I once used the $7 script to manage sales of a MRR product I bought. One of the most powerful features of this script is that can automatically redirect your customers to a one-time-offer. But I just ignored it and didn't think I could make money with the silly OTO.
I tried Adwords, banner advertising - any advertising methods that could get me new customers. And I did made commissions - I am not complaining about those tactics.
But one day something told me that I was totally wrong about what I was doing. I accidentally set up a one-time-offer. Just a little change I did. And the results. You guess?
Actually shocked me. Commissions increased 50% literally "Overnight"! About 1 out of 5 my customers took the one-time-offer!
I realized that one of my biggest gold mine I neglected is my existing customers!
So in a word, I should use backend selling to sell my existing customers again and again http://www.topgamehaynhat.net/threads/wow-classic-gold-guide-in-world-of-warcraft.42400/ and again!
The reasons can be listed as follows:
1.They are ready to pay.
They just bought from you and now they have an "open-to-buy" frame of mind! You can easily ask them to buy more from you with your OTOs.
2.They do have money to pay.
They already bought something from you so they are not some kind of freebie seekers!
3. They are familiar with you and your business, so they'll more likely to return.
If you provide them with quality products and make them trust you with their money for the first time, they will buy from you again and again!
Conclusion: Repeat customers = repeat sales!
You won't lose anything when you just add a one-time-offer but a lot to gain. If you are not using OTOs to boost your revenue, start using them today!
Writing a blog is something you could do for lots of reasons. You could share ideas, talk about your life or blog about a hobby of yours.
But if you are a writer - or you want to earn money by doing online writing jobs - then you should create a blog to help you get jobs and make that a reality.
What some writers don't understand is that being a successful writer is all about visibility. If you think of it purely in terms of what you get out of it now, you won't get the bigger payoffs that are waiting down the road.
You're probably thinking, 'Hey why should I write for nothing on my own writing blog when I can get paid to write for other people?'
That's a very good point. But think of it like this instead. You are building up a body of work here that is accessible by lots of people. This gives you more than one benefit in the long term:
1. You are polishing your writing skills and showing people what you are capable of. This is great news because any potential client that happens along can see what you are made of before they contact you. Your odds of winning jobs from your writing blog should increase over time.
2. You can write and sell products of your own to a mailing list you build up from your blog readers. This takes time too, but the bigger the list gets the more you can expect to earn from it.
3. You can earn money through affiliate opportunities. Find products that other writers are likely to find useful and become an affiliate for them. This brings in yet another stream of income.
4. You can reach a wider and bigger audience the more time goes on. In a while you may not actually need to go out and hunt for jobs any more - they might all come to you.
So you see, writing a blog of your own has plenty of benefits. You just need to tap into them yourself.
