Almost everything is available on web… products, services, e-books, software, audios, videos, membership sites, or newsletters. Regardless of what you’re promoting, there’s a never-ending supply of prospects and customers on world-wide-web. Your goal is to capture and turn those prospects into paying customers.
Perhaps best avenue is by use of graphics. Three important sections of graphics that should be used for a compelling website are 1) header graphics 2) product cover and 3) background graphics.
Let’s start at top with header graphics. Without excellent quality header graphics it won’t much matter what’s on rest of page. Here’s why. Once a prospect clicks on your site you’ve got approximately 8 seconds to convince him to continue with information you’re providing. You only get one chance to make a dynamic first impression.
The next area is your product cover. No matter what you’re selling you should have a product cover. Even if you’re promoting services you should still have a graphic image. People want to see what they are getting for their money. There’s no better way to do it than with a picture. There’s an old saying, “ You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Guess what? Most people do exactly that! Their opinion is based upon a visual image. Even as you read, your mind creates visual images of perception of words. Make sure your product cover fits bill. Don’t sell this area short!
