However, if your landing page takes a while to load, the chances of the user ‘bouncing off’ is highly likely. There are simple ways to do this effectively, but if you would like assistance speak with Telsa Media today.
Another essential factor is that the call to action button or the contact information is evident as soon as a user visits your site. If the user has to search to find these details, they are more likely to go elsewhere.
A simple way to get your website seen by many users is by creating engaging content. Long pieces of texts and huge paragraphs are boring. Audiences look for quick, punchy text that either informs or educates users on exactly what they want to know. Short, engaging paragraphs increases the chance of making a conversion.
Video content is also an element of SEO that is an innovative and fun way get a message across. If the content includes typical keywords relating to your business, it will show in specific search results people make.
Using effective imagery makes content much more appealing and shareworthy for users. Not only does it lure the user in, but it also can quickly describe what you are looking to sell.
Local SEO Optimisation
If you are looking to promote your business to users who are within your local area, it is important that you use targeted local keywords. These keywords will help you get recognised in the search engine results pages (SERPs).
One simple thing that many businesses miss out on is creating a Google My Business listing.
Google My Business is and free and simple tool that can help organisations and businesses manage their online presence in areas like Google Maps and Google Search. Once you have verified your business filling out your brand name and address, you allow customers to find you easily and find more information about your business. You can also interact with your customers by responding to reviews and posting images of what you do.
On-Page SEO Work
To boost your page rankings, it is important to enhance certain page elements including:
- Meta descriptions
- Internal links
- Header tags
- Page titles
To do this, you need to use chosen keywords within these page elements to show search engines that your content is relevant in particular keyword searches. Make sure the website flows with strong titles and clear menu structure enabling users to find what they are looking for.
Set up Tracking Tools
Set up a tracking tool to track your lead results. By doing this, you can track:
How many users visit your landing page – this is great to see if there are any particular patterns such as an increase in visitors at the weekends.
Where your traffic is coming from – whether it’s from social media, organic results or email, your page visits will help you understand what is working and the areas you may need to improve on.
The average time a user is on your site – if a visitor is spending longer on your landing page, this is most likely because they are finding the content on your site valuable. If this isn’t the case, make sure your landing page is clear highlighting exactly what you wish to sell or put forward to encourage users to take action.
The Bounce Rate – this determines the percentage of people that leave your site after visiting one page. It is essential to make sure that your bounce rate is low to gain higher conversions. A high bounce rate may be because the landing page is unclear or not what the visitor expected.
Conversions – see how many Form Submits, Call Leads or E-commerce purchases have been made to understand how many users have completed an action on your website.
Claiming Brand Pages – One simple but effective way to get your brand across is through social media. Set up Facebook and Instagram pages to get your brand name readily available. Let those interested in your business connect with you by following, commenting and sharing your posts increasing your visibility. To save time, frequently schedule your social posts at the best time and date to increase your engagement and remain on your followers’ radar.
