Congratulations on getting this far. By now you should have a solid idea of how to go about building a business model that can potentially earn you 6 figures a year. Remember, you can tweak this overall guide to fit into anything you do online. In simple terms all you’re doing is…
- Finding a niche where people are spending money
- Setting up a squeeze page to capture leads
- Writing quality reports following a simple template strategy
- Creating a OTO sales page to earn instant cash from visitors
- Driving targeted traffic to your squeeze page
- Communicating with your list via Email Marketing
When you break it down like this, it’s very easy to see how the whole thing works. It’s not a “fly by night” shot in the dark strategy that may, or may not work. It’s a PROVEN strategy that encompasses what every successful marketer is doing to earn a full-time income online. Results will inevitably come your way if you follow this formula. But…
You don’t have to pick the same niche as I laid out in this guide.
You don’t have to write your own reports if you don’t want to.
You don’t have to use the traffic strategies I wrote about earlier.
You don’t even have to sell your own products if you don’t want to. You can just build a list of people via your squeeze page and market affiliate products to them via your autoresponder series. If you provide quality information to your email list, you’ll make money as your list grows.
However. I do recommend sticking as closely to this guide as much as you can. It’s a proven model that works well. The most important thing about following a plan like this one is that you will gain vast experience along the way – and since nearly all successful business models are encompassed in the one laid out in this guide, you will be learning how to implement it with everything you do online for the rest of your career…
“The process will teach you the fundamentals of Internet marketing”
There’s still a learning process you’ll have to go through along the way – but I want you to think of it as an essential education in online marketing. I picked the “weight loss” niche for the purpose of this guide – but I could have easily picked an entirely different market.
Let’s say you want to enter into a niche where you have a lot of experience. This would be a wise choice for many. It’s easier to market in a niche where you feel comfortable. It’s easier to write content, Interact on social platforms – and it’s easier to build relationships with your subscribers too. But, not all niches are created equal when trying to generate traffic…
In some niches, the traffic is so small, that you simply couldn’t get enough people to your squeeze page unless you decided to use paid traffic methods like PPC or Facebook ads. This is not a bad idea at all, but there’s a learning curve to these strategies that can cost you a lot of wasted time and money. At least if you chose a niche where there’s a hungry market, you can then generate traffic for free – make some sales – build a list - and ultimately learn a lot in the process.
You can then take that experience and implement it into a different niche. Only this time you know exactly what you’re doing – and you have a lot more confidence in the outcome as a result. That’s one reason (among many) why choosing a hungry market is so important in the beginning.
You will not go far wrong by following this guide step by step through the process. As long as you take consistent action – and you stay focused on your plan, success will come to you. I don’t expect you to enter the weight loss market and become an expert overnight. But, you will become an expert in online marketing and be able to generate consistent income streams.
I didn’t start out in the “make money online” market. I started in the self-help market and learned a lot about marketing in that niche. I also made money in the “acne” niche, the “natural remedies” niche, - and even in the “baby stroller” niche.
When you know how to make money in one niche – you can transfer that knowledge to any other market of your choosing. However, if you start off in a niche where it’s difficult to make money, you may end up a very cynical marketer with a negative mindset (I’ve seen this happen time and again)
