The invisible cost of website sales being lost

 'The single
biggest cost website owners incur is the invisible cost of sales being
lost.' Since it is invisible, you have to look HARD and DEEP to see it.
Are you willing to do that? Do you have a website? Would making 10x-100x more
than you are now be important to you? The next few paragraphs can help you
accomplish that and it is free for the reading. You are even entitled to disagree with me but you would be 100% wrong. Don't get those feathers ruffled yet. I am gonna make anyone who reads the following and has the NERVE to understand it, a LOT of money.

This is the 3rd
time I have pointed this out during this short blog. But I have never devoted
the time to dissect this ONE piece of the puzzle. This KEY piece.

Let's start like
this. The last thing I will tell you why this is so important to me.
But I WILL tell you. But before I do this let's look at this the right way. If
you have a store on
Main Street or in the mall and 1000 people walked in and NOBODY bought anything, would you
continue to do business as usual or would you make some adjustments? Well if
you do nothing, you will soon be out of business. On the net, MANY think there
is a different equation. Are they kidding? If you make no sales, you will soon
be out of business.

So let's say you
sell widgets. 1000 customers come to your website and nobody buys your widgets.
You think that is OK??? You close 1 in 1000 and you think THAT is OK??? You
accept that? Are you nuts? You would not accept this in the REAL world and you
should not accept that in the VIRTUAL world.

Assuming you
have good widgets and there is a market for your widgets then there are
techniques to close more sales by improving your website and your customer
service. Why do so few even talk about this? Well how many people in the
universe even know about this subject? Then from there you have to separate the
ones that actually know what the hell they are talking about from the ones
that are full of crap.

All I can tell
you for a FACT (assuming you have a good product or service) it does not take a
lot of effort to take 0 in 1000 or 1 in 1000 to 10 in 1000 and maybe 100 in

And NOW the
REASON why I am so hung up on this single BOTTLENECK. When I send traffic to
folks that are only closing 1 in 1000 I am making a fraction of what I could be
making if they closed more sales. So for every million I make TODAY, that same
traffic could easily earn 10x that. 100x that. THAT is the reason. Selfish as
it is from where I sit, it's not selfish to tell merchants that they are aiming
LOW when they should be aiming HIGH. Merchandising a website is no different
than your physical store. Your traffic flow is no different than your physical
store. But to be blunt, it takes a different set of talents to close a sale on
your website than it does in your store on
Main Street  or in the mall. Wine is wine
until you find a connoisseur to explain the difference between a $5 bottle of
wine and a $500 bottle. Art is art until you find an expert to show you the
difference between a $10 print and a $10 million original. So if you want to
see what is not visible to YOUR EYE you need to find folks that have the talent
so you can use THEIR EYE!

The problem is
probably only a few hundred people on the planet have such a talent, maybe
less. So you either have to find them (And they are likely not available) or
learn to see this for yourselves. The best I can do is introduce you to this
line of thinking. How did I learn? Lots of experimenting over many years
with hundreds of millions of unique visitors to my domain names. I had to learn
to make lemonade from lemons from the ground up and using virtual lemons.

'The single
biggest cost website owners incur is the invisible cost of sales being
lost.' I cannot repeat this enough. Not visible to the naked eye. At least
an UNTRAINED naked eye. I see it like I see the screen in front of me. It is
THAT clear. I hope you can see what I see. If you don't see's not
because it is not there.

Have a GREAT Day!
