      Hi Sales Techniques,

      Thank you for your very kind comment. Looked at your sales page, looks like it needs a little bit more information. I like the fact that you kept it short, but I wasn’t clear on what you were exactly selling and/or price. Also you might check your load time, it was so slow it timed out.

      Keep focused and positive.

      Sharon
