Are you promoting you A** off and getting nowhere?
That’s what happens with most new marketers, until they finally realize that you can’t just stick your awesome sales page in a traffic exchange and get rich overnight. It’s a dream that dies hard, I know that from personal experience, and I still try it once in a while. That’s human nature for you!
So what does work? Once you are ready to be a little bit patient, I recommend you get yourself a sales funnel.
A sales funnel is a system which does several things for you.
A sales funnel will build your list.
It will process your subscribers through a system which promotes your other programs to them.
And it will make you cash as well.
In this way, every subscriber you bring in to the funnel will possibly benefit you in these ways:
- They are on your list, so you can promote to them in the future
- They see your programs as they are processed through the system, and they sign up to some or all of them. This brings you referrals and commissions in multiple programs.
- They may choose to buy in to the funnel program as well, which will bring you direct cash.
Here are three of the best funnels for traffic exchange surfers:
MySurfBiz – this is a 3 step program. Step1 adds subscribers to your list. Step2 shows them your programs plus 2 bonus programs, and you will get signups here. Step3 is where you make the instant commissions on sales of MySurfBiz. The system contains an email series which you can use with any autoresponder. I am part owner of this program, though I joined while it still belonged to the original owner. Using MySurfBiz finally made me realize how effective and valuable a sales funnel can be.
TEProfits – this is an older and well respected marketing funnel from Scott Douglas. It has a free level as well as a paid level. The email series they provide for upgraded members to use is comprehensive and educational. Worth reading even if you don’t want to join. Scott does not do “hype”, so if you are sick of all that, then you will enjoy the materials on his site. You can opt in here, or read the crash course here.
Affiliate Funnel – this is probably the oldest one around. It has huge downline builders and rankers for traffic exchanges, safelists and other programs inside, as well as pages where you can promote your programs to your downlines, and on the traffic exchanges. This one is free to join, and they even promote your referral id’s to the various programs in emails to your downline. Their squeeze pages are being updated and there is an email series you can use.
If you are a newbie, you might try a funnel and then decide that you are not getting results fast enough. I will tell you now, you can go back to promoting sales pages and see how you like your results there. I’m pretty sure you’ll be back to your funnel after that! : )
