This article could be called “How we generated an extra $900 per month in 21 minutes.”
Okay, that’s not entirely accurate…
Yes, it really did take 21 minutes from start to finish — i.e. from a new online lead to a closed sale complete with credit card authorization faxed to our office.
But there was a lot of planning, work and testing that went on behind the scenes to put a SYSTEM in place that NOW works for us like clockwork.
So what does all of this have to do with you?
Glad you asked.
Prior to setting up an online business (or overhaul one that isn’t working) the key is to avoid “being busy” to instead focus on creating systems that will allow your online venture to work.
And that’s because THE key to your online success is to build a business asset… rather than blowing a wad of dough on “marketing” that may create some activity (or noise) and nothing else.
What do I mean?
For example, last year a client approached us to help them with their online venture — AFTER spending close to 100k on pay per click marketing.
Unfortunately for them (and their online business) the web marketing company they chose prior to us never optimized their landing page or sales process. By the time they contacted us they were hemorrhaging cash and in need of financial life support.
Setting Up an Online Business… the Right Way
Okay, so how exactly did we end up generating an extra $900 per month in 21 minutes?
For starters, back in February we discovered that we were overlooking a market segment. And this discovery was made by doing keyword research.
We also discovered that people were willing to pay for what they wanted.
By creating an “action page” and testing the web copy (language) the conversion rate for the page went up from 9.3% at the beginning of our test to an average of 27.6% each month.
Article marketing and SEO created more traffic to the page.
A simple (and free) tool was integrated into our site to automatically email leads with information and a link to a page on our website where they could learn more about the program, download FAQ and program application, and provide a forum to answer their questions.
To summarize, these are the steps EVERYONE must follow for online success:
- Find what people want
- That they are willing to pay for
- Give them what they want
- Measure feedback
- Measure feedback
- Automate system
How long did it take us to create this system?
From start to finish 4 months.
Yes, four months from start to finish to create a system for our business that runs on autopilot.
And to date it has already put a few thousand dollars in our pocket, created a steady stream of revenue for our business, and a consistent (and nearly predictable) amount of leads each month.
That, my friends, is what I call a business ASSET…
