That’s what Venezuelans spend on average each week looking for basic groceries.

They’ll event get their fingerprints scanned in order to buy them.

But people in the crisis-hit South American country are prepared to do this because they don’t have much choice. Such is the scarcity of the most basic foodstuffs.

But chances are your customers do have a choice.

If you make it longer or more difficult for them to buy, they simply won’t bother.

Yet many businesses still have unnecessarily long registration forms, complicated sign up processes or confusing sales pages with multiple, competing options.

Now that’s more crackers than the situation in Caracas!

Your landing pages need to make it as easy as possible for someone to buy.

That means a clear, simple call to action and a straightforward sign up form.

Along with convincing, objection-busting copy and attention-grabbing headlines.

But if you’re not sure of the best way to put these together, why not let us help?

My team and I have written and set up over a thousand landing pages, for clients ranging from financial institutions to fashion sites.

And we know from the results – and frequent testing – what really drives the most sales.

So if you’d like us to create high-performing landing pages for you, just get in touch here.

The Longcut to More Sales?

by Mike Anderson

I’ll try and keep this brief. After all, that’s the way you have to go with emails, right? Short, snappy messages, with a couple of brief bullet points and lots of “click here” buttons? Wrong.
