Are you being pulled in every direction online? Today it’s ecom, tomorrow it’s selling t-shirts, the next day it’s viral traffic software that gets you 5,000 visitors by clicking a button! Yeah, I get it, there’s a lot of junk going around out there. In this article you’ll find out what is needed to build a consistent business online in just 4 steps.
The very best thing I have learned over the years is to FOCUS on 1, yes 1 SINGLE method and don’t stop until you perfect it. If you keep jumping around from ecom, to Twitter, physical products, email marketing, video channel marketing, etc. the list goes on and on, you’ll find in a year, you are right back at square 1.
HOWEVER – let’s say you choose email marketing (my personal favorite) just do some numbers…
After 1 year, you could have an business bringing in a conservative, easy, $50/day…
Month 1 – you set up your landing page, list and email sequence and begin marketing
Every day, you drive 50 visitors to your landing page (either free traffic like blogging, Facebook posts, Twitter posts, YT vids, etc.) OR paid traffic, approx. $0.40/click * 50 clicks/day = $20/day in ad spend
If your opt in page converts at say 35% (pretty average), you’ll get approx. 17 New subscribers per day.
17 * 30 = 510 subscribers per month
(now some will drop off and unsubscribe, but just hypothetically here)
Month 2 = 1020 subscribers
Month 3 = 1530 subscribers
and after 1 year doing the same thing every day (50 visits, 17 subscribers per day)
you’d have 6,120 subscribers on your email list.
Now – I haven’t even gotten into the breaking even portion of your list building. Along the way when you’re sending 50 clicks per day to your landing page – you can provide the visitors with value and direct them to an offer which you are an affiliate for and will make money if they buy. Don’t sell things to them – RECOMMEND things to them.
Like, hey, this email is all about getting traffic to your blog/website/ecom site, whatever. I ran across this really cool program that shows you how to utilize social media and get 50 visitors per day in just an hour worth of work! pretty neat, so if you’re having issues getting traffic, check this out while you have a minute.
and then link to the offer in your email.
There’s quite a bit more to it than just that, but I think you get the idea… FOCUS day after day, month after month, and if you really take this seriously, you can have a good size email list in just a year. Just think if you double your efforts = 100 visits per day = 12,240 subscribers after 1 year.
