Need input

rinkjustice Hi, you probably notice by my website that I'm trying some new things. It's not the typical ebook-selling website. Price point wise, I know I'm too low, but do any of you have any suggestions you could offer on how I could pick up sales and what I could price my ebook at?


Thanks everyone!

Storyman Hi RinkJustice,

Nice looking site and clever idea.

Take a moment and look at it from a user's p.o.v. who has used a search engine for weight loss and your site comes up in the listing. They click from one listing to another and give it one or two seconds to grasp if the site has what they are looking for and if it doesn't grab them they are back to the list of other sites.

In a way the site is 'too clever' because a user scans (not skims) a site and the site gives mixed messages between being a site about comic superheros. For example, if one scans the heading "Zero to Superhero", "Burn, Baby Fat, Burn!", looks at the graphic,  then the graphic's caption, "Mass Hysteria!", it is easy for the viewer to associate the four elements and think that it is a site about comic book heros.

No where on the home page is there anything about weight-loss, healthy living, improve your health, etc.  You know what the site is about, but making the visitor 'think' to figure out that the ebook titles aren't episodes of the baby superhero runs the risk of being misinterpreted.

Instead of 'Available Episodes' consider something like 'Zero to Superhero Weightloss Plans". You don't have to hit the reader over the head, but provide better word anchors that tell them what you have to offer. Right now the message is too subdued in the catchy phrases.

rinkjustice Wow, you're right storyman. You are amazing - seriously. I am way too close to this thing to know good from bad anymore.

Again, thank you for the clarity!

Nightshift Sales on my one site was the direct result of writing articles and posting them to the different sites.  you can buy a automated article submitter if you visit my article directory, its on the right hand side of my site
