Just Received WebSite Magazine February Issue

Today I received my February issue of WebSite Magazine (only print magazine for website and blog owners) (get your Free Subscription Here) and I must say that this month's content is very interesting to say the least.

The cover story is on Web Analytics and how you can better understand your website and your visitors by analyzing some basic web stats.

What most new and not so new webmasters do is check their traffic stats and don't do much with it. By digging a bit deeper you will find valuable information that will help you and your site get ahead of the game faster.

Here are key elements to look for:

Website Traffic: Traffic is a very broad term and many variables come into play here. What you want to look for is Unique visitors and Page Views. Unique Visitors is the only true measure of your site's audience size and Page Views is the best way of finding out how interactive the page and website is.

Conversions: A conversion is the completion of a predefined activity, whether it be the purchase of a product, the completion of a lead form or simply downloading a free file. By keeping an eye on this stat you will be able to test multiple variables and fine tune your "call to action pitch".

Referrals: The most important part of tracking referrals is not as much tracking which sources send the most traffic but the ones that don't send decent traffic. If you work long hours on your Social Media profiles for example and you don't see much quality traffic from it, you will need to change what you are doing or spend a bit less time on this and a bit more on what is bringing you traffic.

Bounce Rate: Pin-pointing exactly why your visitors Bounced can be very difficult if not impossible, without the chance to survey them. Poorly designed and unprofessional appearing websites are the most common causes. Slow loading pages, poor targeting or even improper optimization can also be reasons for high bounce rates.

Before tweaking and making adjustments to your sites, you should always have a way of tracking the results. Proper use and study of your Website Analytics will let you know what is working and what is not. Keep an eye on those Stats...

326. One important caveat:
327. One more important point:
328. One more thing,
329. One thing I want to stress is
330. Or, if you prefer...
331. Please remember this
332. Please understand,
333. Plus,
334. Quite simply,
335. Reality is…
336. Remember -
337. Remember,
338. Remember:
339. Right off the bat,
340. Sadly,
341. Second,…

343. Seriously
344. Seriously, put some thought into this…
345. Simply stated
346. So hang on while I explain...
347. So instead of wishful thinking...
348. So it adds up to this:
349. So let me ask you…
350. So let me summarize and review…
351. So let’s begin.
352. So remember, . . .
353. So that’s why…

363. Sound at all familiar? Take a look…
364. Stated a little differently – …
365. stated more simply
366. Still another benefit:
367. Still not convinced?

371. That means,
372. That means…
373. That’s right,
374. That’s why…
375. That's just the tip of the iceberg
376. That's not all
377. That's when it hit me...

382. The final facts:
383. The first reason is,
384. The key to…

Camtasia To Increase Affiliate Earnings

With the popularity of affiliate marketing, Online marketers need to find new ways to promote affiliate products and stand above the rest of the pack. Your challenge will be to try and outdo other affiliates and find new ways to do this. We all know that videos have been taking more and more space on today's Internet and what better way to wow your prospects and customers than to record and publish top notch, full motion and streaming screen-captured videos.

This is where Camtasia comes in. It is a proven fact that giving your customers something they can actually see can explode your online sales instantly.

You do not need special training to be able to know how this system can work for your affiliate program. You can create stunning videos, from multimedia tutorials to step-by-step Online presentations. The process is like having your customers seated next to you and looking over your shoulder, as you show them, step by step, the things they need to see, hear and do.

Some of Camtasia's features

- It can record your desktop activity in a single click. No need to save and compile all your files because it is recorded right there and then.

- Can easily convert your videos into web pages. Once converted you can have your customers visiting that certain page. Videos are easier to understand.

- Upload your pages. Publish them through blogs, RSS feed and podcasts. You may want your Camtasia videos to get around and reach out to other people that may be potential customers in the future. Nothing like being visible in many sites and pages to advertise yourself and get your message through.

- Create stunning multimedia presentations that are proven to increase sales because all your visitors senses are engaged. This also has the tendency to reduce skepticism among hard-to-please customers.

- Reduce refunds and other customer issues by demonstrating visually how to use your product and how to do it properly. Complaints will also be minimized because all the facts and the presentation are there for the customers to just see and hear about.

- Promote affiliate products and services using visual presentations. This is an effective way of redirecting your viewers straight to your affiliate website after they are finished with the video. Make the most of the presentation by putting your site location in the end and make them go there directly if they want more information.

- Minimize miscommunication with your customers. Instantly showing them what they wanted in the first place is making them understand clearly the essence of your affiliate program.

These are just some of the things you can do with Camtasia that can be very helpful in your chosen affiliate program. Note that the main purpose of using Camtasia is to boost the income that is generated from your affiliate program.
