Making a video and adding it to your sales letter is hard. Split testing takes awhile but one very simple improvement you can make to your webpage is adding an audio button. It takes you a few minutes. It makes you look more professional and it keeps people staying on your webpage for those first few seconds.
Adding an audio button is easy. We’re going to use the WP audio player script to add to our webpage. We’re going to use the Logitech USB Clear Chat Headset to record it and Gold Wave to save the file. And you’re going to be reading what you see on the webpage.
The WP audio player script is a file you upload and a piece of code you put on your webpage that says, “Find this audio file, this MP3” and play it directly in their browser. All you have to do is download the stand alone version if you have a HG mail sales letter or install the plugin if you have a WordPress sales letter, and now it is ready to play your MP3 file. But we have to record that MP3 file first. For that we will get the $35 dollar Logitech USB Clear Chat which you can buy on Amazon, and it will record anything you say in fairly good quality.
Then you can get the shareware program Gold Wave, hit the record button, speak then save as an MP3 file. Now that you know how to record an audio file, upload it and play it on this webpage player. What do we say, Very simple! Open up your webpage, read the headline, read the first few paragraphs introducing yourself and then find a place where there’s a cliffhanger and transition into telling people to continue reading the webpage.
That way you’ll have your shocking statement, you’ll begin telling the story but they have to keep reading the webpage to get that story. We want to limit our audio button to about one minute in length to avoid being too long and we want to read the exact text we see on the webpage because the whole point is to get them to start reading. It wouldn’t make sense to show one thing in text and read something else in audio. Read what you see.
And that’s how to add an audio button to your sales letter. Use WP audio player as your player. It’s free and even though it does work with WordPress, there’s also a stand alone edition for regular sales letters. Use the Logitech USB Clear Chat Headset to record your audio and the program Gold Wave to actually record it and save the audio file. Read the headline, read the first few paragraphs then tell people to continue reading the page to get more information.
