in this post I want to give you a proven system for getting started online fast
There are a million ways to make money online but the only
proven system that continues to work over and over again in my opinion is
list building and selling information products.
So how do you get started with it? Here's my system..
I'm not claiming that's the only system
or the best system
That's just my system! With that said let's start with..
Step 1: Choosing your niche
The most profitable niches are no secret, these also the most competitive ones like:
internet marketing, weight loss, dating, muscle building (notice the trend, anything related to the big
3 areas of life: health, wealth and relationships is an evergreen niche)
People will always want to improve in these areas.
When choosing a niche you should keep in mind this:
You will need QUALITY CONTENT for your niche...
And LOTS of it. So if you know nothing about your niche
and have no interest in learning and becoming an expert
you will struggle, unless you can come up with a way to create content
that people love. For example by interviewing experts or just by outsourcing it
My advice is go with your strengths. If you don't feel you have any yet,
then choose the niche you're most passionate about and start developing your expertise
Ok, you have your niche, now we go to:
Step 2: Finding a product to sell
This is easy really..
You can just go to clickbank.com and find the top products for your niche.
You can promote some of them until you create your OWN product
because when you're just getting started these products will likely
convert much better than yours because they've been tested a lot..
You need something that can make you money right from the start.
Why wait until you create your own product?
Isn't it much better to have a list already when you launch your first product?
So now that you have your product you need to go to:
Step 3: Creating your funnel
You need 3 things for your funnel.
2. "Free Bribe"
3. Squeeze page
First you need a website, right?
So what you need to do is:
1. Register a domain
2. get hosting
3. attach domain to hosting
4. Install wordpress blog
You have a website now
Next, you need some kind of a "free bribe" to get people to join your list.
Easiest thing to do is to write a short PDF report.
It's important that you give some very powerful tips that people can implement
and get results right away. Give them the first step of the puzzle.
Make the report complimentary to the product that you sell (or plan to sell).
What I mean is:
don't write a report on "forex trading" and then sell a product on "real estate"
You have to lead your visitor in a natural progression to becoming a buyer.
Once you have your report you need a high converting squeeze page for it.
Your headline should contain the biggest benefit of your free "thing"
and you also want to invoke curiosity by not telling people exactly what they're getting
For example you cay something like:
Free Report Reveals...
The #1 Secret For *blank*
People will want to know what the secret is.
If you reveal what the method is in the headline you're not using curiosity..
which is what gets people interested in opting in.
Once you have a squeeze page.
You'll also want to put an opt-in form on your blog so that you build your list.
(which should be your main focus) You've heard the money is in the list, right?
To build your list you'll also need an email management system/ (an autoresponder)
I use aweber.com and I highly recommend it. Especially for beginners it's great..
It's super easy to create opt-in forms and has many other benefits too..
If you're getting started just go with aweber..
Ok, you have your blog, your free offer, your squeeze page
now it's time to drive some traffic!
Step 4: Driving Traffic
Now there are many ways to drive traffic but when you're getting started you'll probably want to
focus on FREE methods.
The most powerful free traffic method that I know is: CONTENT DISTRIBUTION
That's distributing valuable content all over the internet.
Let's say you have 1 high quality article for your niche.
You can leverage that article by submitting it
to many different places online.
What most people do is just submit it to top article directories like: Ezinearticles.com
That's good but there are many other places you can submit your article to get more exposure.
Here's a list of traffic sources:
- ebook sharing sites
- document sharing sites
- presentation sharing sites
- tutorial sites
- podcast directories
- video sites
- article directories
So if you use all of the above you WILL get traffic to your site.
Then it's a question of analyzing your results, tweaking your sales funnel,
applying more traffic strategies, creating more content and more products.
That's my system for getting started.
I hope you enjoyed it and got some value out of it.
looking forward to your success!
