Another of the most overlooked aspects is testing your landing page. See, you can do all the SEO and what not, but without good testing, it can all prove a futile affair. They say first impressions matter, and leads you may get but the bounce rate may be high.
Carrying out A/B tests (split testing) involves having two or more versions of the same page and testing which converts better. It may be expensive and time consuming but it just may be the missing piece. One of the points I've picked along the way involves some rethinking of your headline, value proposition and social conversation.
