If a tree falls in the forest, but no one is there to see it or hear it, does it actually fall? In much the same way, if you have a website, but no one ever visits it, does it still exist? Of course it does, but the whole purpose of having a website is to use it to interact with your followers and customers. So if you want to have an audience standing around observing your part of the forest, here are three, easy ways you can get more visitors to turn up.
Tip #1: For More Visitors, Start a Blog
It isn’t enough to just have a website; you need a blog to catch people’s attention. Blogs, regularly updated with quality content, offer people a way in. Not only that, but when you regularly update your site, search engines will list you as active, and put you higher in their results, meaning more visitors are more likely to find you.
Tip #2: For More Visitors, Make A List or Two
How many times have you seen posts with titles like, “The 5 Most Commonly Banned Books”? Probably pretty often. How many times did you click-through to see what they were? People love lists, and if you intrigue them with your title, more visitors will click it almost despite themselves.
Tip #3: For More Visitors, Use Images
If you’re scrolling through your social media feed, how often do you stop to read text? Chances are most of the time you see a picture or a video, and then you see the text that accompanies it. Websites are no different in this regard. If all someone sees is a wall of text, they’re pretty likely to click the back button, and find something more visually engaging.
These are, of course, just a few, basic ways you can get more visitors to your website. For more helpful hints on getting more visitors, contact The Sherwood Group today!
