Why you need a website scorecard
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel
How can you tell if your website is successful a year from now? It’s the same way I’m measuring if I can do more pushups than my 6 year old son… who has set the bar of 800 push ups in one day, no kidding.
The key is keeping your scorecard of your website stats in front of you and your team every month.
Don’t overthink this, there’s only a few things that you should measure monthly with your website and they are:
- How many live chat interactions
- How many requests for your lead generator
- How many sign ups for your newsletter or email drip
- How many requests for a meeting requests
The key to do this is it training you to focus your attention to your website first of all, and then by using that attention to measure if your website is doing what you want, or if it could use a quick tune up.
P.S. Yes, that’s a true story about 800 push ups in one day and not a myth, the first time I challenged him he did over 550 and I barely did 360 the same day… pretty sure he’ll be doing them soon like this guy below!
About Marcus Rangel
I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

I’ve been writing a lot about email marketing because it’s so essential right now, and because it keeps you in front of your audience. Your subject line will make or break your email campaign. Here’s wow to write a better one. It’s the headline to your email. It’s the reason someone should “open your letter,” yet so many people don’t follow these simple steps to make sure their emails get opened. To make this fun and entertaining, let’s act as if we were writing subject lines for the 2020 reboot of the show Seinfeld… this should happen anyways, right? Let me give you a few examples and see which one you are more likely to open: Example 1: NBC show scheduleExample 2: NBC fall update…Read More
With most of the country stuck at home and not able to go out they are turning to their phones and computers more and more… just look at your own screen time report and I bet you see an uptick (you may be a bit shocked like Chris Pratt in Parks and Rec). Here’s the 3 key stats to look at with your email marketing. Your email frequency. This actually isn’t a stat that your system is probably going to generate but if you just look at the dates to see how often you are sending emails out you should at least aim for once a week right now. If you are driving people to a webinar or offer and it’s timely stuff, aim for…Read More
Not seeing your clients or prospects in person can really hinder your business especially in a time like this. But there is good news! You can easily put your smiling face on video just as easy as Kramer brightened the room on every episode of Seinfeld (yes I’ve been watching this lately and loving every minute of it)! Here’s 3 simple ways to do it right. #1. Be genuine and don’t sound like a robot. You may have to practice and fail 100 times but in order to come across like your normal self I would recommend just having bullet points in your head of what you want to cover. If your read a teleprompter people will know because you will perfect everything you are…Read More
