Your website’s home page is a lot like an online dating profile. You painstakingly pore over the copy and design, making sure each element shows your company in the best possible light. You strive to capture all of your most attractive qualities. It’s a balancing act: You need to appear capable and enthusiastic, but not desperate or overzealous. And much like a hopeful Tinder user, you have mere seconds to persuade a browser to investigate further.

Also, like a dating profile, your home page can be your company’s biggest turn-off to potential prospects.

Here at Kuno Creative, we’ve discussed some of the least attractive home page design features. Today, we’re going to take a look at the most common copy fails that will increase bounce rates and drive your audience into the arms of your competitor.

Before any software sale is possible, a customer must learn that your product exists. Awareness is Step 1. Once you have a prospect’s attention, the next hurdle is understanding. For many businesses, that part’s straightforward enough—if you sold soap, no one would ever be confused about what your product does or how it works. But for SaaS companies selling complicated B2B software, the hurdle’s a big one.

Look around. Is your mobile device within arm’s reach? If you’re like most Americans, the answer is probably yes. In fact, whether you realize it or not, you probably treat that mobile device as a body appendage, feeling naked or “off” if it’s not around.  

In today’s world of instant notifications, news updates and texts, it’s not unusual to have a completely digital relationship with someone. And if you think about it, your brand probably has purely digital relationships with your customers or prospects.

Digital relationships aren’t necessarily a bad thing; they serve a valuable purpose by keeping your audience engaged. But sometimes to get the most out of your content, you have to go back to the beginning—the personal relationship. And that’s where public relations content can help.

If you've been thinking about incorporating inbound marketing as a way to educate your buyers and promote your brand, your head is in the right place. 

The internet and the mobile revolution have transformed the way consumers search for a solution to their problems, compare their options and  decide to buy. Inbound marketing is a way to meet your prospects where they are and join the conversation they're likely already having—long before they ever talk to a sales rep. 

And by and large, it works—if you're willing to commit the time, effort and resources needed to see it through. Inbound marketing is a marathon, not a sprint. It's not for everyone. If your company is desperate to see immediate results, it may not be for you. Or at least it should not be the only strategy you rely on.

So how do you know if it's a good fit? Here are 10 questions to ask before diving into inbound. 

Build Brand Trust With Educational Healthcare Marketing

False or exaggerated claims always make for bad marketing, but medical manufacturers have to walk a more delicate line than most companies. If the government decides you’re making claims that fall outside of what the FDA says your products do, you could face serious consequences.

The False Claims Act (FCA) was first implemented to punish companies trying to defraud the government during the Civil War, but in recent years has frequently been applied to punishing healthcare companies that make exaggerated claims about what their products can do for customers. Nine of the top 10 FCA cases where plaintiffs were awarded the biggest fines were against healthcare companies.

Part of what makes FCA rules for medical manufacturers so tricky is that it’s not just about avoiding false claims, it’s about avoiding any claims at all that the FDA hasn’t already approved. That can put some pretty strict limitations on what you can do in your marketing.

7 Reasons People Unsubscribe From Your Email Marketing

Oh, email. It’s one of the top things we professionals love to complain about—second only to traffic, unreliable Wi-Fi connections and the length of time it takes to disembark a plane. (Seriously, though. There’s got to be a more efficient system.)

But as much as we bellyache about our over-stuffed inboxes and ruthlessly delete unreads, we expect our customers to rejoice with each new email marketing communication we send their way. And, somehow, allow ourselves to feel deflated by an ever-climbing unsubscribe rate.

It sure is comfy here in our glass houses.

Did you know a whopping 85 percent of manufacturers report using social media as a content marketing tactic? They are using platforms such as SlideShare, YouTube and Facebook to create inspirational and educational content that indirectly promotes their businesses.
