How are you building your Online Home Business? Here are 7 tips that will help you increase your conversions

A great way to get leads to your business opportunity is to use solo ads. Solo ads will send traffic directly where you want your visitors to go. When using solo ads however it is not ideal to send them directly to your main site but rather to offer an incentive to join you so that you have their email address and can send follow up correspondence. If you do send the leads directly to your Business opportunity page and they do not optin with their email address you are likely to lose them forever.

Once your new lead has provided you with their contact details you need to keep entertaining them and provide value. Demonstrate to them that you are indeed a real person and most importantly that you are there to help them succeed. Keep emailing and track your open rates. If the first email you send out has a low open rate change the subject line and the first sentence and send it out to those that did not open the first time. Some people get lots of email and may not see your first email as it might have been lost in all the emails they get.

Here are 7 tips  you can use to increase your  conversions

1. interview other people from your business opportunity community who are getting results and share their stories and results

2. Optimise your follow-up sequence, add success stories of others in there. Testimonials are great. Remember facts tell stories sell

3. Create a killer bonus package – if you have some experience offer a one- on- one consult with you.

4. Start making videos of yourself either face to camera or keynote videos sharing some value – this helps your subscribers realise that you are a real person and helps  position you as the expert.

5. Add a 30-90 day sequence of your emails or commit to just mailing your list every day.. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Consistence is key here

6. Work with 1-3 people to in your team once they results you can then SHOWCASE them to your subscribers.

7. Get to live events. Make videos & take pics with Top Earners and then integrate that into your marketing. Get social

The important thing is to get people to know, like and trust you remember, people buy you first then they join your company.
People are buying a feeling, first then what you are selling second. They are looking for you to solve their problems. Put your subscribers needs first and they will soon trust you.

Product Creation – It’s a game well worth starting- Guest Post By Steven Lucas

Published on July 10, 2014 by in Direct Selling

Today it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Steven Lucas who has kindly written me a guest post on Product Creation.

Steven is also an author and has some books published on Amazon.

Like me Steven works full time but still manages to have an active blog. This is a great post and do yourself a favour and pop on over to his blog too.

Thanks Steven for your contribution

Internet marketers are often told that they should create their own products, but quite often they’ll trot out the same old excuses. “I don’t know enough”, “I’m not expert enough” or “There’s nothing new to say”. These combined with I’m no good an English or I don’t like writing, are the ones that seem to kill any attempt at product creation before it even starts.

 

The experts are right though. You do need to create your own products. If you are an affiliate for someone else’s stuff there may become a time when they decide to stop selling it, and they won’t warn you in advance either. So if you’ve just spent time and money putting together a big campaign for somebody’s product, it could very easily all go down the pan in an instant. This is the strongest reason for making your own digital products.

 

The other main reason, of course, is that you could be the one who has hundreds of affiliates selling your products with your name on them, spreading your fame and building your brand – Just like you’re probably doing for someone else right now.

 

Dealing with the above excuses is really quite easy. By doing what you’re doing already, you probably know more than the average person, and that level of knowledge is all that you need to get started. You might not be an expert in the global scheme of things, but just by publishing your own e-book, recording an interview for someone else or putting up a video of you talking about as aspect of your favourite niche – you will start to be perceived as an expert by your buying public.

 

As for being no good at English, many of today’s marketers seem to make a virtue of how bad they were at school, graduating with no qualifications but how they’ve still gone on to be a success, and every last one of them will have several products (at several price levels) that they at least provided the seed ideas for. So there’s clue number one. They didn’t necessarily write every word themselves. All they did was provide a list of subjects, sub-headings or ideas to someone else who can write for them to turn into an e-book.

 

Once you have a book then why not read it out loud into a microphone plugged into your computer? Using a free program called Audacity, you’ll be able to turn your book into an audio too and if you don’t like the sound of your voice then head over to the usual micro-job sites and find someone whose voice you do like to do the job for you.

 

Finally, use Powerpoint or a free equivalent (Open Office, Libre Office and a few others) to make up some slides of the high points of your book or speech and use some of the free movie making software to… well, make a movie. You might need to spread the timing of the slides out to match the speech, or just create some more slides, but by the time you’ve finished (or the person you’ve hired has finished), you will have 3 products that you can use to brand yourself as an expert. Written, audio and video products are the 3 ways to reach your buyers and by offering all three you will cover everybody’s preferences. They are also 3 separate sources of revenue if you choose to market them that way. And most importantly, they are yours and under your control. A great asset to your business.

 

If you’d like to know more about product creation, please feel free to grab my ebook – Product Creation for the Terminally Terrified at http://www.stevenlucasmarketing.com/sm-ccc This contains more detailed information about how to get started, resources to help you and tips for continued inspiration.

How to add buyers to your list for almost free

Can’t get FREE traffic? Stop failing online right now!! Learn to get FREE traffic to your website the right way with me!

This method takes a little bit of time but can add handsomely to your bottom line and add subscribers to your list.

As you already know, a buyer is worth far, far more than a simple

subscriber, and here’s how to get buyers added to your list for free…

Step 1:

Create a short report that solves a key problem.

In other words, one problem, one solution. Simple. Now give it a great title. In fact, spend as much

time on the title as you did writing the report, because the title has to grab

attention and get them to read it cover to cover.

Step 2: Repeat step 1,

only with a different problem and solution in the same niche.

Step 3: Set up a squeeze page to offer Report #2 for free

in exchange for their email address.

Step 4: At the end (and possibly the beginning) of Report #1,

write teaser copy to entice them to go to your squeeze page and grab Report #2. If you did

a good job of giving great content in Report #1, this should be easy because

they’re going to be eager to read more from you.

Step 5: Go to forums and give away Report #1 with Master Resale Rights.

This means they can sell the report or give it away with paid products, but they

cannot alter the report in any way. This is crucial because you don’t want your

link altered or removed.

Step 6: They add your report as a bonus to their paid products,

or sell it outright for a nominal fee such as $7. People read it, love it, and go to your

squeeze page to give you their email address so they can get more great stuff

from you, like Report #2.

That’s it. It’s a system you set up once and forget about, other than

periodically checking to see how many new buyers have been added to your

list. The beauty of this system is 4-fold…

* obviously it’s fairly easy,

* you only have to set it up once and then you can forget about it,

* you’re building a list of buyers and buyers ONLY,

* and you’re building your list on other people’s traffic.

Brilliant!

Webinars vs Google hangouts

Published on June 21, 2014 by in Direct Selling

Are Webinars and Google hangouts  For You?

Google hangouts have become a great way to do presentations online.

Google hangouts allow you to have more than one presenter on at one time and you have the ability to share screens

and all sorts of really cool stuff. Hangouts are a great way to do training as your students

can get on and ask you questions right on the hangout.

You can have presenters that can share their success stories.

The great way about Google hangouts is that they go live to air and are instantly recorded

You can edit these recordings and send the replay out to the people who could not attend.

You can even just record yourself and use this as a training session then

and you can run them while you man the chat box.

Google hangouts are very versatile and of course get great

Google rankings

I have a hangout set up on one of my Power Lead System pages that shows you how

to structure a hangout

Have a look here http://www.plshangouts.whensocialmeansbusiness.com/

Everything below that talks about webinars can now be used for hangouts.

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to make good money online is by doing

webinars. Here’s how it works in a nutshell: You choose a date and topic for

your webinar, promote it, give great information on the webinar and then

promote a product at the end. It’s like one big informational sales letter, in

that you begin by giving away a great deal of awesome info, and you close by

offering them even more information or a service or membership they can use

to implement what they’ve just learned.

If you either have a skill that others want to learn, or you can interview an

expert who has the skill people want to learn, the you can do a webinar.

Here are the steps to ensure your webinars generate income…

1. Make the webinar an experience. There is so much I can say about this,

but it might all boil down to the following: Do NOT be boring. As you

put your webinar together, think about your customers and what they

want to learn and experience. Make it interesting, exciting and fun.

Plan to show major enthusiasm for your topic, and to answer questions.

Remember, they can leave the webinar any time they like, so make sure

it’s worth staying for.

2. Provide great tools. If you’re partnering or using affiliates, provide great

blog posts and emails so they can drive as much traffic as possible to

your opt-in page. And provide a good variety – you don’t want every

affiliate sending out the same email, since they begin to look like spam.

Instead, consider helping each affiliate to write a unique email tailored

exclusively for their list.

Now after you have done your hangout it is time to get it ranked on Google. I came across this great WSO

to get them ranked so you can get more traffic and more subscribers on your list.

Take a look 

Now I have on my list of things to do is to structure a Google hangout that will give great content about getting traffic to my blog and then introducing

the attendees to the great man Dean Holland. After all Deans Methods Do work so this will be a great way to create a new sales funnel for Deans Products

Some great results from My WSO and more sales from solo ads

Published on June 14, 2014 by in Direct Selling

Wow what a week it has been. I did a little experiment and sent my Solo ad Survivor optin link to some solo ad sellers to give out to their new customers. This has lead to more people opting in and some great feedback. There is more good news though. In my solo ad survival guide I placed some links to some relevant JVZOO products that I have also been getting sales. So my advice to you would be to get stuck into creating a product and put it on the Warrior Forum. If you are not feeling confident about creating a product here is something that helped me and it is a real eye opener. the product is called Product Creation Rehab and is very easy to read and understand. Once you go through the product here is a link that you can use to sell it yourself. So go through this simple product get your product on the warrior forum and start getting more traffic and sales. When you have some extra subscribers on your list send them your success story and send them to this link and get your own sales as well.

Also if you are still on the fence with buying solo ads all of my sales so far have come from Solo ad buys. I also have a follow up sequence that I am using and the people who did not stick around to watch the video on the sales page and optin to the original email send usually optin on the second or third auto email. My advice is to stick with it guys and success will come.

If you would like a copy of my follow up emails that I am sending just leave a comment below

My WSO getting leads using my Solo ad Survival Guide

Published on June 3, 2014 by in Direct Selling

well I did it. I got my WSO up on the Warrior forum. I was going to sell it but then when I went to put the thread on there what sis I see but another WSO that was titled Solo ad  Buyers Survival Guide. You can imagine my reaction to that. It was not pretty. So I put it on for free and there have been 118 views 25 optins. I am now going to start contacting Solo ad sellers and see if they would like to offer this guide to their solo ad buyers. I have a few contacts in the solo ad business so just need to get a page together that will sell the free product and get them to optin. I have my blog website address as a header and also have links to my solo ad selling site and a couple of other affiliate links in the report. the feedback I have had from people who have read the guide has been very positive. After a month or so I will start to place this on document sharing sites as I have heard that this is really good for traffic generation. I guess the lesson is that if you create content once you can  leverage that content to drive traffic to your blog and build your list by only doing the work once. I remember going to a live event once and Ewan Chia was there. He was saying that he was still getting traffic and sales from content he had produced in 1998 this is truly amazing.

So if you have not had a chance to download my ebook yet then just click on the image below

solo ad survival header

 

Of course once I have them on my list I can them offer my new subscribers special offers on Solo ads and also tell them all about Dean Hollands Quality Products Find out more about dean here 

I would love you to leave your comments below after you have read my book

Another sale today but my traffic experiment failed

Published on May 26, 2014 by in Direct Selling

Last week I ran across Igor’s VIP solo ad group and thought I would take a look at what he had to offer as

Igor has a great reputation as a solo ad seller. In the solo VIP group you get priority listing for a solo ad. Well my solo ad ran last night and out of 466 clicks I got 172 optins to Deans BCB optin page and 1 sale. I was kind of expecting a far better result considering Igors clicks cost over $1 per click. Now I wait and let Deans sales team take over and wait and see if I get some more sales come through. I have had 2 other sales from purchasing solo ad so they do work. I have also posted links in Facebook groups and also twitter and a site called DNTX. DNTX offers a service where you are able to pay per view on parked domains when a person searche for a domain that has expired or is parked they get redirected to your offer. This is supposed to be very good but I did not do well and got one click for $50 I targeted ite that had the keyword blogging so this traffic souce is off my list.

I was also introduced to a new IM Lead Dynamo. This service is offered by a gentleman named Lewis Turner who has been putting a series of webinars out about solo ad Business sucess. A you know I sell solo ads so I have watched these vdieos and have to say my business gets better every day. I paid $97 for 400 clicks which is a very good price. They strive for a 95% Tier one rate so this is an extra special deal. However my Clicks are due to go out in the next 48 hours and the proof will be in the results.

I like to try different forms of traffic and do lot’s of research about what is working well. Email still appears to have the highest optin rates which is why I think solo ads work so well. I am doing my homework on making high converting lead capture pages and putting together a swipe file of email subject lines and body text and studying them and even writing them out by hand as this helps me get into my brain the trigger points to make people open and click. It has been and continues to be a great learning experience. Pleas feel free to leave a comment below and share where you are getting your traffic fron and what sort of results you are getting. Oh and do come

back and find out the results from IM Lead Dynamo

It surely is great being a part of Dean Hollands iPro program. Every week Dean has a webinar and for me this is scheduled for 1am in the morning so I wait until my other half is in bed and snoring then I sneak in with my phone and headphones and wait patiently for Dean to fill me with inspiration. You have to be thankful for todays technology. Here I am warm under the covers listening to Dean who is on the other side of the world, now that is pretty cool. Tonight I am having a coaching session with someone who lives in Isreal That is going to be exciting. In fact I think I might be a little nervous

Now back to what is happening with ipro. If you need a reminder about what ipro is it is Dean Hollands Complete Sales Funnel. I have partnered up with Dean and now I am able to promote his products and I do not have to create my own sales funnel. Dean has some pretty cool products starting with the Big Commission Blueprint. in the Big Commission Blueproint dean walks you through from beginning to end and explains the very thing s you need to do to have a 6 figure business online and it is not as hard as you think. I really love the way Dean makes everything so easy.

Dean has just informed us that he is packing his funnel with more products which means we can offer more value to our customers. Dean has the philosophy to offer 10x the value of the product and he doesn’t skimp anywhere. Truly click here to find out for yourself. So if we offer more value then our customers will be loving giving us more money. I do so love iPro. If you would like to join then all you have to do is watch the video here

Oh and the most exciting thing of all is that Dean is having a live seminar. This seminar is going to be jam packed full of awesome information. If you are in the UK Follow this link.  The name of the seminar is Automated income Seminar Can you guess what it might be about?

So Shiny object Syndrome Still a problem

Published on May 10, 2014 by in Direct Selling

Welcome back.

I wanted to Share some more of my journey with you all. I have been struggling on the internet trying very hard to make a full time income for what seems like forever and even now I am still suffering from that shiny object syndrome. I think I am in need of some sort of therapy as I always get sucked into the sales copy and find myself pressing that buy button before I even realise it. I have got that FOMO issue down pat. What is FOMO? Fear Of Missing Out. I think every thing is a great deal and I need to have it all.

The last shiny object I brought was the video maker fx. I have to say I am very inpressed with this. It is so easy to use and I have to say I did a pretty good job of my first video which is to promote Dean Hollands iPro Partner program. I love this program and I am getting so much out of all the info inside. Dean really knows his stuff and the thing I relate to most is that Dean had all the debt problems that I have at the meoment and travelled a similar path to me. He has created his ipro partner program so you do not have to do the hard yards like he did. Everything you need is in this brilliant program. You get a very high converting Lead Capture Page and this is the entrance into Deans funnel. Once your leads are in there Dean has a team of very talented advisers who will chat with you and discuss what you would like your internet journey to look like. so my job is over as soon as I get the lead to Dean and his team. Even better there are a whole lot of real quality products. Dean is the man when it comes to value added products. so if you want to take a sneak peek at  Deans products just leave your email here

Oh and I almost forgot here is the video I made with Video Maker FX
