The first step is to picture your average visitor. Ask questions like…
Who are they? How old is the average searcher likely to be? How experienced is that audience with the internet? (this will affect the style of our site)
Why are they searching for the keyword? Usually they have a problem and they want to find a solution. You need to identify what that problem is and all the negatives surrounding that problem. Using weight loss as an example: The main
P a g e | 41

problem is that they?re overweight and the negatives that stem from that might be: Social humiliation, not having a lot of confidence, not attracting the opposite sex e.t.c.
And finally… Ignore this one at your peril…
What do they want? Is the visitor looking for a review? General information? A guide to solve their problem?
Ignore this last point and your visitors will hit the back button faster than you can say WAAIIT. Seriously, you can use all the sales tactics in the world but if you don?t give the searcher what they?re looking for then your conversion rates will be dismal. If when looking at your visitor statistics, 80% or more are leaving in the first 10 seconds then that?s your problem: They are looking for one thing and your website provides another. Internet users are impatient and if they don?t find what they?re looking for they will exit your site without hesitation.
Remember that you need to provide quality content (answer their query) AND presell them at the same time.
I recommend that you find a piece of paper and quickly jot down answers to all of the questions above. It will help you to understand your visitors better and therefore increase your conversions.
All of these points are summed up in what is one of my favourite internet marketing phrases: “You need to enter the conversation that the searcher is having in his/her head”. You need to enter the searchers mind, give them what they want, confirm their fears and present it all in a way they?re familiar with (and not sceptical of).
So, as promised, here?s a practical example to back all of this theory up:
The user types in to Google “XYZweightlossproduct Review”.
What?s going on in their mind? They?re very interested in the product but they want to find a high quality review before they purchase. Notice that I said HIGH QUALITY because give them the same crappy, biased review they?ve probably already read and they won?t buy. They?ll look somewhere else until they find a real review and end up clicking their affiliate link in the process.
Also note that this user doesn?t want a long story telling them about how you overcame your weight loss problem because they already want the product.
Finally, they are probably a woman, over 30 and probably not THAT internet savvy so an unprofessional looking website will get a better response. Since they will be sceptical of a graphical, marketing type website and associate it with the BS infomercials on TV.
So, here?s what I?d give that searcher:
P a g e | 42
©2011 Google Sniper 2.0
A simple, OK looking blog, nothing too flashy and certainly not a professional website. I?d position myself as an expert E-course reviewer… Someone who buys Clickbank products in lots of different niches and reviews them, which when you have multiple sites is what you are anyway.
Then, I would immediately present them with an „in depth? and seemingly unbiased review of the best quality product you found on the market. (I recommend attaining review copy?s from the creators, more on this in the video) In the review I?d get down to the „brass tacks? of how many pounds other successful students actually lost (look for testimonials on the sales page of the product). I?d give some negative comments and finish by saying how it?s basically the best product I saw and that I saw A LOT.
Those are the basics of our website. Now let?s look at it in more detail.
Deciding on your angle of attack
Angle of attack? Yeah, I know… what was I thinking when I came up with the names for these sub chapters? It?s a flying term anyway, and I figured it described this section well enough while raising your curiosity about it at the same time.
In this section we?re going to consider „what does the user want? and therefore what the best „angle of attack? is to take if we want to successfully capture that visitors attention and presell them on the product. So, in the weight loss product review example the best approach was to write a quality review because it?s what the searcher wanted.
