Internet Marketing From Scratch – A 6 Step Starter Guide
I am sure you can imagine there are so many people online making money in equally so many different ways.
Well how about I show you one of the ways that does work? I mean one that will help you start up even if you do not know exactly how to?
There really is nothing fancy here are 6 basic steps to s to get you started from scratch.
Step1 ) To make any kind of money online or offline for that matter you simply have to sell something so look for a product to sell. You could create your own product but why try to reinvent the wheel when there are already lots of products out there waiting to be sold? You will find thousands of these at ClickBank.com or CommissionJunction.com and AssociatePrograms.com for instance.
Step 2.) Look for a product close in theme to your chosen affiliate product to give away. Yes to give away. Reason being you are going to be asking for people interested in your products to give you their email address so you can keep in touch with them. This product can be a simple but informative eBook of between 10 – 15 pages. A quick read at one sitting. You can get such a product by doing a search on Google for Rebrandable affiliate products that allow you enter your affiliate links in the eBook so you can receive a commission once someone clicks and buys from the affiliate links in the book.
Step 3.) Subscribe to a reliable auto responder service. This service allows you to keep in regular contact and build a relationship with people interested in your subject or topic. This really is a must have software if you want to make it online so get one. You would run into all kinds of trouble trying to do this on the cheap by sending emails and trying to keep in touch from your own email account.
Step 4.) Craft a series of follow up email letters. Write from the point of view that you are trying to establish a relationship with someone interested in your subject. You want to come across as being helpful. To do this you must know a lot about the benefits of product or service (free or for sale). It’s a better option if you have used it yourself. Be prepared to write about 7-10 letters for starters.
Your first email can simply be a welcome email and explain also what you have in store in the coming emails. Of course do not forget to include your for sale affiliate product links at the bottom of the email. Your auto responder will allow you test how often your affiliate products links are being clicked on.
Step 5.) Generate a web form for your squeeze page. A squeeze page is a simple web page that allows those interested in your product to enter their name and address to receive something from you. It is best to collect the names and addresses of people interested in what you have to offer before anything else. Your auto responder generates this web form code and you insert it in your squeeze page to generate your ‘opt in box’. This is where your prospect enters their name and email address to receive your give away product.
Step 6.) You need to let a lot of people and I do mean lots of people know about your web form/opt in box link. This is so that they can sign up by entering their name and address to receive your free give away. These people must be targeted as this is what will grow your list very quickly. To get lots of people to your web form you can use both free and paid ways. Paid (banner ads, pay per click) and free methods by writing and submitting articles on the subject of your product. When the readers read your advert and click on your our link they will become subscribed to your list.
Be aware that the above method I have laid out is not going to happen overnight. It is a process that works if you work it. Choose your free give away product carefully. Make sure it offers useful and actionable information.
The more people that sign up to your list, the more people you can contact with your follow up emails and the more of your affiliate products you will be able to introduce and make a commission from.
