Make Sure you invite your warm audience to your business Site!
Invite your friends and followers on social media! Simple but over looked way too often. Make sure every platform you have gives visitors a way to get to your business website.

Interaction / Comments
Does your website invite visitors to comment on your articles and blog posts? One of the best ways to not only measure engagement, but to also create it, is to take a look at your comments. Are you creating buzz about your business? Take a look at your comment section and see what’s happening. This can be very revealing!
Some business owners choose to not allow comments. It’s really a missed opportunity to build a relationship with people who are interested in what you have to offer. Engage your visitors in conversation and invite interaction and comments. You’ll not only learn a lot about your audience, you’ll help build a loyal community of customers.
It doesn’t matter what the foundation is for your website – Joomla or WordPress or anything in between – it is important to make it fully usable by anyone who visits. One simple tool you can use to make this happen is a search field. You can help guide visitors to just what they need with a search box! Who knows they may see things they didn’t even know they were wondering about!
The contact page is so simple but another one of those over looked items. Make it simple for people to get in touch and you’ll be surprised at how often they will. Include name, phone numbers, email addresses and physical address if you have a brick and mortar. Also consider including any social media links on this page. Each person you do business with will have a different way they prefer to contact you! Make sure you show visitors you want to hear from them.
Social Share Buttons
Add a social share button to everything! This is great for your visitors and your website! It they like what they see, they will share it! This will add SEO value to your pages and post!
