Okay, so you’ve heard about all these people making tons of money online, in fact some are even becoming millionaires right? Is it real? Are these people really making that kind of money and if so, how are they doing it? I know there is a ton of stuff online claiming you can make a six figure income in literally weeks or months and the crazy part about it all is, a lot of it is true, you just have to know how to market your business or sell your program so that you can be lead down the roadmap to riches.
Let’s face it, if you in the home based business industry, you’re in sales and the truth is, nobody likes to sell. You’re first impression may be cold calling new prospects where Oj you have to try and convince them to join your business or sell them on your product right? In fact the complete opposite is true, the internet allows you to reach out to a targeted audience and when that targeted audience is ready to buy from you, they’ll be contacting you via e-mail or phone. In my entire internet marketing career, I’ve never once had to pick up the phone and make one single cold call because I’ve always allowed the websites to do all of the telling and selling for me and this is exactly what you want to do.
Your next question may be where do I get all of the web traffic and find people that are interested in buying my products? Here’s where you need to start thinking like your consumers. If you’re in the home based business industry, chances are people are searching online the same exact way you found the business, so wouldn’t it make sense to put your site on that classified ad section, in Google, Yahoo or Yahoo news the same way you found it?
People tend to fail because they do not know how to effectively advertise their business online. Good places to start posting some basic ads are on craigslist in the small biz opp section and the jobs and sales section. Another great resource is Yahoo News Groups, Google News Groups and USfreed ads. Another really effective way to drive targeted home business seekers to your site is to advertise in ezines. An ezine is an online magazine or group of people that have agreed to receive e-mails in regards to money making opportunities. For a small cost, typically $10 to $50 you can blast out your message via e-mail to thousands of high quality prospects. Doing a simple Google search on any one of the advertising sources mentioned above will point you in the right direction.
Lastly, building a blog is an excellent way to begin building your web exposure for your business. It’s 100% free to build blogs at WordPress. A simple Google search on “wordpress blogs” will take you to the main site. The trick is to post to your blog everyday whether it’s good or bad and tell your story. Within each post, you will want to use keyword phrases that relate to your business in the title of each new post. What this will do for you is rank your blog higher in Google and Yahoo search engines for those specific keywords.
My last tip to drive extremely highly targeted prospects to your business is writing a press release at webwire. For $9.95 you can write a press release and have it ranked on page 1 in Google for your business opportunity and here’s how you do it. Let’s say your business is “XYZ.” In the title of your press release, you will want the word, “XYZ” within the title. Secondly, you will want the word “XYZ” two to three times within the body of the press release. What this will do is optimize your article for the Google and Yahoo search engines. For only 9 bucks to get top positions for keywords that would cost thousands, you really can’t beat it.
