How to Set Up a 7 Day E-Course
Be a Winner! Answer the Challenge! An e-course is a sequence of emails set up to be delivered automatically without any effort on your part after the initial set up. Just set it and forget it. Setting up a free e-course is a great way to keep your services on top of mind and educate people about what you can do for them.
I highly suggest you subscribe to other people's e-courses in your field and study what information they offer too. Psst! To make this e-course work, you'll need a sequential autoresponder service. I use http://www.clickstartcart.com. (It's an entire shopping cart system, but I actually signed up with them initially because of the sequential autoresponders. They have a free 30 day trial).
HERE'S HOW TO GET STARTED
STEP ONE: Outline your topics. First you have to figure out what you think people would want to know about. Do a brainstorm exercise where you limit yourself to 5 minutes (use a timer). Write down all the topics you can think of on your area of expertise. Then edit down what you think is most relevant. For example, here's the basic outline of my free e-course on copywriting.
STEP TWO: Go deeper in each subject. Really provide some content here.
Make 2-3 points about each topic. Don't be afraid to do some hardcore research. Find statistics and trends and use them. Two of my favorite resources for current info are http://answers.google.com/answers/ and http://www.ceoexpress.com. Your message doesn't have to be long, just information-packed. You have the attention of people who "asked" to learn from you. So give them something valuable.
STEP THREE: Tease them till next time. After you've educated them, let them know that the next lesson will have something even more mouthwatering. The less specific you are, the more tantalizing the copy. Here are some teaser phrases I used in my e-course. Feel free to swipe versions of them for your own use:
STEP FOUR: Sign off. End your email like a real letter with a closing like "sincerely", your name, business and some ways to get a hold of you. Add your website and any tagline you use too.
STEP FIVE: P.S. Alert them to your other products or services. You have something to sell, right? But the purpose of your e-course is to educate and develop a relationship, isn't it? Don't worry. You can do both. As long as you're giving good content, people often like to know if you have something else to buy they would be interested in. For a gentle call to action, I recommend putting a product link with very little text in the P.S. (Studies show that people read the headline first THEN the PS. Weird, huh? But it's true.)
So to recap. Follow up is one of the biggest problems in doing business. Autoresponders do it effortlessly.
THE CHALLENGE Write your 7 day e-course and have it ready to go in 7 days. For sequential autoresponders, again, I recommend http://www.clickstartcart.com. Writing a free e-course is a great way to get business. And you'll use it for years with only minor tweaks. It gives people a reason to go to your page. Best of all, they get to test drive your material at no risk. Autoresponders save you time and make you look professional. I can't wait to read YOUR free e-course!

Automatic Internet Marketing and Business Success On A $25.00 Budget
There are plenty of free tools online for marketing. And many will get you sign ups and sales. This report is not a commentary on the quality of all free marketing programs. We agree some do work. This report provides an alternative to the "long term" usage requirement necessary in order to find the free "working" programs. It's purpose also is to help eliminate the "seeming" reluctance of free signups to upgrade. It is a way to virally market and to help eliminate long waiting periods when trying to get sales while using free marketing tools found online.

Creating Information Products For Money, Image And Success
There has never been a more exciting and profitable time to create your own online product. Recent breakthroughs in the costs of software, broadband, online hosting, and teleconferencing combined with the explosion of internet sales, makes it easier than ever before for any coach to create their own products. Even better, with the advent of automation, it's never been easier to automate the entire sales and distribution of your product, providing you with a passive stream of income while you sleep. An information product can be delivered in many different formats; as an e-book, e-course, special report, manual, tutorial, home study course, tele-class, intensive program, etc. Audio and video can even be added to any of these formats, simply and easily from home, something that wasn't possible even just a few years ago. Why is it important to have your own product on the internet? Positions you as an expert - Perception is everything on the internet and the creation of your own product results in positioning you as an expert and is a critical step in generating new business. Builds your brand identity - Your product represents you and your business in the marketplace, and making it available on the Web is the first step toward getting your product into more hands, heads, and homes. Reaches a global marketplace - Having a product available on the Web means that you've expanded your geographic marketplace to the entire world via your website and your affiliate's websites. Creates a 24/7, passive revenue, profit machine - The Web never sleeps which means that you can literally turn your computer and website into a cash register around the clock, and many, if not all, of the processes can be automated. Instantly increases the effectiveness of yours sales cycle - This is especially critical for coaches. Often a consumer will opt to purchase a product as a trial before deciding to purchase your service. Having a quality product available on the Web allows them to get to know a bit more about you and what you have to offer. In addition to the great benefits listed above, there are several more which apply specifically to information products and make them an even more attractive choice. They are remarkably cost-effective - Since traditional production and distribution is unnecessary, your costs are significantly reduced and your margin for profit is significantly increased. Increase your speed to market - While it might take months or years to get a hardbound book written, edited, published, produced, and distributed to book stores, you can deliver the same content in the format of an e-book and bring it into the world in a matter of days or weeks instead. Content can be leveraged in several formats - The same content can be presented in several different formats; as an e-book, an e-course, a tele-class, a home study course, and the list goes on and on. My Book Yourself Solid product line is a perfect example. See how I've created a full product line at www.BookYourselfSolid.com. Opportunity for bold self-expression and learning - The Web allows you to get your message to millions simultaneously while at the same time offering you the opportunity to learn in action as you challenge yourself to create something totally unique. Now is the time to get into action. Product creation does not have to be that difficult. To learn more, visit http://www.90dayproduct.com. Before you know it you'll be hearing the beautiful, melodic, 'ka-ching, ka-ching' sound of your website turned cash register, as the orders come rolling in.
