How To Show the Honesty and Build Trust

Written by Denise Ryder, Marketing Coach

You are racking your brain trying to figure out, even after writing a sales letter that pulls, why people still aren't buying from you.

You check your sales letter and see that you have followedrepparttar checklist to a "T." You have:

1. An attention grabbing headline

2. You have an extensive list of bullets highlighting allrepparttar 144116 incredible benefits your service/product offers.

3. You have included a few FANTASTIC bonuses just to sweetenrepparttar 144117 deal and make sure that your customers are getting more in "use" value then they are giving in "money" value.

4. You have EVEN createdrepparttar 144118 best guarantee every seen ofrepparttar 144119 face ofrepparttar 144120 earth that gives your customer "nothing to lose."

ALLrepparttar 144121 things thatrepparttar 144122 components are there for a successful sales letter...and yet...

You still are not makingrepparttar 144123 sales...what gives???

I can probably tell you "what gives." Your customer doesn't believe you and if they don't believe you they won't buy.

Think about doing business online. There is never any chance for these customers to meet you. They have never seen or even touched your product. They don't know how long you have been in business. They can't really tell how credible your are, let alone if you are for real.

This is a challenge, no doubt, however, there are some things that you can do to help make yourself more believable. With believing comes trust and trust leads to profits. So let's look at a few things that you can work into your web site's homepage to hit home this issue of believing you.

Suggestion #1: Tell me your story...

Help me build a relationship with you by telling me who you are and what prompted you to offer this particular product/service.

What is your story...

If you are into health products then tell me why you take these particular products. What were your symptoms or conditions that lead you to taking these products and then share with merepparttar 144124 results you have gotten as a result.

If you are a car mechanic, then tell me why you decided to go out on your own. What did you see that you perhaps didn't like in car mechanics out there and your story in setting to change it.

If you are a offering a service like accounting, marketing, legal, why did you spendrepparttar 144125 years it took to obtain your degree. What was it that drove you to this particular discipline and then tell me why you are targeting my kind of business. What did you find that was missing and what do you offer that fills that gap.

It boils down to relationships here and againrepparttar 144126 fact that people do business with people they; know, like and trust. If you let them get to know you, they hear a little bit about you they start to see that "hey he/she is just like me!" from there they tend to let their guard down andrepparttar 144127 trust starts to build.

Suggestion #2: Don't talk to me in generalities...give me specifics...

When you tell me what your product/service does for me, or why I need it in my life...then be specific.

Don't tell me I could lose 10 pounds in 30 days, when in actual fact I will lose 9 pounds in 26 days. If that isrepparttar 144128 case then tell me that.

eMail Follow Up System in 3 Easy Steps!

Written by Denise Ryder, Marketing Coach

The most important asset a eBusiness owner has is... A LIST

Actuallyrepparttar more lists you haverepparttar 144115 better off you are. BUTrepparttar 144116 key isn't just having several general lists, you want to have as many targeted lists as you can.

What do I mean by that??

Well, ummm for all you health and nutritional product people out there your targeted lists could be based around each ofrepparttar 144117 specific products you offer. Those in themselves make up a "list."

If you are selling information products, thenrepparttar 144118 theme or topic of each of your books/courses can make a sub or targeted list.

Don't look at your products/services as a group, break them down (if you can) and think of them in terms of a targeted group of people (or list). For each group you will send outrepparttar 144119 initial information request and then your follow up will involve specific information catering to that group.

That follow up is pretty straightforward. I mean if you have a product that is based to help migraine suffers then you wouldn't later send a mailing to that list about a new product that deals with asthma...they don't relate or tie in. You keep sending that list information relating to suffering from migraines.

There is one other list that you could be building and that is one that involves a one-time request for information. For example; if you decided to create a list of 50 eZines Directories, a person hits your autoresponder once to get that list. Or how aboutrepparttar 144120 second part of your two-part article - again a person that hits your autoresponder is after that one-time request.

How on earth do you follow up with these people, when they didn't subscribe to receive regular mailings?

That is what we are going to go over today. A 3-step follow up system which will turn these one-time requests into yet another viable list for you ;o)

So, let's get at it ;o)

Step 1 - First or Initial Contact

This isrepparttar 144121 information that you are firing out after they have hit your autoresponder.

You have two ways you can go here. You can either: letrepparttar 144122 person that you are going to send them future information that is RELATED torepparttar 144123 information they have requested here. Or, you don't say a thing at all.

Best course of action is to tell them totally open and honest fromrepparttar 144124 get go. Remember people do business with people they know, like and trust and if you aren't've lost them.

Having said that, you still need to give them a chance to opt-out of receiving more is a sample to give you something to look at and use.
