Am I doing this right?

by Little Affiliate 28 replies
Hello Warriors,

I'm trying to wrap my brain around the steps...

If there is a particular roadmap for this sort of business, I just don't see it...

So far from what I understand is this, and please correct me if I'm wrong...

the process of a funnel is:

1. Squeeze page - getting the customers email before giving them anything so I can grow my list faster.

2. Bridge page *optional -aka the thank you page, where you tell them about the email and thus linking to the sales page.

3. Sales page - where you have your long form sales copy plus a vsl at the top of the page (video sales letter) and an oto (one time offer) or ds (down sell) on other pages or pop ups.

4. order form - where your credit card details go in.

5. order conformation - where you confirm card and purchase info.

6. get money

So.. yeaaa, The thing is if I have this right, how do I get people to buy my offer?

Is there a time limit I should have my offer up for?

any advice would be very helpful,

and thank you for taking the time to read my post

    Usually in exchange for the email you want to give something smaller away for free, that will let them get to know you so you're able to sell to them easier.

      Yes and No

      To give something away for free to build your list and then in the follow-up email try to sale them something after

      A sale funnel, you sale them on something
      after the first sale, you upsell one , two, three time to get more money out from the prospect

      so one sale become 2 , 3 or 4 more transaction

      make sure the you also have a downsale on every up-sale

    Are you selling your own product or promoting others?

    • Yeah, I'm going after promotions first so I get the hang of the controls.

    You have described everything you need to have in place to sell a product with a funnel, but there is something missing wich is the blood of online money making, that is TRAFFIC. You Need to put your offer in front of the right people, so it is not only traffic but quality targeted traffic. You can achieve that with paid traffic. there are many products and software around explaining how to get cheap clicks in Facebook, Youtube, and other paid traffic sources

      Ok so I am learning about paid traffic now...
      every little detail, but I can't seem to get a hold on how long I should run the ads for...

      I mean how soon do you see results with paid ads I mean...

      a day... a week... 14 days...

    Right.

    2. Bridge page *optional -aka the thank you page, where you tell them about the email and thus linking to the sales page.
    This is a little unclear.

    3. Sales page - where you have your long form sales copy plus a vsl at the top of the page (video sales letter) and an oto (one time offer) or ds (down sell) on other pages or pop ups.
    This is several pages.

    4. order form - where your credit card details go in.

    5. order conformation - where you confirm card and purchase info.

    6. get money
    If you are using Paypal this is a PayPal button. They take care of the rest except delivery.

    Here's something to boggle your mind.

    That means they decline (politely refuse) the offer.

    Here's a quick and easy way to set it up.

    1. Purchase a PLR product, then do a bit of rewriting to make it unique. (Make sure to get the cover artwork redone to reflect the name of your new product. You can get a graphics artist to do it for five bucks at fiverr.com)

    2. Set up a squeeze page to give your product away.

    3. Set up an autoresponder (with at least 7 follow-up messages loaded into it). Make sure the autoresponder directs them to a paid offer immediately after they sign up. This will pay your traffic expenses. (affiliate offers are the easiest)

    4. Send traffic. Paid traffic is the fastest and you can find a TON of solo ad providers on Facebook. Make sure to read the reviews. Also, start out with a small order to see the quality of traffic. Use a link tracker to check conversions and only reorder if you break even or make a profit.

    5. Make more money on the back end by sending additional offers to your subscribers.

      what place would you recommend for PLR products?

      again do you have any recommendations for a solo ad provider?
