Written by David Bell

So your website is getting visitors, but not enough are buying. A common online problem, unfortunately. Here are twelve common faults found with websites that don't sell. If you answer no to any of them, you need to take action. 1)Does your text focus on emphasizingrepparttar benefits andrepparttar 135622 resultsrepparttar 135623 customer will get from purchasing and using it? Sales copy needs to be focused onrepparttar 135624 benefits torepparttar 135625 end user, not onrepparttar 135626 features ofrepparttar 135627 product. Listrepparttar 135628 features, and then translate them into benefitsrepparttar 135629 customer will get. Move away from "our Widget does this, this and this.." to "You will soon be doing this .." 2)Does your website convey enough strong benefits? Brainstorm to come up with a list of benefits. Rank them in order of importance. Then mention them in order throughoutrepparttar 135630 text, best first. Summarizing them with bullet points too also works great. 3)Does you text stimulaterepparttar 135631 emotions? People buy withrepparttar 135632 heart notrepparttar 135633 head - so try and stimulate emotions - use words to paint a picture of life after they've bought your product " Imaginerepparttar 135634 freedom of no more back pain..." or " worries could soon be a thing ofrepparttar 135635 past, and you could soon be taking those exotic vacations...". 4))Doesrepparttar 135636 headline grab and draw you in? You've got to try to stop them dead in their tracks withrepparttar 135637 headline. Userepparttar 135638 best benefit of your product, and create interest so they read on. Make it hard hitting, but not unbelievable. 5)Do you have a call to action? People put off decisions, even if they're 90% sold on your product, they may still decide to "sleep on it". Don't let them have time to forget - give them an incentive to purchase now - discounts, bonuses etc. 6)Does your website load and function ok? Slow load times may cause people to get impatient and go elsewhere, even though it registers a visit. Do all links work, and more importantly, have you tested your order page by running dummy orders? 7)Do you have any testimonials from satisfied customers?

Testimonials are everywhere online, and people expect them as a matter of course. Ask those who have purchased what they thought -email them a simple customer satisfaction survey, offer a freebie for replying and userepparttar 135639 best comments. If your product is free,try a testimonial swap with a seller of a complementary (but not directly competing) product -offer to review his product if he reviews yours.
