Without having an online marketing funnel you are not going to be able to tap into the huge potential of money that is out there to be made. The problem with pretty much all business opportunities is they do not address this problem. They are just concerned with you bringing people to their services or products. In short they are concerned with only one thing, and that is are you making them sales.
Therefore you won’t hear to many ofÂ owners tell you that you need an marketing funnel.
Another thing that has gotten out of hand is network marketers telling you that you need to focus on the business and not worry about other stuff. Well its the other stuff that is going to pay you while you find the few that want to get involved with what you are doing long term.
Online Marketing is different from off line marketing the rules aren’t the same. Online, people are looking for information, they are looking to solve their problem.
How To Create A Solid Online Marketing Funnel
While this seems like some super secret that only the few elite marketers on the planet know how to do it’s really not that complicated at all.
The cat is out of the bag! You absolutely need to learn how to blog, this is the key that ties everything else together for you. Without a blog you don’t have an online identity and without that, you will have a hell of time convincing someone that they should buy off of you.
You also should have lead capture pages(s).Â You use your lead capture pages to find the people who need your help. You can also do this via blogging, however you will need to use capture pages to tap into many of the sources ofÂ traffic available to you.
Communication is critical. You absolutely need an autoresponder system there are many online to choose from, personallyÂ I would only use one that allows me to connect my blog rss feed to my autoresponder system.
The secret to a successful marketing funnel is in your email marketing habits. Besides having a newsletter type follow up series you also need to broadcast regularly to your list. Their have been many studies shown that you can indeed get away with mailing to your list twice a day.Â The key is to not always market to your list, but to provide valuable information that they can use. Basically helping them get what they want.
You can sell 1 product or a dozen products it doesn’t matter as long as they all work together. Just off the top of my head I can think of 3 products alone that I have purchased to help me blog. All three products have affiliate programs attached to them.
I write in 5 blogs regularly , I wouldn’t be able to do that if I wasn’t using tools that helped me.Â It is these same tools that other people really need to use to make their life easier.
Remember this one thing creating a good online marketing funnel isn’t about some secret decoder ring in a cereal box. It is about sharing with people the tools and services you use in your business.Â You will be a happier person once you create your personal funneling system.
