I`m actually getting what I`d call "decent" traffic, approximately 150-300 page hits per day, and since this is a local site, and I just started an advertising campaign(radio) a couple of weeks ago, I`m not too dissappointed, yet anyway. ;)
But, I`m not having as much luck/success with converting those visitors into signups for the newsletter. Well, actually I guess I don`t really know that. I have 37 subscribers as of right now, approximately 12 or so of those have come since the advertising started. Those same signups could be the ones who`ve visited the site and given me the page hits. Unfortunately, I`m not sure how, or if, I can even find that out?
The site is http://www.thedso.com
I moved the signup form to the front page, so people didn`t have to click on something to get to it. The link is still there as well so they can reach the signup at any point.
If someone can give me some good pointers, I`d really appreciate it. Also, without trying to market the business too much here, if someone`s interested in running the site in their area, contact me for that as well, we`re looking to expand into other areas very soon.
