Knock Knock… Is this Business Open?

Open for Business

You’re ready to buy something from a business near you.
You jump online for a quick search.
First Google…
Then Facebook…

But instead of finding a high quality branded business page, what you find has you wondering:

“Anybody work here…are they still in business???”

The ultimate silent business killer…

How many times do quality prospects have second thoughts when they see
half-finished, or near-abandoned social profiles?

Every business, new or old, needs professional authority and presence in the market.

Poorly executed social media can make a bad first impression that sabotages us!

If you can see the value of improving your social presence, I want to help.

P.S. Social can be one of those areas of marketing where it’s easy to feel lost…

# What should I post?
# How often should I do it?
# Is this really helping me?

And even if you have a solid plan the entire exercise of curating content can be a nightmare…

# Find the right photos…
# Searching for something relevant and valuable to share…
# Trying to get the frequency right…

It can quickly turn into this crazy time sink!

I can see why people do it in little bursts and then just seem to give up.

That’s why I had my team create something to help in 2022…

How to Start Selling Online in 2022 with Ecom Landing Pages

Avoid the hassle of selling on third-party marketplaces. Go from idea to “open for business” in five minutes flat with ecommerce landing pages.

ecommerce

Anyone who’s tried to sell something online knows how intimidating it can be. Most online sales platforms require designing an entire website, setting up complex systems, and spending a lot up front.

Creating a fancy website from the ground up — or relying on costly ecommerce platforms — aren’t
the right solutions. If your time and budget is limited, what you really need is a page that sells what you offer — today and for free.

Good news: We’ve got you covered!

Choose one of our ecommerce landing page templates and easily have a sales page in minutes — seriously. No coding or design required.

We’ll cover what an ecommerce landing page is and offer inspiration on where to get started. Plus, check
out three brand new templates you can use to sell subscriptions and payment plans.

What is an ecommerce landing page?
ECommerce + Landing Page.

Let’s break down these terms.

Ecommerce refers to the buying and selling of products or services online. Transactions occur electronically, but products can be delivered physically or digitally. If you have ever bought anything online, you participated in ecommerce.

Meanwhile, a landing page is a single web page used to drive traffic. Unlike a website’s homepage, a visitor cannot navigate to different web pages. The goal of a landing page is clearly focused on getting a visitor to take one, specific action. Put them together, and you get a landing page that drives people to purchase from you.

Pretty simple.

But how is an ecommerce landing page different from selling on the behemoth ecommerce sites we’ve all
heard of: Amazon, Etsy, and other online marketplaces?

If you’re just starting out, selling on these third-party platforms can be a hassle to set up. Plus, there are
costly fees that are hard to justify if this is your first time selling online.

Thankfully, ecommerce landing pages let you manage costs, test your idea in a low-risk setting, limit
competition, and better control your ability to upsell, cross sell, and drive referrals.

3 new sales page templates

This year, we added three new plug-and-play landing pages to our template gallery that make selling
in minutes easy.

Sell a subscription service
Whether you’re offering a monthly service, looking for ongoing donations, or simply want to showcase three levels of service, this Patreon-like template is for you.

Simply add your own images, details and payment links and you can start earning passive income today.

Offer weekly, monthly, or yearly recurring payments. Want to start charging for your newsletter? Setting up a subscription service? Do you want to offer a yearly plan so your audience can pay in advance?

Use a beautiful recurring payments template to showcase the benefits of your offering, and give your
buyers the option for a weekly, monthly, or yearly recurring payment.

Showcase and sell your product or service

Upload images and add a description of your offering to this simple, clean product landing page and you
can start selling in minutes.

This template is also fantastic if you want to offer a one-off discount, target a specific audience, or sell
a one-off product without extra work.

No matter what you want to sell, ecommerce landing pages are a valuable tool to support your growth.

Upsell on a ‘Thank You’ page

Sending your customers to an ecommerce landing pages after purchase is a great way to cross sell
your other products.

Pro tip: If you have multiple products or services, ‘Thank You’ pages are a great strategy to drive additional sales. People are already aware and engaged with your company after they purchased; if you have something to offer customers at this stage of their journey to get them excited about your brand, now is a great time to do it.

Ecommerce landing page templates.

To help you quickly create landing pages that beautifully display your products and expertly position your services, we created landing page templates proven to sell and ready for you to use.

Is Facebook™ destroying our lives? What’s your thought on this?

Ever notice this?

Everyday as you’re scrolling through Facebook™ reading about the latest drama about your cousin’s new boyfriend (who’s a complete idiot)… in between cute cat pics and rants about the government…

You find yourself liking, commenting and checking out some other articles as you waste time in between appointments, or even in the bathroom (we all do it).

Without you knowing, Zuck has been following you around everywhere you go.

From the ad you click, to the time you were checking out a the score of last weeks’ baseball game, to the time you were searching for the putter Jordan Spieth uses (like that’s going to help your game)…

… everywhere you go, Zuck knows.

Traffic Authority Traffic

 

And that’s the Billion Dollar Zuckerberg Quiz… Quite simply, when you’re online, he’s got his minions finding out WHAT you like and WHERE you’re going so that he can SELL that data to advertisers in the form of interested and targeted eyeballs.

Same with Google™ — you type in what you want and Google™ shows you ads and results from businesses paying premium prices.

This is how Facebook™ and Google™ are able to charge premium prices to businesses to place their ads, in front of YOU — because they know what you’re interested in and where you spend your time… and MONEY… every time you’re online.

Powerful intel, right?

That’s how traffic works. Nothing complicated or “secret” about it.

Now:

What if YOU could make money like Zuck?

Imagine — every time a business owner wants to get eyeballs on their business — YOU get paid.

Imagine being a part of Facebook™ or Google™ or Bing™ when they launched?

Look, maybe you did miss the boat on Google™ and Facebook™ and some of the others.

But that doesn’t mean you have to be left “standing on the sidelines” forever.

Why Businesses Need a Social Media Presence in 2022 and Beyond

Why Businesses Need a Social Media Presence in 2022 and Beyond

Socialmedia

For a business to experience growth, a huge reach needs to be obtained in record time. As the owner of a business, you have to realize that the only way to see success is to reach an audience that outdoes your competition’s ability to do the same.

Social media marketing is one of the best ways to see growth. In fact, in today’s world, you are bound to see failure in your business ventures if you don’t maintain an active social media presence for your company. According to many studies, over 75% of adults use a social media network. Facebook alone has 1 billion active accounts on the site. There are several ways in which an active presence on social media networks can benefit your company. While some of them are pretty obvious, you might wonder how you could have missed the others.

1. Your Reach is Boosted
When you use social media marketing and maintain a social media account for your business with a good following, you ensure that your goods and services are marketed to the entire population of people who use the network. Social media allows you to reach thousands of people every day. Even better, you get to direct your posts towards the audience you want.

2. Your Website can be found easily
Do you use search engine optimization on your website? Well, good for you! This is one way to boost your business ranking on search engines. However, your position on the search results also depends on how much traffic your website experiences. If you can use social media to get more people to click towards your site every day, you increase the traffic statistic for your site. When the search engines see this, they push your site and your company higher up in the rankings every time a potential customer searches for a related product or service.

3. It is the best way to go “viral”
If you don’t know what going viral is, look it up. This is the term given to the phenomenon of a certain post or video on the internet gaining hundreds of thousands of views in a very short time frame. By maintaining an active presence on social media, your followers are able to “share” any post that you make on your page. This makes your advertising visible to anyone who is “friends” with that person on social media. As the chain of sharing continues, you gain higher exposure and views!

4. You can stay in touch with customers
When you make a post on social media for your business, you are able to communicate directly with the people on your page. When they comment on your posts, make their own posts, and message you directly, you get to respond to them immediately. This also adds a personal touch, as live messaging shows that there is a human presence behind the page. Over time, this will boost the loyalty of your customers and bring in new users too!

5. New customers keep on coming
One of the biggest perks of maintaining a social media presence is the way in which all these methods allow you to reach a wider target audience. At one point, you will find yourself experiencing an influx of new customers with no idea how they found out about you!

To finalize all of this…

As you can see, there are countless other benefits to maintaining a good social media presence for your business. Take the right steps today to turn your company into an active one socially. Connect with your customers, gain a higher reach and be a bigger success than ever before!

We can help with your Social Media Posting for a very reasonable price.

Five Free Newbie-Friendly Traffic Methods That Still Work

Gisela BeckermannGetting website traffic is a top priority for every marketer, but for the beginner marketer who doesn’t know all the best ways to get traffic, nor has a big ad spending budget, it is the biggest task they struggle with.

I know there are a lot of new marketers out here who have built their own website or have had one built for them and these are good websites which would be profitable if they could simply get good targeted traffic to it.

So below are 5 different traffic generation methods that beginners can use to get a flow of traffic.

Remember, at the start of your online career, it’s unreasonable to expect a server-melting tsunami of traffic (no matter what any over-hyped sales page says) with one click. Every marketer starts with little amounts of traffic and builds it up gradually. This is true whether they buy traffic or get free traffic.

Generally speaking, imagine getting traffic is like you are a spider building a web. You build one strand at a time, and after many strands, you have a massive web through which people can reach your site.

Too many times, a newbie will try one method, get a few clicks and maybe even a few subscribers but then give up because the results are not coming in fast enough for their liking. Have patience and think of that spider’s web-building analogy!

1. Facebook groups

Find and join groups that are on the same niche topic as your niche website. If you’ve got a blog about rose gardening, join rose gardening groups. You get the picture.

After you have been accepted into the group(s), start by getting involved in the conversations. The aim at the start is to make yourself known and become a familiar face. If you start posting your links on day one you’ll have a very short stay in the group.

After a while you will start to gain credibility and perhaps even some authority if you can contribute useful info on the topic. Once you have some credibility you should start writing posts for the group. Make posts on the FB group feed itself. Then, when you feel you have a good following in the group, post links to content on your site.

If you become a bit famous and hold some authority in those groups, then you can start your own FB group and become the star of your own FB show.

2. Youtube with faceless videos

Most beginners don’t like to get in front of the camera and talk but you don’t need to because there are several types of videos you can make without showing your face or talking.

Explainer videos are perhaps the easiest to start with. Think of some “How to” topics related to your niche. You should go to Google Keyword planner to get a list of some “how to” keyword ideas you can use for video titles. These keyword ideas will also give you an idea what people are searching for. You want to try to use popular keyword terms for your video titles so you can actually get a decent number of views, etc.

The next steps is to create a powerpoint slideshow covering your “5 Steps To Bigger Biceps in 7 days” (or whatever title you choose) and record it with your screen-capture software like Camtasia or the free OBS studio. You don’t even need to speak on the video. People can read. Get some royalty free pics to throw on it as well as some music to go with your slideshow to spice it up a little. There you go! You’ve got your first video to upload to Youtube. Put your website link in the description box under the video while posting it. It’s a good idea to also have a call to action at the end of your video to tell people they can get more info at your website.

3. Instagram

Instagram is a lot of fun and it’s an amazing traffic resource. Here’s how to use Instagram for free marketing without you needing to create content yourself or taking selfies.

Create a new account for your niche. You’re going to be posting a collectionmish-mash of other people’s content (this is all cool if you tag and mention the original creator) so give your account a catch-all type, generic name like “Golfers Worldwide” or “Gym Addicts”. The first thing is to brand up your IG account page. You should create a logo or get one made on Fiverr for $5. Put your website link in your profile.

Now, find the top accounts and influencers in your niche and follow them. Your feed will start to become very full! Then it’s a matter of reposting the popular posts, while giving credit to the creator. You can do this by taking screenshots of the post and doing it all manually, or, to save time, get the Repost app on your smartphone which makes reposting much, much easier. Again, this will be a long-term strategy and it’s a numbers game. The more you post, the more followers you’ll gain. The key to getting the most bang for your posts is to add a dozen or so relevant hashtags to each post.

Wait until you have a decent following before you post your own stuff, and make sure you tell your readers that your link is in your profile because, you know, you can’t post clickable links on IG.

This same basic method can be applied to sites like Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn etc. You’ll be busy if you try to do this on all social media platforms so you might want to stick to just one or two, or get a VA to help you post on a daily basis.

4. SEO & Blogging

Search Engine Optimization aka “SEO” is the term which means making your website optimal so the pages rank high in the Google search results pages. Ultimately, if your page was in the top spot on Google for the keyword “how to make money online” then you’d get thousands of visitors to your site every month. (10K to 100K people search for that term monthly – thanks Google keyword planner 😉 ) And those visitors would be completely free! Amazing right Don’t discount SEO because Google search traffic is up there with the best quality traffic there is.

Here’s how to SEO your site. I highly recommend you use WordPress to run any type of blogcontent rich site. There are so many plugins and themes and WP experts who can work with WordPress, it’s just going to be the best for you.

After you’ve got WP installed on your domain, run through this SEO for WP checklist:

1. Have speedy hosting
2. Install a mobile-responsive theme
3. Install an SEO plugin (i.e. Yoast or All in One SEO plugin)
4. Set HTTPS on your site’s preferred domain (You can get a free SSL cert through Cloudflare)
5. Enable SEO friendly permalinks in WP settings
6. Verify your site with Google Search Console and Submit your XML sitemap
7. DO KEYWORD RESEARCH! (Get a list of keyword suggestions from Google Keyword planner)
8. Write custom URLS for pages & posts when you post to your site (by default WP will use your blog post title as the URL)
9. Use optimized page headings in your post (e.g. sub headings)
10. Use internal linking (link to other posts on your blog from within your post)
11. Use optimized file names for images

Steps 1 – 7 are the initial set up steps. Steps 8 – 11 are the steps to follow for each time you post to your site. Of course, you can do keyword research any time you run out of keywords or want a fresh list to work with.

After having your site up and running with good content, Google should start indexing your pages and the traffic will start to flow. Regular posts to your site will let Google know your site is active and getting new content.

The next thing you want to try to do is get backlinks. If you have Social media profiles, they are the best places to start. One more way, is to do link exchanges with other site owners, which is the next method.

5. Link trading with other marketers

This is a forgotten method that still kicks butt as far as bang for buck free traffic goes. It’s a 10 minute job that can have you getting long term traffic. Here’s how you can set up link exchanges. For this to work best I recommend you have a blog or other content-rich type of site.

First, go join a bunch of newsletters (email lists) in similar niches to yours. You want to read these emails and try to build relationships with them. Reply to their emails and heck, get wild and buy one of their products! Get your foot in the door because these are the guys that you can work with to build your business.

Once you’ve got some communications going and are friends with a few marketers, ask them if they’d like to exchange website links. I.e. You put their site URL on your site and vice-versa. You’ve got to make sure you’ve got a good website because they will not want to link to a site that is utter rubbish. If they say yes, awesome! You can score a link on their site which will send traffic and also help with your SEO, assuming that their site is not rubbish either.

The real gold here though is that you’ve made a contact and friend that you can do other work with in the future. You could do blog post exchanges, banner ad exchanges, email ad swaps or anything you can think of that will be mutually beneficial.

The internet is great for connecting with people easily, but we sometimes overlook building real meaningful personal relationships on here. We’re all too busy doing our own thing to get ahead of the competition and don’t realize that working with others can be fruitful too.

In conclusion, these are 5 of the best free methods for generating website traffic even if you’re just starting out. These are doable for anyone of any skill level. There is nothing too complicated here. As I said earlier, traffic will come little by little, so don’t become discouraged if you don’t get 1000s of visitors on day one. Stick with just one of these methods and you can see traffic start to snowball.
