After heavy promotion, search engine placement, etc, the following call comes in.

Client: I got my hosting bill!

Me: (pull up info) Looks like your new website is getting lots of traffic! Congrats!

Me: (suddenly the coffee kicks in): Do you have people come into your store "Just looking"?

Client: Of course!

Me: You pay for the lights and employees wages when people are just looking?

Client: Of course!

Me: And you pay for the cost of internet traffic to your site, regardless of a purchase.
Client: ...

Me: ...

Client: ...

Me: In fact, I tend to shop around first then come back later to buy something.

Client: too! Thanks. <click>
