Increase Traffic & Sales by Redecorating Your Web Site.

The use of the right colors on your web site can actually increase your sales.
When people see certain colors they can
change their emotions or they can symbolize things related
to the colors. Here are a list of colors with some emotions
and symbolizations they can cause:

Red – love, excitement, warmth

Pink – romantic, affection, sensuality

White – purity, peace, perfection

Blue – sky, water, travel, freedom, truth

Purple – royalty, dignity

Black – space, night, authority

Green – money, calm, envy, greed

Silver/Grey symbolizes security, reliability, intelligence, staid, modesty

Yellow – light, purity, understanding

Orange – autumn, youthfulness, fire

Brown – wood, comfort, strength

Its very important to know which emotions or symbolizations
will trigger your target audience to buy your product or
service. The colour used on your website could determine people’s first opinion of it. People see certain websites and say it looks really cool, that is because of the appeal which it projects to the reader or viewer.
If your selling a money-making product you should
use green colors to represent money or bring out the emotion
of greed. People also associate comfort and travel with
money so you maybe want ad in some brown and blue
colors on your web site.

Do not however take this information to mean that
the color(s) of your website is an end in itself, No, it is only a means to an end. There are so many other things that determine whether your site looks presentable, professional or not for instance some website designers struggle with how to organize images, links and content in general.
Websites that are viewed as clustered or rough usually put off your visitors.

The same principle can be applied to graphics or pictures
of your product on your web site. Package your products
with colors that will trigger your audience to If your
selling a book about how to be more romantic, use red
and pink colors on the cover. I hope these simple web
site color techniques will increase your business’s sales.

How to Profit From Parked Domain Names?

The best way to monetize a domain name is to develop an authority website on it. Obviously this takes a lot of time and hard work, but it doesn’t need to be your time or work. In other words, if you have a big budget and believe that the domains have potential, you could hire a web designer, a tech guy, and a team of content producers and marketers to develop a website on each of the domains.

This is the strategy used by many online networks and web publishing companies, and it can be profitable if done correctly.

If you are a one man show and don’t want to hire people, you will need to develop simpler websites on each of the domains, one at a time. You could create mini websites, for example. These are websites with 10 to 20 pages of unique content that target a very narrow niche. One example would be a website about “how to clean mold.” It would be good to have keyword rich domains for this strategy though, and I am not sure if that is the case with your domains.

If you don’t have time even to create mini websites on the domains, well, then they will hardly be profitable. You could add a page of unique content to each of them and put some AdSense units or affiliate links there, but you will probably earn just enough to cover their annual cost (i.e. $10).

There is one more strategy that you could try, but this will only work if your domains are really good. If they are, you could lease them. So basically you would let a company use your domains for a fixed number of years, usually ranging from 3 to 10, and in exchange for that they would pay you a monthly or annual fee. If you have the domain, for example, you could approach monitor manufacturers to see if they are interested in leasing it.
