    Didn't have time to read everything on the site but is your ebook the training course? I didn't really see anything clearly leading to an ebook, just the training course which has a high price tag. I would have suggested that you put it on Amazon Kindle but I don't think they support a Kindle ebook in that price range.

    Perhaps you could make the benefits of what you are selling much clearer- it's a bit 'dry' in the sense that you are listing the features of the books and courses but not in a way that really generates excitement. People want to know how to trade for one thing... to make money! Make it clear how your products will help them do that.

    Looks like your site needs a make over. Consider visiting the warrior for hire section to hire someone or a couple of designers and copywriters to give that site a new look, sound and feel. It just looks like a lot of words and you may not be fully equipped to make it the best possible since your primary skills seem to be in Stock trading.

    Also, the strategy for getting prospects to sign up to a newsletter/autoresponder series and get them to the order button to buy immediately or after getting some free training from you needs to be sorted out. Look for a mentor online and pay for the help. It will save you tons of hard work and stress trying to go it alone. From what I can see on your site, you need much more than a few tips here and there you need a complete overhaul of the site and your on site and perhaps offsite marketing strategies.

    Best of luck,

    Kunle

    Hello,

    The website appearance is like that of a news article as opposed to an introduction of your products/system. You may wish to invest a bit more into your sales copy, if that is the purpose of the front page.

    The items that are listed for sale are a bit "understated", in that they do not stand out in a remarkable way; they interrupt a flow of text that doesn't hold the reader's attention very well. So, by the time they reach the product, they may ask themselves exactly what is the product all about.

    You may wish to showcase the products on separate pages, with improved sales copy. The long text intro doesn't evoke a great deal of interest. This is based on appearance, not on content. Your detailed content seems great; you just need to showcase the actual products a bit better and create an "easy on the eyes" experience for the reader.

    Good luck.

      If a $499 ebook constantly churns out a 125% ROI .. is it too expensive? I wouldn't buy any ebook he is presenting for $3 because I have no idea what is in them .. still ...

      There is a lot of ebooks selling every day that falls outside of the $7 WSO price range.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    So generally people suggest working on the appearance of the site. Ill get onto that! Is it agreed that i should set up a short intro homepage (mildly concerned about the negative SEO of a small homepage) and then more detailed pages within the site explaining the product in more depth?

    I am not really interested in developing a list and creating other products to sell, wanted to make this site relatively passive once set up right.

    Any other offsite ideas to promote either the site or the ebook/course?

    Many thanks!

    I just don't see how anyone would dish out a few hundred bucks for these ebooks unless you talk to investors on the phone and sell them on them..

    But as far as someone actually going to your site and buying isn't feasible, you need to work or hire someone to work on creating a good sales page or videos that build on the value of the products..

    Good luck man

        It is a redirect from their dot com which is a sneaky way of implying you are smarter than the mods here .. bet that goes over well :-)

    If this is a sales/landing page remove every link other than the "Buy" button.

    Sell only one product per sales/landing page. Too many choices lead to inaction.

    I didn't read the copy, because it's too dense visually and the headline immediately turned me off. Traders have read these types of get rich quick and easily headlines thousands of times before. You need to come up with something far more compelling -- far more eyeball grabbing. The headline is 80% of the sales letter.

    Also, nobody wants to learn anything -- they want it done for them. Even though you're going to teach them something you have to make your pitch read as if you're handing them the goods on a silver platter -- and they'd have to be nuts to not accept your offer.

    What are you considering ok sales?

    It amazes me you sold any for the price without giving a lot more information.

    The ebooks could easily be worth a lot more than you are asking for them .. I don't know and have no idea from the sales page.

    Site needs a little pep. Change the fonts and font sizes up a bit. I was kinda dozing off after reading the first few sections. Maybe a background color also? Just seems a little blah. Lots of information but nothing that makes it exciting to read.

    Thanks everyone. Time for some action.

    How do I go about finding a mentor? What sort of cost is involved for a website concept overhaul?

    Thanks
