April 1, 2020
The theme Sally had chosen for her website was a visual masterpiece. Gadgets, gizmos and glitter oh my.
And even though it’d taken longer, been WAY harder (and cost her far more time, money and sanity) to build than she’d expected, she was chuffed with the final result.
And there it was: Hanging out there in the Wide Wonderful World, doin’ it’s webby thang and showcasing some serious style.
And there she was: Refreshing her emails, checking if her broadband cable was still connected (it was) and worrying herself silly with conversion conundrums.
Because. Why. Wasn’t. It. Converting.
When the answer – and solution – was simple …
Looks weren’t everything.
But – gulp – Sally had picked a website theme purely for its prettiness – when she should have focused on something else entirely.
Wondering what it is? Keep reading, my clever friend.
In the Age of Anxiety (yep, I’m calling it), your audience are looking for meaningful solutions to their stresses.
Sure, they might temporarily self-soothe with something pretty. And ‘pretty’ is easy to find. With just a swipe of a finger and a click of a button, you can be enveloped in a world of pretty.
But pretty is pretty disposable. Pretty is pretty shallow. Pretty is pretty superficial.
Pretty might catch their attention – but it won’t capture their heart.
It’s the one before The One.
And if your (and Sally’s) legendary target market are gonna commit, trust me: They’re gonna hold out for the business, website and offering that’s MORE than just pretty … but that has meaningful substance too.
They don’t want a one-click stand – they want a happily ever after with a website that saves the day by giving them #allthefeels (and every reason to convert).
So if being just pretty doesn’t convert … what does?
1. Appearance (Yep, pretty does play a part – it’s just not the whole show.)
2. Copywriting (aka the words and content.)
3. User experience (aka the strategy and digital journey you take your website visitor on.)
When those three elements work in harmony, it’s angels singing and conversions ka-ching’ing.
And while Sally had ‘pretty’ downpat, she’d fallen short on the other two conversion qualities.
Not because she was a horrible writer and didn’t empathise with her visitors, but because the template she’d chosen didn’t allow her to effectively showcase her copywriting and user experience.
And because her theme was fairly static (i.e. inflexible), she had to anxiously cram all her business, website and content into the EXACT teeny-tiny space her theme allowed.
She didn’t have the freedom to create a website that met HER needs – let alone gave her any semblance of creative or strategic autonomy.
Instead, she was stuck with a website template that barely had space for an image and paragraph of text on the ‘about’ page (which is nowhere near enough content to connect with her audience), let alone had the flexibility to fit her and her visitor’s unique needs.
She also struggled with:
I’ve seen Sally’s story time and time again.
I don’t want you to be Sally.
I want you to be Cass, a creative copywriter who after her new brand and Showit website went live turned creativity into cash and got a 300% return on investment in just 48-hours, started converting 90% of new client contact submissions and doubled the average time a visitor spends on each page of her website.
I want you to be Steph, my launch specialist client who successfully tilted into a new niche, elevated her digital game and brought in $250K+ within 7 months of launching her brand and Showit website.
I want you to be Emily, my marketing coach client whose new brand and Showit website (using my Penelope Template) saw her sell out her high-end mastermind in just 1 day.
I want you to be Erin, my photographer client whose new Showit website saw her book $9500 worth of work within 24 hours of launching.
I want you to succeed – and kick those conversion goals!
