Blogging Regularly, but Page Views Keep Dropping?

 


One of the first pieces of advice you'll receive when trying to build up a good foundation for SEO in your business is to regularly create new pieces of content. Usually, blogging is the perfect answer for this problem — blogs can be short and sweet, keeping your website popping up in search results without having to revamp your basic content or constantly add new site pages, which can rapidly make your site tough to navigate for potential leads.

If you're blogging but your overall pageviews are still dropping — or they aren't budging an inch when you look over your monthly site performance — something's wrong. Regular blogs should be helping you out, not hurting you!

What can you do to perk things back up? We have a few ideas.

What To Do When Your CTA Just Isn't Working

 


An essential part of any business website is the Call-to-Action (CTA)—either an image or a single line of text directly asking the website visitor to act. CTAs are designed to encourage your website visitors to take the next step and contact you personally. While sometimes this involves filling out a form, it will just as often involve picking up the phone or even heading to your business in person. A successful CTA will help a website visitor take the next step and become a qualified lead.

What do you do if you've embraced the Call-to-Action but it just doesn't seem to convert? If your CTAs are getting lots of clicks but no leads, or they're just not getting any clicks at all, then they're just not working for you like they should.

We've put together a short list of what may be going wrong — and what you can do to fix things up.

Although Instagram’s user-friendly interface and easy accessibility provide great marketing opportunities, it can nonetheless be tricky to navigate effective Instagram marketing without going overboard. Instagram wasn’t originally developed with marketing or corporate use in mind, which means there’s no direct A-to-B-to-C path towards a customer’s Zero Moment of Truth and utilizing it for commercial reasons can occasionally be frustrating.
