But here isrepparttar dilemma. Depending on any number of factors, visitors could be coming from places other than your ads, andrepparttar 101024 results might be misleading. If, for example, a search engine picks up one site and notrepparttar 101025 other, you will obviously have more visitors torepparttar 101026 site that has been indexed.

Bluntly, hits to your web site don't really count - sales do. Your first job however, is to get visitors to your site. This is done through a variety of methods, including advertising,repparttar 101027 use of search engines and email. Once you get them there, you must then sell them on your product.

On our web sites, we have an "after sale" questionnaire and we simply ask them how they found us. Now these people have decided to do business with us, and their answers will most likely be truthful. We then log this information, which helps us determine what advertising is working.

Ads that don't appear to be pulling, we modify until we start seeing positive results. One ofrepparttar 101028 best places to test your ads is in ezine publications that are highly targeted toward your potential customers. I don't recommend ads in publications that are not targeted to your prospects. Unless you have a very generalized product,repparttar 101029 return you get in these will most likely be minimal. More importantly, you won't get sufficient information to determine ifrepparttar 101030 actual copy is working.

Many people have been advertising inrepparttar 101031 same ezines for years. Remember that there is some "thrashing" that occurs, and some people drop offrepparttar 101032 subscription list forrepparttar 101033 publication, but others are added. This gives you a constant new group of people who will read your ad every time it is published.

Experienced online entrepreneurs will even keeprepparttar 101034 same copy year after year if it is pulling. It usually takes 5 to 7 exposures anyway until they receive "brand identification". When someone is willing to "bite", if they haverepparttar 101035 proper ad, they will remember them. To land your customers, like in fishing, you must haverepparttar 101036 proper bait.
