How to lose credibility and annoy your first time users in less than 10 seconds

Hook them with a title on steroids

  • Ask your subject as a question
  • Promise a magical answer
  • Build credibility with science and buzz words

Show them less value, more intention

Drown them into your generosity

  • Are you doing SEO wrong? Sure you do, let us help you!
  • Free course! Everything is free, just for you my friend!
  • Double your traffic! Make more money! Whoop whoop!

Hijack their scroll for FREE offers

Manipulate their clicks

  • Offer big, great, huge, ‘monster’ products
  • Use gigantic buttons with big ‘yes’ and ‘no’ labels
  • Use bright colors for positive and shades of gray for negative clicks

Make them feel very uncomfortable saying “no”
