Start An Internet Business With 7
So are you ready to take the plunge and start an internet business?
Let me show it to you right now. This is my cannot miss
Choose a profitable topic that is interesting to you.
There are two things here. It needs to be profitable, and it needs to
be interesting to you. You would be surprised how small a
niche can be and still be profitable. Make sure that some
people are interested in that niche, especiallly you. If you
have no interest in the singles' dating scene, but everybody says that
is where all the money is on the internet, you are going to run out of
gas before you get very far. It is not your
the emails of people interested in that same topic.
What do I mean by that? What I like to do is offer a
mini-course in exchange for a first name and an email. So I
may say, the five mistakes people make when buying their first
home. Or the five mistakes people make when training their
Labrador puppy. Whatever it is, I usually offer some type of
5 part, seven part mini-course in exchange for a first name and
3) Ask those
people what they want.
That is really important. When someone gives me his first
name and email, I ask him what is his biggest question about selling
his home or training his Labrador puppy or whatever my niche
is. Now I know exactly what my customers want. As people
pile into your email list and pick up your mini course, they are
telling you exactly what their biggest question is. How
hard is it going to be to find the answers to those biggest
questions? Not very hard if you know anything about the
topic. And the questions you do not know the answers to, you
can look them up on the internet. That is real easy to do.
people what they already want.
Imagine if you had an information product that answered the exact
questions that people asked. How hard would it be to turn
back around, go to those people, and say, "You know what? I
know exactly what you want to know. I have an info product
that answers the exact questions you asked me. It will cost
you $27. How about it? Do you want to make a
trade?" Well, yeah, that is a real easy trade for
them. And they will probably read through your e-book and
think, "How did you know exactly what I wanted?" Well, 500 of
you had about the same basic 8 to 10 questions. I just
created an information product based on the questions you asked
me. Do you see how easy that is? You do not need to
reinvent the wheel.
5) Put the
whole thing on auto pilot.
Now that you have chosen a profitable topic, collected emails, and
asked people what they want, it is time to create an information
product to meet that need. Whatever they tell you they want,
give it right back to them. Then put up your sales page,
collect the payment, deliver the product, refunds, recruiting promotion
partners, paying promotion partners, etc. Everything is on
auto pilot, and you are free to follow your
6) Offer more
to those who want more.
Because if they loved your $27 ebook, imagine how they will really fall
in love with your $270 home-study course. Or your $2700
weekend boot camp, or whatever more there is. You see what I
am saying there.
7) Tie every
information product into monthly continuity income.
Now, a lot of you are probably thinking, "But I am not an expert in
anything." You don't have to be an expert. Let me
ask you a question. Do you really like learning from
experts? They're condescending. They don't
communicate very well. And quite frankly, most of them are
boring. You don't need a PhD or an MD or any other degrees
behind your name. All you need to do is take somebody by the
hand and show them exactly how you got through the problem.
