Es un hecho que para tener éxito a la hora de implantar una estrategia de medios sociales es necesario conocer a tu clientela, y, por supuesto, a tus usuarios, para poder realizar mejores acciones que conduzcan a la conversión de esos usuarios en clientes.
Ahora bien, existen algunos aspectos que son fundamentales conocer de tus usuarios y clientes, pero, ¿cuáles son?
Pues bien, para empezar, cabe decir que los usuarios quieren sentir que la marca los trata de forma individualizada y personal, necesitan sentir que son especiales, y eso, nosotros, como marca y/o como profesionales, tenemos que tenerlo siempre presente. Por este motivo, tenemos que personalizar todo lo posible nuestras acciones, adecuar todo lo que hacemos a cada usuario.
Además, y esto lo vemos cada día, a los usuarios nos encanta saber que la marca nos conoce, que recuerda las cosas que le decimos. Nos encanta que se acuerden de nuestro nombre, porque eso significa que la marca se interesa por sus usuarios.
At this year’s Conversion Conference in San Francisco, I had the pleasure of presenting three tactics for getting more bang for your paid search buck. I say it was a pleasure, because it truly was. You see, prior to falling into this crazy world of post-click marketing, I was a pre-click kind of gal. My life revolved around SEO, social media, online PR and of course, PPC.
With the paid search world always in the back of my mind, it was just awesome to present on a topic that merged PPC and optimization so well. Plus, who doesn’t want more bang for their buck, am I right?
As post-click marketers, we understand that every click your visitors make leads them somewhere and we happen to think that should be amazing post-click experiences. The only way to make them amazing to your paid search visitors, is to ensure that they’re giving visitors the right information in the easiest to digest format.
Once you’ve identified the type of traffic you have, high or low funnel, you can then start to really think about the type of experience best suited to that visitor’s mindset and where they are in the buying cycle. This is a crucial step.
The Right Format for High Funnel Keywords
Remember, these people aren’t ready to buy, they’re seeking more information and it’s your job to give it to them…without asking for anything in return. These experiences need to:
- Stay problem-focused and solution-driven. It’s about selling the solution, not your product
- Include industry-leading proof and build expert credibility
- Serve a lot of masters coming from a wide range of wants and needs
- Please everyone without disappointing anyone
You see, the challenge with creating landing pages for high funnel keywords, is that you don’t really have a read on your visitor yet and they certainly may not know you. At this point, the goal should be delivering lots of rich content that meets a variety of complex needs without overwhelming anyone and still directing them to an end conversion (easy, right?).
In reality, it’s not easy. In fact, it’s downright hard and often requires a high degree of template creativity and content control.

As a designer, when you create a website your primary concern is how to capture the viewer’s attention without compromising the usability.
The only way to do it is by pushing up your creativity level and in order to create something truly impressive.
Colors acts differently and there is a strong concept of chromatic psychology in web design. Red, green, purple, orange…all of them stimulate the viewer’s feelings and emotion, so when you choose your color scheme you need to make a little research. A colorful website is a great choice when it comes to deliver a positive message or spread the word about an upcoming event.
These types of colors are good to raise the awareness and to capture the attention, so use them wisely because the downside can go as far as mistrust, especially when these colors are trying to promote an apparently sober idea, such as a law firm or a government campaign. In this article you can see a collection of 30 gorgeous websites which are using bright colors.

Every Last Drop
When I think about where we are with the Web in comparison to other media in history, pinpointing it is really hard. Is it like when the Gutenberg Press was just invented and we’re experimenting with movable type, or are we still embellishing pages and slavishly copying books by hand?
“Typographic Design in the Digital Domain” with Erik Spiekermann and Elliot Jay Stocks
In an interview with Elliot Jay Stocks, legendary typographer and designer Erik Spiekermann explains how he finds it funny that designers today complain about limitations in designing for mobile…
EL PAÍS mantuvo con los expertos que participaron en el foro global de los medios de The Paley Center. Los medios de información tradicionales tienen que pensar en una nueva forma de funcionar después de un siglo haciéndolo de la misma manera. “Estamos cada vez más en un mundo de información en tiempo real”, Richard Gingras (jefe de productos de noticias de Google) asegura y se muestra convencido de seguirán siendo necesarios periodistas de calidad, que serán la base para mantener la confianza de los usuarios, más incluso que las marcas tradicionales.

In my world, we think a lot about reaching affluent audiences with targeted rich media. Of course, rich media isn’t the only way to reach luxury buyers – search engine marketing is also incredibly effective and complimentary to the rich media experience. Since search is extending well beyond the desktop, brands now have to think about targeting audiences by device as well as by keyword phrase.
To talk more about this, I’ve invited my friends at Morpheus Media, who’ve just completed a study on tablet search behavior across five luxury brands, to join me here. Basheer Bergus, Paid Search
Strategist at Morpheus, shares what they’ve learned…
As designers, we already know how to communicate with users in a language they understand. Yet, we often don’t do this when communicating with those whom our work requires us to talk to every day: our own colleagues. Inayaili de León shows us why—and how we can build the human relationships and shared vocabularies we need to get better at it.
We talk a lot about building a web that’s accessible to anyone—a web that serves more of us, more fully. But are our own events and conferences as inclusive as the web we’re all working toward? Sara Wachter-Boettcher explores how we can improve the design of our own community.
