How To "Build Web Site" Success:
Certainly, if you want to build a web site that will earn you consistent money, obviously you want one that you can build risk free and if you want to build one you can absolutely work on part time, then reading this short article to the very end may well be the most profitable 2 minutes you spend this year.
ALL successful web sites revolve around a 4 step process:
.... 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.
First, realize that there is an enormous difference between a
regular, bricks and mortar business and an online ecommerce business. An online business means that there no risks for you to take and you progress only as fast as you want. (Can we say part time, here?)
Offline, it's all about "location, location, location." Put your new business where people crowd by... and you're all set. Get your cash register ready!
Online, entrepreneurs fail to grasp the fundamental reality of how people use the web. No one just "passes by". Everyone is searching for "information, information, information".
You will love the CTPM process described above because of its common sense simplicity that will set you free! The knowledge you picked up above blends in perfectly with it.
The first thing to keep in mind is that you should take your time with the proper tools to choose a web site concept that you will love to work with for years. For example, it you had built a site on pet rocks (remember the craze?), how much business would you have now?
On the other hand, if you had built a site all those years ago about radio controlled airplanes if that is your passion, you would still have lots of interested visitors and you would love researching and writing about all the new developments.
See the difference? I hope you are getting excited! This process can have you making a great living for the rest of your life doing something you love to do.
How sweet is that :-)
Is it Get Rich Overnight? No. It requires work, but anything worthwhile requires effort, doesn't it" The rewards are priceless, however.
What kind of tools am I talking about?
Lets say you love gardening, but you've always had a special place in your garden and you are investigation what title you would give your site. The screenshot below shows a quick search I did on my Brainstorming tool for the term "compost"
Look at the first column called Value Demand.
It shows the monthly world wide search terms for the keyword you enter.
If you were thinking of building your site around "indoor composters", you'd be lucky to get 13 visitors a month. On the other hand, if your site was build around the general theme of "composter", you'd have a good chance at netting the lion's share of the almost 13,000 searches per month.
It is not rocket science, but without the proper tools and research, you can waste months and months of work developing a site that gets no traffic. No traffic, no sales and thus no income.
Are starting to get the feeling that this is something you obviously can do, that something like this can eventually change your life?
Never has been easier to get set up in business as it is today. In the old days, you needed bank loans and buildings and stock and so forth. Now, you don't need any of that.
It is called affiliate marketing. In effect, money need be the slightest concern you have as you build your business. Most companies now have something called affiliate programs.
What this involves is for you to sign up with any company you like. It is always free and you end up as a commission sales person for as many firms as you like.
If you were building a web site on small airplanes, you could become an affiliate for airplane manufacturers, airplane engine companies, airplane tires and so forth.
Following the CTPM process mentioned above, you'd have many sections on your site. On your engines pages, you could discuss maintenance, special oils to use in very cold weather, the best batteries to use and so on.
The search engines send you free traffic, you fulfill whatever need the visitor had as they arrived and offer solutions hey can by, solutions you either ship yourself of you are an affiliate for. If they buy your recommendation, you get paid a commission.
If you are not sure about this affiliate thing, go to Amazon and sign up as an affiliate for them. They have millions of things for you to sell and you can't beat them for integrity and so forth.
Not mention that you can brag that you are affiliated with Amazon!
With the proper help and tools, you can:
Eventually get oodles of free traffic.
You can make a beautiful life for yourself doing something you love. This really is what dreams are made of.
There is no risk. With affiliate marketing, you can build a site on anything you love. You will have nothing to buy, no employee headaches, no shipping, no returns worries and you never have to deal with customer issues. Those are all handled by the companies you represent.
