If your website is not making you money, you obviously designed it wrong. 3 easy steps to redesign your site for success
3 easy steps to redesign your website to make you money.
The truth about designing websites. Most people do not have a clue how to design a successful website! This hub will change all that.
If you are like me and have had a website for your business for several years now, you should be making money right now with your website. If you are not, you probably designed it wrong or have hired a web design firm who does not know how to design (even though they think they do).
Let's face it, anyone can design a website. It is not hard. If you don't know HTML coding (and don't care to learn) you can design it for free over the internet or use a program like Dreamweaver. OR you can hire someone overseas from the USA.
Is your website making you money? If not, read my tips below because I redesign websites for a living and know what works and what does NOT work. My websites are all making me money and most of them do not have that much traffic.
Just for the record, this is not about search engine optmization(there are plenty of good hubs on that topic). This hub is about designing your website to make the your visitors take action.
First of all, you need to design the goal of success for your website. If you do not have a goal for your website, it won't bring you any success at all.
Step 1: You MUST Define your website's goal.
What is your goal? To make money? To get phone calls so you can sell your services over the phone? To sell a product online? Define that goal. It can be broad, but you still need one.
Step 2: Turn your website goal into a call-to-action that your website visitors will follow.
Now, whatever your goal is, you have to translate than into a call to action. Your call to action is simply that. You are telling your website visitors to take action. If they don't take action, they leave your website and you waste a chance trying to convert that customer into a sale.
Examples of Calls To Action are:
- Click here to buy this product.
- Call us at (888) 555-1234 to talk to us about our services
- Donate to us for providing this free service.

What I am doing here it turning my website's goal into an action that my website visitors will take. I hope this makes sense.
And if you remember from grammar school, a verb is an action. Your call to actions should always start with a verb. Make your website visitors perform an action that will turn them into customers. That action is a verb...See my examples above: Click here, Call us, Donate, Fill out.
Step 3: Place the call-to-action in a place where people will see it right away.
Now, once you have that call to action, you must put that call-to-action in a place where people will see it. In the United States and other English speaking countries, your call to action MUST be put in the upper left hand corner of each and every web page so no matter where people go (whether they visit your website purposely or click on a Google link), their eyes will go right to that call-to-action.
This works, folks! My websites are proof of that. I AM making money on my 3 websites just following these steps.
