How To Build A Successful Online Business

Comments Off

So how do you build a successful business online, and how do you make the most money in the fastest way possible?

Successful Online BusinessIf you listen to some internet marketing gurus, you might get taught that the fastest way is to build an email list of targeted subscribers.

There is nothing wrong with this strategy, in fact it’s a proven business model that has made many people millionaires, it’s just a matter of doing it in the right way, and it’s not easy, no matter what anyone says.

In the early days of the internet, it was easy to dominate a niche, and to get targeted clicks for a cent each, from ads, solo ads to other people’s lists, and other things.

It’s no longer that easy, as there is a lot more competition, and so the average targeted click is now worth about twenty cents to a dollar, or even more.

What people often find with building a list is that they have to pay a lot of money in advertising and promotion to build it quickly enough to just pay for the Aweber monthly fee, website hosting and the domain name and all of that.

I’m not a big fan of spending thousands of dollars before you even know if you’re going to make a return on your investment, because I never had thousands of dollars to risk.

How To Build A List Without Risking Your House

You can try doing SEO on a squeeze page or sales page, but SEO usually requires you have a full website with a blog and many pages of high quality content on your site, and that you have back links pointed back at your site from other domains.

I just had my subscriber form in a sidebar widget on this site, and as you can see, it’s no longer there, because I only got fifty subscribers.

The problem I had was that it was too slow for me, I didn’t have the money to spend on a paid advertising campaign that I suspected wouldn’t make a profit, and I didn’t like what I had to do to make money out of my list.

For example, I could either tell people over and over again to contact me for one or other of my many services, or I could send them out my blog posts, or I could promote other people’s stuff.

When you put Clickbank products in your emails to your list, you kind of know that you’ve run out of anything quality to send them.

You can send out affiliate links like Aweber clicks or WSOs from the Warrior Forum, or you could try Amazon products if you’re in that niche, or maybe sell solo ads, or CPA offers.

Why I Stopped Building A List And Started Doing Other Things

For me, I felt like a sell out doing any of those things, and it didn’t make me look like I had integrity, and I didn’t feel like I had integrity, selling products that I’ve never tried.

They could be scams, rip offs, or just really annoying, and I wouldn’t have the time or money to test them all out, and so couldn’t be sure.

My friend is just about to start building his list, and he has a bit better idea, he’s got a front end product worth two hundred dollars but he’s selling it for twenty, and it’s really worth the price.

He’s got this WordPress theme that allow you to make all sorts of sales pages and squeeze pages and e-books that explain how to do everything, and it all seems good in theory.

You sell a good product to people, and create a buyer’s list, making back enough money to cover the immediate costs of buying traffic.

The thing is, does it work in practice? Well, stay tuned to this blog to find out the answer.

You can subscribe to my RSS feed, or you can find it if you like one or more of my Facebook pages, follow me on Twitter, (from the sidebar), or just come back to the site in a week or a month.

By the time you read this, it could be years later, so why not just send me an email and ask me how I can help you build a list, a social following, Google rankings, and all the thing you need to create a successful online business.

My email address is in the sidebar, I personally find it easier talking to people one on one through email, rather than sending out automated messages. Get in touch, I can help you with all of these things and more.
