"If You're The Kind Of Person Who Wants To Build A Web Site Online To Break Free From The Daily Work Grind And Finally Get What You Want In Life, Then...Discover The 4 Step Process That Will Set You Free!"
the two minutes it will take you to read this short article to the very
end could be the most rewarding time you spend this year. Unfortunately...
.... I have some bad news for you :-( Google does a lot of research and they have found that the average visitor to a website will return to it on average 7 times before buying anything even if your product or solution to their problem suits their needs exactly and your price is excellent.
Keep this information in mind no matter what kind of online business you eventually get into.
People just don't trust, but don't be afraid...
The good news is that there is an easy solution: email marketing. Visitors to sites are encouraged to leave their email addresses so they could be sent free stuff. The central idea here is that they are giving the website owner permission to visit them through their inbox! Done properly, this builds incredible trust very quickly.
This is a great way to get around the awful 7 visit barrier mentioned above.
Most websites have opt-in forms to get people to leave their email address in exchange for a freebie of some sort like a free ebook, report or video. Forms like this one are in common use. They worked for a while, but people quickly got tired of free reports, ebooks and so on.
The minute they see these little boxes, they scramble for the back button. A company named Leadpages changed the whole process.
They suggest that your freebie not be an ebook or report. Instead, they suggest a blueprint, resource or small set of digital tools that the average visitor might find useful. People want something useful and short.
People want instructions, how to and so on. The best example I have seen for something like this was a Youtube video on how to build a picnic table. The instructions were very good.
At the end, he asked people to swap their email address for a simple, 1 page PDF list of materials they would need to bring to the lumber yard to build their own picnic table. The idea worked great.
People want something simple like a plan, a blueprint or a simple list. This is what Leadpages teaches you how to do.
And now, for the real magic. Instead of a little plain, boring opt-in form like the one above, a company named LeadPages introduced a whole new ball game. If you visited a winter vacation website, would you be more tempted to fill in a plain little form like the one above or the Leadpages example below?
Uh-huh, I thought so. Remember that all these squeeze pages open in a full screen representation like this.
The next example was created by someone who has a website dealing with comic books. Beautiful, isn't it?
The one below is one of their top performers that gets a really good click through rate.
Anything can be changed with a couple of mouse clicks. Background images, styles of boxes, which information is asked for and so on.
This one is my personal favorite and gives me a great CTR. Give it a moment to load the video. You can change the video to anything you like. Imagine a gardening site with flowers waving in the wind, an aircraft site with airplanes floating above the clouds or ... well.. you get the idea.
Most people are not aware of the 7 visitor phenomenon that Google found and it kills their dream of independence and freedom. They work and work to build a great site, they get traffic and little money comes in because they are not aware of and dealing with that 7 visit phenomenon.
Opt-ins are a brilliant and fun way to build trust and Leadpages offer the best in cutting edge squeeze page technology for about a dollar a day.
By the way, would you like to see more of what Leadpages can do to help you achieve your dreams like they did for me? The best way for me was to sign up for one of their 2 free weekly live webinars. You can reserve your spot here.
NOTE: What I liked the most is that you don't have to be one of their customers to gain immense benefit from what they teach.
STOP and imagine what it would feel like to never again have to leave the house to earn your living. Ever.
All successful internet business are built around the following 4 premises:
ALL of the best sites are build around this CTPM (content, traffic, presell and monetization) concept. ALL of them.
Some places offer you free or almost free site building, but teach you nothing about what the search engines are looking for. They urge you to "buy traffic" and direct them to your poorly built site.
It doesn't work, boys and girls. After a very short while, you find that the few people that do visit your site are not buyers. Very quickly, you get tired and frustrated at throwing money away on paid traffic and the "next great guaranteed tool" these web hosters want to sell you.
You quickly shut it down and start licking your financial wounds. You will likely say something like, "This internet stuff doesn't work!"
Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
The internet is the river of gold. The thing is that you have to know where to dip your bucket.
Find out if doing business this way is for you. Get your answer at my CTPM/SBI Question page.
Where to begin?
First, the site concept. What turns you on, what do you love to do as a hobby? Why? Because this is supposed to be fun. If you enjoy what you are doing, you will still enjoy writing and researching it 20 years from now. Maybe it's something that is a real problem for you and you have a solution.
What's the first thing you need? A site concept. You don't want to build a site on a theme that nobody is searching for. The screen shot below illustrates.
Let's say that snoring has been a problem for you or someone dear to you. You have a solution and you want to build a site to help people suffering from it.
Look at the screen shot below:
Look at the first column called the Value Demand column. It shows how many global searches for each term. If you build your site around the bottom term, "solution for snoring", You'd have a little over 100 people a month searching using that term.
On the other hand, if you based your site on the top term, "snoring stop", your have almost 25,000 potential customers."Stop snoring" would do just as well. The search engines are pretty smart.
Can you see where research is a make it or break it endeavor?
This is the bedrock foundation for the Content, Traffic, Presell and Monetization SBI process. I'm sure you've got them, so take your questions to my Site Concept/SBI Question page.
I hope you get the idea now that if you really want to build something solid and profitable for yourself, there is a lot more involved than the smoke and mirrors of the Get Rich Quick crowd.
Let's go through a typical successful web transaction.
Peg has a little Chihuahua dog and she wants the best possible grooming brush for her little darling. She enters the term "Chihuahua brush" in the search box and clicks enter.
The search engine produces the best 10 results on her screen. You've built your Chihuahua site properly and your Chihuahua site is 1 of the 10. She likes the description of your site and clicks on the link.
She is taken to your site and is floored by the variety of quality information you offer her.
You have sections on:
The list goes on and on. She feels she has stumbled on Chihuahua heaven!
She right away goes to the Chihuahua grooming section and learns all kinds of things about her dog that she hadn't thought about before. But why not, you are the expert site on Chihuahuas!
She ponders and reads and finally decides on the brush she wants. Before leaving, she reads about the car safety harnesses, decides she definitely has to have one for her little pooch and buys one.
She notices she has spent half an hour on your site and she has to move along with her day. She bookmarks your site, gives her email address so you can send her monthly Chihuahua newsletter and leaves.
Perfect. She started looking for something, you offered her exactly what she was looking for plus she leaves knowing that she'll be back. Your site is the go-to place for anything to do with her beloved Chihuahua.
Have you noticed that you had nothing to do during this transaction? Maybe you were at the beach or a kid's school concert. Your online website runs all by itself. The order taking and shipping is frequently done by someone whom you are an affiliate for.
Are you getting the feeling that this is something you can do with the proper tools? How much fun would it be to research and build a site on something you love?
And the process works whether you built a site about a favorite fishing area or nervous bladders. The choice is totally yours. A website can take on many forms and will succeed as long as it follows the simple blueprint.
