How To Attract Visitors And Make Them Stay On Your Website
Do you have a beautiful website, yet not enough visitors? Are they coming and leaving your website within 10 seconds? For example, when was the last time you reviewed the content of your website? I will give you 6 Proven Internet Marketing Tips to bring your website alive. I assume it?s your goal, right? Once you implement these 6 steps you will see traffic increase and more sales.
Review your sales copy (usually, your main page).
Are you talking to your targeted visitors through your website? Say what? What do you mean? Reportedly, you have 10 seconds to grasp your visitor?s attention. One costly mistake done on ?beautiful websites? is emphasizing the company?s history and product features without really ?connecting? with the visitor. What is the result? The visitor leaves the website in less than 10 seconds because he didn?t see clearly how the company will benefit him/her. This is a costly mistake because you lose the opportunity to sell to a targeted visitor. You lost a customer!
The most profitable website is one that states how its information and products will benefit the visitor and the problem it could solve. For instance, it is like you visiting a friend and he talks only about himself and all his accomplishments without really telling you HOW he can help you. Got it? Good! Take these steps to review your sales copy:
a. Review your website and see whether the text attracts your targeted visitors. For instance, use ?YOU? and ?YOUR? throughout your website. Ex. I can help you with?
b. Have short paragraphs, up to 5 lines. Highlight the important benefits your company offers to your visitors. Clearly state how your company helps solve your visitor?s problem.
c. Offer a Free Newsletter, or a Free Report, or Free Tips. In this way, you can build up your e-mailing list by collecting your visitor?s first name, email, and country.
d. Make it a weekly habit to review your website?s sales copy.
Make sure your website?s buttons are easy to find so the visitor clicks on exactly what they want to know. Recommended places to have your buttons are on the top part of the page or at the top left corner. It must be visible.
Determine the specific actions you want your visitors to do while they are visiting your website.
a. Buy your products?
b. Read your articles?
c. Subscribe to your newsletter?
d. Sign your guest book?
Knowing your purpose ahead of time is important to help you determine the context of your website. For example, you can have different pages leading your visitor to different options. If your visitor does what you intended them to do, then you will have what is called a conversion rate. This takes us to our 4rd step.
Calculate your website?s conversion rate, which is different than your sales conversion rate. Are you wondering how? Ok, let me tell you how you can do it easily. Go to your traffic log, write down the amount of traffic per month, and see how many people did what you were expecting them to do for each page. Remember? Was your intention for them to buy your products, read your articles, subscribe to your newsletter, or sign your guest book?
An easier way to get your targeted visitors to stay on your website is by doing a search engine optimization to make sure you have the right keywords, description, titles, etc. This will help you target your specific niche market. For example, if you are selling nutritional supplements, you will make sure you are targeting people looking for those products instead of targeting people looking for school books, or automobiles. It might take some time, but believe me it is worth it. You can get started now with these simple steps:
a. Add your main keywords in your title and throughout your sales copy. Use them within contents, not only listing them.
b. Your best way to attract targeted visitors is through Overture - Yahoo Search Marketing, a pay-per click service reaching about 80% of active internet users.
