12 FAQ Page Tactics 

Today’s consumers want to get their answers instantly. One way marketers can supply this demand is to implement a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page on their website. Utilizing an FAQ page saves time for customers who need simple questions answered. It’s also a great repository for employees to access key information as well.

Take Notes

CTA Strategic Fundamentals

A compelling call to action (CTA) helps you achieve your marketing goals, such as increasing sales or website traffic. But vice versa, if your CTA isn’t clear and concise, it can damage your customer experience.

Gen Z Insights

Gen Z currently makes up 40% of U.S. consumers. Even though this generation is still young, they are already impacting spending habits like eCommerce demand. If your brand is not marketing to Gen Z users already, it’s time to pivot your approach around these new consumer behaviors to optimize your marketing plan.
