According to Ryan Deiss, the best font for landing page headlines is Tahoma Red 36 point. “This font just seems to work great in headlines, partly because its san serif and partly because it scrunches up more than a font like Arial, fitting more words per line,” he says, adding that red 36-point Tahoma outperforms all other fonts, increasing conversions by 17%. San serif fonts like Tahoma can give your headline a boost. Adding a drop shadow to your red Tahoma font can give you another 5% boost.
Use a website layout that enhances exploring. Try to keep your page content in a proper narrative and progressive order. Use a simple vertical design for easy visual eye movement and flow.
You may want to start with a good eye-catching headline and a simple description above the fold. Then, tell the visitor about your best features, show your clients’ stories, list people who are using your services or products.
Divide your content into parts, but make sure there is a clear connection between them. This way your visitors can read it like a real story, with no pause or break.
Also remember to have a good visual balance, both horizontally and vertically. Let your readers’ eyes smoothly move from left to right. If one section is left-hand heavy, make the other one right-hand focused, and vice versa.

One second is all it takes.
You blink your eyes and you just lost $1.6 billion…
If you’re Jeff Bezos, that is.
You see, Jeff Bezos (Founder & CEO of Amazon.com) lives in constant fear of the very same thing that is destroying your business even as you read this message.
He is so afraid of this lurking danger in fact, that he has invested millions of dollars in special technology just to ensure that it doesn’t happen to Amazon.com.
What is it that keeps one of the most wealthy online entrepreneurs up at night?
That’s right, a one-second delay on Amazon.com and Jeff Bezos kisses $1.6 Billion in sales goodbye.
It may not be as sexy to talk about as “crushing it” with special offers, or “dominating” a niche, but the speed of your site DIRECTLY affects your bounce rate, which affects your rankings, which affects your traffic, which affects your conversions, and eventually, your site speed starts robbing you of sales.
Now, you may not be losing $1.6 Billion for every second it takes your site to load, but you are losing money, and probably more than you can afford right now.
AND THAT IS JUST SO UNFAIR!
You shouldn’t be losing money on something that can be so quick and easy to fix just because the ‘gurus’ would rather sell you “shiny object” products and “how to get rich in 15 minutes” guides!
It is time that we start addressing this issue as an IM community.
Trust me, fixing site speed is so easy once you know how that you could probably start offering it as a service and it wouldn’t even feel like you were working.

According to SEO expert Trond Lynbo, good information architecture, website structure, and internal link architecture are critical to rank new product pages well. His advice: Link categories from your home page, and your product pages from the category levels. This will ensure that Google finds, crawls, and indexes your content fast. Also link to the new product pages from their parent category pages.
Optimize your website theme so that new products are always presented on your home page where they’ll get found and indexed. A good internal link architecture will get your new product pages indexed and ranked quickly.
You won’t believe this. Heck even I couldn’t believe it once I saw it.

An article on Copyblogger (7/26/13) correctly insists that traffic generated to produce sales or leads should be directed to a landing page created specifically for that offer, and not to your website home page. They write: “The single and solitary goal of a landing page is to overcome the ‘paradox of choice’ dilemma that emerges when people are given multiple options…resulting in a decision NOT to choose at all (read: your sales are dead in the water). And because of this single-minded focus on selling, landing pages convert infinitely higher, whether you are promoting an e-book, membership site, or any other product (digital or not).”
Do you have a box on your home page where people can download a free report, subscribe to your newsletter, or otherwise opt into your e-list? You should also have a dedicated opt-in page. According to entrepreneur Ali Brown, you’ll get up to 10X more opt-ins from a dedicated opt-in page than having it on your home page.
For individuals and small businesses, the cost of hiring an agency to create their website can often be prohibitive. But in recent years there has been a proliferation of website-building programs, which have all the coding included, making DIY website building far easier and much less expensive. That said, there remain many pitfalls, which need to be avoided along the way. If you’re thinking of building your own website, here are some basic tips to get you started.
Naming of your site is crucial, as this is one of the building blocks of your online brand. Web domain names always have a prefix, usually http://, followed by the site name, and then a suffix such as .com or .net. Most of the most common names for these suffixes have now been taken, so a lot of businesses are looking at suffixes including .biz or .info instead.
Choose a domain name that is succinct, relevant, and easy to spell, and give it serious thought! Remember, with any website name, the most important thing is to make it memorable. Think Google—20 years ago the word probably didn’t even exist, but now it’s synonymous with the Internet.
Your site will need to be hosted on an external server. There are many hosting providers you can choose from, and their fees vary depending on the services you require, such as e-commerce solutions or databases. It’s essential to choose one that includes technical support and reliable, fast servers. Use a comparison site such as WebHostingBlueBook.com to find the best option for you.
When it comes to design there are 3 things to keep in mind: Quick Build, High Quality, Low Price. You will rarely be able to achieve all three, so choose one or two, which are most important to you. If you don’t have the time to learn HTML coding yourself, you’ll find it best to use a website template within a content management system, such as WordPress. Once you’ve mastered the basic skills needed, key things to keep in mind include the layout of your site, making it easily navigable by the user, clean and visually enticing, and putting important information in eyeline; selecting good images; making it responsive, so that it will work on mobile or tablet devices; paying attention to your website’s SEO and writing unique and relevant content, and any add-ons you may need such as shopping carts or payment processing.
Before launching your site, double-check everything: your content for spelling or grammar mistakes; that all pages load okay and links work; the information you want on show is there, and anything you don’t want visible isn’t. Far better to spend a few hours checking than risk a problem later on when you don’t have time to respond quickly.
Search Engine Optimisation
SEO is the art of positioning your site as high in search engine results as possible. There are innumerable techniques, and like all Internet disciplines, it’s constantly evolving. The basics are very easy to pick up and implement though, with the most important thing being to keep a constant eye on new developments in the industry to ensure your site is performing consistently in searches. Follow blogs by industry leaders such as moz.com for valuable insights and advice.
Once your site is up and running, it’s vital to keep track of data such as who is visiting it; how they find it (i.e. by typing the site address directly into their browser, or a search engine); which pages they visit; how long the stay on each page, and more. This will help you improve your site and find any flaws. Tools such as Google Analytics make this very easy, and are especially essential for trading websites.
Potential problems abound. Your Webmaster could be taken ill, or your site may be hacked. Be sure to keep a record of important log-in details; keep copies of your website data off-site, and use a hosting provider whose technical support you can rely on.
1. Put the most important words first.
2. Write clear and very descriptive titles for pages.
3. Headline content should be concise and descriptive and stand out from the rest of the text.
4. Lead with the most important messages.
5. Define technical terms in place.
6. Link to pages that have simplified explanations.
7. Spell out and define acronyms.

Most people falsely believe that building a website is super complicated and time-consuming, so they also believe that to get a rockin’ site that attracts tons of traffic is to shell out mega bucks to a fancy web designer.
Conventionally, web designers also build on the myth by designing their clients’ sites the old-school way: putting in more coding than is necessary and adding extra bells and whistles.
Wait, did I just say ‘myth’?

Dealing with the recent Google Panda and Penguin has taught me that building brand new websites can be a crap shoot, which is why buying established websites can be a much more effective method. Rather than writing content, building backlinks and waiting a few months for Google to love the site (if ever) you can just buy existing websites with already established traffic and income instead.
The only problem is actually finding websites worth buying!
Well, a brand new tool is designed to do just that. This tool works with the Flippa marketplace to provide you fast access to crucial data to more quickly determine if a website is worth investing in, or whether you should move onto the next one.
Site Finder Pro is a massive time saver and crucial for anyone serious about finding high quality websites worth buying.
