I get asked this question all the time, what is the secret to success online? I’ve been marketing online for a few years now and the one common theme has always been this, build your list! All of your big marketers online focus on list building, the beauty of building a list is that you can keep in constant communication with thousands of people at a time. But to build a list you need to have a few things in place. In this blog post I want to talk about the 3 things you will need to build a list and make money online.
1. A Blog – You want to have a blog that you own and control. This will be your home base and what you will center all of your marketing around. Blogs are also a great place for people to find you and learn more about what you do. It’s your blog so you can talk about what you want when you want. People will read what you have to say and will begin to know, like, and trust you. If you’re going to blog make sure you install WordPress and that you get hosting. I’ve been using Host Gator for the last few years and haven’t had any problems.
2. A Lead Capture Page – Once you have your blog setup you need to have a lead capture page to send your visitors to. If you don’t know, a lead capture page is a mini site you design to get people into your funnel. The image below is an example of a lead capture page.
The only goal of a lead capture page is to capture a lead, that’s why they are designed to look like thin mini sites without a lot of content. You want to offer your visitors something of value so they’ll give up their name and email. Focus on getting the optin and nothing else (no distractions). The lead capture page above is one of the lead capture page templates you get with MLSP. MLSP is basically a marketing system to help network marketers build their businesses online and generate upfront cashflow.
3. An Auto-Responder – If there is one takeaway you get from this post I hope it’s this, get yourself an autoresponder ASAP! An auto-responder is basically software you use to send out email messages to your subscribers. I like Aweber because they’ve been around for a long time and they just flat out rock! An auto-responder lets you leverage your efforts. Say you have a list of 1,000 people. Instead of having to manually send out a message to each of those thousand people on your list, all you do is send out a “broadcast”. That’s the beauty about having a blog, after you publish a post you can send out an update to your list letting them know that you just published a new post. This basically creates a loop and gets them back to your blog, powerful stuff indeed!
Success online is easy if you have the proper mindset and you just flat out make a decision. All of your success stories online are from people who made the decision to figure this internet marketing thing out, at any costs!
