Looking to get started in internet marketing and making money online?
This is exactly how I’ve made all my money over the last year.
I will try to give as detailed of a description as I can for anyone that is interested.
My business started with building a list of email subscribers in the personal development niche. So to get everything started I created an opt-in page, giving away a lead magnet or free gift.
For the landing page, I went the easy way and used Leadpages, but now just use it for easy split testing and then once I have something that converts well, create a page on my own wordpress site. Of course you can also outsource it for around $5 on sites like Fiverr.com.
For the opt-in page, I give away a free gift that I know converts well and the people in that niche are interested in using. I use a two-step opt-in process to get a higher conversion rate to get people’s email addresses (List Building 101)
I used a free meditation as my lead magnet for the personal development niche.
I created the meditation myself but you can outsource that pretty easily on Fiverr or on any of the PLR sites out there.
Just make sure it is of good quality so you start building a relationship with your newly built list right away.
At this point I connect my opt-in page to an autoresponder which in my case is GetResponse & create an autoresponder series.
An autoresponder is an email service client that allows you to collect a person’s email that they gave you on the opt-in page in exchange for the free gift you offered them.
You are collecting their email address in order to give them more information/content related to the free gift you offered them.
You can setup emails in the autoresponder that automatically get sent out to the people that opted-in.
These emails will be a combination of content and promotions.
So I created a list of emails that link to different website pages. These pages included:
- Content I created and posted on my own website
- Affiliate Products (Products on Clickbank as well as product launches)
- Blog Posts
So the way I made my revenue was from:
- Affiliate promotions
- Selling solo ads
- Product launch funnels
- And also from personal coaching where I charged a set fee to get their own list built.
I really had to do all of these types to make it a sustainable business. I find that just promoting affiliate products can be very difficult if you can’t give a lot of bonus content. Of course, I’m sure other people have had much better success than me with affiliate products but it was only earning about $.30 EPC (Earning Per Click) for most evergreen affiliate products.
Solo ads where driving a lot more of my revenue since it was earning me around $.75 EPC.
I also gave feedback and training for everyone that bought a solo ad from me so it took some time but it is a nice steady income.
Also, if you feel comfortable with coaching that can be very lucrative. This has been the best income source out of all of them but I’m spending more time now on creating my own products to increase my ROI for any money spent on traffic.
I hope this helps and if you have any questions, comment below. I will try to respond to every comment personally.
