This is a critical topic for any website owner. Every website has strengths and weaknesses. The key is to know the strengths and weaknesses of your site. It comes down to what we call “The 3 Pillars of Internet Marketing.”
Pillar 1: Traffic
How many visitors come to your website?
Pillar 2: Conversion Rates
Out of every 100 visitors, how many of them take the desired action?
Pillar 3: Average Order Value
For each visitor that becomes a customer, how much is that worth to your business?
Website Analytics Example
Let’s suppose that you get 5 leads from your website each day. Is that good or bad?
It completely depends on the number of visitors you get to visit your website. If you only get 10 visitors a day and you get 5 leads, that tells us that 50% of your visitors turn into leads. That means that the site Conversion Rate is really good. Therefore, try and get more visitors to your site.
But, if you get 1,000 visitors a day, then 5 leads is a very poor conversion rate. If that is the case, don’t think about driving traffic to your site…fix the site conversion rates!
Without Website Analytics, It Comes Down to Guessing and Luck
We want you to know which strategy is the right strategy to implement at any given time. If your conversion rates are great, then drive more traffic to the site. If your conversion rates are not good, then don’t drive traffic until you improve the effectiveness of your website.
Without Website Analytics, you really don’t know what to fix on your website.
