Targeting Your List: The biggest thing that is going to bring you a good result in your direct marketing is a laser focused list. I often watch a Tv ad for a new perfume and think how wasteful the marketing is because half the population is not interested. Its your job to only target people with a 90%25 chance of buying. If you cannot do this forge about direct mail.
Not so longago, I fell behind on my mortgage payments and almostlost my home to foreclosure. I remembersitting up at internet marketing night and wondering “what am I going to do”. I rememberfeeling helpless and worrying about my creditbeingdestroyed. I worried about a judgment beingfiledagainst me by the mortgagecompany. I worried about where I was going to go if I lost my Home and How I would be able to afford to move when I can’t even afford my mortgage payment.
I am horrified when I venture into the bad neighborhoods of the online business opportunity sections of the world. What is being claimed and presented is awful. People are hiding behind IP addresses and making claims that WILL Never Happen.
So, how does a person increase their odds? The simple answer is to join a person first, and a business a distant second. Businesses by nature are impersonal. They have no feelings, make no decisions, and do no real work. People by nature are more social. They work, they share, and they experience both highs and lows.
When I first discovered Maverick Money Makers I thought “Yeah right, Here we go again! Another money making scheme to trap me!” How wrong I was! I read all the information that they gave and watched all the videos. I was floored to say the least! I was so impressed by everything that I had seen I bought the program myself and I haven’t looked back!
I had dabbled in online marketing before with little success. I read practically every digital publication there is to read. I tried many a software package that claimed it will make you rich at the push of a button. “Just install this and watch your money grow” is the message that many of them convey. But nothing ever truly made me any serious money, that is nothing except the Wealthy Affiliate.
You need to set up a squeeze page to collect the names and addresses of the prospective clients who are requesting your free report. The best way to drive traffic to your site fast is by using PPC. I recommend using AdWords, Yahoo and MSN as your goal is to build the list as fast a possible. Article marketing may also help, but nothing is faster than PPC. You should understand you will loose money during this phase. However, this will save time and money in the long run as you may find out a niche is not profitable and you can then look for another one.
Achievement – Having goals set and reaching them is motivational giving you the hunger to drive on. Achieving your goals gives you a great deal of satisfaction and most importantly positive belief that this business works.
