I am a web designer who was tasked with redesigning a website that sheet music, freebirdnotes.com. The new website has been live for about 3 months but the bounce rate is still very high. I've compared the website with other similar websites, but can't figure out why the bounce rate is so high.
They may need a reason to stay - and to get to know you/your site better before deciding to make a purchase. I just perused the site and it looks like a store. Unless someone wants to buy why would they stay? Plus, they may be looking for something free rather than paid (like guitar tabs). I'd suggest getting people to sign up for a mailing list, with segments targetd to different genres and offering a free arrangement as a lead magnet.
