Avoid These Costly Mistakes

Make sure you register your own domain (www.yourwebsite.co.uk) so that you own it. Some web developers will offer to do it for you but then you may not have access to it if you want to move your website away from them.

I’ve seen people be held to ransom by their ex web developer.

It’s easily avoided.

A brand new domain with no history needs to prove to Google that it’s a reliable and great source of information.

This takes time and means older more established website can climb the rankings much faster.

If you need a return on SEO and you’re paying someone to do it for you just make sure it’s not too early.

I personally manage millions of pounds of ad spend over the past 18 years in financial services.

Our clients with the most reviews on Google and/or Trustpilot get cheaper leads and better quality.

I could run the same ad to the same site with less reviews and it would cost more and attract lower quality enquirers.

People want to work with an adviser that have helped lots of people before them.

If you don’t have a reviews to display I wouldn’t waste advertising budget until you have.

Pretty websites don’t convert!

In reality it’s substance over style that wins the day when it comes to converting website visitors into enquiries.

If you want or need enquiries from your website then you need to think more than just the first impressions.

Things We Do To Make Your Website Generate More Leads

What do I look for first when recommending website improvements?

Displaying the total number of 5 star Google and or Trustpilot reviews.

Referrals are brilliant leads, they already know you’ve helped someone successfully before. This is how you could replicate that feeling.

The referral is a great lead because people know exactly who they are going to deal with.

My next website tip is to try and replicate that and sell your people not the brand, or prioritise the people over the brand.

Don’t give your website visitors form fatigue!

Make it really easy to get the information you need (not want!)

You wouldn’t believe the difference in quality and quantity of web leads by changing a few simple things.

One of the three main places we display Google and/or Trustpilot reviews is in the sidebar.

The sidebar is normally on a content page along the right hand side of the main body of text.

It reinforces how good you are and how you’ve helped lots of people before.

Why Do Firms Choose The Lead Engine To Design Their Website?

The most common reason is that they are sick of buying leads and want a sustainable way of generating a pipeline of quality and profitable leads to grow their business.

We have built several financial services websites that (with our marketing support) consistently generate quality leads via Google search. We have clients who have worked with us for years and continue to grow their pipeline monthly.

This means there’s no big outlay at the beginning.

Because we work with a number of different networks we understand the compliance process for each and can launch websites quickly, getting them signed off by compliance first time.

Which Financial Services Do We Work With?

We work with financial advice businesses like mortgage brokers, financial advisors (pensions, bridging and equity release.

How Much Does A Website Cost?

Most of our websites don’t have an upfront lump sum and are paid for monthly alongside a marketing support package.

We have developed packages from DIY (for new businesses) to Hybrid (small established firms) and Agency (multiple adviser firms).

Our DIY package is also a great option if you “just want a website” (without marketing support).

We have some agreements (discounts) in place with multiple networks and AR’s so check with your BDM or network marketing team.

How Do I Get A Quote For Website Design

We like to speak to people to see if we’re a good fit for them before we make a proposal or suggest one of our packages. Please get in touch if you would like to see some case studies and have a chat about your website.
