Jared “JStayReady” Henderson is a celebrity hairstylist that specializes in protective hairstyling such as extensions and custom wig units.
After partnering with Alavon365 to launch his very first custom The act of trading products or services online. website, he was able to do 5-figures in sales for his initial launch and well over 6 figures in sales in his first year.
I asked him to share what he did to ensure that his website launch was successful.
He was kind enough to share 4 (and a half!) major keys to launching an The act of trading products or services online. website so you can get off to a good start.
1. Give yourself time to promote the hell out of the launch!
You want enough time to build anticipation and excitement, but keep it within a reasonable time frame so that people won’t forget. 1-3 weeks is good.
2. Add an incentive to drive traffic the first day
3. Triple check everything on the site an hour beforehand
Check for spelling and gramatical errors, make sure all of your terms and conditions are worded correctly and all policies are in place
4. Get a second or third opinion
If you have access, share it with a close friend or relative a day before the launch. Make sure they are people who are brutally honest. Let them navigate and test it out to see how everything flows.

Now enjoy not having to send out invoices anymore and let the cash flow in! 😀”

We set up an automated campaign that delivered a coupon to new sign up. We sent personal thank you videos that J provided for us, to each new sign up. This added touch gives a percentage of your visitors that added boost they need to pull out their credit card and make a purchase.
Credit card payments
Working with PayPal can be a pain. At some point everyone who uses them ends up with an issue with getting their money. J wanted to only accept credit card payments on his website and we knew that this would increase conversions.
This is because PayPal processing adds friction to the process by taking the customer away from your website at checkout.
A byproduct of this is that it required that he install a SSL certificate to his The ‘street address’ or location where a website or oth... More. This green padlock adds a subconscious level of trust between you and your visitors.
Using these best practices for launching your first The act of trading products or services online. website will get your business off on the right track.
