Hi there, Kristie here. Are you feeling like a firehose of information is threatening to drown you? I remember very well what that feels like. Here are some thoughts about how to combat that:
Here is the answer (and it’s not buying another product):
Pick 1 source of traffic to your blog. Here are some sources of free traffic online:
Pick 1 Product to Promote
Clickbank (pays out $25 on average)
CPA Offer (find a high paying offer)
Amazon Product (look for high ticket items since the commission is lower at 6%)
Shopify Store Offer
Here’s a Game Plan for you to follow for the next 30 days:
Take that 1 Course that seemed to make the most “sense” to you and use it with these steps in mind:
#1 Pick that 1 source of traffic that seems to “call you” or you seem to find easiest, because after all, if you’re not doing this online venture full-time, you only have so much strength at the end of a long work-day.
#2 Pick that 1 product that either (1) You know a lot about because you have used it yourself, or
(2) It’s a hot seller that you can recommend with good conscience, but you don’t have another dime to spend and you already know that the Sales Page is bringing in sales.
(For W+ and JVZoo, search for the Home Page and it will show you the Top Sellers for the week).
(For Clickbank, look for the Gravity count, to see how many have sold this month.)
(For Amazon, look for the #sold and 5 Star Reviews).
In other words, don’t waste a minute of your time trying to figure out the Best Sellers, let these marketplaces tell Y-O-U, instead.
But, don’t waste your energy on a product that you are unsure about. Make sure it is already selling to the crowd who needs it. In other words, make sure it is a tool or a course that is solving problems for people who are desperate for a solution. Don’t recreate the wheel that is already a million-dollar best seller.
Use the Vendor’s Sales Page that the vendor spent hundreds/thousands of dollars to have created to sell the product. Use the bullet points on the sales page for your blog post, video or Facebook post.
Don’t just promote an information product that anyone can “Google” on the internet. Find a software tool, such as a video software that sells well every day.
#3 Start with free traffic until you are an expert. Don’t waste money on paid ads until you are more familiar with the product and how to sell it.
#4 Don’t promote anything else for an entire month.
#5 Build a list while you are doing that and it is VERY possible, and it possible to make your first sale quickly, if you focus on this one product and follow up with an email.
#6 Get an autoresponder that you can use daily that you find most user-friendly. I use Aweber and it was the easiest one for me to learn when I was new at all of this. Plus, I didn’t have a lot of time or energy after teaching school all day, to learn a hundred new bells and whistles. When I got home from school, I just wanted to “not think”. So, keep it as simple as possible.
Building a list enabled me to work full-time from home. I love it, because I was able to stop accepting daily school assignments from the local school system in dangerous neighborhoods.
Remember, keep it as simple as possible.
