I am not a designer. I don’t claim to be capable of creating good design and I wouldn’t even claim that I have particularly good taste in design. I am, however, a fan of good design and I get asked about the graphics I use for my blog posts and video presentations quite frequently. Hence this post.
Graphics and design are important to me for all of my websites. The visuals of any site are what form the “first impression” and are therefore relevant to conversions and profit. Just like you dress well when you want to make a good impression, even though you know that your clothes don’t convey your personality, you should make sure that your website is visually appealing, even though you know the content is more important.

In fact, online marketing is the perfect remedy against high-pressure selling, because it offers better alternatives.
A few months ago, I sent out surveys to several groups of online marketers.

Quite surprisingly, the results showed that the number one biggest problem for most online marketers had nothing to do with online marketing.
The IM Impact/SwissMadeMarketing affiliate program is now officially launched! Why SwissMadeMarketing? You’ll see in the video below. This is the affiliate program where you can promote all of my products and all joint products I have with business partners and earn tons of money for it. And I mean that.
