Believe me, if your potential customers are interested in a product, a service, then they will look at the page with your contact information. Look at our contact page as a landing page for client requests. In terms of sales, this page is one of the most important on the blog.
On the first thing to note is the presence of at least two ways to contact you. If a phone number is a big plus, as it increases the speed of responses and decide if a customer called you, alternatively, you can use Skype. In addition, of course, be sure to specify the e-mail address, this type of communication is most common on the Internet.

Everyone knows that the reviews are a terrific aspect in the growth of the authority, attracting and retaining customers. However, in the long term, the customer wants to see the fruits of your work already decided earlier tasks.

An example of your work and it is clearly written article will show your unique set of skills in the context of the project the real client. Once a customer expresses their satisfaction, we ask him to take part in our “research”, leaving the link and review the work done in the “success page”.

- Social networks, how to attract and keep customers today
Be sure to select a social platform, to further interact with your audience and potential customers. On the blog, use additional plug-ins, widgets that reflect your presence in social media.
From the experience of many freelancers, I learned that messages, announcements of articles on specific customer problems generate additional orders.
Make sure that you have created your audience in a social network for business before to be active on the blog. The idea is to demonstrate social proof that other appreciate your experience. It is hard to sell a product, if you have 10 readers on Twitter. Be patient.

- Blogger – Person
Build a blog so that the reader has seen not only the services, the products, but also the man who is behind it all. The customer is important to see your partner – seller.
Create a page “About Me”: tell us what you are doing, that they are willing to offer, why you are unique. Do not write about yourself in the third person! Use a conversational style that would have to build a relationship and show that you are available. It is important to understand, offering their services, products on the Internet with a blog, you need to learn how to sell themselves, I doubt that now, someone wants to work with an unknown person, just read on the topic: “Why do you need Twitter for business.”
