If you are deadly serious about setting yourself free, if you would be happy doing it with no risk in your spare time and obviously you want to use a proven formula for success, then reading this page to the very bottom will be the most profitable 2 minutes you are going to spend this year.
Let's start clearing away the smoke.
Clearly you want to be free.
Obviously there is much you don’t know, and certainly you have many questions. Apparently
you are very interested in realizing your dreams because you are still here
reading, but you want to go softly, gently and carefully, don’t you? You are
afraid and nervous.
I must confess, I felt the same way. Sports coaches call it “the paralysis of analysis”.
You are ready for success and you are ready to work hard, but maybe this isn’t for you. Dot pin too. Ask your questions. Talk to someone who has been where you are, but who took that first, tentative, tiny baby step into the unknown.Remember this: Everyone in my information center has built and is running at least one SBI online business of his or her own. It's a condition of employment.
.... 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.
All successful online businesses share this common business model (No exceptions):
Step 1. You create quality content on your website about something you love dearly like a hobby or your life’s passion.
Step 2. This creates internet traffic super magnets that attract "hair on fire", laser targeted visitors.
Step 3. Your information rich pages will presell your visitors on the idea that you are the authority site for their search so they won't think about going anywhere else.
Step 4. You send them through the magic of affiliate marketing to where they can buy their solution through you. (Monetization)
As you start reading this article, you begin to feel that you have come home. Relax. There is no pressure here, no empty glamor and glitter. Just good, solid information. What you do with it, is up to you.
Why are you here right now?
...Watch this very short video right now. It sums up what you can accomplish for yourself using the Site Build It suite of tools and their business blueprint. How much does it cost? A buck a day. The results?*
* Does Site Build It work? You're looking at a Site Build It site right now. This site is one of my Site Build It sites. It's main search term is 'home online incomes'. It is ranked #1 at Google for that search term against 464,000,000 competitors! It works.
First, recognize the big difference between a regular, bricks and mortar business and an online business. This knowledge will make all the difference as you develop your own work from home online income strategy.
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".
What could be better than to make your living from home? What a blessing this is for women who want to become a work at home mom, for example. What you will find, however, is that it is not as easy as some make it out to be. People don't trust websites and are very leery of giving out their credit card information, no matter how many safeguards are in place. They don't trust. Period.
FACT! The average person on the interrnet visits a website 7 times on average before buying. What ae the chances that this will happen? A snowball's chance in a very hot place.
Are all the stories of online success a lie, then? No, there is an easy and fun way to get around the trust issue.
First, you have to realize that the internet is all about information. Whether people are looking for a cheese recipe for dinner tonight, whether there are any tickets to the football game on the weekend or how to cure zits naturally, people are looking for information that a well constructed Site Build It site will furnish. These are called infopreneur sites and are the easiest and safest ways to build an online income
With a little research, you will find that there is no shortage of business ideas. If you have built a site on climbing roses, let's say, you will have all kinds of information on that subject. If someone searches for information on rose soil diseases, you will have that subject well coverred on your site and Google will bring people looking for that information to you. It's up to you to make sure your information is accurate and free.
That's why it is so important for you to build a site(s) on a subject you love or would like to learn a lot about. Information is power. It is also money in your pocket. The internet is all about information. Don't break the rules and you will succeed. How do you make money? I will get to that in a minute.
It is extremely important for you to research your site theme closely. Here is a quick example.
Let's say you love little dogs and you would dearly love to build a high quality information site on Chihuahua dogs. What theme keyword should you use? It would seem common sense that you could name your site something like "information on chihuahuas.com" or something similar.
Using my Site Build It keyword research tool, I come up with the following:
Look at the value demand column. Only about 26 people world wide search for that term every month. If you named your site "information on Chihuahuas", you'd get virtually no traffic.
Look at the top of the value demand column. The plain old search term "chihuahuas" gets 70,263 searches per month worldwide. What are the chances that if you built your dog site around that keyword, you'd be melting servers with traffic? It's hard to imagine how important a couple of simple words can be to your Site Build It site's success.
Can you see why basic research is so critical?
Email marketing enables you to work around that 7 visit barrier I mentioned above. Using the Chihuahua example I used before, your Chihuahua site would have good information on the little dogs. You would cover everything from Chihuahua diseases, proper grooming, nutrition requirements, Chihuahua training, Chihuahua clothes and so on.
Your keyword research would tell you that a good number of people search for Chihuahua names. Your site would have a section on names. At the same time, they would notice all the other information on Chihuahuas you offer. They probably don't trust you enough to buy from you yet, but they will download your free dog names list.
You appear to be knowledgeable about Chihuahuas. You offer them the opportunity to sign up for your free newsletter. It will cover any new information on Chihuahuas, the lastest clothes the celebrities are dressing their dogs in and so on.
You have shown you are knowledgeable. A certain percentage of your visitors will leave their email address before leaving with their free list of dog names. You are in!
Instead of trying somehow to drag them back to your Site Build It website 7 times in the hopes that they will buy something, you now have their permission to visit them in their inbox every week or month or whatever frequency you decide to send newsletters.
In no time, they will get used to receiving your information rich newsletters. Talk about the magic you can accomplish with the best website tools!
If you really love your subject and it shows, they will frequently look forward to receiving your newsletter. After a few of these letters, their sales resistance is way down whether your site is on little dogs or woodworking.
When you come up with something truly worthwhile for them to look at to buy, you put it into your newsletter. For example, "I have just found a new GPS collar that makes sure your little Chihuahua is never more than a few computer keystrokes away in case he gets lost and CLICK HERE for more information. I highly recommend this collar."
The recommendation is a good one, the product information is on a page on your website and you are an affiliate for the GPS collar company. It's all good. They have learned to trust you, you never recommend something junky and they will buy over and over again.
Once you know your way around the internet, you can learn to set up paid ad campaigns that can add a lot of traaffic to your pages. This is risky business, so don't try it until you really know your stuff!
Where does the money come from? You are an affiliate for the GPS company. If they make a sale from your referral, you get a commission. It is the simplest way to start any business on the internet. There are other things you have to learn like web site promotion, but that's the basics.
Any decent company has an affiliate program. To name just a few: Amazon, Walmart, Maytag, Evinrude and so forth. There is never any charge for becoming an affiliate and you can sell anything they sell. You can be set up in any business you want in minutes. There is nothing to buy, no investment in anything and you can even use your social networking skills to increase your business.
The 7 visit barrier has come crashing down and email marketing works like magic whether you have a site on vintage Barbie dolls, cement mixers, jet aircraft or patterns for kids' clothes. Email maketing works. Period. 385/824
The first thing you should decide upon is how often you will send information out and the type of email you will send out. Don't get too excited about getting this just right in the beginning. Decide on maybe sending out an email a month and use that as a starting point.
This is enough to get you started. You may eventually end up with a 1000 word email once a week if that is what your subscribers seem to prefer. If they are really rabid about the subject matter and your enthousiasm for the subject is obvious, you've just stumbled upon a gold mine.
People will drool over your emails and buy frequently because when you build your own website using the Site Build It email system, it has allowed them to develop a deep trust in you, your enthusiasm is contagious and you are an authority in their eyes. You will become a master of how to sell online. Click-click-caching!
Please keep in mind that this can be used with any number of business opportunities and that this in no way is dishonest, immoral or illegal. A good example might be about a car mechanic.
If you often bump into your local small repair shop mechanic and he is never cheap with his car advice, who are you going to get to fix your car? You're going to the one who obviously enjoys the repair of cars and is not afraid to pass along free information.
The first thing is to decide on your beginning schedule of send-outs. You won't get anyone to sign up if you are vague in your description of how often you will email. Like I stated above, pick something reasonable and use that for starters.
Keep your informaation on a general baseline. Let your readerss get used to the idea that you don't come forward in great big fancy words as if you are trying to impresss them with your expertice.
Go gently. Treaad softly. Rspect all your subscribers and you will win their love, affection and credit card numbers.
As time goes by, you might want to start a separate email listing for newbies so that you can keep the language low key as you get them used to your style and then, later, they can sign up for your advanced emails.
Another great way to build specialty lists is to give them questionnaires. For example, if you had a site on acne treatments, you would have questions breaking down your readers by gender, age, physical build and so on.
There are many fun ways to develope these lists and they all mean money to you. This does not mean that you ar building these lists just for profit. If you love the subject of your site, you will love reasearching it deeply and writing about your discoveries and so forth.
If you are a lawyer and you have taken to build your Site Builder Site carefully, a monthly newsletter to local people explaining the latests laws, what to be careful about when estate planning and so forth would guarantee that your readers would put you at the top of their phone list when they need a lawyer.
This strategy applies no matter what your site concept is about.There are very successful sites on everything from unusual kids' birthday parties, asphalt repair, Vegan cooking and multimillion dollar medical imaging equipment.
WARNING! Make sure that you don't recomment too oftern in your emails. People will quickly grasp that you are abusing the trust built up by the emails and they will dump you quickly. Be real, honest and friendly and you will prosper.
A good comparison would be a small town store or the mechanic I mentioned above. 478/1300

Automateed email marketing involves a called an autoresponders. What this involves is sending out preprogramed emails at a set time scheduled by you. The beauty of autoresponders is that they send out the right email to the right people at the right time. This is also know as web traffic marketing.
There are bulk email services, but stay away from them. They are like the junk mail producers of the internet.
For example, if you offerred a 10 day Site build It course, you would likely send one lesson out a day. You don't want a new person on your list to get the same lessaon that someone on day 7 is getting. Using social media effectively, this can catch on like wildfire in small, highly focused sub niches.
Autoresponders work like this: Bill signs up for the course on Monday and gets his first lesson right away. The next day, Joan signs up and gets her first lesson right away. Bill will get lesson 2 on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Ann signs up for the course and gets lesson 1 right away, Bill gets lesson 3 on Wednesday and Joan will get her lesson 2 on that day.
It's a beautiful way to conduct bussiness in a orderly manner and, once set up, you don't have to do anything else to keep your course going. A good autoresponder service like Aweber costs about 20 dollars a month. Don't worry, you can do without on to start and there is no rush to learn how to use one.
The software package I use has an ezine feature built in. The ezine capability, web hosting, keyword research like the Chihuahua keyword phrase research in the box above and dozens of other critical tools are all included for a dollar a day. 227/1529
As I mentioned above, site build it there is a series of tasks you should do before getting started building your business email lists and they all contribute to your email marketing success. All off the tools I mentioned above are crucial to your marketing success.
The email marketing tools you will need are the same ones as you use to start planning your site. The only different tool you use with email marketing is the autoresponder or ezine feature. If you build your site around something you don't really care about, you will quickly run out of things to say in your emails.
Also, your keyword tool like the Chihuahua keyword image above will keep giving you plenty of highly relevant words and phrases that are highly relevant to your subject.
One thing to be very careful of when you are witing for your site and in your emails is that you either write the text yourself or hire it out. It doesn't have to be Pulitzer prize winning material, but it has to be original content whetheer you wrote it yourself or someone wrote it for you.
The search engines frown on duplicaate content and your traffic will suffer greatly if you use some of the stuff that's sold or given away free on the web. Web traffic marketing is the bread and butter of your business and copying someone else's writing will put a big dint in your prosperity.
