Thinking Outside of the Box: Retaining Site Visitors

Nonqaba waka Msimang

1.       Loyal visitors abandoned the website when my book went on sale.

2.       Google stats took a plunge.

3.       I figured visitors are so engrossed in Sweetness the novel they don’t have time to visit the site.

4.       I could not take chances because the internet is unpredictable like the weather.

5.       I introduced drama with daily episodes, which I call the internet sitcom (i-sitcom).

6.       The name of the drama is Smart Phone The Movie, because you and I are addicted to these gadgets.

7.       Stats have gone back to normal.  No, they’ve gone through the roof.

8.       I cannot believe it that someone out there is waiting to hear how Kenya’s mother and her friends are going to outwit their abusive daughters.

9.       My worst fear now is that they are so busy with the i-sitcom, they will forget to buy the novel.  There is no relationship between the two.

10.   Ce la vie!

  1. Interesting to see the creative steps Nonqaba took to engage her audience. Hopefully she’ll return and post the results of her efforts (if visitors did, in fact, purchase copies of her book Sweetness.

    Appreciate the “everyday, real life” touch to the post.

    Best wishes, Nonqaba!


  2. So by putting ourselves in the vibration, tuning into the
    radio station of money if you will, we’ll be able to attract it.

    You’ve got to get deeper into the relational experiences with
    other people or whatever it is you are giving your attention to.
    Once I used it to deal with a man who was aggressive
    towards me verbally.

  3. 植牙將鈦金屬作的人工牙根,植入缺牙部位齒槽骨中,等待一至三個月骨整合後,再接上假牙即可完成,不需像傳統牙橋(缺一顆作三顆)把好的鄰牙都磨損了。
