Make it Easy to Buy From Your Custom Website
To help someone buy from you, or to get somebody on your email list.
If that is the case, then you know that it's not easy to get a total stranger to buy from you without some crafty words on the screen to help persuade them.
And if you confuse your prospects, even once, they'll click right off your page.
This article will give you some tips to make your custom website easy to buy from.
First of all, your order form must be easy to spot and easy to access.
It's best to use a link for your order form.
The best converting ones are usually large and green and will have the words "click here to buy now" on the button.
Make sure the link opens in a new tab so you don't risk confusing or scaring your visitor away.
Offer several ways for them to pay you.
The following list in an absolute must.
All major credit cards (there are 4 of them) and PayPal.
You can even allow them to pay by check.
The more options you have for them to pay you the better chance you'll have at closing the sale.
You worked hard to get your prospect this far, don't lose them at the closing table.
Offer a 100% no hassle money back guarantee.
The longer the guarantee the better.
I've seen guarantees for as long as one year for a product.
Make your guarantee strong.
You can use something like "If you are not completely thrilled that you purchased this product, you have a full 365 days to review and send it back for a prompt and courteous refund, no questions asked.
" Make your prospect feel comfortable about the purchase.
Your custom website should really be on a secure server.
And if it's not on a secure server, then your payment processing company should definitely be on a secure server.
Ensure the padlock security seal is at the bottom of the order form as well.
Testimonials are always a good idea.
Make sure you use unsolicited testimonials.
Ensure they use their name, where they are from, city, state and county.
This usually helps people in their buying decision if they see that other people, just like them, have purchased this product without issues.
It's a shame to work so long and hard on your custom website only to drop the ball on the payment part.
Make sure your website is easy to buy from and your sales will take off in no time.
