Long list
Nov 27, 2007 10:12PM PST

- site loads slow
- site looks very amature
- Changing of text color annoying and hard to read
- All the links/ads/images on the front page don't make me want to buy
- The links at teh top don't drive me into the site (why go to page 2? what the heck is on page 2?)

I could go further, but until those major items are addressed, there really isn't much of a point.

I only looked at the site quick and saw those glaring issues. If you were going to buy vitamins and nutritional supplemants would you shop at your site based on appearance or somewhere like these:

With a brick and mortar store I am going to shop at a store that looks nice and I feel comfortable with. I am not going to go down some dark ally and get my vitamins from a store with hand made signs that doesn't look like it has been cleaned in forever.

To draw the comparison, your site looks like someone who has a van in the parking lot of an abandoned gas station with a sign that says, "Vitamins Here". I don't know if what you are selling is safe or if you will even be there tomorow if I have a problem with the product.

Looked a little closer

I just looked a little closer at your site and noticed some of the banner ad junk you have on the bottom of your page deals with link exchange/click/surf traffic. This would be why you are getting hits with no sales too. These hits are from people that are just looking to drive traffic to their site. They aren't interested in your product, just interested in getting credit for clicking on your link.

having some kind of tracking like Google analytics will help you understand what your traffic is doing.

in a typical site, having 3% of your visitors place orders is good. only 1% of them will pay for the order.

so the more traffic the better.

i've suggested this site to others

this guy writes a lot of good stuff for online marketing.

hope it helps,

need more order

The site needs to be better organized. I'm not really sure what you're trying to sell. There are icons and links everywhere. You need to make sure that visitors direct their attention to what you want them to see. At this point, I have no idea what you want me to look at.
