  • You don’t have to have your website already, or be in the process of a redesign - it’s always a good time to take this course. I only ask that you come with an open mind and be prepared to do the exercises and take action.
  • I suggest having a notebook to take notes - you might also want to print out the action plans from each lesson to support you.

This course will teach you how to make your website easier to use for the people who want to give you money - without you needing a lot of technical skills to make changes or spending lots of money on web designers and programmers.

I created this course for business owners who want practical, straightforward business advice they can put into action right away. Most classes on the market about website optimization (also known as “conversion rate optimization”) are full of complex, generic theories – I’m tossing all that out the window and sharing real advice to use right away.

Some topics we'll cover:

  • Why the way you’ve been talking to your Ideal Customers is killing your sales. You need to learn to speak in a voice they will understand and respect as an authority in your niche. I’ll show you how.
  • What web-user profiling can tell you about how to design and write for your site. These methods are so effective, your customers will wonder how you read their minds! How much easier would it be to make a sale if you knew precisely what your potential customers were thinking?
  • How to compete for attention when you’ve only three seconds to grab your visitors’ attention. You'll find this to be a hair-raising, eye-opening experience.
  • The secret to getting your customers to tell all their friends about your product or service. Nothing works better than word-of-mouth and this book will show you how to get it easily and consistently.
  • Simple changes you can make right now to improve your online conversion rate. You’re a busy professional and have more important ways to spend your time than learning the technical ins-and-outs of web design. So start with these “quick wins.”

Each section includes its very own “Action Plan” – short lists of prompts and critical action steps can be put to use immediately to start improving your sales.

This course comes with a 30-day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. Get started with improving your website and making more money today.

  • Internet based business owners or managers
  • Online marketers and advertisers
  • Individuals with limited online advertising budgets or traffic
