Images and Videos
Using graphics and videos that grab attention and tell your story is a great way to hook your customers with valuable content that answers questions or helps build trust. Moving graphics or embedded videos can allow visitors to interact quickly and see what you have to offer.
Analyzing Engagement Metrics
Website engagement metrics include engagement rate and bounce rate. The engagement rate measures the percentage of visits that result in some form of engagement, such as clicks or scrolls, while the bounce rate measures the percentage of visits where a user only views one page before leaving.
A high engagement rate and low bounce rate indicate that users are finding value in your content and are more likely to interact with it.
