1. Each product should have it’s own unique web page. Don’t just put all of your products together on one page just to save time and money on web hosting. You’re site should focus on a single product or service or theme.
Product reviews are a great way to increase sales. People like to be recommended by other customers and it is a good idea to also include testimonials on your website. This creates a level of trust with the identified product. Before using testimonials make sure you have an authorized permission by the customer or purchase and also get them to include a photo.
You should include articles about your products on a separate page. Make the page look attractive and compelling by highlighting the benefits and features of the product. Use a string call to action such as a “buy now” or “order now” button. It is also important to have a strong headline at the top of the page which generates interest in the article making the readers want more information.
