Who doesn't want to make a lot of money in their home based business, using just the internet. Well, most people who hop online fail and it's simply because the way they view the internet. They see it as a cash cow or ATM, and not a business.
You can make a lot of money online, but the only way you will do it, is through lead generation for your business.
I'm going to cover 2 free methods you can use to generate a tremendous amount of leads for your home business. Which in turn will make you a lot of money.
But Before I get into that, I want to give you 1 big tip that will help you tremendously in making it, in this industry.
If you are wanting to make a big residual income, you have to focus on giving value to people first.
Focus on their problems, concerns, wants, needs and desires. In whatever you do, whether it's an article, an ad or video. Always keep this on the forefront of everything you do.
Now that you know this big principle, let's get into 2 different marketing techniques you can use to generate a lot of leads in your home business in the next 30 days.
1. YouTube – When I mention YouTube, I basically mean video marketing.
Video allows you to be transparent, and very authentic with your audience. Not only that but you are putting your content on a website owned by Google. So your video's have a 99% chance to be seen by other people.
When you shoot a video, make sure you focus your content on how-to's, walk-thru's and inspiration. These are the easiest and most popular subjects to hang your video's on.
When you post your video on YouTube, make sure to put your main keyword in the title and in the description. The search engines use these to find your video, so without them your video's are pretty much lost at sea.
Next, make sure you put a call-to-action in the end of your video. It can be as simple as, “If you found the content on this video helpful, visit my website to get more. Go to ________ .”
Without a call-to-action, you will not make any money. You need to direct people at the end of all your marketing messages.
2. Personal Blog – When you get online very few guru's ever mention the importance of building marketing assets for your home based business.
In my opinion, there isn't a more valuable asset than a personal blog.
By just posting valuable content consistently you can attract thousands of prospects everyday, over the course of time.
Not only that but it's 100% free and completely perpetual!
To make your blog efforts effective, there are only a few rules:
– Make sure you build your blog through WordPress and on your own hosting account.
– Always focus on content that's helpful, exciting, valuable and conversational. This will get your visitors to connect with you through comments.
– Put a banner in your sidebar, and at the bottom of each of your posts. Use these banners to send people to where they can enter your sales and relationship building funnels.
I recommend that you stick with 1 of these techniques, to drive leads for your home based business. You'll master it quicker, which means you also make money faster.
