First of all what do we mean by conversion rate? Simply put conversion is whatever action you want your website visitors to take – which could include making a purchase or signing up for your newsletter or joining your forum.
When creating your website you should carefully consider what action you want visitors to take on every single page, and factor that in to an overall plan for your website. What journey would you like visitors to your website to take?

“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it” said Winston Churchill. Are you busy dreaming or are you hard at work? Easyspace have again welcomed back Andrea del Campo from our partner ePages to explain why ecommerce retailers should prepare for winter sales during the quiet summer period.
Over to you Andrea:
For online retailers, summer tends to be a quiet period – customers are usually thinking about everything else other than spending their time on internet. However, September is approaching fast and with it, many seasonal promotions will pop up throughout the last quarter of the year: back-to-school, Halloween and Christmas, for example. So instead of trying hard to maintain your sales and invest all your efforts in summer promotions, benefit from the slow August to look ahead, review your shop and plan for the upcoming seasons.
Here are a few of things you can do to get yourself prepared for the last and most intense shopping quarter of the year:
Sean Mallon is a 29 year old entrepreneur who started his first business, Intelligent Business Transfer, at the age of 21, armed with just a Yellow Pages and a mobile phone. He has successfully run this business for over 8 years now, helping more that 1,200 everyday entrepreneurs realise the value of their hard work by successfully completing the sale of their businesses.
Sean identified the trend toward self-service platforms like eBay, Gumtree and eMoove, deciding that the business transfer industry was prime for a disruptive new business model. He spent around six months attempting to secure funding for the new business, successfully securing £1 million of investment last year – launching Bizdaq in November 2014. With Bizdaq Sean is cleaning up an industry and ensuring that small business owners save on average over £10,000 on the sale of their business.
