Online Marketing in a Nutshell (Sifting for Diamonds in the Rough)

Imagine all the prospects you attract to your business as being a large mound of gravel.

Online Marketing in a Nutshell (Sifting for Diamonds in the Rough)

But hidden in that gravel are diamonds.

Your job is to sift through the gravel to find the diamonds, and to do this as cheaply and effectively as possible.

You want to spend the majority of your marketing time and money on the diamonds – not the gravel.

Look at it that way and you’ll wake up every morning with the excitement of a prospector – filled with hope and possibility.

You could be just one email, or one ad, or one click away from your fortune! Keep sifting!!

Case Study: How to Get an Army of Affiliates PAYING You to BUILD Your List of Buyers

I ran across this a couple of years ago, and I have to say I was impressed. In fact, I just about joined this myself, and I’m a seasoned pro. This was done by a group of seasoned marketers, but there’s no reason why a new marketer or marketers couldn’t do it, too.

Last time I checked, this funnel I’m about to describe is still up and running and going strong. I don’t want anyone to actually steal their exact system, sales copy and funnel, so I’m going to just give you the highlights and you can fill in the rest:

First you start with a sales funnel. You’ve got a squeeze page offering a terrific little “how to do marketing” t

Is Your Sales Funnel Earning $24,000 per Month Automatically?

If you think about what’s living in the ocean, you’ll realize there’s everything from so-small-you-can’t-see-it plankton, to whales the size of apartment buildings.

The same holds true for people on your lists and in your funnels.

There’s the freebie seekers and tire kickers who will never become customers. Yes, I suppose you could say they’re the plankton. And they get directly or indirectly eaten by most everything else in the sea.

Working your way up, you’ve got tiny fish, bigger fish, crazy big fish, dolphins, small whales and HUGE whales.

Make $500 a Week Selling Skype Slots

Okay, your results will vary on this one. Frankly, I don’t see any reason why a person can’t make $500 per DAY, but as always, it depends on what you do with the info I’m about to share with you.

Make $500 a Week Selling Skype Slots

First, there is a stipulation – you must be really good at something that others want to know about. For example, if you’re really good at solving a particular problem or reaching a particular goal, then this might be right for you.

Let’s say you know how to list build like crazy while spending very little money. Or you know how to write copy that converts, or how to get far more done in less time, or how to get podcasters to interview you, or…

The possibilities are endless. As long as you have a skill or knowledge that other people need and want, you can do this.

If you don’t, first get a skill and then do this.

Is Your Thank You Page Hurting Your Business?

Here’s 6.5 Ways to Fix It

Someone joins your list and what do they see?

Is Your Thank You Page Hurting Your Business?

“You are subscribed. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking this link. Thank you.”

Wow! That really built some rapport, now didn’t it! I tell you, I am so fired up about being on another list that I could just… well… actually I’m not, and I think I will unsubscribe. Thank you.

If the above example is anything like your thank you page, then you’re blowing it.

Your thank you page is an excellent place to build rapport and get your new subscriber to become even more invested in your budding relationship.

With that in mind, here are 6.5 ideas of what you can do with your thank you page that won’t have new subscribers turning away in boredom, annoyance or revulsion:

Do You Have Successive Approximations?

Huh??

Got Any Successive Approximations?

Ever notice how the various professions create new terms to try to make us feel stupid?

I hope you don’t do that to your readers. And if you catch me doing it, slap me. Please.

Now then… a “successive approximation” is a rather silly term for a psychological trigger that you, as a marketer, really should know…

Because it can put money in your pocket.

Here’s what it is in a nutshell:

Once someone has performed an action – no matter how small – they’re more likely to continue performing additional actions that are in line with the first action.

In fact, they might even feel obligated to go along with larger requests.

So when someone has just given you their email address on your squeeze page, they are more likely to buy your $7 ebook than someone who hasn’t given their email address.

And when that person buys you

Making Daily Money from Freebie Seekers

Here’s a clever idea for making money with your list:

Making Daily Money from Freebie Seekers

You have a list of buyers and list of prospects, right?

Rent out your list of prospects to product owners, advertising their “Product of the Day.”

This is different, because nearly all solo ad sellers won’t let ad buyers send traffic directly to a sales page – they have to send it to a squeeze page.

But some product sellers want to focus only on getting sales, which is where your “Product of the Day” series comes in.

Each day, you rent your list of prospects to product owners. You’re not sacrificing your own buyers, and you’re giving marketers a chance to make sales directly from your list, using your good name for added credibility.

It’s a nice way to monetize all those freebie seekers who for one reason or another aren’t attracted to your products.
