Automated Selling and Recruiting - A Simple System
Some years ago, on the recommendation of a friend, I visited Amazon.com for the first time. My friend was someone whose judgement I trusted - and I had also heard good things about Amazon from other friends and colleagues.
I was certainly impressed with what I saw when I got to the site, it was well laid out, information was clear, prices were good and there was a great range to choose from. But I didn't buy anything - not on that visit. Later on I went back to the site and I am now a regular customer.
So what's the moral of the story? I went to one of the best websites on the planet, I was already interested and I had plenty of first hand recommendations from people who I knew and trusted - but I didn't buy anything. Why not?
Simple - it's perfectly normal behaviour that's why, in fact had I bought anything on that first visit I would have been flying in the face of conventional behaviour - on the internet or in the real world.
It's the equivalent of window shopping, or you could consider it as research if you like. Just be aware that this is the way the vast majority of people surf and view websites - get used to it and plan accordingly.
The only way that you're going to make a sale is if the visitor returns, or if you have further contact by some other means. there are a number of ways to do this, two of the best methods are as follows:
Both of these methods work very well, and should be used together if possible.
Focusing on follow up: Use an autoresponder to follow up automatically for you. It will help you form a relationship with your customers and/or potential team members and increase your profits more than almost any other tool.
An autoresponder is simply a piece of software which stores pre-loaded email messages and then sends them out to people who have supplied their email address. The important thing is that the emails are going out only to people who have given their permission for emails to be sent to them. they are, to use the network marketing parlance, qualified prospects.
They have visited your website, read a short summary of your business opportunity and shown their interest by completing the form and supplying their email address.
Most autoresponders will allow you to automatically generate the code to produce a form for your interested prospects to enter their name and email address in order for them to receive your messages. Paste this code onto a very simple single page website, add a few bullet points explaining the benefits of your product/service/opportunity, drive traffic to your website and then let the autoresponder do the follow up for you.
The system works very well for the following reasons:
You do the hard work once - when you set up you messages and website. after that, it's just a matter of driving traffic to your site.
Hint: Always keep a record of their signup details, date, time, ISP etc. If they forget and do accuse you of spam then this information will help you refute their claim (politely of course).
Even if they aren't interested in your first offer you can update them on any new opportunities or products that you decide to promote at a later date. You have your very own list.
You can find plenty of autoresponders by doing a search on Google. GetResponse and Aweber are the two best known and will probably help you get past the spam filters more easily than some of the others available. There probably isn't a lot to choose between the big two but GetResponse does have a free version (text only) which you can try for an unlimited period. It also has very good tutorials. Aweber also has good tutorials but has a limited time period for its free version (30 days).
Don't worry about the website either. There are plenty of free HTML editors (check Google) and if you can use a word processor then you will be able to create a simple webpage with a few bullet points and a signup form.
You shouldn't use a free website host to advertise but, if you really don't want to spend money, you could use a free HTML editor and upload the product of your labour to the free web space provided by your ISP. This is likely to be no more than a temporary solution but isn't an unreasonable approach when you're starting out.

8 Excellent Ways to Sell Your Back-end Products More Successfully!
A back-end product is a product that you attempt to sell to your customers after they have recently purchased a related item from your business. Selling back-end products is an extremely effective way of boosting your profits. It is a lot easier to sell products to those who have already bought from you than to seek out new customers. Of course, it is extremely important that you have a steady flow of new customers but it is also important to keep up with older customers and always be looking to lead them to make another purchase. If you make transactions on your website a good experience, older customers are very likely to look to do business with you again. It is your responsibility to persuade them to make that decision. Here are 8 ways to sell your back-end products more successfully:

El Marketing, Das Marketing, Le Marketing
While reviewing site stats, I noticed 18 foreign countries as domain origins. This prompts my curiosity. Should I hone my marketing efforts to serve these visitors effectively in their native tongue? My college age daughter studies French, German, and Spanish simultaneously. The Word "marketing" is an "American" word she informs me; distinguished in Spanish, German, and French with slight nuance. Although my daughter learns conversations in Spanish, German, and French, much more talk is in Chinese.

What Big Pharma Can Teach You About Niche Marketing
A recent newspaper review of a new book, Selling Sickness, got me thinking about niche marketing (The Globe and Mail, Saturday, August 6, 2005, D8-D9).
