Want to see something cool?
and watch the guy who looks like he's underwater.
Go on, I'll wait...
What did you notice?
I noticed that having that little intro video there, first over
the top of the sales letter, and then off to the left, made the
site seem a whole lot more inviting, friendlier, and someplace I
wanted to be.
Let's face it, most "mini-sites," (that is, sites that are really

you causes them to be MORE likely to opt in to your email list or
buy your product!
Bottom line, adding pop-in video increases your conversion rate,
often times DRAMATICALLY.

They crave human contact.
They want to know that you are a real person they can relate to
and trust, somebody who actually gives a darn about them.
Make your visitors feel like they're included, rather than
