Top 3 Reasons For You To Change To Email Marketing

In the modern age, it is very easy for us to be distracted. Social media has offered us a large variety of ways for us to be able to place ads and market our products and services to people all around the internet.

Despite this, some people may not find success with their current choice of marketing online. In this article, we will explore the benefits offered by email marketing.

1.) It is still one of the best forms of marketing available online.

McKinesy ranks email marketing over many other forms of marketing available online. ( http://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/marketing-and-sales/our-insights/why-marketers-should-keep-sending-you-emails ) While people may be spending less time everyday checking their emails, people are still more interested in the sales offers that they get off of their email inbox. ( the rate at which e-mails prompt purchases is not only estimated to be at least three times that of social media, but the average order value is also 17 percent higher. )

2.) Capture more sales from your traffic

Email marketing is also able to help you to capture more sales from traffic that you may get. By capturing their email address, you can retain their attention over a longer period. Most people will forget about your site minutes or hours after they have seen your site. But if you can email them and interact with them over days or weeks, you can not only retain a larger amount of your current audience, but you can show more of your brand, and the products that you are offering.

3.) Giving that personal touch

With the information that you collect from emails, you can even collect information that would allow you to be able to send personalized sales offers and messages to your subscribers. By offering them content that is directed at their specific interests, you can offer them a better experience interacting with you.

With your current email database, you have more information that would allow you to be able to get more sales and engage your readers even more.

If you have a standard site, and you have been using a method of traffic to market your products normally, you can change to email marketing and still use your site to market and display pages that would be more relevant and better targeted to that specific email segment.

Regardless of the current ad campaigns that you are running now, Email will easily integrate into your current ads. All you must do is to drive them to a page with an email form that they may use to sign up for more discounts and promotions.

You can get your traffic into your autoresponder by providing the page in a popup on your site. Alternatively, you can have your main page display an email form at the side. Your traffic will see the form and subscribe for your emails.

I hope that you have learned more about the benefits of email marketing, and you can now start writing your first email campaign.

Making Your First Sales Page, For Absolutely Nothing!

Time to start your own site.

 

Build Your Own Site

The landscape of the internet has been changing rapidly for the past few years. Things that could only be done by professionals ten years ago are now becoming more and more user friendly.

With an absolute zero budget, you can get a sales page to yourself! Having a site is now easier, and freer than ever before.

Wix.com is a free digital and web design tool that would allow you to make a page in seconds.

In this article, i will show you exactly how you can get your own page up, and how you can set it to sell a product almost immediately.

 

So, the first step shall begin.

Signing into the first page is relatively easy, all you have to do is access the site, and you will be prompted to sign into Wix with one of the relevant options available to you.

With this, you can now get started on your first free website.

 

Working on your first site.

Wix features a fair amount of themes, example sites, and customization options, everything is available for you to makes use of in your first website even if you have zero technical knowledge. You don’t even need to read the guide in order to use the site builder software that is provided to you in your account.

Please do note that your site will be hosted off of Wix itself, with no need for you to purchase any additional hosting services.

Now lets get started building an actual site for yourself.

1.) Selecting a template

Once you are ready to dive into making your site happen for you, you can start by selecting from one of their many intricately designed templates.

Once you have your template selected, you can now add and change the various elements on your page to suit your design.

Here, we will make a basic one page example of a simple video sales page.

Here is what the end product could look like for you:

In this guide we will teach you how to change texts, images, and add a Youtube video.

 

Adding text

With all Wix related actions, everything starts off of the left column that would serve as the main menu, you can access everything from here and be able to make your first widget appear:

From here, all you have to do is to drag and drop the widget that you want onto the page, and then adjust the positioning and size of the widget.

 

Once you are done with your sizing you can edit the text involved in the widget.

 

Adding an image

Again, it’s pretty straightforward, go to the left column and select the image menu in order to add an image:

Once you have the image selected, you can now change the size of your images.

 

Adding a Youtube video

Youtube videos can also be easily added from the left column:

Once you have added one you can then resize the Youtube video as you please :

 

What’s the catch?

Now you may be wondering, “If Wix is this good, why do traditional hosting companies and web design firms survive? Fortunately, for the other players present in the internet marketing servicees market there has not been a “Wixpocalypse” , or any sign of Wix taking over the market by storm due to a variety of factors.

 

Price

Simply put, be prepared to pay more for your website to be hosted on Wix. In order to move off of their free plan onto paid plans, you will have to make a significantly larger payment to Wix instead of a comparable host with significantly lower pricing:

If you are a seasoned veteran of internet marketing, you can avoid most of the issues presented by Wix, especially it’s pricing. Wix’s combo plan costs almost 3 times as much as the basic plan offered by Bluehost, and is at least twice as expensive as the current plan offered by Hostgator.

 

Control

While Wix is very powerful, a few issues arise from using Wix. Wix does not allow you to fully control your website and does not allow you to move off of their CMS ( Content Management System) without taking a huge hit to your site design and functionality. If you decide to move to a different host all together in the future, you will not be able to keep your site looking and running as it does now as it would be A.) Very difficult to reverse engineer their code perfectly and B.) illegal to do so in the first place.

 

There are plenty of available options that you can use in order to have full access and control over your site, without the fear of having your site damaged by a sudden change of hosts, or by external attacks as you will always be able to have a backup ready.

 

Speed

Wix sites are very, very heavy. On a slower connection they may even fail to load at all. For many on the internet, the time that they spend waiting for the website would have a great influence on whether they would even bother looking at the website. No one wants to spend more than 10 seconds waiting for a website to load, and most users would rather close the tab and look for something else that captures their attention.

 

I hope that this guide has been a good look into the basic functions of how you can get your website up and running at no cost on Wix, with that said, it does come with it’s drawbacks.

 

If you would like a Done For You solution that could make you money without having these issues, you could consider using standard hosting and autoresponder services with our Complete Business Setup. With this, you get a faster, leaner site that you have full control over. You can get the best of both worlds and spend less on your hosting service, while getting a complete website that can generate commissions for you without any of the hassle of having to do it yourself.

 

Using Facebook Ads to generate traffic to your Facebook page

Facebook is the largest social media platform on the internet right now, no other platform has an audience near the size offered by their 1.28 billion active daily users.

Being able to advertise on this platform would let you reach an audience that would provide you with the traffic that you will need to scale up and get you more sales.

If you would like to learn how to market on Facebook with your Business Manager Account instead, please do refer to our other post. This post is a quick guide for you to use your personal account to advertise for your page, instead of a Business Account.

 

1.) Getting started.

Things you will need:

A device with an internet connection
A Facebook account
A Facebook page
Some form of content that you would like to promote
That content, in a post

Once you have these four things, you can get started on marketing on your page.

2.) Boosting your post

The easiest way to have your post promoted is to boost your post to your current likes. However, that would mean that you will have to have some likes of your own. It will also mean that you will target the family and friends of the people that have liked your page. This might not work well as they will belong in a different demographic, and would have completely different interests and priorities.

With that said, you can also boost your post to a chosen demographic of your choice. You are able to select a post on your page that you would like to promote. Promoting to a chosen demographic is the superior option, for a variety of reasons.

In this post we will cover how exactly you can boost your post, and get :

 

And then select the different targeting for your current audience:

 

You can then set the budget and the duration of your ad:

 

Once you are done, you can start to run your advertisement.

3.) Choosing your audience

You can also choose the audience that you want to target:

 

The easiest way to get an post up and running as an ad is to promote it directly to the people that have already liked your page, and their friends.

However, you can also choose the audience that you would like to target. you can select the gender, age and location of the audience that will be targeted.

This would allow you to get your ad to the people that matters the most to you. You can get more sales, or higher quality likes that would allow you to be able to have a better engagement rate with your audience.

 

Well, now that you know how exactly you can run your ads, you can start your very own ad campaign, in just 15 minutes.

 

Marketing On Twitch: How You Can Market On One Of The Newest Platforms On the Internet

Ever wonder what kids these days are watching?

It was on a normal Sunday that I saw that my kids were watching a video on their Ipad; they were busy trying to watch someone playing Minecraft. Instead of playing the copy of the very same game on their ps4!

It was fascinating, children and teenagers would rather spend time watching people a game, than to play the very same game themselves now.

And that is how I was introduced to Twitch.tv.

The leading streaming service for gamers.

 

Twitch is a streaming service that you can use, it works similarly to YouTube. To get started recording on Twitch, all you need is a PC, Xbox one, or PS4 to get started.

For the two consoles in the list, streaming is extremely easy. All you have to do is to download the app, login, and the app will do the rest for you. It is a simple, nearly one click process to get your content up on a stream on Twitch on your game consoles.

However, it is slightly more difficult for you to stream your games on PC, you will have to use a reasonably powerful PC, have a capture card/ Nvidia Shadowplay compatible graphics card, and the knowledge to set up your streaming software.

But for this article, we will be looking at the methods that you can use to advertise on Twitch.

 

Why Twitch?

Twitch has an incredible, engaged, and youthful user base. The age of the average Twitch streamer is between 21-35 years old. With a mostly male demographic using their services to stream their content.

Gaming Bias

The bulk of the content that is hosted on Twitch would be mostly gaming related, or games.

The service is geared towards a gaming community, and has various memes and inside jokes that the general public wouldn’t understand, even if they happen to be in that very demographic. Niche products that are gaming related, or cater towards the demographic in this age range would have an easy time marketing on Twitch.

 

High Traffic Quality

The design of Twitch, as a platform, encourages it’s users to be active, people are interacting with each other constantly in the Chat Room, and they are able to interact with the host of the stream as well. The community forms a hivemind social network, as a large number of users communicate in the chat room at a very rapid pace.

Channels like “Twitch Plays Pokemon” allow the chat room to control a full game of Pokemon, for example.  And some interactive games, like Saltybet, which is a virtual currency betting game have been made possible with Twitch.

 

So how can you market on Twitch?

There are many ways of marketing directly and indirectly on Twitch, and we will cover them here.

Marketing with Twitch

The easiest way to market on Twitch would be through Twitch themselves. they do offer a variety of static and dynamic visual ads. One of the main issues with using banner and video ads on Twitch is the presence of Adblock. Adblock is able to prevent your ads from reaching the traffic that it should be reaching.

Influencer Marketing

One of the next options is Influencer marketing, you can directly contact the company, organization or individual and ask for them to insert a promoted segment for you, in exchange, you offer them some form of sponsorship.

Companies like Machinima, or various smaller gaming teams will usually take a sponsorship from gaming related sponsors, but it is possible for such companies to take sponsorships from bigger brands like Levis, or promote other individual products and services.

Content Syndicate

Smaller channels are usually unable to take a sponsorship due to their lack of viewers, or some other inability to meet their possible prospective sponsor demands.

Commonly seen are teams, or groups of gamers that have banded together into a single channel in order to consolidate themselves for either commercial reasons, or competitive ones. Advertising with such syndicates would be easier, as you would only have to interact with one representative, instead of multiple individuals in order to access the same amount of traffic.

Content Creation

For some marketers, it would be easier to create their own content on Twitch themselves. While this is usually the case for larger groups, it is possible for anyone to be able to make the content that they would want to, especially if they own a PC.

If you have a reasonably powerful computer, you can use streaming software like OBS to feed footage from your camera, and your screen to Twitch. While Twitch is mostly for gamers, there are all forms of content on Twitch as well.

Here are just two examples of the kind of content you can find on Twitch.

 

So now that you know how to make advertise on the internet, you can start using Twitch to generate the traffic that you need.

You could even use Twitch as source of traffic to your sales or squeeze page. By making your own content, and placing your links, you can get people interested in your product or service without spending any money on traffic generation.

I hope that this article helps you get  started with marketing on Twitch, good luck!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Setting Up Your First Facebook Advertisement

Running Ads

If you are more interested in running your own ads, you can refer to this post instead.

Lets get started!

Setting Your Goals

The first step, once you have gone into your ad manager, is to select the objective that you would like to use. Everyone has different needs, and Facebook recognizes this by providing an accurate, targeted traffic solution, instead of the one size fits all marketing done on most forms of traditional media.

Now you must decide what you are looking for, some people are more interested in driving traffic to their pages, and others are more interested in getting more leads that are interested in purchasing their products.

With additional E commerce options, you can have an easier time marketing your Shopify store. But for this example we will assume that you want to drive traffic to an external site.

Next, you will be required to provide some basic information about yourself.

For Facebook, they may have the option for you to add a pixel to your page, but for now, we will focus on getting your ad up and running.

Under your ad set, you can now add a URL for people to have a destination when they click on your ad, it would not make sense if your ad was completely made, and successfully run by Facebook, if there was no destination URL for your traffic.

Now you will be able to create an audience for your ad.

The ad will need some basic targeting in order to properly function, without it you will not be able to have an ad that with reasonable performance.

Imagine trying to market soft toys to a bunch of hardened middle aged bikers, it will not end well. Before you select your audience, you need to consider the product or service that you are trying to promote, and how that will interact with the audience that you have chosen to market to. Trendier products ill do well with teenagers and young adults, while older working adults may prefer to have products that would suit their individual tastes.

This is where Detailed targeting would come in handy. With detailed targeting options you can choose the niches that you want to target, or ignore. You can learn more down below.

Basic Demographic Based Options.

For your basic options, you can now edit your audience location, age, gender, and known languages.

This is great if you are targeting some nearby geographical location. For example, a bar in a hip part of Southern California has no need to advertise to the east coast. They would rather focus on the Millennials that happen to live within the same state, or within a short distance from their physical location. Gyms, bars, clubs and local businesses in general prefer to market to people who live nearby because no one will travel a distance to have a meal or use services that they can get nearby.

With detailed targeting you can do even more. Using the old example, the bar can now target people that like beer brand pages, craft beer pages,  beer related interests and pages, and more.

You can also edit the placements of your ads as well; you can have a ad that is able to appear only one position.

Doing so will limit the number of times your ad will show, so it may not always be a good idea.

 

Ad Settings

You can now edit the aesthetics of your advertisement. As your ad will have various possible designs, you will have to go through the ads and find the ad design that works the best for you.

After that, you can change the sales copy on your ad, and then provide Facebook with your payment information.

Don’t forget to check your budget, and the way you will be charged for your ad before getting it to run.

Now that you know how exactly ads are made on Facebook, you can now get started by making your own ad, and running it.

Getting Your First Facebook Page Up

In this post, we will look at what you need to do in order to get your first Facebook page set up and running!

 

There are two ways to make a Facebook page, you can either use your personal account, or use a Business Manager account.

Creating a Facebook page from your personal account is easy, all you need to do is to get into your personal Facebook account, and go over to the pages tab.

After that, all you have to do is to click on it, and you will see a tab for you to get started on creating your page.

If you have a Business Account, you can make a page that is associated with the business account that you are using.

There are a few benefits to this, firstly it prevents people from seeing the pages that you control if they manage to see your pages in your personal account, if you were to accidentally forgot to log out of a public computer, or if you have lost a device with access to your personal account.

This will not prevent them from logging into your Business Manager if you have logged into your account, and they will be able to access your pages. However the added layer of having a business account makes it harder for them to access pages that you control if they didn’t know about your Business Manager.

 

To start, click on your business settings:

From here, you can add a new page:

From here, you can make a new page:

Once you have selected the option to make a new page, you will be asked to select the category of the page that you would like to make, they will also ask for your page name.

After that, hit “Create Page” to make your page a reality.

And you are done.  This is what you should see:

Now, all you need to do is to add your profile picture and your banner, it is very easy to do so. All you have to do is to click on the profile or the banner picture, and upload the relevant images to your page.

You can now add more information to your page. Doing so will give people a better impression of your page, no one wants to land on a page that has no content, no information, and no basic description of what the page is about.

Look at the professional pages out there, they are content rich, and provide their audience with some reason to stick about. On any social media platform, content will bring in the traffic that you are looking for.  Now that you have your page, you can start to fill your page with content and start marketing on the internet.

 

In the next post, we will look at how you can get your first ad running on Facebook!

Getting your own Facebook Business Manager account

Minding Your Facebook Business

Facebook is one of the newest methods of advertising on the internet. It provides internet marketers a great tool to venture into advertisements online, as the cost per click is reasonably low, and the features available for the users are really powerful.

There is absolutely no cost in having a Facebook page of your own, regardless of the actual use of the page. You could make a page for your pet dog if you liked.

Of course, that is not what we are looking at. We want to get a page for you to be able to promote your products and services.

Regardless of the industry that you are in, you can have a page that advertises your product or service to the masses for free.

The Business Manager is a great way for you to control all your accounts without having to use your personal Facebook account to manage your page. You are also able to control multiple pages and advertisements in a more organized page.

You can also give other accounts power over your pages and your Business Manager, with this, you can run your business without the hassle using one account, and having to hand over control over that account to anyone that may need to access your pages or ads.

 

Getting Your Account

If you have a Facebook account, you can save a bit of work. You will need to have a Facebook personal account in order for you to make a Facebook business account to be created, but it is quite easy to register for a Facebook personal account here: https://www.facebook.com

Setting an account takes seconds; you can even make a page easily!

 

Getting Into Your Business Manager

Now that you have gotten a Facebook account, you can proceed by creating your own Facebook Business Manager: https://business.facebook.com/

To make your account, you will need to be logged into your personal Facebook account, you will now have to create the Business account.

After which, you would be asked to name your business, if you do not have a business name you can just use your name to apply for your Business Manager.

After that, you will get to your main landing page:

 

Here, you can have access to the various pages made under your Business account; this is also separate from the personal pages that you have made.

With your Business Manager account, you can now take a look at the two main features:

1.) Making and managing pages.

2.) Making and running advertisements.

We will cover the rest in a different post, but for now you can take a look at your Business Manager.

Learning From YouTube: 3 Tips On How To Capture Your Audience’s Attention!

Over the past few years, advertising on various traditional forms of media has been declining. People are less and less willing to sit through boring TV commercials for reruns, and listen to the same top 40 hits of the year on radio.

Platforms such as YouTube and Dailymotion have been steadily growing in size and increase their influence, and more and more companies are spending on advertising through such media channels.

Over time, some YouTubers developed huge subscriber bases through the use of strategies, here are three of them.
1.) Good titles with good content

YouTube is full of titles that have no link to their videos, it is common for a video to have one, and then proceed to be absolutely irrelevant from the topic discussed in the title of the video, older members of the audience especially dislike having to watch something that was completely unexpected from what they had expected when they clicked on the thumbnail.

If you can use good titles whilst providing good content your audience would be initially attracted without feeling cheated. It would allow for your content to access a larger audience and get more views.

Straightforward, zero fluff titles are great, things like “5 ways to lose a pound a week!” or: “3 days to that awesome tan!” Work great, it tells the viewer what they can expect, and how many points there are.

It’s definitely helpful to your marketing if you can make good videos and get people to view them.

 

2.) Good images provide a good impression
There are plenty of guides that can help you make great thumbnails happen.

The thumbnail is the first thing anyone sees before clicking on a YouTube video, the actual description of the video comes after your audience sees the thumbnail.

If you can successfully make a good video thumbnail, you can even attract the attention of people who don’t even know how to read your video description!

Images that are relevant to the video title are really important, videos about weightlifting have big, strong weightlifters on their thumbnails, and videos about weight loss have a nice slim girl gracing the thumbnail.

No further explanation is needed if your thumbnail does its job.
Once they have clicked on the video, and have started watching it, you’ve successfully gotten a new viewer.

 

3.) Creating targeted content
Your Audience needs some reason to stick around, once they have clicked on your video, it’s time for your content to shine.
In the span of the next few minutes, you should achieve the objective of your title, educate them, entertain them, and compel them to stick about.

Human attention spans are quite short, most videos are barely five minutes long, and a fair amount of people do not even watch the first twenty seconds of the videos that they click on. Most videos are between one to three minutes for that reason.

So, if you can make content that would compel people to stay, and watch most of your video, you can have more time to be able to market to them as well. And, with greater time, you can find that your audience may grow, as your videos become more relevant and gains more value with your visitors.

I hope this article on learning from YouTube, and the 3 tips presented can help you achieve more views.

 

3 Essential Online Business Tools That Are Neglected By Newbies

An online business is just like any offline business. You need a space or a shop to operate your business. You need to pay rental fees, electricity and water bills in order to run the business. Similar to offline business, there are some essential necessities that you cannot do without in your own online business.

Domain Name

The Domain Name is the address of your website. This is your brand name and your service users and customers will identify you by your domain name.

For example, if you run a pet store, you would like something your customers can remember in some capacity.

In addition, it also needs to describe your business in some way that can prove to help people instantly recognize what it is that you actually do, without having to look at your site, in this case it would be beneficial to consider what you actually do for your customers.

So when you are choosing a domain name, you should spend some time and effort in researching for a domain name that is suitable or optimal for your service or product that you are providing.

It may be also good to include keywords in your domain name.

Sometimes, the domain name that you desire may already be purchased by someone else and you will have to offer a higher price to buy the domain name. If that is the case, and if you are willing to pay for that domain name, then go ahead and make the purchase if you think its worth the money.

If not, search for another domain name or extension that the domain name is available in, these alternatives are not the most optimal, but it would allow you to get a name that is very similar to what you want, modern domain names may also describe your business in greater detail, or may be relevant to your business. something like .art, or .tech may be more relevant to you if you run businesses that are relevant to this.

You may be able to get a free domain name from some websites, but their extensions usually do not end with .com due to the popularity of .com domain names.

We highly recommend you to get your domain names at http://www.getyourdomainnames.com/

Web Hosting

Web hosting is another basic necessity in any online business. Your website needs to be hosted on a web host!

Not having a web host for your site is like a shop with no physical place to set up up store. This is like shop’s physical space. However, many newbies are unwilling to invest into web hosting.

You need to own the web hosting account in order to truly own the website.

If you do not own web hosting, any website that you claim to have can be taken away from you easily since you have no control over it.

The service provider should be trustworthy so as to prevent that from ever happening, it would be devastating for you to wake up and find that your site is completely inoperable, you could be losing money for every second that your site doesn’t show up due to a bad host or slow servers.

Bluehost is one of the best web hosting providers that we highly recommend, you can get it from this link: http://www.professionalhosting.com/

Autoresponder

The autoresponder has become a very important tool in every internet marketers’ arsenal. However, many newbies dread the idea of investing in an autoresponder, especially since they incur a monthly fee for their services to be provided to you.

Yes, there are free ones out there but they are not good or professional enough. They can shut down whenever they want and they tend to contain a lot of advertisements.

They usually also have some form of limitation for the list size, or there is a direct limit on the number of available emails on a daily, weekly or monthly limit. Some popular autoresponders have their own free or trial accounts for new customers to try out, but those have limits too.

If you are looking to build your online business for long term, then you do not want to be at the mercy of a free autoresponder service running away with your list, and possibly using your list to generate profits of their own, in your stead.

We recommend that you get Aweber. We also use this autoresponder service and you can get it here: http://autorespond.com/

Even though some of the tools can be obtained free of charge, it is best that you possess ownership them in order to truly own the business. If your website is built on a sub domain and you do not own the hosting and domain name, the website does not truly belong to you.

Think of these tools as investments rather than just as additional costs. These are the very basic tools that allow you to build your online business and to make money online, without them you have no capacity to conduct business in the desired capacity that you prefer.
