Getting people to your web web site is just half the battle. Keeping them there and accomplishing a desired result is another. Having high bounce rates (def. visitors who come into your site and immediately leave) costs you high search engine rankings and loses what should be good visits.
Here are some tips to improve your web site landing for more conversions:
After the urging of a number of my colleagues, I decided to start writing a book. The topic: how not to start a business. It's based on everything I've done since 2007 that taught me valuable lessons on entrepreneurship—through trial and a comedy of errors!

Here are some tips to provide a better home buying experience.
As a home buyer, you are looking for the right neighborhood, the right floor plan, and the right price. It's easy to be "wowed" by granite counter-tops, built-in bookcases, and a bonus room over the garage.

The best thing you can do to keep your carpet clean is to vacuum as frequently as you can stand. A good rule of thumb is one time per week per occupant (and pets count!). Now, I don't run into households with 7+ occupants where the carpet is vacuumed every day, but they are out there, and their carpets look fantastic and last for as long…Read More

All of this is before we even take any action to improve our businesses!
