In This Issue:
We'd like to congratulate The Outpost at Cedar Creek for being the winner of this month's free hosting site. At the beginning of each month we will call up our own site's homepage. Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.
By the time your read this, all of our client's e-mail
services should be switched to our new mail system called Squirrel Mail. The
biggest change is that the size allotted for your mail account has gone from
10Mb to 150Mb. This should help alleviate mail being rejected because your
inbox is full (exceeds the 10Mb limit).
The increased capacity will help our clients that routinely deal in large attachments sent to them by e-mail.
If you currently have e-mail sent from your Web site forwarded to your HotMail account or Yahoo! account (for instance), you may want to take a look at our system and its capabilities. We've set up a test account for you to explore and see the many features available. Use these settings:
Username = firstname.lastname@example.org
Password = 1234
One of the best ways to convert visitors to your site
into customers is by using a call to action. A call to action is a statement
that makes people commit to a decision, such as 'Subscribe Now' or 'Get This
Offer' or 'Make Reservation NOW!'. It serves to remind the visitor why they
came to your Web site. Place them toward the top of the page. For those
users that want to click, it allows them to find it easily. For those who
are still deciding, it's a great reminder of what they have to do.
Glaring calls to action tend to get the best results. Don't have several useless links on the page that will take the visitor back into your site; rather include the links that will get them to actually purchase your product/service or consummate a reservation.
Help these folks by visiting their site. All ya'll will remember how hard it is to get those initial "hits" so the search engines notice your site. So take a minute and visit their site.
