What do I mean?
How many web site owners ignore the potential to communicate effectively with their visitors and Potential Customers.
Every visitor, well, almost every visitor, is a potential customer. Why would they have taken the trouble to search you out or click on your search result in Google or any of the search engines?
- Do you know what they were looking for?
- Do you know if they found it?
- Do you know what search engine they used?
- Do you know what they did on your web site to try and find it?
- Do you know what actual keyword or phrase they used to find your site?
- Do you know what pages/content they read?
- Do you know what pages or content they find of most interest?
- Do you know how long they stayed or how many pages they looked at?
- Do you know if they ever come back?
If you answer no to any of the above then you’ve abandoned your site, albeit unintentionally.
