I have to say that in all my years doing this crazy IM stuff, and after many failures I realised that there were 9 things that I tested that really were responsible for coming out the other end ok.
Some people are battered and bruised right now, and it feels like you have gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson, and both your ears are missing (lol)
But here are some great ways to bite back, and increase your online profits fast.
1) Build a bigger following.
Yes ok, we hear this time and time again, but just get more optins and take more action to get more subscribers on your list. Then help them out, and see what happens. I dare ya!! someone dared me to do this several years ago and I ended up quitting my day job. So now I am daring you to do the same!!
2) Add and upsell page
Yes, You are leaving massive amounts of money on the table if you are not upselling people. They have already bought something from you, so they have money! Lets agree on this, but chances are if they are warmed up dont let em go! They are likely to buy some more stuff if their credit card is out and you have a good offer! Use a membership site or add big bonuses to earn more money.
3) Thank You Page profits
As soon as someone subscribes to your list, dont leave a lazy ass page saying thankyou go and check your email Go and find some nice affiliates offers you can put infront of them and start offering them stuff straight away.
You could offer your products, someone elses products or even a CPA product right then and there. You can make tons of money right from day one. It might only take 4-5 mins to set up, but lets just say 40 to 50% of people who optin decide to buy something. Its a better payday for you.
4) The Follow Up Be-Dazzler
If someone has bought your product put them automatically onto a list where they get a freebie the next day. And then the next day give them discounts to all your products.
People love bargains, and if they love your first product chances are the discount for the other products are going to be icing on the cake for them. And some will buy. Remember they will still be warmed up for them purchase even days later. So if your first product is good, chances are they will come back for more and buy...especially if you give them some nice discounts that are not offered to your other members.
5) Make Sure To Recycle Old Content
It is not doubt that the more products you create the more money you will make. SO it is very easy to make new money from different formats you create. So with an ebook you could create a video, or a DVD without needed to create more content.
Or once someone buys your digital videos, you can offer them as a physcial DVD so they have a copy to watch on their DVD player at home.
Or if you have free reports, you can use that same content on your blogs if you are stuck for ideas on what you should be posting from day to day. Dont let it go to waist.
6) Use Integration Marketing
All traffic is not the same. Lets say you have 500 visitors coming from your facebook page, and 500 people coming from you JV's list.
Its not the amount of traffic you get online these days, its all about quality and giving them the right offers. Its important to understand how important the white space in your thankyou pages are, and how precious this is in terms of virtual real estate.
But make other marketers realise this and try to see if you can put your offers and products on their whitespace and download pages also. This costs you nothing to do, and can bring 100's of subscribers and sales to your door each and every month.
Smart integration like this and giving other markets incentives to promote you can make you lots of money and cost you $0 maybe just a little of your time.
7) Use Your Blog And Be Different
I like jason moffatt and his blog. He is different and the rebellious crazy style marketer and he makes lots of sales and attracts lots of customers especially when his videos or silly antics go viral.
Its alway good to have fun with your marketing, be different, a colorful character, be charming or communicate with your readers and subscribers at their level. You dont have to come across as a guru. People hate guru's so just come across as a friend helping a friend!!! This is more powerful than alot of people realise.
8) Filter Your Lists
Probably one of my favourite tips to making lots of money fast. Marketing these days is about offering the right product to the right people. That is very powerful way of targeting and get your message across.
Most marketers use a scatter approach to their lists, and lose money from doing so.
Segment your lists, into buyers, and non buyers and note the behaviours of these. Try to get your freebie seekers over to your buyers list and segment them as much as you can. You can even segment your buyers list into different lists too. This can increase your profits with little work on your part.
9) Test and Measure Everything
If you are serious about marketing and do affiliate marketing or niche marketing, have your own product or service, you should be testing everything.
You are waisting your time if you are not testing and measuring everything. Be in constant competition to yourself. When you have a winner, try to out do yourself again for better results, and then more and so on and so on.
Then when you can not beat yourself, upscale and outsource and watch the profits roll in BIG TIME! When something works, write it down and study why and how it worked so well, and keep doing more of the stuff that works and less of what doesnt work for you. That is how you win at this game.
Now go out there and get em' Tigers!
