Following up on your potential -or future- clients is only way to succeed.
Stay in touch with your audience, and ask them to sign up to your mailing list in return for something free.
Tip: You can give your new subscribers a free report you wrote about subject of your experience.
Remember that your opt-in list is your gold mine. Always provide your subscribers with interesting value in your mailings, so they will see you as an expert and start trusting you.
Gaining trust from your prospects is essential and will make your web business successful!
4) Set up an affiliate program
If you sell your own product, this is best way to skyrocket your income. Offer your resellers a fair commission, like 40-50% on every sale they make.
Be sure to offer all necessary ad copy, banners and buttons, and make it easy to let them sign up.
Tip: You can -just like I did- use Clickbank to set up your affiliate program. It's very simple, and you can have everything set up for you in only a few minutes. Click below to learn more: http://www.clickbank.com
5) Don't bet on only 1 horse
Once your business has taken off, you should find and sell other products that match with your own product. A great way to do this is to set up a joint venture with another business owner.
Try to find web sites that match your target and swap links, exchange ads in your newsletters, etc...
Never be afraid to co-operate with your competitors. You will soon learn that both of you will benefit from a joint venture.
Tip: Don't be afraid to ask others for help. Everyone had to learn somewhere, and most people will be happy to help you with your problem or share their experiences.
These are only a few steps to consider, but when you follow these basic rules, I'm confident that your on line adventure will succeed!
