Unfortunately, some websites are not built or maintained to accept qualified leads. A website can have the ability to turn away potential customers if it is not optimized correctly. As a business owner, ask yourself these questions to understand whether or not your website is neglecting lead generation.
Learn which parts of your website are receiving the most traffic. External lead generators, like social media, email marketing, display advertising, or pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, can direct visitors to specific pages. Popular pages include your website’s home page, contact page, or a unique landing page. You can review these insights through the backend of your website or through Google Analytics. You should also be able to see the average time visitors are spending on each page. Visitor activity can help decide which pages should be optimized to capture as many leads as possible.
A contact form allows you to garner more of a website visitor’s personal information, like his or her name and email. This initiates a sales opportunity that involves a motivated lead. If a website only lists a phone number or email, there may be potential for an open-ended conversation. Whether they be on individual pages or on chat widgets, ample contact forms will increase the likelihood of continued lead generation.
Not every snippet of copy speaks to every reader in the same way. Using A/B testing on certain calls-to-action can help you understand which messaging and placements perform better. Moving a call-to-action button to a different part of the page, changing its title, adding a sales promotion, or even swapping out corresponding images can impact the engagement each page receives.
Hardcore Tip: personalized calls-to-action tend to generate more leads than blanket statements.
Website visitors can often feel dismissed if they do not receive answers to form fills. Nurture those leads by responding to them promptly with the information they are requesting. Remember, no two leads are the same. Capitalize on each lead’s specific needs and interests to provide them with relevant and helpful feedback.
