Inside this Episode

178_Email_Sale_PinterestHow To Build Your Email List – Part 3 – The Sale

If we’re building a business, we all know that we need to make money from that business. So, this next step in this 3-part series is to help you make that Sale the right way.

So, how do we do it?

In today’s episode, I walk you through those processes of understanding your ideal target person up until making that sale.

  • Identify your ideal target person.
  • Understand the goals of your ideal target person.
  • Identify the things needed to accomplish their goals.
  • Identify products or resources that would help them accomplish their goals.
  • List these items  and sort them, keeping in mind two important things.
  • Decide what to sell via blog or email list or both.

In addition to that, I give you some tips on how to successfully create a well thought out email sequence that would eventually suggest to your subscribers the right product or service at the right time.

After which, I will walk you through how I have applied all of these processes in making sales in my two blogs – Become a Blogger and Interactive Biology.

How to Subscribe To The Show

  1. The story about the pushy guy really hit me. But he is the stereo-type of many lists I have been on.

    This was amazingly full bodied, coupled with your great sense of humor. You really put things together just the way I needed it .

    One of the most important things I got is this. I started to remember the basics that are now second nature and forget that people don’t know what I know. That I can help.

    Like hosting, blog content, plugins, overwhelm and logistics of website, posting, etc. I didn’t want to send all newbie emails because they aren’t all beginners.

    So you sparked and idea. I am going to start on some freebies they can download from my site. Most of it is already there, like your study guide.

    Hey Leslie, maybe one of your podcasts could be on the logistics of how to do that.

    How to make it an ebook then make it downloadable. And how to present that on the site. Maybe info-graphics, Don’t know much about them

    .I am slowly figuring out what to do (THANK YOU) but HOW to do it is still quite a block. Your new life “on line” has really sparked mine!

    This series has been off the charts for me!

    PS: have a great time with precious Noah! It will be amazing!
