Web Site Promotion: 42 Deadly Ad Copy Sins To Avoid, To Ensure Rapid Success


Visitors: 610

Most people who are not doing well on the internet with their website don’t know the cause.

They worry that they are not generating traffics.

But they have never paused to ask why the visitors they are getting are not buying from them.

I have been to many good websites as well as bad ones.

Most of the bad ones have many design flaws.

Some ask you to place an order with a credit card, and yet they have no information about the company such as the company’s physical address, phone and e-mail.

Some of the corporate websites have very small fonts which are difficult to read.

Some have too many graphics and photos which cause the loading of the website to slow down.

Some websites will not allow you to see the content until you have subscribed to their e-zines, whether you like it or not.

You have to go back to your website and re-examine it thoroughly because you may have committed many design sins that may be turning your website visitors off and make you to lose sales.

You may never get the design right easily at the first time.

The trick is to keep changing and testing the content.

Don't just write one and then stop.

Learn from your mistakes and keep moving on, always testing, revising and improving your website for greater impact and profitability.

Below are some design sins to avoid so as to succeed in your website promotion.

They will help you to empower your website and sky rocket your sales.

(1) Lack of compelling headline
