Dear Online Business Owner,
Welcome to online business. By now you must have found that how deep and vast this digital world is. Do not get overwhelmed by the information overloading on you. Relax.
Because I will be show you exactly what you NEED to do to be successful in your online business.
First you need to know what you are heading for.
Then you need to get the right tools.
And finally, you execute your plan.
By doing this, you can be successful.
Focus on your business, once you start your business, you will see many other opportunities offering quick success or easy money making products, things like that, do not get distracted by ‘easy come’ things. Because what is easy does not last. IT IS NOT SUSTAINABLE. And if easy opportunity can make you rich, then everyone would be rich? FOCUS on your goals!
Tools, that you need to keep watch on your stats and more. The most basic tools that you should have are:-
Let me explain what these are:
Tracking, you need to track your leads, where they are coming from.
, you need to capture your leads details, such as email. So you can communicate with them if they left your offer without looking into the value it have.
, to send newsletter or your interesting offer/ free products or discount (something of value) to people that were interested to know what you have for them and gave you their email, although they left without obtaining what you were offering.
Execution, is when you know your plan is set and your materials and tools are in place, that is when you will execute your plan. Then people will get to know your value product and want to buy it.
During this process, you need to have a positive mindset. You should believe in yourself and what you offer. People can sense it, if they see you are weak, they wouldn’t bother to look into what you have to offer. Build your confidence, keep yourself motivated
, and believe in your offer, that it is most unique and best thing that the world is looking for.
If you have that confidence, then most the work is done. Be consistent, keep taking action, be persistent, keep enhancing your knowledge and using new ways to offer your opportunity or products.
This is the simplest way I can put what is required to do by online business owners.
Thank you for reading. I hope that this post has provided you with value.

Email marketing and email follow up can be amazing way to promote a business and conversion.
But few know to craft a perfect email that goes right into the inbox with attractive subject line, making their mind’s eyes to see more than just words, and they open the email to find what they been looking for all their life.
What if the email goes to spam/junk?
Most list builders advices their subscribers to whitelist their email, and it is important to ask. Because no matter how beautiful the email and its content are, if it goes right into junk, then a big percentage of email being opened drops down.
Similarly, of you use some of the best attractive lines to attract attention of your prospects, but because of some expressions or words that are used, it has been marked at spam, then the advertisement will not show up, it will be filtered.
So I decided to look for a way to avoid emails from going to spam.
Check out the below link to find the words to avoid.
Our email marketing campaign may have been a success or probably a total failure, it doesn’t matter because we can learn from our failures.
Regardless whether you’ve created a list of emails for potential clients, a list for recurrent clients or even emails for those nonresponders, the email follow-up is an essential part of the process.
Email follow up is a strategy to keep in contact with that person who is no longer responding to your e-mails.
This is incredibly advantageous for you because it let you know what the person’s cause was in order to stop responding to you.
It may be because that person is on vacation, probably too busy or even sick, that’s important information that’ll make the client feel more engaged with you.
If the case is no any of those explained above, then the problem might be you.
An email follow up will let you know if the nonresponders are not responding back to you because they are not interested in your product or service, and that make you save time by moving up to the next potential client.
Most entrepreneurs ignore the odds of re-hooking up the potential clients.
Most of them just delete the contacts off their list if they didn’t receive a respond from them in the following next couple of emails.
Unfortunately, they do not know the potential of their greatest asset, their list, is.
This is why most of the entrepreneurs are losing many of those clients who are interested in re-engaging the relationship.
It’s truth, many of those non-responders can be your clients by simply receiving an email follow up to see how things are going in their lives.
Don’t pitch all the time! Be friendly and valuable! When your email pops in their inbox, they should know its a goodie envelope full of valuables.
That is the reason why I use the Auto Response program called GetResponse to keep engaged in with my clients. There is one big fat reason why every online entrepreneur must use auto response, it is to immediately show the attention we should be showing to our clients! What does it show?
1- That we are up to date with our tools
2- We care about out clients
3- We can engage with our clients at alternative intervals
4- We are providing them “Value” (this is the most important part of follow-up)
And then, how long should we send the auto responses? Maximum of 10 emails, these could be at alternative days or straight 10 days!
A emotional psychologist said “10 days of follow up emails must convert your prospect to a client”.
He explained that if 10 days email follow up did not convert the prospect to a client, then there is either flaw in the content you have been sending to the client or the prospect is not fit for the opportunity. He warned “stop sending them anymore follow up emails”.
Maybe a newsletter once in a while, but with highly valuable content.
Are you with me?
I believe happiness is all we need. And happiness can be something as simple as watching your children at home playing board game together, or walking in garden, feeling air touching your face. It is something to be grateful for.
Like that smile on the child’s face when he sees his mother. That is happiness. The feeling of being cared for, protection, comfort…
I remember, looking at my 5 years bank statements. I have been paying my monthly installments (approx $2000/- per month) since 5 years, and counting remaining months that I have to pay. I wanted my installments get paid quickly and be free forever! I paid my monthly installments always on time. My bank marked me as privileged customer, eligible for life time credit card and other luxurious products, that I never really cared to register for, I just wanted to be free! The day I paid off the full loan, I was so super happy! I was relieved. That was a great form of happiness for me. I could spend now more on myself…and family…what a joy.
Enjoy the beautiful simple forms of happiness.
It is there, always with us.
Your list is your greatest asset.

The magic words: “Follow Up”
You got to start following up on your list. Always practice planning before hand.
Even before you market your business, you need to set up your AUTO-Response, with at least 5 to 15 emails, to follow up on your list, till it decide to convert.
Here is an article that will help you with the content of your emails.
Effective emails, that converts your list to sales.
In addition to this, I will be posting a great post on Email follow up “Don’ts”, by an expert psychologist in (Persuasion & Social Influence). Keep tuned.

If you want loyal people to read your post or buy your products then you have to provide them value in exchange. That’s that deal!

This afternoon while I was driving back to home I told to my sister who was sitting next to me that I have started to earn residual income through my online business, and she replied back to me that I am good with technology that’s why I will make good earnings. Although I know that it is the reality that every online business Entrepreneur should have tec skills to connect the dots and activate the whole system, and watch as it pays back.
Believe me this is not rocket science this is very simple things that anyone can learn. Only that we have to evolve while world around us evolves.
Let’s take the example of 2002, in this year I used to build the HTML websites, flash animations and fan pages. Who on earth knows the Flash Players now! Well webmasters knows! I had a subscription page, where people subscribed to get updates on my anime fan page! People are making money selling their lists these days!
However, in 2005, I had to distance myself from the online world. This was because life was on a 360 degree turn, I was going through personal issues and separation!
And then when I got back to the world of www in 2008 things were totally changed! In just short time! Internet was no longer the same, and I met with Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, nothing was so html anymore.
But one thing I knew, that now there is a lot to learn, perhaps just by using it. In fact, at that time, I still did not have interest in creating something, all I wanted to explore the new things.
At this point of life, I believe that everyone should take advantage of internet, because this is the future of most businesses (traditional or online) all must use the eCommerce platform.
Furthermore, one important thing that I would love to speak about and share a lot of things about personal development, it is very important for every person to develop their thoughts and skills and continue to do so.
There were times when I thought I have enough information, but information itself is not enough, one should be knowledgeable and most importantly aware of himself what he lacks and fill those gaps.
Seek for great things around you and you WILL find everything that’s good for you.
Since I realize that there are many new things yet to be discovered to add up to my knowledge, in some spots, I have opened up my mind to find them, use them, and get value out of them.
This is what it is all about.
I am sharing a wonderful quote with you here:-
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor E Frankl
I never knew what it meant till it happen to me. My situation wasn’t changing, that’s when I realize there is an action required to trigger change.
Always know that when everything seem to shut down for you, there is something great coming your way!
So never shut yourself down, especially when you feel down or it feels like end of the world, keep faith, and move forward, SEEK, there are solutions waiting to be embraced by you.
Enjoy and relax!
This is the sad reality.
Money does solve most the problems we are facing every day. You would agree if you are facing difficulties related to money.
How much money do you pay in your bills? 30% of your monthly salary?
Loans? 20 to 40% of your salary? I don’t know.
But I do know that not enough is left to enjoy, in the last few days till your next salary. In most people’s case.
It is high time to start you own business, build more streams of income.
Invest in yourself and become independent. Like most people around you.
