    Hey Hubbers,

    I need more critiquing, if you don't mind.

    I've changed the format/layout and want opinions. … ssa-Milano

    Thank you in advanced.

      Less pictures, more Amazon.

      Amazon capsules include little thumbnail photos of the product.  Direct people to the capsules for pictures.  If they want to see the item larger then they have to click through using your link - making the conversion into a sale that much easier.

        Thank you very much. However, I have put into practice some critiqued advice from the other thread. And this layout is what I chose to go with.

        I do appreciate your advice, but the main reason was that for this form of layout. Please check out the other thread....

        The thread below is about my first sales hub. And, you are welcome to read the replies I received. Hence, you'll understand why I changed the format from and to?

    Triple ditto what Garfield said. Outside of a few punctuation thingees, I can definitely say that you're really getting the hang of this. smile

      Hey Irohner, I am trying different things. Getting the hang of it? I'm not sure about that....this hub took me about 4-5 hours to create. lol

      But, also read my previous post.

    You see, the problem is that the person that gave you that advice (although a GREAT hubber) has no practical experience in what works and what doesn't work in sales hubs--unless she has a second account that I'm not aware of.

    But I can definitively tell you from experience that not having large photos does not stop someone from buying. As a matter of fact, because I've given my readers less information, they must click on the ad to find out more. And then I've got them in my little Amazon clutches for the next 24 hours. Mwah ha ha ha ha!

    That said, you're testing different strategies and that's always a good thing in marketing and sales. smile

    I normally just worry about conversion rates, but in this case, you might want to monitor CTRs as best you can as well.

      I have to admit, I actually had a little help, other than the other thread, with this hub.

      I used my mother, who lives with me, as a guest visitor to the hub and get her take on the hub format, as I was creating it. She found it pleasant to the eyes, because she could see the apparel up close versus being forced to go to Amazon, to get a larger picture.

      So, you can see my dilemma? And, I'm not aware of whether or not, the other hubber(s) have other accounts that are producing either. I know of one that doesn't, but the other, as you said might, but is unknown. I was only going by her perspective as a shopper online.

      Hence, the reasons for this format. So, I'll monitor it. Thank you so much. smile
