“We need to talk.”

For a man, few words are as menacing as those four—especially when a woman is the one saying them and he’s on the receiving end. Those four words can mean only two things to men: either we did something wrong or, worse, you really literally just want to talk. Now, we understand that we’re not the essence of perfection and there are going to be times when you’re mad at us and need to let us know it; we get that, though we don’t necessarily want to have to concentrate on an hourlong angry lecture about how we screwed up. But even more? No man wants to sit around gabbing with you like we’re one of your girlfriends. Ever. It’s just not in our DNA to lounge around, sip coffee, and dab at our eyes with tissue as if we’re in an AA meeting or on some psychologist’s couch trying to get things off our chest. When men are talking, and especially when they’re listening, it’s with purpose. We don’t vent. We just want to fix whatever situation is upsetting the balance.


The above is an extract from “Act like a lady, think like a man” Steve Harvey… Which of course led me to thinking…. As we do our affiliate marketing, our intention is to get those people who come to our affiliate blogs to click on those links and head over to our programs and hopefully buy, so that we can fill our empty coffers. But, and herein is the big question, have we stopped to think about why this person came to our website? What brought him here? And how can we be helpful?

I certainly haven’t found the answer to the above question for I have been focused on talking about the products, trying to sell, sell. But maybe I should focus on something else, because, my profits haven’t been that great! I have succeeded in getting them through the door, now I just need to sell to them!

As usual, if you know more about this than we do, how to convert visitors into buyers, let us know and we will surely adopt your methods.
