Everyday questions are easy to answer:
- “Will I like those shoes?”
- “Will that be a good dinner?”
- “When should I start getting ready to go out?”
We have tons of experience that has informed our answers to questions like these. We get a feeling one way or another, immediately. Yes, I will like those new Nike basketball shoes, no I will not like liver and onions, and I should start getting ready about 20 minutes before we leave.
We rely so much on this feeling-intuition that we use it in business decisions. What should the new website look like? How many people can I hire this year? Should we have a face on our billboard? Easy questions to answer quickly, right? You probably have a feeling on which way you’d lean on each one.
Slideshow presentations have been around ever since the guy in front of the audience held up the audience response cards with the words “Clap, Laugh, or Boo” on them.

Conversion Tips to Grow Your Online Customer Base
A flashy design, lightening-speed page load time, and excellent usability are all great elements of a successful e-commerce site. But there’s something more basic that a website needs to have in order for you to get sales from your e-commerce store:
Trust (n.): Assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.
If your e-commerce site lacks trustworthiness, consumers aren’t even going to stick around long enough to appreciate the other great attributes your site has – they’re going to leave immediately.
