"Getting On Page One Is Easy...Getting The Sale Is The Hard Part."

Do all of that, and you have a fighting chance.

If you can differentiate your product as unique, develop a website that targets only those people who would be interested in that product, and then construct pages that clearly demonstrate to SEsrepparttar quality ofrepparttar 128175 content, I can assure you that your page(s) will rank very high.

You won't be on page one or two for every search for a product that is similar to yours. But, if your targeted prospect uses your specific keywords for your niche product, your chances of being on page one or two are very, very good.

And, it doesn't matter whether there are nine hundred or nine million pages out there, with similar products!

Now comesrepparttar 128176 really hard part...

Next time you punch in any set of search words or phrases and then followrepparttar 128177 links torepparttar 128178 sites on page one of your favorite SE, critically assess each page you view.

Do you "buy" fromrepparttar 128179 first page you view? I doubt it - that would be very rare. Especially if you had my recent experience - I clicked on number one and got back a 404 Page Not Found! Sheesh, can you believe that (a problem withrepparttar 128180 SE's housekeeping, perhaps)?

Anyways, I persevered and finally got to what I wanted waaaay down inrepparttar 128181 list. Maybe my search term should have been more specific? Whatever...I had to look through a few sites before I got to one that was talking to *me*.

That's crucial.

When you walk into a store, you expectrepparttar 128182 sales help to talk to you, and to answer your needs and wants. You would expect no less from any website that is trying to sell you its particular product or service.

In fact, you'd probably want more! And that's what you've got to deliver to your own prospects.

If you're good with words, you can construct your own sales copy. In fact, you should construct your sales letter before doing anything about a website page.

If not, hire a professional to do it for you. When you're satisfied with that, only then should you construct your web page(s).

If you do that, you have half a chance of actually gettingrepparttar 128183 sale when your prospect finds your link on page one or two!

Now...if you don't have a niche product or service, then you'd better get one from some-one else or develop one yourself.

But, just rememberrepparttar 128184 five points above when you've got your niche product and your sales copy ready.
