Would someone come back to your website?
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by
The first thing you have to ask yourself is why would someone come back to your website right? It seems like 95% of websites are “static” and aren’t frequently updated. The other 5% are making updates and give you a reason to come back, let’s look at why.
#1 – There is a blog
The tricky thing about this though is that you shouldn’t just call this section on your site “blog,” it should be a topic that you show your expertise on as well as authority on this topic. I recently read Michael Hyatt’s book “platform” and highly recommend you read it as he walks through step by step on how you should do this.
#2 – There is a video series

Say you have a tv show – rather than listing your shows as a boring archive with air dates, label each video as part of a series and you can even schedule when the next part of your video publishes on your site.

This is the shiny object these days and for good reason because if done right because you can really build your credibility and tribe of done right and it’s easy to republish your content within your site.

Theres a lot more reasons why people come back to websites but these 3 are for sure what is trending in 2020.
The question I have for you is, if someone goes to your site, will they come back?

Here’s 3 simple ways to do it right. #1. Be genuine and don’t sound like a robot.…Read More
In so many ways, what’s old has made a roar back in the way communication is happening right now with the ol’ situation we are in right now. People are calling people, there are actually people outside and going on trails (saw this yesterday it was amazing), and emails from CEO’s are through the roof – just check your inbox.Read More
Most businesses almost hide what they want people to do on their site. If you knew someone was on your site for 1 minute and 38 seconds would you have your site designed differently? (By the way, that is the averages I typically see when diving into google analytics). There is an art to making a quality design paired up with a call to action.
