Make Clicks Count, Make Clients Count, Make Content Count

We have been branching out!  

We are introducing two more products into the Make * Count Platform, searchable by the labels within blogger!

First, Make Clients Count,

It is an EASY to use Reputation management platform, a great way to get more 4 and 5 starts on your Google (and other Review sites).  Not only is that great for Social Proof, but is amazing for organic SEO!



Make Content Count Scans your Website and reports back as what Google would see.  It gives a Technical Audit and SEO Audit that you can take to your Web Dev to help improve your site!

Real-life example on how I used Make Clicks Count for my Side gig…

Heads up, this post is from Gjeret, owner of Make Clicks Count, and gives an example on I created (and why I started selling) this awesome tool.

One of my (many) side gigs, my zen, what keeps me sane, is cutting gemstones and making jewelry.  I can build something with my hands and get a sparkly treasure out of it!  I post on Instagram, facebook, even have a webstore.  These places are not for me to make a living, or main focus of even selling but I use it to show off my work.  Randomly someone will wander across my Instagram page and go "that is Awesome, I want that"  then they message me and ask how to get it.

Boom… This is where Make Clicks Count comes in.

My Personal "Shortened" Domain I have attached to MKECC.com is shiny.one, and I use it for all my Jewelry related links.

Today, someone wants more info on some of my beamsplitters.  Great!

Go off to my webstore, find the products they are looking for, Grab the URL




Open up Make clicks Count and Shorten the Domain.  For this I normally don't create a custom alias, just have randomly generated one plopped in.




I do this with the two other items this person on Instagram is looking at.



Once they are created, hop on them and edit them, I make sure the Title and Description are awesome, then I add my tracking pixel to them,  This will allow me to re-target ads to this person in the future!


I am now going to create a bundle, not something I have talked about much, but an Awesome tool!


I am guessing this person's name (from the Instagram profile) is Ashlea, but the name on the bundle really doesn't matter (Personally I don't like the bundle naming because it is not as memorable as a short(er) link). Set the Bundle Access to Public and Create the bundle.




Once the bundle is made, go back to your dashboard and look at your links

They all should have Pixels next to them, Click on Options


And.. Add to Bundle


We are adding it to the bundle we just created

And, now if we hover over the link, we can see what bundle it is in (you can only assign a link to a single bundle)


Go back to bundles, and Grab your Bundle Link


and, then back to Dashboard, and paste that link in.   This is where an alias is really useful. 




Create the link… Add a Pixel, and Share it out!  
when they click on the link they see:



Now, 
a) You have a personalized link for your future customer.
b) You have a really cool looking link landing page with exactly what the client wants
c) You can TRACK how many times any of the links are clicked
d) Once the link is clicked, you have gathered their facebook (in this case) Pixel data, and can use Facebook Ad's to re-market to them!
e) Your links to your product are now created, and you can use the Shortened link in different bundles, direct link to Facebook, or even links in your newsletters…. collecting tracking data and adding your pixel to the people who click on it!

Splash Pages! What are they, and why do I care?

Splash Pages!  

Splash pages are a great way to give a little extra information to people who click on your link before they land on the final destination.  Perfect for a little bit of extra advertising, or instruction on a call to action! Great for Promo's, Extra touches... Possibility are almost endless!

Let us get started!

What information can you put in a splash page?  Well... just about anything!  As long as you can fit it on a graphic and imprint that message to your user in 10 (ten) seconds!

Let's get started! Go click on the link, and create a Splash page!

We now get to fill out some required information!  Don't worry, it's easy!

 

We have a unique name, this is, if you have multiple splash pages, a way to tell them apart. Put something descriptive here. This is a required field.

The link to Product is filled in with a URL that the viewer can click on.  This URL can be the same, or different, then the original destination link.  The button verbage is "View Site"

 

The Avatar is a 100x100 pixel image, located at the bottom left of the splash page.  The File size must be less than 300KB

The banner can me much larger, and needs to be at least 980 pixels wide.  The height must be between 250 pixels and 500 pixels hight.  The maximum size of the banner is 500KB

 

The Custom Title and the Custom Message are your Call to Action, this is what you would use to entice your viewer to click on the "Visit Site" Button.

 

Put it together and this:

Will look like this:

Note, your viewer will see a countdown from 10 to 1, after the counter his 1 the viewer is then sent to your link the Splash page is attached to

The cookie warning popup is to comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) informing that our site uses cookies.

 


Let's attach the splash page to one of your links, in your dashboard, find your link you wish to attach the splash page to, and click edit.

Scroll Down.


Go to the field called Redirection, Use the dropdown and change from Direct to the Splash page you created earlier.

Scroll down to Update to save your changes!
