New research has shown that increasing Website Traffic is the biggest challenge for Bricks and Clicks retailers.
Why is Website Traffic important?
Website traffic (or the number of visitors to your website) is important because the number of visitors equals the number of opportunities you have to add new customers.
Once customers have opened you website, they will take a quick glance to see what your website has to offer. If they like what they see, they will bookmark your page or, even better, order and pay for your products and services.
If they don’t like your website, they will get out of your site – maybe to never return again.
