are charging for

Get the opt in not the sale

  • People want advice not products (75% looking to buy only 2% ready to purchase). So get people to opt in for something valuable and sell later.
  • This stat comes from these great Hubspot marketing statistics

Be generous

  • Give away as much as you can, help people and it will come back to you.
  • Adam started off doing free design for clients to get his first few jobs.
