From time to time, I received different email from my subscribers, customer and other people. Although their questions not the same, BUT same point, It’s all about MONEY.
Some email are “How to start online business” ( selling digital product online ), “Losing money and still no idea how to make money”, “How to convert more visitors into customer”……………….! You can see, all are about MONEY. All the questions are talking about MONEY.
Here are 4 main things you should build in to your online business. No matter you’re selling digital product or physical product on the internet.
1. Clean and Professional Website – You don’t need to hire expert designer for your website, just keep it look clean, choose the correct font type/size, suitable picture and put all the text and picture position nicely. Use light color for your web template will look nice and clean.
2. Affiliate Program – If you want to get more target customer and more sales time to time, then you should use affiliate program for your business. Mostly digital product will pay high commission like 50% or 70% for every sale. And physical product will pay around 5% – 10%.
3. Autoresponder – Want to convert subscriber into new customer? And convert new customer into repeat-customer? Offer your “Visitors” free information like ebook, ereport or newsletter for free, and have them exchange their email to you. This is your chance to follow-up your free subscriber to buy your product. And if you have customer, offer them special information and have them subscribe to your autoresponder. Like, offer your existing customer more value information or discount coupon, and they will become your repeat customer.
4. Support Helpdesk – Most customer will buy your product because you have customer support. Having customer support will help you increase more repeat customer. Because they falling in love to your customer support service. Most people afraid we left them behind after buy our product, here are a few example I have personally experience before after buy someone product:
A) I have difficult with their product and want to get help,BUT vendor never reply my email.
B) Poor support, they reply my email after 2 weeks.
No matter what type of product or services you’re selling on the internet, you will need these 4 tools to build in to your business for better result.
Some people email me said that “I have no money but I want to start my own online business”
Sorry, If like that, you’re not suitable to start a business now, “You need a job”. Look, running a business require money, no matter what business you’re doing, online selling? MLM business? provide services?
If you’re selling digital product online, you still need some money to get started. Like buy domain name, rent hosting, buy tools and many others depend what business you do. Sometime I received the same person email 3-4 times and asking the same question – “No money but want to start online business”, I reply and said that at least require own domain name and web hosting for selling online. But this person said that he cannot afford $10 per month for the hosting.
Look, he even cannot invest $10 per month for the web hosting, then HOW to start doing business? After I get experiences from this kind of email, I’m now never reply this such email anymore. If you cannot afford to maintain your business, then you’re NOT in the right time to start your own business yet. You need a job to save money for your business. Even you do MLM business, you still need to start from Part time, because you need money to maintain your sales, invest knowledges and others.
See my point? If you’re doing offline business, you need Office, staff, pay electric and water bills……..! If you cannot afford to maintain the expenses, that’s mean you’re not suitable to start your own business yet. What you need is a JOB, to collect more money to start and maintain your business.
Everyone are the same. UNLESS you’re in rich family, so you can start your business without start from a job. Otherwise, go to get a job and start to save some money now.
