Okay, I want to start by saying and making one thing clear. There is NO magic button for online success.
Don't believe anyone that says they can make you rich over night. In fact run the other direction.
It doesn't matter what business model you use to make money online they all take work.
Now, I want to make one thing clear... there are many ways to make money online but I am going to briefly explain a way I use and it works for me.
Okay.... Here we go....
Have you heard the term, "Build Your List"
before? Well... if you haven't then please remember that.
A list is a collection of names and emails (or just emails) you have gathered.
Now.. you build your list by getting people to opt-in to what is called a squeeze page. They opt-in because you offer them something of value like a FREE gift(s).
So in exchange for the FREE Gift you are getting their name and email.
Why do we want their name and email??? Good question and I'll cover that in just a bit.
You are going to build what is called a 3 page website. It is a squeeze page, thank you page and a download page.
Once someone Opts-in to your squeeze page they will be automatically taken to a thank you page which tells them to check their email. Once they check their email and confirm it was them who signed up they will get instant access to the download page to claim their FREE gift(s). Now your FREE Gift(s) could be anything like a eReport, Video course, etc... just make sure it's something of value.
I like to use Wordpress with a theme called Optimize Press for my Squeeze Page.
Now... you need to get something called an autoresponder ( I like to use AWeber). An Autoresponder will manage your list. It will direct them to the thank you page once they Opt-in to the Squeeze Page and will send out the confirmation email to them which connects to the download page.
An autoresponder helps you easily maintain thousands of people on your list.
You can set it up to send follow up emails, broadcast messages, etc...
Once people sign up and are on your list it is always important to provide value. Send them helpful tips, material, free gifts, etc... You need to build a good rapport with them.
Now... Here is where you make your money...
When you have an excellent product that the people on your list can benefit from you can email it to all of them. So just imagine if you had a list of 1,200 people and 5% bought your product for $32. You just did $1,920 in sales from one email.
Now depending on if it's your product or your acting as an affiliate will determine what your take home pay is but hopefully you can get the point.
Just image if you had a list of 5,000 people and you did this once a month. Or what if it was a re-billing product?
Again, there so much more to all this but my main point was to give you an idea of how this business model can work.
Always remember to provide the best customer service possible, treat your list as real people and not ATM machines, provide value, and do what ever you can to help them.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, tips, etc...
Hope this helps,
