I Want You. Now.

In: Online Marketing

…yeah, you.

Not so much in the, take-me-to-bed-tiger kind of way (that's tomorrow. really. just wait.), but in a I-want-to-know-what-you-think kind of way.

Not about the ozone.

Or how much profanity I use.

Or the fact that I apparently suck at responding to emails. (Shhhhhhhhh. I'm getting better!)

I want to know what you think about…

*bongo roll*

…the evil…

…icky…

…topic…

…otherwise…

…known as…

SALES PAGES.

*cue all hell breaking loose*

*cue slow girl who loses shoe amongst chaos*

*cue someone to come bring me to mental ward for writing this kind of shit*

*cue Matthew McConaughey to come visit me in said mental hospital*

Anyway. Sales Pages.

I wanna know what you think of 'em.

Let me tell you why.

The reason is based on the following email conversation that just transpired (republished with permission):

To which I responded:

To which she responded:

So my question is this –

What are your thoughts on what makes for a non-icky sales page?

They're a necessity, if you want to communicate the need-to-know information, but…

What totally turns you off? (And makes you go Xing out the page at lightening speeds.)

What turns you on? (And makes you think, “Mmhmm, yessssssssss” while you twiddle your thumbs with anticipation, and lick your lips?

What do YOU prefer?

 

HOLLA.

What if My Customers Aren’t All the Same? How Do I Appeal to Multiple Targets? It’s called Positioning (And for Once I’m Not Talking About the Kama Sutra)

SELLING YOUR STUFF TO OTHER HUMANS IS HARD. (Caps required.) It’s hard for a number of reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is because nobody really knows what to say. We’re all filled with a million different ugly little self-doubts floating around our nervous little brains. What should the headline say? Do I emphasize […]

You are not anyone’s only option. (…So now what?)

We made out for hours that night. College kids stepped clumsily around us, spilling their beer as much as their morals. It was an era of chunky blonde highlights and boot cut jeans, tanning beds and lacy little lingerie tops from Express. My favorite was champagne & cream colored. I had it on that night. […]

How to Get Your Message HEARD

So, I’m flying from Costa Rica to Ecuador this afternoon. I like to leave these little announcements on the blog in the event of my sudden (and unreported) death, kidnapping, violent torture and just to give my ex-boyfriends a little extra something to be bitter about. If I never post again, will someone at least […]

Cut The Fat.

Cut the fat. Give yourself the white space you need in order to grow. And… …pursue what you’re really here to pursue. Hint: It’s probably the one thing on your to-do list that doesn’t have any guidelines, instructions, paths to follow or tried and true ways of doing it. And that’s exactly why you’re procrastinating […]

Self-Promotion Doesn’t Have to Turn You Into a Self-Absorbed A-Hole

It’s a funny thing, promoting yourself. I’m fairly certain most people would rather have a perfectly minty molar ripped violently from their mouth, using a rusty tool from the 1950’s, performed by a man named Jacque, than they would ever want to dare “sound like they are bragging.” Self-promotion is hard because nobody wants to […]
