What have been your experiances with audio?

by Carl Hughes 4 replies
Have you used audio on your website? if so has it improved your click through rate and conversion rate? I am sure there are inquiring minds on here that would like to know how effective that is or is not. Also do you have it start automatically when the site loads? Have you put any of your ebooks into audio and if so did it increase your sales? did you charge more for the product?

    I have not used audio on any website yet. I have very mixed feelings about doing so, at least as far as having the audio play automatically. I suspect that MANY people who visit IM Websites or blogs are doing so while they are AT WORK, and having audio that comes on when the site loads kind of "gives them away", and they will exit your site quite rapidly, and not come back.

    Other than that, I LOVE audio! I listen to audiobooks at least 2 hours a day...I prefer it to reading.

      point well made on the audio starting automatically. as far as browsing the internet at work well that is not what they are getting paid to do on my voice site the first one starts at load up to get a persons attention and that is not bad as they can easily stop it if they want (BTW if i were going to browse the internet at work I think I would have the computer muted) with the program I have it is very easy to select to not have it start at load up if that is what the client wants

        Well, I have many many clients who have had great experiences with audio! I know because they continue to come back again and again for more audio. Once they begin using audio they continue.

        Once thing you should never ever do is to have audio on your site load automatically. NEVER!

        Audio on a website? Its really a no brainer! Would you turn on a TV and watch it that often if there was no audio? Just a bunch of pictures without music or audio? Or course not.

        Those who do use audio are way ahead of their competition!
