    Hi,

    I noticed a couple of things on your landing page.

    1, the amount of text is sending the eyes of the visitor all over the place
    2, the form to sign up is not embedded in the landing page

    Both factors could be affecting your signup rate.

    Launch in the WSO forum it will cost you $40 but worth it.

    Track your visitor behavior with Google Analytics or Clicky.

    You're landing page is WAY TOO distracting...almost impossible to find the optin. You've got to re-tool your graphics!
    Yeah i am tracking it with Google Analytics ... And i think i gotta have to work on a better Landing page ...

    And how to get Targeted traffic .. Do you have any idea ?

    Thanks ..

      I find simple is best when creating opt-in forms.

      Big Bold Headline
      that delivers a big promise.

      A simple paragraph with 4 short bullet points

      And the Call to action button.

      I like white backgrounds. Blue, black, red fonts.

      Images of a fake video screen capture draws attention.

      Don't get me wrong, but allow me to give some suggestions:

      1. Try to use a .com. Most people overlook this, but using a 'weird looking domain name' gets people scared and brings down first impression on the site

      2. Your optin page is confusing-to say the least. Its fully graphic (which means no love from Google for ya) and has content scattered around (which makes it hard for normal readers to read and understand your site) and is GREEN . Well, i don't like that much of green.

      3. Your optin page signup is not easy. You have added one extra "click of the mouse" before your subscribers can sign up. If possible, embed the optin form in the page, rather than point to another link.

      Before you work on #3, I suggest you do something about #1 and #2.

    Getting targeted traffic is a huge part of affiliate marketing....

    Are you sure you should be teaching it if you don't know how to do it yourself?

  • The graphics are nice.

    But:

    1. The '.tc' domain reminds me of those virus sites (i.e., usually have that kind of wierd extension), so I probably wouldn't sign up.
    2. It is a very 'busy' looking graphic. While it does look like a 'professional' graphic -- there is a bit too much. (Looks like a cheesy infomercial).
    3. I am used to seeing spaces/form fields where I can enter my name/e-mail. You have a button that 'takes' you to that, and takes you to an unprofessional looking form field. Would raise a red flag, so I probably wouldn't sign up. Put the fields on the same page.

    You also add an image of a screen capture if you need it.
    I think i am gonna try it .. Sometimes Simple is effective ..

    I think it is gonna be good to Check the the efficiency of both the Landing pages..

    A split test is gonna be good ...

      I took a quick look at your landing page. Truth be told, I wasn't sure if it was some kind of offer or a comic book (er, make that "graphic novel"). Between the "click here" button to sign up and some weird little blinking thing in the corner, I wasn't sure I wanted to do anything but leave.

      My first thought after that?

      Oh, goodie, just what the world needs...yet another 'affiliate marketing for newbies' course stuffed with the same old affiliate links. Yawn...

      You have to offer me some concrete benefits, not just another me-too course with a comic books cover.

    As an honest marketer, I have to say this (please don't take it wrong):

    Your landing page looks very "cheesy"

    It's screaming "Hey! I'm going to sale you something!!"

    Even though you ARE going to sale you something, you need to approach on a different way:

    Instead of taking the "I want you to give me your money" kind of website approach, you should focus on "Hey! I know what I'm doing and I want to help to make money online. That's why I'm sure you're going to love my product" approach.

    What I'm trying to say, is that you SHOULD modify your landing page. That would be not only on my To-Do list for today, but in my MUST-Do list as well.

    Hey there, I don't know what it looked like before, but I just took a look at your page.

    There are a few sentences that aren't working for me:

    14 Days eCourse Divided In Simple Steps. [day, not days]

    Secrets To Make Huge Income In Affiliate marketing. [Give examples, give a screenshot of your computer with your huge income, entice people, show them that you're an expert, and you're successful at what you do - additionally, if you are going to capitalize, then capitalize everything.]


    The same goes for your testimonials. Sometimes uppercase, sometimes mixed, and there are typos. Make sure to proofread your stuff, or get someone to do it for you.



    That said, your page is still leaving me lost. Why should I enter my info on your site? What are you offering? Who are you? What makes your course the best? What's the deal with your domain? What was seen on Google, MSN, Yahoo, Ask, and AOL? Why doesn't he have a favicon? What is that thing in the bottom right? Are you selling two things on one page? Is this guy providing me value or trying to sell me things and make a quick buck?



    I'm not being nitpicky, but these are legit questions I or others may have when they visit your site.

      Very strange. I get a blank page, except for a broken image. When I check the source code, I find a 100% 100% iframe with two headlines and a link in German for free domains.

      Something very hinky going on...

        Just an update...

        Whatever happened overnight, everything seems to be working fine now. Just wanted to make sure that I didn't leave the impression that the OP was doing something wrong.

        As for the page itself?

        HUGE improvement. With a proper presell, it should at the very least give you a fair baseline to test from.

      Doesn't seem to be. Everything checks out.

      I just sent you a PM with the source code I'm getting.

    You need to correct the grammar on the page. For example...

    "A Full-Fledged 14 Days eCourse For FREE" should be
    "A Full-Fledged 14 Day eCourse For FREE"

    I agree with this. Media buy and guest posts for this sort of product would do really well.

    Just test and see what they can do first. It would be well worth the time and or money.
    Okay this seems to be good ... I will try this ..
    Thanks

  • Actually, that does look a lot better now.

    I would remove the 'as seen' on -- because while yes, some marketers recommend using that -- it looks very cheesy saying it's been indexed in search engines. If I saw that, that would be a bit of a turnoff.

    Use a proper domain. The .net.tc one you're using is free. If your users think you can't afford a domain how will they believe you're going to help them make money?

    Anyone using a free domain sets off alarm bells - especially when it comes to internet marketers.

    Just a little tip for people wanting to launch their own course but don't want to create a site, etc. I recently discovered Udemy.com which is a pretty neat site that allows you do do just that. You can basically create your own course about anything and either give it away for free or make money off of it

    I think you could benefit by adding more bullet points. I would move the customer/subscriber testimonials up more so that they are visible, and come up with a better headline.

    luckyshaw290, in two days you've grown your site from something people would bail from to something that can grab opt-ins. Nice. Now keep working on it and use what you are going to teach to promote it further!
