Whether you promote RingCentral through content or comparison sites, email / newsletters or natural or paid search, the below best practices will help you drive relevant and highly converting traffic.

Content sites

Use your unique voice: By developing your own unique content, you'll not only complement RingCentral ad copy, but you'll help differentiate yourself from your competition.

Edit your work (or have someone else proof it for you): Not only will you appear more professional, correct spelling and grammar helps increase your natural search ranking and achieve the best conversion rates.

Branding guidelines are important: Any use of RingCentral product must be in full compliance with RingCentral's logo usage guidelines.

Text links and banners: Where your banner and text links are placed can often be just as important as what they say; the following tips will help you convert more prospective customers.

  • Give banners a prominent placement and be sure to keep them 'above the fold' (viewable without scrolling down the page).
  • New creative will keep your prospective customers interested.
  • Text links work great if they're placed in the right context.

Use text links for the highest conversions: Text links in the right context consistently have the highest conversions rates.

Email / Newsletter

We've found that sell-through rates for links included in opt-in emails and newsletters are consistently among our highest converting links. Email marketing remains an effective business model and communications medium; however, it is important to follow email best practices to ensure both legal compliance and improve performance. Compliance: Please comply with laws regulating email solicitations. Any company or individual practicing email marketing is subject to federal and state email laws including the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. Be sure to review and conform to any legal regulations and RingCentral's email policy.

Review / Comparison sites

If you have a product comparison website (for example: toll free numbers, Internet fax and VoIP), be sure to feature RingCentral copy as appropriate.
