We have less than 10 seconds to capture the attention of your potential customer when they find your site. The best option is to have a definitive next step for your visitor. The ideal way to do this is through calls-to-action. Calls-to-action are simply buttons or images that draw the visitor to click to book the trip, buy now, download the e-book, etc. These elements are crucial to guide the user to the next step in the sales process.
We know that a website is not going to convert every visitor to a sale, however, we can plan to convert the ones who do not buy today into a warm lead. There are multiple ways to do this, including but not limited to, a digital download in exchange for some contact information. For example, regarding the real estate industry, you could create a free guide to buying a house. When the user provides an email address, you can send them the guide, and now you have a lead.

Ensure that you have adequate tracking in place, and perform a website analysis so you can determine whether or not your website is converting visitors to customers. Testing different calls-to-action, button colors, and verbiage on your website is essential to get it optimized and performing to its fullest potential.
