Making an online income is really mostly about one thing…getting your visitors to buy something you’re trying to sell them.
Here are 5 tips to help you become better at doing that.
Tip 1. Contact Them A Second Time
At the very least, in your email marketing, you should add on more autoresponder messages, and email more frequently.
The easiest way to do this is to take your last email you wrote, and just copy and paste it in again and send it out.
The only thing you change is the subject line to: second notice. And then say, “here is the email I sent you yesterday, in case you missed it…” and then just give them the same email.
Almost no time or effort on your part… yet if you got any response at all from the first email, you will get results from this one as well.
Tip 2. Simplify Your Squeeze Page
If you have a squeeze page out there right now to build your list, and it’s over 100 words, make it less. Usually a lot less.
Just a headline, a subhead and a one sentence call to action works wonders. At the very least it’s worth a test. It almost always increases your conversion rates.
Tip 3. Spend Less Time Reading…And More Time Working
One of the ways to increase your profits is to simply take more action. Way too many Internet Marketers study too much.
You should – at the very least – act as much as you “study”. So that means if you spent 10 minutes reading/researching, you should follow it up immediately with at least 10 minutes of pure action to build your business.
If you do nothing more but follow this rule: “take action at least as much as you study” your Internet business will meet with more success.
Tip 4. Try Super-Short Email Subject Lines
Think about it – when your friends, co-workers, and family email you, they usually write very short email subject lines. So that helps you get YOUR emails you send opened.
Also, they stand out. Most marketers use super long subject lines, so yours will draw attention because they’re so short. Try it. You’ll be amazed at your open rates.
Tip 5. Interrupt The ‘Normal’ Pattern
The last example (#4) is a pattern interrupt. If every other marketer goes long, you go short.
Here’s another example of a pattern interrupt…
On a call once, I was about to reveal a strategy for making money online.
I started it with: “What I’m about to show you, you probably won’t do even though if you did do it, your success would be almost guaranteed. However, even though it’s such a great strategy, almost everyone I share it with never does it… and I don’t know why… so you probably won’t do it… but if you did do it, man you’d get quick and easy results.”
This is a bit of reverse psychology. Most marketers frame it the other way – you can do it, but I interrupted the pattern – you probably won’t do it… The result – people are more eager to prove me wrong, and actually do it!
Yep, making an online income is all about selling, and, everyone is doing it! So if you break from the crowd you just might find the selling can become easier and faster.
Stay tuned as I’m going to be sharing more tips to help you sell more of what you’re trying to sell in my next post.
