More Website Visitors Required!
How many of us are hoping to expand our business this year?
We all know how to build our very own website for FREE with Wealthy Affiliate.
If only we had more customers we would be able to double or triple our income, get more passing trade and get more enquiries.
All of this is possible but we must have a plan for attracting new visitors to our website.
Remember that Ecommerce depends on driving qualified traffic to your website and giving people an experience that meets or exceeds their expectations.
So remember – for you and for me, the key here is learning how to drive more traffic to my website.
So, how do we gather qualified traffic?
- We can run online competitions or give away free items to gather and build up our audience…….continue working on your email list by getting email addresses from your website visitors.
- If we are involved in food – attend trade shows and events to gather valuable emails.
- If its sport like horse racing, attend the various meetings and races to gather those valuable emails.
- Use your social media to run competitions and build your audience.
- Once you have your captive audience you can make your offers available every week or every month and start increasing your bottom line.
A Mobile Friendly Website
With the increase in mobile internet use we should also ensure our website is mobile friendly.
This ensures the site is easy to read and easy to view without spanning and scrolling.
A responsive website design is one which is optimised for every device, e.g. iPhone, Android, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop.
With more and more web traffic coming from mobiles, it is the future of web design.
The majority of all mobile devices sold today are smart phones all of which have access to the internet.
Responsive web design has only really become relevant since around 2010 – 2011 as this is when Google starting taking it into account for the ranking of websites.
So if you have had your site built before this, chances are, it is not mobile friendly.
Responsive webdesign design was listed as #2 in Top Web Design Trends for 2012 in .net magazine.
Also, key word optimisations, alt tags for your images and regular updates with fresh and relevant content.
So it is important to keep our site up to date with current practices especially if it has been built before 2009.
