Search Engine Optimization helps your website get noticed, but search engines don’t make purchase decisions; humans do. By understanding how to appeal to the eye, the mind and the heart, we can use what we know about our audience to draw them in, make a solid connection, and overcome resistance. And with plenty of website-makeover examples, we’ll learn how to tap into both the logical and emotional aspects of purchase behavior. By taking off our “seller’s hat” and putting on our “buyer’s hat,” anyone involved with company websites will discover what really works for online visitors. You’ll walk out with ideas that you can put to work right away.
