What do you think about spending $10,000 on this website?

Hey warriors,

Just need expert opinions and criticisms. Just started developing this one-page website: https://bizhelpinc.com. I've used the offer on one of my websites and it converted really well. So now I want to run it on a completely independent domain with an independent hosting, and a different landing page, etc.

I plan on spending at least $10,000 over the next 60 days running ads to it. Kindly tell me if there's any thing you see on the page that will turn you off from opting in - like copy, design etc. Also let me know if there's any other thing you think I should add to the page!

Also let me know what you think of the domain name and website speed as these are critical to conversions.

Have ran a small test but want to gain more insights from folks like you. Thanks in advance.

P.S - I purposely stripped out the optin code in the form for special reasons

Once again, the address is: https://bizhelpinc.com

P.P.S - Still working on the logo and a few other things. Also let me know if there's any other thing you think I should add to the page to make it a conversion monster

    I can see some folks visiting already without chipping in their opinion. Please you don't have to be an expert to say something. If anything strikes you or repels you or just about anything you feel about the page, kindly let me know.

    I will appreciate it a million times. I can't run a test or survey my list on this issue, would have gladly done so without disturbing any warrior

    If you actually have 10k to spend on ads why not use 1k to hire a professional designer? You don't even have a logo! I personally don't like the design too much.

    Sorry i didn't read you are still working on the logo but still the design is just too simple. I won't buy from this site. I won't even download anything for free. Looks like one of those cheap clickbank product sites. Sorry don't want to be mean, i am being honest and giving my personal feedback, which is just my opinion of course. But the good thing is that you haven't wasted money yet. So hire a designer that can do an awesome job, even for 300 bucks and then launch the ads. Speed is really good.

    I agree with SCrafted. It could use a better design. Also, you might want to have a couple variations to split test if you're going to be driving that much traffic to it.

    I don't think the design is bad.

    There are some elements here that work, but there are some that don't.

    You definitely need a logo, and your eCover could really use a face lift.

    To me, the thing that really stands out is your offer. It's really confusing.

    And your headline sucks.

    You're promising too many different things to too many groups of people.

    Focus on getting your offer straight, and using a punchy headline.

    You also need to call out a very specific group of people that you are trying
    to appeal to.

    Good luck!

    Business to Business is one of my favorites. They have budgets and they know about investing back into their business.

    Your site was much better than I anticipated. The " Biz" word always comes with a warning in the back of my brain for some reason.

    So its a landing page. And really it will never matter what any of us share because the key there will be your Testing Testing Testing. From everything to the color of your download button to checking out the heat screen patterns of your visitors.

    This part below....maybe could be above the download button because if they already passed the button they may not be coming back up to push it.

    Free For A Limited Time Only

    A Value Of
    $149


    So with paid traffic do that testing every step of the way even when you are profiting it can always be improved upon. Good luck!

    My first impression is that for an offer to teach selling without being sales-y, the copy is awfully sales-y.

    The testimonials are a bit over the top. "Louis and his badass team"? Please...

    Add the $149 value, free for "a limited time", and you have blown any concept of NOT being sales-y.

    Since the logo and design are in process, I didn't worry about those.

    The lady in the testimonial photo looks 50 something. The testimonial doesn't match up to how someone like her would talk.

    10k is a decent budget. I would invest in guaranteed stock. Or atleast half of the 10k and use the other 5k for testing your site.

    But I would never test 10k unless I'm sitting on 250k.

    It depends on your target market.

    I personally would bounce right off that page. It strikes me as amateurish and spammy.

    Huge warning sign for me!

    You seem to be targeting (it's hard to tell) established business people, so...

    Take that 10K and blow it on hookers and Jack Daniels...you'll feel better afterwards.

      Probably why you haven't been successful in your online business till this day

      That one lead magnet has been downloaded from somewhere on one of my websites since 2014!

      buahahhahahahha this made my day...

      By the way, you already have a product that you say is converting well so don't worry too much... You have done the hard part. A one page website is easy and quick to redisign. Hire a designer that can deliver a great site for 300 bucks or less. What are you waiting for? You have 10k available for this business...

    The site loaded faster than I expected on my desktop computer. The home page looked nice but maybe a little better copy on it or little more color. I would test a few things at 1/4 of what you have suggested on spending. Spending a small amount on traffic you have a base to test with. If it works well than add in more like a third of the 10k and see the results again. Good Luck.

    You said "converted really well". That's too vague and not enough info.

    Conversion rate? net profit? In what timeframe? etc.

    I think some of that money and time should be spent making another landing page so you can split test it against the current one. Then, when you figure out which one of the 2 is the winner, use that one and make yet another one and test that against your winner. Then you can start spending larger amounts on advertising once you've figured out what design coverts best.

    You should just be an angel investor. Or atleast test 1k and if it works then add another 2k. But to just put the entire 10k in is risky for the responses that you are getting thus far.

    Good luck.

    You would think a guy spending $10,000 on ads would at least have one personal mentor and ask him for questions and critiques.

    Asking this on a public forum and you'll get all sorts of answers.

    Probably from people who don't know a clue about design, coding, copywriting, sales or marketing.

    You're saying that your ebook was "Downloaded 14,208 Times and Counting".

    I think that number is high enough for you to split test everything and know for sure whether you should keep investing in paid ads or not, right?

    If you got close to 15k downloads and you're still profitable, keep on doing what you did - why bother asking for advice anyway?

    From my experience, in order to get a high conversions on your landing page - that traffic should be presold long before they land on your page.

    For instance, if you're targeting people who are exactly interested in say "selling without selling" or "how to sell without being salesy" they would opt-in regardless of your copy, design, logo, how your page looks and all of that stuff.

    Those things are just the little things.

    Yes, I've seen improvement after adding video to my landing page, but that's not the case for everyone. And what works in one niche, doesn't in another, etc.

    So if you target the right people, I think that page would convert just well.

    Obviously the traffic is important, what you tell them before they arrive to your landing page is important.

    And all of that stuff.

    However, I also don't understand it when you say I've got $10,000 to spend on THIS site.

    One doesn't spend $10,000 on any campaign without having at LEAST a few A/B split tests.

    For instance one page can be the same as this one.

    On the other one, you can include a video.

    On the third one, you can try different colors on your buttons.

    And when you discover that golden, highest converting landing page - you just eliminate the lowest converting but still keep on testing because hey, the goal is to have 100% conversion rate, right?

    Anything less than that and you should improve!

    I know 100% is unreachable, but that also means that you'll always try to improve - which is a good thing!

    I guess the secret to selling more without being sales-y, is to be salesy even when you're not selling anything.

    You should use multiple ways to increase your site traffic. Beside your planning, you can hire a freelancer to do the following task for long time. Forum posting, Relevant blog commenting, Article submission & so on. Thanks for your interest.

    There is no reason to spend $10,000 upfront. That's ridiculously risky.

    Instead, spend a few hundred and see if the page is profitable for you.

    Only spend more if it is already making money.

    Hi,

    Just had a look, and agree with most on thread, design thing mainly but i see you have that in hand, also notice you have a https so secure, thats helps....you have a terms of service, maybe you can add a privacy policy aswell to reassure customers and you have to have it if your running google PPC and google generally likes it and will help rank a bit better.

    Hope that helps,

    Many people here have said it and they're right - split test!

    AS FOR DESIGN SUGGESTIONS:
    1. lose the header at the top all together, it's not attractive
    2. split test another version with a darker background - I think the contrast will make the text pop
    3. once you know what back ground works, mess with the "18" it just doesn't look right

    Don't blow 10K on traffic unless you know you have improved the conversion and you have the best possible version.

    Honestly, it's your money man, but I wouldn't blow that kind of budget if I was feeling the need to present it here.

    1 last question - what kind of ROI are you getting for that 10k? Just my 2cents

    Looked in my email including the junk area. There was no email from you.
    Please do not waste your money.
