Its no secret that very few people who start a business ever “make it”.
When I say “make it” -I mean any level of success.
This can be different for everyone.
Somebody might want just enough for their bills…
Another person may want to earn $5,000 a month while some may want to earn $5,000 a week.
And you can’t forget those who want to earn at least $1,000,000 a year.
Whatever your goals are -this is what I mean by “making it”.
So few people ever “make it”.
But those who do succeed in their business do things just a little bit different.
Have you ever noticed that?
The people that are in the top 5% of any company -they stand out from the crowd.
Today I am going to share with you 3 things that will help you be different, stand out from everybody else, get higher conversions, and ultimately put more money in your pocket.
And these 3 things can be used with any type of business opportunity.
So even if you decide to promote something new, you can still use these 3 things to help you make more money.
Let’s get started.
Use Your Own Landing Pages
Some people call them squeeze pages or lead capture pages -they are the same thing.
Yes. The company you are with will give you some nice landing pages, which is great.
But everyone else in the company is using the exact same page.
When you have your own landing pages, you can use the same traffic sources as everyone else in the company -you can even target the exact same people –and you will get higher conversions.
…because people won’t be clear on what you are selling, assuming you don’t add the company logo or name to your landing page.
With the tools we got today, it is very easy to create a landing page.
And if you don’t want to do it yourself, you can simply pay someone to create one for you.
This leads to the next thing…
Build a List
Remember, you want to do things that most people aren’t willing to do.
And one of those things is: build an email list.
When you build a list, you aren’t just building a list. You are building an asset.
- That is your audience…
- Your prospects…
- Your leads…
- Your traffic…
- Your efforts…
Forget about standing out and being different for just a second.
When you send traffic straight to the company site… all your efforts, your traffic, and your leads are going to someone else.
But this is what most people do.
They build a little bit of momentum -they get traffic, start generating leads, and maybe make a few sales.
Then something happens…
They decide to join a different opportunity for whatever reason.
…and they’re back to square one: no traffic, no leads, no list, no prospects… starting from ZERO.
All the hard work went to creating someone else’s list.
Then they start the same cycle in the new company…
Send traffic, generate some leads, get a sale or two, build some momentum, then off to the next thing.
I am all too familiar with this.
I used to do this A LOT in the beginning.
It wasn’t until I started building a list with my own custom landing pages, that my income started to grow.
When you start promoting something different that nobody has ever seen before, people will begin to optin to your list almost immediately.
…because you are standing out and being different.
But what happens once they opt in to your list?
That’s the next thing…
Most people never bother to build a list -and those that do, very few of them ever provide value to their prospects.
The majority of marketers who have a list, all they do is pitch.
Every email you get from them is nothing but a sales pitch for their “latest and greatest” offer.
It’s all about:
- a new shiny object,
- “push-button” software,
- a “business in a box” solution,
- “make money even if you don’t want to”,
- “get all these bonuses” when you buy,
- “ninja tactics”,
- a “super-secret underground traffic source”,
- the “ultimate” method,
- make money “on complete autopilot”,
- “the next multi-billion dollar industry” (my favorite)
…and a whole bunch of other nonsense and hype.
You know what most marketers do?
They treat their list like a booty call.
They (most marketers) reach out only when they want to make a quick buck.
Fortunately for us, this is a good thing.
Instead, reach out to your list regularly –helping them out as you go.
You must genuinely care about helping other people.
Provide valuable content in your emails on a regular basis.
This could mean daily, every other day, or even a few times a week -but make sure you keep in touch.
Otherwise, most people will forget all about you and when you finally reach out they will most likely hit that “spam” button; they won’t know who you are.
This happens to the typical marketer.
Don’t be a typical marketer.
…and when you think about it, it’s not really that hard to stand out and do things a little different.
All you gotta do is:
- Use your own landing pages,
- Build a list,
- and provide valuable content to your list.
So be different.
Be above average.
…and you will create an above average income.
