A Selling Reinforcement Plan will detail exactly where your website can be improved. See Newsletter 33 - "Ten Problems That Will Destroy Your Website's Selling Effectiveness" for more details.
The majority of modern websites are weak in selling effectiveness. Break any one of these Ten Commandments and you join that crowd. Why not go for a perfect 10 and give yourself a chance?
[S] 1. Design for your target market niche
[S] 2. Trumpet your USP (Unique Selling Proposition)
[S] 3. Let your satisfied customers talk
[V] 4. Don't use FRAMES
[V] 5. Don't rely only on Flash and Images
[V] 6. Titles must feature keywords
[U] 7. Make it easy to get around the website
[U] 8. All Visitors must see the website, whatever their browser
[C] 9. Don't be Faceless and Anonymous
[C] 10. Absolutely no Typos
Ask your web designer to confirm that your website is a perfect 10. 10 doesn't guarantee success, but score less and you certainly will be the loser.
