percentage of visitors (or you can call them clients,
brides and or engaged couples)
that come to your site and then leave as
quick as they got there without seeing any of your awesome content or booking
you for their dream wedding.

While having a high bounce rate isn’t always a bad thing it is always an indicator that tells you, if you’re getting the right people to your website. If your advising in the right places, then people looking for your awesome wedding service will click through to your landing page and do what you need them to do to become new clients! However, if you are advising in the wrong places or just anywhere because you haven’t discovered the best places to find your ideal client yet!

  • Readability

You work hard! Your content is important. You want people to
read and enjoy your work, so they will use you to make their dream wedding a
reality! So, make sure that your content is readable. Here are some simple things
that make content more readable:

  1. Give them what they came for first (If your blog
    title says how to grow
    your wedding business organically tell them how then explain)
  2. Use bold keywords
  3. Use images, charts and graphs to explain (a
    picture is worth a thousand words especial to a couple getting married)
  4. Ask questions (get that potential client talking
    to you!)
  5. Always have a call to action but don’t make it
    sound like a sales call (Instead of book us today… try us today)
