When it comes to online marketing, you have to realize your consumer has been trained to believe they can find anything they want at the click of a button. However, you need to be aware of how easy or difficult it is for people to find and share your content. So, here are six tips to be sure your content is being seen.

Front and Center

In a world of instant gratification, people are turned off if your page is difficult to navigate or slow to load. If you want the customer to buy something on a page, make sure you put the purchase button front and center so it is easy to find. The more buttons a consumer has to click the less likely they are to get to the end purchase.

Direct Links

Pinterest is a great example here. If you have Pinterest, you have no doubt seen a pin, thought it was the most amazing thing you have seen, clicked on it only to find it just takes you to a homepage. As someone who has been there, this is frustrating. This is true for any linking your do whether it’s in a blog or in a post, make sure you take the consumer to the exact page you are talking about.

Be Interesting
