    I wanted to know if anyone has any tricks of the trade to make your site stand out from the rest of the world's sites. For example: How to add cool graphics and text. Anything that would make it look different.

    Jenn,

    It is not so important to your long term online success who has the best graphics and the best looking site on earth.

    The most important thing is to bring in as much traffic to it as possible.

    Content. Content. Content.

    Graphics are great don't get me wrong, but give your readers content that has not been regurgitated thousands of times and they will keep coming back and become paying customers

    I agree content is the key, people can spend time reading quality posts or just admiring the design for two seconds!

    kenwrites: Content. Content. Content.

    Adding to what Ken has said, if you focus on developing content/services that other webmasters would gladly link to or recommend to others, success will run after you. And that's how it works in offline world. Online world is no different. It's just the quick pace of the Internet that has made us forget the basics and run after the results instead of focusing on the doing.

    I have been getting quite a bit of traffic to my sites and my blogs, so I must be doing something right.

    Does anyone know the percentages in the way of visitors vs. buyers once they visit your site? What I mean is how many visitors to your site must you see to get one sale............100 visitors to 1 sale, etc. I am just curious to know if anyone knows the ratio.

    Jenn,

    No one can tell you because every opportunity, ebook, and membership site has different conversion rates.

    Some stuff that you will be selling online will convert at 1%.

    Other stuff that you will be selling will convert at only 0.5%.

    Other stuff will convert for you at even 5%.

    It all comes down to what you sell, how you sell it, and to who you sell it.

    That's exactly correct! Because there are so many variables, there can be no absolute default conversion rate.

    What you can do, however, is experiment with your marketing strategy, tweak your advertising copy, optimize your site's SEO and fine-tune every element in the promotional mix, till you discover what works best for you.

    It's the only way to maximize your results.
