4 Step Process To Making Money Online!
In this article I'm going to talk about the process of a successful online business model, and how if implemented correctly anyone can start making good money online following this proven process!
I'll begin by first explaining that making money online IS a process, and people who have the mindset that they can literally "make money overnight" need to get out of this mindset as it is not one that will help them achieve their dreams and goals.
To make money online you firstly need to understand that it will not come instantly and there is a process involved to actually doing it successfully! - So in this article I'm going to explain my key process for making money online and show how it can easily be done if you are willing to have patience and follow a proven plan (process).
Here's the first part of the process, it's setting up your squeeze page which will work to capture subscribers who in time (after being placed in the process) will hopefully turn into residual income.
Step 1 - Squeeze Page
Step 1 is to get a quality squeeze page online. A squeeze page is a one page website where the focus is on getting the visitor to place their information (name and email address) into your subscriber form so that they can receive more information about your opportunity, usually we do this by offering a quality free product that can help to solve their problem. NO selling can take place at all on the squeeze page, and the squeeze page itself is NOT their to make money in any way, but purely just to capture subscribers.
Step 2 - Free Offer
Step 1 is to market a free offer on your squeeze page. This is a free offer that people will receive if they choose to subscribe. By having a free offer you are instantly helping the person and people love freebies so they are far more likely to subscribe. People are not going to give you their information for nothing, so by having a free offer you are instantly far more likely to get people on your subscriber list.
The free offer has to be something extremely relevant and if possible solve the exact problem that the person has. For example if the person was looking for "how to lose weight quickly" your free offer would help them accomplish what they were looking for, e.g how to lose weight quickly.
Step 3 - Email Follow Up
Step 3 is incredibly important and it's a huge part of the "process" to making money online. The email follow up is placed inside an autoresponder and will automatically send emails at set intervals to follow up with our subscribers. Following up with subscribers correctly is EXTREMELY important as everything you ever send you your subscribers matters.
The reason as to why everything you send matters is because making money online is all about "trust and relationships". If you subscriber list trusts you because you've helped them out and built up your relationship then they are going to be FAR more likely to purchase products and trust the information you are telling them. So if you send them a BAD product offer you are damaging your reputation and the trust that you have been building with that list. It's highly important that you think extremely carefully about everything that goes out to your list so that you DO NOT spam them.
Having a long email follow up is necessary. By this I mean an email followup "PRE-WRITTEN" that will continue to contact your subscribers for 1 year minimum (You can add to this as you get closer to that year, but you need to be having a 1 year minimum to start with).
I recommend that in the first week you concentrate on sending emails every 1-2 days to initially start building the relationship, and then email your list to tell them that you will be sending them a weekly newsletter related to their niche FREE to help them out.
After the first week, if you contact them weekly with a set newsletter this will help to maintain/build trust and the relationship.
Step 4 - Residual Income/Serial Cycle Income
Step 4 is very important because it is going to be the difference between making a BIG income online, and an average income online.
Residual Income or Serial Cycle Income refers to commissions that pay time and time again without you doing anything. These are things like being an affiliate for someone elses paid newsletter, or a paid subscription program. These type of commissions will pay you monthly income without you needing to provide any content / help at all.
If you concentrate on promoting these types of offers to your list, then you're income with grow residually each and every month.
Conclusion & Final Thoughts
A lot of so called "guru's" talk about traffic, and traffic generation being incredibly important and the holy grail to making money online, and I agree that without traffic you have NO business. Traffic is incredibly important, however having a process in place which can turn that traffic into a proper income is just as important.
It is pointless learning how to generate traffic and generating loads of traffic to a website that doesn't have a a proper process set up as detailed above. - Before I learnt exactly how to make money online I used to sent traffic to varous pages which had no process set up = NO MONEY.
Since learning how to effectively set up a process above I've been able to have much better results.
