"Content is king": Nothing new here.
"Quality is more important than quantity": Ditto!
"I am a small business owner and don't have the time": You are not alone!
As a small business owner, you are plagued daily with trying to find the time to get everything done that needs to be done. You know you have to pay special attention to your website content. You have optimized your site to the best of your ability or perhaps have paid an SEO expert to take care of it for you. Your web stats are showing increased traffic to your site so you know your SEO is working. BUT… why aren't your visitors staying on your site?
Perhaps your content isn't compelling enough or providing enough value to keep people on your site. What are your available options?
You can re-visit your content and look at it through the eyes of your potential customers/clients. Would your content catch your attention enough to make you want to stay and read more? If your answer is "yes", take another look – you might have missed something. Another suggestion is to have another pair of eyes see your content from an unbiased and fresh perspective. Sometimes we are too close to something to be able to truly see it in an objective light. Haven't you read and re-read something you have written several times to check for accuracy and still missed a typo? Everyone has – even the New York Times has had typos.
