Website markeitng goals revolve around three key pillars: increasing traffic, boosting sales, and growing your subscriber base. 

In previous years the buzz was all about how effective ads work. Facebook ads, Google ads and the genius of retargeting pixels (when you visit a website once and start seeing ads everywhere).

Many people put optimizing and marketing their website to the back burner. You can use your website to build your business with a little more work and it’s less expensive. Building organic traffic is more sustainable.

Why You Should Have Website Goals

Just like you created your 2024 business and marketing plan, you also need to create a website plan. Your website goals are aligned with your business and marketing goals and an extension of what you want to achieve in 2024.

How can your website help you accomplish your business goals?

  • Set realistic goals and objectives.
  • Make them measurable - always use numbers.
  • Set deadlines - what do you want to achieve by the end of the year? Break them down into mini-goals or progress goals. By first quarter you want to have 50 more subscribers. By mid-year you want to have doubled that number. You can even break them down into monthly goals.

First review your website and get familiar with your website statistics.
Do a quick website analysis to look at your traffic history, conversion and subscriber rates and your sales.
This will give you a big picture view of your history - what you have achieved?
Look at your current stats to see where you can improve and what’s possible as you set your website goals.
