It’s here at last - your brand new, shiny, all singing-all-dancing website. And yet sales have plummeted. Why? And what can you do about it?
Firstly rule out any obvious technical issues. If your web traffic has dried up, it could be because your web pages haven’t been properly indexed, which means your organic rankings have dropped as a result.
Make a few purchases from your site to check that everything is functioning as it should. If you’ve done all that but customers just aren’t buying like they used to then it’s time to fix the deeper problems. At this point, there’s no time for guesswork. To find the root cause of your conversion issues, you need to follow a proven, systematic plan.
