How To Build Thousands of Subscribers To Your Newsletter

May 15, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: Email Marketing, Getting business to come to you, Marketing

Building a list of thousands may seem daunting and impossible, but it’s something that can really happen if you know exactly what to do.  The truth is that list building is easy to do, can be set up quickly, and can make you lots of cash if you know how to treat your subscribers.  Below, I’ll be teaching you how to build a list of thousands within a few months.

How to build a list of thousands:

An effective squeeze page

The squeeze page is the most important thing to have. If it’s very boring, has bad content, or isn’t appealing, you won’t get people to sign up to your list.  You need to make sure that you talk about what they’re going to get, how they will benefit from it, and exactly what they can achieve with what you’re giving them.  By letting them know about what they’re going to achieve, you can be sure to get more people sign up.

Look at top marketers

Try looking at some of the top marketers’ squeeze pages. If you look at them, you’ll notice how appealing they look and how eye catching they are.  This is what you need to do when building a squeeze page, and it’s to attract your visitors the way the top marketers do.

Rank the squeeze page high

Ranking the squeeze page high can help make sure that more and more people will be visiting the squeeze page.  Creating a separate page on your website for this is not that good because people will just scroll around your website.  With a personal website of your squeeze page, many people will sign up because all they see is what you have to offer them and the subscription form.

Those three tips are extremely powerful. Anybody who tries them out are surely going to build a list of thousands within a few weeks.

Before you place that script on your site, make sure that you create a really nice set of messages that you will automatically send out.

So, you can create around 10, 20, and even 50 different messages that you’d like to send out over a period of weeks or even months. This makes list building quite the autopilot income.

How To Get More Twitter Followers

March 09, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Getting business to come to you, Marketing, Networking

Most internet marketers know just how important social networks are but it seems like most of them tend to overlook the importance of Twitter.

A lot of people have been focused on Facebook and Twitter tends to be looked at as a lesser version of the website. However, if you are serious about taking your marketing strategies to a higher level, then it is a good idea to learn how to get more Twitter followers.

Twitter is all about being able to send a short message to all of your followers and so it is a good idea to try and get as many followers as possible.

In order to get more followers, you will simply need to increase your presence online through different websites. For example, your Facebook, YouTube and even LinkedIn profiles will have your Twitter name exposed so that you will be able to gain more followers.

Another good way to get more followers is by actually “buying” followers online. Though this may seem like cheating, it is a strategy that a lot of people use. This enables you to have more followers and greatly increases your company’s reputation.

When you look at a business, you will often give more respect to the companies that have more followers. Even if you have no idea what the company is about, you can often “assume” that it is a trusted business. This is why it is very important to try and get as many followers as possible because this is the best way to expand as a business.

If you are serious about trying to get followers, you have to be patient as you will most likely not get a big boost of followers right away. With just a little patience, you will surely be able to gain more followers on Twitter.

How To Get More Fans To Your Facebook Fan Page

March 02, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Getting business to come to you, Marketing

Most people will admit that they will often go towards companies that have more fans because they feel like it is a great way to determine if they are a trusted brand or company.

If you are looking to learn how to get more Facebook fans, then you will need to take these things into consideration.

Make Contests

This is a strategy that has helped other companies that are trying to get more fans. These contests will help you stay connected with your fans and to create a relationship that will help build your online presence.

You can give away little items like t-shirts or you can even give people discounts. The only thing that they will need to do is share your Facebook page and to tag a photo to your fan page. This causes their friends and family to see your page and thus gaining more fans.

Use Other Sites

Do not just focus on Facebook as this is not the best strategy for internet marketing. You will need to go over to websites like Twitter as a different source of traffic. You will then need to post about your Facebook page and have people join you on Facebook as well. Most people are members on both social networks and so it is a good idea to target them on both sides.

These are just simple ways to get more Facebook fans and to really increase your overall presence on the internet. Do these two things and you will start to see a big increase of fans on Facebook.

Blogging Basics

February 21, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Getting business to come to you, Marketing, blogging

Blogging is a way for people to express how they feel on the internet but it can also be a great way to make money. Though you may not see it as a way to make money, it is still something that you can do as a fun hobby. Here are some of the blogging basics and how you can get started with your blog.

Find A Niche

Before you make a blog, you will need to know what your niche is. A niche is basically what your blog is going to be about and it is important that you choose a niche that will get some traffic. You have to find a niche that is not too saturated but also not too unknown. Choosing a niche like baseball can be very common but it is a better idea to try and get specific by choosing an actual baseball team. You will need to find a niche that you can constantly write about and something that you truly have a passion for.

Stay Consistent

Choose a day of the week where you will release your next post so that you will be able to let your readers know when to expect a new post. You will need to stay consistent because you will most likely not have readers to begin with but you will need to remember that they will come. Do not base your success off of comments and views and base it off of how consistent you are.

If you are able to get these blogging basics down, then you will be able to start blogging. Starting and running a blog is really not that tough and as long as you choose a niche that you have a passion for, you will never get sick of making blog posts.

Will the next 12 months be better than the last 12 months

January 27, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Marketing

If you are like a lot of people I have talked with, last year was still a very slow year for business.  Ask yourself this question: “What am I doing to ensure that the next 12 months will be better than the last 12 months?”

If business hasn’t been good over the past year, you need to change your direction. 

It’s way too easy to mistake movement for progress and end up working hard, doing the wrong things.  If hard work alone were the secret to success, our grandparents would have been millionaires.

If you are not getting enough leads, find out why and fix it!

If the leads you do have are not converting to sales, fix it!

How to define your niche

January 26, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Getting business to come to you, Marketing

To define your niche means clearly identifying a group of people who need a product or service that you are able to provide. The best niches are those that no one else can fill or don’t fill adequately. If you have a product or service that is in high demand and you may not need a niche. But the more competitive the field you are in, the more important it is for you to find what you are uniquely qualified to do.

Your niche needs to be small enough that you don’t have a lot of competition and can reach most of your potential clients within the limits of your time and budget. And the niche needs to be large enough to provide sufficient customers to support your business.

Gold Leaf Printing, for example was in the printing industry, which is highly competitive. In fact, it was so competitive that to earn bids and clients, some competitors were willing to bid below cost just to attract new customers. One competitor told people to find the lowest price and they would beat it by 10%! Now how do you compete with that???

However, when I created a new company called Medi-Forms which specialized in medical printing, there was no competition! Sure, all the other printers in the area could print the same things we printed, but none could say that they specialized in medical printing and didn’t print anything else. (Yes, we printed other types of printing on the printing presses that we had, but all the other printing was printed by Gold Leaf Printing, not Medi-Forms!)

I formed a new company, registering it with the state and had loose leafs printed with Medi-Forms logo on the front and the most popular medial forms and printing inside. Our business cards were for Medi-Forms and stated that all we did was print forms for the medical industry! Since I and one other person performed the sales function, we both learned all we could about the medical industry and the forms they needed. When we visited a doctor’s office or hospital, we could talk in their language about their needs.

The other printers thought it was too much trouble to create a new company to specialize, so they didn’t fill the niche that Medi-Forms filled. Printing orders came flying in. And, to make it even better, we could charge a price that made a fair profit and when our competition gave pricing that was lower, our new customers still ordered from us because we “specialized”!


You aren’t truly in business until you have business!

January 20, 2012 By: Ron Coleman Category: General Business, Getting business to come to you, Marketing

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine started a new business in February. And his new business was started with a bang!

He invested all of his personal savings and retirement in a luxurious office that was furnished. He bought the most advanced office equipment and computers. He also invested in equipment he felt he needed to run his business, including a laptop, etc. He joined the Chamber of Commerce and had a ribbon cutting and a huge lavish party.

Although it seemed he had everything a business could need, he was closed by Easter. The one thing he didn’t have was clients!

I also have a friend that started a business with nothing more that business cards. Because she knew what to do to find clients, her business flourished!

This means one important rule: You aren’t truly in business until you have business!

Since I first went on my own with a business in 1974, I have learned that having plenty of business is not a matter of luck! The magic is marketing! Marketing refers to all the activities involved in making sure you have enough business flowing through your door and that it keeps flowing in.

Since my first business, I have read almost every book on marketing. I still read 3 or 4 marketing books every month to stay on top of new trends! I have learned that much of what has been written or taught about marketing and how to get business simply does not apply to me. I did not have a big business or retail location with funds for market research, a sales force, and advertising budget!

Over the years I have found that many self-employed individuals feel as I did. They have a small business, maybe out of their home, but still need to bring in customers on a shoestring, without a staff of professionals or the help of an advertising agency!

And even though much of the information available about marketing is excellent, applying it to what we need to do to make sure we have work to do on Monday mornings is like trying to make a good impression in a hand-me-down suit that is too big: it is not a comfortable fit!

But there is marketing techniques that work fantastically well for the self-employed!

In this blog, I  share what actually works to bring in more customers.  The marketing tools and ideas were developed over years of trial and error and blood, sweat, and tears!

I hope you come back often to learn these techniques that bring customers and learn to avoid those things that do not work!
