vague question: why a lot of visitors, but no calls?

    I have a white hat business site. The site is ranking for a lot of long-tailed keywords. I get about 25 daily visitors. 10 of them are from weird countries, like Ukraine and Romania, which I assume are just internet crawlers. The remaining 15 visitors are real visitors who are interested in what I am offering.
    However, I get no calls, no emails, no sales. on a good day, I may get a couple of calls. but recently, not.
    I know this is a vague question, but I am not sure what other details to add without giving away my niche.
    Is there anything you can tell me to help me increase my sales?
    if there is any pointers that you can give me, I am all ears.

    Maybe you need a copywriter? They can increase sales!

    I'd also recommend a copywriter, or possibly making some changes in your design to better convert the traffic to leads. Take a look at your analytics and see how much traffic is coming from search engines. Is the traffic searching your keywords?

    no call-to-action, cal-to-action message not appealing enough, phone numbers are not easy to find, etc

    What is a copywriter?
    What changes to my design? The site is simple to navigate, it looks a little ugly though.
    analytics: like I said, 15 people are real visitors who are looking for what i am offering. the keywords that they searched for indicates that they are potentially very good clients, but they dont email and they dont call.

    how much conversion do you really expect on 15 real visitors a day.

    I make good money converting 2-3% in my niche, which at your 15 visitors would be a sale every 10 days.

    So it looks pretty simple to me - get more visitors.

    I hate contacting people, I always like to deal by email. Unless it's some personalized business. If it's not a sharp looking site I'd never submit my phone#, even if it's google I don't want to.

    I'd make sure you have a simple form with name, email, and a message they can send directly to your email from the site. Even if it's just random questions it's contact.

    I had good luck with a google coupon bringing people interested in using it from who knows where that didn't cost a penny.

    I think you need to target more keywords and get more visitors to your site. 15 visitors / day just isn't enough for the results you are looking for.

    you should be use user friendly webpage and use unique content.if possible to you start offering service such like you can get 30% off and so on that's really effective and increasing traffic.
