How to Sell anything on the internet

Part one of my special report,

“How to avoid the internet-marketing trap”

How to

    Really

Make Money Online

I.Preventing Distractions.

A. Avoiding Information overload.Even “free” information becomes wearisome, when it’s no info at all!. Most teaser newsletters are mere snippets of info, nuggets of unrelated knowledge that clog your inbox. To really learn about something, you need to

really learn about it!,

and get real training. On that note, avoid buying every training manual out there before you can afford it. Get all the knowledge you can, but when you do make sure

1)it is knowledge you need
2)it is knowledge you can afford.

B. Avoid “Shiny Gadget Syndrome”In the beginning, you need to be extremely selective about the tools you buy. This is where most newbies get sucked in and go “belly-up” financially. There seems to be a persistent myth in the online world that some ultra-simple formula exists to make you cash over night.

Here is the simple truth:

The vast majority of internet marketers make their money by selling get rich quick plans

Why is this so successful? Because we want to believe it. Oh, people, be very very leary of people who tell you that you can make money hand over fist by doing a b and c. There are a whole lot of steps between a and b, and even more between b and c.
Even this manual is only an outline

Before you buy any program promising to make you money, make sure that you can afford them, and that they are what you really need.

Make sure that what you are purchasing is significant to your specific purpose.
And make sure that you are never “in the hole” when you purchase any online tools or training. Don’t go into debt trying to make money. That’s just dumb. Instead, buy what you need, one tool at a time.

Now, knowing just what to do first, what to buy or what service to pay for, and in what order to do it is the key to really making money.

To start doing that immediately, sign up for my internet marketing course. In it, I’ll show you exactly what to do to begin making money immediately, and when to begin critical tasks, while waiting on others.

If you want to see the whole marketing broth cook beautifully, you don’t just need the right ingredients; you also need to know how to put it all together. Right temperatures. When to stir, to add, to turn up the heat. I show you all of this. It’s sort of like Julia Child showing a batchelor how to make thanksgiving dinner. Even if he can’t boil water.

Really.

How to Sell Online—three steps

If you want to sell online, then you need to have several factors in place

  • A place to showcase your product. For most people, this is a website.
  • A way to collect payments. You need to decide how your customers will pay you. If you sell a big ticket item, like houses, for example, then you may not need a payment gateway.
  • Eyes on your product. Your website won’t do you any good if you don’t have customers looking at it. You need to make people aware of  what you have. In other words, just having a website online doesn’t guarantee that anyone will show up and shop there.

Most new entrepeuners really struggle with this last step. If you need help drawing traffic to your website, sign up for my 12 step program here:

What is Content Marketing

How content marketing is different from selling online

Content marketing is what happens when someone makes a website and runs ads off it. There is so much good quality content that the traffic to that website is enormous.

An example of this is an online encyclopedia like Brittanica.com. Of course, an encyclopedia as an example is a no brainer; everyone reading this article knows how an online encyclopedia is a content site. But most of  you reading this don’t have the staff or money to hire enough writers, researchers, and educators to contribute the quality material you would need in order to build an online encyclopedia.

So, let’s use the content site “About.com” as an example.

PREPARING FOR SUCCESS

The first step in Internet Marketing Success is choosing the right product.
If you choose the wrong product, you are wasting your time on everything else.

You need to sell a product that has a market. For example, if you were selling buggy whips, you wouldn’t be able to make very much money, unless you found a group of people who wanted buggy whips, and you would also need to find enough of these people to make it worth your time selling online.

Finding your “Target Market”

Your target market is just that group of people who want what you have. You need to find out who wants what you have, and then determine if there is an entire group of people who want it.
For example, if you were selling buggy whips, your target market would be the Amish. But since the Amish make most of their own products, you wouldn’t have much of a market to sell to.
What you need to do is find a product that has a big enough customer base for you to profit off of.

If you have a product that doesn’t have a large market, you can still make a profit off of them, provided there are enough people who want what you have. It doesn’t have to be a large group of people, just enough of them to make you a livable income
Here are some examples of products and their target markets:

  • Electronics. Target market: Just about everyone
  • Food. Target market: Everyone eats. You would have a market with everyone except maybe farmers. And even they tend to buy some of their food
  • Soap— Almost everyone uses soap to wash their bodies with each day.
  • Books—Although many people opt to use electronic devises for finding information, there will always be plenty of people who want to pick up an actual book to read.

Market Saturation

Now, just because a product has a large target market doesn’t mean that it’s the product you should choose to sell. Every single example I gave you above is about a product that has a large target market. However, the market is so large that there is very little room for you to muscle your way in and dominate the market. That’s called “market saturation”, and it’s why so many people fail at internet marketing: they pick a market that is so big, the competition is almost undefeatable.

What you want to do is to pick a product in a market that has a big enough customer base for you to profit from, but in a market that not a lot of people are selling in.

Internet Marketing 101


My story
Hi. I’m Sue. I’m a mother of three, an artist, and an internet marketer. I have the joy and privilege of teaching my children at home, so I am big on self-education. I think to be a success as an educator, you need to teach the student how to teach themselves; asking the right questions; doing their own research.

This is exactly the philosophy I followed when learning how to market on the internet…..self-education.

Many of you are the same way. You scour the internet for hours looking for free (albeit, disconnected) information. Maybe you sign up for numerous free “news”letters, hoping to glean info in between the sales pitch. Maybe you listen to other marketer’s stories and try to emulate their sales style. I understand  your frugalness. With so much free info on the web, why would you ever pay for any? I mean, it’s free. The only problem is, you wind up with files full of marketing puzzle pieces from hundreds of different puzzles; it just doesn’t work. Some seem to “snap together” but in the end, the picture doesn’t look like anything but a big mess.

If you are super intelligent, you will insist that you can crack this marketing code.  Alone. Maybe you are analytical. Or good at sifting through the minutiae to find the bottom line of a system. Well, how is that working for you? If you are like most people (including myself) you may find that pick and choose marketing training can leave you with a lot of loose ends, and disjointed pieces that don’t fit together.
I understand your frustration

I’ve tried it all; the affiliate marketing programs, the “Rich Jerk” guide to wealth, Perry Marshall’s Adwords guide. All of those were pretty good. But there were still gaps.

One thing that most programs never teach you is how to go from point A to point Z., You buy one “all inclusive” marketing course and find out there are a whole bunch of steps to take that they never told you would be needed–like, how to drive real traffic to your website without spending a fortune in time and money; or how Adwords is a ruthless monster that will lop your financial head off if you aren’t seasoned at it. Most of these things cost serious time and money. Something people never level with you about is the necessity of funding your success. To really build any business there are expenses. But most beginning entrepreneurs don’t have a lot of money. So. How does someone like that ever get past the “I can’t afford it” hurdle? I cover all of this and more in my internet marketing program.

In it, you’ll be shown you how to profit immediately, while you learn this “internet thing”. You’ll  learn how to implement a real, tangible system that brings results right now so you can pay the bills while you build your platform for success.

I’ll teach you the basics like finding the right platform to sell your product on. Then, together, we  navigate the trail of finding the best and easiest payment methods that aren’t a hassle.

After that, we’ll cover what are the best marketing systems for producing success. You’ll learn about templates and customization in webdesign, and when it’s okay to be simple when time is limited and you need results now.

From beginning to advanced and the processes in between, I cover what you need to know to get good results.

I know it can be tough in the beginning, with all of the information overload So I take it all and reduce it into bite-sized chunks you can actually process; one concept at a time.

It’s still beefy. Just more complete and thorough, what a person actually needs to know; getting started with webhosting;  domain names, and what you don’t even need, when you first begin. I actually show you how to start making money immediately, so you can buy the webhosting, 800 numbers, etc. Which to avoid. Which to avoid right now, while you work on vital things. How to not be sucked into the squeaky toys and gadgets that these companies tell you that you must have. And how to build traffic that converts into sales. Without any advertising. Really.

What this course will and won’t teach you.

How to use the computer

Let’s face it, if you just bought a computer yesterday, then you have a slight learning curve ahead of you…but not a steep one. Almost every public library offers free beginning computer courses. Bite the bullet and take one, or, pal around my free site for practice.

Note: I absolutely cover the very basics of what you need to know in my internet marketing program, but you’ll feel a lot better if you learn some fluency on your PC prior to signing up.

How to find a product.

Before you order this program, you need to have a definite product to sell. You need to know absolutely what item you are selling. If you sell a service, then you need to have a definite, specific service or suite of services to market.

How to replace your regular income overnight

While I can teach you how to make enough money to help cover your advertising expenses and online business expenses, I can’t guarantee you that you are going to replace your current income from your day job immediately. All of this is going to take time to implement. However, you will learn how to make money as you grow, so that you don’t spend money that you can’t afford, while building your online business.(takes time).

Who this program is NOT for

If you are trying to make money and lots of it immediately, than this program is not for you. It’s for people who want to build a business (which is how you make money). Your focus needs to be on building a profitable business.

If your goal is just to make lots of money, you’ll risk be tempted to be unethical and to rip people off. Instead of focusing on “money, money money”, your goal needs to be to build a profitable online business. That’s called being diligent and it’s the only way to create real, lasting wealth.

The internet is full of spammy people; they have glaring, garish ads that promise to make you a millionaire overnight. And all you have to do is to sell their product that tells others how to make a million dollars overnight, by selling their product (you get the picture).
Internet scams like these have very short shelf-lives because people get tired of them (aren’t you?); and, they’re not ethical, because they aren’t selling a product or an opportunity–just a gimmick. Also, these fly-by-nighters aren’t usually making any real wealth; what they do make is short-lived when Google shuts them down or the government prosecutes them for being unethical.

The truth is, there aren’t any shortcuts, but there are specific, time-effective ways to build a successful online business.

All businesses have certain guide posts that must be followed in order to be successful If you follow these guideposts, you will succeed.

If you are starting out with absolutely no funds, this program will teach you how to become successful.

It is written with the beginner in mind, and takes you to a truly profitable online business. And fills in the gaps for all of the rest of you who have some marketing knowledge but still haven’t made any money online… yet.
I’m the woman who comes along, takes you by the hand, and threads together all that disconnected info you’ve been collecting over the years.

I show you what’s important right now, what to do in what order, in which way,

to get you back on track.

You’ll learn what it really takes TODAY to succeed online
