It’s The Basis Of My Own Business

Posted 5th July 2016 at 09:22 PM by mikemcmillan

Invariably, when someone asks me about the biggest secret to success in the info product business I reply with the same answer. It’s a simple thing but it’s at the core of how I create my own products.

The first thing is to realize that without an online sales page for your product that converts well you really have nothing.

What I always recommend is that one puts together a draft of their sales page BEFORE they actually create their product. No, it doesn’t have...

Make Your Sales Page Load Faster

Posted 5th July 2016 at 09:18 PM by mikemcmillan

If it takes more than just a very few seconds for your product sales page to load, visitors will click away in droves. There is no magic number but if your page is taking more than three seconds to load you need to work some magic on it.

One problem is when someone creates a new sales page they will visit it frequently while creating and tweaking up the copy. Their web browser will cache the page content. The browser does this because the content, especially the images, will load...

The Sticky Function...

Posted 25th January 2010 at 08:57 PM by mikemcmillan

Creating an ebook that could be described as being “sticky” probably wasn’t on your mind, but let’s think about it.

In order for an idea, a trend, or a product to catch on and spread requires that when people are exposed to it, it kedges keenly in their mind. You want it to stick!
