1 Optimize For Subscribers
There is one thing that drives my income more than anything…wait for it…wait for it…Email Subscribers. My list of subscribers is the most valuable part of my business. Delete my website tomorrow. Shut down my YouTube Account. Close down my Facebook. etc. My business would be just fine.
Would there be work to do, yes. But as long as I have my email list I can make money. I could quickly be back up and running and sending offers to my email list. That my friend is the power of an email list. So how do you do it?
Give people multiple opportunities to optin to your list:
- Optin in the sidebar
- optin before your content
- optin after your content
- optin in your content
Offer different types of lead magnets on different topics
- Free video training
- Free memberships
For example look at the different options we give people just in the sidebar of our blog alone.
2 Promote Your Products On Your Blog
As much as I like subscribers sometimes you just have to sell. On my blog not only do I offer people an opportunity to join my email list I also give them the chance to buy my products. Some people will certainly buy from those links but more importantly it makes people aware of my products.
Some blogs I go to I cant by a product if I wanted to. I have to join there email list and go through a 20 email autoresponder sequence before I even know that they have a product. Don’t do this!
Have links to your products on your your blog. It could be a dedicated products page or in an email signature line. Both work great.
3 Always Be Selling
In everything you do you should make references to your products. For example: I do a lot of free content via blog posts and videos for my audience. But I often reference my products when I create that content. Things like “In the Authority Powered Lab we talk about how to set up your funnel from scratch” or things like “The other day one of our lab members asked this question”.
While they seem like simple conversation points they are making people aware of my product. I am also showing the value in my product (creating a sales funnel from scratch, answering members questions, etc. This can be a very powerful selling technique.
4 Downloadable Sales Letters
Say what? OK, not actual sales letters. What I’m talking about here is referencing your products in the things people download from you. Give away a free report for an optin? Cool, promote your product in that free report. If you have free video content put a banner or link on that same page to your paid products.
Here is an example from the VIP section here at Authority Powered:
I’m directly promoting the Authority Powered Lab from our free VIP content area. And you can bet that link gets clicks :).
5 An Autoresponder Followup Series
An autoresponder followup series is a series of emails that automatically go out to new subscribers based on a set interval. When someone subscribers to my list I have roughly 40 emails triggered every day to every other day to go out. That is 40 days of hands-off email from me! This builds a relationship with my audience and promotes my products.
The first 7 days is a combination of relationship building and a promotion of the Authority Powered Lab. After that there is a mix of content and promotional emails for my other products. If your a lab member you can see exactly how to create this sequence in your business. See what I did there ;).
6 Create Content With A Purpose
I say this all the time but people don’t seem to get it. If I am trying to sell a product or membership on losing weight with a low carb diet. Than you better believe I am creating content that feeds into promoting that product. Often times people just create content that they feel like writing. That’s all well and good but you have to hit your target audience. You have to attract the type of people who would be interested in the things you are promoting.
On this blog I teach people how to make money with a blog and their own products. Guess what…I sell products on both of those things. I am creating content with a purpose.
7 Don’t be afraid to giveaway the goods
Many bloggers have a hard time finding the line between free content and paid content. Always error on the side of giving too much good stuff away. You want to blow people away with your free content because that is how you get people to trust you enough to buy from you.
At the end of the day, must of your products will deliver the same information as the free content. But in a more step-by-step organized way. If people are willing to look for the information they can get everything for free. But most people are willing to pay for a shortcut and that is where your products come into play. All in all don’t be afraid to give too much away.
