How to work from home: I have over 300 work from home online incomes business articles published online, 9 internet business ebooks published at Amazon/Kindle and hundreds of web pages dealing with every aspect of e-commerce. Frantic, desperate people often contact me for help. These people all deserve a straight answer.
I created this site to answer their most frequently asked questions:
feel your pain. You've bought every web site ebook, taken every small business course, and
fallen for every new GRQ (get rich quick) scheme that has come along (like I did),
but nothing seems to work for you. Take it easy.
It's part of our learning curve, nothing more. There's nothing wrong
with you, but...
.... 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.
In fact, we'll nail it down to a simple, very powerful and almost never used process epitomized in 4 letters: CTPM. With this simple system, we can create miracles.
But first, we must clear away some of the smoke.
Dear friend, my name is Octavien Remillard.
Why do we feel so unfulfilled at a time of incredible abundance? I had done "everything right", had been moderately successful, had a magnificent family, yet, I felt like the hole in the doughnut.
Why? What was wrong?
I had lost control of where my life was going.
I am a semi-retired electronics engineer living in North-Central Canada.
We have been married 38 years, have two sons, 2 daughters and 7
grandchildren and counting :-).
Something kept nudging me to learn how to do business on the internet. It has been a long journey, but a richly rewarding one.
Never before in the history of mankind has something like the internet put the most massive market that has ever existed at the disposal of anyone with an internet connection and all for free. Never before has the average person been given the opportunity to create a life of their dreams limited only by their ambition and drive.
A huge business can be built starting part time, risk free and dealing with anything you are passionate about.
I had tried just about every new product on the web in order to build a secure income for myself on the internet. We had 4 little mouths to feed. My wife and I were exhausted. She worked full time and I worked 2 jobs just to make ends meet.
I was so tired. The kids still remind me of the 2 times I fell asleep at the dining table with my face in a plate of spaghetti, dead sober. That doesn't just happen in Hollywood movies, folks.
Surfing the web one day, I stumbled upon an article by someone who was succeeding online because of a little used 4 part business model that he called the CTPM process.
The article stated that if you don't have the skills yet to
succeed online, given the shell
game of strategies and misinformation available, it likely had nothing to do with me. Right there, I felt better.
Much of the available material is too complex and confusing for anyone to understand.
I mulled over what he said in that article. I returned to it many times over the next few hours. I so desperately wanted to fire my bosses and nothing would please me more than for my wife to be home for the kids. The cost? The e-learning he had used cost less than a dollar per day, apparently.
We'd have to rework the budget a bit to handle it (Yes, I know, even the $30 was a challenge), but the benefits were too tempting:
We chewed over the options and finally decided to give this thing a try. Boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into! There is so much to learn!
On the other hand, I quickly felt that this outfit was rock solid and that they really knew this business. My wife and I had discussed about how we could get something to sell.Not a problem. We learned about affiliate marketing and another hurdle was cleared away. This would allow us to grow a business on anything we wanted to.
This web site is my way of sharing what I have learned with any of you
that are interested in taking control of your future. The site itself is
my passion, my way of expressing myself my way.
Thank you for dropping by!
