There are basically only two tools needed to start and build a business online.
First you need a PAGE BUILDER. This is a tool that allows you to create pages that can lead people seeking your services to a device that allows data collection (mainly a name and email) so contact and connection can be made to create a relationship that eventually leads to sale.
In addition, an AUTO RESPONDER is needed to create lists and organize your contacts to send out information to large groups, which automatically increases the number of people you need to reach to run and grow a business.
With these two components in hand, the following actions can be performed:
Decide which niche the business will serve and which problem or problems need to be solved. A lot of thought and analysis should be put into this step to continue in the right direction and be successful.
2 The next thing to do is build a lead magnet … this is a page that allows you to collect basically a name and an email. To get someone to give you the name and email address, make a free offer that entices them into action. This free offer should be full of valuable content. It can be a video, a book, something of value that will meet a need of your potential customer.
Drive this traffic (contacts, trade, business, customers, people) to the lead magnet. This can be done in many different ways and you can be creative in how this is done. I received this information from a colleague who presented all these ideas at a live video seminar for people in the same affiliate business as she and she invited us to invite all our contacts. This was a win-win strategy. Videos, free and paid ads, social media posts, email marketing, networking are some ideas to drive people to what you have to offer in your lead magnet. Think outside the box.
4. Provide value regularly. Email your list every day. Connect with them constantly. Offer them value and show them that what you give will give them a lot of value all the time. When you then offer products, they will see that you give them something much more valuable than the cost of your products.
5. Finally make a sale. with 20% of your customers, just make the sale. They are ready. Your offer gives more value than the cost … it is a profit for both your customer and you.
This is a brief description of how to get your business up and running.
