The average website visit lasts only seven seconds. Have you planned how you use that precious time? .. Didn’t think so.

I don’t know if you’ve ever been to a speed networking event. I have. In the short amount of time allotted you have you need to nail a few simple things.

Simple – but important.

  1. Communicate what problem you solve.
  2. Explain why you can be trusted.
  3. Tell them how to engage you.
  4. Exchange business cards ( key! ).

In a speed networking exchange you have 60 seconds for this. Online you have only 7 seconds!

A great web designer will help you get points 1, 2 & 3 nailed. ..Sometimes. But if you can’t exchange business cards …

Getting the contact details of website visitors should become you’re top priority.

Why? – Because you get more TIME with them.

In speed networking you will never sell anything. But you might seed a relationship which grows into your best client.

Get the contact details of a website visitor and you can nurture that one visit into a customer for life.

How are you using the 7 second visitors? What are you offering them? Are you buying more time?

This post explains a little of how you can start doing it. If you’d like to explore how you can rapidly increase your sales using the Gravity Digital Sales & Marketing framework then just get in touch – I’ll walk you through it.
