If you want to be successful with your new Internet Business you need to get it in front of the right people. In many cases this will take you a little time to do. There are some excellent, free web cloaking tools, which will get you started down the road to success.
You may be wondering what this has to do with your potential customers. Your goal is to get the impulse buyers to your website. Your website will sell your product and your efforts to make money online will be working towards closing the sale. Many of your potential customers will just be seeing your website and will not be looking to buy your product. It is necessary to set up your website in such a way that your potential customers are at the very least interested in buying your product, they just need you to “point them in the right direction”. To do this properly you need to learn how to target your customers and the tools you need to become successful online.
Targeting your customers is a key step in making money online. There are a lot of ways to get a customer list, but to start we will use one of the best, Google AdWords. Google AdWords can be small start up business or full scale business. We will touch on this topic more later when we have more time. To get started you will need to have a Google AdWords account and know how to use it.
Signing up with Google is easy just go the web. You will have to go to their website and have your purchaser for a project. The project manager will create your ad and you will have to approved by them. If your plan to use a squeeze page to get your prospects to sign up with you, then your prospective customer should go to this squeeze page and put in their name and Email address into the subscription box.
After they have filled out the form information, they will be sent to a sales page. Make sure the sales page does a good job of selling your product. You want the squeeze page to be very enlist and persuade the customer to sign up. Just one solid sales letter talking about your product should be enough.
Many people are coached to go to different places to find their prospects. There are many different ways to uncover prospects. If you search on Google you will hear many coaches say that the first thing you should do is on a website called “Google AdWords” to find your prospects. This advice is wrong. I will say that the first rule in Affiliate Marketing is to find your prospects. The second rule is to sell your product to them.
Now, how do you find prospects? In one word you will need to advertise! A lot of people on the internet are getting discouraged when they find that they cannot advertise on the internet. It is possible though to advertise and it should be simple. Create ads on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. At my club I tell people to advertise on those sites. The fact that they are on these sites is what gets people to look at you.
Facebook is especially good because you can commercialize your page and put small ads on the pages. But the fact that you are on there will mean people are already are interested in the product that you are selling.
Just take a look at my twitter account and you will see several messages in my twitter stream with links to different products that I am promoting. This is not a coincidence, this is how I use the twitter stream to advertise.
Some of the accounts that you follow and you will see when you sign up for them are personal and you can put your twitter id in the link that you will be following. Twitter is a good source to build lots of followers and I suggest that you follow lots of people. The more followers you have the more people will see your tweets. Those people are obviously interested in the product that you are selling and they might buy it. So just make sure you are following people who are in the same niche as you are in. It is a great way to advertise and reach a large group of people at the same time.
We have just covered the first two steps to making your first sale online. There are many ways to promote your product and there are thousands of people out there so you will have to take your time and do your research well, especially about the niche and the product. Once you have done your research and decided which niche to go into and which products to promote then you can start your marketing campaign.
