Creating a Sales Funnel in 4 Easy Steps

Not everyone is a big business with tons of resources. Many of us are small home based businesses – some are mom and pop bloggers offering single products or services, some of us run a website that offers just one product, and yet no matter how small our business we should be creating a sales funnel, because a sales funnel will attract potential customers by giving away free items or offering low cost items, and then convincing those prospects to sign up to your mailing list.

Once you have their contact information you can start to build a relationship so that once they are ready to buy they come to you. When you offer your prospects, a range of products that are at different price points you can build trust and make it easier for them to eventually spend the money on the more expensive product or service. Mailing List You have your large mailing list of potential customers that you have been building and gradually you build paying customers out of this.

Let’s have a look and break this down.

Attract New Leads This is where you find a way to attract clients to your site that would be interested in your products or services:

* Meet potential clients through social media – Facebook, Twitter,  Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, etc.

* Get your company mentioned in a press release or do your own press release and submit * Begin to publish interesting and unique articles on other sites

* Post blog entries offering advice, tips, tricks, information, etc.

* Ensure that the search engines are picking up your content Offer Free Products or Services Potential clients are hesitant to give you contact information, but when you give them something free in exchange they are much more willing to share their contact information. You can offer a free:

* Audio recordings

* Newsletters

* White papers

* Mini e-books

* One free teleseminar

* Free consultation

 

Offer Entry Level Low Cost Products You should offer a number of low cost products that show your potential clients your level of expertise without a large investment.

They are much more likely to do this. Then over time, you can sell higher priced products as they come to trust you and build a relationship with you.

This could include:

* E-books

* Workshops

* Video series

* Audio series

* Consulting or coaching

* Membership sites

There you have it. You have moved prospects down the funnel to potential paying customer. It’s a process that works extremely well, so why not take advantage of it. These are just a few ideas of how create sales funnels

Surveys That Actually Pay

There are many survey websites all over the internet. Most scream “Scam!” and should be avoided at all costs. In order to make a decent side income online by completing surveys, you need to find a trusted website that is reliable. One of the top survey sites online is “Harris Poll Online”. It  has been around since 1963. You cannot last in this industry if you’re a fly-by-night operator. The longevity of this site is proof that it works and does not scam unknowing customers. Completing surveys for money has been around for years and shows no signs of waning. There will always be companies that need surveys to ascertain buyers’ intentions and get feedback. They need people to do these surveys and are willing to reward you as long as you take some time to complete a survey. Thousands of people are making a decent side income from doing surveys. While you won’t be raking in 5 figure sums, even a few hundred dollars will be a big help to many people. After all, completing a survey is much easier and faster than any other type of internet marketing that involves complex funnels and technical know-how.

Best Businesses From Home

In finding the best home based business for someone who dreams of being an entrepreneur, there is no hard and fast list of “bests.”

One entrepreneur’s best home based business idea is another entrepreneur’s worst. So much depends on what that business owner-hopeful enjoys doing, knows how to do, and has some of the resources already in place for.

Other considerations in determining the best home based business are what the desired market will bear – what the competition is, and how saturated the market is.

What Are Your Interests?

The best way for someone who wants a home based business to start is to determine what she or he loves – what she looks forward to doing, what makes the time fly by for him, what she would gladly spend many hours of every day accomplishing.

The next step is for the owner-to-be to assess his or her training, skills and knowledge of various industries. Putting the dream list with the skills list should indicate some crossover.

Those things that end up on both lists are great indicators of the best home based business type for this business owner to-be. If, for example, a veterinarian’s assistant is tired of making very little money working for someone else, braving the 30 minute crawl along the highway commute, but really loves those horses that her employer cares for. She might well be a great candidate for a riding school proprietorship, a horse farm, or a grooming facility.

Once the industry and anything more specific in the way of products or services has been determined for the best home based business idea, the work is not done.

The business owner has to determine that the business will make money. Questions the entrepreneur has to ask himself are “Who will be my customers? Why will they choose my service? How often will they need my services – what will make them repeat customers? Who is the competition? How can I vary my services from the competition – i.e., what might be my niche? And, what should I charge for my services (based on what others are charging in the market area)?

Part of determining what to charge is determining expenses that must be paid to stay in business. Once the entrepreneur determines the price that will be competitive she or he must find out if that asking price will bring in a profit.

If the price that must be placed on the product to make a profit after expenses is too high to be competitive in the market the choices are to change the market or change the product. If it doesn’t make the company money, it’s not the best home based business.

7 Tips To Work At Home Successfully

workathomeCongratulations! and welcome to the fast-paced world of entrepreneurship. While there is a lot to learn, your effort will be worth it. The thrill of growing your business, the freedom and flexibility to set your own hours, and the possibilities of ever-increasing financial rewards are all wonderful reasons to start your home based business.

Now that you’ve decided to start your business, you might be wondering “How can I get it off to the strongest possible start?” These seven tips will help:

1) Set up a separate working space in your home. It doesn’t matter if this is a small bedroom, one part of the garage, or a corner of the living room. The important thing is to have some space that you can designate as your working area. This will give you the space and room you need to craft your dream.

2) Stock your working space with materials. This sounds basic, perhaps, but one underlying element of success is that you have easy access to the tools, materials, and other resources you need. Gathering everything close by also keeps you from wasting time searching for it, so this step can be considered a time management strategy, too.

3) Speaking of time management, your third step is to define the parameters of your business. What days and hours will you work? When will you market? When will you provide services or products to clients? How will you keep all of this straight?

4) Balance action with planning. One of the most common pitfalls to successful entrepreneurship is getting too caught up in action without enough planning. Stated another way, this means that you confuse “being busy” with “working on important projects.” The best approach is to plan your next couple of goals and then work backwards to create step by step action plans to reach them. Once you have the plan, then it’s time to take the action.

5) Network like crazy. One of the fastest ways to grow any business is to make connections with other people. Be sure to share your passion and enthusiasm with others at every opportunity. Let people know who you are and what you offer. Remember, people can’t buy if they don’t know you’re selling.

6) Present a professional image. If you want to be treated professionally, present a professional image. Set up a separate bank account for your business. Install a separate phone and fax line. Create professional marketing materials. Be courteous and pleasant in all your customer facing interactions. Basically, be someone people want to do business with.

7) Automate your business as much as possible. Granted, you are just one 2016-07-30_1535person (right now) and might have a lot of extra time to take care of all the details. This might work for now, but won’t work into the future as you get busier and busier. It’s best to set up automatic systems and processes right from the start to free up your time to concentrate on the most profitable activities.

These seven tips will get your home business started (and growing) in the right direction.

5 Reasons Why You Need A Work-At-Home Schedule

2016-07-30_1535One of the attractions of working at home is the vision of freedom it invokes — no time clock, no time sheets, and no one to account to for how you spend your time. Yes, it is an attractive proposition, but like so many attractive propositions there is a heavy downside — you are likely wasting a lot of time.

My husband spends time every day filling out these large spreadsheets to account for his day. He works for a large engineering company and his day often encompasses work on a variety of projects for different clients. He loathes the activity and I have always dismissed it as a waste of time — that is until my home business recently took off and I realized there simply wasn’t enough hours in the day to accomplish all my goals.

I now have my own spread sheet and agenda for the day and I have improved my productivity and reduced my stress immeasurably. If you don’t think you need a schedule for your home business, then think again — and read on.

After a spate of relatively unproductive days when my “To Do” list seemed to grow exponentially every time I looked at it I knew something had to change.

Granted I was going through a rough patch. My home business was experiencing growing pains and taking up more than the usual time, my four-year-old was only in preschool part-time, my husband wasn’t pulling his weight on the home front, and my extended family was experiencing a number of crises. But I’m also old enough to know there is never a perfect time in life — you just live the one you’ve got. These are simply the problems I’m dealing with this year. Next year these problems will be traded in for new fresh ones.

After studying my time and chatting with some other work-at-home folks, I discovered five reasons to embrace the schedule:

1. It’s too easy to waste time doing non-priority tasks
2. It’s too easy to get sidetracked or distracted from your current task
3. Unscheduled work time can often overlap into your free time until you don’t have any free time at all
4. Your free time can overlap into your work time until you fall behind with important projects
5. Concentrating your time and effort on highest priority projects means more gets done

I’m not the only work at home business person encompassing the schedule. I recently took part in an online forum where menworkathome and womenhad moved to embrace it — and found it more freeing than restrictive. After all, you are still the one setting the schedule so you are free to schedule yourself off for a 3-hour lunch, an afternoon, or a whole day whenever you choose.

If you find it difficult setting up your schedule and priorities for the day and week then perhaps your significant other or a friend can help you set your schedule. CLICK HERE for more reasons on why you need a work from home schedule
