3 Key Steps of Successful Online Business
In the past, I did not earn huge amount of money from my online business until I discover these 3 key steps.
- Find an affiliate offer.
- Build your campaign.
- Drive traffic to build your list.
Here’s the lesson, online business is a simple business so don’t over complicate it because simple thing always works.
Step #1: Find An Affiliate Offer For Your Online Business
Here are some websites that you can find an affiliate offer.
There are tons of products and online business idea out there but I highly recommend you to sell something you passionate in at the first place for you to get your feet wet. Once you are more familiar to online business, you can expand your business by promoting more affiliate offers.
Step #2: Build Your Campaign
Squeeze page is a page for you to capture your visitors’ contact information to build your list/data base. Once the visitors turn into your subscribers, you can sell any offer to them again and again and again in the future. Here’s a website where you can build an instant squeeze page for as low as $5 per squeeze page – Fiverr.com.
Email follow up system is a process for you to build a good relationship with your subscribers and make more sales. For example, you can give them some free e-books or remind them to purchase the your offer. Statistic shown that people only buy a product after they were exposed to the offer for at least 11 times. Will you call your all your customers for 11 times to ask them to make a purchase? Definitely no, right? So email follow up system is a perfect vehicle for to do that on completely autopilot once you setup the system. It’s a paid software but you can try it FREE for 30 days on Aweber.
Please get your step 2 done before you proceed to step 3 because they are essential for building a successful online business.
Step #3: Drive Traffic to Build Your List
Traffic is the key to succeed in online business. Once you done you campaign, it’s time for you to drive as much traffic as possible to your squeeze page.
There are 2 types of traffic – Paid Traffic & Free Traffic.
Paid traffic is the traffic your generated form advertisement like solo ads, Facebook PPC, CPA network, Pay-per-view ads and etc… The cost of each visitor that you drive to your squeeze page can be from as low as $0.02 to as high as few dollars. Paid media is one of the fastest way for you to drive tons of traffic to your squeeze page but you can lose thousands and thousands of dollar if you do it wrongly.
If you are a beginner and you don’t have much advertising budget, I suggest you to start with free traffic. You can get free traffic through social media platform like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or build a website like mine. Free traffic also known as organic traffic and they are more targeted as compare to paid traffic. You can get organic traffic by providing values like articles, videos, educative info-graphic and etc to get your audiences’ attention and drive them to your squeeze page.
I recommend beginner to try this program by George Brown. He offer enormous tips to help you to build a sustainable online business through free traffic. It’s not free, but if you want to grow your business fast, it may be worth the time and cost as an investment to get it right from the beginning: Google Sniper Version 3.0.
Last but not least, this is how I start my online business and I hope you find these information useful. Online business is an easy business to start, do not over complicated it, follow the 3 core steps and you will see the beauty of online business.
