Show Time-Limited Content Above Post Content on Your Website

There may be occasions where you're required to broadcast an important message, or showcase an important marketing asset to all website visitors, regardless of their resolved interest type. To facilitate the need to quickly and easily return high-value material to most pages of your website we built a module that would inject a styled message and optional video into posts on your website; this article introduces the system in brief.

Your Website Needs to Convert: We include a large number of ways in which to alter the content that is returned to specific types of website visitors. In fact, your mortgage broker website has the capacity to completely change shape based on the resolved interest of a user. The delivery of information that is most applicable introduces relevance and improved website pathways to the user experience and inevitable increase engagement, and will always improve upon your conversions. As your single most vital marketing asset, your website is intrinsically connected to your marketing funnel, and should be designed to convert. We hear a lot of those that like to call themselves marketing experts talk about website conversions, and quite frankly, we don't know what the falafel they're talking about. A converting website is more than just a few contact forms - it's an entire powerful framework designed to support a website and marketing funnel.
Transient Page Messaging: Other methods of time-limited content on your website is by way of a website header, custom campaign messages shown to a user that arrive on your website by way of email marketing, or the post type-specific floating footer banner at the bottom of your page. These features supplement the powerful conditional framework. All transient page messaging support interest rate placeholders that return the most up-to-date and lowest available rate from your panel of lenders.

The 'InPost' feature adds a defined block of content to different post types - such as those in your blog or FAQ section - so each InPost block may be the same for every section, or altered to be more relevant.

The Result

The result of what we're introducing on this page is shown below.

Website InPost Container

Pictured: The InPost container. The container contains two primary elements: the text, and an optional video. You may include HTML and/or shortcode. All attributes of the container are fully customisable.

The InPost Message is a Funnel Course Correction

Like any popup or interference-based content, anything you place inline with your post content will potentially detract from the standard flow expected of your reader, so any interference must provide a clearly defined purpose, and it should be designed with a clear call-to-action designed to improve upon the funnel experience. For this reason, any links you include in the InPost content should be created with our link shortcode (with an assigned interest type)) and should be cleverly crafted to ensure the distraction is justified by the way of the experience.

Read This First

Pictured: A website is obviously designed with an 'escalation of attention' in mind. A page is usually designed in such a way that a user will ingest important information first, secondary information next, and then other information on the periphery. Any interference-based content in your post content will steal attention away from the standard and more intuitive design flow, particularly if flashy styling is applied.

Your InPost content will likely be read even before you post title so you're essentially drawing attention away from the primary page content. If you use InPost content, the information you share should be designed to improve upon the user experience and it must add real value to the alternate funnel pathway since the path you create is one that will likely attract large amounts of traffic.

Creating InPost Messages

A message is first created with a basic title and description (the title is for your reference in menus). The description may contain HTML and shortcodes.

InPost Styles

Pictured: Styles are created independently and then assigned as required to InPost messages when sent to your website.

Styles are edited by clicking on the appropriate 'Edit' link in the 'Summary' tab. When a change is made you should send your profiles back to your website, with each InPost container that references the applied style taking on the new changes immediately.

Send InPost Profiles to Website

Pictured: Sending InPost profiles to your website (snipped for readability). You simply select the message, style, video, and optional expiry time for each specific post type, and then send to your website.

The content you share to your website is all potentially scrutinised from a compliance perspective, so all records are maintained in full from the 'Summary' tab. The same panel provides a facility to update or edit any of the InPost data.

Conclusion

The InPost message is assigned on a page-type category and its purpose is clear: create pathways and conversions. They're generally limited to time-limited content that you might want broadcast in a prominent manner.

Post Content WP Function: If you're not a client and you're looking to inject content into articles as we've described on this page, we have an article scheduled that'll provide the necessary DIY solution. Read: "Add Anything to the Beginning and End of WordPress Post Content.

A Platinum feature we'll soon migrate into Yabber's FAQ module will permit you to add custom content to each and ever FAQ post. The expectation is that every FAQ page will eventually include a video (which is the primary purpose of the new FAQ Block), and the forthcoming FAQ Block module within Yabber will make this easy.

Featured Image: Commercial Banking Company (CBC) of Sydney, Main Rd., Mittagong, c1900. Originally built by J.J. Campbell in 1893 as the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney at a cost of £2840, the bank was vacated in the 1970s. The building was restored in 2008 as the Old Bank Hotel. If the design looks familiar it's because the same construction was used in numerous locations, such as on Queen St., Campbelltown, and Manning St. Kiama. The CBC commenced operations on the 1st November 1834, and was ultimately merged with the National Bank of Australia (National Australia Bank) in 1982. [ View Image ]
