18 Remind people to come back and visit your site. They usually don't purchase the first time. The more times they visit, the greater the chance they'll buy. You could remind them with your e-zine, with a follow-up autoresponder course, an e-mail update reminder, etc.

27 Tell people to click on your banner ad. Newbies to the Internet may not even know they can click on banners. Just having the phrase "Click here" on your banner will increase your click-throughs.
