Is your website the face of a product, service or membership? If it is, you may be making the same mistake as the website we're reviewing in this video.
In today’s Website Review, we’re looking at My Fishing Cape Cod, a paid membership site offering a community and resources around fishing at Cape Cod.
The website is home to some fantastically targeted landing pages and copy. So what’s the problem?
Unless button mashing is a hobby, a new visitor would never make it far enough to see those fantastic landing pages. The homepage just doesn’t give them the opportunity to.
How often have you backed out of an article because it looks like a cluttered mess?
You know, when you face a huge wall of text or a page that looks unprofessional, arduous to read or just plain boring?
Then you bounce back to Facebook or whatever tab you were browsing before.
It’s understandable - nobody wants to trudge through a swamp of ugly content.
But here’s the real scary part: what if your readers feel the same when they browse YOUR content?
Great visual design is imperative to keep today's attention deficit users interested.
Luckily, you don’t need to be an artist or have a team of designers at your disposal to create beautiful web content quickly and consistently.
Let's talk about that...
There's a simple principle for optimizing any kind of landing page: make only one offer on the page. Keep everything focused on that one conversion goal you want to lead your visitors to.
But in the real world, things often aren't that simple. Many businesses have multiple offers. Possibly even for multiple, highly diverse target groups. If this is the case, how can you create a good homepage that advertises all your offers without confusing visitors?
That's what we'll discover in today's website review.
Your business is your baby and just like it's a no-no to call a parent's baby ugly, it should be forbidden to give negative feedback online...
At least that’s how any business owner feels when some stranger calls their business ugly with a bad review.
Today it’s easier than ever to vent about a negative experience online and sooner or later, as a business owner, you’ll be confronted with this.
The way you react to that feedback can make the difference between a business with a solid reputation or no business at all.
In this article you’ll discover the 3 errors to avoid at all costs and a framework for reacting to negative feedback. As you'll see, a negative comment can be a terrific way to improve your business if you know how to deal with it...
24 per second = 1,481 per minute = 88,888 in an hour = just above 2.13 million per day.

It's safe to say that just publishing content will not cut it anymore if you want to capture people's attention, keep them engaged and have them interact with your business.
You'll need to step up your game...

Your website may have all the basics right, but still need a lot of improving. Even if you have a good product, a clear offer, a strong headline at the top of your homepage and so on, your site can still benefit from a good scrub-down.
How exactly you can do that is what today's website review video is all about.
Have you ever heard about the 80/20 principle? It's also known as the Pareto Principle and it states that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
Bear with me because, even if you're not into math, this principle will prove itself incredibly useful to improve your website design in very little time.
After looking over hundreds of homepages during the 5 Day Better Homepage Challenge, this principle has proven once again to be true.
Roughly 80% of the websites we looked at had the same troublesome element causing a majority of the problems.
The problematic element? Your background image.
We noticed that you like big, full-screen background images on your homepage.
And we understand. A well chosen image will instantly offer a WOW-effect to visitors.
Unfortunately, the background image was also causing roughly 80% of the problems we identified.
A poorly picked background image will actually hurt the effectiveness of the homepage.
In this article you’ll discover how to pick and create the perfect background image and give your homepage that design boost you’re looking for.
