People often ask me: “What’s the best thing I can do to profit quickly online?”
I’ve never been one to beat around the bush so I say, “Do you really want to know or are you just asking!”.
If you’re lucky it will take you a month or two depending on how much time and energy you are willing to put into it! I know that when I joined Global Resorts Network I was pretty impatient too! But I got my first sale in a week and got over it!
So at this point they might say something like, “What’s the secret?!”. I tell them that there is no secret! I tell them that they need to provide value before they can expect people to give them money! It sounds like common sense but I’m still amazed at how much people will do without educating themselves first. They want results and they want them now. They don’t want to learn about what benefits are available with Global Resorts Network membership, they just want money…now! I try and tell them “It doesn’t work that way! You have to be willing to spend time and money growing your knowledgebase to add to your value, so you can have something to teach people that buy from you, you have to build your value so you can be attractive to your buyers.
Now I’m certainly not suggesting you buy every Online Top Tips Secret Course tomorrow! But what I am saying is that it pays to invest in your education.
So the topic I’m going to cover today is “How to Profile Online in Five Steps”.
1) First of all, you’re going to need something to market
It sounds simple doesn’t it? Unfortunately, this is where most people get lost in a flurry of endless useless activity.
They get lost in all of the information that is out there. They don’t spend enough time marketing, but spend too much time choosing a product that’s “perfect”, then when it doesn’t market itself they wonder why they haven’t made any money! Then they’ll say it didn’t work!
IT doesn’t work YOU work! YOU have to market it. You have to put in some kind of effort before you call something a scam and say that “It doesn’t work!”.
What you market isn’t nearly as important as HOW you market! I could say that Global Resorts Network is the best company in the world, and for many people it is… But different shoes fit different feet!
So when you’re choosing a product to market, don’t get caught up reading reviews from people that were too lazy to work. They call everything a scam because it will always be useless to them. They get mad about that and instead of making an effort to actually promote something of value, they’ll charge you $25 to read their special report on “What Your Upline Won’t Tell You!” Ann Sieg fans beware!
At this point, I also feel that it is crucial to mention that promoting your own products is probably not a good idea if you’re new to internet marketing, or if you haven’t made any money from it yet!
Selling your own products takes a lot more time, energy and money and as a newbie you’ll be hard pressed to create something that people will actually want to buy, so take note! A lot of people get all emotional at this point and think that something’s great because they created it!
Don’t trust yourself until you have made some real money! Unless you really want to spend even longer learning all the basics without getting paid! You’ll be thanking me later when your experience promoting others’ products puts you in a position where you can sell an E-book and some Recordings for $97 and sell 100 to your list just by sending out one email. Your list will grow naturally if you follow the steps provided in this email. You’ll also feel confident charging such a price because you’ll know that the value you’re providing is worth FAR more than $97!
So, ideally you would pick a program that you would feel comfortable talking about in depth. A Company that you can be passionately and genuinely enthusiastic about. This point is crucial because your job is going to involve you talking about it A LOT, so do your research and take your time until you find something that suits you personally.
Don’t be tempted to skip this point and just pick the first thing that catches your eye! If you get stuck, take some time out from your computer for a while, sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and write down what your main interests are so that you can look for a product that complements your true nature. Take some time because it will pay off handsomely later 🙂 Plus you want to make sure you come across as congruent.
I feel passionate about promoting Global Resorts Network because I love travel. I do well promoting Global Resorts Network because people sense that I believe that what I’m promoting is valuable. If you believe that what you’re promoting is valuable then the only thing that could possibly block you from achieving financial success online is … laziness!
So after you’ve done some thinking and you’ve worked out what you’d like to promote, you need to get a duplicatable system going, this will ensure that you don’t have to spend hours showing people how to do every little thing before tehy’ve made money, people want to make money quickly so the simpler and more duplicatable it is the better. We use Global Pro Builder, IIP and RFS A LOT!
Some companies like Global Resorts Network have a joining fee of $1500 or $3000 if you want the product too, however, if you don’t want the product you can just join as an affiliate for $100 and this caters to the lower end of the market whilst still giving them the opportunity to make $1000 commissions on their front and back line sales 🙂
2) By now you should have your programme to market and you can move on to the fun stuff which is “Branding Yourself” 🙂
Branding is crucial in this industry and is becoming more and more important across the board in all industries as time goes by.?
It is about building relationships with others. Branding yourself makes people feel like they know you. When they feel like they know you, they trust you, and selling is all about building and keeping trust. You’ll need to deliver valuable content to them consistently, beginning with a free email course that you can set up via your auto-responder. There is a lot of debating going on about how often you should mail your list and I would recommend no more than once a day, as less is more sometimes – especially if you find yourself doing it for the sake of doing it! Have a day off here and there to keep your messages and videos useful to your customers. My motto is: “If it doesn’t give people value as soon as they read it, whether emotionally, spiritually, physically or financially, then DON’T send it! As long as you’re delivering valuable content that they can put into practice immediately in some way, shape or form, then they’ll always be happy to receive emails from you 🙂
Then you can get started with your videos, articles and preferably, if you can, an E-book or free report that you have the rights to or have written so that you can offer it to people on your capture page. When they sign up to your auto-responder they get to download it. This helps build your value and their trust in you. That way, they will hopefully want to buy from you later, which is the whole point! So it’s worth making an effort here friends 🙂
The very first thing you need to do is set up a capture page with your name as the url (ie: the website address), and get good hosting that will give you lots of support because you’ll need it!
I personally LOVE Host Monster. Their customer service is just out of this world! When I was a newbie they spent hours on the phone helping me out. Here is the link: http://www.hostmonster.com/track/successonline/ For my autoresponder, I use Get Response. Here is the link for that: http://www.getresponse.com/successpass There are other autoresponders you can use, however, Get Response and Aweber are right up there as being the best. Here is the link for Aweber http://www.aweber.com/?305117
So, just to give you an example, if your name is “Jane Doe” you would set up www.JaneDoe.Com if it was available, to use as your main capture page. You would have a little blurb on there about yourself and what you have to offer people should they join you in your business. You can include a video of yourself here too.
Just be yourself in your videos and let your true personality shine through 🙂 At the end of the video you’ll be telling them about what training you have to offer with what programs and why signing up with your team will benefit them more than any other team within the companies you’re promoting. Really emphasize what you feel YOUR unique selling point is.
3) Once you’ve done that, you want to make sure that you provide training that you hold personally AT LEAST once a week at vereconference or wherever you can for FREE as soon as you feel ready, in addition to any training your group provides. This helps to brand you as a leader and even if you don’t feel like talking on your own for an hour, people will type questions into the box where they can communicate with the lead speaker by typing and that will give you a constant stream of relevant topics to discuss if your mind isn’t full of them already! Which it should be by now if you’re learning from all the successful marketers that are out there! Some people like to wait until they’ve made some sales before they start doing their own training. That’s going to slow the process down because you learn in action, and good now is better than perfect never! If you’re worried that there won’t be enough people there then ask everyone on your team to help you out and provide some moral support.
4) Now you’ve done that, you need to start recording videos, you might think, “Oh no I’m not attractive enough or some other rubbish! But the truth of the matter is, no one cares if you’re 55, 75, or 19! It makes no difference. All they care about is what you have to offer them and how you’re going to help them get what they want – money! That is what’s on their mind! Not the spot on your chin! Or the bags under your eyes! So you need to record as many videos as you can that provide value for people and help them with an immediate problem they’re having (eg: posting blogs or how to set up a auto-responder… you get the idea!).
If you feel as passionate about self improvement, as I do, that attracts a huge targeted market because most of them love online marketing! Upload the videos to TubeMogul.com or traffic geyser traffic.ElizaInc.com because it does it quicker and blasts your videos out to different networking sites for you! This saves you the time it would take you to upload your videos to each site manually – and time is money!
Once you have decided on the products to sell, set up your capture page, started your free training and recorded your first set of videos and have them on lots of different networking sites, you’re going to need to start writing articles and blogs.
When writing articles you have to be very careful when you are advertising, because you should be promoting your knowledge more than the product you market! It sounds contradictory but you’re building awareness of your value as a person who can help people to get what they want. You can still promote your program or product but make sure there is a lot of value there too! Writing articles takes time, but like videos, they will last for years if not forever! Make sure people feel like they know you and want to be associated with you. Every video article and blog should be seen by you as a vehicle that gets you closer and closer to making money and helping others to do the same. The more people get from you, the more you will get and the more you will want to give. Give and you shall receive they say! It’s SO true 🙂 So if you want to write a good article that gets you results, cover a topic that will help people to make money or feel better in some way and make it interesting and informative so that it spreads across the web like wildfire! Just kidding! – but do create lots of value!
5) Now we’re going to get you blogging! Blogging is a lot of fun! You can express your views and impart your knowledge and get free exposure for yourself and the products you market for free so pay attention!
First and foremost you have to remember to link. Link to other resources and blogs that you like to read and that are related to your topic. I’ve noticed that if you become a regular on someone’s blog they tend to become a regular on yours!
Also remember the power of keywords and phrases. Take some time to think about which search terms will point people to your products and services. Use tools like Wordtracker at www.wordtracker.com to explore which search terms your potential customers might use to find you. Then you’ll want to write a blog with one of those terms as the title. As you write, think of how you can impart value to the reader. Use the same techniques that you use when gathering information for a video or article. Read other popular blogs to get an idea, or maybe watch a few popular videos on the topic you want to write about, and tie your content into theirs. If you can, find a very popular video or article that has over 1000 views and then expand on what they had to say, almost as if you’re finishing a soap after the frustrating “To Be Continued” sign comes up at the end! lol That often gets you a lot of traffic because you’re filling in the gaps for people 🙂 They really appreciate that!
For more ideas on how to blog you, can run off to Amazon.com and pick up a copy of Blogwild by Andy Wibbels.
6) Last but not least, we’re going to get your pay per click campaign set up.
Now there are two ways of doing this…
You can use a pay per click agency – just go and type that into Google, or you can do it yourself. A lot of pay per click agencies won’t charge you more than a couple of hundred dollars to join up initially so it’s worth using one if you want to. If you need help finding one then I can point you in the right direction 🙂
Otherwise, read something like Google Adwords by Perry Marshall or pick up a copy of Adwords Cpm scanner from here: www.Adwords180Scanner.com
Whatever you do, TAKE ACTION! Because nothing happens until something moves!
