Finding New Customers from Website Visitors
We want your website to generate real leads and happy customers for your business.
But it makes no sense to drive random crowds of people to your website in the hope that some will buy from you. Buying web traffic for it’s own sake of bragging about how popular your website is, is pure vanity.
So to find good prospects for your business, we need to create a lead generation plan. Typically this will start with optimising the content on your website to attract clicks from search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and others. This is known as Search Engine Optimisation. People looking for your business type keywords, questions and phrases into Google and if your website shows up in Google Maps, search engine results pages or ads, there’s a chance they will click to your website.
Once they’re at your website, our combined efforts need to convert those interested visitors. We need to understand what information they’re looking for (brochures, samples, how tos etc) and answer their questions enough that they will come back or contact you. Visitors may return to your site 5-10 times before they’re ready to contact you. It depends if they’re researching or ready to buy. If you aren’t converting clicks to customers, there’s a good chance your product, service, pricing or content (text and pictures) aren’t hooking them as well as your competitors.
Let’s get started! Please fill in the form and send us your answers. One form per website please.
Lead Generation - Stage 1 - Getting to Know Your Business
Chris produced some imaginative logo ideas and built a website for us which he delivered quickly, listening to what we wanted to achieve from the site. He is very easy to talk to and accommodating of your needs.
Steve Mills, Managing Director, Decision House
Great friendly and professional service at an affordable rate.
DADD created a superb new mobile friendly website for our building firm maysgroundworks.co.uk. It took them a very short time with little guidance as they understand lots of businesses. They’re easy to work with, particularly for people who aren’t technical. Highly recommend over other local web design companies.
Working with Chris is a pleasure. He helped me with both my logo and web site, he is very responsive, understands the brief and quickly gets you where you need to be. Would I work with Chris again? Yes absolutely and I can see this being an ongoing partnership as my site evolves.
Chris is a highly informed business leader who is comfortable working across all disciplines and sectors. He joined Softools to bring the commercial acumen that as a growing tech business we needed but lacked, and during his time he contributed to all aspects of the business from strategic planning and product design to front end sales and marketing. His knowledge combined with his constant enthusiasm, wit and creativity gave our team the confidence needed to go after one of the fastest growing tech sectors today.
DADD scoped out the full business case for an event upgrade package to Money2020.com, creating the value proposition and marketing plan to launch in two weeks from GO. He also created a directory for our members association. Can’t recommend the quality of work enough.
Tony Craddock, CEO
I found the marketing review Chris did for us truly insightful. He lead a new team through some great workshops and helped us transform from a single product e-learning company focussing on Maths to one cross-selling reading and science related products.
Jayne Warburton CEO
DADD really cooked up a great plan to get my website found fast by customers. My original web developer failed to understand Google search results and SEO. Chris redesigned my site and now people can find my customers’ testimonials and the catering services I offer across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and London.
Jamie Lloyd-Cox, Jamies Catering
DADD initially rescued me for a campaign earlier this year when my web development company went AWOL and took the keys to our marketing agency’s work. With only 48 hours to go, DADD leapt into action, took control of the situation and delivered a very successful result for my newspaper client. Since then, we’ve worked together on campaigns promoting hotels, swimming courses and beauty spas. DADD’s 24/7 responsiveness, creative talents and understanding of the promotions industry is second to none.
Guy Barber, Traders Bazaar
As an interior designer, it’s essential for me to showcase my brand values of contemporary, affordable interior design. DADD took my brief that was as basic as “I want my logo and website to look contemporary, but I can’t describe what I want it to look like until I see it.” With lots of iterations over possible styles for fonts, colour mixes and layouts, DADD read my mind and delivered something that has become my business card, stylish postcard brochures and digital website in weeks. I’ll be going back to ask him for my mobile site and SEO soon I’m sure.
Shirley Goodgroves, Real Interiors UK
My scuba diving school needed a fresh image to attract more students as the local competition has increased. The website design needed to cover all aspects of course information and be an ecommerce shop for my customers to pay for courses and rental gear. DADD didn’t have a ‘padi’ about my ever changing requests for logo design, website tweaks and teaching my team how to use the WordPress editor. In fact, I loved my lobster logo so much I put it on my gear van, His A5 leaflet design was superb, so I had 5000 printed immediately. Then I commissioned DADD to sort out my listing position on google and he had me on page 1 for all the terms I wanted within 2 weeks, saving me a fortune in time and money on Adwords and directories.

I was introduced to DADD in 2011 through a trusted friend who was President at FirstData and now runs a boutique advisory business called anthemis edge. He jumped into helping our charity with both feet and aside from raising funds by climbing Kilimanjaro, his ongoing digital marketing guidance has been phenomenal; sorting out our design, web development (in Joomla) and social media so we can focus on our charity’s purpose, which is to educate children all over Africa to help eradicate poverty.

Astute, creative and innovative. That sums up my experience of working with Chris. He did an excellent job chairing the 5th Mobile Commerce Summit Asia 2012 in Singapore peppering the summit with his expert analysis, adding value and helicopter insight for everyone to appreciate. His engaging personality is contagious, especially apparent when he conducts workshops as he easily gets the whole class lively and active. I will personally recommend him highly as a chairman and workshop/facilitator.”
Herman Zaidin, Conference Director, Neo-Edge, Singapore
I knew Chris at the 5th Mobile Commerce Summit Asia in Singapore (I was one of the invited speaker). Chris is a well organized professional with deep understanding of Mobile Commerce, CRM and Marketing. I very much enjoyed Chris’s chairing of the event, his ability to maximize the contribution of different speakers and his own explanations and opinions regarding the discussed topics. I would recommend Chris as a brilliant event chairman and as great senior professional in the fields of Mobile Commerce and Marketing.

Chris was the perfect choice as chair for the inaugural Mobile App World conference. His entertaining and lively approach kept the day running to time and maintained a high interest level throughout. Chris’ knowledge of the mobile industry and of our speakers was obvious to all, and his ability of being able to ask the right question at the right time ensured the audience was kept engaged at all times.
Shaun Pinney, Director, Mobile App World, Nov’10
Chris is one in a million. He is one of the most unique people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. If you want a new perspective, a fresh drive on the objectives, an upbeat style of leadership, then Chris brings them all to the party. He is someone who you can talk about strategy to as well as the tactics of how to make things work at a ground level.
Chris Redmond, Director of CRM, COLT Telecom
During the partnership between Sona Mobile and WIN, I had the opportunity to meet Christopher and appreciate his work both as Head of Products and as a MD of WIN Financial. Being passionate about customer, technology and products, he excelled in creating new and innovative solutions for his financial services customers. He made astute business decisions concerning complex mobile operator channel negotiations, contents rights management and product design. Sometimes decisions needed to be made during business planning meetings and be well validated, in other times they had to be made on the spot during a major milestone. Chris understood at all times, if the right choice was not in the list of available options, he worked diligently to build the solution needed to put it on the list. In all of those cases, Christopher made the right choices balancing pragmatism and visioning
John Bush, President, CEO & Founder, Sona Mobile Inc. May’10

Chris is a motivational leader and his empowerment and strong mentoring has enabled our team to design and deliver superior customer journeys every time.
