What Charlie Sheen, Cocaine, and Porn Stars Have to do With Conversion

What Charlie Sheen and His Taste for Cocaine and Porn Stars Can Teach You About Conversion

This is part one of a series of posts I’m putting together about conversion: why it matters, what you need to know, and how to get better at it.

If you've never seen this screen you need to get familiar with it.

You’ve probably heard lately about Charlie Sheen hanging out with porn stars, snorting tons of cocaine, and overall just having way too much fun. He’s also been demanding a lot more money from his show… which I don’t really get because as I understand it, he’s the one that got fired. A lot of people are saying he’s bipolar and has actually lost it over the last few weeks so who knows what will happen.

What I do know, is that Charlie Sheen obviously hasn’t been doing his sitcom as a hobby, or because he loves doing it. He’s clearly been in it because he is making a ton of money from it.

The point I want to get across to you is this:  if you aren’t spending a big portion of your time constantly improving your website’s conversion, you are doing all that work for free, and completely wasting your time.

Conversion Obviously Matters

When it comes to being successful online, you’ve probably heard that content is king. I think what the phrase should really be is ‘content that converts is king.’

If you’re not worried about conversion, or you haven’t spent that much time on it… you are wasting your time. Having a high-converting website is the most important factor in being successful online.

Conversion vs. Traffic: What’s More Important?

A few years ago, everyone was worried about traffic, and how to get as much of it as they could. Getting a ton of traffic to your site definitely isn’t a bad thing, but with all the place people can spend their time online, it’s getting harder and harder to get a lot of quality traffic.

When people have so many options and distractions online, it makes conversion your first priority. Conversion is much more important than traffic.

Conversion can mean anything measurable that you want your visitors to do. This could mean leaving comments, staying on your site long, giving your their email address, taking a poll, sending you an email, or ultimately buying something from you.

If you aren’t watching this stuff and doing what you can to make these things happen more often, your website is serving you no purpose. I guess it could be a hobby for you… but I’m assuming that ultimately you’re wanting to benefit financially from your websites.

Conversion encompasses a lot of material and factors. Over the next few days, I’m going to get into a lot more of the how-to behind increasing your website’s conversion rates, so keep checking back.
