When I was at the beginning of this road, at the end of my initial meetings with one of the founders of a brand said that “2 years. Give yourself at least 2 years to do your own business, don’t give up until then. Other people also advised me this back at that time. So, finally, the time has come!

Why Users Leave Your Website?

Let’s think of a website or a mobile application. Consider that only 1 person in 100 visitors make a purchase, subscribe to the newsletter, or fill in the form.

“So what might be the primary intention of the remaining 99 visitors? For instance, why a user who adds a product to the cart, who has become a member, even filled his/her address details, leaves the page before completing the process? How can we increase this rate from 1%? “
