How to set up a simple blog sales funnel?

Setting up a sales funnel as a beginner blogger is pretty simple with this 3 step process that I’m going to be showing you today.

The first step is to make the initial point of contact by creating valuable content and then sharing it online. 

The second step is making a personal connection with your target audience.

The last and third step is pitching your offer. It’s that simple.

If you want to know exactly how you can implement each of these three steps so that you can start creating massive shifts in your blogging business, keep reading below.

By the way, you definitely want to take notes because this simple blog sales funnel system will save you years of trial and error.

What is a Sales Funnel?

If you are a little unsure on exactly what a sales funnel is and how exactly it can create massive amounts of success, drive loads of high quality traffic to your business, and create massive revenue….we’re going to take a quick dive into what a sales funnel is and why you absolutely need it to scale your income online.

A Sales Funnel is a consumer focused marketing model which illustrates the theoretical customers journey towards the purchase of a product or service.

When people hear the phrase “Sales Funnel” they think of sleazy sales pitches like “You can’t live without this product. Buy today!” OR they just feel plain ole disgusting “tricking or manipulating” people into buying their product.

I want you to know that a Sales Funnel is not either of those things and if you feel that way after you put your funnel in place, you’re doing it all wrong my friend.

What not to do before or after putting your sales funnel in place

I would hate to see you put your awesome blog sales funnel in place and then start falling down the sales funnel rabbit hole again and start thinking that you have to do it another way to see results.

It’s absolutely crucial that you don’t do this!

If you’re a blogger who wants to monetize your blog or haven’t seen the monthly income you’ve been hoping for just yet, this message is especially for you! This simple sales funnel system is ESPECIALLY for you!

I’ve seen it work time and time again with many of my students inside Unlock Your Biz: for Bloggers.

“It’s literally so crazy how most of the articles say that in order to make money from your blog it will take a very long time and you will only make a little. What you’re teaching us is truly a GAME CHANGER for sure! It’s right on time! – Khalea

I’m sharing this with you because I don’t want you to take what I’m saying lightly, this works!

The before math

There are a couple of things that would already need to be in place before you set up your blog sales funnel.

Imagine this, you’re having a party and you invite a ton of people over for a party but when they show up, no ones home and the lights are off. All of your guest will end up leaving.

That’s NOT what you want!

Let’s view your blog in that same perspective.

Here’s a quick check list for you so that you know for sure you have everything you need to get the wheels rolling on your simple sales funnel system:

Target Audience:

If you’ve worked super hard on your blog for months and have heard crickets, this is for you. In most cases, it’s not that your idea isn’t great or that you chose the wrong niche, it’s just simply that your target audience isn’t able to find you.

Either way, no worries, there’s a specific reason for that and you can fix it today!

The best way to learn more about who your target audience is so that you can start attracting them to you in droves is to conduct some pure target market research.

The more target market research, the better! You’ll quickly start to notice who your target audience is, what they want from you and how you can help them.

Offer:

After you are crystal clear on who your target audience is, you can then offer them something paid that you know for sure they’ll need!

You would need to have a paid offer or product already set up and ready to go so that when customers/clients start buying (because they will) there will be no buffer time between them putting in their payment details and receiving what they paid for.

Opt-in (s):

An opt-in is a lead magnet that entices people to start their journey deeper into your sales funnel. For most bloggers, this is the first form of personal contact that you’ll be making with your potential customer/client.

It’s super important that you’re offering your audience something tangible in return for their email address. It reinforces the idea in their mind that you are trust worthy and always available to provide value to them.

If you really want to go for the “wow factor” and build EVEN MORE trust on the front end, you can create a landing page for your mailing list opt-in to show case more details about what they’ll receive once they enter in their email address.

If you want to check out a quick example of an opt-in landing page, click here.

Email list:

Once your amazing opt-in is set up, you want to strengthen your personal connection with your potential customer/client through a series of emails. This is where you really let your personality shine bright like a diamond.

If they’ve made it this far into your blog sales funnel system, they are already so invested in you. An email is very personal and most people don’t trust just anyone with it. So if you’ve got even one person on your email list from this system, congratulations…you’re on the right track!

One person who has an insane amount of trust for you is better than 1,000 random strangers just sitting on your blog.

Would you rather have 1 paid customer or 1,000 non-paying customers?

As soon as each person joins to your email list, you want to give them something extremely valuable. There should be no buffer time between them giving you their email address and them receiving something valuable in return.

After they receive what they opted in for, over the course of 3 – 5 days you want to keep close contact with them so that they get to know you more, like you more and trust you even more!

After 3 –  5 days of emails invite them to purchase your paid offer. At this point, they’ll have very little doubt that what you’re offering them is absolute pure GOLD!

It’s a no brainer!

You want your paid offer/product to be a “no brainer” for your target audience.

Why am I Sharing this With you for Free?

Before we get into exactly how you can implement these three simple but crucial steps, I want to address a question that you might be thinking. “If this works so well, then why is she sharing it for free?” Because I was you not too long ago!

I would wake up super early, spend hours researching on Pinterest and Google hoping to find something to help me monetize my blog.

It quickly went from something I enjoyed and was super passionate about to something I dreaded and pushed off for weeks at a time. I started to feel like a failure when that wasn’t the case AT ALL!

I want you to know that you’re not a failure and you’re in the right place! I was you only a few short years ago and now I’m projecting to hit six-figures this year!

YOU CAN TOO!

Initial Contact

Creating valuable free content will be your fist point of initial contact. Your target audience will need to know, like and trust you before jumping right in with selling to them.

Your free and valuable content should ALWAYS be transactional. Transactional content is created with the purpose of leading your audience somewhere else after consuming.

The best way to implement this would be to always add a link or CTA (call to action) to the end of each piece of content.

This will allow your audience to dive deeper into your sales funnel.

Personal Connection 

After your target audience takes action on your transactional content, you want to always attempt to make a personal connection with them.

There are many different ways to personally connect with your target audience. If your audience doesn’t know you, like you or trust you, it will be really hard for them to make the decision to spend money on what you’re offering them.

We want to help them make the shift in their mind from “ah, it’s okay. I can do without this” to “I absolutely need this”!

Imagine this: you’re super stoked about this new movie that’s coming out so you start telling all of your friends about it, and then they get super stoked about it too…then before you know it, you’re all headed to the movies to watch this really amazing movie.

Money at that point becomes a non-factor. You’re not thinking about how much the movie will cost, you’re thinking about how you absolutely need to see it.

We want to help our potential customers/clients make that shift in their minds.

The Pitch

After completing step one and step two, the pitch is easy. At this point, they should already be sold.

I don’t really like the word “sold” or “selling” because you’re not really “selling”, you’re offering a solution to someone who absolutely NEEDS it.

Knowing this fact, your pitch should NOT be pushy. This is crucial and the point at which a lot of bloggers, entrepreneurs and online business owners go wrong.

You simply want to invite them to purchase your paid offer because you truly believe it could help them.

They can and will feel your true intentions through your approach.

I know without a doubt that with this simple sales funnel system, you’ll be making sales in no time!

That’s why I want to leave you with a check list of questions to ask yourself to make sure everything is always running smoothly:

  • How does my potential customer/client first hear about me?
  • How am I going to entice them to want to learn more from me?
  • How am I going to start a relationship with them?
  • How am I going to introduce them to my paid offer or product?
  • How can I educate them about my paid offer or product?
  • How am I going to ask for the sale?

I’m projecting to hit six-figures this year off this simple blog sales funnel system alone.

Everything I do goes back to these three core tips: Make the initial contact, build a personal connection, sell the offer/product.

6 Tips For Success Online

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_08_27_6-tips-for-success-online_

The fact that you’re reading this blog post say’s a lot about your character. You’re someone whose willing to do the leg work to get to where you want to be online and I can respect you for that.

Before I unload this amazing list of extremely helpful tips on you, I want you to know and remember something important. Whenever you’re feeling like you can’t succeed digitally please remember this next paragraph…

It is 2018, exactly 20 years ago the world wide web was created and it has advanced into the most powerful tool in the world today. There is NO reason why you should not become successful online. All of the tools for you to succeed exist (& here’s a secret, if you’re willing to dig around long enough, you can find all the tools online for FREE. Anything that anyone is selling online is out there for free if you’re willing to look hard enough for it.) 

Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s jump right into these MAJOR tips for your success online:

Have a Purpose

You may not know what your purpose in life is, but as an online business owner what you should know for sure is the purpose of your website/blog. I cannot stress this enough which is why it’s number one on the list.

If you don’t know the purpose of your website/blog and you start to build your audience, it is very likely that majority of the content you present to them wont be tailored specifically for them. If this is the case, your engagement will suffer.

I highly suggest finding the purpose of your website/blog first and the rest will follow.

Have a Strategy

All of the top dogs have a clear strategy. I personally suffered with this for half a year when I first started UYS. Everyday, I would just wake up and wing it and eventually I found myself getting frustrated. I would sit in front of the computer for hours completely uninspired.

With a bomb strategy in place, you hit the ground running! Every single day, I know exactly what I should be working on.

You’ll be much more productive with a strategy than without one.

This is the #1 thing majority of suffering online entrepreneurs are missing. VALUABLE CONSISTENT CONTENT! (I myself still struggle with being consistent from time to time.)

They focus on the sale more often then the value of the actual content.

Have you ever came across an extremely boring looking blog or site and the owner is making a full-time income off their business? I can guarantee you 100% that the content they’re producing is valuable and consistent.

Focus on the value and consistency of your content and the funds will follow.

Most entrepreneurs gain fast success online by being present every-single-day! Remind your audience everyday that you’re still here rooting for them and to help.

Have a Marketing Strategy

This may seem like a no brainer to some, but a lot of digital entrepreneurs (especially beginners) don’t have any kind of marketing strategy in place and even worse, they’re not using SEO. 

If you’re someone who has yet to put a marketing strategy in place, I highly encourage you to check out the the Free Sales & Growth Training. It is short, sweet, and to the point. (I myself have used the exact tips in this training to start blogging full-time.)

Focus on the Numbers

Most people don’t like numbers, I used to be like most people until I learned something really cool about numbers that I’m going to share with you today…

If you start to like numbers, they’ll start to like you back. I hated dealing with numbers all the way up until I built UYS. If I wanted UYS to be successful I needed to focus on the facts and there’s no easier way to do that than focusing on analytics.

It doesn’t matter how many platforms you’re using to run your digital business, you need track your analytics to see how you’re doing daily, weekly, and on a monthly basis. The numbers don’t lie!

Educate Yourself

This is another one that some may think is a no brainer but it’s actually pretty common for online entrepreneurs to give up after the 6 month mark. One of the main reasons is because there’s no more inspiration or creativity left.

When we come up with cool, new and creative idea’s, our brain is pulling it from something that we’ve already seen, read, or tried before.

If you’re not constantly exposing yourself to new cool things, your brain will run out of things to pull from. (In other words, the well will run dry.)

It is said that most successful business owners read about 40 books a year, and most successful bloggers read new articles weekly!

If you haven’t been educating yourself as much lately, I challenge you to learn something new related to your success online daily!

Do You Really Need a Blog, or Do You Just Need a Site?

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_04_30_do-you-really-need-a-blog-or-do-you-just-need-a-site_This is going to be short, sweet, and to the point because it seems to be a major question that everyone has when starting out in their online entrepreneurship journey. “Do I need a blog or a regular site?” I want you guys to read this article thoroughly because being an online entrepreneur is not exactly easy-peezy but totally worth it. The goal for everyone should be to work smarter not harder!

Throughout my blogging journey, I’ve seen a lot and I’ve answered a lot of question’s but out of everyone I’ve observed and consulted it really just boils down to one major question.

Are you doing more than you need to for your business?

I may get a lot of backlash from this blog post being that there’s a lot of bloggers claiming that if you have a business, you NEED a blog.

That’s not necessarily the case for every business. In some cases, it can hurt you more than help you! You may just need a site that say’s here’s what I’m offering, and here’s how you can get it.

Even though I don’t offer it as a service, a lot of my viewers email me asking if I’d be willing to help them start up their blog. Although I’m willing to help either way, after talking about their business plans and goals, I often times find out that a site would be more beneficial to them, especially if their main focus is to sell.

Having a blogging site vs. just a regular site does not determine the amount of profits or traffic you will bring in to your site, your marketing strategy does.

Here are a few questions to take into consideration when making your choice:

  • Do you like writing?
  • Do you have or can make the extra time to be consistent with posting quality content?
  • Do you already have a solid following, and what are they used to? (They may or may not need the extra content.)
  • Does your business require you to build a relationship/rapport with your viewers? For an example, you may just have a clothing store. Unless you’re teaching others how to sell clothes or something of that sort, there’s no need for a blog.

Hopefully those questions can help you guys out big time, especially if you’re new to this world.

Here’s a few detailed reason’s why I DON’T recommend blogging if you answered “no” to majority of the questions above:

  • If you don’t like writing, in my professional opinion I wouldn’t recommend building a blog on your site. This is coming from a place of love for your business. I believe there’s room for everyone to be a successful online entrepreneur with the right strategy and marketing tools. If you don’t like writing, it will show in your articles which will hurt your reputation. Stick with your strong points and build on them to make them stronger! It’s totally okay if your weakness is writing, you can work on it, I just wouldn’t recommend making it the focus of your business.
  • Let’s just face it, no matter how productive you are there are just some things we don’t have time for. Unless you can afford to pay someone to write regularly on your blog, you’re going to be doing most of the work. If you cannot free up the time to write a ton of content, that is totally okay! Without my super tight schedule, I wouldn’t have the time either. There are online entrepreneurs kicking butt with a simple Linktree site, and others with a fabulous Shopify site. Neither platforms are made for blogging but both are used by top entrepreneurs who bring in major profits each month!
  • If you already have a solid following that is amazing! Especially if you built it in a world where everyone now believes you need a blog to generate major traffic. If you have loyal customers or a certain type of branding or business style/way of doing things that your viewers are used to, I don’t recommend straying too far away from that. Two things can happen if you do, your viewers will grow to love it or they will dislike it. If they dislike it, that can be reputation suicide which will be hard to come back from.

Remember, the goal is to work smarter not harder.

How to SEO a Blog Post and Website

Tired of pouring your heart and soul into your website, writing valuable content and hearing crickets?

No worries, you’re in the right place. I’m going to help you go from hearing crickets to having a community of raving fans so that you can start making the income you know you deserve and start truly living the “laptop lifestyle”.

There’s truly only three key things you need to know and learn to master SEO:

  • How to niche down effectively
  • Keyword and key phrase research
  • How to write 2,000+ word articles that keep your audience informed and engaged

If you’re wanting to boost your website ranking in search results across the board, SEO is the way to go. Actually, to increase your ranking in search results, it is vital! If you’re not sure what exactly SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is as of yet, here is the textbook definition:

Search Engine Optimization:

The process of increasing the number of visitors to a website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.

To sum things up for you, it makes your website closer to the top of the page which means more views and clicks for you.

If you knew you could learn one skill that would in return help you generate thousands of traffic and would later result in thousands of dollars so that you could start living out your “laptop lifestyle”…wouldn’t you want to learn that skill?

Just a heads up in case you’re interested: 

Right now, my powerful SEO course on how to attract your target audience, 10X your traffic and blog income in the next 90 days is 75% off. I wont be offering it for much longer so if you’re really serious about growing your traffic, head on over there now and snag this amazing deal!

 

The Before Math

Before looking into SEO and how you can increase your traffic, we want to make sure the people that are viewing your content actually need what you’re offering, otherwise all of your hard work would be done in vain and I don’t want that for you.

All it takes is a bit of quick target market research to be sure you’re targeting the right people with your content.

When targeting the right people, search engine optimization will not only become a lot easier for you but you’ll find that it’s also a lot easier to monetize your blog too because then you’d have a target audience full of people who need what you have to offer and are willing to buy.

I bet you’re now wondering “perfect, how do I do the market research”.

It’s pretty simple. There are many different ways to conduct target market research but the easiest way to find out what content you should be creating to attract the right kind of people to you is to simply ask them.

You would be surprised how many people would be willing to openly tell you what they’d like to see on your blog. Compile a list and use that list to pull from whenever you’re creating content.

Now that you know for sure you are creating content that your audience wants and needs…it’s time to dig into search engine optimization so that you can start attracting them to you in droves by the thousands.

Think, thousands of raving fans looking to you as the “go to” person!

This is the most powerful part because it’s what allowed me to make over $10,000 alone in the last few months.

Search engine optimization basics:

The most important tip everyone should know when it comes to search engine optimization and how to make it work for you is to learn the power of keywords and key phrases.

When I say “key words” and “key phrases” I mean little pieces of gold. It’s the basis of how search engines (yep including Google) organizes each piece of content. Once you master using the right keywords within the right context, it’s only a matter of time before your website lands first page.

There’s many different ways to find key words that work for you and your niche, the first step is putting yourself inside your target audiences shoes. If you were them, what would you be typing into Google?

Think of different words and phrases your target audience would use or questions they would ask and then use that to attract them.

If you want specifics like:

  • Where do I look for my target audience to ask them questions
  • What specific questions do I ask them to get the answers I need
  • How do I know if a keyword will perform well
  • In what context should I be using the keyword/phrase for it to perform it’s best

Then I highly recommend taking my course Search Engine Optimization 101, which is currently available for 75% off. Enrollment wont stay open for long being that I have to take it down soon to help those who have already enrolled.

If you were completely in the dark about it till now, Search Engine Optimization 101, is a course I created to:

  • Give you my day to day guide on exactly how I do powerful market research to attract my target audience to me on a regular basis
  • Teach you everything you need to know about search engine optimization
  • Teach you exactly how/where to find powerful keywords/phrases
  • Teach you exactly how to structure your post so that your audience see’s it’s value so that you’re able to help them by selling to them

Sharing this with you because I just don’t want you to miss out…I always get a ton of emails after I close a course and this one is powerful! With this special link, I’m offering 75% off to those who read my blog. There’s no code needed. 

How many Keywords or phrases do I use on one page?

The sky is the limit. Of course, there’s a right and a wrong way to go about this which we will dig deep into.

Now, I’m not saying to go and plaster a lot of words that mean the same thing into one post or on one page to rank in search engines.

The algorithm will eventually pick up on that especially if the keywords/phrases are not related to the actual content.

You want to use as many related key words and phrases as possible in a way that it fits into the content of your article or website copy.

The best way to go about this is to use long tailed key phrases: instead of a simple keyword, a long tailed key phrase is more than one word put together to either almost or fully form a sentence.

Again, we want to put ourselves in our target audiences shoes. Imagine what they’re typing into Google and use it as inspiration. (This is why doing market research the right way is so important.)

Example of a long tailed key phrase: “How to rank first page in Google”

I go way more in depth with you on this in Search Engine Optimization 101 so that you’re completely in the loop about what to do and what not to do. I’ve saved hundreds of bloggers from years of trial and error.

I’m super passionate about this because I was there at one point and I completely understand what it’s like to feel like you’re doing everything right but at the same time still feel like you’re not doing enough.

It can be super discouraging and I want to be the bringer of good news! There’s another way for you, an easier way.

Click here to learn more about Search Engine Optimization 101 before enrollment closes. Don’t forget it’s 75% off today which makes it only $25 and there’s no code needed. This offer will be going away really soon!

Do I need an SEO Plugin?

This might trigger some people but no. I know a lot of bloggers will read this and cringe a little bit but the truth is, with or without an SEO plugin, with the right strategy you can rank in the same amount of time.

I’m sharing this from a place of love. I’ve had many clients express to me that they’ve tried everything to gain traffic and then they go on to say “I even installed Yoast SEO”. It’s not harming your traffic but it’s not making much of a difference either.

The same goes for any SEO plugin. Myself and many of my clients are living proof that you don’t need a plugin to boost your ranking. In fact, I don’t suggest it…because you can gain so much more powerful results with only a simple system put in place once staying consistent.

My strategies are based on what Google 100% tells us works.

How long does it take to rank first page?

How long does it take to rank first page on Google is the most famous question I’ve received from those who enroll in Search Engine Optimization 101 and I love answering this question because it allows me to help you set realistic expectations.

It takes Google between four days and six weeks to crawl (or index) a new site. There are a few people who have claimed their site has been indexed in less than four days but the average time period is around four days to six weeks.

Once Google crawls your site, you’ll then be searchable through the search engine. This means that you’ll be in the results but may not be on the first page just yet. Once your SEO results start to truly kick in, it’s averaged at about four to six months before you’ll start ranking first page.

This is all assuming you’ve found your flow and started implementing SEO effectively on your site and blog post.

What to do if SEO seems overwhelming?

If you just started studying search engine optimization or you’ve been working with it for a while…I completely understand how it can seem overwhelming.

A quick reminder: I was there!

For an entire year, I avoided search engine optimization like the plague. It confused me and every time I sat down to try and figure it out I got confused even more.

After many months of trial and error I found a simple strategy that has worked for many of my clients and myself included.

I designed Search Engine Optimization 101 so that the only overwhelming feeling you might get is how you’re going to organize all of your amazing content ideas that are 100% certain to rank high in search engines once published…and even then, I created an organizational system for that!

The offer will be expiring soon!

What to takeaway from this:

Anyone can learn how to make search engine optimization work for them. I’m not special, I truly mean that. I have helped so many people from so many backgrounds grow and monetize their blog so I know first hand that YOU CAN TOO!

When I first started, it was from absolute scratch with zero experience. I had no idea what I was doing and now I secure $8,000 – $10,000 each month with my blog.

How To Turn Your Viewers Into Buyers

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2018_03_24_how-to-turn-viewers-into-buyers_Before I decided to create unlockingyoursuccess.online/ I owned two other websites. They both turned out to be a major fail. The vision was there, I knew exactly where I wanted my business to go and what I wanted it to do. However, I was missing one very important aspect, a marketing strategy.

When most people see the word marketing, they think of pushy advertisements, and numbers. Trust me when I say that I am not exempt, I was like most people.

I thought marketing would be hard, and expensive so I just didn’t do much of it. I shared my websites on social media a few times and that was it. (big mistake)

Now, I love finding new ways to market my business. No seriously, it’s my definition of fun.

In fact, I love it so much, I’m going to show you exactly how to market your business like a pro.

So, grab your pen and paper. (& possibly coffee) cause it’s going to be a long one.

Personalize your marketing strategy

I can’t even count on two hands how many times I’ve clicked on a great looking pin just to head over to their blog, and everything sounds robotic. Almost like, they’ve copied and pasted a script right off google.

You do not want that to be you, people will run from your website. It’s great to use guides as an example of how your marketing strategy should be, but you always want your readers to feel your personality.

Because your viewers can’t physically see you, there needs to be an indication that there’s actually a real person behind the screen that understands their problems and can actually help them. That indication is your personality. You can never have too much personality in your brand. It’s what makes your business stand out from all the copy-cats.

Spoon feed your viewers | Don’t be a salesman

One major mistake with my first two websites was that it was information overload. It was like I just kind of threw info products and prices at them as soon as they clicked on a link. I had a salesman mindset which came off as pushy. It wasn’t genuine, and my viewers could totally tell.

Treat your viewers as if they’re your babies (new born babies). They’re coming to your site for the first time, or reading your blog post for the first time so, this is all new to them. They’re hoping to learn something that they’ve never been taught before and they’re expecting you to teach it to them.

Here’s a check list that you should swear by:

1.) Build a relationship with your reader within the first few sentences. If you aren’t doing this, 9/10 of your readers are most likely clicking on to the next page without fully reading your content. They need to trust you. An example would be, “I want to help you because…..”

2.) After you’ve built rapport, jump right into the meat of your content. No fluff! I repeat, no fluff. It’s so annoying to read an entire blog post only to realize I didn’t actually take anything valuable away from it, and that it was all just a evil mind trick to get me to click on some pricey info product.

If you do this to your readers, they will most likely never read anything you post again. Which brings me to my next point…..

Give away a ton of free stuff

I know, it sounds crazy but trust me when I say this is a game changer.

There’s a ton of salesy people out there who will tell you “Put a price on everything.” Wrong!

Giving away valuable free content is the key to your success.

Not only will it drive an insane amount of traffic to your site, it will also build trust between you and your viewers. They may not buy the first time around but, after coming to your site for a while they’ll begin to trust that you’re not feeding them a bunch BS. So, when you do decide to present them with a sale, they’ll trust that their investment would help them out in the long run.

Give them proof

When it comes to buying a product or trying out something, nobody like to be first. I know, it’s tragic. Everyone want’s to know that someone else tried it out before them so they know it’s something they can trust.

How to give proof?

  • testimonials
  • analytics
  • reviews

This is not your show

It took me a while to realize that my website is not TheShannonShow.com. Yes, I’m running it but, it’s not about me even in the slightest. Unless you’re running a lifestyle blog (even then it’s tricky) nobody cares about your life. I know it’s sounds mean but it’s true.

Make your website all about them. What did they come to your site for? How can you help them?

Write everything as if you’re speaking directly to them face to face. As if it’s just you and your reader sitting down together for the first time.

Follow your visitors

I know, it sounds creepy right? But seriously, follow them!

When your visitors click off your site, that’s it they’re gone. There’s no way for you to keep in contact with them, like ever again.

Unless………….

You create opt ins for them. This way you will always be connected to them.

There is one major way to create opt ins for your visitors.

An email list. This is the most effective way!

And the last and most important thing is to make sure you place these opt-in EVERYWHERE!

Time to wrap things up
