How Do I Grow My Online Business?

I am answering the question of the week

THE SHORT ANSWER

Grow your email list…

My favorite subject begins now.

Let’s talk sales funnels.

So you’ve mastered a traffic source.

You are sending people to your landing pages and capturing their email address.

Now what?

Email addresses aren’t actually money.

Sure they can make money, but they are pretty useless to you right now.

So after you collect the email… what now?

Well let’s see.

We have someone that is already interested in you and what you have to offer…

They’ve already made a minor commitment by putting in an email address…

Seems a shame not to sell them something right?

So send them down a funnel..!

As soon as they click that button after putting in their email, send them to a page with an offer.

Guess what?

I promise you will be surprised when people start taking you up.

Will everyone?

Absolutely not.

But I can promise, if you make a halfway decent offer at a fair price, you will see people start buying.

For the first step in my funnel I usually do something under $50, so let’s say it’s $27.

I guess that assumes your sales page doesn’t totally suck.

But I’m assuming you have watched my free video so you would never have that issue.

So let’s say 200 people put in their email address.

Then 5% of those decide to buy the first product.

That means you probably spent about $200-$300 bucks.

You have 200 email addresses you can market to.

You made back $270 bucks.

And now the kicker.

Of those 10 people that bought the product, why not make them an additional offer?

They are clearly VERY interested in what you have to offer.

Can you make something additional that adds even more value and helps them even more?

Say you sell this product for $297.

And let’s say one of the ten buys that product.

Again… you will be surprised.

Here are your numbers.

1. $300 spent

2. $567 made

3. 200 email addresses gained that you can now use as free traffic

Are you seeing how incredible this is?

And these are totally real numbers.

This is how online businesses not only survive, but thrive.

Sure, this is a best case scenario.

But even if you simply break even, you can run this scenario hundreds of times

build an email list of hundreds of thousands of people

and then launch a product with zero dollars in ads.

And that’s the beauty of a sales funnel.

If you can truly comprehend this one single thing, you can succeed online.

If you don’t… watch my video… What is a sales funnel

You can spend double what you would on ads

because you make twice as much off each customer

(and hopefully provide twice as much value)

Remember.

Learn, apply, learn, apply.

Hope this helps

Are Affordable SEO Services A Safe Option to Grow Your Business Online?

SEO is a long term collection of services which are used to boost your brand and ensure you are seen by the top search engines and your clients. It helps you move up the ranking in search results using a variety of methods from keywords to links. The problem is that many companies try and manage this on their own and it is a full time job that requires ongoing monitoring and amending to ensure that you are not compromised and drop in ranking at any time.

Can you afford it? This is the question on all companies lips, but the good news is that good quality SEO services can be affordable and they do not need to break the bank. That being said, as long as you feel confident with the internet marketing specialist you have chosen, then price will not be a factor at all. Most of the top SEO companies will provide you with competitive rates that you can manage into your marketing budget.

Even if you find affordable SEO services, you will want to ensure you are receiving the best quality service. The company you choose should have extensive industry experience of a minimum of ten years. They should provide a host of internet marketing solutions to assist you in achieving your online marketing goals.

They should have passion and this should shine through in the design of their website, the services they provide and how they treat their clients. A good sign is to identify the type of companies they have worked with. Maybe even go through some of their past work to identify if you feel they are passionate enough to push your brand forward in the future.

Any SEO services provider you choose offering affordable prices should have an outstanding track record. You mustn’t be shy to ask them about this and they should be more than happy to show you their statistics. You should be able to see the increase in their clients ranking over tie. Remember search engine optimization doesn’t provide overnight success, it is a long term project that will provide you with brand visibility, increased customer base and improved online revenue moving forward.

In addition to this, they should have a decent sized customer base. Don’t be put off when you hear an affordable SEO service provider has more than three hundred active customers. This should be a feather in their cap. There is a good reason why they have this many customers to start with. You can ask them about their own team size and how they manage the demand to ensure you receive the level of service that you deserve and expect.

Further, you will want to identify their customer retention rate. Another very important thing to take note of when making use of affordable SEO service providers. Ideally the company should have a very high customer retention rate of ninety nine, if not one hundred percent. This means that they are providing all those hundreds of clients with the results that they need, which is why they are still with this top quality SEO services provider.

Finally, any affordable SEO service provider should be focused on your company, your needs, your industry and your clients. Everything they do for you should be tailored to your business to ensure your success in the long run.
