Zeit ist GeldI once saw an aspiring online marketer complain on Facebook about the size of his list.

“I have almost 2000 people on my blog’s email list! Soon Mailchimp will start to charge me $30 per month, and my blog doesn’t generate this much right now,” he said.

That person has 2000 readers loyal enough to give him their emails… but no idea how to build on that relationship and start generating revenue.

No wonder they say blogging is dead!

Are You Missing the Boat When It Comes to Increasing Your Online Sales?

It’s the day after your very successful launch. You’re feeling pretty good about how the launch went, and the number of sales that you made. Now, you’re looking at the numbers: how many came to your sales page? How many people arrived on your checkout page? How many people purchased?

As you’re sorting through the numbers, you notice that there’s a difference between the number of people who arrived on your checkout page, and the number of people who actually purchased. That’s no good – you worked hard to connect with people who are genuinely interested in your product or service. To have them bail out just before making the purchase seems like a huge waste!

Unfortunately, this discrepancy between people who arrive on your checkout page, and the number of sales you make, is common in online marketing. The fancy term is “cart abandonment rate,” which means that your potential client abandoned the sales process just as they were about to pay for your product or service.

The good news is that, while it’s highly unlikely you’ll avoid this problem completely, there are several ways to reduce the chances that your potential clients will drop off your site before making a purchase. Master these techniques, and you’ll increase your online sales by quite a bit!
