Home Page

Oftentimes (unless paid search or SEO efforts dictate otherwise) the home page of a website is where a bulk of your visitors will end up at some point, if not right from the start. The home page needs to effectively speak to your visitors in such a way that they desire to continue futher into the site. If they don’t move past your home page (often indicated by high website bounce rates), they aren’t getting to the product pages. If they aren’t getting to the product pages, they likely can’t add an item to their cart. If they don’t add an item to their cart, they won’t checkout;  it’s that simple.

The homepage should,  at the very least,  give visitors multiple options for accessing the products on your site and should have some room reserved for the latest promotion. If your website has a home page high bounce rate, you should first focus your efforts on that page, with the single objective of achieving deeper visitor penetration into the site  (i.e. increased page views, longer time on site, etc..) This is one example of what I meant when I referenced the  “crawl before you walk”  statement (previous blog).

To be continued….

Successful business tips!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by curiocache @ 4:06 am
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

11010_25939_tweb-logoThis is taken in part from a post at vermiculture.com…but it is so very true for ANY business venture! I personally like to apply it for my interests in onlineauction.com, Amway, and Avon:

Keys to Running Your Own Successful Business

THE RIGHT ATTITUDE

“Not everyone is cut out to run their own business. Some people are natural “followers.” Others are leaders. In between, there are those now working for someone else who would much rather work for themselves.

Chances are, you are one of them … just waiting for the RIGHT TIME to do something for yourself. But that is the key! It is YOU who must have the ambition and attitude to MAKE IT HAPPEN! The success or failure of a new business is based 85% on attitude and only 15% on your abilities. DON’T start a new business with the attitude that you will TRY IT OUT to see if you can make money at it. With that attitude, you have already failed before you have even started. Come to a decision to do something and COMMIT YOURSELF TO MAKING IT WORK!Your products should be proven performers with unique characteristics not possessed by most others like them in the field. Ideally, you produce them yourself with a minimum dollar investment. Products that are used up time and time again and must be repurchased from you.

THE RIGHT MARKET

Your quality products should be in continuing demand, preferably all over the country. That’s the kind of market that helps assure you of a business you can easily launch, grow and prosper with … this year and for years to come.

THE RIGHT COUNSELING

It is important that you get the right kind of personalized training and counseling in any business. The kind of counseling you need before you begin and while you are operating your business…”

Please check out my auctions at onlineauction.com/store/curiocache

THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
