You have to verbalize all this in a concise and persuasive way on the 'sales page'.

You need to prove that your tools are the better option over word press and the likes and highlight these differences.

You need to appear professional and trustworthy so people will follow through with a transaction.

You have to justify the higher price.

at the moment, your website does not and that is why people like me and B25 were lost when we landed on the page, and many others will get lost too.

The sell is just not there.

You gotta realize that there’s no need for me to explain such things to professional and amateur web developers (my target market) any more than the DIY car kit manufacturer has to explain to pro car mechanics why they may opt to buy from him instead of going to Toyota... some things are obvious.

There’s a market for both of these products but they’re different markets that have to be tackled and tapped into differently.

In my case, the moment programmers see the “CSS-3 Generators” I’m sure they’ll know exactly what the product is all about without reading any further even and I'm sure they'll want to download and check it out.

Now as for squeezing everything my program does in 5-10 lines on the website… well I must admit I find that challenging and sales was never my strong point! :)

There's no reason to explain !

Lets take the kit car for example. I know what a kit car is but for me to consider buying the kit car over the already manufactured Toyota, I need to know these things before I make my decision;

That it will look better.
That it will perform better.
That it is cheaper to build it myself or be more economical to run or this is the most feasible option.
That the support is there in case I get lost or stuck.
That the time I spend building it is worth my while.
That it will last and that the components are not cheap bits that will break easily.
That it is safe to drive.
That I can trust myself to build it and trust doing business with you instead of trusting and doing business with an expert manufacturer, like Toyota.

If you’re really familiar with Wordpress and it’s as easy as you say, why don’t you do me a website and throw all that the sales pitch in it? :wink:

I’ll learn by example! :lol:

Like I said, sales isn't my forte...

If its good I'll buy it. In fact I offered the job to Sotos but he declined because he was busy with other things. Ask him!

Well, maybe I should hire a youngster who has more modern ideas and flair to do it or something… while I stick to the number crunching! :lol:

check out some of the freelancing websites and outsource it to someone that's competent.

They will expect you to provide the content otherwise the price skyrockets.

Mind you, if they come up with something that’s pretty but takes 20 seconds to load I’m gonna whack the keyboard on their heads!

WYSIWYG editors used to be popular 15 years ago but they are not anymore. Pros write code directly using editors and IDEs, utilizing libraries and frameworks and things like pre-processors. Amateurs that just want to have a website can do it with things like Wordpress, SquareSpace etc... and today most such people settle for just a facebook page anyways. Take yourself as an example... you are not a web developer but you tried to make a website and the result is really not that great... your tool didn't help you make a better website so how would it help anybody else? ;) You would be better off customizing a free wordpress theme... it would take about the same time, it would cost nothing and the result would be far better. I am not saying that a tool like that could not be useful at all... it could be in certain occasions... but you have to make it better and offer it for free as an online service. Examples: http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/ or http://css3buttongenerator.com/ Then if it gets some popularity you could make some money using ads.
