I read a few years back that people often visit a new site a few times before they eventually make a purchase. That is, they dont buy the very first time they visit. Soo... one way to improve sales is apparently to make the site "sticky", which supposedly means give people a reason to come back and visit (or not want to leave).
Product reviews, advice columns, handy hints and tips etc...
