Nick Pfennigwerth took his old site:
and applied some of the principles in my book Neuro Web Design: What makes them click? Here is what Nick wrote to me:
"What I found most interesting and what I applied the most was activating the old brain. If you go to, www.creative-wealthbuilding.com/what-are-smart-goals.html , I used your methods for activating the old brain by telling a dangerous story with a picture of danger in the first couple of paragraphs. Then, I used other photos such as the beautiful woman holding money and the creative art of the human mind.
I also tried to activate the mid brain and new brain by making time sensitive offers and "limited time only". Under the picture of the man mountain climbing, you can see a yellow box with a "jump link" to the bottom of my page. My most wanted response for that page is for my reader to sign-up for my wealth builders club. So, I used your techniques of limited offers, exclusive, and instant."
The major changes I made:
New color format. I decided to use a blue format to create more of a trusting look and feel
Pictures. I use pictures that have some sex appeal, food, and danger.
I tell more stories. I use story-telling to create images and get people engaged.
I use limited time, exclusive, and time sensitive appeal.
I create solid and practical value.
After reading your book and implemented your ideas, I've received extremely positive reviews that I've helped others increase their lives and that my website is fun."

Thanks Nick for sending me your case study!
If you have read the book and applied some of the principles, send me your case study with before and after pages links or screenshots and a list of the changes you made.
