(7) Testimonials. These will also dramatically increase your sales. If you don't have any, ask your customers for them. Every testimonial will always contain a key phrase or benefit - make that phrase leap out atrepparttar reader by using bold type. Always providerepparttar 131839 website and/or email address ofrepparttar 131840 person who wroterepparttar 131841 testimonial. If you makerepparttar 131842 website URL and active link, you'll get more testimonials - but you'll also lose traffic when your visitors click on those links.

(8) Bonus Gifts. Offering freebies with your product is an old trick in web marketing - nearly everyone does it. My advice is takerepparttar 131843 freebies off. Why? Firstly, chances arerepparttar 131844 freebies you offer are also being offered by hundreds of other websites - your visitors have seen them all before and are not impressed. Secondly, offering freebies sendsrepparttar 131845 message that your product is not really worth it on its own.

(9) Unique Selling Proposition. You must differentiate your product from your competitors' products. One way to do this is to have a 'Warning' nearrepparttar 131846 bottom of your page that says "Do not buy an eBook on XYZ unless it meetsrepparttar 131847 following criteria..." And then listrepparttar 131848 unique features of your eBook (or product).

(10) A Call to Action. This isrepparttar 131849 biggest cause of lost sales. Most people procrastinate - so you must create a sense of urgency. You can do this in various ways - a price rise after a certain date, a price rise after a certain number of copies have been sold, or a bonus report forrepparttar 131850 next 15 orders.
