4 Steps To Make Your Home Business A True Automated System
If you have ever been involved or currently involved in the home business or internet business industry, Well, you hear it all the time:
“You need a system to succeed.”
I want to take this a step further. In order to get the most out of your home business opportunity, You not only need a “system”, but you need to have an Automated System. If you even want to take that one step further, make sure your Automated System hits your prospects from EVERY angle else you will not achieve the highest levels of prosperity.
Here I am describing four techniques that WILL boost your earnings with ANY home or internet business opportunity if used on all of your prospects.
Step 1: Build a “capture” page.
Even if you have no concept of what this is, It’s most likely that you have seen a capture page and actually been “captured by one“. A capture page is just a page that is set up to provide some brief information about a product or service and needs the prospect to enter their info to get the full details. It is usually a teaser or hyped-up page that teases the prospect to want to know more. The most convincing capture pages touch on the prospects’ personal or financial requirements coercing them to find out more by providing their information. Once they do, you own their information for life and can persistently follow up with them or contact them about different offers of services you have now, or will develop in the future. Capture pages are a MUST to commence building your list that you are going to use to promote any product or service. Lead Page Generator is an outstanding program that lets even the most novice person create capture pages in minutes.
NEVER EVER LOSE YOUR LIST OF CAPTURED NAMES, EMAILS, ADDRESSES, ETC.
Those that are approvingly successful in any home business or internet opportunity own a list of thousands that they have made over the years. Any time they have something new to promote like a product, service, or opportunity, they use their list to send it out. This gives them a significant head start and if your products, services, and opportunities have been thriving in the past, your list will follow you around.
This all leads to the second technique of creating a fully automated system, named email autoresponders.
Step 2: Use emails to Follow up with your prospects
Email is the simplest and most recognizable form of follow-up. When building a capture page, all you have to do is tie the information form into an autoresponder. There are many services such as Aweber which make this task very easy. Now, when a prospect enters in their information, you not only get to preserve their data for your list, but now you can follow up with them daily, weekly, monthly without having to swipe a finger. Of course, you have to compose your email follow-up messages beforehand of time, but once you have completed them, you are automatically following up with your prospects over and over without doing any additional work.
While email is an excellent tool for making your system automated, it should not be the ONLY tool you use. Using only emails is a huge mistake. The truth is, that email follow-up and marketing are becoming far less useful due to new spam laws and people filtering their email accounts.
In order to contact as many people as possible, you must come at them from various angles.
Step 3: Use Voice Broadcasting System to Follow up
Voice broadcasting is yet another way of following up with prospects. It is an incredible tool and as of late has been kind of the “new email.” Because email is getting filtered by spam control features, it is essential to try and reach prospects by means of other methods. Outside of email, voice broadcasting is the most effortless and least costly means of following up. Additionally, Voice Broadcasting services can keep your system fully automated. You can record a simple message or sequence of messages, collect the prospects’ contact number using your capture page, and then merely set up your voice broadcasting software to call them as you prefer i.e. once, weekly, monthly, or whatever you desire. Some of the services that provide Voice Broadcasting are Voiceshot, Goldcalling, Probuilderplus, and Protus.
Step 4: Postcard follow up
Using Direct mail is the most forgotten way of follow-up, but usually the most influential. Postcards are a fantastic way to make sure that your prospects hear from you. By simply gathering their mailing info on your capture page, you have set yourself up to use an outstanding tool that will certainly help boost your sales and income.
There are a couple of services that let you set up a direct mail campaign to function precisely like an email autoresponder. In my opinion, the best service is PostCardAutoresponder.com. You can set up a campaign by just inputting a prospect’s mailing address. This service will send them a postcard as you preferred like once, twice, weekly, monthly, or whatever you desire. Just set it up once and don’t look back. You can contact a prospect for a complete year on autopilot. You can even customize postcards for any business, service, or opportunity.
If you use these straightforward 4 step plans for creating an automated system for your business, you will certainly boost sales and income. Plus, you will not just have an automated system that functions for you while you are doing something you enjoy, but it will be one that reaches prospects from every angle so that they get your message early and often. Remember, it is not every time sufficient just to have a system. You must have an automated system that will run itself while you focus on building your business.
