The Most Important Part Of Your Affiliate Marketing Business Is Your Marketing Funnel And It Needs To Be Done Properly To Achieve Your Goal!

Affiliate MarketingWhat is a marketing funnel ?

A marketing funnel is a series of technologies involved into a sales funnel taking a prospect from entering the door to making them a valued customer.

A marketing funnel has a few components that should be done in a certain order so it will work properly and testing is essential before you launch your marketing funnel.

Now I am going to cover different ways to build marketing funnel:

First way to build a marketing funnel is without a website you will need a lead capture page system that hosts your lead capture page. This way you will not host your own website and will strictly be using it at a sales funnel to sell your affiliate products. This system could be one like LeadPages.net or Elite Marketing Pro as an example of two I’ve personally used.

I prefer the Elite Marketing Pro platform because it shows you how to market your business and/or website and what is working now by real entrepreneurs who are in the trenches too. Not someone just talking but real people with real results.

What these systems do is allow you to build lead capture pages to process your opt-in for that free report or gift your giving out to get your prospects email information. Once they have opted in to your list then you should have your email autoreponder email sequence kick in automatically with other messages you want to share with your lists and product they are looking for and should be related to the report or gift you gave them when they opt-in.

Here below is a screenshot of my personal account and some of the lead capture pages I’ve designed here inside Elite Marketing Pro. EMP is a complete system with everything you need to launch a marketing campaign fast and painlessly. The beauty of it is that you can create as many as you want and it doesn’t matter what niche or market  your in.

Here is one of my marketing funnels and lead capture page and how it looks like with a lead capture system.

Now lets take a look at one of my marketing funnels using my own personal websites below. Obviously this one of my sites where it has many other pages, products and blog all in one. Typically you would just create a one page website hosting your lead capture page or you could use a great WordPress Plugin called FunnelKit ( They are currently developing a mobile ready version which will be awesome.

Of course if you know what tools to use you can design and make your website look as good as a lead capture page system but frankly I think you’ll prefer the lead capture system since it is already set up and ready for you to launch your campaigns. You just have to fill in some areas required for you to have everything up an running.

What are the components of what makes a marketing funnel work so well and profitable ? Here are some things you must have in place:

  1. You need a website like WordPress that has thousands of options to make your website or blog like a million dollar site…Awesome platform and highly recommended. If you need help connect with me and I’ll guide you through.
  2. A Domain Name – Godaddy.com, Namecheap.com are great registrars to use.
  3. You need an Email Autoresponder like Aweber to create your Opt-In forms
  4. You need an affiliate product. Amazon, Clickbank, JVZoo, CommissionJunction.com ( cj.com ), Shareasale.com and many others that are free to sign up and have thousands of affiliate products at your disposal. Just make sure you follow FTC and Spam guidelines to keep everything on the up and up.
  5. You need to write a compelling offer and sales page that attracts your prospects to opt in for more information or get a free report/ebook or your own newsletter. If you decide to use your blog then just make sure that you put out great unique high quality content on your blog and keep it fresh.
  6. Once your prospects are in your funnel it is important to nurture this list and don’t blast them with sales pitches all the time but provide value and knowledge they can use. They might be interested in learning how to take their business to the next level and you could be at the right place at the right time to help them with their problems by providing a solution and creating an ally that will follow you as long as you provide value to them on a consistent basis. This is the reason blogging is so powerful to be used as a medium to pass on our knowledge and expertise or a physical product that provides relief or solve a problem and help others in the process. This is why a marketing funnel is so important to your success.

When you have a great funnel with a great product combination you will immediately know by the response of your prospects.

Improving Your Business Using Article Marketing

Share with others...Thanks!
Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on Tumblr

There are many ways of improving your online business but an overlooked area is, ” Article Marketing “.

article marketingWriting can be a passion, a profession, a craft or even a hobby. But more importantly a great  marketing tool. How?

If you have a business and your aim is to get the word out about you or your business, one great way to go about such a task online is through article marketing.

Marketing Strategies

If you own an online business, whether it is a start-up or a big company, you are always thinking of ways to promote your stuff.

This is the main reason why creating web sites or a blog are popular these days. More and more people are getting hooked with how the cyber world quickly works wonders.

If you own a web site, the next thing that you will think about is how to drive more traffic to it. Just like how you do it offline, you have to reach out to your target market and lead them into clicking your URL.

Using social media platforms is an effective and popular way. And also:

Article Submission Sites

With the advent of many credible article submission sites on the web come entrepreneurs who are seeing opportunities open for them to speak out and pique the interests of their potential clients or website visitors.

Here is a great video about Article Submission Tutorial and Submission Strategy by Melbourne SEO Services.


And how do you go about this?

1. You create good content.

What does this mean? For example, you are a printingContent Marketing company who caters to business people and professionals.

You offer postcards, business cards, brochures, newsletters and the likes. When you write the articles, you will not only think about ways to design your postcards, you will go and direct the material to your target market. You can write an article about ways to design your postcards to help your food business.

This way, you already are capturing a niche market. These people will be interested with the products that you are offering.

They will be more interested if they will get a view of how they would be able to utilize such tools. And the perfect avenue for you to do so is through the good and functional article marketing content that you make available for these people.

2. Take time to fill out your Resource Box

When you submit articles to directories, they allow you a space to have your author’s biography. No, this doesn’t mean that you have to brag that you are a good looking, 40 something, with bank savings. You are not looking for a partner. You are looking for clients and more traffic to your site.

To do this right, include your name, your web site address, a tag line or your business’ unique selling proposition and a strong ” Call to Action ” for your readers.

This is the venue where you will promote your own stuff and lure them to click on your links to your website or blog.

Now do you understand why it is important to create quality content for this purpose? People must trust that you can deliver what you have promised.

They don’t know you. But in establishing your name as an expert in the field where they need help, they will learn to appreciate you and may later become interested as to what you are offering them.

You cannot achieve that with crappy articles.

If you don’t have the knack for it, you can always hire freelancers to do the job for you like Fiverr Dot Com, Freelance Dot Com or Elance Dot Com.

Another way to get articles cheaply is through PLR content sites but with this option it is imperative that you rewrite at least 50% of content so you don’t get penalized for duplicate content. And also you might want to change the Headline and Sub-line wording.

This way, you will be able to provide article marketing to submission sites while you reap the benefits of such article marketing strategy through time.

Marketing 101 – How to create a successful business by marketing online

Share with others...Thanks!
Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on Tumblr

online marketingWe all know the power of network marketing and that every business needs some type of network marketing solution in order to remain competitive in their marketplace.

Many online businesses today are utilizing online network marketing and social networks to help bring in new customers, reach out to their existing customers and build sales through networking.

Just like networking person-to-person or via phone or mail messages in the past, the Internet allows us to connect with people and form successful networks through social media, email, direct mail and advertising on major networks like Google Adwords, Microsoft Ads, Yahoo Ads, 7 Search and many others.

The only difference in using the Internet for your network marketing effort is that you can reach a worldwide audience and generate a greater impact for far less money.

Here are some top considerations on why your business needs to focus on online business marketing:

  • Keeping up with your competitors: Content and network marketing is becoming the industry standard for advertising. Targeting an audience through print, television and radio is slowly becoming less effective because more and more people are consuming content online, cutting cable and doing research into purchases online before shopping.
  • Endless hunger for information: Customers today are always interested in consuming new information about a product, a company or an idea that a company might have. They quickly turn to social media and online webpages to find out more about a product before they consider purchasing. Without this information online you could be losing sales.
  • The power of mobile: with mobile devices you can instantly reach out to a large network of people through push notifications or even through e-mail marketing and local search ads. With more and more people turning to mobile devices and tablets for their web access you could draw people into your business while they are out and reach the widest possible network with web content that converts across many devices.
  • Saving your advertising money: With the help of a professional expert you can work at targeting your target market with a high degree of efficiency. Rather than wasting advertising budget reaching a large portion of customers that are interested in your product, systems like ad words, Facebook marketing and even social media pages can make sure that every dollar you spend on advertising is used most effectively.

For these reasons and more it’s extremely important that you revisit your current advertising strategy and include network marketing online as one of your tactics or a greater focus on it.
