10 Smart Strategies To Convert Web Traffic Into Sales

A great digital marketing strategy can drive potential customers to your website. But high traffic doesn't always translate into revenue. Once you get people on your site, you need to ensure they have a reason to follow through on their purchase. To help you do this, we asked members of Young Entrepreneur Council how they optimize and convert web traffic into real dollars. Their best tips and insights are below.



More than 54% of all workers will need reskilling/upskilling by 2022; it’s one of the top challenges faced by C-Suite. Today, companies spend 1-3% of their total salary expenses on reskilling (approx. $1300/employee), yet only 14% of this expense contributes to meeting the changing skills requirements. SkyHive is a Canadian artificial intelligence company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its enterprise cloud platform supports rapid and large-scale workforce reskilling efforts of governments and Global 2000 companies through quantum labor analysis, a methodology invented, developed and commercialized by SkyHive. It's the world’s first and only “live-streamed” job taxonomy and skills ontology that captures labor market movements in real-time at their most granular level, driving exponential accuracy and efficiency to workforce reskilling initiatives, providing up to 70% savings. With the mission of tackling global poverty and social inequality, SkyHive leverages exponential technologies to facilitate labor market transformation, upskilling, and lifelong learning; ultimately fostering a stronger, more prepared, and more confident workforce for a brighter tomorrow.
