We've asked the questions before. Do you have a website? Is it modern looking or out dated? Does it have a blog? Do you have Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest (as a bare minimum) on your site? Let's share a true story that hopefully will open your eyes and if you heed its message, will make you more money.
A prospective new client approached us about their website. As part of their message, they sent us a report on their site's statistics, that had been given to them by their current website service provider.
What those statistics revealed was compelling, but NOT in a positive way. Their stats proved that the traffic was quite modest, plus that some 94% of their current website's visitors only came one time.
Further, the owner said his company was getting a very low rate of inquiries from the site.
Now back to the questions.
Even if you had a good looking website, if there is nothing on there that would make a visitor think the site has new items going up routinely that might interest them, why should they come back?
Imagine if you went to a news site, and the news was the same today as 7 years ago, nothing new. Would you return?
Or if you went to a clothing/fashion site, and there was nothing that looked like it had changed in years, why would you go back?
Hopefully, you get the point! You wouldn’t hand out a business card with an old address and phone number, nor should you have one of your most important marketing resources – your website – looking stale our outdated.
A key point here is you must add content, and make your website look dynamic and ever evolving, because a static looking site will unlikely reach it's potential.
Part of the Secret of the Success of MHProNews – and the growing traction on MHLivingNews.com – is precisely because we are adding content on a regular basis. It shows quickly to those who visit! It keeps those visitors coming back, and thus our audiences continues to grow.
