If you’re not sure, then don’t worry because finding that information is not too difficult. Once you have it, you can make the right choices about what to do next to make your website work for you.
The key questions are:-
- what are people searching for to find you
- how easily are you found
- how long do people stay on your website
- how many pages do they view
- are the right people visiting your website
- why do they leave
One thing is for sure, customer engagement is key. Engagement can take many forms but two of the most effective are: using video and giving things away, such as discount coupons, special offers and free gifts. A good video, is the closest thing that you can have to a real live sales person, demonstrating what you do and building rapport with website visitors. Giving people an incentive to sign-up to something via your website can increase opt-ins by over 60%. And the secret ingredient for super success with both, is to ask people to actually do something, i.e., include a Call To Action.
Featuring on page 1 of Google is the internet equivalent of having a prime high street location. But just like a shop in a prime location, there is more to success than simple positioning.
On the High Street, if you want people to come in, then your shop front must look good. If you want them to stay, you must entice them further in and have polite engaging staff. If you want them to buy, then you must offer great value and superb customer service. And, if you want them to come back then you must remind them that you’re still there on a regular basis.
It’s just the same on the web. Until now, it’s only been those with deep pockets that have been able to afford the necessary levels of functionality and spohistication that can turn visitors in to customers. But now, thanks to some fantastic innovations, it is simpler than ever for anyone to raise their game and turn website visitors in to genuine prospects and customers.

The first step is to know how many visitors you get, and if you don’t already have Google Analytics installed, then that needs to be your first action. Only when you have your visitor data to hand, can you make the right decisions about your priorities.
