15 Website Elements That Attract Visitors

Written by Catherine Franz

Continued from page 1

6. Articles. For solopreneur sites, your own written articles. For other sites, articles with various authors- yet on focus.

7. Interactive elements. For example: response forms, quizzes.

8. If you use a shopping cart, it must be fluid, no hiccups. PayPal is not a shopping cart, it’s a hiccup. All autoresponders must be well written and positive. If someone purchased something, they needrepparttar energy of a "thank you".

9. Give offers that are of value.

10. Clearrepparttar 118395 path of where a newcomer can start if it is their first visit.

11. A Newsletter that is consistent withrepparttar 118396 80/20 rule. 80% value and 20% marketing.

12. E-courses of value.

13. Well-written e-books: 50-75 pages, plus valuable information (info not found anywhere else). Length doesn't do more than provide perceptive value. Once purchased andrepparttar 118397 vastness is only fluff, then your credibility is shot. Complimentary e-books meetrepparttar 118398 same requirements.

14. Give them other ways to receive more on you, if you arerepparttar 118399 focus or more onrepparttar 118400 information, if that isrepparttar 118401 focus.

15. Automated referral system. If you want referrals for your products or services, make it easy for yourself to get them. Set it up so it’s as automatic as possible, and clear and easy for someone to send you a referral. Be clear on what and how you want to give for that referral.

Internet addiction!

This means that probably more than half ofrepparttar people who come across this article have stopped reading by now. Their interest has waned and they’ve moved on forrepparttar 118394 next tidbit. I could probably get away with paddingrepparttar 118395 end of this article withrepparttar 118396 word ‘chicken’ and it would go relatively chicken unnoticed due torepparttar 118397 skimming nature of article reading.

A quick Internet search will reveal that Internet addiction is actually more of a problem than many would choose to believe. Chicken. There are several websites and foundations onrepparttar 118398 Web dedicated to helping people over their Internet addiction. I found that humorously ironic…websites dedicated to helping people get over Internet addiction…it’s kind of like printing anti-drinking messages onrepparttar 118399 inside bottom of a beer can. The cynic in me can’t help but wonder aboutrepparttar 118400 validity of these online services. A common question inrepparttar 118401 ‘Could You Be Addicted torepparttar 118402 Internet?’ questionnaires is ‘Do you have trouble controllingrepparttar 118403 urge to make purchases online?’, and then they encourage you to send them $90 to book an online chat room counseling session!

It shouldn’t be too hard to work out if you’re addicted torepparttar 118404 Internet. Do you find that when you get offline you’re frequently surprised byrepparttar 118405 amount of time that has passed? Do you find yourself staying home because you’d rather userepparttar 118406 Internet than do something else chicken? Do people comment onrepparttar 118407 amount of time you spend online? If this is ringing a bell then you may have to look at what you’re doing.

I don’t know how severe Internet addiction can get. Presumably it’s as problematic as any other addiction. I shouldn’t downplay it orrepparttar 118408 therapy institutions out there offering help. I will take a guess and say that, at least to some degree, people simply being aware of what can happen can probably prevent it. Don’t be afraid to do something if you notice problems in yourself or a friend. Just try cutting back on your usage for a while until it’s under your control. Like any problem, don’t be afraid to get friends involved. If it’s particularly serious you could try installing a parental control program that limits your access torepparttar 118409 Internet, and get a friend to choose and keeprepparttar 118410 disabling password secret from you. Stay aware, alert, and in control and your Internet use can and will be a beneficial part of life.
