I am newbie in IM. However, I have been running internet business for 6 years now(not really knowing that IM exists!). I also have new store (6 months) and plan to open second store. I also wanted to try publishing my own ebooks and try affiliate business.
Could you help me by answering few questions? It's a bit long so thanks in advance for effort. I am sure it can help not only me but all folks that are newbies "waiting in line".
1. Where to buy domains cheap?
2. Where to host? I have Host9 account
3. Which service to use - ClicBank, paydotcom or other?
4. What is the average conversion rate for industry? What % of visiting my website/store/sales page should buy anything?
5. Which autoresponder for high volume lists?
6. Do you believe selling affiliate products can still bring money? For me it looks like this market is so "full" that one has to bring a lot of effort to earn a bit.($500 month)
7. This one is hard. I know that it depends on many factors...but what kind of monthly profit (average) newbie can expect, considering he has learned basics of IM(masscontrol and other programs) and can spend 3-4 hours daily?
8. Do you know people that earn 'serious' money on IM($5-$10K monthly)? I am not talking about people like Frank Kern etc but regular people.
9. Do you think there is still potential in this market to earn serious money? Sometimes I have a feeling that guys like Eban Pagan Frank Kern, Mike Filsaime jumped that wagon in right moment and now there is no more room for any new "millionares". What you think of that?
10. Sales page or squeezepage? I am lunching soon my ebook-which I consider to have great content(I know..for marketers only traffic counts but I am a bit old fashioned ). I am not sure if I should make sales page or only collect their emails and sell them ebook via email list. I have a very good experience with lists as I used it in my previous business-I like to build trust and make people feel like I am worth of trust.
Which technique you like the best? Or maybe we can combine them? Is it smart to make sales page and add there also option "put your email and download first chapter for free"? Will I not get rid off potential buyers this way?
again, thanks a lot for your time.
