6 Ways To Grow Your Online Business

So you have an online business and you don´t have any idea how to grow it? In this post, I am going to give you 6 ways to grow your online business.
Much of the time, we are not doing the right things with our time (80/20 principle). This post is to give you some small hinges that swing big doors for your income.
Here are SIX ways you can make sure you are growing your online business.
1. Raise the target rate in which you want to grow
This means INCREASE your expected goal. Think bigger and shoot for a larger outcome. Think big and became bigger.
2. Provide new forms of value
Innovate and shift what you are doing to provide more transformations to people who trust you. Invest in yourself and find out how to serve your existing customers in a new way.
3. Expand geographically
If your service or product target only people from one geographical region, probably it is the time to start targeting people from other countries too, or you can think doing it in different languages, like Spanish.
4. Create new products
Do you already have ONE product that works? Then now is the time to think about what’s “next” in the mind of your customer. Think VALUE LADDER as Russell Brunson describes in his book,Dotcom Secrets.
5. Launch into new channels
Have you established one channel of distribution that is predictable (i.e. Facebook ads)? Then expand to another social media platform to extend your influence.
6. Reach for new customers in your niche
Every vertical has several “versions” of your customer avatar. For example, if you sell to insurance agents…there are new agents, established agents who have plateaued, broker-owners with large teams, etc…all who have different needs and problems. Go get another one of those customers with a new product (refer back to #4).
Let me know if you have questions about these. I know they are pretty straightforward, but they can require modification based on experience, industry or knowledge level.
If you don’t have an online business yet you can grab this step by step blueprint on how to start an online business.

5 signs that you’re not a good affiliate marketer

This post will make some people feel offended and if you’re the kind of the person who gets offended easily please don’t read this because I am going to cover the brutal truth about 5 signs that you`re not a good affiliate marketer.

5 signs that you're not a good affiliate marketer

In my online adventure, I interact with different kind of people every day and when I ask them what they do for living they tell me that they are affiliate marketers or influencers, business owners, mentors or something fancy, but after looking at their social media activities I realize that in reality, they are none of those or at least they are bad at them.

So if do you consider yourself an affiliate marketer, I created a checklist of 5 signs that you’re not a good one, this is not to scare you or something, it is a reality check that if you find one or two things that you do on the list, probably it is the time to change that.

5 signs that you’re not a good affiliate marketer

1. You don’t remember when you made your last sale

We are into affiliate marketing in order to help people and make money. So when do you know that you’re a proper affiliate marketer? When you start making sales.

Even if you’re making some sales but they are too far between them, this means there is something wrong with your approach and it is the right time to change.

2. You spend more than you make

As I said above, your aim as marketer or entrepreneur is to help people and make money in the process. Unless you’re running a charity, you should be making more money than you spend.

Another way to look at it is that how many products you bought this month? and how many products you sold? if you buy many products that the products you sell you’re not running a profitable business and it is time to change some things.

3. You don’t build your tribe

A tribe means people who are interested in what you have to say, most big-time affiliate marketers they have a huge following online.

In order to become a successful affiliate marketer you will need to do the same, you can start building your followers by just starting to build your email list, blog readers, social media followers, for sure it will take time but you need to build that.

4. You spend a lot of time on social media

Being an affiliate marketer and working from home with your computer can be confusing to some people, they confuse between doing a productive work and wondering in social media. Most so-called affiliate marketers they spend the entire day scrolling in social media feeds and hoping to catch on new shine object and sending unsolicited messages. I am sorry to burst your bubble but that is not marketing, it is wasting your time and spamming.

Good affiliate marketers they spend their time making things happen,  new product, researching for a new market, learning a new skill, preparing a content etc.

5. You consume content more than you produce

Another sign that you’re not a good affiliate marketer is that you consume content more than you produce, let me put this in this way, you wake up, you open your computer and start reading emails from zillion persons who want to sell you something, you go to facebook you do the same, you go to youtube and you do the same. At end of the day, you send email to two safelists and you count as a productive day (i used to do this by the way).

Yes, it is good to read other people contents, especial who can teach you something but you need to chose 2 -5 people who you will follow and ditch all others.

You should follow the principle of learning, apply then earn. In those 2-5 affiliate marketers, you follow learn something they teach and actually apply it and you can earn from it by teaching other or by applying what you learn to grow your online business.

Solution

If you have one of the 5 signs above means you’re in trouble but the good thing is that I have a solution for you, actually, I have two depending on what do you need to do right now.

The 4 steps to success as an affiliate

The 4 steps to success as an affiliate

#1: Choose the right products and niche to promote

The first step to affiliate success is to choose a right niche and product to promote, a niche is the marketing you want to serve. These are people with problems and you as an affiliate your job is to find a product that can solve this problem.

#2: Target the right people — the ones who will buy

After selecting a right market and product then you need to present it to the right people if you want to sell something the smart idea would be to sell to people who what it and who can afford to pay for it. Target them with the right choice of keywords, and the right kind of content.

#3: Build a solid funnel that moves people towards a sale

A sales funnel is nothing but a series of web pages. These web pages are arranged methodically one after another, interlinking with each other.  If the traffic passes through the pages, they transform from random prospect to qualified leads and finally, to buyers. Say the right thing at the right time to build their interest in a product.

The Secret to Winning at Affiliate Marketing

For many newbies affiliate marketing seem to be a never-ending battle, you need to build a website, squeeze pages, build a brand, build a social media following and other dozens of things in order to be successful.

Yes, all these things are important but for me, if you really need to succeed in affiliate marketing business you need to have an autoresponder and tracking software.

I know in my tools and resource page I list a lot of them and yes all of them are necessary for your business growth, but if you are under strict budget and you just need to invest the minimum them that will be my recommendation.

The Secret to Winning at Affiliate Marketing

An auto responder

In order to build your business, you need a squeeze page and somewhere to host your contact list, luckily most good autoresponders come with a free squeeze page builder, I know it is not the best but if you put a little bit of effort you can come out with a decent squeeze page.

At this moment I use three autoresponder services, Convertkit, Aweber and Getresponse and all of them they have a free page builder.

So by just having a good autoresponder, you solve a lot of problems like a page builder, hosting and domain name. when you make some cash you can invest in those tools later.

If you’re just starting out I think Aweber is the best option, you can get it here: https://passiveincomejet.com/aweber

Tracking software

I studied control engineering, and in school my teachers they taught me that you can’t control something that you can measure.

That same logic applies to the affiliate marketing business, you can grow if you can’t measure, and the only way to measure is to track everything you do online.

Luckily you autoresponder can track for your clicks and open rates, your affiliate market place can track your sales, by this way you will know if your marketing effort is giving you the results you want or not.

There are a lot of free trackers out there but my most recommended will be bitly, if do you want a very advanced tracking software that pros use in their marketing then clickmagic in the solution.

 

Final words

The real secret on making it in affiliate marketing is building your list and tracking your results, see what is working and what does not work, cut the things that do not work and do more of the things that do work, rinse and repeat and you will be successful.
