Everyone wants to make money online. But few know how to do it effectively. Let’s talk about the best ways to create income online.
The first step is to pick a highly profitable niche topic. The more competitive, the better your chances of making money. I know this is the opposite of what experts will tell you. But the fact is, you need people to buy your products to make affiliate commissions with your affiliate marketing business.
Once you have the right market in mind, you’ll need to create a sales funnel around that target audience. You can use BuilderAll to do just that. But use whatever sales funnel creator you find most effective.
The third thing you’ll need to do is create an optin page. This is a page where you will collect people’s email address. Then you can follow-up with these people over time.
I suggest you write 30 emails to follow-up with them and educate them on why they should purchase your product or affiliate offer.
Now that you have that in place, you’ll want to find highly targeted website traffic. The best traffic is search engine based. Meaning that people are literally searching for the information in Bing or Google.
To get that type of traffic you’ll need to create content. This content can either by in video format or written format. I like to do both.
For articles, make sure they are 400 words or more. For videos, make sure they are 5 minutes or more.
Once you have the sales funnel created, the follow-up series of emails in place and the traffic going to your optin page, you’ll start to see some conversions. I typically see about 1-5 percent sales conversion.
So out of 100 clicks or website visitors you should expect 1 to 5 sales for your information product or affiliate offer.
If you can get those results with an average customer value of $100 or more, you will succeed with digital marketing online. It’s just a matter of scaling up your efforts and keeping track of your results.
As you can see, it’s not that complicated to earn a full-time income online using information marketing or affiliate marketing. The trick is to have everything in place to do the “selling and telling” for you. So you don’t have to literally explain your product or service to every single person who visits your website.
