This week, we wanted to write about one of the biggest problems that outdoor businesses deal with from time to time. If your web traffic is not converting into inquiries, then your website is not doing its job, and opportunities are being missed.
Here are the top four reasons your website visitors aren't turning into customers, and how to make them bite.
1) They can't navigate …
Have you ever wanted to switch hosts? Maybe your requirements have changed, or you're looking to try a new web company. Ready to part ways, you contact your host and request the files you need to transfer your site. Not so fast— they tell you they can't give you your website because of their "trademark" on your "design". (They mean your website!). They say all they can give you …
There are a lot of misconceptions out there when it comes to SEO, and what it can and can't do for your business.
Our competitors would have you believe that they are the end-all-be-all for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). They want you to believe that there's a "magic number" that must be paid to them, and if you pay it, up front mind you, it will deliver better results than…

We understand that switching from one web company to another can be a challenging and painful situation. Most of us don't want to deal with the arduous process of gathering passwords, transferring all of our files, canceling service with our old host, and signing up for new service; all the while hoping that in the end, the new web company is going to work out for us. Fortunately…
In case you missed the big news, Google is now prioritizing mobile-friendly websites and placing them above older competing sites. Read on to learn more about what this means for you and your hunting or fishing business.

Many of our clients are rushing to update their websites before the upcoming change in Google's ranking formula. Read on to learn why the imminent change has come to be known as "Mobilegeddon", and how it will affect your website rankings and traffic.
What is it?
On April 21st, Google will be making significant changes to the way they organize their search results.

Introducing myHC Desktop for Mac OS - a whole new way to get web support!
Although our web-based client portal certainly gets the job done, we think of myHC Desktop as a convenient alternative for those who often need to send in large files (including video).
Getting started with the app is easy; once you've downloaded it, just login once (it will remember you after that), and …
Yes, it's true! After months of little sleep and countless website migrations, we can now confirm that all Managed Hosting client sites are running on brand new servers.
Thanks to this transition, clients who are on a grandfathered hosting plan will now be able to enjoy unmonitored bandwidth and unmonitored storage (same as newer plans).
We're glad to report that our hosting clients and myHC users are exempt from the Heartbleed bug. Heartbleed is a major security flaw that has now affected more than 60% of web service providers and close to half a million servers world wide.
Hunter Connect takes security seriously and works hard to protect our customers' data. Because of this, there is no need to change password…
Although much too soon, it looks like another year is quickly coming to a close. Given this, we thought we'd put together a little update for our clients (and clients-to-be).
As you may know by now, we've always had big plans at Hunter Connect. That's because when we started this journey (back in 2008), we were like overly-eager scouts at base camp, who couldn't wait to head out…
It's sure been a while since we posted on here.
For starters, it looks like my.HunterConnect.com (our client portal) has survived its first malicious attack earlier this evening. A few thousand emails were piped through our support account, perhaps as an attempt to bring down our web support system or somehow impact service.
We acted quickly and have put in place sev…
At its most basic, a Content Management System (CMS), is a browser-based program that is used by internet publishers to manage their 'content', whether it be the written word, photographs or videos.
WordPress is a fine example of a content management system. Most people think of WordPress as only a 'Blog' site but, as most Blogs today include written content, pictures and vid…
Marketing is one of the most essential tasks that any company, large or small, has to accomplish in order to let the world know about their product or service and to generate revenue. The larger companies spend literally millions of dollars each year to hire outside firms to handle their marketing but no matter how big or small the business, a well-planned, maintained and execute…
It doesn't matter whether you're a fishing guide, hunting outfitter, or horse breeder, your website is only effective if it can grab the attention of potential clients and keep them interested in your services.
If we're currently hosting your website through one of our unique website maintenance service plans, you probably already know that updating your site's content often, …
Whether you're a hunting guide, fishing guide or sportfishing charter business, chances are you've been wanting to increase your inquiries and bookings. Perhaps you've even wondered whether you should redesign your website, or hire a web company to research competitors and help you monitor your traffic; while all those things are fine and dandy, they are not enough by themselves.…
We have some exciting news to share with you!
As some of our clients may already know, last week we introduced our new proprietary billing system and project management web-app: my.HunterConnect.com!
It took us nearly 2 months to program, test, and migrate all of our clients to this new system, but we're happy to report that this lengthy process was carried out smoothly and we'…
Yesterday we went over some of the ingredients needed to generate more leads from your outdoor website. I gave you some pointers to make your site more effective and ensure that prospects are able to contact you before your competitors. Of course, it may prove rather difficult to generate leads (in the form of a call, or website submission from interested prospects) if you don't …
Many of our clients want to know how they can improve their traffic organically (without paying for Adwords) and generate more web inquiries in the process.
