) Capture Page The first thing that you need to do is to create a capture page.
An effective capture page is a one page website that is warm, inviting, and gives your prospects a snapshot view of you and your business.
You want to peak their interest and invite them to enter their personal contact information (opt in) at the bottom of the page.
You should include a picture and personal audio or video message welcoming prospects to your site.
The idea here is to begin branding yourself online.
) Traffic Many online marketers are under the impression that all they need to be successful online is to have a website.
This is so untrue.
To be successful marketing online you need to generate traffic to get prospects to visit your site.
There are many ways to get highly targeted traffic to visit your site.
Some are free, while others are low cost options.
Some of the best free options for getting traffic to your site are article marketing, YouTube videos, blogging, or chatting on forums.
If you want to put some money into your online business, then Pay Per Click ad campaigns are the most bang for your buck.
) Autoresponders Once you have prospects visiting your site and opting in, you need to have an autoresponder in place that will send follow up emails to your prospects at times designated by you.
The money is in the follow up, so if you can keep your opportunity in people's minds on a daily basis, you will have a better chance of closing them.
) Mentor Or Team Dynamic You will have a lot of ups and downs in your online marketing career.
Especially when you're just starting out.
To wade through the victories and the defeats, it is to your advantage to have someone mentoring you or a group of people supporting you.
I would suggest that as you are just getting started, a mentor is probably the way to go.
It is helpful to have a lot of 1 on 1 attention in the beginning.
Then once you get rolling, you can survive on the support of your business team.
In closing, your dream of making money online is completely achievable.
There are great rewards that come with being your own boss and working from the comfort of your own home.
Although there will be challenging times, there is no better lifestyle to be had.
