At first, it is not particularly easy to make money online! It is very possible, but so many internet marketers will tell you that making money online will be easy, if you only had the product or service they are trying to sell you! This is simply not true!
Making money online is a skill, and just like any other skill it can be learned; like cooking, construction, or like the job you have now! You had to learn how to cook, and you had to practice to get good at it! You had to learn how to do the job you have now, and you had to practice to get good at it! Same thing with making money online; you have to learn how to make money online, and you have to practice to get good at it!
The process of making money online:
Find a Niche > Keyword Research > Make a Website > Build a Mailing List > Promote Related Products to Your Mailing List
You only have to set this process up once! Once you have this process set up, your website and your auto responder will automatically take each visitor through this process! You can then spend most of your time and effort on generating targeted traffic, because you know that once someone gets to your website, they will automatically be taken through this process!
The most VALUABLE ASSET an internet marketer could have is a MAILING LIST! I make almost 100% of my online INCOME from my mailing list!
Protect your mailing list with your life! You will spend alot of time and effort getting people to sign up to your mailing list, so you might as well just take a few extra minutes, and make a little extra effort to keep the people on your mailing list happy!
Only send something to your mailing list if you truly believe it will help the people on your mailing list! If the people on your mailing list get the feeling that you are sending them something just to make a commission, you have just shot yourself in the foot!
If one person gets this feeling, chances are everyone will get the same feeling, because everyone on your mailing list is getting the same email, since your auto responder will take one email that you have written, and send it to everyone who signs up to your mailing list!
The main purpose of your website should be to build your most valuable asset; your mailing list!
To get people to sign up to your mailing list, offer your visitors a helpful, useful, valuable, FREE GIFT, in exchange for their NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS!
Then, continue to send the people on your mailing list helpful, useful, valuable, FREE INFORMATION that compliments the free gift you gave them!
Up to this point, the people on your mailing list have received a helpful, useful valuable, free gift, and free information that compliments the free gift, and all they have given you is their name and email address!
These people really like you at this point, and they can't wait to get another email from you, because everything you have sent them so far has done nothing but benefit them, and they have not paid you a dime so far!
So, since they really like you, and they can't wait to get another email from you, you might as well give them what they want! Only this time send them an email that contains a link to a PAID product or service! Again, just make sure that you truly believe that the paid product or service will benefit them!
The people on your mailing list will be much, much, much more likely to buy from you now than they were when they visited your website for the first time!
That means that your CONVERSION rate will be much, much, much higher than it would be if you tried to sell something directly from your website!
TRAFFIC + CONVERSION = INCOME
So, now that you have maximized your conversion rate, you can concentrate most of your time and effort on generating targeted TRAFFIC!
