Need An Online Business System That Works On AutoPilot?

What is an online business system and how can it run on AutoPilot you might be asking yourself, Right ?

There are a few things to consider when looking for an online business system that delivers results and is not excessively expensive. After all most entrepreneurs starting an online business don’t have a huge budget.

There are two ways to have a online business system that can run almost on autopilot:

  1. You can build your own sales funnel which we will be going over below.
  2. There are also online business systems that are already set up for you and all you have to do follow a couple of steps and your setup.

So, what are the components of an online business system ?

  1. You need a capture page or squeeze page.
  2. You need an email autoresponer service that manages your list for you and provide you with the ability to create opt-in forms.
  3. Preferably you need a website but not necessary. I’ll share the pros and cons of having or not having a website.
  4. You need a product or service to offer your prospects.
  5. I recommend you have a Free eBook or Newsletter to give away. I’ll share why you needs this below.
  6. You need emails set up with your autoresponder to be delivered to your email list.

Now let’s go over each of these areas below:

  • Capture Page or Squeeze Page:

Capture PageWhat is a capture/squeeze page and how does it apply to your business ?

A Capture/Squeeze Page is a page where you can include an opt-in form, a video, images and text which will provide your readers with a message you want to convey to them.

In the capture page you should have these elements to improve the chances of getting the prospect to opt-in your autoresponder form:

  1. An irresistible offer that they can’t refuse and will give you their name and email.
  2. The message should be clear and congruent with what they will find in the next page ( ie. your product or service ) after they have opted in to your list.
  3. If you include a video it is critical that you deliver the message and make sure you have a call to action at the end of the video like, ” Enter Your Best Email Below To Get Your Free Report, Free eBook or Free Newsletter ” etc…
  4. You will need to get the opt-in form HTML Code you will include in the capture page and input into the email autoresponder box you will find when creating your page.
  • Email Autoresponder: 

Email AutoresponderWhat is an email autoresponder ? An email autoresponder is a service that averages about $20 per month. What this service does is it collects the emails through your opt-in forms and places them in a specific list you designate within the autoresponder back office.

This service allows you to manage all of your prospects, buyers, readers, or newsletter subscribers all in one place. What is awesome about this service is it allows you to deliver content in a massive scale regardless of how big or small your list is.

If you wanted to stay in touch with a list of 1,000 or even 5,000 subscribers all you have to do is type up an email and select what group or list you want to send to instead of sending out 5,000 emails individually which would take you a very long time. This service also allows you to build as many lists or opt-in forms as needed.

Some of the more popular email autoresponders are: Aweber, Constant Contact, and GetResponse.

  • A Website: 

WebsiteAs I discussed earlier in this article, a website is optional but if you have your own product or service I recommend you have a website.

Even if you are selling affiliate products it is a good idea to have your own website specially if you plan on doing advertising on Google for example.

Some advertisers are not affiliate marketer friendly and having a website can help you bypass the red tape.

What are the Pros of having a website ?

  1. It is your domain and you can do what ever you want.
  2. You can choose a Domain Name that represents your product and/or company. A Domain Name will run you approximately $12 to $15 per year.
  3. Another benefit is, you can add your own products, affiliate products or what ever service you offer.
  4. You can design your website to your liking or what is more suitable for your products and/or service.
  5. It also allows you to have a blog on your site as well which I highly recommend if your going to be in business for a while. It is the best way to stay in touch with your audience, subscribers, readers and can provide them with solutions they are looking for.

What are the Cons of owning a website ?

  1. It takes work to keep a website updated.
  2. You need to be familiar with the working elements of your website. Including; how to set up your website, how to build pages, how to build a blog, how to incorporate your autoresponder and how to make your website user friendly.
  3. You need to know and understand SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ). Why? If you know how to optimize your website properly it can generate a nice flow of free search engine traffic to your site.
  4. You also need a Hosting account. This is where your website will be hosted and up-kept  for you. This will run you approximately $10 a month. You can use services like Hostgator, 1and1, Bluehost among the most popular.
  • You Need A Product or Service to Offer: 

ProductWhether you have your own product or service or even an affiliate product it needs to provide a solution for a specific problem or ailment the prospect has and more importantly it needs to be of high value.

In business we always try to over deliver and go beyond a customers expectations. Why? Because you only have one chance to impress your customers.

Today with the internet at their finger tips it is easier than ever to find someone else who will provide them with a solution to what they are looking for. So, it is important that you keep your eye on the bigger picture.

Which is having a long lasting relationship with your prospects, subscribers and consumers of your product. What this will do for your business is bring down the cost of marketing and running your business.

  • Free Report, Free eBook, or Free Newsletter:

Free ReportWhy do you need any of these ? Simply put you need to get your visitors and prospects to give you their email in exchange for your Free Report, eBook or Newsletter.

If you want to maximize profits and you keep a good balance sheet of your business costs, profits and losses you will understand why.

It is cheaper to keep a customer for life than it is to get a new one every time you want to sell a product because you can just send them an email with updates, new sales or discounts or just blog updates.

It is a more cost effective way to run your business and give you the opportunity of expanding and scaling your business as it grows with less costs involved.

Picture this for a moment; Imagine if you were to close the doors of your business tomorrow for one reason or another. The next day you can turn around and send your list an email and if you have taken good care of the people on your list they will respond positively to whatever it is you have to tell them.

Your email list will be the most pride possession you will have in any business. An email list is truly, ” Pure Gold ” because you can create cash on demand.

  • Emails: 

Email AutoresponderLastly, You need to have pre-written emails that you will include in your email autoresponder to send out automatically. These emails can be segmented depending on where your prospect, subscribers or buyers are in the process.

Meaning if one of your subscribers becomes a buyer than they should be forwarded to your buyers list and not receive the same email your newsletter subscribers or non-buyers are getting.

You can set this up when building your list inside the autoresponder service. Like Aweber for example they give you an option of selecting a box to forward them to the buyers list after they have made a purchase.

Earlier we talked about building your own capture page which is what we just discussed above and all the working elements of a capture page and a squeeze page.

Now I want to discuss online business systems already designed and set up where you just plugin your products using templates and forms provided to you by the service.

If you search online by the name of, Capture Page System, Squeeze Page System, Lead Generation System, Marketing Funnels, Affiliate Funnels you will find quite a few. The situation will be, Which one works best for my business and will get the results you are looking for.

In the past I have built my own capture pages and funnels and while I have enjoyed the experience I have to say that it is a lot of work.

But, If you don’t mind getting in the trenches I recommend you do it at least once to get the experience of what your funnel, capture page and/or squeeze page should have and what works best for you and your business.

I now work smarter and use ultimate sales funnel system already set-up where I just plugin whatever product I have to offer or just simply to build my list and allows me to mastermind with other entrepreneurs about what is working now and not yesterday. The internet is moving fast and you need to keep up.

Facebook Algorithms Update And How It Can Affect Your Marketing

Marketers Beware: Google’s Panda & Penguin updates have caused panic in many marketers doing shady search engine optimization techniques.

Now Facebook has made updates to it’s algorithms to clean out deceptive clickbait headlines.

facebook algorithmIt seems like Facebook is taking the same approach as Google. So, What does this mean for you as a marketer whether an online marketer or an off-line marketer ?

It’s real simple, if you want to keep your website and/or blog on the top of search engines and not disappear into the internet abyss then you need to read the rest of this article.

A few years ago marketers were using all kind tactics to game search engines to gain top rankings and all disappeared from front page results over night.

Then Matt Cutts came along and started to clean house and implementing algorithm changes that wiped out tens of thousands of websites over night including some big company name websites.

This report was put out yesterday and most marketers are not aware of this yet and could find themselves at the mercy of Facebook algorithms improvements.

Here are a few things we learned from our past experience dealing with Google’s Panda & Penguin algorithm changes and what you should be aware of if you want to continue to stay in top of the search engines:

  1. Do away with the, “Click Here To Learn More” call to action phrases.
  2. Use, “Discover” instead of “Click Here”
  3. Use “Explore” instead of “Click Here To Learn How To Become A Millionaire in 24 Hours”
  4. Don’t add deceptive links to your photos or better yet take links out of your photos if not you will be penalized. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
  5. Spend more time polishing your copy writing skills
  6. Improve your website/blogs etiquette and appealing content.

For Example: Don’t write headlines like:

” You’ll never believe which two stars got into a fight on the red carpet last night!! “

Key Take Away Here: If you provide high quality, unique and content that your readers want to be informed about…You Have Nothing To Worry About!

However: If you have been implementing the clickbait tactics, It’s time to reconsider and go back to the drawing board.

What Does It Take To Make Money From Home ?

I’ve studied the make money from home industry for the last 10+ years scouring the internet and buying every single shiny opportunity in my path!

Make Money From HomeWhat I have found out during these 10+ years is that it is simpler than I made it out to be, I just simply didn’t know any better.

After years of spending countless hours and money trying to figure all this make money from home stuff out I made a breakthrough. Now I want to share what I have discovered since then. I think you will enjoy the read and info I’m about to share with you.

In the first place you probably ask yourself, Why do I need to make money from home ?

And this is a valid question but one bigger question you should ask yourself is, Will I be able to retire and enjoy my retirement pension, social security and your 401K if you are fortunate to have one ?

Let’s talk about this for one minute and give you my view on what is transpiring as we speak:

  1. Most don’t have a 401K or retirement savings large enough to last them their lifetime on this earth. Kind of harsh but true.
  2. Most can’t retire at an age where they can enjoy their last years on earth and/or enjoy their family in their last years with all the changes in retirement age requirements and obligations that keep everyone working until the age of 70 or later.
  3. Education is not worth what it once was. Today millions of young adults graduate from university owing 10’s of thousands of dollars on student loans and can’t find a job in their field of study and end up working at a job they hate.
  4. Most jobs today don’t offer retirement benefits and this is why a lot of companies now offer part time employment to circumvent this. This means that most people can probably never retire and never have enough income to support themselves and their families.
  5. Medical benefits are barely affordable by few today and insurance premiums have increased in cost by double digits or more.
  6. The economy is in shambles and ready to implode at any minute regardless of what the main stream media says. The facts are clear if you do some digging around and get real accurate information from experts in the field of world economy and finance. You will discover very interesting information.
  7. The unemployment is more around the 20+ percent of unemployed including the young adults graduating from university.
  8. So, the question is; ” Are you going to be able to retire and not worry about an income to support yourself and your family ? ” The answer is more than likely, “NO”.

And a lot more but I won’t go into it here because I can spend the next month writing about this topic alone.

Top 3 Ways To Boost Your Affiliate Commissions Overnight

Affiliate Marketing can be very rewarding but you want to maximize your efforts to boost your affiliate commissions! 

The ideal world of affiliate marketing does not require having your one website, dealing with customers, refunds, product development and maintenance. This is one of the easiest ways of launching into an online business and earning more profits.

Assuming you are already into an affiliate program, whatAffiliate Marketing
would be the next thing you would want to do? Double, or even triple, your commissions, right? How do you do that?

 

Here are some powerful tips on how to boost your affiliate commissions overnight:

1. Know the best program and products to promote. Obviously, you would want to promote a program that will enable you to achieve the greatest profits in the shortest possible time.

There are several factors to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a generous commission structure. Have products that fit in with your target audience. And that has a solid track record of paying their affiliate easily and on time.

There are thousands of affiliate programs online which gives you a reason to be picky. You may want to select the best to avoid losing your advertising dollars.

Write free reports or short ebooks to distribute from your site. There is a great possibility that you are competing with other affiliates that are promoting the same program. If you start writing short report related to the product you are promoting subtly, you will be able to distinguish yourself from the other affiliates.

In the reports, provide as much valuable information as possible for free. If possible, add some recommendations about the products. Writing ebooks can get you good credibility and customers will see that in you and they will be enticed to try out what you are offering.

2. Collect and save the email addresses of those who download your free ebooks. It is a known fact that people do not make a purchase on the first solicitation. You may have to send out your message more than six times to make a sale.

This is the simple reason why you should collect the contact information of those who downloaded your reports and ebooks. You can make follow-ups to these contacts to remind them to make a purchase from you by telling them the benefits of the product.

Get the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the vendor’s website using a lead capture page or an opt-in form on your website. Keep in mind that you are providing free advertisement for the owners. You get paid only when you make a sale. If you send prospects directly to the vendors, chances are they will be lost forever and you will not have another opportunity to communicate with them.

But when you get their name and email, you can always send other marketing messages to them to be able to earn an ongoing commission instead of a one-time sale only.

Publish an online newsletter or Ezine. It is always best to recommend a product to someone you know than to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter. This also allows you to develop a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.

This strategy is a delicate balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue to write informative editorials you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity in your readers that may lead them to support you by buying your products.

3. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants. If you are already successful with a particular promotion, you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a percentage commission for your sales.

If the merchant is smart, he or she will likely grant your request rather than lose a valuable asset in you. Keep in mind that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so do not be shy about requesting for addition in your commissions. Just try to be reasonable about it.

Write strong pay Per Click ads. PPC search engine is the most effective means of advertising online. As an affiliate, you can make a small income just by managing PPC campaigns such as Google AdWords and Microsoft Ad Center or Facebook Ads. Then you should try and monitor them to see which ads are more effective and which ones to dispose of.

Try out these strategies and see the difference it can make to your commission checks in the shortest of time.
