FAQ

ANSWERS TO SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WE MOST OFTEN HEAR ABOUT DIGITAL MARKETING AND OUR SERVICES…

Can Touchline services be customized based on our internal team’s capabilities?2018-09-29T20:52:34-06:00

Yes. Our model allows complete flexibility so you’ll be able to get the help you need to succeed. If your internal team is already doing a great job in particular areas of marketing, we’ll use that as a starting point and allocate points where we can make the biggest impact in your marketing.

What is On-Page SEO?2018-09-17T15:58:16-06:00

On-page search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of optimizing individual web pages in order to rank higher and earn more relevant traffic in search engines. On-page refers to both the content and HTML source code of a page that can be optimized, as opposed to off-page SEO that refers to links and other external signals.

On-page SEO continues to change every year, so it’s important to keep up with the latest practices. Touchline uses a handy checklist that helps map buyer persona and associated keywords and phrases to each page. Each page is evaluated for mobile device responsiveness, page length, links, phrase density, use of markup tags <HTML>, intrusive linking, calls-to-action (CTAs), and more.

Why is a Blog important?2018-09-17T15:57:06-06:00

A blog is now a fundamental component of a modern marketing mix. With a best practice implementation of a blog, small and medium-sized businesses get 55% more web visitors, 102% more Twitter followers, and 126% higher lead growth. Search engine ranking algorithms also rely heavily on fresh web content and blogging is an effective way to continually inject fresh content into your site.   Blogs can also establish credibility and ensure that you are participating in the discussion about your company.   Businesses that post multiple times per day are significantly more likely to generate customers from their blog than those who post only on a monthly basis.

Touchline helps each client establish a unique strategy for their blog and producing content.   This may include identifying a process to produce content with subject matter experts at the company and/or supplementing the content generation for the blog with our network of writers, using a strategically defined list of subjects with keywords and phrases.

How does a website project address on-page SEO?2018-09-23T03:56:13-06:00

All pages in a website project will be stored in a database and can be searchable via search engines. Touchline will utilize their SEO Checklist to prepare pages for on-page SEO (search engine optimization).

It is recommended that clients conduct market research and conduct interviews with their customer base to develop a baseline buyer persona to guide all of the company’s marketing efforts, including keyword and keyword phrase definition.

How does marketing technology fit into the program?2018-09-10T18:25:01-06:00

We often like to use the analogy that we use technology systems & platforms (like WordPress, HubSpot, MailChimp, Constant Contact, Adobe Creative Suite, Unbounce, Salesforce/Pardot, InfusionSoft, Marketo, Insightly, Eventbrite, Google Analytics, etc.) similar to how an accountant uses Quickbooks or how a carpenter uses a hammer, they are our tools of choice. Sure, these people can make some great things happen, but they need their tools. Tech system costs are in addition to the costs of our packages and are typically paid directly to those vendors.

What is meant by Keywords or Key Phrases?2018-09-17T15:57:21-06:00

Your keywords are the key words and phrases in your web-related content that make it possible for people to find your site via search engines. A website that is well optimized for search engines “speaks the same language” as its targeted buyer persona with keywords that help connect searchers to the website. Keywords are one of the main components of SEO.

What is generally considered out-of-score for a website project unless specifically defined?2018-09-23T03:32:26-06:00
  • Migration of content from old website to new website (pages, offers, images, etc.).
  • Integration with external systems separate from the content management system (WordPress, HubSpot, Squarespace). Examples include Google Apps, Mailchimp, CRM, registration systems.
  • Additional website code for purposes outside of design customization.
  • Additional HTML, software engineering, other web development code that is not packaged with the theme.
  • Re-creation of functionality from the old version of the website that has since been rendered obsolete with HTML5. <FRAME> tags fall into this category.
  • Furnishing of stock photography outside of what is included out-of-the-box. If necessary, the client should be prepared to provide their own high-resolution photography and video or be prepared to purchase stock photography via Touchline for applicable content areas of the site.
  • Support of third-party code or WordPress Plugins
  • On-going maintenance and administration of the web application after deployment.  Check our Monthly Website Maintenance Services and for ongoing support.
  • On-going Managed SEO support.

Who do I call if something goes wrong with the website or I can’t figure something out?2018-09-24T21:52:49-06:00

Provided you subscribe to one of our digital marketing plans, we will be your first point of call should something go wrong with your website. We will determine whether it is something the hosting company needs to fix or something that is covered by your plan. We will provide training and tutorials to assist you in using your website once it is launched.

How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?2018-09-17T15:58:30-06:00

The time it takes for your website to appear on page one of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however, there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimization fundamentals built-in. Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise. We are happy to talk to more about your search engine strategy if we haven’t already.

Where is the website hosted?2018-09-24T21:50:35-06:00

WordPress

Your website needs to be hosted by a hosting company that specializes in WordPress hosting. There are many companies that do this. We host many of our client websites at GoDaddy.com. As the world’s largest WordPress hosting provider, they have award-winning, 24/7 support.

HubSpot

Squarespace

Your website will be hosted by Squarespace.

Where are websites hosted?2018-09-23T03:44:08-06:00

Clients are required to secure hosting for their website.  Many Touchline clients on the WordPress CMS host their websites using GoDaddy.com Managed WordPress Hosting services.  As the world’s largest WordPress hosting provider, they have award-winning, 24/7 support.

What is a Buyer Persona?2018-09-17T15:57:30-06:00

A buyer persona is a semi-fictional, generalized, representation of an ideal customer. The most valuable buyer personas are based on a combination of internal insight, market research, and interviews and surveys of actual customers. Why is it important? – Even a basic buyer persona will help an organization determine where to focus investment and will drive consistent messaging across the organization.

Through tangible profiles, they help you understand your customers and prospective customers better. With a defined portrait in place, it becomes easier for you to tailor content to the specific needs, behaviors, and concerns of different groups. As a result, you will be able to attract the most valuable visitors, leads, and customers to your business.

At Touchline, our mission is to help companies like yours customize your marketing to cater to your buyer personas. We can help align a content strategy to the path of specific buyer personas as they travel through the awareness, consideration, and decision phases of the buyer’s journey.

What are some examples of content that a client will need to provide for a Website Project?2018-09-23T04:14:22-06:00

The following is a list of items that clients can typically be expected to provide.  Delays during website projects most commonly come from this type of content not being readily available by the development phase of the website project.

  • Images – Banners
    • Artistic photos suitable for page feature images (2000 pixels X 1000 pixels)
    • This content can also be purchased, but is ideal if the content is exclusive and personalized to the organization.
  • Images – Client Logos
    • ai or .eps file format
    • If the above file formats are not available, high resolution transparent .png files can sometimes work.
  • Images – Staff Photos – Head Shots

    • Ideally these are professional photos where the staff member looks approachable/happy, wearing professional apparel, and against consistent backdrop (logo drape, logo wall, plain white background).

What are my obligations when working with Touchline?2018-09-10T18:22:54-06:00

We work with clients that are very involved and clients who are not. At a minimum, we request that clients attend scheduled meetings, provide us with access to the systems, people, and materials we need to complete quality work, and review work in a timely manner. A typical Touchline client on a custom plan will allocate 2-5 hours per week to working with us.  A “Better Than Nothing” Digital Marketing Starter Program client will allocate 1-2 hours per month to working with us.

What happens after the website is launched?2018-09-24T21:55:31-06:00

Once your website is launched, we will provide 30 days of support to make sure any bugs have been ironed out and that you are confident using your new website. After this you will need to subscribe to our Monthly Website Maintenance Plan or one of our Custom Digital Marketing Plans to make sure your website is looked after and maintained. These plans may include updating your software, regular backups, security checks and making sure your website is online and open for business 24/7/365.

Are Google Analytics included with a website project?2018-09-23T03:51:52-06:00

The website will be configured to send data to Google Analytics via a tracking code and, ideally, Google Tag Manager.   The instance of Google Analytics will be an out-of-the-box setup with little to customization. Further customization may be desired at a later date to track goals and conversions.   The most important part of this deployment is to begin to collect traffic data that can be analyzed later.

Google Analytics is a free web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google Analytics is the most widely used web analytics service on the Internet.

Google Analytics’ approach is to show high-level, dashboard-type data for the casual user, and more in-depth data further into the report set. Google Analytics analysis can identify poorly performing pages with techniques such as funnel visualization, where visitors came from (referrers), how long they stayed and their geographical position. It also provides more advanced features, including custom visitor segmentation.

What is a Lead Magnet?2018-09-17T15:57:00-06:00

More than 95% of your visitors won’t buy anything or contact you based on their first visit. They’re typically still in the awareness phase of their buyers journey and just looking for information to help research their problem. It takes time to build trust, instill confidence and build a relationship.

To start this process of relationship building, we can benefit from knowing how we can reach our visitors. A lead magnet is the (free) offer you make to get information from a visitor. The goal of a lead magnet is to try to capture some information (most often their email address) and to start forming a relationship.

Touchline helps clients create compelling lead magnets that appeal to their buyer persona’s pain paints, challenges, and goals to maximize conversion rates and kick-start the lead nurturing process.   A lead magnet can most often take the form of an ebook, whitepaper, mini-course, video series, audio recording, checklist, guide, cheat sheet, free webinar, survey, or assessment.

How long does a website project take to complete?2018-09-24T21:44:20-06:00

A typical Website Essentials Project will take approximately 8 weeks to complete. Website project enhancements and add-ons may extend the project timeline. Timelines are also subject to variables that are often out of our control, such as systems access, resource availability, and client reviews & sign-off being executed in a timely manner. In some cases, timelines can be accelerated with a well-prepared client.

How are clients billed for a website project?2018-09-23T03:39:44-06:00

Website Project clients are charged a flat rate for services.   All materials (software purchases, rich media content, subscriptions, hosting fees, etc.) are considered outside the rate for services.

50% of the services for a website project are due to Touchline Marketing prior to the start of the Discovery phase. 25% will be due at the sign-off of the Requirements Phase. The remaining 25% will be due to prior to website Deployment (Go Live!).

What is a Value Proposition?2018-09-10T18:30:42-06:00

A statement that summarizes the unique benefits our company, product, or service delivers to a target customer. What is the product/service? Who is the target audience? What value is provided? Why are they unique? Does that value prop sound cool? Does that really make them sound unique? Do people understand it?

What the heck is a “point”?2018-09-29T20:02:39-06:00

Touchline Marketing has moved towards operating on a point system. We have 10+ years of internally tracking every minute of time we spent on marketing activities so we know how long things should take. With this history, we have cataloged how many points are needed for common marketing tasks so we can focus on providing value rather than billing hours.

How does the “point” model work when an activity requires much iteration?2018-09-29T20:49:51-06:00

Unless specifically defined, all our design-related activities allow for up to 2 iterations.   With these boundaries in place, it actually forces both the agency and the client to be more efficient with their time and feedback.

How will I know if anyone is visiting my website?2018-09-24T21:42:34-06:00

We can install Google Analytics software on your new website and show you how to log into your Google Analytics account where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views than the amount of time people are spending on your website. Once you subscribe to a Monthly Website Maintenance Plan or one of our Custom Digital Marketing Plans, you will also receive more detailed analysis about your website performance and recommendations on how to improve.

Why is an eNewsletter important?2018-09-17T15:58:02-06:00

As an initial attempt to become involved with an approach to modern marketing for your organization, the recommendation is to develop a recurring monthly newsletter to support list building and basic lead nurturing. Development of a recurring eNewsletter is a basic core component to any organization’s marketing strategy. Touchline has developed a repeatable and scalable process for construction of a company eNewsletter that is focused around efficiency and effectiveness.

How do I know if Touchline is a good fit for my company?2018-09-17T15:57:50-06:00

If your company is looking to generate leads from your online marketing, has a sales team to work those leads, and is willing to think creatively, we’re probably a good fit for you. We have experience working with all types of companies, including B2B technology companies, professional services, consulting companies, and real estate firms. We understand that we’re not a fit for everyone, and if we’re not completely confident that we can help you succeed with inbound marketing, we’ll let you know that upfront.

What is included on a Website Project Launch Checklist?2018-09-23T05:18:47-06:00

The following link provides a sample of pre-launch, launch, and post-launch checklist items completed for a WordPress Website Project.

Sample WordPress Website Launch Checklist (via Touchline Client Cloud)
What is Google Analytics?2018-09-10T18:34:08-06:00

Google Analytics is a web traffic analytics service offered by Google and is the most widely used web analytics service on the Internet. The purpose is to show high-level, dashboard-type, data and more in-depth data that can identify poorly performing pages with techniques such as funnel visualization, where visitors came from (referrers), how long they stayed and their geographical position.

What is information architecture?2018-09-24T21:45:15-06:00

Information architecture describes how the different pages of a website are related to each other. This is usually communicated through a visual tool called a sitemap.

What is Secured Socket Layer (SSL)?2018-09-23T03:46:00-06:00

SSL Certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. SSL websites can most often be recognized by the https prefix in the URL and a security or padlock icon visible in a user’s browser. The primary reasons to apply SSL to your site are:

• Keep thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers
• Gain customer confidence
• Safely accept credit cards on your website
• Gain a better search engine ranking (i.e. Google)

Touchline recommends that all clients apply an SSL certificate to their website. The cost associated SSL Certificates typically varies from $50-$200/year depending on the level of validation and is not included as part of this website project. Touchline can help clients interested in applying an SSL certificate on their website.

What happens if I want to add some features to the website while you’re building it?2018-09-24T21:57:33-06:00

While we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed. If you ask us to add new features to your website while we are building it, we will most likely ask why? If we all agree that your new request will help us achieve our objectives then we will be more than happy to oblige. If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we will suggest to schedule it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched. This will require a new statement of work.

What is an interactive prototype?2018-09-24T21:46:16-06:00

An interactive prototype is a bare bones version of your website that is designed to prove the functionality and features as they will work in the browser. No design elements are applied at this stage as the prototype is just built to allow all parties to make final decisions on the functionality.

How do we cancel services?2018-09-17T16:12:41-06:00

Clients can cancel at any time. A 30-day notice is required to discontinue services.

What type of ROI should I expect?2018-09-10T18:26:04-06:00

It’s common for people to think that inbound marketing alone will generate an immediate spike in leads. Although this can happen if a campaign goes “viral”, albeit rare, inbound marketing is a long-term play.  As with everything in life, balance is the key.

Inbound marketing is opposite of advertising. Effective advertising, which is often much more expensive than inbound, can generate that spike in results, however, once you turn it off, the results go away.  Inbound marketing is more like investing in the stock market, where results compound with more content you release and followers, subscribers, and database contacts you build. Also like investing in stocks, your investment will continue to produce returns even if you stop contributing since past content will continue to get found in search engines, generating traffic and leads for years to come.

It may be a few months before you can start seeing a true ROI from inbound marketing, but the long-term benefits will power your future sales efforts and can significantly increase the value of your business. A recent study from HubSpot reports that 83% of respondents saw a measurable increase in lead generation within 7 months, and 65% reported seeing a measurable increase after only 4 months — And remember, performance gets significantly better over time.

Why do you use WordPress?2018-09-24T21:47:48-06:00

WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers around 25% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customizable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. Furthermore the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap in to this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.

What is the typical scope of a website project?2018-09-23T03:24:35-06:00

A typical website project project consists of an out-of-the-box deployment of a pre-built theme / design on the most recent version of the selected content management platform (WordPress, HubSpot, SquareSpace).

The functionality of the web application is limited to what is included in the theme / design and native to the content management system.  Requested functionality that is not compatible with the out-of-the-box version of the software and/or requires creation of additional website development code (HTML, PHP, CSS, etc) is considered out of scope.

Customizations to the design of the out-of-the-box deployment and documented configurations for systems integration are intended to make the website specific to the client and are outlined in a scope of work.

Why should you use Touchline Marketing for your building and maintaining your website?2018-09-24T21:39:34-06:00

Although we’ve built hundreds of websites since 1995… we’re not only web designers, we’re digital marketers. Our team will create a website that aligns with your marketing initiatives, not act as a billboard in the desert. Our website designs are based on strategy. We listen to our clients and develop a web design strategy that reflects their business objectives (ex. lead generation, awareness, customer loyalty). We create websites with these client objectives in mind.

What do “Contact List Groups” and “Contact List Segmentation” mean?2018-09-29T21:05:21-06:00

Your contact and prospect lists may contains a lot of information, like when they signed up, where they’re located, which content they are interested in, and how they interact with your campaigns. You can use this information to filter subscribers into groups or segments, and then target these contacts with customized marketing content

What are typical responsibilities of the client during a website project?2018-09-23T03:37:05-06:00
  • The client will identify a single point of contact to work with the Touchline Marketing Account Manager.
  • The client will provide timely access to all necessary systems.
  • The client will assume the ongoing costs of hosting and subscriptions to third-party code / WordPress plugins.
