Hi everyone! About a month ago my father asked me to take over and run his online web store for him. He originally purchased this for my stepmom so she wouldn`t have to stand on her feet all day but she has no interest or time to run it. For the last month I have been spending about 15 hours a day every day to learn, research and implement everything I can to get this up and running for him. (I didn`t have much website knowledge before). I have submitted to search engines, worked on keyword and SEO, and have about 3 different traffic analyzers running to kind of keep each other in check. I have utilized free advertising on Visa Business Network through Facebook and free advertising through Microsoft Live Business Online (plus several free ad boards and safelists). I`m getting roughly 30-50 visitors a day but no sales. Some of them are even repeat visitors. Most people only visit the first page for a few seconds and then leave. I have about a 70% bounce rate just from that page. The other pages (if they make it past the home page) don`t have much for visit length either. I change the home page products weekly and I am running what I think are some really great promotions right now such as 30% off orders over $35 and Free shipping on orders over $50. It is an eCommerce website that my father purchased through eMerchant Club. The pages are already built for me but there are several things I can change on them. Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about anything else I have done to promote this site please feel free to email me. Please don`t hold back on the criticism as I need to know everything possible to make this successful for my parents (and for myself!). Thank you so much for your time and input.
