Are You A Global Thinker?

March 5th, 2009 | Posted in Checkout page, Design, Landing Page, Marketing, Misc, Sales Pages | Comments Off

There’s something about doing business online that a lot of people manage to go for years without really being impacted by the fact that the internet is a global thing and that they’re not just able to do business with people in their own city & state.

Remember, your customers can literally be from anywhere on the planet that an Internet connection reaches to, especially since the laptop has become an essential item when packing a businessman’s luggage. The fact that you live the the backwoods of Podunk USA doesn’t change the fact that customers can and will connect with your site from anywhere on the planet.

Knowing this gives you another opportunity to add a personalization touch. If you look around a bit you can find scripts that can determine the visitor’s country of origin based on their IP address.

Showing the Stars & Stripes to Americans or a Union Jack for Brits, Australian flag for visitors from down under and so on. It’s a small touch, but it adds a tiny piece of the visitor’s home to your site.
