1. 50-60% of your website visitors will see your homepage, wont click anything, and bounce away never to return.
2. OK. That sounds terrible.
3. What if one of them had the potential to become a major donor?
4. Now I feel worse.
5. Dont worry. There are solutions.
6. You need to speak to each visitor in a unique way.
7. So, who is visiting?
8. New Casual Core
9. New visitors are not yet familiar with your show, they might have heard about it from a friend or on a promo from another show.
10. Casual listeners are those who might have heard an episode or two, they might not subscribe to the podcast, but would join a mailing list or listen via the web when they think about it or if you told them to.
11. Core listeners are your dedicated fans, they likely subscribe to the podcast, are looking for your latest episode and some of them may have even donated.
12. Its helpful to think of your website as a funnel, moving visitors from new, to casual to core. New Casual Core $0 $$ $$$$$
13. The primary goal of your website should be to move more visitors through that funnel.
14. Today were going to talk about ways you can move New visitors into becoming Casual listeners.
15. A quick hint, it does not involve asking them to subscribe to your podcast.
16. Why not? Because subscribing to podcasts still sucks and is too complicated.
17. A quick game. Say you have 50,000 new people visit your website in a month. How many of those people who visited subscribed to your podcast?
18. Beep. Trick question!You do not have the tools to answer this question. Really.
19. There are no reliable ways to determine how many visitors to your website subscribe to your podcast.
20. But, for new visitors it doesnt matter anyway.
21. What do they want to do? This is the only thing you need to be thinking about for each visitor type. It isnt about what you want them to do, its about presenting the visitor with something that meets their needs. *new visitors
22. What do New visitors want? An answer to this one critical question: What is this?
23. What do you probably want from New visitors? Youve been told they need to subscribe.
24. How might we bridge that gap between what they want and what you do?
