Discription of a Product Funnel, Please Advise

by 4 comments
Been reading through the forum and this is what a product funnel seems to be as far as I understand, please elaborate if this is inaccurate,

In order of revenue generated:

Stage One: Offer free resources and info reaching the maximum audience possible.

Stage Two: Offer more detailed information and tips to those willing to opt-in to your list.

Stage Three: To those on the list offer a premium ebook or mp3's and video's.

Stage Four: To those buyers offer a more in-depth Audio, DVD, or Hard Copy course.

Stage Five: Offer exclusive membership, resource site, website, software, etc.

Stage Six: Personal one on one coaching.

Would that be a good broad outline of the concept?

I'm sure affiliate recruitment fits somewhere in the middle.

Thanks for your help!

    You have it right on... You don't have to use a funnel system to sell info products and coaching. Here is how it works with recruiting other like minded "affiliates" or biz partners.

    Promote your capture page (opportunities are endless)

    What are most affiliates and networkers interested in??? They know that others are making money and they want to know HOW to scientifically approach marketing... so what do you provide. Knowlede of HOW to market. provide value and attract like minded people....

    the people that like you and your page, opt in. They are immediately redirected to a thank you page which provides more information and if you provide them with a ton of information on HOW to market on your autoresponders... they will CALL YOU. (this is when it gets fun)
    Instead of calling leads and harrassing your friends and fam, you have people calling YOU...
    But YES this is absolutely essential to your success in affiliate marketing or networking. If you are not doing this you are NOT in business.

    Hopefully I understood your question correctly!

    To your success my friend...

    Also look at it as short term versus long term value. If you do this right you can actually "lose" money to acquire a subscriber as you know you will make it up in the longer term.

    Another way to look at your products is a pyramid, you start broad both in detail and appeal, then steadily get deeper into more focused areas, more advanced, more intensive. Early products take little of your time, as your time commitment increases so should the price in most cases.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on Freelancer.com over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
