Try to include social proof instead of praising your own business and clients. Nobody is interested in reading lengthy boring paragraphs, so it is advisable to add testimonials of your clients about your service to them. Such endorsement on your website would add trust among the visitors and they’ll think upon making a purchase from your website.

Go direct while writing a CTA for your visitors! Use ‘Buy Now’, ‘Add to Cart’ or ‘Click Here’ rather than allowing your audience to buy it later or bookmark it. The chances are that they go once and would never return again! People often forget what they have saved to buy later from a particular portal.

It is the most irritating thing when people are asked to insert the same info which they have already provided to you in the past. They obviously won’t like if you ask them again for the same. Pre-filling forms for the customers would reduce their efforts. Use smart defaults for inserting details for them and you can always ask them whether they want to change it.
