You may think an ugly theme is one of the standards I use to spot someone new to site ownership. It’s actually not even on my criteria list. But 15 other things are. Me and my clients can spot a newbie in seconds. It takes a trained eye to see all of the money a new site owner is leaving on the table. Take a quick scan of this list and then go review your site and see if you look like an amateur or a pro to your clients. I pull no punches here. This is a reality check about online success. So, if you’re easily offended about your online baby, maybe you should come back to this post when you’re ready to be rich.
