How to Start a 7 Figure Online Business [Phase 1]

There is absolutely no better time to build an information business than RIGHT NOW.

The Internet literally brings the world to our virtual doorstep.

And I know how incredibly effective an information business is because I’ve done it. I have made over 120 million dollars on the Internet through the sale of information products.

There was a time I thought only other people could get these kinds of results. But then I was introduced to people who were actually doing it. In fact, they weren’t just doing it—they were killing it. I was shown that even someone like me, someone who struggled with writing, could do it.

And I did!

The best part of an information business is that it’s easy to set up and maintain. What I am about to reveal is a complete system that anyone can set up with ease.

This system consists of two phases that, when combined, create a formula to go from $0 to $100,000 per month. That’s right—6 figures per month!

Most people dream of making that much money in a year working a full-time job.And with an information business, it doesn’t even have to be full-time.

It doesn’t  get any better than that.

Now, let’s take a quick look at the two phases of this amazing formula.

Phase 1

This is how to start earning great money, without even needing an original product to sell.

That’s right. This can be done with ZERO product development and can take earnings from 0 to 5 figures a month!

The key is tapping into the power of affiliate marketing and using a proven email marketing model to achieve success.

Phase 2

Once we have Phase 1 down, we can move on to Phase 2—which is where we aim for $100,000 per month.

That’s a 7-figure business!

This is accomplished by adding information products to the mix. And we will demonstrate how to create information products from scratch.

Selling original products maximizes earnings because 100% of the profits are kept. Plus, it also means full control of the product from start to finish.

Phase 2 is a simple model that naturally builds off of  Phase 1. It opens up new traffic channels and opportunities. And it paves the way for success.

I want this to be a road map showing exactly how to reach this level of success.

That’s why I am holding a unique FREE two-part workshop on Success Weekly that will teach both phases of this 0 to 7 figure formula. This is two weeks of learning the very best system to boost anyone’s monthly income to 6 figures.

This week, I will be focusing on Phase 1. This is where to get started. Phase 1 can be implemented immediately, without any original product to sell.

Here’s how Phase 1 works…

Phase 1

Phase 1 is incredibly easy to launch and maintain. It doesn’t require putting time into creating products and it all can be done on a small budget. Yet, it has the potential to boost earnings all the way up to $10,000 per month!

The key behind Phase 1 is to become an affiliate marketer.

This is selling other people’s products and earning 50% to 70% commission on each sale. This means earning 50% to 70% commission on each sale.

How is this done?

Through email marketing. Email marketing and affiliate marketing go hand-in-hand. Plus, email is the very best way to launch an online business. And the best part is that I have developed a proven email marketing model that I’m about to share.

Let’s take a look…

My Proven Email Marketing Model

I have successfully built an online business that earned me $500,000 to $1 Million per month using nothing other than email marketing.

Now what makes email so special? After all, these days social media is getting all the attention. This may be, but an astonishing number of people still use email on a daily basis and a lot of business deals and transactions occur via email. Here are a few statistics to consider:

  • There are 4.6 billion email addresses worldwide (Source: The Radical Group).
  • A whopping 144.8 billion emails are sent every day.
  • Email marketing has generated $2.47 billion in sales (Source: Forrester Research).
  • For every $1 spent on email marketing the average return on investment is $44.25 (Source: Email Report).

DO NOT overlook  these numbers!

Another reason why email is the king of marketing is that the owner of the list has complete control.

When marketing via social media companies, they make the rules and they can change the rules—anytime they want to. I have personally had my Google AdWords account shut down literally overnight. That account was generating over $600,000 a year. There was no notice and no explanation.

When I market via email, I OWN the email list. I decide what to do with that list. No one can take that list away from me. Period. And my email lists have become assets that are literally worth millions of dollars.

Email lists have truly formed the backbone of my information business.

And here is why email marketing works so well—people are CHOOSING to OPT-IN.They are giving their permission to be sent emails.

What can possibly be better than people giving permission to market to them?

Plus, every email sent is speaking directly with the customer. This allows a relationship to develop. To the customer, the email marketer is seen as a real person, rather than a faceless corporation. It’s becoming a friend rather than a complete stranger.

The contacts on the list then become warm traffic, rather than a cold click.

This is how the people on the list develop trust. And when people trust, they are more willing to buy. After all, there is no better recommendation that a personal recommendation.

And this is what will ensure that affiliate marketing is hugely successful.

In order to apply email marketing to affiliate marketing, there is a simple 5-step system I have developed.

CHOOSE A NICHE.

 

ClickBank.com or any other top affiliate sites, for example, have many different categories of products.

Within each category, there are many subcategories called niches. For example, in the Health category, Women’s Weight Loss is a niche.

Ideally, someone should find a niche that they are passionate about. Selling is that much more effective when it’s something that is genuine and honestly endorsed. If there is no passion, it will show in the emails.

It’s also important to choose a high-quality product. The people on the email list have built TRUST so this product needs to be a Level 10 in quality. If anything less is promoted, say goodbye to all credibility.

And if that happens, the business tanks.

Set up an opt-in page.

The No. 1 goal of an email marketer is to collect email addresses.

When people click through to this page, offer them a FREE gift in return for their email address.

Your opt-in page needs four key elements to be a high converter:

  • A great headline that tells the prospect precisely what they will get when they provide their email address.
  • The opt-in box that is very visible. It should be accompanied by clear instructions on what to do.
  • An image of the free gift they will receive. This will help generate excitement.
  • Bullet points that present the value of the free gift. These greatly increase conversions.

How do people find the opt-in page? Drive traffic to it. This can even be done by using another email marketer’s targeted email list. This is called a solo ad. It costs money, but it gives the potential to access hundreds of potential leads all at once. Advertising through Google AdWords and Facebook is also really feasible at a minimal cost.

The key is once that email lead is generated, it provides the ability to continually market to that lead for FREE. Paying to market to leads becomes a thing of the past!

Choose a winning affiliate offer.

Go to the top affiliate sites and check them out. Which affiliates have the best marketing? Which ones send out the best emails? Which ones have the best product?

Act like a customer and check these things out. Sign up for their newsletter. Watch their videos. Be selective. Only promote the best.

Create a FREE gift.

A free gift can be a free eBook, a workbook, or an audio or video file. Don’t worry, these can be very easy to create. The key is to offer incredible value to the people who visit the opt-in page

It’s so important to offer something of value in exchange for someone’s Email address. When offering a free gift with great value, conversion rates will skyrocket, resulting in a bigger and bigger list.

The free gift can be created from scratch or done by a freelancer. Either way, it will be something of value that people want badly enough to give their email address for.

Send out the email.

Once the opt-in page and free gift is set up, get ready for some email list growth.

Now with an email list, the actual emails can be sent. These emails will promote the affiliate sales page of the chosen affiliate product.

The best time to promote a product is during a product launch.  Some evergreen products can be promoted (sell well on a daily basis) but never underestimate the power of a product launch.

 

Just remember, the product is NOT sold in the email. Remember that. There are only three jobs as an email marketer.

  • Create Excitement: It’s a must to get people excited. If they aren’t excited, they won’t click. If they don’t click, the email is useless and so is the sales page.
  • Edify and Create Expectation: Make the reader curious enough to click on the link. One of the best ways to do this is to tell them a story.
  • Generate Clicks: If the first two jobs are done well, this one should fall into place. This is the goal behind the email—to get them to click through to the sales page.

That’s it!

Here is an example of an email from my book Email Lifeline that shows all three jobs functions in action:

Then I simply tell a story, one that adds to the intrigue. This story will entice the reader to click on the link because they just have to know what I have found out. They just have to know which seven foods will help them lose weight.

And all of this is essentially what we will be doing in Phase 1 of the 2 Phase system.

Apply Email Marketing to Phase 1

 

In our free Phase 1 workshop, one of the things we walk through is how to set up a lead capture page. This is the foundation for getting leads and building a list.

I cannot stress the importance of this page enough. This is the OPT-IN page. It is critical to getting people to opt-in to the email list. And when this page is done right, it is truly magical.

The one-page opt-in site will ultimately become the engine for the Email Marketing Business. This is what generates quality leads to turn into sales.

Sadly, there are so many marketers that send traffic directly to the sales page, instead of going to the opt-in page first. Here’s what happens:

  • Losing most of that traffic.
  • Paying for every single click, even if the person has visited the page in the past.
  • Even if the sales page is good enough to convert at 4%, 96% of traffic is lost in the form of people who don’t buy.

However, if traffic is driven to an opt-in page first, where they can give their email address, follow up emails can be sent to entice them to go to the sales page. When this is done, conversions can be as high as 70%.

Now, instead of losing 96% of visitors, 70% of them are in the door. Plus, they can be reached again and again through email!

But that’s not all! When attend the LIVE Phase 1 workshop and learn how to build an Automated Traffic Engine. This is a completely new strategy. No one has ever seen this before because I have never shared it before.

This Automated Traffic Engine is a set-it-and-forget-it deal. It will literally automate all of the traffic that is sent to the lead page.

And all that traffic is FREE!

Folks, building this Automated Free Traffic Engine is going to be the core focus of the training for Phase 1. DON’T miss this. Don’t throw away the potential for tens of thousands, even millions of dollars.
