It's a cruel world out there. Hundreds of thousands of hard-working Americans lose their job every year. Tragically, ordinary people get disillusioned by sleeping on the idea of a "dream job" when they could cash-in tremendously from the exponential growth of e-commerce in the "information age"!
You can be up and running your own lucrative home-based business with very small capital in a matter of days! Nowadays, you don't even have to develop your own products to flourish.
You don't even have to be an expert in any subject, once you are ready to study how casual people achieve their goals faster than ever with a rock-solid marketing plan!
Here's a characteristic example, on how anyone can start an autopilot Internet business - let's scrutinize some critical elements that will help you understand the gigantic potential of Internet marketing:
You put-up a direct-response website that caters information for a specific industry; whatever that industry can be - you'd always deliver digital information on a subject in the form of ebooks. I am talking about a topic that is in-demand and people would gladly pay for it.
There are a plethora of money-making ideas when it comes to promoting informational products, which are ideally delivered in the form of ebooks or even CD's.
Just use a magnificent online researching tool like WordTracker (see http://web-site-promotion.gr/wordtracker) and you'll come-up with literally hundreds of prolific keywords that people use to search online with their credit cards ready to submit orders and inflate your bank account automatically!
Using WordTracker I have "unearthed" several profitable industries, by conducting a few hours of intensive research. In fact, you cannot afford to not methodically use technological means before launching any business.
Another sure-fire source of discovering what sells online is... forums! Just use any search engine to research for a particular topic that meets your interests, add the "forum" keyword and see exactly what people discuss, identify with their problems and offer your "digital solution"!
Next thing, is developing a direct-response website that is gives away a free report in exchange for your prospects' e-mail address. Just add some related articles to show-off your expertise; offer the free report in trade for email addresses and then... follow-up with the "complete solution" with a killer sales letter and a digital product.
Once you start building a targeted, ever-growing mailing list, your income geometrically grows. All you need is to stick with a topic that motivates you and has a "starving market" that has the money and willingness to purchase your *solution*.
If you can't find products to sell, fear not. There are hundreds of informational products that grant you full resale rights with every purchase.
A fine source is http://cyber-software.com - you can find "instant products" to market in the form of software. The best part is that these products are offered for a very low investment and you reap 100% of the profits.
For example, hundreds of people search online for "lost relatives", old schoolmates or records of employees. You just go and buy the resale rights of the related software, set-up a website, trade some links and buy some ads (use WordTracker for researching with amazing precision the keywords) and you're in business.
Now to give your income a momentous boost, repeat this process with several other digital products.
By the time you make your first money, re-invest the funds in other businesses to multiply your profits and create "multiple sources of income".
Deploying this strategy you repeatedly build multiple income streams plus gain priceless experience in the long run!
Accepting credit cards for your products is critical. Go to StormPay (http://traffic-engine.net/stormpay) once you have the products and website ready to go; now you're in business making money passively, without lifting a finger! Your customers pay for the product and money gets transferred to your bank account (or by checks) easily and automatically!
The easiest way to sell online and admittedly the most guaranteed is marketing informational products. There's no other good you can offer to a "starving market", than informational products; they are easy to develop and won't cost you a penny to duplicate them to infinity (opt for ebooks, software, audio courses...).
Whether you sell 10 or 10000 of digital products, your "manufacturing costs" remain the same - a flat zero expense!
I have coined a fantastic system for receiving thousands of visitors without advertising; just by giving away free reports!
Refer to www.traffic-engine.net for details. The money-making impetus that the Internet offers to home based business owners is unrepeatable. You are not limited by geographical location. You don't need to stock products. The curbs of a regular job do not bind you.
You only need:
- In-demand information products that cater to a "fertile market".
- A direct-response website that gathers email addresses.
- A system to follow-up with prospects offering back-end products that compliment your "flag ship" product.
- Low-cost advertising and a viral marketing mechanism to generate referrals.
- Replicate this process with other industries and "clone" your income!
Can you see the tremendous potential of running a home-based business? Ok, if you just start out your online business from scratch, you'd need to master a few jacks of the trade to become successful.
Astutely, now you have just "sniffed the basic formula" for online success. You need a blueprint - a step-by-step guide to bump your wings.
So, I highly recommend going to http://traffic-engine.net to model a prototype methodology that will help you understand exactly how the "system" works.
You won't need to become a sales-letter dynamo. There's no need to make your own products either; just the creed to duplicate a "ready-made" marketing plan.
Then, entrench with the techniques and follow the preliminary steps we just outlined and in a couple of weeks you're in business - even on a strictly limited budget.
