Was chatting with a client yesterday and they explained to me that they have been looking at their web site stats and thought they were not good at all, he said he still haven’t had any enquiries and really could do with some more clients. He said he had a look round and found some stock photos,and found some that looked as though they were free. Thought it might be an idea to start replacing the current photos with some of these stock photos they though that if this change was made that maybe then they would start getting some enquiries.
After a 20 minute review of his site I told him the following points:
1 The last 30 days you had 157 visitors which is up 27% from the month before so by any measure on the most basic and budget of websites you have to say is a success. Even if you had 30 visitors in the last 30 days I would say this is probably more than should be expected for a new budget site. We have websites that we have grown from scratch to now have 10,000 visitors a month so know what it takes to make a success of a business website online.
2 The stock photos you pointed out cost about £2 each and to change 6 photos on your site will take us about 30 minutes work but can’t see how this will positively benefit you as your pictures are fine. I have 10 ideas to get you more visitors to your site a few are ones that cost money and that we do for you (more pages / a customised blog / seo program) but there are lots that you can do yourself also see my list of recommendations http://www.delicious-webdesign.com/seo-promote-website.html
