9 WAYS TO BOOST TRAFFIC TO YOUR WEBSITE
To reach your business objectives, it is imperative to have a well-designed, informative, fully functioning website. Getting traffic to your website is a good start, but it’s vital that you’re getting the right traffic. Anyone can ‘buy’ traffic, but you want results; a phone call, purchase or contact form submission.

Advertising is a great way to boost website traffic. The more people you can expose your business to, the more traffic you’ll inevitably receive. Display advertising, social media and paid searches are great ways to attract website visitors.

5. Make sure your website is mobile responsive
Responsive web design aims to provide an optimal viewing experience no matter what device you’re using. A responsive website will automatically change to fit the device you’re on. This includes desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile. Many people rely on their mobiles to access websites, make sure you’re catering for this market.
Web Force 5’s content management system has been specifically designed and developed to ensure all clients have a high quality fully responsive website.
6. Incorporate video into your content marketing strategy
Video is the most engaging form of content. Using video content is a highly effective way of ensuring your website stands out.
Videos tell a story. They capture your audience visually and aurally. You can include information in many ways within a video. You can have written information, photographs, links, URLs, contact information and more. And it’s presented in an entertaining way.
7. Regularly update your website
Showcase your most recent work. Don’t have outdated photos, blogs and information in highly visible parts of the website. If your site looks outdated it can give the impression it’s not being maintained. Keep the content current and make sure only relevant information is published. This makes it more interesting for return customers too. Make sure they have something new to look at, give them incentive to want to return to the site.
Web Force 5 has developed an easy to use website content management system which will allow you to write your own content if you wish, or they can offer professional in-house writers who can take care of this for you, and craft SEO-friendly copy.
8. Use Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software
Customer management will be a major asset to your business. You, of course, want the initial traffic to your website, but you also want people to keep returning. In addition to keeping the content fresh, it’s important to nurture relationships with your existing clients so they continue to come back.
Web Force 5 has built a ground-breaking CRM platform that allows you to access all of your customer details in one place, anytime, anywhere. You can import and export client data, upload files to your client records, never forget an important date with email reminders, customize a database - all without the headache of spreadsheets.
9. Analyse Your Results
You need to understand the value of your campaigns and strategies. You need to identify what is working, and which areas are driving the most traffic - the right traffic - to your website. This will arm you with the knowledge for future advertising investments, and ensure you’re heading down a path that is working for your business.
Building a website is much more than having an online presence. It’s about the whole package. The design, navigation, content and employing a strategy to drive traffic to encourage conversion and drive sales.
