Most people are horrified when they learn that as much as 80% of their website visitors are leaving their sites without engaging at all, and rightly so. Traffic can be expensive, so encouraging visitors to stick around longer can make a lot more sense than simply throwing more traffic at an under-performing website.
In this episode Tim and Lozz discuss the all-important bounce rate metric: what it means, what it should be, and, most importantly, how to reduce it. If you’d like to convert more of your existing website traffic into customers and reduce your wasted ad spend, you won’t want to miss this.

In this week's podcast episode, Tim and Lozz discuss the 5 questions that any website's homepage needs to answer.
Whilst these questions might seem obvious, you would be amazed at how few websites answer them adequately.
As always, the golden rule of website design is "you can't be too obvious". So whether it's hiding important information in the footer, turning your audience off with the wrong images or failing to describe clearly why people should choose you over your competitors, many sites are guilty of unknowingly sabotaging their chances of conversion. Answer these five questions clearly, however, and you'll be well on your way. For show notes visit www.exposureninja.com/episode5
