Cross-Platform Marketing

Cross platform marketing is a medium where both the companies promote each other’s product and decide to add extra appeal to products they offer. If an established company promotes your product, it certainly adds some value to it. It triggers the visitors to think twice about the product and increases the chances of conversion by 20%. Lead generated from this medium can be sometimes as good as customer referral.

Use Whitespace smartly.

Intentionally leaving space for proper structure and layout give emphasis to the content area and makes it more attractive from reader’s point of view. They say the first impression is always the last impression. So when good design makes a good impression at first sight, it increases the chances of lead conversion. Also, research shows that whitespace increases readability. If a visitor gets clarity and decent idea from the structure and layout, it can be an effective practice to get quality leads on the website.
