Creating a Client-Attracting Professional Web Site
Confused about how to make your site better? You're not alone!
Most Independent Professionals (consultants, coaches, trainers, writers, designers, financial and employment professionals, etc.) want a better web site - a web site that actually helps attract more clients. But they have no idea how to do this. They don't know where to start, what to do and how to make their web site truly effective.
Not only can you have a great web site that pulls in new business, in the process of creating this web site you'll build a solid marketing communication foundation for your business that will serve you for years to come.
But how do you do that? Where do you start? Here are the most important elements of a successful web site:
Quality Content - Everyone says that content on a web site is important, but what content? What should it say and how should it be written? What are the most important pages and how should they be arranged? And should you do all the writing or get someone to help you?
Functional Design - Nobody wants an ugly site or a site that distracts from the content, but what is good web design anyway? Is your site design hurting you or helping you? How do you find out? And should we design our own web site or find a designer; and where do you find (and manage) a good one?
Clear Navigation - We all know navigating around a site is important but how much navigation is too much or too little? Should navigation buttons be in text or graphics? And should we put lots of links in our sites or just a few? How do we guide people in the right direction so they don't get lost?
Stimulating Action - Wouldn't it be great if more people who visited your site actually took some action, picked up the phone, filled out a form or sent you an email? But what exactly do you have to do to get people to do this? Do you have to manipulate people or can you be a little more low-key and still get results?
Free Information - If a lot of people signed up for your free report and eZine, you'd be delighted. You have value to offer; why aren't more people taking advantage of it? Do you need to make a different offer or is it how you set up you sign-up page? And how much free stuff should you give away on your site anyway?
Web Site Traffic - And is it possible nowadays to get listed high on the search engines to drive traffic to your site? Is it even worth the time trying? Are there other ways to get the right kind of qualified prospects visiting your site? Can you generate word-of-mouth about your site by doing the right things? And will these things cost any or much money?
These are exactly the kind of questions people have been asking me about web sites for several years. I finally decided I needed to answer them conclusively. And I created the Web Site ToolKit to do just that.
"I just wanted to let you know that I purchased your Website Toolkit a few months ago and I've implemented a lot of your suggestions. Since updating my website using what I learned in the Website Toolkit and the Infoguru manual, my website has taken off. In January 2005 I had no visitors to my website, yes a big fat zero! Since August, I've been averaging over 6000 unique visitors every month. I didn't have an email list in January and now I have over 1500 people on my list. I send a newsletter every other week and I'm averaging 3-5 new subscribers every day. My traffic ranking at alexa.com was over 2,500,000 at the beginning of the year and this week I'm now at 96,312 and climbing fast. My Google page rank has risen from 0 to 4 since August when I implemented most of my changes." - Ted Prodromou
I wish it wasn't so confusing - but it is. And there are some answers.
There's no reason your web site can't be a magnet that attracts new clients to your business. Many more people can come to your web site and... eagerly read what's there, bookmark the site to return later, tell their friends about the site, give you their contact information and respond to you by phone or email ready to do business with you. I know it can happen because my site and the ones I've helped to create do this day in and day out.
My name is Robert Middleton, and if you don't know me already, let me tell you a bit about me and the Action Plan Marketing web Site. I've been helping Independent Professionals market themselves more successfully since 1984. I've worked with hundreds of clients. Not only have I designed my own site, but the sites for over 40 other businesses. And I've cracked the code on what makes a site get consistent results. It's really just a matter of experience and know how.
I now attract all my new business through this web site. Each month I get over 300 new subscribers to my weekly eZine, More Clients through this web site. And the site now generates ALL my new business. I'm living proof that a quality web site with the right content and design can and will attract new clients to your business.
If your web site does better than this, this program may not be for you. But if you'd like to improve your web site, without a lot of hype and marketing B.S., the Web Site ToolKit may be what you're looking for.
The Web Site Toolkit is for you if..
You've always wanted a web site but just didn't know where to start. You want to know what exactly should go on your web site and how to get the web site design and up on the web. You want to use your web site to educate your potential clients about your business and make the most positive impression possible. You also want your web site to help you attract more clients and increase your income.
You already have a web site but you aren't satisfied with it. It's not getting you the results you want and you need to make it better. You may have some good content on your site but you want to know what you're missing so that you can improve it. You also want your web site to help you attract more clients and increase your income.

What exactly is the Web Site Toolkit and how will it help me?
The Web Site Toolkit is a comprehensive program that gives you everything you need to build a high quality professional service business web site that gets results.
The Web Site Toolkit is divided into sections that correspond to each section or key page of a web site. Included in each section is an audio tutorial that you can listen to online (mp3 and Real Audio), a complete transcription of the tutorial as a pdf, a written manual as a pdf and links to web site samples. In addition, there are links to resources such as editors, writers, web designers and useful web and Internet tools and services. But more on this below.
"The Website Toolkit is exactly what I needed. It's made an overwhelming task into a manageable one. It told me where to start! Of course the job isn't finished yet! -- but I know what I have to do, I know how to do it, and I know I CAN do it. Even better, I'm feeling much better about the "whole thing" because I have, at last, made progress." - Margaret Stuart - Management consultant - Australia
Everything you get in the Web Site ToolKit
This is everything you get. But it adds up to more than the sum of the parts. The Web Site ToolKit is the most complete program (that I know of) that is designed to help Independent Professionals create a high quality web site that will help attract more clients to your business.
1. Complete Audio Tutorial
I had interviewer extraordinaire Bill Metcalf interview me for four and half hours on everything you need to put on your web site. We divided it into ten sections that covers the exact content you need to put on every single page of your site. We also go into great detail on how to work with designers and other professionals to develop the highest quality web site possible without spending a fortune. Bill really worked to squeeze out every single principle, tip, how-to and secret of creating powerful web sites that I know.
Plus the complete 118 pages transcription of the audio tutorial in pdf format. For those who prefer to read instead of listening.
2. Complete Instruction Guide
The Instruction Guide (also divided into ten easy-to-use sections) covers all the information you'll need in developing your web content. After you've listened to the tutorial, go to the manual for the exact how-tos for developing the content for your web pages. All the manual material is online, easy to access and read.
Plus you also get these valuable bonuses:
Bonus 1. Sample Web Sites
We've included links to 92 different web pages (ten or more samples each for all eight main web pages) to give you very detailed examples of the content you should put on every single page of your site. You won't have to guess what good content is - you'll be able to emulate it by referring to these sample pages.
Bonus 2. Professional Services
Also included are contact information to professionals who can help you edit your web content, web site developers, and even people who can interview your clients to get the best testimonials. These people are familiar with my approach to marketing and web sites and can help you develop a quality site.
Bonus 3. Online Resources and Services
There are so many online resources that it can get confusing. We've narrowed it down to 35 of the very best online resources and services. We've included links to: domain registration and web hosting, web development tools, Word Press templates, tools for finding keywords, web promotion tools and resources, email tools, web marketing ebooks and courses, online payment systems, web information sites and other valuable online tools.
Bonus 4. Web Site Development Checklist.
This handy checklist will tell you what to do and the order in which to do it. This is pretty simple but it will help you keep on track while you manage the development of your site. Over 30 items arranged in the order you need to work on them.
Please note that the WebSite ToolKit is a complete tutorial for building the content of your website, plus in-depth guidelines for design and formatting. It is not a program for designing your website. We usually recommend finding a web desinger to designing your site with Word Press or Square Space templates.
"I wanted to say what a fantastic kit the Website ToolKit is. I have purchased all sorts of books, ebooks, web courses before but none of them inspired me enough to actually sit down and do the work. They all seemed too overwhelming and too technical.
"Thanks to your course I have completed the first draft of a ten page site and I'm very proud of it. I found the process so easy because of your clear instructions and reasons for laying it out that way. The home page being left to the end has really let my creative juices flow.
"Also being able to look at examples provided inspiration and ideas for some of the things I wanted to say but didn't have the words for. I hope to finalise it in the next two weeks and at last will have a professional looking website with the right content for increasing my business." Mary Taylor-Whyte - Lemon Coaching - United Kingdom
In my Marketing Action Groups, the 6-month intensive program I facilitated for Independent Professionals, we worked on web site content for three months of the program. I feel it's that important. The content of the Web Site ToolKit was assembled from the material I developed for the Marketing Action Groups. In fact, this program is even more comprehensive.
If I charged what it cost the participants of the Marketing Action Group, this program would cost $750. But I want to make it as accessible as possible to Independent Professionals. I feel $375 would be a fair price, but I know that would still limit those who could afford it. So I'm offering the Web Site ToolKit for only $79 so that any Independent Professional can afford it and start using it right away.
"The toolkit is awesome! Thanks so much for creating this product and for offering it at such an incredibly low price. The value is truly unbelievable. I am going to be insisting that all my clients purchase it." - Juliet Austin
The Value of the Web Site ToolKit
The ToolKit has the in-depth audio tutorial and transcription, includes 92 examples of web sites and has links to dozens of resources, services and tools. I promise you'll get more than your money's worth and that the ToolKit will make it a whole lot easier to get your web site completed and up on the web.
Something else people tell me about the Web Site ToolKit is that the value they get from it is way beyond the creation of a web site. What you get is clarity about your business, what exactly your business offers, who your idea clients are, what your services are, and how to communicate all of this clearly and concisely.
In the process of developing the content of your web site you'll actually be taking an advanced course in marketing communication. Once you've completed the ToolKit, you'll be speaking about your business and services with more confidence and persuasiveness. And once you have have built this communication foundation for your business, the rest of your marketing becomes much easier.
"Well, I finished the Toolkit, taking notes the whole way. I kept a pad of paper and a pen at hand all the time and was constantly writing down ideas as they came to me - quite a challenge while driving!
"It's now in the hands of my good friend, a trusted proofreader and editor. She is making some minor changes to the copy and tightening the HTML so that the design of the page supports the text without distracting from the content.
"In all, this has been a wonderful experience which has helped me develop my business model. I plan to "open the doors" on August 1st, and the newly improved website will be an integral part of my marketing campaign. I'm very proud of my website now, and believe it is award-winning in both content and design. Although not the first site I've created, it's by far the best. And that, sir, is thanks to you." Yours sincerely, Beth Cox - Senior Designer - Things Done Creative Services
