How To Simplify Your Online Marketing For Our Home Business | Prospecting

When talking about simplifying your online marketing for your home business we are working towards finding the daily activities that will get you the best results for your Investment of time and money.

Here is the basic formula:

Your WHY - What do you want form your business? 
Example: Time With Family / Freedom ( no job)

What will it take to achieve that goal? 

Example: 6 Figure income - $100,000.00 a year income

What is the price and your Commission on your product or service you sell?


Example: Sells for $100 and I get 50%  of the sale.

How many sales do you need each day to hit your long term goal? 
Example: $100,000.00  / 365 = $275 in sales / $50 Commission = 5.5 sales per day

What is your closing ratio?

How many people need to see your solution each day to get 5.5 sales? (The average for online marketing runs about 1% - 3%)

So to get 5.5 sales per day we need a lot of eye balls on your solution. To hit 5,5 sale at the conservative 1% closing ratio you will need 550 people per day, 365 days per year to see the material!!

Final Question - HOW DO WE DO THAT?







Stay tuned as we start to explore the simple tools you will need to increase your traffic and do the follow up needed to hit these goals.

Little hint to what's to come .. Email list - 50,000 names on your list with a 10% open rate  = 5000 views of your email ...with a 1% click through rate  = 500 views of your solution!

(I currently have been averaging around 11% open rate but the click through is low around .05% so what's needed? Better Content, Transition and Call to action ...>> Which is taught here.)

Happy Selling!

How To Simplify Online Marketing For Your Home Business

Dealing with the Elephant in the room... What Do I need To Do First?

If you have never worked in sales and marketing this is a HUGE question and as mentioned in other blog posts can lead to a lot of great new marketers quitting before they even have a shot to make there first dollar.

So as this can be considered the elephant in the room let's ask this question ...How do you eat an elephant?

Answer: One Bite At A Time!

Let's get started....

#1)  The first question you need to ask yourself is this ... What do yo want out of your business?

A) Money?
B) Life Style?
C) Travel?
D) New Home?
E) Fire The Boss?
F) Time with the family?

Be real... What do you really want?

Now... as emotional as some of those decisions can be they do not happen with out the $$'s so the next question is ...How much do you need to make to accomplish those goals?

Yearly - $100,000.00?

Most new entrepreneurs tend to feel that a 6 figure income is the first goal or at least the long term goal so for sake of examples we will start there.

Fact:  If you want to make $100,000.00 next year you need to break it down (one bite at a time) ... Over 12 months - 52 weeks - 365 days of the year. 

Remember the Internet is open 24 hours a day so you could break it down to 8760 hours per year ,,, But that can get into micro managing and we want to stay simple so let's talk 40 hrs a week.

For you to make a 6 figure income next year we also need to know what are you wanting to sell and how much profit will you make from it?

Example: If you want to be an affiliate for a company or product that only pays a 25% commission we have a lot of work to do.

That means if the product sells for $100 you are only making $25 per sale ...SO ...If my math is correct you would need ...well a lot of sales. Something like 4000 over the course of the year at $100 per sale which works out to 11 sales per day.

Now what? Well the next step is simply this....If the current products you are selling are not going to be very profitable then we may need to find a product that pays more!
...or work in a system with up-sales above and beyond the basic product line.  

There are a lot of  systems out there promoting 100% commissions and yes many of them are valid but you will need to make a bigger front end investment. Most if not all will require you to purchase a bigger monthly membership or an annual membership with continued up sells to a premium product.

Currently an annual membership with EMP will get you 100% commission with the very popular AMF (Attraction Marketing Formula) product allowing you to be more strategic with your goal setting. Once you have customers with in this system they will have the option to upgrade to premium products like the 10 Minute Traffic Machine. 

In the world of Online Marketing you are basically faced with a lot choices ... you know your WHY but now we have to choose carefully the HOW because you need to commit to it ...one platform and one strategy for the next 6 months.  Period. No excuses. ...Just do it!

We will talk more about system strategies in the next post. For now I just want you to focus on the WHY... Put a number ($$$) to that goal and break it down. How many sales a day do you need to hit your goals?

As always our primary action plan is to be engaged in sales activities through out the day ... Prospecting...Presenting and Asking for the business ( Call to Action). That is what makes the money....not all this rah rah stuff to learn how to SEO your FB page. ...Pffft ...who cares. It's social media...share it!

Happy Selling!

How To Get Started With Online Marketing For Your Home Business

Step 1: Find your niche so you can focus.

When you figure out what your specialty is then you can start to promote to the people that are working on the same type of things you are. For me it's Blogging and then driving traffic to those blog posts via Social Media, Email and Advertising.

For you it may be video or some form of paid advertising.

Ask yourself these questions...

  • Are you just with a program to make money as an affiliate? 
  • Do you have your own website or Blog that goes back to your affiliate site? 
  • Are you selling homemade products? 
  • Are you someone that is selling from his/her own store or mall? 

There are so many different things to promote and you want to reach your target audience to get the results that you are seeking.

Step 2: Make a plan and work the plan!


If you are anything like me you only have a limited amount of time each day to operate your business so you need a definitive goal... What is the purpose of your activity each day. That then sets the tone for the strategy you will want to use.

I personally like to create short but informative blog posts and then share that across social media with the ultimate goal of people opting into my email lists for even more detailed information from the platforms I promote...which normally is EMP.

To help with driving the traffic to your info outline your tasks daily using a day timer, scheduling tools like Hootsuite  or mobile apps and calender's work great also.  

Track and schedule your posts and ads or emails to your lists.  If you do not have an email auto-responder to help with your email list AWEBER is a great place to start ...Get the first month for only $1!

In a nutshell plan your time for every task and get the most important done early when you are full of energy. Take breaks so you can re-evaluate what you are doing and be more receptive to tasks still to be done.

Side Note: Don't fall into the trap of "getting ready to get ready" thinking you need everything in place before you move forward. Start creating your content or sharing your products ASAP! As you learn and grow organization will set you above the crowd because you will accomplish more.

The #1 hard and fast rule I want to resonate with anybody I work with in the world of online marketing is simply this ... Make sure you are taking daily action steps that accomplish your primary goal.

In most cases the primary goal is to sell something to make some money.  ...HOWEVER ... realistically we know there are steps to that process and putting people into a sales funnel ( getting leads in your target market) or "prospecting" via what ever method you prefer, is really the #1 daily goal.

So to get started with online marketing for your home business let me finish by asking this question...

How many people, in your target market, saw your information today? ...if you do not know or if you are not getting any activity (5 or more daily leads) then we need to work on changing your daily activities.

Agreed?

Awesome!

Let's get busy and and you can get started by working with me directly. Take the first step in that direction by joining my private email list ... GO HERE!

Gotta run! Happy Selling!

What is Online Marketing and why it works?

Marketing you products or service online has several different platforms to work from and because there are so many options is can be very confusing to know what works best.

I don't have enough time to hit all the options but below we have laid out the top three with there "official" definitions...then I will give you my thoughts as well

Affiliate Marketing:
 is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate'own marketing efforts.

Internet marketing
 or online marketing: Refers to advertising and marketing efforts that use the Web and email to drive direct sales via electronic commerce, in addition to sales leads from Web sites or emails

Network M
arketing A strategy in which sales representatives of a company recruit other salespeople and earn commissions on their own sales and on the sales made by their team: Use your personal relationships to be successful in network marketing. Expand. Also called multilevel marketing.

Now how do we break this down to know what will work for you...

First and for most we must understand that when we start working in one or multiple platforms the mindset needs to change.

We must start thinking like business owners and start to develop the habits that successful business owners have.

Most people entering the world of marketing have never done this style of work before and even some that have are still stuck in what I call a "consumer" mind set.  That mindset will keep you broke or at least not able to move forward from your current situation whatever it is.


A great book to consider reading is simply called >>> "the Starters Mindset Pocket Guide"



As with all things changing your mindset does not happen over night but the sooner  you can start working on it you whole world will open up to the various sales possibilities. Along with that the training's or webinars you attend will start to make a lot more since!


Now as far as the actual marketing platform that is right for you you need to think about how you like to be buy things yourself.


Do you prefer a more direct approach typically as you would find in a Network Marketing / Direct sales system where you may attend meetings and or set appointments to demo the products ...much like a makeup company and even some of the health and wellness companies typically do?


Or... do you prefer to research and buy items item online after watching a good video or reading about it on a sales page or blog?


Ether way is fine some people just need to identify there personalitiy traits and match that up with the various opportunities. I personally do not like to atttend live events, home meetings and so forth so I work more in the "affiliate marketing" platform with Blogs and Social Media.


Here is the key to understand...or at least how I see all of this. 


Network Marketing and Affiliate Marketing are both great at selling products ... Online Marketing is the training system that ties it all together IF you are going to use the Internet as your primary lead source!


You will also sell a lot of info products through online marketing but more importantly you help provide the direction the Affiliate marketers and Network Marketers need to learn from.


So if you like coaching, training, teaching and or maybe have a management back ground Online Marketing is a great place for you!


Here is where a lot of people get fowled up ...


Be committed to your business system. If it is Network Marketing stay true to your company. If it is Affiliate marketing stay true to your mentor or platform. Many people get what's called "shiny object syndrome" and try to get wealthy in multiple platforms...that does not work.  To many things going at once are distracting, frustrating and overwhelming.


If you are generating leads for your Network Marketing company and want to learn how to do it better using online resources grab " The Attraction Marketing Bootcamp"  ... and then share it with your down-line so they can learn as well .


No need to recruit to these online marketing companies ... just share the training's and if somebody buys a membership or product so be it. ..YOU made extra money!


My point here is let the system work for you.


As talked about in an earlier post ..."How To Start A Home Business Online With A Small Budget" ... you do not need to buy all the "stuff" offered. YOU just need to point people in the wright direction to provide a solution to there problem.


Make since?

How To Make Money Online with CPA

If you're goal is to make money online, one of the easiest ways to get started is by simply emulating someone who has already experienced the same kind of success you want, and then copy them.

This model can be applied to any business. There is no reason to try and re-invent the wheel from scratch when you can follow someone else's proven path to success.

In the beginning most people are in the "Information Mode" where they are learning how to get going in the right direction in the correct niche with profit pulling products.
 
However, if you do not use this information to take action, you will never find your path to successful online income. In most cases, you will first experience "Information Overload" causing you to give up and this is the exact reason why most people fail to make any money online. Therefore, to quickly get past this initial hurdle, you will need a step-by-step system that maps out a realistic idea of exactly what has to be done.

YOU CAN GET STARTED HERE!

Another great way to get started is by working with a mentor or a personal success coach. This can be the quickest and easiest path to reaching your personal income goals.

A personal coach will easily identify when you are failing before you can. They have been down that exact same road time and time again before you, and they know how to avoid the bumps and hurdles that lie ahead. This is very important if you want to learn how to effectively make money online fast. Basically, why should you struggle when someone else can make your life much easier?

At this point, you want to get your business in profit as soon as possible and you will quickly realize that following a coach or mentor will get you there more quickly. Now, all you need to do is select a good mentor or coach that has achieved the same kind of success you are looking for.

They will provide you with the required steps and your primary job is to simply follow those steps. One difficult hurdle you will encounter is to follow the steps without distraction. You will find many people and/or programs that promise you the easiest and fastest way, but if you jump around from coach to coach, you're only going to slow down your progress.

Check out the following link in this article to learn from an experienced coach that has been down this exact road and overcome all the obstacles in CPA affiliate marketing. This complete system will dramatically shorten the painful learning curve that comes with learning how to make money online using CPA affiliate marketing.
