So we've attracted customers in step 1, we've engaged with them in step 2, we've really built up that know, like, and trust factor. Now, we need to move them into our sales funnel. The first thing you need to think about is how do you sell? Again, a lot of people who say they have a conversion problem with social media actually have a conversion problem with everything.

Google Places and Google Maps

Google Places (http://www.google.com/business/placesforbusiness/) is any business’ way into a free listing on Google Maps, which gives a listing and small page to every business it can find, (whether you directly sign up for one or not). This is known as your Google Maps page or listing. You can enter a 200-character description as well as add ten images and five videos. You also select your categories and add a few more details as well. Things are always changing at Google and although you can still enter all this information, they do not display it all.

Google Analytics Features

A common question people have about their websites is “How do I track how many people come to my site?” This is not an easy question to answer, as it depends on how you qualify one visitor, among other factors. If your mom comes to your website 15 times in one day, does that count as one visitor or 15? Also, if you can get information about how many visitors you have, what other information can you get? This information is commonly called analytics. A web developer can use this information to see how their website is being used and change and maintain it accordingly.
