OK! Now that Labor Day weekend is gone and the kids are back in school… we now have time (maybe) to get back to creating a business online that can put our finances back where they should be.
To do that you’ll likely build a website and want traffic coming to it regularly. Actually you’ll want traffic in droves 24/7, 365! Meaning ALL the time… even when you’re sleeping.
To get the traffic to your site you will need to do just like old time “brick & mortar” stores did and that is to hang out your sign. Obviously, on the internet, you do not use a “physical” sign. It’s DIGITAL… and it’s IMPORTANT!
What you do to promote and attract visitors can really make or break your business so doing the right things the first time is vital to your success.
Everyone online who’s had any success at all will tell you that you need a list! How do you get one? There are lots of ways and the simplest is to buy one… and that is a consideration. We’ll get to that approach in another post. But for today, let’s just look at how YOU can build a list.
When you have your website online, you’ll want a “Gateway” or “Splash” page that gets a readers attention quickly AND that offers them a place to add their name and email address to your list. To get them to add their name and email address to your list, most of us offer something in return. Either an eBook or a Report that is “on subject” and that provides your visitor timely and worthwhile information.
Just do a search online and you can find tons of information for sale if you don’t already have something to give away…
Now, that gateway page… How do you do that? We have a suggestion… and that is to join with me and with James Grandstaff in using a great splash page builder that comes with an ebook to offer your site visitors and this program can, if you promote it well, be an income stream in and of itself. Check out the first ebook offered HERE.
Stay tuned for other eBooks and offers in the next couple of days.
That’s it for today…
