List Building And The Best Way of Automating Your Business

Automation

Automating your list building can free you up for other valuable and important parts of your business you might enjoy doing, like marketing your business, content marketing or creating products etc… We are in the midst of technology revolution with automation and how everything online is a World Wide Web, ” Literally “. Time has connected us into a new era going forward beyond the 21st century.

7 Step Lead Magnet Guide

As automation grows, generations continue to evolve and improve the way they interact with their world, their business, and their personal affairs it has never before been so convenient to do almost everything using a smart phone while on the move in this fast paced world of technology.

Smart Phones account for more than 50% of searches results online even more than desktop computers. Today mobile marketing is a great inexpensive way to get people to interact with what you offer and potentially a subscriber or even a buyer of your products.

In other words, social media is a great place to be in front of your targeted audience and they have already segmented the audience for you so all you have to do is put in the search your audience would type in their search so you can connect with them. Makes Sense? Would love to hear your thoughts below…

But most importantly, this list building you are doing is a ” treasure chest ” of potential friends, subscribers, buyers, vc’s/jv’s and potentially loyal followers if you nurture your list properly.

List building has been one of the most kept secrets in fear of competition but in reality there are billions of opportunities in each market that competition should not even be in your vocabulary at this particular space in time. Why? Because if you have a good list that is responsive to your content the product does not matter but you have to remember that you have to target the right market with the right product.

This is why I highly recommend you have a third party email management system like Aweber, ConstantContact, MailChimp, or others available online, so you have more control of your list to build a lasting relationship with them which could last years.

Another area to be aware as if you didn’t already know, Right? Facebook continues to grow in search volume compared to other social media platforms at a beak neck pace of 79%.

What this means is that in order to keep up with your business list building efforts you need automation and there is no two ways about it. It would be literally impossible for anyone to keep up with their newsletter subscribers, buyers and communicating with them without using technology today.

In the old days a salesman would go door to door or use the old pony express waiting weeks before they would get a response to their mail orders in hopes of making a sale.

Today is a whole different ball game and the hard cold fact is that if you want to enjoy long term success you must embrace technology and automation or get left behind.

If you would like to find your audience, readers, subscribers and buyers they are online whether on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn or on search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and others.

You could still go door to door but why not leverage technology and reach more people in a single day using technology from the comfort of your home or office.

Which leads me to ” listing building “. The same applies for list building, if  you want to build a loyal list of followers, subscribers and buyers then you need a system in place.

list building

If you don’t have a system in place then you will struggle building a long term business online whether its affiliate marketing or selling your own product or services, either way you need a list building system that helps you grow your business.

List building is the number one concern of entrepreneurs who enjoy online success and it should be your priority as well.

Here are a few things to consider when automating your list building:

  • Capture Page
    Capture page with opt-in form

     Having a Capture Page – A capture page is a specific page where you could express the benefit of what they will expect when opting in to your list. The page will have a form where you will enter the list code from your email management system.

This is where you lay out the benefits of what your product or service you will provide them with in exchange for their email. For example: Maybe you want them to join your newsletter for blog updates, or giving away a free ebook or guide, newsletter about a specific topic they might be interested in or giving away a free chapter of your book.

If you use WordPress for your blog or website you could use a Plugin Software like FunnelKitGo, I have used them for a while and have create several professional looking capture pages like the one you see above. If you are on a budget this is a great option because it is packed with features and the price is awesome too.

  • Having an opt-in form – This is a form usually from an email management system which enables people to join your list in exchange for giving away something of value for free. You would embed your code from your email autoresponder list into your blog post HTML Text of WordPress for example or a page on your site.

The opt-in form can be in the form of a Pop-Up window using the options on an mail management system like Aweber a system I’ve used for more than 7 years. If you seen the one on this website then this one is by MailMunch which I use in conjunction with Aweber.

Always over deliver and give your readers, subscribers and visitors 110% value and the easier it will be to get people to subscribe, opt-in by giving you their email.

target market list building

  • Having an Opt-In Form – You can place it on the right or left column of your blog or website and is a must have and you can select where to show up. If you use WordPress when writing a blog post you can select the layout of the post ( Full Page or with columns when viewed live.

This will give your readers and visitors more opportunities not to miss out on that great free offer plus newsletter updates and can build your list faster.

If you are targeting the right market to your website and you offer a product for free, a free ebook, free report or guide, and give them free newsletter updates to stay in front of your audience.

If you don’t have at least this kind of system in place you are wasting your time and money on your marketing because you will always have to pay for marketing to get subscribers and readers to your website, blog or business which is not cost effective.

The idea is that when you have people subscribe to your email list you will always have them on your list and will make it extremely efficient to communicate with them by sending them new blog posts, business updates or new products you might want to share with them.

Which means that you don’t have to continue to pay for marketing to get the same subscribers, visitors and buyers. List building as you can see is one of the well kept secrets of marketing online. And it is why that the well known phrase in the marketing world, ” The Money Is In The List ” has been coined and associated with list building because it is truly the foundation of any long term business goals.

In order to build a long lasting business today you need to build a list while building a relationship with them so that they will become loyal followers and potentially loyal buyers as well.

If you become a problem solver to your market you will be an authority figure in their eyes and will be more apt to join your list and follow your content. Find what people are looking for and provide it to them, simple as that!

ONLINE BUSINESS

There are several ways to build an online business but one that I’ve used for over 7 years has been blogging online and finding a reputable companies, system (s) or affiliate programs is key to branding yourself.

Branding yourself is important to your better secured business plus enjoy your business for years and even decades. You do this by investing in additional wealth of knowledge you can interpret in your own way making it unique, targeting your market is important to note as well.

One rule that must be implemented right away from the beginning of your business is, You need to become a product of the product so you can speak honestly, with authority and intelligently about the company or maybe you have your own product.

This has been one of the most valuable gained knowledge over the years in online business. I continue to learn and invest as I grow my business using the right systems with reputable companies. Why? Because when you know, use and implement the systems and affiliate programs you would want only to promote or sponsor one that you personally know works and you can attest to it! Your Credibility is at Stake!

Blogging affords you the leverage of reaching millions of people in any primary niche and cross marketing into other niches which can be very lucrative as well.

The number one most valuable product in my business has been the Free Attraction Marketing Bootcamp. What this free 10 day attraction marketing bootcamp does is, It sends you different attraction marketing strategies daily and how to use it in your business and your marketing directly into your email everyday for ten days and when you finish the bootcamp I can honestly say that this attraction marketing bootcamp will help you improve your marketing strategy and generate more leads and make more sales in your business.

online business

This is why I’ve personally helped over 400 people in just one business and using it myself. This is how I know it works. I own most of EMP products and use them all in my business because they are effective and gets me results.

The question is, How can you build an online business with a blog ?

You must provide high value and a solution to a problem your readers or visitors are hungry for or are in need of so they will be more inclined to return to read more of your content, subscribe to your newsletter, or purchase your product (s).

You see, when you are freely giving away valuable information, knowledge, how to guides and educating people in a particular niche or market you fill a need or solve a problem and as a result many will follow you along your journey and even pay you for other product you might have.

People are always looking for solutions to a problem online and if you can give them the solution then you have a potential subscriber, follower, possibly a friend or JV – Joint Venture or business partner and in many cases someone who wants to invest in themselves.

If your audience comes to trust and like you they would be more than likely to buy from you later in the relationship.

What does this have to do with building an online business? Everything!

You see, you need to have this kind of focus and excitement before you begin blogging to make it the nerve center of your online business. Simply put, if your blog cannot provide a solution to a specific problem or fill a need then you are prong to failure from the start.

Word of advise: Do your due diligence in the market or niche you are targeting. Learn more about the niche by visiting websites like Google Keyword Planner which is a free tool to use and can provide you with information/data to help you launch your blog more prepared, and there are other tools but some will cost you.

Visit other blogs in your niche and create an alliance with them if possible, not only can you get a link back from a higher authority blog which can provide great exposure to you, your brand and your blog! You can do this by asking to guest post on their blog for exchange a link back to your blog.

I also wrote a great in-depth article about market research you can read here > How to do market research for your business website or blog

Find the right market by using a specific problem people might be searching for online and most of the times you could find through simply doing a Google Search.

You will find the top ten blogs or websites related to this market and can provide you with keywords they are using in their articles or pages by simply taking the Website/Blog URL and inputing it into Google Keyword Tool and it will provide you with a list of keywords they are using in their website or blog like I show you how to do in the article mentioned in previous paragraph.

Google keyword tool will freely tell you how many people are in your market and other related keywords you can use in your content and marketing.

Maybe you have an idea you think you would like to talk about with your audience on your blog but you should do a market research to see if you even have a market and more importantly, buyers!

I know Photographers, Knitting Instructors, Business Magazines, Carpenters, Architects, and many other online business (s) whom use a blog to keep their audience up to date on new developments, new products , or new information.

Use an autoresponder like Aweber mail management system to build your own list (s) of subscribers and/or buyers. With an autoresponder you can keep in touch with your subscribers and buyers to build a long lasting relationship and potentially lifetime consumers as well.

And it is important that you truly and honestly enjoy what ever you blog is about. Just make your blog, Yours! Have a good time, provide high value and meet wonderful people plus as a bonus you can get paid by recommending products you have used, you can tell them more about how it will help them as it has helped you.

You can truly enjoy blogging and sharing plus it can be the best experience in your online business when you love what you do. You’ll never work a day in your life!

Let your creativity and ideas flow as if you were speaking to your best friend (s). online business ideas

Quick Tips:

  • Set aside time to dedicate to your blog away from distractions.
  • Develop a routine of a certain time you would like to do your blogging.
  • Everyday create a list of at least 5 top priorities needed to be completed first the following day and then work on less priority tasks like emails or social media or making phone calls.

Learn how to leverage social media outlets to bring in awareness to your brand, products and your blog. Invest in self-development areas like, ” Marketing “.

If no-one sees your products or your brand then simply your business dies as quickly as you start your business online.

There are free methods to do marketing as well and these methods combined with paid methods plus a complete system to market your business professionally from the beginning and have the training plus step by step video instructions on how to use the complete system.

Me, I prefer in the morning when having a nice cup of coffee and a fresh mind.

One of the habits developed over the years has been improving my time management by jotting down that great idea you just thought of while commuting to work in the morning and then use it for an awesome blog post or article you would like to expand on later on.

It has worked great for me and think it will for you as well. There are endless ideas all around you, you just have to be more observant.

If we don’t jot these valuable ideas down when you think of them you will surely forget what it was like I have many times until I learned this little technique and it has allowed me to come up with some great content over the years.

You can also find out what is trending that could be related to your market. You can use a free tool like Google Trends and do a search for your market.

Don’t just copy and paste from another website or information you find in a magazine. This is copywriting infringement and Google frowns on this however, you could syndicate by using your own take on it and sending them to the article if they wish to read more.

Recommended things you need for your own online business blog:

  • Domain Name – Use a name that either has the main keyword or part of the product in it. Example: If people look for Popcorn don’t you think that the one with popcorn in the domain name would show up in the search results?
  • Hosting – There are several hosting companies like Hostgator.com, 1and1.com and others. I’ve used both of these and they have worked well for me. Your WordPress Blog platform will be installed through here. There are easy videos to follow and if you have questions post them below.
  • Email Management – I’ve used Aweber.com for years and always very reliable. This system will allow you to have multiple list from multiple businesses and allow you to reach everyone personalized emails by just writing one email. This is a must have if you want to grow your business.

How do you start your MLM lead generation?

mlm lead generationThis is an excellent question to ask before you begin spending money on any MLM lead generation you’ll need to start building your MLM business.

Why should you want to do MLM lead generation in the first place?

In recent years the MLM business industry has gotten a black eye because of the false hyped promises of making money and enjoying your freedom.

Only a few people considering how many people have tried and have ever achieved any level of success in any MLM business. And even less people have ever been able to maintain some level of achievement over a significant amount of time.

That does not mean that MLM companies are bad or that they don’t work. Neither does it make the opportunities available to the average person as a ways to make some extra money or even as a way to really change your lifestyle.

MLM lead generation is the way to go if your starting your mlm business or even if you’ve been in the game for a while but never paid to much attention to mlm lead generation.

lead generation

Here are 2 important benefits of MLM lead generation:

1. You don’t have to chase friends and/or relatives. If you have been in a couple of MLM businesses any period of time, maybe you have already approached your family and friends and used up any credibility you had when you were not successful the first few times.

2. MLM lead generation is an easy and duplicatable way to building your business so that you can pass it on to your downline. A successful network marketing company will tell you that one of the more important  components of achieving success is duplication.

Anyone can generate leads and contact them through the phone or the internet with the use of an email autoresponder.

Attraction Marketing Formula

Now that you have a better understanding of the benefits of MLM lead generation and how to market them, lets now take a look at the best of MLM lead generation results.

1. How many times can your leads be sold to? Most MLM lead businesses sell to their leads over and over again. You will be connecting with a prospect that has already been marketed to when you first made contact with them through your ads or social media. Essentially, you want to have your own leads that are only exclusively yours.

2. How old are these leads? Which lead would you rather contact? A lead prospect that has showed an interest in the last 48 hours or a lead from 48 days ago? Being able to attract a warm market, is a great benefit of a getting fresh MLM leads.

3. How many leads are you getting for your money? Obviously the more MLM leads you generate, the more leads you can generate at a time. This is really important when you are just starting out or when you are helping your downline get started.

4. How good are the quality of your leads? Nothing can compare to an efficient MLM lead generation strategy that gets you both the phone number and the email address and a few qualifying answers to frequently asked questions like “How much can you invest in getting started” or “How soon can you get started” or What is the best time to connect with you?”.

If your prospects are answering these kinds of questions, it means that you are getting a higher quality lead than if you just have an email address.

5. What should be the response rate? As your skill level improves at running your MLM lead generation will improve as well. But the higher quality leads will usually give you a much better response rate even when your skill level is at a novice level.

These are some of the finest MLM lead generation characteristics. Just be very careful when choosing a place to get your mlm leads and list building.

Word of Advice: Get your copy of the Attraction Marketing Formula which covers every aspect of lead generation and building a solid business foundation for any business. It will be the best $27 investment you’ll ever make for you and your business.

 

What Sales Funnel Software Is Right For Your Business?

When attempting to create a profitable sales funnel, there are a few elements in your sales funnels that should be addressed.

Sales Funnel

Are you using a sales funnel to funnel your subscribers, opt-in leads, sales leads or Newsletter subscriptions? If not, your flushing money down the toilet.

That means that you have to continue to pay for marketing to get new people to see your offer one time and never hear back from them again. One of two things will happen, you’ll run out of money or you will eventually quit because it is one of the fastest ways to close your business.


First, What is a sales funnel ? – The definition of the sales funnel (also known as a revenue funnel or sales process) refers to the buying process that companies lead customers through when purchasing products. A sales funnel is divided into several steps, which differ depending on the particular sales model. by RingDNA


Now, Imagine if you had a sales funnel where you gave away a free report, free ebook…

or free coaching and for this they would give you their email information and after they input their info then you will redirect them to an offer to buy your product…

If they don’t buy that’s ok, now you can follow up with them and send them other tailored offers they are interested in and still have the opportunity to sell them a product that solves their problem.

Yes, you can create a sales funnel on your website by creating a page with an opt-in form and redirect them to your offer you want them to see. But believe me I tried this method when I had a non-existing budget and learned a valuable lesson, Get a software or a system that has everything you need.

It is well worth the investment, time and money as well. If you are in this exact place right now and struggling to get your funnels created here I’ll discuss a few well known funnel softwares and some of the features and benefits.

In order for you to create profitable funnels you need these elements in your funnels:

  • You need a software that let’s you create an awesome sales funnel like FunnelKitGo, leadpages.net, MegaPhone, WPProfitBuilder, InstaBuilder or ClickFunnels.

Each one does a great job a creating powerful platforms you can use to increase your list building but you need to read every individual system to understand more, see what they offer and see if it meets your needs.

  • The second tool you need to have in place is an Autoresponder Email Management System like Aweber, GetResponse or ConstantContact. Unless you are part of or join an online business training platform like EMP ( Elite Marketing Pro ).

They are both companies who have been online for over 8 years and both have proven track records online. They have helped me grow and manage my businesses more effectively online.

Email services are all very great services to use. I’ve used Aweber for over 7 years and have been very happy with their service plus they have a great training program to help you build awesome Opt-In forms and show you how to increase your email conversions. This service will allow you to write a personalized email to your entire list at one time which saves tons to time to do other important tasks in your business.

  • The other piece of the puzzle is a wordpress website for easy and simple to use platform. Hosting is $10 a month to host your private website you control. Domain Name $10 to $15 bucks a year and an autoresponder like Aweber is $19.00 a month.

FunnelKitGo is a Plugin you download onto your computer and then you upload the entire zip file to your wordpress website under Plugins ( Add New ) and then activate the plugin. Now your ready to start building some awesome pages for your business or affiliate products/memberships.

I’ve used many systems and have narrowed to a handful that gets me results and allows my business to grow and scale as needed.
