 Web Marketing Tips


Get the Most Out of Your Web Presence  
You have a web site. Weeks were spent planning, writing the content and making sure everything looks the way you want. It's online and it looks great. Now what? What can you do to start driving traffic to your site and converting that traffic to paying customers?
 
Tip #1 - Develop good content.
Your customers and search engines will grade the value of your site by the information you offer. Content should be written with the intent of educating, informing, enlightening and most importantly, getting customers to pick up the phone to call you. Providing your visitors with useful content will display your expertise, and increase the likelihood they will choose your business over your competition.
   
Tip #2 - Make it easy for customers to call you.
At ServeNow.com, we talk to hundreds of process servers and PIs every week. One of the most common mistakes we see on their web sites is the location of their phone numbers. Some sites have them hidden in the body of their content or on the bottom of the page. Other sites only list phone numbers on the contact page. A search engine will index every page of your site. Therefore, you don't know which page a visitor will be seeing first. It is important to have your phone number on every page of your site - preferably near the top or very visible.

 Customer Testimonials


What are our customers saying? ServeNow.com Testimonials...
quote I have been in business for over ten years, and have never gotten this big of a return on any advertising investment. When I first heard about ServeNow.com, I have to admit I was skeptical, but in my first three months, I earned enough to pay for over two years worth of advertising. My business used to be primarily local, but now, with the help of ServeNow.com, I’ve gone national.

It seems like every day my phone rings with business from New York, California, Denver and many other clients I could never reach before. I just can’t say enough about the results I get from ServeNow.com. I always believe your business is worth investing in, and this is an investment worth every penny. Amazingly affordable, outstanding customer service, and fantastic results, what more is there to say. Thanks again ServeNow.com.

“ServeNow.com has succeeded where so many others have failed. My web stats show you refer 75% more traffic than any other portal on the web.

My listing on ServeNow.com really took our company to the next level in 2005 and we can’t thank you enough for that!”

Keith Morrison
Alpha One Investigations, LLC
Oak Lawn, IL

"Through my ServeNow.com ad, I've obtained a government contract and a major insurance company contract. Almost all of my clients have found me through your site. My investment has paid off since day one. I've been contacted by other ad portals but none are more personable than you guys. I love you guys at ServeNow.com and look forward to working with you for a very long time."

Ada Patterson
Adante' Associates
Baltimore, MD
   
“My listing on ServeNow.com has really paid off. The second week my listing was online, I had 12 serves. Many of my serves are coming from outside my state. I have gotten calls from both coasts, as well as Canada. This is the exposure I was looking for!"

James Pitman
Mercer Island Process
Seattle, WA
“This is amazing. Just a few hours after my listing went live on ServeNow.com I got my first phone call.

I never expected results this quickly.”

Vern Wright
Arden Process Services, Inc.
Eagan, MN

 
“ServeNow.com has been very good to me. My advertising has more than paid for itself. I get a high volume of process serving calls, but I have also received a lot of investigative work through ServeNow.com.”
