Increased Traffic to Your Website

What your looking for is SEO (search engine optimization) and SEM (search engine marketing). What does that really mean? You don’t just want visitors, you want the right kind of visitors. You want potential clients. So, how do you get these types of visitors? First, you have to know what they need from you. Are you giving them the content and information they are looking for on your website?

Before you start looking for more traffic, try answering the following:
• How are you currently updating your website content? What updates are you making? How often?
• Do these updates matter to your target audience?
• What is your ongoing content strategy? Do you blog? Is it useful to your target audience?
• How are you sharing this content with your target audience? Are they responding to it?

Instead of obsessing over numbers, you should obsess over people. Make it part of your mission to build and maintain a website with a content strategy that focuses on the needs of your audience.

You Have Lots of Traffic But No New Clients

This is called conversion and means that someone saw a call to action , product or service on your site and acted on it.
A lack of conversion could be the result of a few issues:
1. The traffic you are attracting is not interested in your product or service. 
2. You have good traffic but the site is not designed or built for them.
3. You’re simply not asking for the sale or contact.

Poor design can drive traffic away, if your site is to busy, hard to read or navigate. If you your site is not responsive, meaning it doesn’t function well on all devices like mobile and tablet devices.
• Want someone to fill out a form? Ask them.
• Want someone to join your newsletter? Ask them.
• Want someone to buy something? BUY NOW!
Make your site easy and obvious. People don’t want to spend time looking for the information they need. Answer their questions fast and efficiently once they are on your site.
