For business owners or managers, marketing terms can be confusing. But knowing the distinction between a website's homepage and a landing page is critical.
There are a number of statistics of how long the average visitor stays on a website before clicking away. A good estimate is about 15 seconds. The tragedy for many local businesses is that, while they may be quite successful in driving traffic to their site, they fail to keep visitors there long enough to interact or engage with them.
It's a new year and odds are you're considering a complete website redesign. This could be a great idea especially if you are looking to generate more leads from your website. An effective website is critical to a good inbound marketing plan. And, according to the experts, it's a good idea to start with your homepage.
According to data from Tony Haile of Chartbeat,you have 15 seconds to capture the attention of your website visitors. And what's worse, his data indicates that on average 55% of people who click onto a site spent fewer than 15 seconds actively on a page. If they happened upon an article page, a blog page perhaps, then the percentage was a bit better, over 65% of visitors stayed longer.
