Problem: NP’s notoriously fall prey to paying what are often exorbitant fees for online auction services, often from 15% – 50% of their auction proceeds (problem #1, the charitable cause ends up with less than 100% of their auction revenues) . Worse, these fees are really paid by their auction winners (the source of the auction proceeds), but the money is siphoned off the winners’ bids without their knowledge or consent. If bidders new this, they would likely be upset at best, or feel alienated, at worst (problem #2).
Cache, cache, cache. Browser caching stores cache versions of static resources, a process that quickens page speed tremendously and reduces server lag. When a user visits a page on your website, the cached version usually displays unless it has changed since it was last cached. This means the browser saves a lot of requests to your server and improves load speed for your site.
PROBLEM: Does this sound familiar to you: “I thought I was a great parent … Then I had kids”? Let’s be honest. Being the best parent possible sounds great … as long as everyone cooperates and everything comes together. The truth is … For most of us, things don’t always go as planned. That’s when we suddenly meet parts of ourselves we never knew existed. It may feel as if a stranger — someone who yells a lot and feels constantly stressed — moved in. And we have no idea where that person came from and would like for him or her to disappear.
Some business owners are moving away from the term “marketing funnel” because they think it’s too mechanical or simplistic to describe the lead nurturing sequence by which customers move from awareness to purchase. I think it’s still a useful way to describe a complex process and it’s a good visual to imagine the entire process from start to finish.
Speaking of hotlinking, you should not just disable it, but you should avoid it altogether. Instead of linking to images on someone’s website, load them on your own server. You may think that image links will save you a lot of bandwidth, but they can actually slow down your website if the website with the image you linked to is slow and unreliable. What’s more, they may experience downtime or crash, so always load every image on your own server before you link to them.
If you sell B2C, chances are, your best buyers live in the best neighborhoods. If you are a consultant, dentist, accountant, chiropractor, real estate broker, financial advisor, or a restaurant, consistently go after the folks who live in the best neighborhoods. They are the wealthiest buyers who have the money and the greatest sphere of influence. If you send them an offer every single month without fail, within a year, you’ll have a great reputation among the very wealthy.

My name is Ayat Shukairy, and I’m a co-founder and CCO at Invesp. Here’s a little more about me: At the very beginning of my career, I worked on countless high-profile e-commerce projects, helping diverse organizations optimize website copy. I realized, that although the copy was great and was generating more foot traffic, many of the sites performed poorly because of usability and design issues.
You can easily merge this tactic with your livechat support. Solving customer problems goes a lot quicker if you can refer them to articles that answer exactly the question they have. It doesn’t even have to be you the one referring them. Whenever our livechat at Salesflare isn’t manned (we sleep sometimes, you know), the bot will suggest the customer to check out articles from the HowTo section. Creating tons of content around your product is also great for SEO.
It's not a cure-all for the entire web. For a relatively austere site like Apple.com homepage, made up primarily of images that don't depend on one another, Polaris doesn't show substantive gains next to using plain vanilla Firefox. Then again, sites like that tend to load quickly to begin with. It's when web destinations get more feature-filled that Polaris really kicks in.
You only reach the advocacy stage of your marketing funnel once your customers become fans. As opposed to merely being a business from which they can buy products, you want to be a brand that they talk about and share with their friends. How? By offering them the same kind of high-quality content you provided them with initially but tailored to their customer-type.
