What good is having a website, if you dont know whos looking at it?
Its wonderful to have a website, but can be a bit mysterious, too. Like”if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound?” mysterious. How do you know if people are looking at your website? How do you get people to look at it more? How do you get the people who are looking at it to buy something from your shop?
Trial and error is one way, but thats a lot of work. BeesWax takes a lot of the guesswork out for you, though. The first thing youll notice when youre logged in to a BeesWax site is a litte menu icon that takes you to your dashboard. Dont be afraid to click it—your dashboard is your friend!
Your dashboard will help you in two very important ways if youre wondering whos looking at your site. The first way is an easy place to enter your Google Analytics tracking code. You can find it under”site settings.” Just copy and paste, and youre all set. Your Google Analytics account tells you a lot about your site visitors. What country theyre in, what language they speak, whether theyre on a mobile device, and even the search terms or links they clicked that led them to your website.
The next thing on your dashboard youll want to look at is the”reports” section. This 100% effortless—you dont even have to copy and paste anything! Your BeesWax reports contain all of the data BeesWax has collected on how many people have visited your site, every single day. If you have been doing a lot of social media sharing, you can expect those site visit numbers to go up! The”reports” section also includes all of the email addresses from people who have used your custom forms (in an easily exportable file, so you can get cracking on sending them newsletters, and get even more traffic).
Of course, you can make a BeesWax website and never even worry about whos looking at your website, but if youre the curious type, youll be glad to know that BeesWax has all the tools you need to do this.
But dont take our word for it—the best way to check out BeesWax is to build a site yourself! It only takes a few minutes to get set up, and its 100% free to try.
