When selling a product or service, here is the one question you must answer for your visitor every time. So? Leading to the comment “Ah, (I get it)”. A simple two letter word with huge implications. When you properly answer the question “So?” you will be appealing to your visitor's emotions, not their logic. You will be promoting your product or service's benefits, not the features, and that is what moves product in a big way.
