Good Morning Entrepreneurs. The idea of a money-back refund or product guarantee is not a new one. Who hasn’t head “if you’re not satisfied with our product, simple return it within 30 days and we’ll refund your money?” or how about “Try it for a week, If you’re not happy, return it and we’ll refund the full purchase amount, less shipping.” These are your average, run-of-the-mill, boiler plated guarantees. At first sight they sound reasonable, but I think they are equally flawed, Why? First, they admit that the customer may be dissatisfied or unhappy. If you’re delivering the promised experience, this can’t happen, right? then, they place a time limit on satisfaction. If you’re confident, this is never necessary.
Finally, they both guarantee to refund the initial investment, but neither does anything pay back the customer for his aggravation and disappointment. You must make your guarantee more effective, because it is an essential ingredient in all marketing communication. The governing rule is simple, that your guarantee is your promise. It is meant to remove, not merely reduce, the buyer’s risk. I will share you some tips to get it right, you need to reconsider time-sensitive refunds, so extend yours longer than anyone else in your industry or if possible, for the lifetime of the products. Let prospects try before they buy, no strings attached. Provide free samples of your product and service. Offer a no-questions-asked full refund plus a suitable amount just for trying.
That said, there are some exceptions you may consider, example, if your run in a 12 week course, you may not want to offer an unlimited guarantee because it may encourage some people to drop out of request a refund if they decide not to the required work.

So What Do Consumers Really Want?
Good Morning Entrepreneurs. People want to love and be loved. They want to enjoy good health. They want to be entertained. They want to be popular. They want to keep their children safe. They want to be challenged. They want to feel sexy. They want to look young. They want to be rich. They want their pain to stop. They want more freedom. They want to save time. They want to be respected. As you have probably noticed, these desires are intangible, and they can’t be manufactured and packaged neatly inside a glass bottle.
But a host of others, lie at the heart of every purchase people make. They may but a feature, such as fast car, an ergonomic char, a glossy lipstick and a real estate course, but what they are really buying is the benefit. Therefore effective marketers must learn to communicate benefits rather than just features and one of the most difficult things for many entrepreneurs to do. That’s why it’s so important to take as much time as you need to find out what your targeted prospects really want, not what you want to tell them.
It’s mot necessary to compile a long list, quality matters, not quantity. Just make sure the benefits you identity are accurate and important to them, not you. Trust me, consumers could care less about how long you have been in business, how many computers you have, or whether your company is family owned and operated. Additionally, overused phrases like “friendly service” and “quality products” are meaningless. Please be specific, and once you have uncovered your product’s or service’s key benefits, look them over and ask yourself if there’s anything on the list that is a truly unique benefit, one that few of your competitors offers. If so, you have just completed the first step in developing your own unique selling proposition or we call it USP.

Ways To Optimize Your Web Site
Good Morning Entrepreneurs. Happy Monday Morning, Today, we discuss on how to optimize your website. We will talk about Keywords and Phrases. Keywords are those elusive but vitally important words and phrases that internet users type into search fields when they are hunting for just about anything. Your keywords are the building blocks of all of your marketing efforts and they contain the power to make, or break, your ability to get the right traffic to your e-commerce site. That’s why you must be willing to spend the time and effort necessary to make sure they contain an accurate description of your product and service and are commonly used by your target audience. In order for search engines to find you, you will need to include your most powerful keywords in various places on your web site, your headings, anchor and footer text, and along side photos and graphics. But don’t overdo and if you have been using the internet for a while you probably remember landing on web pages that contained words or phrases that were used over and over again, even when they didn’t make sense! Years ago many internet entrepreneurs used this tactic to increase their keyword density, it’s actually the percentage of specific keywords versus all other words on the web page. So why? Because in those days search engines equated higher keyword density with increased relevance, which meant that pages containing the most were bumped close to the top of the results list. This, of course, translated into more traffic, right?
This is not the case today. Overloading your website with keywords will not help you and if the search engines suspect that you’re stuffing your website inappropriately, it will actually hurt you. While it’s important to use keywords frequently and appropriately throughout your website, so I suggest that you limit your keywords to no more than a 3 to 5 percent density ratio. You can double-check your keyword density for free on www.keywordDensity.com. Additionally, you should use no more than one or two different keywords or key phrases on any given web page and save your most important ones for your home page. Here are some guidelines that will make you use keywords effectively. I suggest you use a keyword search tool, to help you discover which ones your targeted prospects use most often, check www.Wordtracker.com or www.KeywordDiscovery.com. So begin by choosing keywords or phrases that you would use to search for your products or services and let the tools help you from there.
Kindly check out your competitors, so visit their websites and read their pages carefully to discover what keywords and phrases they are using. You can also use related search options, these are available through the major search engines as well as smaller ones such as www.Gigablast.com and www.Vivisimo.com. You may also place your keywords in paragraphs, headings and bulleted lists. Also position your keywords up front in your page copy. Incorporate your keywords into your internal and external links. Kindly run your own searches, use keywords and phrases in your domain name, and avoid keywords or phrases that are too generic. Don’t target individual keywords and mix up your keywords.
I hope today, you learn something today, to optimize your website to get that traffic and search engine ranking you deserve. Check out some more tips and guides on how to grow your online business, visit @ TalentCloud.Asia. Till next time, see you.
