 Bounce Does not BOUNCE!
Keeping Your Website Simple!

Bouncing is FUN, but a high bounce rate on your web site means that most of your web site traffic and your traffic efforts are going to waste.  Simplicity (see below) will help.  

As I build my latest website, Win At Losing Weight (WALW), I am sharing much of what I am doing with my friends and associates at IBO..  With 15+ years as an IM (Internet Marketer), my intent is to help you, my readers.   Most of what I have learned about being an IM has been gained the 'hard way'.  The hard way, for me, often means finding all the ways that DO NOT WORK, before finding one that does.  My hope is that these posts will made your IM adventure easier.

Yesterday, I added a satellite website. The site is sort of a long 'capture page' and a 'pointer page'. The new website encourages visitors to go become a member of  WALW (join our mailing list) in order to receive free training, and it 'points' (includes links) to most of  WALW's major component sites.   The other reason for creating these kind of sites is for backlinks as well as creating a change of what you are sharing with your prospective visitors.  I usually use a free website for these kind of traffic and subscriber generating sites, but this time I used my own site and decided to 'experiment' by trying a new site builder.  

Happines is a man, woman, and bounce castle

What I look for in a site builder is simplicity.  Of course, I want a site building to be easy, but, more importantly, I want it to be fast.  I do not have time to 'figure out' how to use a site builder and I am thinking that you might feel the same way.  

If you read my posts, you will find that my favorite free website builder is Wix and my favorite paid web hosted site builder is Concrete.  

Saturday, I was looking for a 'lightweight' builder, for the satellite site, so I first tried an older version of Joomla.  It was 'out of date', needed to be updated, and therefore would ended up not being 'lightweight' for a small site.  I deleted Joomla and then tried Composr because it has building blocks which I thought might be similar to Concrete.  I did not find Composr to be user friendly, therefore, for me, it was NOT fast.  OK, let's try again.  I deleted Composer and found a lightweight site builder called Typesetter.  It has one of the highest customer ratings, 4.92 out of 5.0!  

I am thinking to myself "third time is a charm!?"  as I downloaded Typesetter.  Or would I have to go on to number four.

YES!   The third time is a charm!

With Typesetter, you simply click on where you want to edit and an edit button will appear, click on edit and create!  Typesetter automatically saves your work....however...if you make mistakes as I often can quickly go to an earlier version.

On the left, you can see that there is an easy and simple and quick admin navigation drop down  On the right are your web page editing controls.  In my opinion, Typesetter is one of the easiest, simplest, and therefore fastest web site builders that I have used.  If you would like to try it, Typesetter should be available in your 'One Click Installation' section or the 'Softaculous' section on your cPanel.   If not, it is a free download.

In addition, it has an active forum (for live help) as well as attractive free themes and ample free plug-ins and virtually total control.  

Allow me to interrupt this post with a humorous story that will apply to what follows.


I like to include humor in my IBO Press Releases.I  personally chose the following joke, because it applies in a weird way to Internet Marketing.  Enjoy.

Juan is somewhat of a local football hero.  He was an outstanding player in high school, even better in college, and is now in the Pros.

As he was making his daily jog, Juan noticed a burning building and a woman in a fifth floor window holding her cat.  Juan yelled, "Throw me your cat."

"No." said the woman. "You might not catch him."

"I play professional football,"  Juan yelled back, "I'll catch him."  The woman kissed her cat and threw him to Juan.  Her aim was poor, but Juan, being a star athlete, was able to make a huge leap to catch the feline.

The onlookers cheered so Juan did a quick celebration dance and then, without thinking, spiked the cat into the street.   

The cat's name is Roscoe, he does have nine lives, and he withstood the spiking with no ill effects...however, he did BOUNCE.

A SIMPLE SITE:   (three tips to dramatically reduce BOUNCE rate)

Your site may be a few pages or hundreds of pages, but it needs to be TWO things for your visitors.

#1 Your content needs to RELATE and to relate immediately to your visitor.  If not, your visitor leaves.  Reduce your bounce rate and thus raise your clickthroughs and sales with content (especially headline and subheadline) that relates to your visitor.  

How?  Ask yourself, What is your visitor looking for?  Remember, it is the 'benefits".  The better that you and I can read our visitors mind, the better we can relate.

#2:  Make your navigation as simple as possible.  Even small sites can be made easier.  Categorize, sort, and on large sites use pages (create a list of related pages with links) rather than using drop downs.

#3:  Use 'appropriate keywords' for each page.   These keywords not only help you to get visitors from our friendly search engines, but also your visitors should be on the right page.  This is also important in reducing bounce rate.  Visitors that stay on your site and mine are the kind of visitors we want, they are much more likely to return and/or clickthrough.  

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you much success!
