For quite some time now, I have been contemplating penning down a blog post that delves into a fascinating discovery that has the potential to augment the click-through rate of the videos hosted on our website by a staggering 100%. As luck would have it, in the middle of last year, we chanced upon Crazyegg, an exceptional service that we believed would help us in gauging the performance of our site. Upon conducting an analysis of the initial 500 visits, I was dismayed to discover that a meagre number of individuals were actually watching the videos, and to make matters worse, only a couple of them seemed to be taking any interest in the gallery that we had on display.
