How To Sell Online: I have over 300
work from home online income 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. This page was created to
answer the most frequently asked questions and I have included a large library of free ebooks that I view as the best on the web.
.... 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.
The questions I am most often asked are:
If you dream of building a rock solid online business built around something you dearly love, that requires no risk, can operate by itself, that you can build in your spare time and in which you are willing to invest a dollar a day, then the few minutes you spend reading this article to the very end will be the most profitable time you spend this year.

An online business is affordable, flexible, and convenient. You can work
at your Web site and business when you like, at the speed that suits
you, and still put the all-important needs of your family first. In
other words, you can take your family to work with you!
Learn from the experiences and advice of Elizabeth, Cate, Jennifer and Erin, and several other successful WAHMs, in WAHM-IT!, The Masters Course. They are busy moms just like you and they know what it's like.
So they have taken the time to tell you everything of how they ended up being able to work from home. And they do it in simple, short practical terms, building from the ground up.

|Part 3 of this work from home library is: the Local Business Masters Course where you help local businesses get onto the web.|
There is a huge untapped market, waiting for assistance... your assistance.
Are you an:
The Local Business Masters Course is for you! Sharon Odom Fling, a highly respected local business marketing expert, shows you how to capture the local market, and differentiate yourself from the competition.
The 5 figure day pdf shows how to create local buzz about you, as satisfied clients tell other people about the Webmaster who produces results... targeted traffic and profits... over and over again, for any type of business.
The Masters Course gets you into the mindset of local
business owners first, an essential starting point, and then outlines a range
of services you can provide to grow their businesses. It also covers how to
connect and market to this busy and usually novice-to-the-Net target group.
|Part 4 of this work from home library is: the Make Your Price Sell Course where you learn pricing principles and practices.|
No more guessing or relying on a "gut feeling." No more swirling around a bunch of data and pulling out the magic number. No more nagging uncertainty.
You can now price with confidence and sureness (without hiring an expensive consultant!)...
"Make Your Price Sell!, The Masters Course" shows you how to maximize profit for both you... and your customers! It also has many great tips on how to sell online!
Yes, your prospective customers must feel that they will personally profit by buying your product or service. In other words, they must feel that the value you offer equals or exceeds the cost. If they don't, credit cards remain securely tucked away in their wallets.
That's why it's critical that you determine the "Perfect Price"...
|Part 5 of this work from home library is: the Netwriting Masters Course where you learn how to write on your site.|
Most small businesses fail on the Net because they prepare to sell and collect money, before they have provided what their visitors are searching for... information. These small business owners build a Web site to sell and somehow figure that traffic will just show up and be willing to buy or hire immediately.
Wrong thinking... wrong process... no results! It's like pushing a string. You have to pull instead... pull targeted visitors into your site, PREsell them... then, and only then, sell. Learn properly how to sell online.
Let's boil it down to four simple steps...
That advice might be going against the advice of a lot of the companies selling software, hosting and so on. Just buy their product and you'll be choosing the color of your jet in no time.
Building an online business even with the 5 figure day pdf requires patience, work and knowledge about how to sell online. You could work for months on a site and end up with nothing. Been there, done that.
What you need up front is a business website builder software package that not only gives you numbers, code and so forth, but knowledge on how to sell online also. Call it training, education or whatever you want to call it. You have to learn first hand how buisness is done on the internet.
It's a different ballgame than setting up your own shop on the street. On the other hand, built properly, an online business runs on autopilot so it does not require the minute by minute attention that the street business requires.
May I suggest that your first step in getting that internet education is to sign up for my free ecourse. That will give you the basics of how to sell online. Then, come back to this page (bookmark it right now!) and down load the ebooks listed all over this page. Pick and choose. Personnally, I recomment the affiliate Masters Course for starters.
It will show you how to start your business with no product of your own to sell. It's a great way to start and it includes a lot of excellent information on what a great business website builder software must do for you.

|Part 7 of this work from home library: is the Net Auctions Masters Course where you learn how to work for yourself, not the online auction place.|
A Net Auction business is full of opportunity for those who want -- and know how to sell online -- to take advantage of it. No, you won't get rich overnight. And we hope you are not looking for such a "rich-quick" opportunity because that is the sure road to disappointment.

|Part 8 of this work from home library: is the Make Your Knowledge Sell Master Book. What do you know that you could possibly sell?|
Online home businesses can take the most unusual twists and turns. Build on something you love to do and you will direct it to what you know is best in that particular subject. It could be a herb, a paint type, a new antennae, anything.
You might be asking, "What knowledge could I possibly have to sell?"
If you've been a bus driver all your life, but you have a passion for roses, you could easily turn that passion into an ebusiness.
You say that you've never worked outside the nhome. You've spent your whole life caring for two sick and elderly parents. What could you possibly have that could be useful to others? You've an expert i9n carinf for the elderly, aren't you? Build a site on elderly care if this is your passion.
So, you're a brain surgeon. Well, if that is your passion, there are a million different health related subjects you could build a site on.
Online home businesses can take you anywhere you want to go. Help others, help the world, help the environment and help yourself. You don't need building permits, environmental assessments and so on.
Choose and build.
By the way, the best solution for online home businesses I have found is the site building company I deal with for my sites. If you are interested, here is their video on how to build a site for online home businesses.
A housing contractor, considering semi-retirement, is looking for an easier line of work. E-publishing sounds interesting, but he's spent his entire professional life with his head in blueprints. What could he possibly have to offer as an author?
He's a walking gold mine to any
homeowner or potential home buyer! Like very few others on this planet, he knows
what contracting scams to watch out for... how to get lumber at cost... traps
to avoid... checklists galore for doing just about everything in home
construction... and much, much more. Sell it, fella!
