The Most Important Tip....
By: John Elder


I'm back!

In Last Week's IssueI talked to you about choosing keywords to get the most site traffic. This week I want to talk about one of the most important tips I have...

I apologize for not writing for several weeks...I've been pretty busy with a few new projects and I've recently taken on more consulting clients than usual.

It's one of these consulting clients that I want to talk to you about today....the story should be pretty useful to you...at least I hope so!

As you probably know, I take on consulting clients from time to time, mainly because I love helping other people develop their web businesses....it keeps things from getting boring around here!

This particular client...I'll call him Jim...came to me with a particular problem.

Jim had a good nack for getting site traffic...he had on average 2,500 to 3,000 site visitors to his web site every day...which is not too shabby!

The problem was, he had little to no sales.

His conversion rates were terrible.

I took one look at his web site and knew immediately what the problem was.

People don't realize that web sites are nothing more than fancy sales letters. If you want to make money with your web site, you have to design the site as a sales letter....and nothing more.

That means you have to use the rules of sales letter writing.

Sales letters have many specific qualities...they start with a headline, (the sole purpose of which is to grab the reader's attention and get them to continue reading the sales letter)...and they continue with a specific set-up and layout (sub-heads, bullet points, etc).

All sales letter (Or I should say, all GOOD sales letters) end the same way as well....with a call to action that gets the reader to take some action (in this case, to order the product or service).

I say this often....if you want to be successful on the Internet, you SIMPLY MUST LEARN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF WRITING A SUCCESSFUL SALES LETTER.

Unfortunately, there's way too much to learn about sales letters for me to write in one article...in fact, I could recommend several killer books on the subject (all less than bucks each).

What I want you to take away from this article is the understanding that you simply must learn how to write a sales letter, and then you need to turn your web site into nothing but a sales letter.

Remove everything else from your site...all the banners, all the splashy and unnecessary graphics...everything but the sales letter.

And watch your sales shoot through the roof....

If you're serious about becoming successful online, I highly advise you to take the first step by learning how to write a sales letter.

It's a skill that you'll use in every aspect of your life... Think about it... you're learning how to convince someone to do something by writing a letter....convincing with words... that's a powerful skill to have, no matter what your profession is....

So take the first step.....read one book on the subject. Here's one that comes with a money back guarantee..(and no, I didn't write it!)..buy it, spend the measly bucks (or less) on it, read it, if you can't immediately see how powerful it's lessons are, throw it away and get your money back...(that's a powerful guarantee - let me tell you!).

The book I'm talking about is the Robert Collier Letter Book... if you've been reading this ezine for a while, you know I think of this book as the bible of sales letter writing...I can't tell you how many thousands of dollars I've earned over the years using the techniques in this book...


The Robert Collier Letter Book you promptly despatched to me arrived this morning in perfect condition. I can't believe no one else has told me of its existence. I am a registered student with the institute of copywriting in England and partway through a Diploma. To-date, I have purchased and studied 14 books on the subject of copywriting, all of them written by America's proven masters of the art. None of them hit the mark in quite the same way as Robert Colliers does. If copywriting was sex, this guy could snap knicker elastic from a 100 yards.

Thank you for recommending this book to me. You deserve to earn the level of income that I suspect you do.
Kind regards

It was written by a man who made millions selling stuff through the mail using nothing but sales letters...and this back during the time of the Great Depression...you can imagine how amazing this man must have been....

...actually you can see for yourself just how amazing his sales letters were because they're right there in his book...he picks apart some of his most successful letters and teaches you exactly why they worked, and how you can duplicate his success.

Like I said, the book comes with a money back guarantee...you've got nothing to lose and the knowledge of a millionaire sales letter writer to gain....

So if you're interested in turning your web site into a cash cow, learn to write a sales letter.....do it today...what the heck do you have to lose?

That's all for this week. See you next Monday!
