    Kramer,

    First off, you are pitching an order button without any price AND when the reader does click on the button to buy, it redirects them to yet another sales letter. Doing this is a distraction to the prospects mind. It will confuse them, and ultimately you will lose sales.

    I assume this is a pre-sell sales letter for a product you are an affiliate with?

    If so, you should give some good value (perhaps expose one of these hidden secrets) within your pre-sell sales letter and raise the desire of the prospect... then redirect them properly to the other guy's sales letter.

    What would be a proper redirect? Well, just by telling them if they would like to discover more of these not-so-hidden secrets (or whatever) then they should go here and check this out...

    That would be the first thing I would change with your letter. As it stands now, people are assuming you are selling the product and when they click ORDER they will be buying the product. But, this is not the case. So, your approach is all wrong from the get go.

      Ack. Thanks so much, Jo_Shua. I can't believe I missed putting a price on there.

      You're correct. It's an affiliate piece. With that said, perhaps it may be better to just send prospects to the shopping cart instead of the creator's landing page.

    Overall it looks a little tacky and samey. It looks like one of those pages people see and immediately know its a pitch. It should be a site that offers a real service, not one that seems like a copy/paste of a million other sites selling scammish goods. I would never let a site like that leave stage one of development, it's just too predictable.

        I agree, getting sent to the other sales page is distracting. I don't know what key words you are targeting, dubai or middle east jobs specefic or employment more in general.

        Some ?'s I have (from the perspective of your traffic)...how much money can I make? Average income of expats from US and/or Europe? What type of jobs? Cost of living (only mention if comparatively low...) security (I've been to 2 war zones, but I bet the average person would be very tentative about moving to Dubai).

        I think with some tweaking (that I'm not experienced enough to tell you how), your sales page could be better than the offer page and you could direct link to the cart with good success. I do think you need some very enticing bullets.

        As a job seeker, I would want to know what I can expect to make in various career fields and all the benefits of Dubai. I don't want to buy the guide only to find out I'm not qualified for any 6 figure positions needed and could only make 50K with whatever my skills are...I'd be getting a refund post haste.

    I would have did a simple video squeeze page instead and collected their names/email. That way it would not be a one time affiliate customer.

    Also, I don't think you are getting to the heart of why someone wants a job in Dubai. You need to make a better emotional pitch.

    I have no agenda but to help those in the same situation. This I feel will pay the bills.
