2. Set Goals for Success

Define clear goals for your website with SMART criteria (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound). Instead of broad objectives, focus on specifics like increasing form submissions within a set timeframe. Aligned goals provide benchmarks for success.

3. Monitor User Behavior
