21There was a time when we had to spend or waste a lot of time in finding the product of our choice. It often involved a routine of visiting shop after shop, browsing through the available stock there and then, making the purchase. All this needed a great amount of patience as shop hopping was a key ingredient of this endeavour. The scenario changed a lot when online shopping became a reality as it spared buyers the inconvenience of visiting brick-and-mortar shops to find the product of their own choice. The internet brought a shopping revolution and buyers were made the ultimate winner.

In a way, online shopping was a big breakthrough and it proved extremely helpful to those all who lacked time and hated the idea of visiting a crowded market. With the internet, shopping turned a breeze and buyers saved a lot of time and relished a variety of other benefits. Given the range of advantages available with online shopping, it was felt that buyers would not need anything else as they already had all what they wanted. This turned out to

20It's true that every business wants to achieve success and realize its objective in a desired manner. It's however also true that not all succeed as the level of competition is hard. The same rule applies to all those businesses that have gone online in the hope of benefiting from an ever-expanding market to meet all the goals in a timely manner. But sadly speaking, only a fraction of those business entities reach to any kind of success on the internet and the rest have to content with a virtual anonymity. In a way, it's quite tough to achieve success on the internet, really tough.

In a way, not all businesses can achieve success on the internet as not all possess the competence to do the same. On the other hand, those who possess competence in any area including monetary, manpower or marketing, find it easy to make it big on the internet. Small businesses may not compete against big players of the domain in terms of either money or manpower but they will find on the internet a level-playing field in terms of

18Websites are now the main shopping front for most businesses and they are now vying to get the attention of the mass public which is why less is more when it comes to website content.

Attention span

The information highway is swamped with so much information but sometimes attention spans can be very short. Someone is looking for a service, they need to find it fast but want the best deal.

A website has been found, but the website content is way too wordy, the sentences are too long. All the reader can see is a web page full of text that they have to read.

The reader switches off in horror. "I don't want to read all that! I just want to find the right service".

Too much information

Some business owners are very passionate about their business and sometimes this can come across in the website content, unaware that potential clients just have two question: Can you do the job and how much?

You've to communicate your experience, skills and credentials, without making it dry and boring like a crusty ol' resume (reminder: boring doesn't sell.)

You've to tell your story, without navel-gazing.

You've to share your success and achievement - written in first person - without overtly tooting your own horn.

Here's the hardest part:

Your About Page is about YOU.

You've to be brutally honest and vulnerable.

It's a distillation of the sum total of you - your vision, values, convictions, personality, skills, experiences, superpowers... woven into an intriguing story, fit into a page short enough that your readers don't fall asleep.

There's no products, services or programs to hide behind. You're presenting YOU.

You're putting yourself out there, making the personal and emotional connection necessary for clients to

Obviously, an attractive site is necessary as it is almost always the first thing prospective clients will notice. But it's what's behind that pretty face that makes a real difference.

While you're deciding on your colors and fonts, be sure you to put how you plan to use your website in your marketing strategy at the top of the list too. You want to be sure to build your site around SEO and SEM strategy, not in vice versa. You can build your site in reverse and make the marketing end secondary, but my experience this makes optimization much more time consuming.

When in the planning stages, be sure that either you or the professional you hired does keyword research and there is a plan in place on how to utilize these keywords effectively. Google and the other search engines don't care what your
