Solving Website Problems

There are solutions to every website problem

You have a website and it costs money. So it should be generating revenue, right?

As we described Wednesday, that is not always the case. Most publishers have websites that contribute less than 10 percent of their total revenue.

We listed four reasons why a website could struggle Wednesday, but there are dozens more.

A lack of website traffic is a common problem. The best way to solve it is to use as many tactics as possible, including:

  • Beginning a viral marketing campaign in discussion forums
  • Including incentives to visit your website in direct mailings
  • Writing more press releases
  • Offering free content
  • Advertising in magazines
  • Pay per click advertising
  • Lead generation partnerships

Other website problems can be harder to define. They might include:

  • An over abundance or shortage of products
  • Improper website architecture
  • Disorganization
  • Poor usability
  • Inconsistent navigation
  • Stale content
  • Slow load time

Those problems, while not always clear, affect website revenue.

Defining and solving those problems is not easy, especially for a publisher trained in the print industry. But don’t fret, there are solutions to every website problem.
