5.0 out of 5 stars I need to learn more. September 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If your passion is writing, or you own a blog or a website, sell a product, offer a service then you have to know if you are converting or NOT. If you are using your website to create a sustainable online business or just using it for fun and expecting a little monetary return, conversion is really essential to know the height of your internet presence. I learned a lot from this book. Knowing this 25 reasons of an unsuccessful website, for me, it inspired me to do more and better, and take actionable steps that will enhance/increase my conversion. Each chapter offers helpful, wise, and applicable tips. I started blogging a few years back, I was getting traffic, my content are all 100% original and fresh and yet... little or no sales in a day. The author in the book gave a helpful resources as well. This book helped me assess my website and follow the suggestions offered by the author.

This is by far the best book I've read on conversion rate optimization. I appreciated how the author doesn't waste a lot of time on opinion and fluff. If you don't have a lot of time to wade through that type of stuff, this book will give you everything you need in order to start thinking about HOW to optimize. There were TONS of examples that he explains with words and images. Excellent Excellent read!

5.0 out of 5 stars √ What Benefit does your Website Provide? September 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
√ This book is a well-written, and well-edited discussion of common goof-ups on websites. Some are common sense, but others are more subtle. 25 TERRIFYING REASONS is part of the "Lifestyle Design" series, which shows people how to earn income independently of a corporate job. "The point of the entire series is to teach concepts of independent income and picking where, and how, you want to live--on your own terms. This book is specifically designed to improve:

√ Pay per click performance
√ Traffic to your blog
√ Appeal of your products
√ Mailing opt-in rates

I found this to be a fun, easy read. It seems easiest to just pick and choose from chapters that are interesting, or fit your own particular business. Each chapter concludes with a funny pictorial, and "Don't forget this!" This is usually a final, meaty tidbit that you can use.

Here are some of the ideas that I found excellent:

♦ Your sales page is missing testimonials.
♦ Your ads are actually reducing your performance. Consider turning OFF Adsense.
♦ Make sure you offer excellent value in your product--and also to the website itself. Pretend you are an outsider. "They want something... Can you provide it, and do so consistently enough to keep people coming back for more?"
♦ Watch for big run-on paragraphs. In reviewing books, this is one of the most common criticisms I mention. People want to get to the bottom line fast; don't waste their time with too much prose. It's encouraging to see Cyrus also mention that.
♦ I appreciate the fact that the links in the Table of Contents work properly.

After the main body of the book, the author provides some links to other books in the Lifestyle Design series.

After reading this book, I realized I was doing quite a few things wrong on my blog and websites. I implemented some changes, and I can already see an increase in traffic in a short time. I can tell this book is written by a professional. I recommend it to anyone looking to improve their online presence and traffic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and insightful September 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
a good primer for commercial websites. Cyrus provides action points, warnings, and tips in an easy to understand and intelligent manner. I took off a star due to an overabundance of links and product tie ins that often launched the web browser when I was simply trying to turn the page. Nevertheless it's a recommended read.
