    Hi,

    Just wondering if you get leads through your website?

    How many unique visitors does your site get?

    How do you get the traffic?

    The reason I am asking is I started blogging which has increased my traffic, but I still get no leads.

    Just wondering basically the level of success you have achieved with your website and how you did it?

    James.

    The company I work for spend something like £8k a month on marketing (primarily online) as well as employing someone dedicated to writing blog posts and managing social media. From that we get 5-6k unique visits a month to the site which converts into about 2k leads. Off the top of my head I couldn't tell you what % then converts to sales.

    We do have ALOT of lead generating opportunities throughout our site and social media.. (ie; free downloads in exchange for contact details, online quizes to win stuff. monthly like & share competitions. etc..).

    Ok thanks for the information.

    That is a lot of money they invest.

    It is, but I suppose its relative to the business. We sell adventure & teaching trips around the world with e-com stores in 5 currencies and the average spend is something like £750 so I guess it pays off?

    *EDIT*
    January is one of the company's biggest sales months. They spent something like £16k on January's marketing!!

    Yes, I got your message and should have replied. I'm not currently taking on new clients so saw it as a waste of everyone's time entertaining the idea of new business relationships. Will be in touch should the need arise. :)

    We get 90% of new leads from our website. So yes it works very effectively for us. I and one other guy blog, post, tweet, etc and that gets us about 2.6k unique a month.

    Also to the folks replying to this thread? How many of the leads are wanting web based software as opposed to web design?
