Pay Per Enquiry - It's time to change the game!
It's very easy to generate clicks through to web sites. There are so many practitioners out there, organising clicks through more or less valid campaigns that they are quite literally falling over each other. Generally, there is a cost per click involved, which can be very high in many cases. OK, you can cap your spending on this, but what that means is that once your site has used up one thirtieth of its monthly budget it 'disappears' for the rest of the day.
The clicks may come from thousands of miles away, outside your sphere of operations, they may have been clicked by people who are not looking for what you do, or have any intention of doing business with you. They may be curious, they may be confused. Somewhere lost in the midst of the hubub, there may be customers, but they could be few and far between.
Let's forget all about clicks for the time being. Let's consider enquiries instead. Real, relevant, viable enquiries that can turn into business for you. They come from an area where you operate, they ask a question about what you can do for them and there is a genuine will to buy. Let's talk about those for a while. In short, let's consider value.
Such enquiries are the main goal of every advertising campaign. They open a dialogue that gives you the chance to convert them from questions into orders. The web, being just another advertising medium in this respect is no different.
Let's consider a world where those are the only things that you pay for from your web site. They are not merely clicks, they are human beings who want what you do and are prepared to pay for it. They are the reason and the justification for having a web site in the first place. They are the life blood of your business.
The Village Websmith's Pay Per Enquiry programme is simple. You get a web site that is professionally built, maintained and updated, using your own graphics, stories and pictures where available. The site is promoted by us through every means at our disposal and the enquiries come in directly to your mailbox. Spam, unmissable offers of fake watches, Russian dates and prescription medicines are filtered out at source, leaving only the meaningful responses from potential customers for you to follow up. You get one monthly bill based only on the number of enquiries received, multiplied by the enquiry value that was agreed at the outset. The only other cost to you is your domain registration, which is annually £15.38 for .uk domains and £25.54 for .com, .info, .net etc..
