7 sales page secrets

Sales Page conversion rates can make or break your digital marketing campaign.

What if you could bump your rate from just one to two percent?

That’s a 100% increase in sales. And all of a sudden, your ROI could go from negative to positive, making it worthwhile to scale up your campaign.

In the following case study, we’ll take a look at a successful sales page. If I’m not mistaken, legendary copywriter Gary Bencivenga wrote the copy for this page. (Gary, please correct me if I’m wrong!)

Given his predilection for accountability in advertising, it’s quite reasonable to assume this page has been thoroughly tested and tweaked for results.

Sales Page Tip # 001
They say pictures tell a thousand words. And in this case, the mouthwatering images sell the benefits of learning more from this page. How could you resist?

Branding creates trust

Sales Page Tip #002
Just below the images, you immediately see a banner proclaiming the brand. Note that the brand tells a story in itself. Note also the background color. The fresh green look conveys something about the flavor and freshness of the product… Not only that, it’s well known that green is a relaxing color and also connotes a sense of wealth, encouraging visitors to feel there’s real value here.

Sales page as an “Announcement”…

Sales Page Tip # 006
News sells. People want to know what’s going on. The “announcement” tells you something new has arrived… Like a gift under the Christmas tree, the reader gets a chance to feel that excitement of unwrapping it to see what’s inside… You’ve got to read on to scratch that itch…

“Hi there, I’m for real…”

Sales Page Tip # 007
Too many sales pages look lifeless because THERE’S NOBODY THERE… Just you and this cold computer screen. This page, on the other hand, has a real person looking you straight in the eye, friendly, welcoming, sincere… All of a sudden, you feel like you’re talking to the guy at your local farmer’s market… That sense of authenticity is so rare on the web, it’s like a breath of fresh air… You immediately feel at home here… That this is a place you can trust.

So, there you have it — seven ways to squeeze more sales out of your sales pages.
